Yoga 2 Pro Screen Rotation Problem

2013-12-03, 22:13 PM

I've just bought a Yoga 2 Pro but the screen rotation has big problems.

 

In Tablet mode (horizontal position) the screen is in vertical position or in horizontal position but upside down.

In Tablet mode (vertical position) the screen is in horizontal position.

 

In other words, the screen has always a wrong position, apart Laptop mode.

 

The lock scrren switch works only when the display is in vertical position (in fact the message appears but the screen rotation isn't locked).

 

I had this problem immediately; updating BIOS and drivers didn't solve it.

 

Please help because the computer cannot be used as a tablet!

 

Regards

I have also seen this happen. Other times, it seems auto rotation just breaks every now and then. I have to restart to get rotation to come back. Other times, I've seen what Philsan described - the rotation logic gets it backwards and I always end up upside down. Again, I have to restart to fix it. Thankfully, Win8.1 restarts extremely quickly, but it's still a major annoyance. Lenovo, please look into this and get it fixed.

This random/occasional rotation problem has been especially bad for me today. I've seen it happen a couple times over the past two months, but even after a reboot today, it continues to occur occasionally.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Screen Rotation Problem

I am having this problem as well. If I am in laptop mode for any length of time, the screen fails to rotate when entering tablet or tent modes. The transition window pops up in each mode, but the screen will not rotate. I have updated all drivers and BIOS. I even updated Lenovo Transition to the latest version but nothing seems to fix it. Actually, that's not entirely true. A restart usually fixes it but that is quite annoying if I have open applications. How do I fix this Lenovo?? I have the i7/8GB/256GB model from Best Buy and the unit was built on 12-25-13. Please help as I do not want to return it.

Does forcing rotation via Control-Alt-Up/Down/Left/Right arrrow key combinations get it back in sync?

I have not tried that. I will next time it happens, though.

So it happened again and the Ctr/Alt/Arrow worked. Any idea why this is happening? Thank you for your help.
