Yoga 3 11: Constant speaker clicking/ticking. No audio

2018-06-29, 0:07 AM

I have used the Yoga 3 11 with no problem for about 1.5 years. A few months ago, the battery died and when I plugged it in to restart, the speakers began emitting a rhythmic clicking/ticking noise. It is constant and occurs every second. The clicking only stops when the sound is muted. When audio is playing, nothing is heard besides the clicking. Even when headphones are plugged in, audio is crackled and distorted.

 

I have tried updating, uninstalling, and rolling back the Realtek High Definition audio driver. I’ve run the Lenovo Service Bridge. I even ordered and installed new right and left speakers and this didn’t solve the issue. It is out of warranty and I’m not sure what else I could try besides updating Windows. I now use the laptop with the audio driver disabled. Even then, the clicking sound occurs for about 10 seconds upon startup.

 

Thank you.

Thank you Karani for sharing your issue,

Have you by chance found any solution ?

I purchased a new speaker and that did not solve the issue for me. I just leave the speaker disconnected so I don't have to deal with the clicking. Let me know if anything worked for you.

Karini described my YOGA 3 11 symptom exctly and for a similar reason.  My charger cord was faulting when the clicking sound (right speaker only) started.  The charger/cord was replaced but that did not help.  I do get scratchy sound quality from the headphone jack however.  I even reinstalled Windows 10 which was painfully long.  No change. It's maddening that the clicking persists even with the speakers disabled.  I noticed that the "test your microphone" setting bar shows a response that matches the clicking sound.  Weird.  Fortunately the bluetooth speaker does work so I just use it and try to ignore the clicking.
