Re: Yoga 510 Charging/Black Screen

Check your power management plan. Might even reset it to default and reboot. Sounds like the power settings to turn off the screen after a certain time when plugged in has gone wonky.

Re: Yoga 510 Charging/Black Screen

Whilst scrolling through some age old pages having Googled the problem, i saw the word 'brightness' a few times. So I tapped F11/Brightness and it came back on. No idea why as I certainly hadn't pushed it before.

 

many thanks for your input nontheless!

That IS one of the settings under Power Management. Resetting it to defaults would have done that, too. Sorry you wasted more time Smiley Very Happy 

 

But glad it's resolved. Next time, look at the slider under "plugged in."

Re: Yoga 510 Charging/Black Screen

Same thing happened with my Yoga, out of the blue the screen went black while charging.  I had to hit f11 then f12 to get mine back on.  Thank you for the tip!!
