Yoga 700 Black screen

It was working perfectly then the screen turned black, light stayed on. I have tried the usual, turn off, turn on, but black screen still. Am I right in thinking this is a previously reported problem? Is the only solution a warranty repair?

Re: Yoga 700 Black screen

Welcome to the Forums Lane.

 

  1. Unplug AC adapter (remove from notebook).
  2. Remove main battery
  3. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds (power drain)
  4. Replace main battery
  5. Replace AC adapter

Update us how it goes.

The Yoga 700 has non-removable battery. Tried removing power supply and holding down on button but still a black screen

Re: Yoga 700 Black screen

Any difference if you start using the Novo button instead of the power button?

I wasn't sure that if I used the Nova button whether I'd lose files

Re: Yoga 700 Black screen

If the Novo button does anything visible it will offer you a menu of options.  You don't have to actually use any of them.

 

Question was more at do you get a screen if you hit Novo?
