Yoga 900 Monitor only works when connected to external Monitor

2021-02-20, 2:55 AM

I have a Yoga 900-13ISK2 Laptop (ideapad) - Type 80UE running Windows 10 which recently only shows the laptop display when connected to certain external monitors. 
Also, if I connect it to my TV the monitor used to also display, but no longer is detected.

When booting up the "Lenovo" will show on the monitor if it's connected or not, however if not connected to an external monitor it goes blank (backlight is still on)/

I've tried checking that everything is updated (all but the latest as of 2 days before this posting) and run diagnostic with no issues detected. 

I'd be most appreciative of any suggestions.

Welcome to the Community Forums Elliott_Brecht!


Nice to have you here!


It would be advisable to get in touch with our Lenovo phone support at 877-453-6686 or click this link instead and enter your Yoga 920's serial number for other options and for them to check its warranty entitlement as this may seem a possible hardware concern with the display/screen itself and may require repairs for it to work/function properly again.
