Yoga 920 Function keys F4-mic F7-airplane mode F8-camera stopped working

2017-12-15, 12:22 PM

When I initially booted my Yoga 920, pressing F1 F2 F3 work fine for volume controls with a UI prompt for the function.

Pressing F4 toggled the mic mute with a UI prompt.

F5 could be used to refresh a webpage.

F6 toggled the use of the touchpad, but did not show a UI prompt.

F7 toggled airplane mode with UI prompt.

F8 toggled camera function with UI prompt.

F9 locks fine.

F10 works fine too.

F11 F12 toggles brightness with UI prompt.

 

I don't know what happened along the way, but now F4 (mic), F7 (airplane mode), F8 (camera) stopped working. Nothing happens when I press the buttons. I'm running Windows 10 Home, version 1709, OS Build 16299.125.

 

Maybe someone can help me in restoring the functions of those buttons? And additionally, maybe add a UI prompt for F6 (touchpad)?

 

Solved! See the solution

Okay, well I found the problem. I guess the Lenovo Utility is required to run in order for the F4 F6 and F7 functions for work properly. I had it set to disable in the Startup items in the task manager. Enabled the utility, now they work. There's still no UI prompt for or any indicator for the touchpad toggle though.

2 person found this solution to be helpful.

This helped me too

I had this same problem the only difference is that somehow Lenovo Utility got uninstalled from my system. So, I had to reinstall it from Lenovo Drivers... But thank you for the solution.
