Yoga2 pro loosing screws

2014-06-09, 17:39 PM

My laptop is 4-5 months old and screws on the bottom are falling out. This Yoga2 has never left the house and is used very little. Where can I obtain screws for the outside case? I've never had a Lenovo drop screws for no reason. My Thinkpad took the life of a road warrior for years and never had a loose screw.

Tighten the screws with a TX3 screw driver.

The screws loosen sometimes because the hinges create more stress on them. I have had this with all my Yoga's. It's normal. Just tighten them now and then and you should be fine my friend. ;-)

By the way, you posted in the wrong forum category.

Cheers!

To keep the screws from falling out, get some Loctite Purple Threadlocker 222.  Take out each screw and coat it with the Loctite; the hole in the tube is big enough to dip the threads into the tube holding it with tweezers.  This is low strength adhesive and should hold them in place even under vibration.

USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.
I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!
