yoga 2 pro dark screen/constantly low brightness

2014-01-18, 3:00 AM

Hello!

I just got my yoga 2 a couple of days ago. I was really exited but this is a total turn-off.

First when I fired it up I noticed the screene was dark so I was doing what ever I could to set it right. Reading online, installing drivers auto brightness bla, bla...

 

To get to the point. I finaly settled with the dark screen when nothing seemd to work. But earlier today I went to the local electronics store and I noticed they had the same model set up for testing and viewing. That screen looked crisp and sharp, really bright aswell. So I figured there must be something wrong with my computer alone.

 

Is this a regular problem and what should I do?

Thanks

 

best regards, your swedish "lenovo user" Jonas

Have you turned off auto-dimming?

I think you need to do it in two places - one is the 'old' control panel Power settings and the other is the new Charms Bar --> Settings --> Change PC Settings --> PCs and Devices --> Power and sleep.

I've been much happier with the brightness of my screen since I did this.

Yonaz, when you adjust the screen brightness with the F11/F12 keys does it visually change? Do you get a brightness change indicator in the upper left hand area of the display?

Bring up the charms bar (swipe screen from right). Select Settings option. Under settings bar press the Screen button on the bottom right and a slider will appear on the screen. Try to adjust the brightness using that. It may be your F12 (brightness) key isn't responding.

Can you be abit more specific on where it is in the old controll panel? Where ever I look it says that auto dimming is turned off. I started to think that its a production error.

It is off.... Must be production error am I right?

Where can I get in touch with lenovo employees who know this **bleep**!? :(

Everyone I ask says that it must be auto brightness, but its not. The screen is just dark and autobrightness is allready disabled.

I suggest returning the computer to where you purchased it.
