CapsLock & Camera PrivacyMode Bugs in 'interface' - that were not there before!

2020-06-26, 17:39 PM

Hello everyone!

 

I have a ThinkPad P50 (20EQ) which I am 'almost' happy with. I was waiting for some bugs to be fixed in future updates, but long-time nobody-responsible@lenovo-cares, so here I am.

 

  1. Since, around March 2020 (I don't remember the correct time, this might have started a bit earlier or late as well) I am not able to turn OFF 'CapsLock' key normally, with trials I found that - (just below the CapsLock) left Shift key does the job instead. I think CapsLock turn OFF function is wrongly mapped and this might be due to some buggy driver/firmware downloaded via Lenovo Vantage Update.
  2. Also, I have noticed today on 26/June/2020 that - Camera Privacy Mode cannot be toggled ON/OFF "actually" via Lenovo Vantage Toolbar, you have to launch the Lenovo Vantage app and then do it form there. This is new bug, as I was not experiencing issues with toggling Camera Privacy Mode right from Taskbar in previous months, when I was regularly attending virtual meetings.

 

Just curious right now, if anybody else is having similar issue. My last resort would be to clean install Windows after backup, which I last did in 2018.

 

Cheers!

Solved! See the solution

hi

Could you try latest camera driver ? See if it works?

Hi there! Thank you for responding.

 

A few days ago, MS Store updated the Lenovo Vantage to version 10.2006.30.0 So, Camera Privacy Mode is working fine now.

 

But my MAJOR concern is still not resolved. (Point 1 in OP).

 

That - I am unable to turn OFF 'CapsLock' function using the CapsLock Key on the keyboard.

 

It can be turned on normally. But to turn it OFF, I have to press the Left Shift key (just below the CapsLock key). I suspect incorrectly mapped key somewhere in the driver/firmware code.

I would be relieved if this can be solved as soon as possible.

 

Thank you!

Hi Wang,

 

I wonder, if you can also help me with my first concern as mentioned in this post.

 

not able to turn OFF 'CapsLock' key normally

 

It has become pain, while typing. It almost breaks the workflow.

 

Any suggestions on this one! Awaiting response.

 

Thanks!

After long-wait and no response from anyone. I went for clean-install of Windows using Lenovo USB Recovery.

And things are back on track now. CapsLock function not turning OFF is now resolved!

 

Currently running Windows 10 Pro (Build 2004)

Thank you!
