Digitizer stopped working, but touch works - Thinkpad Yoga

2017-05-13, 10:03 AM

Today my digitizer stopped working for the first time since I purchased my Thinkpad Yoga several years ago.

 

Touch screen still works as normal.

 

I don't think it's software related because I dual boot Windows and Ubuntu and it doesn't work in either operating system. Before it would work in both operating systems, and I haven't had any updates since it was last working.

 

Is it possible for the digitizer itself to be broken somehow? I haven't dropped the device or spilled any liquid on it. I've read elsewhere on the forum that the digitizer is powered by a capacitor that is charged within the laptop. Is this still true for Thinkpad Yogas? Are there steps I can take to diagnose the issue?

Just as suddenly as it stopped working, my digitizer pen started working again today. I'm still looking for debugging steps if it stops working again? Does the pen hold some electric charge that can dissipate over time?
