Thinkpad Yoga F1 LED constantly on

The F1 LED doesn't go off, it doesn't matter if windows is muted or not, clicking it does un/mute but not change the LED.

How can i fix this? ...

Did the latest updates inclusive bios flash. Didn't change anything.

It happens after the laptop was in sleep.

Please fix this bug / problem

Re: Thinkpad Yoga F1 LED constantly on

When you press the key, do you get a volume indicator on the screen? Does the light go off if the indicator drops the X (meaning the system is no longer in mute)?

Re: Thinkpad Yoga F1 LED constantly on

I have the same problem! Smiley Sad

 

Have had my Yoga Ultrabook for about five months. Suddenly, the orange LED on the F1 button indicating "mute"  stays permanently on (the button still works to mute and unmute, but the orange LED will not go off).

 

Would be nice to know what the problem is, and if this can be repaired quickly b/c I don't want to hand over my PC for more than a day or so.

Dear YogaFan

The technician was never able to tell me what the problem really was, they replaced the mainboard and it seemed to have done the trick.
Since the replacement of the mainboard i had the same problem twice, that being not too much of problem. Before it was all the time.


More then a day?
Good luck with that, won't be possible ...

I had to wait 6 weeks for mine

 

Try doing a bios update and pray it will be fixed.

Best Regards

Re: Thinkpad Yoga F1 LED constantly on

I had the same problem but solved it. I had a blutooth head set which was connected and muted. After i deleted it it still was muted and the LED was on although i could not unmute Bluetooth cause it was not connected anymore. After i made a new connection to the blutooth device i could unmute it and now the led is off Smiley Wink

Re: Thinkpad Yoga F1 LED constantly on

Thanks for your reply ozzi789. I  really can't be without my PC for more than a day, so I think I'm just going to put up with it. It's not a huge problem - just a minor annoyance. I may try the BIOS update suggestion when I have time.

 

I hope Lenovo finds out what the issue is (software problem? hardware problem?) so future models don't have this problem.

 

To zackmuc: the Bluetooth didn't seem to be the problem for me. I tried connecting my Bluetooth headset to see if that was the issue, but my headset didn't have a mute button anyway. But thanks anyway.
