Thinkpad Yoga S1 - touch input does not work in tablet mode

It is a Lenovo Yoga S1 12.5 inch. The touch screen works fine in laptop mode, but as soon as I push the screen back to about 110 degrees, it turns into tablet mode and the touchscreen is disabled 
I need to be able to use the touchscreen while it's in tablet mode.

Re: Thinkpad Yoga S1 - touch input does not work in tablet mode

Hi dudeguy

 

Can you post your full Thinkpad Model number and the Windows version you are using?

 

I don't have an S1, but touch screen is always working, no matter if it is on tablet mode, tent mode , or laptop mode..maybe the touchscreen should only be disabled when the lid is closed or the screen is turned off. It is very strange that it get disabled when you turn it to tablet mode.

 

Just some "trial and error".

- Check Windows Update and try to put any drivers up-to-date.

- Try updating the drivers with Lenovo System Update

- If you are using Windows 10 try install Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion from the Windows Store.

 

I was trying to find something in Windows settings "Pen and Touch" that can disabled the Touch-screen in that way, but I haven't found anything.

Re: Thinkpad Yoga S1 - touch input does not work in tablet mode

Martin,

 

Thanks for the reply. Here are more details about my computer.

 

Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga S1 12.5 Inch Convertable 2 in 1 Touchscreen Ultrabook

Model Number/Type: 20CD-00B1US

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4600 CPU @ 2.10GHz 2.70 GHz

Installed RAM: 8.00 GB (7.89 GB usable)

System type: 64-bit operating system, x64-based procesor

Pen and touch: Pen and full Windows touch support with 10 touch points

 

Windows

Edition: Windows 8.1 Pro

Activation: Windows is activated

 

I'm no genius with computers, but I know my way around. I've tried about once every 2 months for 11 months and it always ends in frustration. It should be such a simple thing to fix.

 

I'm guessing it has some checkmark checked "when in tablet/tent mode turn these things off": keyboard and touchscreen input. I just need to uncheck touchscreen input.

 

I have updated every single thing Lenovo's "Lenovo Solution Center" has to offer. EVERYTHING. I've updated Windows. I've gone to the device Manager and done the "check for driver updates" on every relevant device.

 

 

I'd be up for any suggestions.

 

 

 

Just venting, but I'm really not feeling Lenovo right now.

Maybe it's my fault for buying the first Yoga model before the fixed the kinks, or because I bought it from a (very reputable) third party. There is this problem and how it has inexplicably currupted my hard drives multiple times during large file backups.

Hi Dudeguy.

 

I was checking you model on the support site.

 

There is a "Digitizer Firmware Update for Windows 8.1 (64-bit) - ThinkPad Yoga". Maybe you can give it  try.

 

Also I will also try to update "Synaptics Trackpad Firmware Update for Windows 8.1" and update the driver "Synaptics ThinkPad UltraNav Driver for Windows 8.1"

 

I can also suggest you the following ideas.

 

- Check Windows Update, and see if you are updated with patched and driver.

- Check Lenovo System Update - you already did that.

- I'm not sure on Windows 8.1 but I found Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion applications usefull from time to time, you may want to install those too.

- Check your model support site and check the drivers, sort them by date and see if there is some driver that Lenovo Sytem Update or Lenovo Companion missed to update.

 

Regards.

Re: Thinkpad Yoga S1 - touch input does not work in tablet mode

MartinIturbide,

 

Thanks a lot for the suggestions. As I type this nothing has worked so far.

 

 I tried this, but it told me I already had this version.

 

I tried this and it gave me an error "Reflash cannot find firmware updates for the devices on this system." With the title on the window "SynReflash" and the only option was 'OK'. So I had to hit okay.


 I did this and it didn't change anything.

 

 

I can also suggest you the following ideas.

 

- Check Windows Update, and see if you are updated with patched and driver.

- Check Lenovo System Update - you already did that.

- I'm not sure on Windows 8.1 but I found Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion applications usefull from time to time, you may want to install those too.

- Check your model support site and check the drivers, sort them by date and see if there is some driver that Lenovo Sytem Update or Lenovo Companion missed to update.

 

I tried all of these and nothing worked.

 

 

Thanks a lot for the suggestions, but nothing has worked.

Maybe my screen is damaged. If so it has been ever since I got the laptop as a gift. But how could it be damaged if it can recieve pen input perfectly fine in tablet mode?

Hi

 

I'm clueless, by itself on Windows 10 is hard to disable the touch screen, what some people are doing is to disable the touch screen driver on the "Windows Device Manager". I can not belive how easy Window 10 disable the touch screen on your case.

 

Maybe someone else can share some other ideas.
