Thinkpad Yoga touchscreen off and on (and off)

2014-07-22, 23:53 PM

I have a Thinkpad Yoga, 8.1, 8 Mb.

 

The touchscreen recently began working on and off. The pen works, but the finger touch isn't recognized.

 

I've disabled the Device Manager/Humaninterface/USB Input devices powermangement.


Sometimes a reboot works, today it hasn't.


What do I do?

i have had this problem before, and it could be hardware based.

One of the sure way to find out whether this is a hardware based issue, is to go into the BIOS menu, and see whether you can navigate the BIOS menu based on touch.

Here is a demonstration

yep. Much easier to describe the problem/solution using a short video.

Keep us updated with your repair result.
