Thinkpad X260 hinge sensor issue?

Suddenly My X260 screeen started getting turned off if I open the lid 150 - 180 degree. Then turned back on if I maintain the angle about 45 -  140 degree. The screen goes off if the angle is less than 45 degree, and getting turned ON again if I completely close the lid (It seems the computer recognized as if the lid is open, when I completely close the lid.)


For the power management option - I set it "Sleep when I close the lid", but it does not work anymore after I started having this problem. Does it have to do with the hinge sensor? It goes to sleep mode (or screen off mode) if the lid angle is 150 - 180 degree or 10-45 degree.

For the reason, I have to completely turn off the system all the time when I'm not using the laptop.  


If anyone knows about this issue, please advise.

Thank you...
