X1 Yoga 2nd Rotation Lock Won't Release

2018-12-18, 20:39 PM

I have an X1 Yoga 2nd.  The rotation lock has frozen and will not release.  The control in the display settings shows the lock as on, and it is grayed out so that it can't be changed.  I never turned on the lock.  It was rotating properly this morning, but it just stopped.  How do I fixed this?

Are you in laptop mode? It will grey out when in laptop mode. Flip it to tablet and it should allow you to unlock it. Then, choose the orientation you want and flip it back to laptop mode.

I manually changed the display to portrait, and after that the auto rotate started working again.  Thus the problem has disappeared.
