X1 Yoga Second Gen left laptop speaker not working

2017-06-24, 13:15 PM

brand new out the box and the left speaker isnt working. already resintalled the drivers.I am assuming its hardware and not software.

 

Oddly enough when test only the right physical laptop speaker works. However when using wireless or the headphone jack both channels work correctly

UPDATE: well instead of going thru the drama of returning it, I decided to investigate myself. seems the connector to the souncard wasnt fitted in secure. it secures in flat from the top and its not a push in and click type connector. so i secured it again and closed the back.

 

whether this is something from the factory or something during shipping who knows.

 

i hope this doesnt indicate a lack of QC controls on this laptop as this is my first ever Lenovo and i paid @ 2400 USD for it!

Frustrating!  Sorry to hear that.  My Yoga X1 2nd Gen has considerable screen flicker on the lowest 4 brightness settings.  Wondering if that's a hardware issue too since not many other complainers about that yet.

Dear TechSavvy,

Regarding to your flicker issue, I got below comment from development team.

 

This seems to be known issue on OLED model. Flicker happens in low brightness condition when PSR(Panel Self Refesh) is enabled on OLED model.

Lenovo settings has countermeasure for this issue (Flip PSR On/Off according to brightness) but this feature does not work unless opening Lenovo Settings.

We'd like customer to install Lenovo Settings and open Lenovo Settings at least once to start above countermeasure.

@Rydeen - Brialliant!  Opening up Lenovo Settings worked!  No more flicker with my OLED display on low brightness settings.  Very happy now!

 

THANK YOU!!!!
