Re: Yoga x1 3rd gen keyboard backlight flickering

I haven't seen that, but I will say that I opened a ticket there for a different reason, and never got any response from Lenovo other than to send me a box to send my laptop back to depot, for unspecified reasons, and even though my warrany is onsite.

Re: Yoga x1 3rd gen keyboard backlight flickering

Hey guys,

 

so I got an answer on my ticket. They exchanged my device but sadly new device same problem. It appeared after the Bios update so I guess thats the main Problem and therfore a software problem.

Why they exchanged the device then. It makes them look like they have no idea what is going on. 

:/ 

Their lack of response really bums me out. This is their top of the line poduct and I haven't expected this kind of support, or lack of it.

Re: Yoga x1 3rd gen keyboard backlight flickering

Hey guys,

i also experienced a keyboard backlight flickering sometimes. Mostly after waking up from energy saving. But sometimes even after a normal turn on.

Until now i had to restart the laptop every time to "solve" the problem.

 

I hope they deliver a fix soon...

I have the same problem of flickering keyboard backlight.

Also I  happen to have the problem, that it takes a while until the keyboard "wakes up" after Sleep.

I have the problem with keyboard as well, it takes 10-20 seconds for it to start responding to keypresses.

Keyboard backlight flickering is also occuring on linux (only after waking from sleep, but not hibernate), so it isn't isolated to windows.

Does anyone notice some kind of chirping noise coming from I believe SSD (when copying many small files)?

It is like some kind of electrical noise I would say. 

 

It sounds like this - https://youtu.be/KS-BHI667po?t=30s

 

Is this normal?


I have heard this, kind of sounds like CA hummingbirds.. This morning it was pretty drastic, I have not heard such a loud coil whine (if that's what it is) for several years. Probably better discussed in a different thread though. Edit: FWIW, turns out in my case the coil whine came from my Lenovo ThunderBolt dock.
