Re: Miix 700 - issues after updating folio keyboard firmware

Flautist that is a very unpleasant development, could you please tell me which version of the OS caused the 720 keypad to stop working?

Re: Miix 700 - issues after updating folio keyboard firmware

I just did the normal windows 10 update.

 

Windows still saying "PC has precision touch pad", no error message was given but only the touchpad is not working.

 

Wondering if the cover is dead...

 

Currently need to switch back to the original cover which is a shame.

 

Hey Lenovo, isn't a proper dirver so difficult for you?

If you go to Settings > System (first choice) > About (last choice) you can see the current OS build you are on. I am on 15063.540 which is the latest available for me, and the 720 keyboard still works perfectly.

I am asking since you said it happened after an OS update, but it may be unrelated to that.

"As others already mentioned, closing the lid doesn't activate the switch anymore, the one that would put the computer to sleep (i had that set to shut down btw).:"

This is not quite my case. The auto brightness should be set as on in order for the switch to work (same sensor).

Mm this is weird, I found where the magnet on the 700's keyboard is (just below the right end of the keyrow, close to the right arrow key), and I could also simulate the action by holding a small magnet on the portion of the screen where the sensor is - the device shut down.

On my machine the light sensor is definitely not involved in the lid open/close detection.

Hi Flautist - just wondering if you may have accidentally invoked the touchpad disable/enable feature - (like the one on the F6 key on the MiiX 700)?

Cheers

I don't think there is any solution for the original type cover. I am satisfied with the change to the 720's type cover, it made the device usable for me.

Can you please confirm if it works with the latest windows updates? I'm thinking of getting the 720 typecover too. 

 

Thanks,
