Welcome to the Community

 

Do you mean the e-ink panel? I can still draw on my YB C930 and the touchpad function is still there. The only thing I can't do is change keyboard styles. One of the updates wrecked that. This thread shows how to fix it. Might work for you. I didn't fix mine because I have no desire to change keyboard styles.

 

If you're talking about the color screen, you might need to give some more details or some pictures showing the issue.

They added this feature back in with the latest November firmware update. It now appears as one of the e-screen choices. With this update you can now have a wacom tablet screen, note taking screen, a PDF reader screen and an e-screen mirror of the regular screen. Other postings in the community have covered this update and how to install them.

I was just installing that firmware garbage that should've been included in the initial release and right now have the same problem you had, the keyboard is dead. I didnt know they were incompetent enough to require a 10 hour long installation and didnt have the charger with me. Now the glass display is unresponsive.

No offense, but it really isn't that difficult.

Ok I have updated the system, the new firmware has been installed and the eink is still the same, there's no new functionality, no drawing pad option. It's functioning now as it originally did.

 

Edit: Googled and downloaded https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/tablets/yoga-series/yoga-book-c930/downloads/ds505122 because it wasn't included in the update and now it functions.
