Re: Fingerprint reader stopped working (ThinkPad L380)

The circuitry might have failed.  I would first try to reset everything:


1) Turn off fingerprint option in windows hello

2) Boot into BIOS and erase fingerprints (under security menu)

3) Uninstall the fingerprint reader under the device manager

4)  Reboot and let it find new hardware 


You would then need to re-register the fingerprints


If that doesn't work, I would assume a hardware problem
