Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Flex :: Combo Audio Jack That Only Works As Line-out
Jun 1, 2014
So the Yoga 2 Pro's single 1'8" audio interface is billed as a "combo" jack that functions both as a line-out (for headphones, speakers) and a line-in (for plugging in other audio devices to play through the computer's internal speakers). Well, this doesn't seem to be the case - I've tried ini vain to do this with a Line 6 guitar interface with no luck whatsoever. The Realtek Audio HD software shows the jack as performing two functions, but you cannot change what it's being used for - a difference from earlier versions of the Realtek software (apparently this was most easy to change in the Windows XP version).
How I can properly configure the combo jack to work as a line-in port, as was advertised when I bought the computer?
I have a brand new Yoga 2 Pro that has an audio jack problem. The internal speakers play audio just fine. When I plug in a pair of headphones into the jack on the right side of the unit, no audio comes out of the headphones. The internal speaker continues to produce audio as if there is nothing plugged in.
I've tried using various types of headphones. No change. I tried re-downloading the audio realtek drivers from the lenovo website and re-installing them. No change. I tried rolling back the audio driver to the Windows version. No change.
Is there anything else I can try? Non-working audio jack makes this a dealbreaker and I'll need to return the unit.
Update: According to Lenovo phone support, all my headphones are 3.5mm and they need to be 2.5mm. Frankly, I think they have it backwards and what I have are 2.5mm plugs, but either way I'm headed to radio shack to find an adapter to make this work.
For the Yoga 2 Pro owners out there, how much static do you have in your headphone jack? I am loving everything about this laptop except for some noticeable static at low volumes and some backlight bleeding at the bottom of the screen. I have tried two different headsets, my Senheiser HD 280 Pros and my Etymotic earbuds.
I am curious how everyone elses behaves. If this is normal I can probably live with it. If I am the only one, I may get it replaced. Build date 11/06/2013, purchased from Lenovo's website.
I have an A/V receiver which supports HD sound up to DTS-HD MA and with my old laptop I was able to bitstream DTS audio from movies with an optical toslink cable. When I saw the Yoga 2 Pro laptop had a microHDMI port, I assumed that I would be able to get DTS audio and maybe DTS-HD and DD TrueHD audio from HD movies by bitstreaming it to my receiver. I've only tried it with VLC and where I was able to get the spdif pass through working for DTS audio before, this has not proved straightforward with this laptop. Trying passing the audio to their receiver to get HD audio? Is this generally not possible with laptops?
I upgraded to WIndows 8.1 a few hours ago (available in Store). However, ever since the upgrade I can no longer watch videos or hear sound in all Apps.
Netflix gives me a message that there is a problem with this system's configuration that prevents Windows from playing protected video and error code W8156-8007007E.
Xbox Music player gives me "Can't play. Make sure your computer's sound and video cards are working and have the latest drivers" error code 0x00d11d1 (0x8007007e).
All the other Apps that have video, and or audio, give various errors messages (e.g., "The video failed to play".
Now I can watch imbedded You Tube videos in Internet Exployer.
I did find KB2756872 that seems to address the problem with protected videos not playing. However, it doesn't mention if it is compatible with Windows 8.1 and when I follow the manual update method where you make changes in Regedit. I did not see the key that needs to be deleted.
Have a weird problem and just wanted some advice on what to do next, before sending in my laptop to dell..
My laptop speakers wont output any sound whatsoever. While i can hear those very same sounds via headphone jack/hdmi.. No music, windows system sounds etc via the speakers, but can hear them via headphone/hdmi..
I have installed and updated the latest drivers.. Reformatted and reinstalled operating system (windows 7 home 64 bit), yet no results..
While I am convinced that it could be a hardware problem, I was wondering if you guys could suggest any more tests/things to do..
Well, didn't check before installing Macrium Reflect Professional but it detected 7 (seven) partitions in my Yoga2 13 (Not Pro) as follows:
1 - WinRE_DRV 1GB total 313MB used - NTFS Primary 2 - System_DRV 260MB total 28.5MB used - FAT32(LBA) Primary 3 - LRS_ESP 1GB total 497MB used - FAT32 (LBA) Primary 4 - NONE Unformated Primary (?) 5 - Windows OS 422GB total 44.58GB used (C NTFS Primary 6 - Lenovo 25GB total 2.46GB used (D NTFS Primary 7 - PBR_DRV 15.75GB total 12.46GB used NTFS Primary
All Yoga2 13 are like that from the factory or Macrium created some of them? If they are like that from the factory what each of the partitions have inside (other than, obvlously, the #5 Windows.)
In creating an image for restore in case one is needed which ones I should include in the image?
Is there any way to boost volume on Yoga 13?? I have my system volume and video player volume maxed out and it's STILL not loud enough. No it doesn't have anything to do with what I'm watching, and no, nothing to do with the player. Windows Media, VLC, and Divx have been tried.
I purchased a new Flex 2-15 online the past week. The model name shown on the back is "20405". Manufacture date is May 12, 2014. The User Guide refers to a "Novo Button", which is shown in diagrams as being on both the left edge and the right edge near the front. Neither location has a button of any sort. The right edge has a pinhole in the supposed button location. A curved arrow icon is next to the pinhole. I have an inkling this may be some sort of factory reset button. Lacking the Novo button, what is the procedure for accessing the features which the manual says are accessed by pressing this non-existent button?. That is, BIOS, and/or the one touch image backup/restore system?
I´ve got a problem when I connect the yoga 2 pro with my TV (8 year old sony, full hd) with HDMI. The picture doesn´t fit into the screen, it is too big. I tried changing the resolution of both yoga and tv and at the Intel graphics driver I can´t change the scaling option. H
I paid $60 just for some recovery discs to recover my accidentally formatted Yoga 2 Pro. The discs came with no instructions whatsoever, and using them is weird. First of all, there is two disc 1's, no disc 2, yet there is a disc 3 and 4. Support confirmed this is normal. There is also no prompt between discs 1,1, and 2, so despite making my best guess at when to switch, I can't confidently say I'm not screwing things up.
After the whole process completes, the bios can't find bootable media.
I had bought yoga 2 pro from Malaysia three weeks back. And I had traveled back to India last week.The PC was working fine till yesterday. Yesterday while I was working suddenly the system hangs and I had to hard reset. But after that the system didn't boot up. It shows boot device not found. I have switched it off and tried booting using restore button and opened the bios it shows that HDD not detected.
Similar kind of issue I faced two times before but if I hard boot again it worked fine.
I just got the Yoga 2 Pro and it seems like a great laptop / tablet. I have one big problem: the touchpad is near-unusable for me. It seems like I'm constantly activating the switch app gesture and just cannot use it.
How do I turn off all of the gestures on the touchpad so that it just functions like a normal mouse????
I've got a Yoga 11s which is barely a few months old and hasn't seen much use. Having the same problem - it won't power on or charge (powers on only when plugged in). In Lenovo Energy Manager battery status shows "Good" and charging status shows "Battery Connected". WIndows power management icon however, shows Plugged-in, not charging. Never had that problem before either, but it came with the power-on failure so I guess they're related.
I cannot get the Y2P to shutdown or sleep. When I try to shut down it powers off but after about 2 seconds it turns itself back on and boots up. Same thing happens when I try to sleep.I've tried pretty much everything I could find online including the following:
-Turn off wake on lan on the network adapter -Turn off auto restart on windows errors -Updated bios -Updated drivers -Disabled all non microsoft services -Factory reset of the OS
Went through every device in device manager and turned off "Allow this device to wake the computer"powercfg /lastwake (shows nothing).Shutting down isn't a huge deal as holding down the power button will eventually turn it off. But not being able to sleep the laptop when I close the lid is a deal breaker as the battery constantly drains.
I just got the Yoga 2 Pro, I also have an older Thinkpad 65W 20V AC adapter with a ThinkPad Slim Power Conversion Cable, so it will fit, but is it ok to use? All the specs match except my new Yoga 2 adapter doesn't have the wattage listed on it.
I just bought a Lenovo Yoga 2 pro and installed windows 8.1 by itsef. During Windows 8.1 initial setup I was able to use keyboard to type in PC Name, but after that the keyboard and touch pad was not working/no any response any more. After Windows 8.1 lunched the keyboard also no any response. I have to use touch screen soft keyboard. But when laptop in BIOS mode (turn power off and press a small round button next to power button) the keyboard was working fine. So I think that the keyboard hardware is ok, but some thing iwas wrong with Windows 8.1 software issue. I also un-selected all on Easy of Access->Keyboard section in Windows 8.1.
I have a Yoga 2 pro and the powered usb port was supposed to work as a charger even with the laptop turned off, but it is working just with the computer on, I already tryed to change the in the energy options the selective suspension of the usb and also in the device manager, I deselect the "computer can turn off the device to save energy" but nothing worked...
I have the issue that my newly bought Yoga 11 (three weeks ago) is charging whenever it seems to feel like. The first time I have charged it, it went up to 92 % telling me its now in power state and not charging. This happened triple. Yesterday my Yoga was beneath the 50 % mark and I plugged in the powercable, the same again: not charging. I unplugged the power cable and at 0 % and a shutdown I booted it and it charged perfectely up to 99 % without moaning. I unplugged the cable and at 77 % the same again, I plugged in the power cable and it charged up to 99 % again.
Is this a bug (battery problem) or a feature (thresholds for a long living battery)?
I recently updated my Yoga 13 to Windows 8.1 and am now experiencing significant lag when resuming from suspend and periodically while I work. Often I will type and not see the text on the screen for another 5+ seconds.
I have run Malwarebytes and Windows Defender and found no malware. By keeping an eye on the task manager I have not been able to identify a misbehaving process.
I own a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro (Model 20266) with a stock 256GB Samsung SSD MZMTD256HAGM-000L1. It works well in general, but occasionally it'll freeze for several tens of seconds, particularly when I'm idling or working on something that doesn't use the hard drive. I thought it was an issue with the SSD going to sleep, but disabling hard drive sleep via the Windows Power Options doesn't work. I've tried installing Samsung Magician, but it doesn't support the drive even though it detects its a Samsung SSD.
Is there some setting I need to disable? Failing that, is there some way I can upgrade the firmware? This model doesn't appear on Samsung's website either.
I just got it about 2 weeks ago and it's all booger up. I think I accidentally installed some malware and it now there's stuff I just can't get off it. I've been running windows 7 for years and never had malware issues like I'm running into on 8....
Since there's no DVD drive and it didn't come with a system restore thumb drive like my mac air did, how do you do a full factory reset?
