Device Won't Turn On ¶ 

Yoga 14 is unable to turn on

Charge it ¶ 

Your laptop may quite simply be out of battery. Plug in the charger and connect it to your laptop. Wait 20 minutes and then try turning it on again.

It Should be Charged and it Still Won't Turn On ¶ 

As a last resort, you can use the Secret Power Button Code. This may sound crazy, but it's worked for some people!

  1. Disconnect your laptop from its charger and make sure it is powered off.
  2. Take out the battery.
  3. Push the power button 10 times at 1-second intervals.
  4. Push and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
  5. Put the battery back in by doing the opposite of #2.
  6. Push the power button to turn it on again.

Touchscreen Randomly Doesn't Work ¶

The Touchscreen isn't Calibrated ¶ 

To calibrate the Touchscreen, follow these steps:

  1. On the Start screen, type touch. Then select Calibrate the Screen for Pen or Touch Input.
  2. In the Tablet PC Settings window, select the Calibrate button.
  3. Starting at the upper-left corner, use your finger or a stylus to tap each intersection, which displays two short black lines forming crosshairs.

  3. Use a can of compressed air to remove debris.

Software issue ¶

One Comment

Lenove 14 won’t boot up. F1 error. Select F1 and get request to reset time and date. Go to BIOS menu and select Change Time/Date but can’t get to time or date fields. Click and select but nothing. Opened machine. Disconnected small battery and same result. Everything else is connected OK. Seems hopeless.
