SCREEN TOO DARK ¶

FAILS TO CHARGE/TURN ON ¶
Your Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 does not charge or fails to power up.
The correct charging cable is not being used ¶
Check that you are only using a micro-USB charging cable connected to an AC power adapter for wall outlet charging. This will ensure the strongest charging connection. Using a different cable or plugging into a computer or power bank may prove sub-optimal for charging.
Internal battery may be dead ¶
If your Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 fails to charge at all and the charging indicator light (on the power button) does not come one, it is likely that your internal battery needs to be replaced. The part you need is a Lenovo L14D3K31 3.7V 9600mAh lithium-ion battery.

Headphones are not properly plugged in ¶
Your headphones are plugged in but sound is not coming through them or not coming out properly. If sounds are only partially coming through your headphones or not coming through at all your headphones may not be properly plugged in completely. Ensure that headphones are properly plugged in.
TABLET OVERHEATING ¶
Tablet overheats during general use, charging or while not in use.
Too many actions at once ¶
You may be overworking your tablet. If you are using your tablet in a cool, dry environment and you are not charging your tablet while in use then your tablet should not be overheating. If it is overheating in these situations you may be doing too many things at once. Try closing some Internet tabs and closing apps not in use.
Tablet in hot environment ¶
Your tablet may be in an environment that is too hot. Electronics are meant to be used in cool, dry environments. If you are not doing too many things on your tablet at once and you are not charging your tablet while in use than you might need to use your tablet in a cooler location.
Using charger while in use ¶
You are using the charger while the tablet is in use. It is not recommended that you use your tablet while you are charging it. Aside from making it take longer for your tablet to charge, and possibly degrading your battery, your tablet may overheat if you use it while it is charging. Try letting your tablet charge while not in use.
