Hi basebald,

Based on your situation, I suggest trying the following steps:

1. Just press the FN+ESC to turn off/on the camera.
2. If you cant turn it off using the step 1 download the lenovo power management here.
3. Makesure you select the Windows version of the application that matches your Windows operating system.

4. After downloading install the application then restart your computer.

5. Try to press FN+ESC again.

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using FixYa

Hi I am Vortash ..... you can turn off the camera from your device Manager by disabling it , however your camera wont activate until you give it the command to do so . If you don't wish to be seen on cam merely remove the fact that others can See you have a cam and disable it in MSN or whatever other live facility you use it's all quite easy to do and help and instructions of how to do it are available by pushing F1 .... Regards Vortash

Looks like the board hang up on you. Take out the battery and unplug the power adapter from the computer. Press and hold the power button for 10 secs then put everything back in. Turn on the computer. Computer should boot up now.

My Y530 wont come on.....I checked the power supply and power is coming to the battery via the ac plug but when I hit the power button the screen stays dark. How do I fix this?


Hi. Are the light indicators on the computer turns on when you press the power button. If none, then this could be a case socket issue. Case socket where you insert the power adapter to your computer is somewhat loosed. Socket has no physicla contact to the motherboard that is why computer is not getting the power. You may call Lenovo Tech support if you want this issue repaired. Phone number is 1-877-453-6686 then press option #3

Lenovo? Oh, it must be having face recognition, right? Maybe your inbuilt webcam is continuously being used by the biometric software.

Have you installed the Lenovo EnergyCut drivers? Without it, laptop may not work properly and turns extra hot. Try letting it cool down before you try again.
