Question about Lenovo IdeaPad K3 Lynx Convertible Multitouch Tablet 59343251 - 11.6

1 Answer

Backlight lenovo ideapad k3 lynx seems burnt out, but will sometimes dim when cooled down

The touch screen works, and I am using an HDMI to view it now. But, only after a week of cooling down does the screen show a faint image. The backlight seems burnt out. It is past the warranty by a week, so is it worth sending in?

    Jacob, I doubt you can fix it by resetting it as was suggested. But, with computers you can never tell. Try it, if it doesn't work, then contact lenovo and ask what a repair to the monitor would cost. Sometimes they give a flat rate. Sorry for your problem and sorry I couldn't be more help. joe

Screen is not working?

If the screen is black, then with computer on, shine a strong flashlight on the screen at about a 20 degree angle (90 degrees would be pointing the light right at the screen). Move it around to see if any of the expected graphics (e. g., login request) are visible. If so, your backlight is not working, but everything else is fine. A backlight failure is usually due to a dead fluorescent tube, but sometimes is the result of a bad inverter. If you have an LED backlight, check the LED driver circuit first.

Will not connect to wifi

  • Touch the Apps Menu button on the Home screen.
  • Open the Settings app.
  • Choose Wireless & Networks.
  • Choose Wi-Fi Settings.
  • Ensure that Wi-Fi is on.
    When you see a green check mark next to the Wi-Fi option, Wi-Fi is on.
  • Choose a wireless network from the list.
    Available Wi-Fi networks appear at the bottom of the screen. When no wireless networks are listed, you're sort of out of luck regarding wireless access from your current location.
    Optionally, type the network password.
    Touch the Password text box to see the onscreen keyboard.
    Touch the Show Password check box so that you can see what you're typing; some of those network passwords can be long.
    Touch the Connect button.
    You should be immediately connected to the network. If not, try the password again.

    Have you tried plugging it into the charger? If it's plugged in, the screen should dim but not turn completely off for at least 10 seconds. If it doesn't work, try covering the light sensor on the front of the tablet, so that the screen will brighten until you can change the backlight setting in Menu -> Settings -> Display.
