Lenovo Yoga 500-15IBD, web-camera issue

Question: Lenovo Yoga 500-15IBD, web-camera issue

I have a web-camera issue with my notebook. It doesn't work. It used to work once or twice. But then suddenly something went wrong. Neither works mic. When I opened my windows 10 "Camera" app it said "Can't find camera". I checked device manager for drivers issues and couldn't find anything about camera. So I added a knew device "Lenovo EasyCamera". My "Camera" app still doesn't work. So I tried to fix in with Lenovo Settings. But there is no any camera folder in it. Reinstalling still didn't fix it. Also I tried installing drivers with official Lenovo website. Still nothing.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I've instaled Windows 7 X64 and everything works fine except the camera. I tryed to install recomended drivers for this moment but it showed me the message "No appropriate driver has been instaled for your system". After that I tried Lenovo easy cam driver but nothing happend. Next step was going into the Bios and enable it the camera from there but I couldn't find the camera there in my configuration setings. I have readed this forum to find solution for my problem but nothing works for me.There is any other way to solve my problem?

Hi, I've tried looking for tech specs (I know the hardware specs) for the monitor so I can work out what pen/stylus would be best for the touch screen. However, I can not find this particular product (spec specific) on the website.  If anyone could help me out that would be great, Ideally I'd like something with pressure levels as I do digitally draw from time to time, and would be helpful whilst writing. But would settle for something that isn't due to owning a GFX tablet anyway. Also, I'm unsure if this ideapad is referred to as a 15, 500 or 8 due to not know where this terminology is based from (model name, model series ect) seems unclear, perhaps I'm just looking into it too much and it is just a 500. Thanks to anyone that spends time reading, and thanks in advance for advice. ~Kris

Answer:LENOVO Yoga 500-15IBD

Hi mariuszwol5, Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums. Based on what I've found out, seems like both models has same specs as you have mentioned. If I'm not mistaken, the difference here is that, the 80N60084PB has this FRU : 18201638, whereas, the 80N6006FPB does not. FRU : 18201638Description : LGD LP156WF4-SPL1 FHD AG S LED1 NB LCDCommodity Code :  LCD PANELS Also checking on the price of the part itself, based on ebay, it is around USD $99.00. Which as per google, 400 PLN = 98.21 USD.  Hope this helps!

Hi, I got a problem with my laptop. The fan is making loud noise everytime I open a new window, a new tab, any setting window and so. I believe it is supposed to make this kind of noise when I'm stressing it with more programs running, not by simply open the files explorer... Any idea on what to do? (model is Lenovo Yoga 500-15IBD)ThanksNstant

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 500-15IBD loud fan noise

Hi Nstant,  Most probably a program or App is running at the background cause fast spinning fan to cool down CPU temp.  To figure it out, right click in your taskbar and from the opened menu click on task manager.  -From top menu click on performance tab then click on resource monitor ==> from top menu click on CPU tab and look at to the Average CPU usage and see which App or Program is using a high percentage of your CPU capacity==> right click on it and end the process.  .Regards,  **If the issue has been resolved please, mark me as solution provided to help others find the solution easily and click the Kudos.**

Hi,
I recently upgraded my Lenovo Yoga 15-IBD to an SSD, with a complete reinstall of Windows. Everything was working great; boot times were quicker and the system was far more responsive. However, the computer randomly freezes now, without any warning. I have to do a hard reset. Reliability monitor gives no clues of what the problem might be. The SSD is brand new, and passed a 'long' test this morning.

I have no idea where to go next; I seems that there is one problem after another with this laptop!

Thanks for your help!

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 500-15IBD Freezes Randomly after SSD Upgrade

Hi soopg.

When it freezes is there anything being logged in the event viewer? (System / Application / Other)

Have you looked at your Storage drivers. Before attempting to update please ensure you have an Image you can fall back to if required. While investigating would also be a good idea to have data backed up. You said this was a clean install so you likely have that point covered.

If you don't have a tool you could check out Macrium Reflect. Free, reliable and tutorial with forum.

You may wish to check out the Driver Verify process.

This tutorial will guide you through the verification process, heed the warnings. Assuming it fails follow the posting instruction in the BSOD section of forum.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable in Windows 10

The tutorial states make a restore point. Seems to be a lot of people having issues using restore points hence have an Image.

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 500 15IBD mystery restarts (BSOD)

Is this while running idle or under load? What surface is it being used on? (getting at ventilation) Leaning towards heat, but could be power issues or something else. Scape that, just noticed the dropbox links (its been one of those days) if memory serves bad_pool_caller is a processor 'misfire' Check in device manger that the processor is running correctly (ie flags 'device is working properly' this is stated in the devices properties (right click DM entry) ) if need be,uninstall, and have windows install them (this can be done in the right click menu of the device in DM selecting 'update driver software') Normally if this doesn't fix the issue its very often software based, ie something installed is causing the issue, bad drivers probably the top contributors, but not exclusively. Posting the .dmp file (google is your friend) would almost certainly flag the culprit.

My Yoga 500 ideapad totally loses it when I plug it into power. The CPU slows down imidiately and runs at 100% usage every time I make an action (opens Chrome takes like 30 seconds). In Speccy, I can see, that the CPU runs at a speed of approx. 500 Mhz (Core speed). If I unplug the laptop, the speed goes up to like 1,9 Ghz when I opens chrome (chrome opens instantly) and CPU usage maxes out at 40% or so. I can now close Chrome, plug in the laptop once again, and if I open chrome now,it maxes out at 500 Mhz speed with 100% CPU usage. I have just completely reinstalled windows (10, 64 bit) hoping that this would solve the problem.

The camera has been working with Skype.  Now not working and camera icon on Skype screen has line across it showing camera not working/available.   In Device Manager I have checked that the device is available (Lenovo EasyCamera).  I have checked privacy settings and camera is on.  I have downloaded an updated driver. The 'general' tab states 'This device is working properly'. My operating system is Windows 10.  Thank you SEJoseph - I have checked in Lenovo Settings and the camera icon has a slash through it.  I assume that means it is disabled.  If so how can I enable it? Problem solved - in Lenovo Settings - camera - set privacy to 'off'.  Camera now works with Skype.

So i've had my Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro laptop for about 8 months now, and everything seemed to be working just fine, i skype my boyfriend long distance a lot and all of a sudden i noticed the camera would shut itself off and i'd have to click the video icon again for it to turn back on, but seconds later it would shut itself off again. I know it usually does that when the connectivity isn't that great. However when i tried to use the camera for photos with the preinstalled lenovo camera  program, it would glitch on and off and eventually just close the camera program. I don't know whats the matter with it, ive downloaded the camera drivers, checked the devices and everything is fine...  

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Camera Glitching on and Off

@alicenwonderlam,When the camera app closes, did it generate any error or it just closes without any warning?If problem persist, I suggest running OKR to do a recovery to stock image then see if its still there. If the problem is still there then I would suggest to contact support to get it looked at.

Hi all, I had my screen replaced under warranty a few months ago due to the retention problem, after I got it back I noticed the webcam wasn't working I didn't put much thought into it and thought i had to update drivers since it had been replaced. Now I have come to get to the bottom of the problem and realised its looking like a hardware problem as windows reports the camera is not connected in device manager and no tricks seem to get it working. Looking at other posts it seems that it may be an issue withe folding design of the yoga putting stress on the connecting cables. Either that or it was not re-connected properly during the warranty repair which seems to make more sense..... Unfortunately my warranty has now expired (a couple of months) so it leaves me in a terrible predicament, does anyone have any ideas or anyone from Lenovo able to help me?  Thanks Steve

Hello Dws520Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Was this the creators update?
If so, have a look on the following post, this should show if your device has been tested with the update yet:
https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht503655
 
From what I can see, your unit does not seems to have made the list, which leads me to believe that this will be the cause of the issue, I would recommend that you revert back to the previous version of Windows, and observe if the fault still occurs or not.
 
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.==================================================================================Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!

Hello, I've had this lenovo yoga 710 for only a few months now and on multiple occasions, I've gone to open my camera/skype call, and I get a black screen, that says, "We Can't Find Your Camera". Now, I've read about a million posts about solutions to similar problems, but can't seem to get anything to work.When I go into "Device Manager", there are no camera drivers under "Imaging Devices" or "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers". So I looked it up, and everything I read says to go to the lenovo website, find the right camera driver for my specific computer, and download it. Well, I've tried that with a bunch of different camera drivers including the "AzureWave, Bison, Chicony, Liteon" one that is supposedly the right one for this computer, and after hitting "install" and "finish", I get a pop-up "error" message that simply says, "No device found". I've uninstalled and reinstalled lenovo "easycam", but it says the same thing -- "Can't find device", etc.Any suggestions would be awesome, I've only had this laptop for a few months and this has happened at least 4 or 5 times now and it's really becoming quite the aggravation when trying to video chat with family from college.Thanks in advance!

I bought the yoga 500-15IBD(w/i5 5200U;GT 940m and 8G of RAM) in summer of 2015. At first the notebook is doing fine. But at mid-late 2016 the notebook start acting strange, the CPU start lock the frequency at 0.44 Ghz while charging. I find out that the BD prochot is the reason and I disable it with throttlestop. Then when I start gaming for few minutes the laptop just shut down, because of overheating. So I try playing game with BD prochot on and with battery. And the gameplay become very laggy. Not like low fps, but just very laggy. I monitored the CPU and the CPU just get throttled massively frequently and the frequency just go up and down. Which never happen before, the laptop used to be at least playable with consistent (low) fps.  What should I do. Is some component damaged? Should I clean the fan (I checked the fan and it seems fine to me)? Should I charge the thermal paste?  ps I try to stress test both CPU and GPU, it's fine when doing test alone. But when testing both CPU and GPU the temp of CPU just go sky high (~100 C) and the GPU seems to be cool in terms of temperature(75 C)and than the laptop shut down. Even when testing GPU only while CPU is idle both temp got ~75 C. When doing only CPU test CPU temp ~88 C max and GPU stay at ~55 C. It seems the GPU is transfering heats to the CPU.

I bought a new Yoga 500 15IBD 2 Months ago and since a view weeks the Laptop had several power breakdowns while in battery mode. All of a sudden the Laptop turns black, all lights and the hdd turns off and I have to connect the power cord to get it started again - although the Battery certainly isn't empty according to the OS-Battery indicators AND often having the Laptop fully charged less than half an hour ago. (The Yoga runs for at least 3 hours if the bug does not appear). Now this is no driver issue, I have the problem while running Windows 10, Linux Mint and Backbox Linux. I suppose it's either a battery issue or a faulty architectual design. Since  I see a lot of similar power-off related messages accross the spectrum of lenovo devices, could someone finally publically explain the source of the problem so there is a chance to get rid of it ... especially in future products?

Answer:Yoga 500 - 15IBD - Bios update went wrong

What you can see there is a Boot menu. Your laptop can't boot from disk and display boot selection menu. Try to enter BIOS (can't say how to do it, as you didn't told which Yoga model do you have) and try to change boot settings from UEFI -> Legacy (or in other way) and/or disable Secure Boot. Check if after these changes your laptop will be able to boot.

Hi everybody, when I unplug the charger on my yoga 500 the screen starts to flicker like a rave party, I have searched like crazy all over and have found no solution to the problem. Things already tested:-Unplugging and plugging battery cable.-Disabling Windows error reporting service and Problem reports and solutions-Trying to update intel drivers from driver section and intel site.-Trying to update, and disable realtek hd audio driver. Things to take in account:-When connected to a second monitor, the new one won't flicker.-Laptop has warranty voided because of ssd install. (problem still occurs on bios with and withouth an HDD/SSD) so it shouldn't be considered a Windows 10 problem.-After SSD install, windows update doesn't allow me to update anything. I believe it thinks I'm booting from external hard drive. I cloned the original HDD into the SDD so that shouldn't be happening-Flickers increase with mouse, cursor and touch. Anybody has a fix for this? I read that a lot of people have this problem but I rarely see fixes.proof video https://www.dropbox.com/s/gttvhylvggtug7x/2017-05-26%2013.00.00.mov?dl=0

I haven't done any researches around the forums but I'll get straight to posting. I noticed that the camera is super black when I'm using it especially when using the Lenovo Motion Control feature. And the only way to make it brighter is to change the capture resolution on the Camera Man app. I tried reinstalling drivers and even fully recycling the PC. I guess that's not clear enough to make my question clear. The first time I use the Camera app was good enough. But the time I started using Lenovo Motion Control, it's unresponsive. I took a look at the camera app and found out that the camera wasn't really capturing anything. Well, it was but it's pitch black and it only captures very bright ilght sources. It's too annoying that I have to go to Camera Man app and change the capture resolution to make it lighter again for reuse. But it will revert back to pitch black again after quite some time not using it (or even in the next use seconds later). I also tried reinstalling the drivers with no luck. I reset my PC with no changes at all. Now I'm trying to fully recycle the PC to make sure that it's not a hardware issue. The last resort is bringing the unit back to the store and demand the same model even if they have to pull it out from different branches. I also noticed that there is some sort of unusual color shift on the lower left part of the screen where an rgb(0,0,0) still display a different color other than black.

Can someone help me, this is regarding my new Lenovo laptop and i'm done installing all drivers except for the camera. Error when i install the driver is here "No appropriate driver to be installed". Happy if smeone can help. Thanks.

Answer:Lenovo G40 camera driver issue

hi tiger2015,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Just to verify, is that a G40-80, G40-45, G40-70, or G40-30?
 
In addition, when you run the webcam installer, it runs a check to see if the hardware ID matches the information on the installer. If it didn't find any match, you'll get a  "No appropriate driver to be installed" error.
 
Things that you can try:
1. Follow this guide on how to identify the model of the webcam via its hardware ID.
 
2. Once you know the webcam model, (e.g., Bison), download the specific webcam driver from the lenovo drivers page and run it. If you get the  "No appropriate driver to be installed" error, close it out then navigate to the path where the driver files are extracted (e.g., c:\drivers\Camera Driver (Bison, Liteon)).
 
From here, navigate to the model of the webcam (e.g., Bison) and manually run the setup.exe file on that folder and observe.
 
  - Sample image
 
 
Let me know if these steps works for you.
 
Regards

Hi Lenovo I really like you guys but my camera which is supposed to be 720p HD and what not is not really working as such. I face really poor quality camera. In the brightest of rooms you cannot see the fairest girl. Please I need this fixed.  I have a Lenovo g510. Please fix my camera. 

Answer:Lenovo G510 camera issue

hi Lalouve,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
I looked into the G510 specs and this unit can use up to an HD 720p camera (1M pixel).
 - Link to picture
 
I don't have this unit here for testing but for a 1MP 720p camera, the quality should be okay (like in this video). 
 
Also, you didn't mention the OS that you're running but if you're running on Win8.1 or Win10, ensure these drivers are installed:
 
Camera Driver (AVC, Bison, Chicony, Lite-on) for Windows 8.1 (32-bit, 64-bit) ? Lenovo G410, G510
Camera Driver (AVC, Bison, Chicony, Liteon) for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Lenovo G410, G510
 
If you're still getting a dark / blurry image and you've already removed the camera cover then there's likely a problem with the camera and I recommend you contact the lenovo helpdesk and report the issue.
 
Support phone list
 
Alternatively, if it's not a good time to send the unit for service, you may want to consider getting an alternative camera like this item (good reviews too).
 
 
Regards

So I just bought a new Yoga 13 ultrabook and the thing is amazingly versatile.  I also decided to pick up the Lenovo sleeve in order to add a layer of protection. It appears as if the tablet has been accumulating an "uncleanable" spot on the cover where the four rubber feet would normally come into contact with it when folded into a tablet mode.  These four spots on the cover are not coming off with light cleaners and I even tried some Simple Green...no luck.  They are exactly located in the spots where the feet touch the cover and leave a noticeable mark.  I don't know if this issue is due to the sleeve since I have only ever used the ultrabook with the sleeve. I called tech support and they haven't a clue and so I am wondering if anyone else is experiencing this issue?  Perhaps I should return the sleeve and exchange the ultrabook for another to start fresh. Thanks for any help or insight.

I bought the Lenovo Yoga 900 a week ago. So far I'm quite happy with the Laptop , but there's one problem I have. The Fan starts spinning wildly every so often . And this drains my battery real quick. I get only about 4-5 hours . It happens while surfing using fiefox / chrome / edge. Task Manager shows that the CPU/ MEMORY Usage of the browsers is extremely high , in turn driving my cpu to a utilization of above 60% with no other apps running .This is a serious bummer , and I have no clue as to what can be done . As if this isn't enough , Windows Compatibility Telemetry is another service that occasionally causes a spike in the CPU usage. That I understand is a Windows issue. But the fan is quite disturbing.

Answer:New RAM issue Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13

Hi, DM  ?
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
First of all, I recommend you update your motherboard BIOS if an update exists. Sometimes new memory profiles will be included. It's probably a timing issue, not a frequency issue.
 
To test properly you would have to: 1) Run with slow memory for five minutes in idle. Record highest CPU core temp. 2) Repeat with faster memory. 3) Repeat with slower memory again (because things are heating up).
 
Update us how it goes.

I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 laptop just over a year old. My Autistic little man was happily playing Roblox when it crashed. He turned it off and on again and the laptop says repairing disk errors and just stays like that day and night. So I have bought Windows 10 on USB as it doesn't have a disk drive but and I stupidly thought it would be as simple as plugging it in the USB drive and hey presto it would be fixed. But it's not.

Could anyone explain the steps I need to take to fix it as I promised my son I'd get it done by now and when you set an Autistic child's expectations and you don't meet them, woe betide you!

Please help.

Thank you x

Answer:Windows 10 on USB and a Lenovo Yoga 2 issue

You didn't have to buy anything. The Windows 10 licensing information is stored in the system firmware. You could have made a Windows 10 installer with the Media Creation Kit from Microsoft.

You could have also used the "Reset this PC" option in the recovery options and it would have installed a fresh copy of Windows off the Recovery partition.

Hi Guys.Need help.I have Lenovo Yoga 2 11 ( 2years old). There was no issue till 2 days back. Have given the issue details below.Details :1. Laptop went into issue - " Windows is not responding" and then got shut down.2. Tried to restart. After booting, the screen did show that "Windows is attempting repair". It was in the same state for more than 24 hours.3. I did a hard shut down and tried to restart. But then it displayed "No Bootable device, hit any key".4. I downloaded Windows Recovery media (Windows 10 X64) to USB and booted from there to fix windows start up issue repair.5. After repair, tried to reboot. Faces the issue (point 3) again and again.6. Looked into the BIOS set up and found that nothing is there under 'EFI section'. The Boot mode is 'UEFI' and not allowing me to edit, so can't change it to Legacy.7. Browsed through Lenovo support forum and other web help for a day, tried everything, but not able to change boot set up or boot from harddrive.8. I thought Hard drive may have been disconnected, but on BIOS Information section, I can see Hard disk information. So it seems hard disk is good. Can anybody help me with valuable input please ? I have attached all the screenshots in this thread.Is Hard disk damaged ?What can be the cause behind it not booting from HD and not allowing me to change the Boot mode to Legacy ? No boot device found.BIOS Info with HD detailsBIOS Config sectiionBIOS Security sectionBIOS Boot sectionNo bootable device/option

I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 laptop just over a year old. My Autistic little man was happily playing Roblox when it crashed. He turned it off and on again and the laptop says repairing disk errors and just stays like that day and night. So I have bought Windows 10 on USB as it doesn't have a disk drive but and I stupidly thought it would be as simple as plugging it in the USB drive and hey presto it would be fixed. But it's not.

Could anyone explain the steps I need to take to fix it as I promised my son I'd get it done by now and when you set an Autistic child's expectations and you don't meet them, woe betide you!

Please help.

Thank you x

Hello!I recently got a Lenovo Yoga 13". Had to change upgrade the ssd to 256 GB.So after installing and activating windows 8.1 everything works fine, but the touchscreen no. I've installed all the newest drivers. And no luck. Does anyone has any idea how to fix it? Thanks.

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 13'' touchscreen issue

I am having the same issue, I called in to Lenovo support, and they had me send it in. They replaced the LCD and they said the drivers werer corrupted on it, so they had to put a new image of Win 8 on it. When i got it back the touchscreen worked for about 10 min then stopped and I cannot get it to come back up. I have tried disable/enabling the driver in device manager, but nothing is working. I did all the updates for Win8 and put 8.1 on there, still no luck

Hello - Have a Yoga 3 Pro that has suddenly decided not to charge. Has been working fine until recently... life of charged battery has been normal and the charging time has been normal as well. I swapped out chargers, and the new one did not work, so I'm assuming it is an issue with the connector on the laptop body. When I push the power button, the orange light blinks three times and nothing else happens. Is there any way to get this to charge, even if temporarily? Thanks in advance.

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro - Charging issue

Did the battery run down?  Did you get a low battery warning?  You are saying the battery isn't charged; Are you sure it isn't something else?  Does the little power LED light when plugged in?  (next to the power switch)

So I have a new Lenovo Yoga 710 14". When I use the webcam on messenger to chat with my wife, I can see myself, I can hear her, but I cannot see her. It's just a black screen. My wife can see me perfectly through her phone so I know it's something on my end. Any idea what it could be? I mean, I can hear her but can't see her

Hi, My name is jenny , i am having a major issue with my Lenovo Ideapad yoga 13 and was wondering if anyone could help me diagnose the problem. First the problem started when the laptop refused to turn on.So the lenovo laptop will not power up whatsoever even with a charger plugged in or with the battery removed and the charger plugged in. I replaced the battery and it turned on immidently but the battery slowly died and refused to charge. Now i am back to square one. I replaced the internal power jack where you plug the charger in and it still will not turn on and there is no lights indicating any power at all. Is is possible that a internal power cord can cause a battery to stop charging. Does anyone knwo what this could be? I know the computer motherboard is ok because when i replaced the battery the computer came on right away and the computer was fine but the battery refuses to charge. 

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 Issue

Hello Jenny, welcome to the forum.
 
Just a thought, but are you able to try another charger and/or charging cable? The fault may lie with one of these, rather than with the Yoga 13 itself?

Hello everyone ! I bought a Yoga 500 15 IBD a few days ago. Everything runs perfectly except the speakers. When I watch videos or listen to music, there are static noises everytime (like cracks). Has anyone encountered the same issue ? Is there a solution ? Thanks a lot F.

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 500 speakers issue

Hi FDE,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
We are really sorry to hear about the issue you are facing.
 
Is the sound ok when you plug-in an earphone or headset?
 
Can you try to enable loudness equalization and room correction under the Speaker Properties of the Sound Settings?
 
If it is, can you try to uninstall the Realtek HD Audio driver from the Control panel, reboot the PC, and then try to play the sounds using the generic sound drive. If it works ok, reinstall the sound driver below:
 
Windows 10 latest audio drivers
Windows 8.1 latest audio drivers
 
Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on.
 
Regards,
Shashi Kumar

So here is a new thing that happens with this Yoga 700.It was on my desk in lap top mode and i was away. i came back and had to log in to windows.When i logged in, the screen was sideways.  Another time it was flipped upside down.  This is not due to moving it. it was just on my desk with no change to it.  So add this to the list of weird things this pc does.  This would go under annoying.  the slow wifi connections would be more annoying though.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Technically the breaking of the seal does void the warranty, but the final determination is with the service center.   If you are looking to get the charger port repaired than I would suggest you check with your local Best Buy to see if there are an authorized Lenovo Service Center.  If they are then bring the laptop in an explain how the seal got broken to one of their service techs.
