Re: X220 - no post and green light around power button flashes every 3 - 4 second

Mark,

 

How do I reach you?

 

I have an X220 that has been waiting for a system board since Jan 23 here in Canada. It has been in the shop for longer than I had it.

 

I have an open repair ticket. I just spoke with the local tech and he said he had absolutely no idea when the board would come in.

 

Please escalate this !!!

 

Walter

Re: X220 - no post and green light around power button flashes every 3 - 4 second

Hi: Add me to the list of people suffering from this. My two months x220 was serviced and changed the motherboard TWICE during repairment,ie without returning it to me (Some one messed up things??!!). After two weeks or so, today, it is bricked again, unable to wake up after suspend. Power button and fingerprint reader leds blink alternately (a couple of times power, once fingerprintreader) and then absolutely nothing else. Lenovo Spain is being reluctant to change again the MB and coerces me to test the laptop with a second AC adapter, I'm trying to borrow one from somebody at work. Regards

Re: X220 - no post and green light around power button flashes every 3 - 4 second

I have the same issue. Opened a support ticket and the part, motherboard in this case, is in back order (7 days estimate). I have had the laptop for two weeks.

 

I find this whole situation embarassing. These laptops are supposed to be the 'ultimate business tool' and it's quite obvious they haven't been thoroughly tested.

People are still willing to pay a premium to go with Lenovo due to the reputation IBM gave the brand years ago. Unless businesses receive premium support and priority on these parts, I don't see how they could justify doing business wtih Lenovo. Perhaps it's just us, the individuals, who get the shaft in these situations.

 

Complaining here is quite futile as moderators on these forums are very much like middle managers - they are sh**-umbrellas who cover for the failures rooted in upper management.

 

Folks, if they really cared about this they would have sent you a new laptop and swap/re-image the hard drives to prevent data loss. The sad reality is they don't - they got your money and while they are figuring out ways to keep it in their pockets, you'll be sitting there in front of a defective laptop with a thumb up your *** for several weeks.

 

Happy valentines day.

Well, after asking again today, I still don't have any ETA when Lenovo will send the replacement mainboard to the repair shop.

According to the guys there, Lenovo still hasn't shipped the replacement... it's already four weeks since it's ordered. I understand that the market in the Czech Republic is smaller then US but you cannot ship one item for four weeks?!?!?

If I don't get my laptop in working condition on Monday next week (30 days in repairs), I am going to ask for cash refund and spend my money on something else.

Please DO NOT post serial numbers in open forum. Posting serial numbers could lead to abuse of those numbers by dishonest people.

Re: X220 - no post and green light around power button flashes every 3 - 4 second

Update:

 

I got mine back today -- within 10 days, I expected them to be quicker, but I guess that's acceptable.They replaced the system board. In Japan, IBM is still doing the service for Lenovo.

 

My model number starts with R9, as a few others' here.

 

Good luck everybody
