Blinking amber power light?

2017-11-28, 17:51 PM

I have an N22 chromebook that when plugged into a known good power adapter, the charging light blinks amber.  Nothing appears on the screen, so it appears to be dead.  Pressing power does nothing.  Can anyone recommend something for me to try to revive, or is this unit done for?

Hi yhttech,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Replacement board is usually advised by the hardware manual if a known good ac charger still fails.

On this state it would be best to call in technical support for in warranty repair.


A full power drain (removing the battery with no charger or other source of power ) then pressing the power button for 20 seconds to drain flea power may help. Since opening the machine can void warranty, it is advise to have tech support handle this for you instead.


Hope this helps.

You probably already figure this out.  The battery is unplugged

FYI it may not be hardware related, I flashed the system (esc+Recycle+Power) on one of our chromebooks and it corrected the very same issue.
