Ideapad y500 suddenly died and won't turn back on.

I've been using this laptop for a few years now, and while it has its fair share of small problems (track pad not working, keyboard coming loose and sometimes not working, speakers slowly dying, start ups where the screen doesn't turn on.) Despite those issues I always found a way to either fix or at least work around the problems until today.

I was just watching YouTube videos when the laptop without any warning shut off instantly, even though it was plugged in, and mostly charged. After that none of the power lights would go on at all, not even the charging one. I tried unplugging it, removing the battery, holding down the power button for 30 second, and every combination of those steps I could think of. Is there any hope of saving this laptop, or is it bricked?

Hello Pykes

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.


Sounds like something has shorted out, perhaps even motherboard failrue.

 

See if you are abel to power it up with the Novo button at all?

 

Also, you could try an another charger for the unit, see if that is able to make any difference for you.

 

 

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.
