I bought a second hand Lenovo Y50-70 UHD around a year ago, which the previous owner had for a couple of years, however It stopped charging around the start of January this year. After looking into it, the charge port inside the laptop needed to be replaced as it had overheated and burnt out. Up until this point I had never had any issues with it, and the previous owner had never mentioned any issues. But I ordered the part online and easily replaced it, and everything seemed to be working fine again.
However last Friday (16th) the same thing happened again - wasn't charging at all! I ordered the part again sraight away and it was delivered over the weekend. I fitted it again as I had before, however this time it didn't fix anyhting. My best guess is that the motherboard socket might have also burnt out (Picture 2.), causing any replaceble sockets to quickly burn out too. But I want to try as many options as I can before having it serviced. This is slightly worrying as the other one had only been replaced a couple of months ago - so I really need to get down to the bottom of this.
I've been trying to think of what else could be causing this:
-I have messaged the seller as it could just be the result of receiving a faulty part. I am yet to recieve a response.
-I have removed the battery to see if it would work with just the charger (although I do not think the battery is the problem anyway, but I haven't completely ruled it out yet).
-I have checked everything inside to make sure everything was plugged in properly etc, but obviously didn't solve anything.
Other options I haven't been able to try:
-Replacing the battery
-Replacing the charger
I've had a look around on the forums but couldn't find anything, so I thought I would make my own post! Let me know if anybody else has any ideas, or if you have/had this problem. I didn't include any hardware specs as I thought it would be standard with the model, but if you need me to provide anything I can do that!
I've attached some pictures if it helps.
Thank you in advance!
