Lenovo Y510p - Charger not working/burning smell

Hey guys,

Recently I woke up to a nightmare of a laptop issue. Laptops battery was dead and charger wasn't working. Once more, If I plugged in the charger, it would make this odd pulsing noise.

Upon further investigation, I could smell something burning coming from the laptop. The adaptor isn't what's wrong from my belief as I ordered a new one and it made the same noise as the first. Does anyone have any ideas what might be wrong with it?

Edit: The laptop is a year and half old.

It blown inside and maybe blowing the power supplies if it has not output either now.

Is it repairable you think?

Hi Hoopy,


Regarding the issue, I assume it is no longer powering on. If you're asking if it is still repairable, I believe so. It's possible that it is the motherboard or the power supply board that's causing it.

 

I recommend for you to contact Lenovo Support at 1-877-453-6686, to check for options that you can do for the unit.

Re: Lenovo Y510p - Charger not working/burning smell

Hey this happened to me with my Y510p. I was playing a game and the laptop died while the charger was plugged in. There was a pulsing, buzzing noise coming from the outlet, so I unplugged the charger from the laptop and the pulsing stopped. The charger was super hot. I took the laptop in to get it checked out, and a power chip on my motherboard was fried. I'm pretty sure the transformer in the A/C adapter malfunctioned and the electronics in my laptop were at too high a voltage/current. I'm not sure if this is a common occurance or not, but I now have to pay for both the laptop repairs as well as a new charger.
