How do we download the battery firmware if the screen/computer won't turn on?  Can I download it form a different computer onto a USB drive then just put the USB drive into the Yoga2?  If so, will it automatically run?

"How do we download the battery firmware if the screen/computer won't turn on?  Can I download it form a different computer onto a USB drive then just put the USB drive into the Yoga2?  If so, will it automatically run?"

 

Follow the above mentioned steps (a few pages back) to disconnect the battery completely and to power on the Yogo with JUST THE POWER CORD. 

 

I can confirm this worked for me as well. Since several people aren't reading the whole thread, I'm going to make a new post, as this helped me as well, after a very frustrating night searching and searching for assistance!

 

To anyone else who googles this - 

 

If you are getting NO power, NO lights, and it looks completely dead - fear not, there may be hope.

 

1. I looked in the actual Lenovo manual to repair this Yoga 11s that my nephew has:

 

(it is located here: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_yoga11s_hmm_en.pdf )

 

Fact is, it says, if you have no power and no lights, you have a bad motherboard (or to replace it). Talk about depressing since I was just trying to upgrade his RAM!

 

If you follow the instructions in the above mentioned manual in (1.) above, get to the part where it says to remove the battery, and do so.

 

I then reconnected the IO strip and the keyboard, keyboard bezel and RAM, and, WITHOUT the battery connected at all, I hit the power button and it powered up! This is after about six hours of trying everything, and I'm a 20 year veteran of PC repairs!

 

As mentioned above, you will need a TORX 5 screwdriver/bit in order to take what you need off, but if you follow the above instructions (including in the PDF) you can get your laptop working again.

I have followed everyone's recommendations, but I still can't get my laptop to work.  My issue might be a little bit different from the typical problem that has been discussed above.  For a few months, I have had the following problem:  When I don't shutdown the laptop and I only close it by putting it to sleep, the laptop works great.  But whenever it shuts down, either through losing its charge during a long plane trip or through a restart for updates, etc., I can't get it to reboot.  The laptop's power button is lit and there is a constant click noise, but the screen doesn't turn on.  To deal with the problem, I have left the laptop plugged in for hours at a time, even overnight.  Sometimes the screen comes back after several hours, but it often takes several shudowns of several hours at a time.  I haven't been able to figure out why it works some times and not others, but I have eventually gotten it to restart every time.  Three days ago, however, the laptop shut down and I still can't get it back.  This is the first time that it has taken more than 24 hours of repeated shutdowns.  I have followed everyone's recommendations multiple times, but they don't work.  Currently, the battery is unplugged and the laptop is plugged into a power source.  The laptop is completely reassembled, but without the battery.  The power light is on and the laptop is clicking, but nothing else is happening.

 

CAN ANYONE HELP ME???????!!!!!!!!!!!!  THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have the Thinkpad Yoga 12.5", bought it 6 months ago, now wont reboot at all. I have always used HP or Acer. Current Acer laptop of mine is 2 years old and I have had a HP for almost 3 years - absolutely no issues at all with these machines.

 

Only bought the Yoga because of the hinges. Now having read the threads, seems like a common issue with Lenovo. Unfortunately the lack of response from Lenovo does not help.

 

Mine is under warrenty, so have fired away an email to Lenovo and am hoping that they will repsond soon.
