YOGA 500 completely dead

2016-11-19, 17:15 PM


Basically I was charging my portable charger using my Lenovo Yoga 500 (14IDB), the Lenovo itself wasn't plugged into a power supply and neither was it turned on. I didn't know that the portable charger had become faulty. Later on I tried turning my laptop on but it wasn't turning on, I tried many things such as removing the cables etcetera but it didn't work but the white LED light was showing on the sides, later I tried pressing the power button for 30 seconds and even the LED light went. I did not remove the battery whilst pressing on the power button because the battery is in-built and I did not know how to remove it but yeah, now it's completely dead and I don't know what to do. Even the LED light is gone!!

Please don't bash me for my many stupidities. And secondly, does anyone know what happens when you press on the power button for 30 secs WHILST the battery is still in?



I've tried getting into Novo mode and I cant even do that.

Hi there, Musa -


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.


A power drain is where you unplug the AC adapter and the battery, then hold down the power button to get rid of excess power that's built up in the hardware.


Laptop batteries (which most if not all, are Lithium Ion) have a certain shelf life since the batteries start degrading as soon as they are manufactured.

I would suggest you visit the nearest Lenovo service centres for assistance. Schedule a Call-back for faster support.


Update us how it goes.
