The power jack in my yoga 13 is broken. The central yellow plastic piece is missing and the pins were touching.
Does this mean I'll have also shorted the motherboard? Can I test for that?

If it's in any kind of warranty, send it in.
Otherwise, if you're comfortable working on a computer, the replacement part seems to be readily available and inexpensive. I'd start with replacing the jack and THEN seeing if it'll boot.

Thanks for the response.
I've had it for over 5 years, so I guess I'm on my own as far as repairs are concerned. I'm comfortable doing them myself though.
I'll buy the part and fit it.
