Yoga 2 13" Dead? Battery light blinks 3 times but will not turn on.

2014-05-24, 7:32 AM

Just purchased a Lenovo Yoga 2 13" about 3 weeks ago. I like the PC, but I have an issue.

 

I was using it last night and I shut it down and left it to charge. Today when I went to turn it on the battery light blinks 3 times (1 second on, 1 second off x 3) and that's it. It won't boot at all. Have tried holding the power button for 3 - 30 seconds and pressing the reset button but all I get is the 3 blinks of the battery light (no power button light at all).

 

Is there anything I can do? Hard reset button combo or anything like that to try?

 

Thanks.

if you tried holding the power button with ac power, un-plug the adapter and try again.

if the opposite, try to plug the ac power and check if it works.

I'm having the EXACT same problem! The light blinks 3 times and the holding of the power button will not work either. My laptop said the battery was dying and was at 10% and before I could figure out why it wasn't charging, it died completely and the power cord will not charge it any more for some reason. I have only had this laptop for 6 months! And I replaced my old laptop (Yoga 13 original because of charging problems too!) I'm so upset about this. I will NEVER buy another Yoga/Lenovo.

Same problem. Replaced the AC  charger; no better. All started with Windows 10 install. How do we fix this?

Has anyone resolved this? I just took my laptop that I have had for barely over two years to Best Buy, where I bought it and the warranty. I'm two months past the warranty and am being told it will be at least $200 to find out what's wrong. 

I have tried new ac power cords, removing battery, checking connections, etc. I was told by Best Buy that no warranties exist anymore so I should just buy a new computer. But I loved this Yoga 2, I would like to keep it running but I feel there is an easier answer somewhere. 

 

Has as anyone seen anything in response to the 3 blinking light problem?

Had the same problem: amber light blinking 3 times when pushing power or reset button.

 

For me the problem was solved by replacing the power adapter.

Hi, I've got the same problem. I opened up the motherboard, unhooked the battery, placed it back in. Then it just blinks 3 times. That it did that consistently mean the power port connection should be OK. 

However, after a while, now plugging in is inconsistent. It just gives 1 blink and nothing happens.

The laptop battery is almost completely drained. It can only power up to BIOS and says critically low battery, and just shuts off.

I tried taking out the battery, and trying to run it without a battery attached, doesn't boot up.
