Yoga 2 pro repetitive restart and won't boot

Turned on my laptop this morning. Worked fine. Went to try and use my printer to scan something to my laptop. Turned on printer and came back to my laptop not working. It is just turning on and off again. The power button and keyboard backlight just flash on and off repetitively. 

 

Tried searching forums for a solution. Heres what I've tried so far:

Laptop not connected to power source

Unplugged battery

Unplugged CMOS (CR2016) battery

Plugged laptop in and still getting same restart issue

 

Ive tried holding down power button and small button above it to no avail. I also tried hooking it to power source with main battery disconnected and CMOS battery connected. Always same issue: repetitive restart with no boot. Printer has been turned off throughout the whole troubleshooting process but worked fine with the wifes laptop after mine pooped the bed. 

 

Anyone got a solution or idea?

FYI - Took it to a tech. Said motherboard needed replaced. $800 or so.

Found a motherboard on ebay for less than $100. It's a little slower than my old one and doesn't output sound, but I replaced the bad one in my computer and all is well with the world once again.
