Hi rahul27benjamin,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community

 

1. Please take out the battery and AC adapter then press the power button for 10 second and release it. 

2. Attach the battery again and connect the AC adapter and try to turn ON the machine. 

 

 

 

Regards,

The battery is built in, so is there any other solution?

Well, 

 

1. Just take out AC adapter and press the power button for 10 second, again connect the AC adapter and try again. 

 

If still same issue 

 

2. Remove and install again all RAM and try again. If still same issue 

 

3. Remove all installed RAM, then power on machine again. Is the machine giving beep sound?

 

If Yes: This is a RAM issue 

If No: The possible issue is Mother board.

The only thing that works was removing the back cover and than disconnect the battery. After reconnecting the battery it worked again.

Re: Yoga 500 power button blinking

Lenovo is investigating customer reports that Yoga 500 laptops may not power on when the power button is pressed, or after it has been held down for 60+ seconds.

 

The workaround is to unplug the AC adapter, remove the bottom cover, and remove the battery then reinsert it. (This will not void warranty.)

 

I will post again when I have more information.

 

Thank you,

Re: Yoga 500 power button blinking

Hi. Was there an update? I have the same issue. Good to see Lenovo are aware but is anything going on to sort it? I have had several Lenovo laptops. Love them and they are complete work horses. This is the first time I have had an issue and on my daughters new laptop. She needs it for a project over Christmas so really need help.

Re: Yoga 500 power button blinking

Same problem worked Christmas Day and Boxing Day but won't turn on this morning - very upset daughter! Any updates? - battery built in and I'm not comfortable removing the bottom panel.
