Yoga 900 won't power on. Orange light blinks 3 times

2018-10-14, 20:32 PM

I was using my Yoga 900 this morning when it abruptly shut off for no reason. When I push the power button the (battery?) light is orange and blinks three times.

 

I've tried letting it power up for a couple hours, trying to turn it on when it's plugged in, etc. but I can't get it to power up at all. Battery issue? Something else? It's been a great computer until this morning.

 

Thanks in advnace for any help.

 

MrL

Hi mrlevski!

 

Welcome to the Community,

 

It shows in the User guide that if the power button is blinking, the laptop is in sleep mode.

 

Reference:

Press and hold the power button to manually turn off the laptop. After that, perform a power drain,

Let us know how it goes.

 

Regards,

I'm having the same issue.  The amber light blinks three times whenever you press it.  Nothing else happens.  Can't force it on or off.


I opened the case, unhooked the battery and tried to power it up with no battery. Nothing and the light doesn't even blink.

Plug the battery back in, and it just blinks three times.  Can't force it to turn off can't force it to restart.


I also unseated and reinstalled the ram in case that was the issue.  It wasn't.

 

I was just using the computer like normal when it suddenly went black and has been like that for days.  Just three orange lights when you press the power button.  


I've held the power button down as long as 70 seconds and nothing changes.


Thanks

I did. It was a bad power brick.

 

Most devices when they are low on power will save a little power to at least tell you it's a low battery issue.  The Yoga just went dark.  I tried all sorts of things including replacing the cable and reseating the battery to no avail.  Eventually the three lights stopped blinking so I thought it might just be a low battery.  On a hunch, I purchased a new power brick and it started right up.

 

Three blinking lights must be a low battery indicator.
