ThinkPad Yoga S1 (Model 20CD) does not turn on

2019-11-28, 9:14 AM

Hi.

I left my ThinkPad Yoga S1 (Model 20CD) doing Windows updates, after replacing my 2.5" HDD to a SSD (note: my OS is on the M.2 slot, so replaced disk was storage only), and when I came back it was off and now it doesn't turn on.
When I try to turn it on, power light ("i" on ThinkPad logo) shows up for about 3 seconds then off. No fan or any other sound. When Iconnect the power cable, light blinks 3 times.

Things I tried:

- reset button on back (small hole)
- disconnecting battery and CMOS battery for 30 hour
- pressing the power button 10 times in a row (1 second apart), then press and hold for 30 seconds
- reverting to the old HDD

- a new power adapter

None of these worked.

Any help?

Thanks in advance.
