Thinkpad S1 yoga won't boot or charge

I have had the thinkpad S1 yoage for around a year and a half. 5 days after the warranty ran out the laptop decided that it didn't want to boot up or charge anymore. After a few days of checking cable connections and trying different methods that I read online I managed to get it up and running again. Now half a year later the same problem has happened again except this time I have spent weeks trying to repair it. Does anybody know how to fix this? I dont get any beeping sounds from the motherboard just the power indicator flashes 3 times. I have tried different chargers as well, nothing has worked so far

Hi, welcome to the forum.


It may be a hardware issue, but just in case try the "emergency reset hole" on the Thinkpad S1 Yoga.

Try holding it for some 5 seconds.

I hope this helps.
