T460 Pungent Odor

2016-11-28, 15:51 PM

We've had complaints from our users that the T460 laptop they recieved has an odor.  One person compared it to feline urine.  We also have others in our depot straight from the factory that have this odor.  

 

Has anyone else experienced this?  What are you telling customers?  Has Lenovo responded to this?

Mine smells terrible as well. I got it through my company and they said it must be the model and the material it's made with. I'd say it smells like something burning slightly in a gym bag. Can you help?

I came to this forum looking specifically for other users with this problem, my T460 smells of cat urine! Is there anything that can be done?

My company just issued me a new T460 and it smells so bad I could smell my laptop in my sunroom from the top of the steps.  It get's worse with heat/sunlight.  I've wiped it with lysol wipes, febreeze and I've had if for a few weeks... this smell simply won't disipate.  It's giving me a headache. Since I don't have cats I couldn't place this noxious odor, but in hindsight in doing volunteer work with animals, YES it smells like cat urine.   What can be done to resolve this?

I'm intressting of a statement regarding this issue from Lenovo.
Why does Lenovo just send PM's to some people, please post a answere here in the thread.

My guess it's some kind of "battery" on the motherboard that are leaking - Idon't know the name for the part in english but every engineer knows what's I'm talking about.

I have a brand new t460 that was issued by my company.   It smells terrible and my entire office and upstairs smells and my family does not even want to enter.   Please tell me what can be done to fix this!   I am desperate.
