T480 doesn’t charge with the USB-C AC charger plugged in.
when the AC charger is plugged in, the orange LED illuminates and blinks three times, the plugged in logo pops up momentarily then nothing.
The thinkpad was purchased in October this year with everything working flawlessly... I then left the standard 45W charger at an airport. I ordered a replacement and received it 6 weeks ago and has been working fine until today...
Do I have a dead AC charger?
anyone have similar issues?

So tech support came out today with a new charger and a mother board.
Plugged the new charger in and same thing.. no charge.
Mother board was swapped out and charging in now working...
2.5 month old T480 with a faulty motherboard... is this a cause for alarm for more problems down the line? Let’s hope not...
maybe a breakaway charge adapter is not such it such a bad idea?
