Thinkpad T430 turning on then immediately off

Hello,

 

My Thinkpad T430 has an issue where the main computer lights turn on (keyboard light, green power light, mute button), then instantly off.

I've tried the following:

1. Removing battery and power sources

2. Hold down the power button for 20 seconds (and variations)

3. Reconnecting power sources and turning the computer on

 

Still the problem persists. Any help?

 

Thanks

Hello and welcome,

 

With a somewhat older model this was sometimes caused by bent (shorting) pins in a USB socket.

 

I don't recall it being reported with a T430 but it's easy to check.

I have just checked all the USB ports. The "always on" usb port may be acting up, because it had stopped working before I started having problems with my T430. Could that be it?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
