Lenovo X1 Carbon not powering on, and power button blinks endlessly

I tried to power cycle it, and reset battery by using a paper clip on small button under the laptop but does not power on. It just keeps blinking, and the ac port on the laptop blinks orange as well.

  • Reset the Laptop with a paperclip --> boot again with AC plugged in
  • Reset the Laptop """ ---> without AC plugged in
  • Hold reset-knob for 10sec, 20sec, 30sec and even longer --> hold down the powerbutton for 10sec, 20sec, 30sec or longer,,,,,,

The answer is that the motherboard is dead.  It needs to be replaced.  The power circuit on the board is damaged and needs to be swapped out.  No way around it.  Hope you purchased extended warranty.

This does not solve the issue, however great start point for Tier 1 diagnosis!
