ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6th gen not booting, power-led just blinking 3x

2019-11-24, 17:14 PM

Hello,

 

my 11-month-old ThinkPad Carbon is not booting anymore. It worked fine this very morning. But now when pressing the power-on-button nothing happens. I tried to power it on docked to the docking-station (to rule out a broken power-button on the device itself), but with no effect.

 

The only "sign of life" is when re-connecting the power-cord the power-led blinks 3 times, and the small LED besides the power-sockets glows. I read that this might be normal for other Lenovo devices. I tried to press and hold the power-button for 10, 30 or 60 seconds, and then tried to start the device, but this had no effect, too.

 

Any ideas what I could do?

I don't know that it will help, but try the emergency reset hole .  Page 6:
