X1 Carbon 3rd gen restarts instead of shutting down

2019-01-13, 15:37 PM

UPDATE:

The computer has turned on again after ~5hours charging, however it still restarting instead of shutting down.

 

My computer 3rd gen restarts every time I try to shutdown or sleep - even with different operational systems.

I suppose that is a problem with the power button, power button board or BIOS.

 

- Has someone experienced a similar problem?

*X1 Carbon 3rd gen does not power on after disabling built-in battery*

 

Hi, unfortunately I am experiencing the following problem:

- X1 Carbon 3rd Gen doesn't power on, only blinks light when plugging the AC.

 

Initially, my X1 Carbon 3rd gen started resetting every time I tried to shutdown - even with different operational systems. I suppose that is a problem with the power button or power button board.

 

For handling this problem, I started disabling the built-in battery on BIOS before going to bed. However, now the computer does not start anymore and only blinks lights when AC is plugged in.

 

I have tried clicking with a paperclip the reset button but it did not help.

 

- Does anyone have any suggestion?

Thanks a lot,,

Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds

Hi,

 

I have the original problem with my X1 Gen 3 for a year. Rather frequently the thing just restarts instead of shutting down, even twice or three rimes, even if I run shutdown /s. Searching the net shows that this is a general problem with Lenovo notebooks. It seems Lenovo is not able to solve it Next time I'll buy another brand for that smaller amount of fortune...
