X1 Carbon AC Adapter Port Problem

2013-11-03, 20:57 PM

There is a small black plastic part that covers the pins on the X1 carbon's AC adapter port. I noticed this plastic piece was no longer in the computer, but rather stuck inside the AC adapter plug. I pulled it out and put it back in the computer. 


I am concerned because this problem happened before and shortly thereafter, my computer would no longer start up. I sent it in for repairs and it turned out the motherboard was fried due to an undisclosed hardware issue that the Lenovo personnel were familiar with. At first I was told I would have to pay $1000 to replace my motherboard, but ultimately Lenovo replaced it for free. I was without my computer for a week. 


I'm not sure the plastic piece coming out of the adapter port is related to the motherboard getting fried, but now I am worried about plugging my computer in. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
