X220 Sudden shut down and will not turn back on

2014-01-11, 5:36 AM

I have a Thinkpad X220 Tablet. It has worked fine the last 1.5 years. It recently shut down suddenly, no shutting down screen or warning, just straight to black. The battery was full and it was plugged in. It will not turn on and when plugged in with the AC adapter no lights come on. I have no idea how to go about fixing this or what could be causing this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Zevain,


Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!


I’m sorry to hear that your Lenovo ThinkPad X220T is not powering on.


I would suggest you to perform Flee Power – remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer. Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.


Swap the battery and AC adapter with a good known one if you can to check if it’s a battery/adapter failure. Take out the memory, start the system and check if you hear beep sounds.


Please let me know the happenings!


Best regards,
