I have a ThinkPad Helix 2 that powers on, displays Lenovo screen and if nothing is pressed it goes dead and restarts (cycle just continues). If I press Enter when the Lenovo screen comes up it shows "0271 - Check Date & Time Settings" and then Press Esc to Continue or F1 to enter setup...then it goes dead and restarts. I can get into setup for a fraction of a second if I am fast, but then it still goes dead and restarts.
Any idea whether I can do some form of a reset without having to have the device powered on? Or does it sound like the main PCB is a goner?

Looks like the battery might be causing the issue. I removed the battery and connected the tablet to the docking station (the docking station has a battery) and it powers up without shutting down and restarting.
