thinkpad 10 ( 20C1 ) will not power up.

2021-04-21, 17:16 PM

HI,

 

I have been happily using my thinkpad 10 tablet up until yesterday.

 

I pressed the power button, but nothing happened?

 

I pressed the reset  button, but that didin't help?

 

I have tried various different types of power/ button combinations to no avail.

 

I left it plugged in overnight , but nothing.

 

I opened it, disconnected the battery for ten minutes, but nothing.

 

A meter on the battery reads 3.8/9 V, which seems about right.

 

Strange thing is, the windows button on the bottom still vibrates when touched, and the tablet is warm to touch as if it is 'on'.

 

Can anybody suggest anything else :-)

 

Thanks

 

pootler

Hello conspiracy,

 


Welcome to Lenovo Community

Before the problem occured, did you made any changes on the machine?
Hardware or software wise?

HI - thanks for replying.

 

The tablet is used as a car PC.

I seemed to have a problem with it powering usb accessories whilst shut down, so I did dive into the BIOS, and alter some usb settings.

I only altered usb settings for the dock, although I do vaguely remember a warning it had about doing that .

I assumed it was just extra cautiousness by lenovo :-)

Anyway, I cannot even get into BIOS by the vol up and power buttons, so I am left really confused.

 

What do you think?

To access BIOS, kindly try this link:
https://support.lenovo.com/ph/en/solutions/ht500222-recommended-ways-to-enter-bios-boot-menu-thinkpad-thinkcentre-thinkstation

Then load the BIOS default settings, be sure to save before exiting.

HI lorenzo,

 

Thanks for replying.

 

those ideas are a bit  difficult :-)

 

Thinkpad 10 tablet does not have  a keyboard .

 

The tab does not boot to any start screen- in fact as said it does not boot!

 

So, none of those methods are relevant i'm afraid.

 

Cheers

I suggest that you contact the tech support for your region for repairs.
