ThinkPad 2 Wont Turn On - Solid Green Light?

2014-03-22, 11:16 AM

Hi guys,


I was recently given (yes GIVEN) a Thinkpad 2 by a friend.


It is just the unit though, he said its broken as it wont turn on.


I have acquired a USB cable and am trying to charge it by any means - apple USB adapter, through my macbook, through my PS4 etc but I am under the impression that it will only work with the original power adapter.


Anyway, i've left it to charge on my apple power adapter for a while just in case, and i'd press the power button and the green light wiould blink with every press.


Now, after a little while, the green light is solid but no buttons I press change that, if I pull the charger out, the green light goes off.


Any ideas guys?

I’m sorry to hear that your ThinkPad Tablet 2 is not powering on.


I would like to request you to perform the basic troubleshooting steps in order to resolve the issue.


  • Check with resetting the device by switching ON the system and by pressing power & volume + button

After performing the above troubleshooting if the issue persist on the device, the issue might be hardware related. Hence, I strongly suggest you to contact our technical support for assistance.
