A:Lenovo Y50-70 wont turn on at all

Hello there, I just got the same problem this morning with my Y50-70. It suddenly turned off while I was working with Win7, just a black screen, power off. So I tried to power it on again and it failed, simply no reaction at all. The only thing working is the battery LED when the AC connector is plugged in. My Y50-70 is only 5 weeks old and worked without any problems until today ;-( I called the support at Lenovo and they told me to "hard reset" by pulling the power cable and pressing the power button for 20 seconds....no success at all. Finally after several tries I decided to send my Y50-70 back to Lenovo. It seems to be a hardware problem. Lenovo offer 2 years of warranty for the Y50-70, because of that I decided not to open it. Let´s see how long ist takes until I have my - hopefully working- Y50-70 back.Perhaps you have more luck than I.Greetings from Germany!

My lenovo z50-70 have run in to a bit of a problem and i think it is either due to the motherboard or the power socket cable. When the battery is plugged in aswell as the power chord the little orange battery light is lit but turns of briefly every few seconds. I can't start the pc though.When the battery is not plugged in but the power chord is i still cant turn on the pc. When i try turning it on it seems to start the fan and do the normal routine but for less than a second. Then it turns off and tries to start again a few seconds later with the same result. So it just keeps looping in a state where it is never powered for more than half a second or something like that. I guess it is either the power socket cable that needs to be changed or the motherboard is broken, but is there any way to find out?  Thanks EDIT:Btw, i tried the static electricity thing by holding down the power botton for 30 seconds while there is no battery or cable attached but it didn't help

I purchased a Lenovo Yoga 3.14 laptop from Best Buy about a year and a half ago. Unfortunately I have had to send it out twice so far because the keyboard stopped working. It was within warranty, so this cost me $0. Now, the computer won?t turn on at all (just 4 months after my warranty expired). I went to best buy to have the computer looked at and was told it may be a big problem. The computer has no physical or water damage of any kind. Sending it out for testing and repair it will likely cost me over $500. The computer was originally $800 and with its record of needing repairs I don?t think it would be wise to repair it just to have it break again (as it does once every six months.) I am finding it very difficult to get any support information from lenovo itself. I have never heard of a computer breaking so quickly and so often. I sent them feedback, but I dont actually know if they will contact me about it. Has anyone else had success using 'feedback' or over the phone? I love this computer and I would buy it again if I knew it wouldnt have these issues or they would give me some guarantee or discount. Thanks for any help!

My Laptop turned off out of no were when i wasent looking at it, when i tried to turn it on i heard a boom sound but it was quiet. Then i started to smell some thing weird. And when i go online and check if my laptop has warranty, it doesent detect anything.  But i recently got a email saying that i have 15 days of warranty. But i think the website doesent want to work with the serial number.  I have another question, does opening the back cover void waranty ?? I had opened it to just take a look at it and check if i saw anything burned.  So when i click on the power button, the fans wont turn on just the lights. I need help as soon as possible because i need a fast answer my warranty is almost void !

A:Lenovo y50 70 Wont Turn On Only POwer

Hi AmericanFighter , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
The burnt smell and the boom noise heard before the issue is an important event that should be notified with the technical support team. 
 
As some SN may not show readily on the warranty look up page at the moment due to some changes in the server  you may call in Lenovo tech for an immediate identification and recommendation for repair on the issue or you can send me a private message to check the warranty for you (don't post the SN as it should be kept confidential).
 
As per opening the cover to investigate , this would not void the warranty as long as no damage during the process as commonly done on customer upgrades similar to this discussion. Issue may either be the power port , systemboard and heatsink and fan needed to be serviced,

I haven't used my chromebook for about 3 days. It was probably completely dead. I went to turn it on and the screen was white. I hit the power button and it shut off. When I tried to turn it back on, nothing. I plugged it in and the orange charging light came on. Still nothing. Let it charge overnight until the green fully charged light came on. Nothing. I've tried holding the refresh and power buttons as well as the esc, refresh, and power buttons. I've tried unplugging it and holding the power button down and then plugging it back in. Still nothing. There is no external battery. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hello,  After 4 and a half months of not being able to use my laptop, I'm getting very frustrated about my brand new lenovo laptop. I bought my lenovo ideapad 700 in Germany in August (240V). I left in September for a year abroad in Japan and used my laptop on the first few days until the battery went down. After that I tried to turn the laptop back on again but nothing worked: no lights, no reaction, nothing. I was using an adapter to conevert the voltage of Germany to japan's voltage (100V). I tried with different chargers, adapters - I tried everything. I even went to a computer store here in japan but even the guy in the computer store did not know what was the problem. I also tried to unplug the battery (from the motherboard, I didn't actually screw it out) and held the power button for at least 30 seconds and tried to turn it on again - still nothing. I tried everything I could think of and with everyday, my frustration and disappointment in lenovo gets bigger. Please, I just want to use my laptop, help me..  Desperate regards,Robin

I even installed Win 10 and Windows Update found but couldn't install the drivers. I also have  Win 8.1 freshly installed. It's definitely not an OS problem.

I have an older Ideapad z570, it made a popping sound and it won't power up now either.  I ordered a replacement adapter from lenovo thinking that was the issue as the light on the adapter was not coming on when it was plugged in.
 
After reading some of these boards, it appears I might have an issue with the mother board.  I would like to see abou getting it replaced, but there are no repair centers close to me, and I cannot find any information on Lenovo's webiste as to who I can contact or where I can send it.
And information to this end would  be greatly appreciated.  Sorry to tack on to this thread, but seemed silly to create another one for the same issue.
 
Thanks,

First time posting, and not very educated when it comes to computers so bear with me. My screen cracked today on my T430. It still had image on the screen but very distorted. I have a working backup T430. I pulled the screen out of the back up and put in my main comp. My main will boot up (you can even hear the windows jingle but the screen had no power. I then tested both the good screen and cracked screen on the backup T430 and both lit up fine. But neither screen will work on the main T430. i then switched the cable that goes from the motherboard to screen but still same situation, works fine on the back up but not main. I hooked it up to my TV through the HDMI cable and I get the display/homescreen on the TV, and I can use the laptop like that. One thing I did notice is that when I boot the laptop up or shut it down there is a very very very slight change in the screen darkeness. I only notice this because the sun was behind me and shining on the screen. When I noticed this it had the craked screen installed. I tried to adjust the screen brightness with the laptop running but it didnt change anything Do you guys/gurls have any input or solutions? Thanks in advanced

Greetings, Today I was playing a game called Overwatch and I noticed that my laptop was getting pretty hot. This had happened before so I didn't think much of it. Then, suddenly, my screen went black and there was no signs of life for the laptop, even when it was plugged into the AC adapter. I let it cool down for a little while and upon plugging the AC adapter back in, i noticed that the power brick was making a ticking noise. I suspect that either the laptop just overheated or there was some sort of power surge to the computer, seeing as it wont turn back on. Help me please?  Thanks

Firstly thank you so much for this site.

I have a Lenovo U450 14´´ Ideapad. It has Intel Pentium and Windows 7 Operating System.

The laptop was smashed accidentally two months ago and the screen cracked. However, the laptop itself seemed fine as I was able to connect it to an external monitor. The other day my replacement screen arrived and I asked a friend to replace it. However before I gave them the laptop, I did a system restore to a previous month, for my own personal use. The system restore worked fine and I was able to switch the laptop back on.

My friend replaced the screen however on returning it to me, they informed me the laptop would not switch on – when I go to switch it on, it seems to start to boot but it doesnt complete the boot – there are some lights on (there are four little lights at the bottom left hand side and the first two - starting from the left side – are on), I can hear a slight whirling noise and the machine gets warm, however it doesn´t go to full boot up because the Windows switch on music doesn´t play, which is what I would expect even if the LCD screen wasn´t working.

A further issue is that I am currently in Brazil and it is possible that they used a different voltage to charge it (my laptop was bought in the UK). They said they did not do that and they would have no reason to because it was merely a change of the screen, however I cannot be sure. They asked me for the charger but we charged it and the battery is not dead. When... Read more

Hello, my lenovo (5 months use) has this issue it doesn't turn on, only the led indicator of power and battery, it was after i uninstalled my internal graphics driver, but i think its like a statistic energy bug, because when i opened the pc, i disconnected the battery and pushed the power button several times and then put the AC power cable and then it turned on. But when i shut it down again have to do the same procces again and again until it turns on and it doesnt always work. The only way to keep my pc on is to put it in sleep mode, never turn it of completely. Can someone help me with this issue? Thanks!

I tried unpluggin everything, holding the power button, and doing the thing where you press the power button 11 times and hold for 30 seconds also with no luck. I called Lenovo and they didn't seem to interested in helping me even though this is a known issue that Lenovo has ackoleded in a previous post. I'm not interested in paying any repair fees as it's Lenovo's issue. I'm not paying for their mistakes. Any help is appriciated.

My g580 ran out of battery while using it, and now it gets stuck on the lenovo logo. I tried a different hard drive which changed nothing, I've tested both hard drives on a different computer and they both work. However when I boot the laptop with no harddrive it will get past the logo go to a screen saying something about an unplugged cable then reset and get stuck on a blank screen.   If I plug in my windows recovery usb drive( and no harddrive) the the machine will boot normally and go to the windows installation screen. So any ideas on why a working harddrive would stop the system from booting? Also I've tried the whole taking out the battery unplugging it holding down the power key and then plugging it back in thing, did nothing.

Hi all, We are a school and recently have bought 34 of the above Thinkcentres for an IT suite. Unfortuantely 7 now are displaying the above issues. To recap: The screen is blank, but if you screen change mode it says on the screen it is in PC mode (so screen works)The mouse and keyboard are dead and yes they are plugged in!The green power light (bottom right hand side)  is constant green even if you reboot (5 second finger) it still is constant green when it come back, never orange and the machine does no start. Fan is operating.There is power to the machine that IS on. I have swapped out the power cables and mice, put the "faulty" mice onto another machine and they have all worked, but not when you place then on these 7 machines. If any of you techies could figure this out that would be great, it would be a shame if we had to warranty return 7 Lenovo machines due to being faulty..   Thanks all Andy
