Q: Yoga 900-13ISK Laptop (ideapad) wont turn on

hello everyone, I am hoping someone can help me with my laptop situation. Its a Lenovo Yoga 900-13ISK Laptop (ideapad), I have had it for 3 months. I shut it down Saturday and then minutes after the display had gone off I noticed the power button light was still on. I tried to restart it and no response. pressed for long trying to shut it off (this works on my Lenovo thinkpad from work) and still no response. Its now been almost 48 hours the power button light is still on and machine wont start. The machine has not been connected to charger since saturday shutdown. Since the battery is encased in the laptop I cannot open it without voiding the warranty. I bought the machine in US and because of work I am now in Europe cannot take it back to Lenovo US. Anyone have a solution for me?

Hello,My laptop doesn't turn back on after it goes to sleep. When I close the lid of it and after the screens go black, I press the power button and the lights on the power button light up as the laptop would be on, but the screen remains black. To get it to turn on with the screen, I have to shut it down and turn it back on. It is very annoying and I would like to get some help. The laptop runs Windows 10 Home. 8 GB ram, the i7 Intel processor. The laptop still has 200 days of warranty.Please help.

After spending another harrowing half hour trying to get my computer to boot, I have to ask: is there a way to turn off the battery unseat via power button thing? In case my description of the issue is unclear (it may be), here's the situation: I actually carry my laptop places.  I know, portable computer being ported around, weird right?  Well, since lonovo decided we can't access our battery, they gave us a way to 'unseat' or 'disconnect' it, holding the power button down for 20 s or so.  Of course, this causes a lot of people to do this on accident and think their machne is broken.  Of course, allowing us to actually remove the battery would be a better  option, but we're sorta past that now. Anyhow, the issue I have is sometimes the battery unseat command is sent as a result of me walking places with the computer in my backpack.  As in, I get places, and the computer will not boot... and sometimes even the standard 'press for 20, plug in, boot' process fails.  Anyhow, just spent the last half hour trying to boot this thing... it finally worked, BUT I would love to know... is there a way to disable this 'feature'?  As in, is there a way to prevent the computer from disconnecting the battery via a power button press and hold sequence?  If so, please let me know, it would save me a lot of trouble.

I purchased my Yoga 900 a month or so ago and it's been great.  All of the sudden this morning it wouldn't boot.  There are no visible lights on the machine, the power button doesn't react or glow.   I've tried fiddling with the AC adapter, making sure all cables are tight and that the outlet is function.  I've tried powering it on with and without the AC attached.  I've tried holding down the power button for 30 seconds.  I've tried to press that little reset button with a toothpick. No response. Any ideas?

My yoga 2 pro is a month old.  I used it this morning, then left it for a few hours.  When I came back I pressed the mouse key to get the intro screen.  It came on for a second and then went black.  I pressed the power key but nothing happened.  It didn't even light up.  I waited a few minutes and tried again.  I held down the power key for a few seconds.  Still nothing.  What should I try?

hi sjwach,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try to unplug the AC adapter, press and hold the power button for 30secs. When done, try to turn the computer ON and observe. If the unit doesn't show any signs of life, I recommend you contact lenovo and report your findings.

I am a very frustrated and angry customer at the moment as i keep running into Road Block and unacceptable answers.  This issue is enough to cause me to never buy another Lenovo laptop or any laptop at Best Buy!I bought my computer in July and in September i noticed a key had popped off-  the "< ," key next to the M key.  I have used the key board only when i was setting up-  now at my office and at customers i set it in downward dog mode ;-) and use a blue tooth key board.    So it is not from use that it broke.   I took the laptop into BEST BUY and was told that the key was missing a metal part on the back so they could not fix it onsite-  i would have to send it in and be without my laptop for a week to 10 days - unacceptable -  this was a month or more ago. I searched on the LENOVO website and could not find a way to purchase a single or the entire set of Keys!  I am self employed as a software consultant.   My life is pretty busy and i finally decided today to bite the bullet and ask for a call from Lenovo support.  Again i am told the only way to fix this is to send my laptop in for a repair.  I asked to just be able to buy a KEY - i am told that well they do not sell individual keys - they would replace the entire keyboard!  So sell me the keyboard and or send me one an i will take into best buy to have them replace it while i wait.  They cannot do that.   I live...

No sign of bios. I have read somewhere that i could try to take out the battery and start up the laptop without it, to try and clear static charge, but i'm not keen to take it all apart before I get some advice! James

I googled for some time and could find solutions without using screw drivers as this has built in battery. I got this laptop like a month ago. its working fine on day 1 but the following days, I cant turn it on without using charger even though the battery is 100% charged. When on battery, it wont turn on. Then I plug in the charger and tried to turn on but it wont start. The plug in light is on. And I would need to wait for around 30 minutes to try to turn on again. When turning on it would show something like this. Sometimes, the screen would blink in dark green and I can hear the starting up sound repeatedly but it just wont start. Anyone can help with solutions without the need to open the laptop as I have no clue to do that? Thanks in advance

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 was taking a 40 day break from my computer ending on Sunday, put it in the basket. I was going to test the bootup, and when i push power, no light turns on. When i plug the adapter in, i hear a very quiet buzz noise from inside the computer, and i push the power button, still nothing happens, no lights, no boot. Is my computer dead or what? I just got this for Christmas. Is their a way to fix it, i hear taking the battery and unplugging the adapter and holding the power button for 30-60 seconds works on some Lenovo models, but the battery is not accessible without me having to mess with screw drivers. I want to have a good working lenovo. Should i mail this in to Lenovo, or is their a way to fix manually. -Isaac Schaff

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,

Sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing.  You can contact Lenovo Support at the phone number I have listed below or visit a local Best Buy store.  Most Best Buys are authorized Lenovo repair centers and they should be able to assist you.  Since your warranty is probably expired,  you can also take your laptop to any repair center that a friend or family member may recommend.

- I have ThinkPad Yoga 260 (20FES0LQ00).- Power button does nothing.- Plugging the charger does nothing..- Hit the reset button on bottom. No change. Any ideas on how to best troubleshoot this? My guess is 1) bad power switch (not sure how likely that is), 2) shorted battery (seems highly unlikely) and 3) bad motherboard. Additional questions: 1) If I buy a used motherboard, will I need a new copy of Windows 10? Isn't the windows key stored on the motherboard so I would that key still work? 2) Can I upgrade to an I7? The currents system has a I5-6200U. Is it worth it? It appears that both use the same heat sink. 3) There is an listing on EBay for the same sytem I have (same type, different version) without a hard drive. Can I just install my drive in the new system without buying and installing a new copy of windows?  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!

Hello, I have an issue with my laptop as it is not turning on. When plugging in the charger cable, the small light indicates that it is plugged in. When I tried opening it by pressing on the switch on button, the light lit up but did not open. The laptop's battery is not external hence i cannot remove/ and plug it again without opening the laptop personally and that would void the warranty. I want to avoid sending it repair since they take a  very long time to fix and return the laptop and I need it for daily use. Help please !
