X1 Carbon Gen2 power button flashing

Q: X1 Carbon Gen2 power button flashing

My X1 carbon (Generation 2) power button flashing continuously. The current battery even though it says 100% it drains in 40 minutes, then keep getting battery is very low (even though AC power cable is plugged in). I have to shut down and leave the AC power cable plugged in to charge the battery again. It takes a couple of hours to charge 100% and if I start using it drains in 40 minutes (only browsing lightly). So, I bought a new battery, replaced it, when I turn on the power, it says the battery is critically low and immediately shut down. I left an AC power cable plugged in to charge the new battery for 10~12 hours, still unable to boot with a new battery, but able to use with old battery for 40 minutes per every 100% charge with power button keep flashing. Any help/suggestion?

My g570 laptop is 4 years old, so probably time for a new one...BUT I'd like to get some more life out of this if I could.  Currently I'm running only on battery power. The power button (upper left right above the F1 key) is solid white however when I plug it in...it'll start charging for about 10 seconds and then it stops charging and the power button starts flashing white.  I've tried the shutting down, taking out the battery and pressing the power button and also holding the button to discharge. Still the same outcome. I've also tried turning it on with the battery removed and just the AC power source and it turns out and makes it past the Lenovo splash screen but loses power before getting to the windows loading screen.  Any other suggestions? Or should I just assume the charging circuit on the motherboard has failed and I should rescue my data while I can?

Greetings all, Shaun here, new to the forum.
Thought I would post this, so someone somewhere may see it one day, and it may help them. Also, maybe someone here has an idea as to what may be causing this, as I don't believe i have fixed the underlying issue, just allowed myself to continue using my machine for the time being.
So, got up this morning, made my coffee, went to the desktop - Dell Dimension 9150. Hit the power button, NOTHING. Looked at the button, and it was flashing amber, probably once every 4-5 seconds.
Great. Opened it up, checked all connections. Unplugged, held power button for 20 seconds or so, until the green LED on the MB went off. Unplugged all peripherals, plugged back in, same deal.
Opened up spare, non working PC, that has a known good power supply (700 watt), threw that into the Dell. Sane deal. Started reading different forums. Decided to try jumping the green wire on the main power cable (24 pin), WHILE PC IS PLUGGED IN. I found, that as long as I would hold the jumper into the green / black wires, it would start the fans up, everything sounded like it was starting up. Problem is, I was nervous, as I didn't know if this was going to damage anything, so i didn't want to sit there and hold it for any longer than I needed to. Well, as soon as I took out the jumper, the PC would go right back to being OFF, indefinitely.
Original power supply back into the Dell.

I have a 3-4 year old Compaq Presario SR2017CL desktop and recently (maybe a month or so ago) the power-on button (green) began flashing when the computer goes into hibernation. I saw this a year or so ago and there was usually an update to Adobe, Microsoft, iTunes, etc. that needed installing. I've checked all those and can't find anything to explain the infernal blinking! I even downloaded an update to the BIOS and that didn't do any good, either. Can you think of any reason for the light to blink? It's actually the lighted power on button and not an indicator inside the box. Other recent changes I've made to the system: removed Norton Antivirus using the registry since there was no uninstall for the program (also a puzzle to me????) and uninstalled my Kodak printer for reasons I won't go into right now. Would appreciate and help you can give.

Hello, I have a Thinkpad X1 Carbon (5th gen), and I have a small issue with its power button. This is not something new; it's been this way since the day I bought it, but I'd like to know if there's a fix for it. The issue: To put my thinkpad to sleep/shutdown, I need to press and hold the power button about 1 sec. If I just press and don't hold down 1 sec, nothing happens. Is this normal behavior? Thank you.

Hello - I have about 50 Lenovo P series Laptops running in our comapny and within the last month, 2 - P51S same make and model has had power up issues.Users reported that they "control +alt+ Del" to lock out their laptops and when then returned the laptop was DOA. The signs are that the power power light is flashing every second ( Indicates in sleep mode)- FAn attempts to start but does not.I have tried plugging in different AC power adapter, disconnecting both external and internal batteries. No change. I have openned laptop and disconnected SSD, Wireless card, ROM battery, fan, speakers etc testing and no difference. I have tried to discharge by removing all power and and tapping power button 10 times and hold in for 30 seconds. No change.  I find it strange that 2 identical laptops would suffer the same issue at the same time??

About a week ago, I was streaming video on Chrome and my screen froze up; the image became distorted and I couldn't do anything with my mouse/keyboard. Held the power button down to turn the machine off. Waited a few minutes and turned it back on and was able to log in. However, when I tried opening Chrome, the same thing happened again. The screen froze up and become distorted. Once again I shut the machine down and this time restarted it in safe mode. The laptop has acted up a few times in the past and a system restore has done the trick in the past, so I ran a restore in safe mode. Ran out of the apartment for a bit while the restore was running and came back to the laptop frozen again. Shut down the machine again and haven't been able to get it to work at all since. The laptop turns on, the power button and the keyboard lights blink for a bit, and then the machine shuts back down. Based on other threads I've parsed through, it sounds like I might have a fried motherboard, but wanted to check if it could be something else based on what was happening with my screen prior to the computer dying on me. Appreciate any help!

Hi! I am faced with a really annoying thing with Power button on my Lenovo X1 Carbon 6th gen. If I press the power button and release immediately - it just ignores my pressing and does nothing. But. If I press it and hold for really short-time for about half a second (about 500ms or even less) - it works as expected. The problem reproduces when I am booted in Windows 10 and when the notebook is on sleep. The problem does not reproduce when the notebook is shut down. Be aware that this is not a problem related to Power Configuration in Windows - the Power Button action is configured correctly both for battery mode and AC-mode. Is there any chance to remove this 500ms holding time on Power Button so I can just click and release power button immediately without any short-time holds?

There are no lights on. Does this mean my battery is fried. Originally i thought the jack needed replaced, but the guy told me it was just my cord which Best Buy confirmed. So after getting the new cord i have this new problem. Usally there is a battery indicator light on when the battery is in and it is plugged in. I tryed taking out the battery, unplugging it and holding the power button down, but that didnt work. I also tryed it without the battery in. Is my battery just bad? Thanks for any help.

Hi every one,
Recently I purchased new PC,
After installing windows XP Pro SP3 I found that there is a missing button in Power option properties. The missing button is (When I press the sleep button on my computer), I can find only (When I press the power button on my computer).
My system configuration is as follow
Mother board Gigabyte EP45-UD3R Rev 1.1
My graphic card is ATI Radeon HD 5670
Windows XP SP3
RAM 4Gb Kingston DDRII
CPU Core 2 Quad 2.66 GHz
It worth saying that I can shutdown, hibernate or put my PC into sleep mode, so the functions are working but only the button is missing.
I will appreciated very much if some can advise me how to restore the missing button. Is there some option in BIOS that will enable this button?
I contacted Gigabyte customer support, but they directed me to Microsoft, I also contacted ATI but they directed me to Microsoft or BIOS settings. In my BIOS I can't find any option that may affect this button. Any advise will be appreciated
Best regards

A:[SOLVED] Button of (When I press sleep button) is not available in my Power option pr

Does the case actually have a separate Sleep Button? I suspect it's not even connected, as the motherboard manual doesn't show a connection for a Sleep Button, only a Power Button.
Windows Power Options won't list it, as it doesn't exist.

If you have a Sleep Button on the keyboard, it might not be listed in Power Options either. That would be up to the Driver software to add that option. You may have to use the software that came with the keyboard to configure the sleep button on the keyboard.

Hello,

My Satallite R830 won't turn on.

The power symbol flashes orange 8 times then pauses and restarts. there are 6 quick flashes followed by a longer one on the 7th flash then another quick one. The wireless symbol is lit up (orange) all the time.

If I unplug the laptop and take out the battery and hold the restart button for 30s then without the battery plug in the charger the flashing stops and the power symbol goes green, until I try turning it on, it has a split second where it sounds like it's booting up then stops and the orange flashing resumes.

Same thing happens if I unplug the ac adaptor and the battery and then tried the above but with the battery and no ac charger.

I have tried with another adaptor (same amp and volt output).

Can anyone help?

Many thanks

A:Satellite R830 won't power up - flashing power indicator

>6 quick flashes followed by a longer one on the 7th flash then another quick one

If the power supply microcontroller detected an error the DC IN lamp sends a blinking code.
The short means 0 and long means 1.
I your case this means: 0000 0010

Since error code starts with LSB (least significant bit) you have to read it from behind
0000 0010 -> 0100 0000 -> 40 H (hex)
Now you will need to know what 40 H means

According to some details which I found in internet, the 40H could be the S3V output fault. (S3V voltage is over 3.47V)

However, such errors are mostly related to motherboard problem (internal circuit problem) and from my point of few only part replacement would fix this error.

First, are you still under warranty?  (Some are)  Check here:
https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/warrantylookup
 
If you are under warranty, don't mess with things; call support.  In U.S. it's 1-800-426-7378
 
Assuming no warranty, if it were mine, I would try to reset things.  Pull the bottom cover and remove the main battery.  Disconnect the coin-cell (CMOS) battery and press the power button a few times to drain capacitors.  Put it back together and plug it in.  See if it is alive again.  DON'T DO THIS IF YOU HAVE A BIOS PASSWORD THAT YOU DON'T KNOW.

I just recently got my 6th Thinkpad, a 4th Gen X1 Carbon. Out of the box the left mouse button did not feel right, it would not click properly. So I took it off to see that the fragile plastic that holds it in place was completely smashed so that it would not operate properly. I called tech support and they claimed they would send me a replacment piece immediately so that I could place it on myself and be happily on my way. Now a week later I have recieved nothing and I call back and they act like they have no idea what I'm talking about, and tell me I will have to send the machine in to be fixed.  It is so frustrating that they sent it from the factory with this issue, but to screw up the support like this makes it so much worse.  I have been a very satisfied Thinkpad customer over the years, but this really has me thinking about finding a new brand. Rant over.

Hi, I am having a problem with booting up my computer. Everytime I turn the computer on, the HDD light comes on but the power light doesn't. When I press the reset button, everything starts working and the computer boots up. I think the problem might be the wires that get plugged into the motherboard. I don't know how to correctly install them and the manual that came with the motherboard doesn't help at all. I have a GA-7IXE4 motherboard with 1000 MHZ AMD and 256 MB RAM. If anybody could assist me with this problem, please do so. If anybody knows how the wires are suppose to be plugged into the motherboard correctly, please let me know because I think that might be the main problem. Thanks.
 

A:Reset button acts as power button

It shows the proper connections on page 15 of the manual.

Neither the power on or reset button need any polarity concerns when connecting, they are both use open/closed type switches.

Needing some advice please. I have a HP Probook 6470b laptop which a friend wants me to fix again, at one point he dropped his laptop and had the same power fault and when I discharged the CAPS and turned it on it worked, however this time trying the technique isn't doing it. I've tried with discharging and only putting in the battery, discharging and only putting in the AC adapter, discharging and put in both Ac adapter and Battery, I've tried taking out the HDD and RAM and tried discharging, I've tried taking out each individual component and testing but to no avail. At this point I'm thinking a motherboard issue as I'm thinking that my friend has dropped it plenty more times as I see more dents on it which could have broken a copper track. Does anyone else think this is a suitable diagnostic? I've ruled out the battery as I'm getting 10.55V output and the AC adapter I'm getting 19V as it states it should be. I'm asking if this diagnostics seems correct as I don't want to waste money or time on getting a motherboard if it's not the motherboard but I'm thinking that's the best bet. Cheers

Hi everyone, Avid user of the Thinkpad Carbon line here and really hoping this issue can be resolved - I've recently been having trouble using the left mouse click button on the 5th gen x1 carbon. Sometimes when I press to click on it, it doesn't register the click as well as it used to. Even when slighly pushing up against with my index finger, the button begins to make janky noises as if there was something wrong with it. The right mouse click button has had no issue so far which makes sense since I've primarily used the left click button during most of my work sessions. Just trying to understand whether there's a hardware fix for this available using Lenovo or third party services? Would really like to know since I enjoy using this machine for both work and leisure.

Does anyone have a solutions to getting the FN camera button connected to the Lenovo Settings program from the Microsoft Store in Windows 10?  Since upgrading to Windows 10 when pressing the camera Adaptive key I get an error message that this key combination opens the Lenovo Setting Program.  You do not have the Levono Settings Program installed on your computer.  Well it is installed.  I have installed  the latest Lenovo Hotkey package, Dependency package etc and have never had this button work since upgrading from Windows 7 PRO.  All other buttons function as expected. X1 Carbon 20A7.Any ideas??
