Lenovo yoga 3 won't turn on [Solved]

Ask a question stuck college kid - Last answered on Jan 17, 2017 at 03:49 AM by Fudge Lenovo
Hello,
I'vehad my lenovo yoga 3 for maybe 3 months and this is the second time it's suddenly turned off. My friend pressed the power button a couple times last time and magically worked but he doesnt know exactly what he did. I can't figure out how to take the battery out to try that way and the power button isn't doing anything. What do I do?

Hi College Kid,

Have you tried holding the power button for 10 seconds? These models may require opening the laptop in order to remove the battery, which may void your warranty. I strongly recommend you to contact the reseller and ask for some guidance.

Hope this helps

Had the same problem on my Lenova Yoga 3 13inches. I held the power button for 10 seconds and the laptop powered off I turned it on again and it worked.

When restarted it said it was applying the updates so believe the issue was caused by Windows update.

Not impressed at all with the machine. Lenova shame on you I

It did the same for me...held the power in for about 1t seconds, let it go, tapped it and the machine came back on saying it was updating Windows. Thanks for the info cause I was freaked out! Especially cause I was in the middle of a discussion question for class.

This just happened to me - suddenly turned off, wouldn't turn back on. But holding the on button in for 10 seconds worked! I thought it had completely died and was about to make a warranty claim until I tried this! Thank you!!!!!

For professional's only. If your screen isn't turning on, but your power button light is on and your keyboard light. There's an easy fix for it. With mine there's a bug in the power management program. So I took my computer apart and disconnected my battery for a minute. After that my screen worked. It resets the power management program. BEFORE you do this, check the F9 key, F12 key and also try connecting it to a separate monitor(if the monitor works, it's your back light on the laptop). Also try holding the power button for 10 to 20 seconds. ... If none of these fix's work it might be your video card.

I'm going to write Lenovo about sending out an update to fix this issue. Beware, taking apart your laptop voids your warranty.

I have the same problem! Tried holding the power button for so long but nothing happens and no light to show the chargers connected. I've only had it for 2 days and I'm really upset and worried!

Hi loz,

If holding the power button does not help you, you may need to contact the seller. If your PC is a new one, you should be able to use the warranty. I wouldn’t advise you to try opening the laptop and fixing it by yourself. If you have another charger, try using it. If it is not working, there may be a serious problem which requires professional assistance.

Hope this helps

Did you hold it for ten seconds, release the button and then press it again as if you are turning it on? That is what I did and it worked for me.

I've had mine for a week, and it just did the same. No lights came on, even after connecting power. I held the power button in for well over 15 seconds before it came back to life.
It appears to be a Windows 10 issue, as we had the same problem with an Asus a couple of weeks ago.

Try this

1. Remove the battery and cable.

2. Press and hold the power button for 58 seconds.

3. Replug and start.

Good luck

The Yoga 3 1370 - Removing the battery isn't that straightforward. The case is held on by unusual screws, you need a special tool to remove. When you get the base off, the battery is also held in place by the tiniest screws.

I'm trying to whip the hard drive out of mine and don't have screwdrivers small enough. Expensive brick this laptop. Rubbish !

Bless you! I just had this happen to me, found this post and it worked! Thank you!

Why the system couldn't just tell me I needed to reboot versus turning off while I was in the middle of posting to a web site is beyond me. The genius who decided it was a good idea just cost me about 45 minutes worth of work~
