Flex 3 -1120 wont power on

Question: Flex 3 -1120 wont power on

I have a new Flex 3 it was working fine yesterday, I shut it down last night and plugged it in, it seems to have a good charge (and I have tried it plugged in as well), but this morning it will not boot up. I hope I don't have to take this back to BB today, any ideas?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Flex 3 -1120 wont power on

I had the same issue. it appears that a driver was installed but the system has stalled. It actually happened twice. I sent it in and they "refreshed" it and it did it again. I let the power die on it and it started back up. I don't know of a way to manually shut it down. The old way was take the battery out but its not the case here. The battery is sealed in side and I didn't want to give them a reason to void the warranty. You can charge stuff with the usb while it's unplugged, try draining the battery that way with a phone or tablet.

Hi, I just purchased a Flex 3-1120 with Windows 10 preinstalled via Lenovo.com. When I try to use the Lenovo OKR to restore the system back to the orginal state, it takes to the Windows 10 recovery options. Is this correct? Will the Windows 10 receovery option restore everything including the Lenovo preinstalled programs/apps? Thanks for your assistance!

I have a Lenovo Flex 3 1120. When I bought it, I went for the hard drive option that had the cheapest price since all the other options were HDD of various sizes and I knew I was going to upgrade to SSD anyway. The flex 3 I have though, does not have a HDD and uses an eMMC embedded storage. When I went to install the SSD, there is an empty space for where the hard drive would sit and there is no SATA connection. There is a socket in the board that is labeled "SATA conn1" but no cable.
 
I called support and was told it is possible to use the SSD and boot from it. The cable and caddy can be purchased but she said Lenovo will not supply the part. I found the part number I think,  1109-01051, but apparently no one else sells it either. There was one on ebay, but it's gone. anyone know where I can find one?

Answer:Flex 3 1120.- No SATA connection!

update: the item number is actually 5C10J08424. I still had a hard time a seller with it in stock. One website wanted about $70 for it not including shipping. I finally found/bought one on encompassparts.com for about $20 including shipping. I'll update once I get to try it out.

I just received my new Lenovo Flex 3-1120 ( Model: 80LX001KUS).  As delivered, it has 32G of eMMC.  I am desirous of upgrading the machine with a Hard Drive (which I have purchased).    I have discovered that due to the fact that the stock configuration does not have a hard drive that there are two parts that are needed to house and connect the hard drive.  From Lenovo?s parts list those parts are:5B40J08368 HDD Bracket  and5C10J08424 HDD Cable As much as I have tried I cannot find any option for purchasing these parts on-line. Please advise of options to acquire.

Hello, My windows updated a few weeks ago and after the update I had a few issues with my touch pad and sound. I was able to roll back my touch pad driver and fix the problem but there has been no update to Realtek High Definition Audio Driver for several years so there was nothing to roll back to. The issue I have been having that my sound has been contstently going up leaving the sound bar on the screen (A picture is attach below if it helps). This has become very annoying since I  have not found a way to get rid of this. So far I have tried updating and deleting then reinstalling the driver but the sound bar remains. Therefore, is there any way I can fix this? Any help will be much appreciated.Thanks,SoundMax

My battery was charging fine and then I clicked on the battery icon today to open up and the menu and it went from telling me the battery was plugged in and charging to plugged in and not charging. It was like clicking the icon turned off the charging capability. This is a brand new computer, I've only had it for a couple weeks. The battery and adapater are both okay according to OneKey Optimizer, so I can't figure out why it's not charging. Currently running Windows 10 if that helps.

Answer:Lenovo Flex 3-1120 Plugged in, not charging

Does your battery stay at about 60%?  If so, then there actually is no problem.  Lenovo Flex 3 has a feature called "Conservation Mode," which keeps the battery from charging all the way.  This will supposedly increase the lifespan of the battery, which is a good thing, since the battery isn't meant to be replaced.  If you want to charge the battery normally, just click on the battery guage on the taskbar.  You'll find the setting there.

My Flex 2-14 power button broke and the laptop would not start up at all.    I found that most times it could be powered up if the power switch on i/o board was depressed with a screwdriver, but it is not a viable or safe option to leave the computer open, so I purchased a replacement palm rest/touchpad. I very carefully transferred all the parts from the old palm-rest over to the replacement one.   Now when the laptop is connected to power adapter the power light is on, but the computer won't boot up into windows, the fan doesn't come on, and also the power switch doesn?t turn the laptop off - it is stuck with the power light on when connected to electricity.   Also, it won?t boot up if the battery isn?t connected to the motherboard. I rechecked to ensure that the cables are connected properly and also plugged in an external monitor via the hdmi slot - but there was no signal. I did a hard reset by unplugging the battery, ac adaptor and removed ram sticks ? but it still won?t start up and load windows. What could be the issue/s preventing the laptop from being able to power-up and going into windows? Thankyou so much for your help,Philip IT Support at Computer Help (Israel)

Is it safe to leave my Flex 3 always plugged in?  The power management is set to Conservation mode, (wi-fi is only connected when required) and I always turn it off at night.  Is it safe to leave it plugged inall day?  Also, should I unplug at night when it is turned off?













Solved!

Answer:Flex 3 15 - Power management

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
When you leave the laptop plugged in all the time the Conservation Mode setting is preserving the battery's overall health. With that setting the battery will only receive a charge if the charge level drops below the minimum.  Otherwise the laptop is powered entirely from the adapter.  While there is no harm in leaving the laptop plugged in all the time, personally I would unplug it during the night when it is not in use and it is turned off.

Hi RootieSart , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Would there be any indicator light showing up on the power (was it solid on ) Battery LED (was it blinking).
Initially what is advised is to unplug from the ac adapter and press down the power button for 15 seconds. 
 
To turn it back on using the Novo button ( item3 page 13). A novo menu screen should show up on the display. 
Any indication of power?

Hey, Ok, like so many others, I have a Flex 3 that has developed the blinking power LED of death it seems. I can't find a solution here that will help me, however, as I installed Linux on the machine to replace Windows. Therefore I can rule out a Windows or device driver issue. A few weeks ago, I stepped away, closing the lid. Since then, it will not resume. The power LED on the power button blinks enternally. If I plug in the AC adapter, both will blink in alternation, both white. - I have drained the battery, leaving it unplugged for weeks. When I plug it in again, the above symptoms persist.- On the advice of other threads in this forum, I have disconnected both the main and CMOS batteries. Still the same result. Drained the battery, disconnected, held in the power button: no change. Power and charge lights blink. I've owned this device for just under a year, and am a bit disappointed, as I was using the device on a long commute every day. I see a lot of references on this forum alone to it being referred to as a $300 paperweight. Hopefully this is an easy fix that I'm missing.  Any suggestions?

Hello,I have been facing a problem with my Flex 2 15 after windows 10 home upgrade.I've set the power options to do nothing when I close the lid, sometimes I close the lid and open it to find the machine shut down. This doesn't happen everytime though. Has anyone else had this problem before? Edit: I also noticed that after I start the laptop again, the battery conservation mode is disabled -which I normaly keep on all the time-, could this be related to the issue? Edit 2: I noticed that this happens in conservation mode -since the battery is not charging- and when I press a certain area under the laptop. I guess it's a loose battery. Is this common in this model? Edit 3: It's not a power issue. whenever a certain area right under the ventillation opennings below is pressed the laptop goes off.

Hi, I have a lenovo flex 2 14.The stock adapter had a rating of 45w 2.25a.Can i use a 65w 3.25a adapter? Thank you.

Answer:Lenovo Flex 2 14 Power adapter

Hi slanzer , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
As per hardware specification (page 28) :
AC adapter ? 90W/65W/40W  20V DC
 
FRU list (page 85) as example P/N  36001929 FRU Delta ADP-65KH BD 20V/3.25A Aadapter (65W),
same with P/N 36001651 .
 
Higher wattage would allow faster charging so do expect more heat generated.
It is ok to have higher amperage than lower of what is needed by the laptop as it would just draw back from power. 
 
Hope this help answer your query.

Hi, I have a lenovo flex 2-14, It was working fine for a year. The moment my 1 year onsite warranty ended, after 5 days, It won't turn on. It was on charging and I had put it to sleep, when I came back, It won't turn on, tried everything, removing charger, long press,etc . Then I went to Lenovo service center, they removed the battery, placed it again and it started working fine. So, I came back home. After I came back home I noticed that my touchpad buttons were stucking up somewhere while pressing. I use my mouse mostly, so ignored. Now, it has been 3-4 days since that & I'm facing this issue:1) Most of the times, laptop won't turn on while plugged in2) As it won't start while plugged in, I would unplug the charger from the laptop and try powering it On, still it won't turn On. Tried many times. (I tried to press the power button and listen if there is any sound, yes there was very faint sound for few seconds and then it would go off, It happened every time I checked)3) It would turn after around 15 minutes. (Happened 3-4 times). I am unable to understand what is wrong exactly. Also, I hope it won't go off fully like the first time when I had to visit the service center.

I imagine it's the motherboard's method of providing a diagnostic code but the service manual simply states a flashing power led is the computer in sleep mode.

So I have a Flex 10 outside of warranty that has a power jack which is missing the "yellow piece" inside. Therefore, it doesn't hold the power cable well nor make a proper connection to charge. Since it is out of warranty, does anybody have a suggestion of where I should go to have it fixed/replaced?

Hi all I have a Flex 2 from 2014 experiencing the issue where the battery gauge stays at 3 (or 1) percent. I tried to download Power Management, and then Energy Management, but got a message 'This system is not supported or is not confgured for battery firmware update.' The machine is running Windows 10, 64-bit. Is there a solution to perform a battery gauge reset on this machine, or is it no longer supported? Thanks in advance for your helptroy

Good evening!  English is not my first language so bear with me. It started around a week ago where suddenly I noticed that my battery is not really charging anymore/charging really really slow and I kept getting a window pop up saying that my charger couldn't keep up power wise.I ordered a new charger but still had the same problem. I thought it might be the battery, so I ordered a new one and looked up YouTube videos on how to replace my battery. I plugged in the charger but now after 4 hours i still can't turn my laptop on. Whenever I press the power on button it starts blinking red and after a few minutes switches to blinking white.I also hear a very faint noise in sync with the blinking. If I hold the power button pressed for a bit it turns on and it says 'Automatic repair' but turns off immediately.I'm really confused and not sure what I'm supposed to do.. is all hope lost? I hope someone can help me

My Ideapad Flex recently developed two issues. Problem 1: When the computer goes to sleep (via start menu, closing the lid, or being inactive) the hardware turns off completely. In Windows 8.1's event viewer there are two errors that state that power failed unexpectedly.This has occured with the power adapter connected, and without. It also occured for Ubuntu 14.04. Problem 2: The computer (when powered down) only occasionally responds to the power button, and fails to boot when it does. I have found a temporary workaround - resetting the BIOS - however that only works one time per reset.

Hey like many others I'm having some issues with my FLEX 3-1580. Issue: The battery originally would not charge above 15%, now it will not charge above 14%. The battery light near the power button is on, and the charger works (tested with DMM). Sometimes I get a constant on and off between the computer detecting the power cord. This makes the screen flash back and forth in brightness going from plugged in to unplugged (This is remedied by disabling Microsoft AC Adapter in Device Manager, meaning it then stays "plugged in", still doesn't charge). If the battery is not plugged into the laptop it will start on AC Adapter after many attempts of 2 second boot/stop/boot/stop. Attempts: I have checked the voltages from the power cable internally to where it plugs into the board. The top two connectors get the 21V. The CMOS battery is at 3V. I reapplied thermal paste. I reset all connections. Looked for component burn marks but couldn't see any. I know other laptops have had issues with the MOSFETS but I could not find any MOSFET on the motherboard. Ran registry fixer with CCleaner. Updated all the drivers. Flashed newest BIOS In the end I don't know if its a software problem and something seriously got messed up by a virus in my registry or somthing.. Or if there is something on the motherboard that is bad.

Have you made the printer the default printer for Vista , I think that when you have word loaded the printing properties default to Microsoft Office Document Image Writer and not your installed printer . Are you using driver 7.1.3.3 for the scanner , if not click here for that version , this is from the Australian Canon site , this is where I got the drivers for my N670u which works well under Vista .

Recently the power button on my Lenovo flex 2 14D (Win8) broke and I have had to resort to using the 'backup' power button by poking it with a paper clip. I've googled around a bit and it seems as if you'd need to replace the motherboard to repair it, something I'd prefere to avoid.  Another thing that came up was that it would be possible to change some BIOS setting to make the computer turn on, wake from sleep/hibernation etc when the AC-cable is attached. However I have not been able to find any such setting anywhere (and I'm decently confident that not only have I not found it but that there is no such setting in the BIOS version that's on this computer). I'd appreciate some pointers on where to find it. If it doesn't exist: are there any other ways to achieve the same or a similar result?Thanks in advance

I did that to my 3 year old z570 (max on the manual says 8 gb.... now it has $50 16 gb ram chips)..... Works flawlessly. It really depends on the ram you have.... is it soldered or is it removable. If removable, I would not wait till the warranty period is over. Do it now.  if the computer needs repair, just swap back the old ram. Ram upgrade is the easiest thing to do on a computer and there are thousands of How-to videos on it.

Hi there @JPMESQ, I hope you find your Support Forum experience a positive one! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you have a question about USB compatibility. I am happy to help with this. According to the USB 3.1 specification, which is referenced here: USB - wikipedia.org, "The USB 3.1 standard is backward compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0." So in terms of the connection it should work, but the performance will be limited by the slower standard. It is possible that some devices using USB 3.1, may not themselves not be backwards compatible, but that would be a case by case issue. I hope that addresses your question, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

Hi,

I have been searching several websites, downloaded a lot of junk and tested a great many so called solutions. In spite of all efforts I could not find a working solution for the LBP-1120 on W7 x64.
Although I guess most LBP-1120 users got tired of searching and simlpy threw away their printer, I refuse to do that. So I'm running it on Virtual PC under W7 x64, a complicated afair if one has to print just a few copies. The latest thread on this (and most other forums) is of 2009, so did anything happen after that date?
Does any one know of a working (tested!)driver solution for this printer? It's a shame that Cannon did not provide a decent driver. The vista / W7 x64 does not run on x64 platforms in any mode! Even for old Epsons I was able to find W7 x64 drivers.

Kind regards,
Dave

Answer:Driver for Canon LBP-1120 Lasershot on W7 x64

First, make sure you uninstall any previously installed printer drivers in add/ remove programs which may conflict with the installation.

Check Device Manager for driver issues.

Select the newest version from the list. Then click download.

Do not turn on the printer until the software is installed.

I tried powering up and hitting f10  repeatedly no change. There are no beeps what so ever on power up and while the system is on.

Hi this is my first question here.
I just bought a M900 SFF (i7-6700) which has a 210W PSU. I want to get a MSI 750ti low profile GPU but worried about the lack of power so Im considering upgrading the original PSU.
However, the motherboard has a Lenovo style 10-pin ATX and another 4-pin. So far I couldn't find any PSU that matches the motherboard. I would really appreciate some help!
 
Mod:  edited Subject line to add other system types that can use the same power supply and graphics cards
 
Also, I tried using the 750ti LP with the current 210W PSU. It worked fine with Would of Warcraft, but I havn't try other programs that might have higher power demand. Do you think I should keep looking for a PSU upgrade plan or is it actually just fine with the 210W? I used a PSU calculator and for my current system (with 750ti) it gave a 205W estimation, which is just under 210W. 
 
I've read many similar posts here on this problem, but found no clear solution. I bought this partly for the advertised 'potential for upgrade', which now seems to me a lie because I can't even upgrade a PSU???

Ever since i got this new motherboard and CPU ive been having a bit of a nightmare with it.

AMD Phenom Black Edition 9850,
4 gigs PC 6400 ram (Corsair XMS2 CM2X1024-6400
ATI Radeon 4870

The problem is that the motherboard will NOT power up at all with the 2 of the latest power supplies (600 watt+) i have.

It wont work at all with; (Nothing happens its just dead)
Arctic 600 watt Jeantech PSU (brand new and working)
Corsair 620 watt HX PSU (working)


It only seems to work with my Jeantech 450 Watt PSU and i cant for the life of me figure out why. Ive tried everything to get the board to work with the new PSU's. I had thought that the PSUs i got were dodgy but after testing out one in an older PC it worked fine.

Ive removed all parts and tried powering up and i cant get it to boot up. But the PC seems to work fine with the oldish 450 watt PSU which i find just unbelievable.

Can anyone help with this nightmare? Now on the Gigabyte site the CPU i have isnt listed as supported by this motherboard which is kinda worrying could this be the reason? If so how the old PSU boots up.

I just want to have the fracking thing working with the right PSU.
 

Answer:Power Supply Wont Power up - Gigabyte ga-ma790fx & AMD Phenom 9850

if I read the specifications right on your mobo... it implies that it has the 4 pin PCI-e input(power) but it also has the 8pin ATX power conector. (it may be simply removing a cap that is actually right next to the 4 pin connector, thus making it an 8 pin connector (thats how it was on my mobo)

Try using the 8pin power with your new PSU, see if that works.

Hello, I have a one-two year old Compaq Presario and it has stopped receiving power a couple of months ago. The battery currently doesn't work.

Last night my computer blue screened about 3 times then it just stopped turning on altogether. Wheni plug the power supply into the motherboard the neon fan turns on for a milisecond but that seems to be the only way that i can tell that there's power going to the motherboard.

I've tried 4 different power supplies, different processor, different BIOS batteries, different RAM, etc, but no matter how many times i try to turn it on it just wont turn on.

I do recall doing something innthe BIOS last night which seemed to start this dilemer. I went into power management and did something to the power switch option, then set everything back to default settings.

This is when things started to happen then my pc just wouldn't turn on at all.

It's a socket939 MSI CoreCell.

Could something i did in the BIOS really be causing this problem and is there a way to fix it?

Like i said there does seem to be power going to the motherboard but it simply wont turn on (i even tried different power switches just in [email protected]

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I just don't want to buy another 939 motherboard as most shops don't cell them any more and it means i'd have to buy a new processor too.
 

Answer:Computer wont turn on with power switch but there is power going through it?

If it is a BIOS setting, removing the CMOS battery for a few minutes should clear it. Since you've already changed the battery more than once, it would seem that is not the problem. Considering what you already tried, it might be the motherboard itself or possibly the graphics card but my money is on the motherboard. Just to be sure do you have another graphics card to test with?

Removed the board and looked closely at the caps for swelling leakage, but what should I be looking for on the board after pwr surge? Any techs here familiar with this board/situation, very common that the failing bestec pwr supply takes out the board, the Intel E210882 MOBO. Thanks in advance.

Daughter last used laptop on battery power and ran id down completely until computer shut off. She plugged in the power cord and it would not come on when pressing the power button.  Laptop was plugged in overnight and this morning same issue - the power light just blinks five times when you press the power button. This is the same behaviour whether plugged into power or not. I've tried holding down the power button. Tried with battery removed and A/C power, but then no light comes on at all.  I've tried removing the battery and A/C power, holding the power button down for 30 seconds, then install battery and plug in A/C power, but no difference.  I tried a different A/C power adapter and no difference. Any ideas?

I was running Ubuntu Linux then decided to change back to Windows XP. I was happily running the Windows set-up disc to reformat the entire hard drive. After this was done, the set-up disc went on to copy over a load of files and then went into a reboot, the screen went black (OK) but then everything just hung . In the end I went to power off intending to start again. The computer would not power off except by my pulling out the battery and supply cable. If I reconnect the cable, I can power on with the power button after which I hear the fan and the optical drive being read but then it just stalls - nothing on the screen, cannot get in bios and still refuses to power off. It"s either a big coincidence or the three symptoms ( no screen: no bios: no power-off ) are all a result of the failure to self-reboot during the windows set-up? I have removed the CMOS battery and left it out overnight but to no avail Can anyone help? My laptop is a HP Compaq NX6325. Thanks.

Answer:Laptop wont boot and wont power off

The first question is hardware or software? That this happened in the middle of a Ubuntu to XP conversion is interesting, but may be purely coincidental. It could be a straight-up hardware problem that just happened to occur at this time.

So, the way to determine this is to try to boot using some kind of media. XP disk, Ubuntu Live, Hiren's, whatever. It if boots, hardware is possibly good. If not, hardware is bad.

If hardware is bad, you WANT the hard drive to be bad. Everything else costs more money than the computer may be worth.

Answer:computer wont power up/power button?

I had a similar problem once and someone told me its a virus attack.... Its probably the same for you too. I had to format the C: drive and re-install the OS then. You may try that too...

Hi !! All,

Happy New Year to all members and technical assistants.

I have a little issue in which I require some help and guidance.
I have a PIII 900MHZ 256 MB memory with a ASUS MB-

Recently it died on me and assumed that the reason I could not get to power
it up is due to my power supply. I went out and spent the money and bought a brand new power supply from a computer retailor. I saw him remove it from a brand new case.
I installed the power supply , trying to power it up, I can see the fan rotate a little bit but not enough to power on. Changed socket and it power on.
It booted up but after 30 sec, it shut itself off and now I cannot power it back on until 15 min. later when I went and change power socket once more.
This time, the power did not stay up very long. As soon it powered up, no more than 1 min later while it was loading windows Xp, it shut itself off nad now again can't power it back on. I have a power extention and power bar in which I used and both shuts the computer off. Anything else plugged to it doesn't seem to do any affect. This is the second new power supply I'm trying.
What else can it be ? I have not tried to place the computer in a different room on a different plug yet. I will try that tonight but in the meantime, what else can I try ?

Thanks for your help and listening.

Cheers !!

My computer wouldn't shut down, even with holding in the power button, and so I just let it run out the battery. Then it wont turn on. I tried holding down the power button to clear out any charge that might be remaining. I have managed to get it back on, but I have to make a connection at the clip where you plug the power button ribbon into the mobo. Also, this is the second time I have had to do this. The computer works fine afterwards...or seems to anyway.

Question 1-I any ideas what causes the computer not to power on when it has sudden power loss?
Question 2-What can I do so that the next time I have a sudden power loss I don't have to take it apart to get it working again?

I like learning computer/electronics repair so be as detailed or technical as you can be to help me learn more about electronics.

Thanks

Answer:Computer wont power on after power loss

The power switches do go bad and can result in all kinds of strange behavior. You might try replacing the switch.

But before you do try removing the switch and starting/stopping the computer using just the wires to see if it is indeed the switch.
