X220 Flashing green power button?

#1 Post by TrueRoze » Tue Jul 23, 2019 11:34 pm

Hey yall! I found an X220 on ebay for around ~$70 CDN and decided to pick it up to see if I can get it to work (was sold for parts/nonfunctional)

When I plug it in, the power button just blinks. No beeps, no fans, nothing. I tried changing the RAM to see if that would fix it, and it didn't. Any ideas how I could fix this thing? I really don't want it to go to waste bc I like this machine quite a bit :D

Hi and welcome to the forum.

This issue has been reported before. There is this post, for example:

So check the manufacturing date.
