X1 Carbon 2nd Gen Type 20A7 won't boot

#1 Post by wclaus17 » Mon Nov 21, 2022 7:32 pm

Hi, I'm new here and have been searching all over the internet for answers, but maybe not the right search terms?
I have a low usage X1 Carbon 2nd Gen Type 20A7 that I have been using to watch movies on my TV lately (connected via HDMI)
I always have shut it down before putting it away until last night, I was in the middle of something and just closed the lid while it was running.
I figured that it would shut down or sleep automatically.
This morning it would not boot.
The power light comes on and the keyboard briefly lights up and the fan spins for a second or two, but after about 60 seconds, the power light goes off.
I tried the reset button on the underside, and various key presses while holding the power button (suggestions online).
All to no avail. The screen is black, it never flashes, or shows the post message.
Am I missing something?
Is this a coincidental failure?
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
