Hi I have a Lenovo thinkpad x250 and I cannot get it to turn on . The only lights operating on the machine are the red light on the f1 and f4 keys and the green light on the fn key. I have removed ac power and battery and lights still on but cannot get anything to power up. Any help is much appreciated
 
Try the following and see if it will turn on.

1. First make sure the device has been charged.
2. Unplug your charger cord.
3. Remove the battery.
4. Press and hold the "Power" button for 30 seconds and see if the device will turn on.
5. If it does, great, if not yet, no big deal. Now plug back in the power/charger cord. (If it didn't turn on without the cord in, it should turn on once you it is in. Yes sometimes they will turn on, or try to turn on, even with nothing attached/plugged in.)
6. Now put the battery back in.

If this doesn't help, then test the power cord to see if it is good. Either try your cord in another device, or try another devices cord in your laptop.

Should that not be the problem, then check the battery to see if it needs replacing.

Thank oh so much for your post. I have tried your recommendations but still does not seem to power up.

When I put the power cord in it green light on the power button lights up for a second then does not seem to work.

Any other suggestions are appreciated.

Thank you
 
Hmm.. then either the cord is done for, or the battery is. If you know someone who has a charger cord that is the same as yours, I would see if you can test it on your device.

If that doesn't work, then it is time to look into a new battery.
