Here today we have a Lenovo ThinkPad S5 Yoga. They keep stretching these names out. You would think that they’d just simplify them, but no.
Lenovo ThinkPad S5 Yoga 15
What is happening here is no power when inspecting the unit, and we saw there was no power getting to the motherboard. Therefore, we suspected the Power Jack and luckily on this unit, as you can see in the below picture, the power jack is just kind of a separate board.
That kind of makes it simple to diagnose and do the repair. It’s readily accessible without any major disassembly. We were able to source that power board on eBay.
We got in the new one in a few days and popped it on. Voila, the unit powered up and is running, as you can see in the final picture.
Another happy customer!
That’s what’s going on at PC 911
