Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook
I shut down properly, and later when I went to start it back up, the power button seemed to not work.
I removed keyboard tray, cleaned and inspected and replaced.
Once with battery only, it seemed to get power but not thru to boot cycle
it would go over to the circled z light only (hibernate?) and with or without ac power, it seems not to get power? Green battery light when plugged in
battery should still be good, I get 2 + hrs usually -
I bought a second hand docking station (for the power button) and hoped it would re-route the power instead of through keyboard control - no love
any suggestions out there?
Hook up the ac adapter only and see if you just get power that way. If you do then you know the battery is faulty cause that would cause the power button to act like its shorted out.
If you hook up the ac adapter and the power button still isn't acting quite right then its either going to be a problem with the power control board or the motherboard.
