T430s Doesn't Turn on - Lights Flash Once

2015-12-10 | Default
I'm trying to fix a friend's T430s and the issue is that it doesn't turn on. With the battery plugged in, nothing happens. No lights and no sounds. When I plug the adapter in the buttons along the top of the keyboard (volume mute,power, etc.) and then they turn off and nothing. The motherboard was replaced, but the issue remains. 
Any tips or trick are much appreciated

Hi Cimanim,
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with No POST on your ThinkPad T430s.
Have you checked with performing power drain by removing the power adapter and battery from the system, hold the power button for 15 to 20 seconds do this process for 2 to 3 times and connect only power adapter and check.
If you find the issue still persists, then I suggest you to contacts Lenovo technical support if the system is under warranty or approach any nearby service center.

Hope this helps.
