N5010 Power light and left front LED (white) blinks and won't power on.

Hi All,

I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 laptop, the power light (light on the power button) and the left front LED white light blinks every 5 seconds.  It doesn't power on at all.  Please help me on this issue.

Re: N5010 Power light and left front LED (white) blinks and won't power on.

Same thing happened to me. It started shutting down for no reason, I presumed it was overheating so I opened it to check the cooler and to clean it (it was a good call, the fan couldnt sping from the dust). While everything was disassembled I replaced termal pasta as well. After assembling it, it started showing these symptoms, I opened it to check if I missed to plug in something, but no...

I wanted to check again today so I disassembled it again, took out CMOS to reset it, tightened processor screw, cleaned ram slots and after assembling it, I connected the power cord, and it started on its own working perfectly....

Re: N5010 Power light and left front LED (white) blinks and won't power on.

Hello everbody,

i had same expirience, my situation is next, i had problems with probably broken LCD display, i disassembled it totally, and again I assembled it totally, closed back cover, put keyboard, etc. connected all necessary cables, power button cable, status light cable and touch pad cable from the motherboard, and keyboard cable, but when i try to turn on again n5010, it won't turn on, just power button flash light and on led status of power 1x time flash, and if i leave it on power charger it flashs every 5 seconds, on battery power it flashs just when i press power button manually.

Please some more advanced user, or some who works in some service for Dell, share expirience with us, what to try?

I doubt on Cell Coin baterry for BIOS, cause when this n5010 display was broken at some unplanned jump Smiley Happy , i think slot of Cell Coin baterry is a little bit moved or a little bit damaged, but it worked before i dissambled totally for checking display ...

Now i tried to fix position of this Cell Coin baterry in it's baterry slot, with some tape, ot whatever, i try with another baterry, but not helped, again same problem Smiley Sad ...

My next doubt is power button cable which is connected to motherboard, maybe this cable is damaged, or whatever !?

I won't think on the worst scenario - damaged motherboard Smiley Sad(( ! Bad luck definetely Smiley Sad !

If somebody has some advice for 1x flash light of power button and led status of power 1x flash, please advice ?

Thanks!

p.s.

i tried with more options, holding power button 20-30 secs, and then connecting just power adapter, and again same, tried another Cell Coin baterry, next what i plan to try is new power button cable...

Re: N5010 Power light and left front LED (white) blinks and won't power on.

I had this problem for some time and have tried several things to rule, as you probe everything and not a problem of battery or charger or CMOS battery, I think the problem could be that part (I / O Board, WXHDY , 55.4HH02.001G, DG15, 48.4HH02.011.) if not the motherboard but I do not even think like that is.

Try to prove the next thing to me has worked, remove the battery and charger for at least 3 days then only connect the charger and turn it on, I turn on me, the problem is that if I move or turn it off for a long time or would I connect the battery again becomes the problem.
