"Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 3nd Gen. melted base due to overheating"に関する回答Hi everyone, just wanted to bring this to a close. Thanks to all that assisted me. In the end, I believe the poor application of thermal paste from the manufacturer was the original source of the problem. This model in particular I have read as having problems with overheating, so perhaps this is the culprit… This caused the overheating, and then the destroying of the baseplate. I removed and re-applied the thermal paste (ArctiClean Kit 1 & 2 Thermal Paste Compound Remover + Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound Paste 3.5g + Microfiber Cloth — I got for ~$14) and found that my computer no longer overheated. Once that was taken care of, I bought a replacement baseplate (for about $45 on amazon, but identical to the one suggested in this thread), and my laptop is as good as new. Actually, it’s better than new, since it no longer overheats! Also, the screwdriver I needed was #00; it was a fairly straightforward process, plenty of youtube videos on how to remove/reapply thermal paste.
"Power tip is bent"に関する回答Hi, I’m actually having quite a similar issue, with a similar laptop (lenovo). Basically, the power adapter end is old, and has worn out, which seems to be a common experience. It would charge only when in a very specific configuration, turning my laptop into a desktop. Anyways, I cutoff the end, and it appears the issue is with the blue wire (see picture). I’m not sure what the three wires correspond to, but in any case, if I could replace this component I think I could splice it back onto the charger. I don’t know what the name of it is, or where to find it. I could probably fix it myself if needed, but I would imagine it is a cheap piece and not worth the hassle. If appropriate I’d be willing to try and write up a guide/experience report for this (if successful) since it really is a common issue. thanks.
