Lenovo Miix 2 10 Won’t Boot? Try this.

Posted on 01 July 2014, Last updated on 01 July 2014 by

Lenovo Miix 2 10After trying a reboot on my Lenovo Miix 2 10 today I found myself with a dead device. There was no charging indicator, nothing was happening on pressing the power button and it was the same with a 3 and 10 second power-button press.

Thanks to @marauderz I found the answer though.

That’s it! Hold down the power button for 20 seconds, release and then press again. On second press the little white charging light lit up but nothing happened. After pressing the button again it went into boot and everything is now OK.

I’ve had a number of boot and resume issues with the Lenovo Miix 2 10 but when it’s working it’s still a great 10-inch tablet. My daughter continues to use it for Microsoft Office duties via a USB3.0 docking station and I’ve found a new use for it with Movie Edit Touch 2 software that works well for simple video cut, transition, title, export and upload.

Thanks Marauderz. The least I can do is write it down to help others!

Here’s my full review of the Lenovo Miix 2 10.

    This is pretty consistent with the issues I’ve run into. Since upgrading to Win 10 (a mistake I will remedy soon) I’ve had regular issues with the system being unable to accurately track charge level (i.e. indicating that the battery is plugged in, not charging, and at some level of charge) without change whether it’s plugged in or unplugged and staying at that point until the battery dies and it shuts down. If I try to shut it down while it’s encountering that issue, it will hang on the shutdown or restart screen until the battery dies. To restart it, I have to let it charge for a few minutes to half an hour and then hold the power button for 15-20 seconds, release, and press again.

    Indicators that this is going to be an issue vary, but the battery indicator is a big one. The unit refusing to go into sleep mode when the power button is pressed is another. My usual strategy is to keep it unplugged until the battery tells me it needs charged, then plug it in and restart. Aside from this issue, it’s been a pretty good tablet, but I think I’ll be very careful about the next tablet I purchase, as this issue is VERY aggravating.
