HP Spectre x360 will not start - battery not charging

HP Spectre x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Went to work on my Spectre x360 today and the battery/power indicator showed 12% left and it wasn't charging...even though it was plugged in.  I quickly turned it off to try conserve power but now it won't turn on.

 

I did notice that when it was on, the white light next to the power plug was blinking.

 

Any ideas?

 

Have never had this happen before.  Pretty frustrated.  I'm out of warranty but have only had the computer for about 18 months.

Usually that happens when the connector is not clean. Happened to me at least 4-5 times with different devices. I made sure I polished the connectors (sometimes the copper goes greenish) and it worked every time.

Argh...the issue was the power strip it was plugged into.  Apparently it was switched off.  User error.  Nothing to see here.  Carry on.
