Out of Warranty repair - Embedded controller timed out

HP Recommended
HP Spectre 15t-ch000 x360 Convertible
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, my HP Spectre x360 won't turn on and the CAPS lock button is flashing an LED. I searched the flashes to find the error code is 5.3, which means the embedded controller is timing out while waiting for the BIOS. My warranty has expired, but can I send this PC to HP for repairs at cost? If not, what is my best solution? I do not have the tools, parts, nor time to open the PC and find the issue.

HP's usual practice is that they do not do out of warranty repairs because they are not a general purpose repair service -- so it's likely they will not fix it.  Also, we are not permitted to provide any repair estimates.

Sorry, but this is just self-help Community staffed mostly by volunteers and we are not authorized to deal with warranty, service or equipment replacement issues. For these issues, you will need to contact HP Customer Support.
