X220 - after clean win install, battery charger does not say "charging" or "not charging" any more.

Question: X220 - after clean win install, battery charger does not say "charging" or "not charging" any more.

X220 - after clean win install, battery charger does not say "charging" or "not charging" any more. On factory install it would say 'not charging' and drain battery below 100% until 95% or similar.

Battery won't charge, have 2 batteries and both in great shape. Now for some reason they won't charge and checking under power options it shows they aren't charging but reads the battery.

Can this be caused by a software problem?

I faced this problem for the third time and it seems that now I will need to get fixed by some specialist.  It has started to mess things around when I left until 3% or less and I did not plug a charger on time, then battery died completely and I could not power it back again. First time it happened, the power has gone back after 3 or more hours after trying so many different sockets in the house. Second time I had exactly the same issue but I thought it might have been a charger problem, so I bought a new charger compatible with my laptop. Luckily, it worked fine and charged my laptop when it was plugged in on time. However, the third time I left it on the 3% and left in on the sleep mode and the next day my laptop was completely dead, did not show any reaction when the new charger was plugged in.And now, I am not planning to buy a new charger, because it does not seem it is a charger fault, but the battery's. I have spoken to some specialist who deal with computers and they have adviced me to open the battery and 'awaken' it. Obviously I am not going to do it myself, as it has to be brought to a repair centre or laboratory, where they can do so.Has anyone faced this problem? Any suggestions what could have happened and what is the solution for this problem?  

Answer:The battery charger is not charging in Y3P

hi Viktorija,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
I don't have a Y3P here for testing but when you plugged-in the AC adapter and let it charge (e.g., 30mins-1hr), do you see any change on the battery light status indicator?
  - Link to picture
 
Batteries degrade overtime due to heat and daily use but they're less likely to fail especially if you just had this unit under a year.
 
If you don't see any changes on the battery light indicators then it's either that the battery or its connection to the motherboard is faulty
 
Y3P Video Disassembly Guide (see Battery Removal)
 
If the machine does turn ON after being charged for 30mins, try to update the BIOS and ensure the charger is in the correct position when charging the battery.
 
Article:
https://support.lenovo.com/au/en/documents/ht103346
 
If the above steps are not applicable and the machine still doesn't turn ON then I recommend you contact the lenovo helpdesk and report the problem.

My ex's 3000 N200 (0769-BMG) has stopped charging its battery.  Thankfully (I think) I have an almost identical model so have been able to test her charger and battery both of which are fine. I charged up her battery to 100% on my laptop & put it back in her system.  With the laptop still off the charge light remains green for a minute or so and then starts flashing orange. When started up and in Windows (XP), it recognises that it's on AC power but the battery life % starts to drop so the adapter is obviously not able to support the laptop by itself.  To prove this I removed the battery and the laptop turned itself off immediately. So I'm guessing therefore that this is a motherboard problem, but more specifically just the charging circuit .  It's only 5 months outside it's year warranty so I'm highly disappointed, and very concerned seeing as I've got one myself! Have I any options other than returning it to a Lenovo Authorised Service Centre?  I've replaced motherboards on other manufacturers laptops but can't find a UK supplier for a replacement Lenovo motherboard. Any help gratefully received. Bob

Hi there,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.
 
As I understand that you have query regarding battery charging in Ideapad 510 15IKB
Better practice would be to use Battery Conservation Mode.
If you are using Windows 10 you can enable Conservation Mode from Lenovo Settings

Hello there, I have a Lenovo Thinkpad X220 42914CG that will not charge my 9 cell battery nor the 4 cell battery I bought extra.  This computer is only a few months old, so I can just send it to service, but I'd prefer to fix it myself if it's just a simple issue of updating the BIOS firmware or similar. Observations: When I pull out the power cord from a running laptop, it immediately blacks out, so I assume the battery is totally flat.When I plug the power cord in a shut down laptop, the battery lamp on the laptop lid flashes green three times and then stays off.When I plug in the power cord, power on, and enter the BIOS, the laptop battery lamp doesn't indicate charging; usually it would flash orange, then green, and finally stay green.  (The point of entering the BIOS here is to keep operating system-specific issues out of the equation).When I boot into Ubuntu 11.10, the battery indicator says that the laptop is on AC power and the battery is charged 5%.  The history charge graphs show that no charging has been happening the past few days.Here is the battery-related information I can retrieve from the ACPI driver:[email protected]:~$ tree /proc/acpi/battery//proc/acpi/battery/???

Answer:Thinkpad X220 battery not charging

Zta,
 
This seems odd that the situation has affected two unrelated batteries.  
 
I know we had some no charge issues on other batteries and we've released firmware updates to address them, but I don't see the X220 listed.  Here is an example of the firmware update for some other models..
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-75738
 
I mention these in case you are searching ...
 
Since those don't apply, I can think of several possibilities...
 
1) Software settings.  If you were running windows, with our power manager, you could customize the charging start / stop thresholds.  Since you are running Linux, I don't know if there are similar controls.  I'm also not sure, but if the system were off and the battery needs charging and you plug it in, I would expect it to charge regardless of the settings.    I don't think this is it because you note they won't charge even with the system off.
 
2) Out of spec AC adapter.  It is possible that the output from the AC adapter is out of spec - under volt or under current - less than expected wattage.  You can easily test voltage with a digital multi-meter if you have one.  Given the degraded system performance, this might be the first thing to try.   Are you running the 65 or 90w?   
 
Another reason to start there is that service can just ship you another AC adapter and you don't have to send in the system.

I have an old T23. Two months ago it suddenly stopped charging the battery. It seems as an IC problem. Therefore, I decided to buy an external battery charger (ThinkPad Multiple Battery Charger II, P/N: 22P9040), and a new battery, since the old one could drive the T23 for less than, say, 15 minutes. After receiving the charger and a new battery (from two different suppliers in USA), I found a strange problem: the old battery is charging normally, but operates for 15 minutes, or less, and the new one is not charging - the orange light flashes permanently. After that, I decided to buy another new battery, this time from Hong Kong, but the whole story repeated. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I wanted to how to avoid this battery damage. This is my second experience with this issue. One was with my first laptop Toshiba bought in US, which when using in EU and charging it with the same charger + adapter, the battery life decreased significantly. The battery would only last 20-30min or so. Where as before it was about 1h to 2hrs. The second one is with my current Macbook also bought in US and now using in EU. Same thing. I just changed the removable adapter on the charger and again full charge only gives me about 1h or so where before it would be 2-3hrs. Any ideas how to resolve this problem?

I have recently been on holiday and before I left I unplugged my laptop from the mains and so the battery ran down to nothing. I came home and plugged it back in again, turned my laptop on and now it is telling me that I have the wrong battery or battery charger and so it will not charge. However, I know for a fact that both the battery and the charger are the ones that came with the laptop when my stepfather bought it new around three years ago. Any ideas would be helpful! Thanks

Hello I am using ThinkPad X220 with 9-cell battery (FRU P/N 42T4940)Yesterday, I update my system with Lenovo system Update, and the battery firmware update is the only important updates that I (try) to install. Long story short, when the program said that the sytem will automatically shuts down after the firmware update is complete, I clicked next to start the upgrade. Suddenly my system shut down right after the firmware upgrade started and when I turn it on again, it said that the firmware upgrade was failed and I need to turn my computer off. After I turn my computer on, the Power Manager said that my battery canot be charged because of poor condition from normal wear (my battery still can hold more than 85% of charge, more specifically 87%).I even tried to update it again using Windows 7 but no luck. From that on, I cannot charge my battery despite any ways that I tried (reset power gauge, take off the battery while the system turned on and charge it when it turned off, etc) Is there any solution for my problems?Anyway I am using the latest version of BIOS available (1.42 - EC 1.24)I am using UEFI booting with GRUB as main bootloader (Windows 10 and Debian 8.0) but when using Windows 7 I am using the legacy booting with GRUB as main bootloader

Answer:Battery is not charging after buying new charger for Qosmio X300

> I went back to the company and they tald me that the charger is fine and that the battery just died couse it was her time to die !!!

Well, can you use the notebook without the battery but only in connection with the AC adaptor?
If yes, then the AC adaptor is OK and fully compatible.

The Ac Adaptor should support the 19V and 9,5A
The Ampere (A) value could be a little bit different. This is no matter but the Volt (V) value has to be the same 19V

In your case the battery could be faulty or there is some problem with power supply electronic on the motherboard.
But I think the battery should be checked firstly

By default, Power Manager starts charging when below 95%. If you plug it in with the battery between 96% and 99%, it won't charge.For long lasting batteries, set a lower charging threshold of around 85% max, and avoid discharging below 10%.

Hello, I have a 3 yr old Ideapad Z510(that came with Win8)which worked absolutely fine until recently. If I plug in the charger when the laptop is on, it abruptly turns off and would never boot again until I remove the charger. However, this is not how it behaves every time. There are some rare instances where I could still operate the machine with charger plugged in.  When turned off, battery is charging and also goes to full 100%. When turned on(battery mode) it does not drain rapidly - I could still get a fairly decent stand up time. So I am assuming the battery is good. I don't see any thermal issues either. Things I tried:-------------- > Tried with a different charger - no help.> Updated the firmware - no help.> Update the entire driver pack - no help.> Applied windows patches, reinstalled and also upgraded windows to Win 10 - no help.> Reseated the battery and associated cables - no help.  I am not sure if there is anything that I could do to at least diagonize the problem before I give it to the service station. Any pointers on this is much appreciated   Thanks much in advance.

All, my Inspiron 15 5000 15-5545 is having an error with the battery charger saying that it is not recognized and that the charger will not charge my computer.  I know that this is an official Dell charger (it is the charger that came with the laptop) - so there shouldn't be an identification issue.  
I have noticed that there is a pin problem, however.  There are six pins in the laptop charging port (2 for charger identification in the middle and the four other pins that connect to the charger itself at the 3, 6, 9, and 12-o'clock positions).  Whenever I plug in my charger the pin at the 6-o'clock position gets bent upward towards the 2 identification pins.  This may also be bending the identification pins upward, but I am not sure because it looks like they are in the same place, just the 6-o'clock pin is not in the same place.  
I believe that this may be the issue, and has this happened to many people before?  Is there a permanent solution to this?  Do I need to replace my charging port?

Answer:Inspiron 5545 AC charger not recognized (Battery plugged in, not charging)

It sounds likely there's damage to the DC port, yes.  You may want to try another adapter before replacing that.

Hi all fellow ThinkPaddlers! I am attempting to run my T40 from solar and this is one ambitious project but I felt charging 2 large capacity spare batteries seems more practical. I always left home in the morning and get home in the evening and I thought it's ideal. I thought about this setup but I wonder whether it would work or not. (I hated paying too much to my national sole utility provider for the electricity, and also because I didn't snag a job through an interview with them, gggrrrrr, so less profits for them is my objective!). Besides, I'm in sunny Singapore so I thought of getting energy from the sky instead of paying companies to burn palm oil, natural gas and all that crap that cleared forests in Malaysia and Indonesia. Anyway, I am thinking of getting three more 9-cell batts to add to my existing 9-cell and I intend to use 2 of them while I'm roaming outside to "play" my T40 and the remaining 2 to rest at home to get charged from 2 26-watt 12v Brunton solar cells, running thru a 12v 4.5A controller regulator and a car adapter and then thru the Multiple Battery Charger II (Part number: 22P9040). initially, I thought fantasy of it but when I read the specs of each component and calculated them, I was very skeptical of getting my 2 9-cell charged for one day. Layout goes like this: 2 or 3 Brunton 26w 12v PV panels -> 12v 4.5A solar regulator -> 120w dc-dc car adapter (Vanson SDR-120w) selected to 16v 3.5A -> Multiple Battery Charger II -> my 2...

So lately I've been having an issue with my laptop.  The charger is plugged in but the computer doesn't seem to recognize it unless I shift the laptop to a certain position.  This seems to have little to do with the position of the AC plug in the DC port at all as it's not the same positions that will actually get the computer to recognize the charger is plugged in. I don't think this has anything to do with the battery itself as removing the battery does not make the connection more consistent.  The computer will still not recognize the AC adapter is plugged in.  I had the same problem with my old laptop, a V570. It will also briefly lose connection and restore it before my display can process it.  I know this by the CPU throttle in the BIOS (which I can't access to turn off because of the version of BIOS used) will randomly slow my computer down and won't restore to full speed when the charger is making connection again. What just happened lately which is making me wonder about this more is that my laptop stopped recognizing the charger as being plugged in in the tray icon but the charger light on my laptop started flashing orange.  The blue power light was also flashing. Sometimes when I restart my computer to reset the CPU throttle, I will get a pop-up message from the Battery Management Software stating, "Adapter has limited support: performance will be affected ..." Full specs available on the purchase page here. &n...

Answer:Sony Vaio - shows charging, but not charging the battery?

From: Recovery and Troubleshooting Guide
Connect to a Power Outlet in the Startup Guide.
When you intend to run your VAIO computer on battery power, the battery pack may have run out of power. Connect the computer to a power outlet. For details, refer to Connect to a Power Outlet in the Startup Guide.
If you did not previously follow the standard procedure to turn off your VAIO computer, the power controller may be suspended due to a program error.
Do as follow:
- On the models with a built-in battery pack, unplug all cables and peripheral devices, including the AC adapter and USB devices, from the computer, push and hold the battery off button for at least three seconds with a thin, straight object (such as a paper clip), and leave the computer for at least
five minutes. Then, plug the AC adapter and turn on the computer once again. For the location of the battery off button, refer to Locating Parts and Controls in the Startup Guide.
- On the models with a removable battery pack, unplug all cables and peripheral devices, including the AC adapter and USB devices, from the computer, remove the battery pack, and leave the computer for at least five minutes. Then, reinstall the battery pack and turn on the computer once again.
? If the charge indictor is blinking or the ? power button does not work, a battery error may have occurred or the battery pack may not be detected.

Hi ! Over the past two weeks I've spent my time troubleshooting why my recently (used) bought X240 is not charging the internal battery. Short timeline: 1. Bought used X240 in good condition but with dead internal and external battery - working well when using power supply.2. Came home and tested that thing -> both batteries show "0% - not charging" (with Win10Pro installed) *suprise, surprise*3. Ordered both new internal and external battery.4. External battery came 1.5 weeks ago. Installed it and worked like a charm (Battery 2 (external): X%, charging).5. Internal battery came the day before yesterday. Installed it and did not work -> "Battery 1: 53% - plugged in, charging - Battery 2: 6% - plugged in, not charging)6. Waited the recommended 6-12 hours like it was written in the "manual" to get it fully charged.7. Next morning -> Batterystatus unchanged (see point 5) ... It's stuck at 53%. Though the status says it's charging, it doesn't.8. Simply tried out what's going to happen when I pull the cable of the power supply -> Notebook instant off *hmmm*9. As the external battery was obviously blocked from charging by the internal (as it was not charged), I've taken out the internal battery again and et voila, external battery is charging again.I've tried to remove both batteries and perform the "Magic Trick" (press the main power switch for 30 secs) and I've also pushed the "reset" switch on the backside near the battery. Sadly without any result ;-(... Read more

Hello and peace on you..
I have a DELL Inspiron N5110 from early 2011
I was using the laptop correctly..The laptop was plugged in and the battery was charging..Then i removed the charger let the laptop on battery until suddenly the laptop shuts down without even telling me that the battery is low or even leaving some "emergency" charge on it (usually 7% or 5% i don't know)..I plugged it in to charge it again and open my leptop and i found out that the battery is not taking charge anymore!
I tried to see if the propblem is with the connector and tried to remove and put in again the charger and it ddid not work
i tried also to remove the battery and put it in again, it did not help
Now it is stuck on 2% of charge from 5 days and it's plugged in!
The laptop says that the battery is charging, but actually it is not charging and the charge level is the same from days
I looked up some solutions online like uninstalling ACPI microsof from Device manager and reboot the laptop..It did not work
"Jauge de batterie" which is an integrated software related to DELL, says that the battery health is good and that my battery is working properly
The laptop works fine with only the charger plugged in and battery out
PS: the laptop heats usually but i think it did not affect the battery at all since it was working fine and the charge took me about at minimum 30 min on high performance to be emptyed before this happens.
Please, i'm seeking for help
I hope you can ... Read more

Answer:Battery says: Charging, but it is not actually charging while plugged in and is stuck in 2% for 5 days !

First thing to check is wherther the sysetm recognizes the AC adapter - F2 at powerup to check that.
If it doesn't, try a new Dell OEM AC adapter - if that doesn't fix the issue, replace the DC jack board, and if that doesn't solve it, the mainboard.  Note:  you MUST use a Dell adapter - NOT a third party unit.
If the system DOES recognize the AC adapter, but won't charge the battery, chances are the battery is bad and will need to be replaced.
You cannot solve the issue without checking and, if necessary, replacing these parts.

Hi...

I am having a problem with my laptop computer. I figured out that my laptop, when being charged or using the Power Outlet, runs at 100% CPU at times, and slows me down when running and working on some open applications. At first I thought I had tons of spyware or even a virus, and even posted a Hijackthis file here. Nothing was found.
I figured out that my cpu runs at 100% when using the power outlet, or when my computer is chargnig. When I unplug the powercord and use the battery life, everything runs GREAT!!!!! my cpu drops to a normal 4-8% usage with multiple applications running. WEIRD huh? Can anyone relate to this ?? Is this and indication that my battery is going bad???? Can someone help me with this or suggest what is going on? I am running windows XP home edition, and have a compac presario 1500 series. Pent 4..

Running Windows 7 x64.One of my end users' T410 would say that it was charging, but the battery percentage would never change unless you unplugged it. Then it would get lower, but plugging it in would not recharge the battery. We tried putting her HD in a working T410, but the problem carried over. I ended up giving her a new laptop, but I would like to fix the errant T410 if at all possible. Since the problem carried over with the HD in a working T410, I figured it was a software issue.  Reinstalled Windows. No good.Did a wipe of the HD (everything 0's). Reinstalled Windows. No Good.Booted from Linux liveCD. Charging worked, but once I booted into a fresh copy of Windows, it stopped charging. So it seems that the hardware is capable of charging the battery, but not on a fresh copy of Windows: only Linux. Is there anything else I could try to get it working on Windows? Thank you for your time and have a great day.

Answer:T410 says "battery plugged in, charging" but not actually charging

Hi Hang,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
As you are facing the improper charging of battery , in that case you please need to perform the following steps and check  if the issue gets resolved.
 

Open Lenovo Energy Management
Click on the bottom gear icon between i and ?.
Under Battery Health, Click on Start for Battery Gauge Reset.
That should refresh the gauge and let the system finish through the cycle.

 
I hope the above information helps.
 
Regards,
Shashi

Hi,
I have a dell xps 12, bought in 2012. Recently the battery stopped charging. The battery shows 0%, so I have to be plugged in to turn the laptop on. When it is on, the battery icon on the task bar says "plugged in, charging" but after a day it is still 0%.
Since then I bought a new battery. Just fitted it, but now the battery icon on the task bar says "plugged in, not charging". Furthermore, when I Fn+F3 to show the battery meter, it says "battery charging diabled". There is no option here to turn battery charging on. Nor is there an option to enable battery charging in BIOS. 
BIOS does show battery performing normally, so does the battery meter (Fn+F3). BIOS also shows AC adapter as 45W, which is the original adapter.
Any help is appreciated!

Hi, I have an X220 Tablet that's about 3 and a half years old -- so unfortunately just out of warranty -- and I'm having battery/charging problems. A few months ago the original 6-cell battery that came with the laptop died: Power Manager reported it as dead and needing replacing. It had had 500-something cycles, so it seemed reasonable. I went ahead and bought a new 6-cell battery from Lenovo, the 67+, and then my system was fine again. But one day a few weeks ago this battery suddenly stopped charging. Power Manager reported that "The battery is in good condition", and it was reported as "Status: Charging", but it was not actually charging and was instead very slowly discharging its way to 0%. Something suspicious is perhaps that PM reported "Current: 0.00 A". I thought it might be the battery, so I got another one, but that has exactly the same issue -- now I have two batteries, each discharged completely and with no way to charge them. Charging doesn't happen regardless of whether the computer is on or off, or whether I'm in Windows (7) or Linux. I checked the AC adapter/charger with a multimeter and it is reporting 20V as it's supposed to, so I guess that's okay. Plus, the laptop runs fine on just the AC adapter, even if it's a little bit slower (which I gather is due to it being 65W rather than 90W). The only slightly unusual thing I can remember from the day charging stopped functioning is that I was using the 'always on' USB port to charge my ...

Answer:Battery not charging despite being reported as good and as charging

It is hard for me to be certain without seeing it, and Sweden is a long way from San Francisco. The symptom point to a blown fuse or power transistor (mosfet). Either can cause your problem, and usually require motherboard replacement. If nothing was going on when the problem started, (no power failure, lightning storm, failure of power adapter, tripping over the cord) I would guess mosfet. Some shops can repair fuses, but they require fairly good soldering equipment. I have had much poorer luck fixing mosfets, because usually, more than one chip is bad. You might be able to find a motherboard for a reasonable price. I have one for sale on eBay for under $100, but international shipping is expensive and you might do better locally.

I've had my HP Envy laptop for about 3 months, and yesterday I noticed that when it was plugged in it wasn't charging (the battery icon says "plugged in, not charging"). I turned it off overnight, plugged in, and this morning the battery was fully charged. It only seems to not charge when it is turned on. I have tried removing the battery, turning on, deleting the ACPI-compliant control method battery, turning off, and turning back on again (as advised in other forum responses), but with no joy. At first I thought it could either be a battery issue, but the fact it fully charged overnight whilst off would lead me to believe it's not, and is probably a software / settings issue. Any ideas please, I've run out of google search ideas!!

Hi guys, I ran into this problem a few days ago where the laptop is plugged in, it says its charging, but the battery % won't go up at all. It started around 16% and each time I unplugged it for whatever reason it would go down but when I would plug it back in it wouldn't charge it back up. So now I'm at 8% and afraid to unplug it again.  I have the Energy Management set to Balanced, Maximum Battery Life, and it's status is "Charging" and "Good". Any help is appreciated, thank you guys.

Answer:Y510P "plugged in, charging" but battery is not charging

hi kanyewest,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try the following:
1. While having the battery and AC adapter plugged-in, boot into the BIOS (by pressing F2) and unplug the AC adapter until the system shuts off (this is to compete the discharge the battery).
 
2. Once the machine shuts down, remove and reinsert the battery and plugin the AC adapter then let the battery charge for about 2hrs while the machine is off and observe the battery lifght indicator. After 2hrs, power up the machine and observe the battery percentage.
     - Link to picture
 
If the battery is stucked at 0%, I recommend you contact lenovo and report your findings as the battery may need to be replaced.

The original charger of lumia 640 is 750 mAh and for lumia 535 it's 550 mAh. It takes about 4 hour for my lumia 535 to get fully charged using its own charger, Is it normal? I already tried hard reset but nothing changed. I think If I use lumia 535 charger, It will be charged faster. Is it true and safe to use?
anyone has suggestion for a good and faster charger?
Thanks

Answer:Is it harmful for phone or battery if I use the original charger of lumia 640 4 charging lumia 535?

Using a charger with more mA capabilities will assist your phone in charging faster. There are times that it can also reduce your overall battery life, which shouldn't be a problem if you plan on replacing the phone in 2 years.
There are smart chargers which will detect what your phone can handle and deliver the most optimal charging current for your device. I find for my Lumia 640, I can get a much faster and a safe charge as high as 1200mA. My 520 came with the lower mA as well, but it charged fine with the 750mA charger with no ill effects that I am aware of.

Need Help!

The problem started from June 2, 2015 about 4 AM (UTC +8:00 Philippine, Manila)

I open my Notebook that morning to check on my e-mails and bills at gmail but it's not powering up. At first I thought that the battery was slightly drained because I saw my sister still using it at midnight. I asked her if she did not plugged in the charger when it is nearly drained but she said she plugged it and it is still full when she shut it down.

It is Li-ion Battery

I tried plugging in the charger to check whether it still has remaining battery. It powered up.
On the taskbar/notifications/running apps it says 8% Available (Plugged In, Charging).
So to check out the problem, I left it turned off charging for about two hours.

Then after two hours it still says 8% Available (Plugged In, Charging)
What the hell is this?! I asked my self.
I installed an app to check the status of the battery (Battery Bar)
Battery Bar says something like this:
Capacity: 2K of 8K mWh (not sure about this)
Charging: 0 mW
Running on AC
7.9% Available
Something like that.

Summary Notes:
1. Does not power up without Charger
2. It detects the Battery saying 8% Available (Plugged In, Charging)
3. Though Plugged In, Charging it does not charge at all because of 0 mW charge rate
4. It turns off when the Charger is plugged out.
5. It still run even without the Battery (when the Charger was plugged in of course, then a red x mark shows in the notification taskbar battery icon)

Answer:G50-70 Battery says "Plugged in, Charging" but not charging

Hi Mistwild82,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with battery plugged in charging in your Lenovo Y50-70 laptop.
 
 Please try to perform the gauge reset, under power manager select maintenance guide and select gauge reset and check for the issue.
 
Also try to uninstall the Microsoft ACPI driver, uninstall the drivers under ACPI and restart the system and check for the issue.
 
Also shut down the system and try to charge the system for 1 or 2 hours and check if the charging percentage has increased. If the charging percentage has increased in Linux then it?s a issue with operating system please reinstall the operating system and check for the issue.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!
 
Best regards,

Answer:G50-70 says "battery plugged in, charging" but not actually charging

Hello,
 
I have read a few other similar posts but none of their solutions worked on my laptop.  The battery percentage stays the same when plugged into the charger.  I first noticed the issue this morning when I powered the laptop on and the percentage was at 44% with the charger plugged in overnight, and it was at 44% when I plugged the charger in last night.  I only put the battery in the laptop a couple days during the week when I'm in school, otherwise I just leave it out and have it powered through the adapter.  The laptop is 7 months old.
 
I tried the Gauge Reset for 8 hours today and it wasn't doing anything so I cancelled it.   I have reinstalled the Energy Management software.  I have also tried shutting it down for 20 minutes and charging it at a different wall outlet.
 
What else can I do?
 
Thank you
 
 
Edit:
******Solution******
 
I just tried this from another post and it worked!  Battery is charging again.
 
a. turn off the computer and remove the battery and AC adapter.
b. press and hold the power button for 30 secs and reconnect the AC adapter
c. turn ON the computer and continuously tap F2 to boot into the BIOS, when you're in, press F9 to load defaults and press F10 to save and exit.
d. boot into Windows (while still having just the AC adapter plugged-in) then reinsert the battery.

The manufacturer contends this battery will work on any T40 and the manual indicates that either 6 cell or 9 cell can be used... The only abnormal indication so far is that when I asked  the Lenovo site to automatically identify the specs of my T40, it listed  a 9 cell battery instead of a 6 cell one.   Does that tell us anything about what might be wrong?  with respect to the suggestions on the regular lenovo site, I already did all  that I could do  including sending the first replacement battery back to the manufacturer who then sent a second one to me.  I couldn't upgrade the battery controller because that first required an upgrade of the Bios and I can't do the Bios upgrade without a fully charged battery.  Thanks very much for any help.

I have the latest Bios installed but laptop will not chage via usb c using anything but HP charger. Is the a setting in Bios or something I can do to use one of my other type c chargers?thankstom

Answer:charging via usb c using non HP charger

wingman1800 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! The problem is, if you use a non-HP charger and that damages the PC in any way, you have blown the warranty -- and the total cost of repairs will fall on you. You really want this to happen? If you remember the problems with the Samsung Note7 exploding, ALL the instances of that happening (at least in the beginning) were due to non-Samsung chargers. The problem with USB-C is that it can deliver a LOT of power to the device, which is SUPPOSED to be regulated so the device does not overheat, but chargers that don't adhere properly to the USB-C standard can easily overheat your device. So, you're risking destroying your device in order to save a little money.

Question: X220 Not Charging

So, it's nearly 3 years old and has been bashed around quite a bit, but this is the only problem that just keeps reoccuring. So, here it is: The laptop will not charge at all. Not awake, sleeping, or completely off. Before all this, I lost the original charger and bought a crappy replacement (ReTrak). The replacement charger has a L-shaped connector that seemed to damage the DC connector jack. Either by pushing it in to far or too much pressure against the sides. So, I replaced the DC jack, but it did nothing. Then, I changed the battery and it was finally charging! Slower than I remember, but it charging and that's all I cared about. Then, slowly, it would stop charging while awake, then stopped while sleeping. It only stays on when the connector is inserted and the laptop powered on. I replaced the DC jack again, and still no improvement. Same symptoms when I have the battery disconnected and the power connector inserted.  I've tried other chargers, but no improvement. Then tried the software route. Updated the bios and battery firmware. This is where it gets a little wieird. Before the updates my battery was less than 10%, then after it jumped to above 95%. It didn't seem like a full charge though and discharged faster than expected (still lasted for a couple hours, i think). I've updated the PowerVantage software, and nothing. What say you good folks? PS I bought all genuine Lenovo parts (from sketchy folks on ebay)

I purchased a HP Pavilion x2-10-n113dx refurbished from Groupon in April 2016. This tablet stopped recognizing a charger when it's plugged in to the device. Is this the charging port itself or the charger causing this issue.  I only have about 25% battery life left on the device.

My Samsung laptop charger has the light coming on however it is not charging, the charger is heating up so is this the charger or the laptop? have ordered another charger from coywood.co.uk as they had universal one's and i rang a couple of local computer shops but these wanted £65 to even look at it so advice would be welcome incase this does not work?
 

Answer:Charger Light On, Not Charging?

Hi

first off dont use anything but an official charger, the cheap ones can and will damage your motherboard due to them being unregulated and supplying to much current.

If the charger has the light on but wont charge then the internal cable is broken and may be shorting out inside the sleeving.

check the cable by eye for severe kinks or bends in the cable.

Should you find one, cut the section just before and after the kink and then strip the cable back and join the wires and test it, if it works then you can either solder the wires and use heat shrink plastic to join them or buy a new one.

Hello, this is urgent. This just happened a while ago. I was playing a game here on my laptop and it was under 20% battery life, as I continued to play when it was plugged in. And all of a sudden I hear a spark and then my laptop shut down unexpectedly, and I immediately unplugged it and tried turning it on but it wouldn't turn on for a few minutes. Afterwards everything was normal, but as I plugged the charger back in the light indicator on the side of my laptop wont lit up anymore.So I'm not sure if it's my laptop or the charger is broken. Please help.

Early today I kicked my charger and it unplugged while walking out of my room. I was leaving and I was going to be back in a little bit. So I didn't think anything of it. I came back 30 minutes later and my computer was off. I know my computer wouldn't have died that fast. So I plugged it back in and noticed it wasn't charging. So I unplugged the charger from the actual computer and it shut off my computer. I've tried multiple times and it keeps happening. I also noticed my laptop is running faster and louder ever since it happened. This also happened a few weeks ago when my dog hit the cord and it wasn't charging. But I put the cord back in and it started working just fine. I've already tried doing a few things people recommended online, like the following: >Disconnect AC>Shutdown>Remove battery>Connect AC>Startup>In Device Manager, Under the Batteries category, right-click all of the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listings, and select Uninstall (it?s ok if you only have 1).>Shutdown>Disconnect AC>Insert battery>Connect AC>StartupBut this didn't work for me and after I restarted my computer a second time. The ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery ended up coming back. Any suggestions on what could be the problem?

Hello,
I like my SP4 and am using it primarily for my astronomy hobby that takes me to dark and cold places where I have to carry my own electrical power. After much search I chose and bought a car charger designed for the SP4. It's rating matches that of the brick that comes with SP4: 12v, 2.58A. But when I hook it up to my portable power source which is a 12v 35Ah deep cycle AGM battery, the charger only pulls about 1.6 amps and pretty much just keeps the SP alive - it does not charge.
I am not sure if the label on the charger simply means it can handle 2.58 amps or it falsely claims that it can pull and provide to the SP4 the 2.58 amp current that it needs.
My main question here is about the role that the computer plays in charging of its battery. Is it possible that the computer is simply not pulling enough?
As opposed to voltage which is pushed into a machine, current is something that the using and needing machine pulls from a source. So a charger, car charger or the brick, seem to play a role as a bridge. Ultimately the computer is the one that is inhaling the amperage from the brick and from the char charger. So if the car charger doesn't have the ability to satisfy the need of the computer then IT suffers and maybe gets damaged because of over-pulling by a commuter desperate for the current? Or is it possible that the computer just doesn't like the non-native power sourc and is programmed to pull in less just to be on the safe side?
I want to look for and find a more... Read more

If the jack on the computer where the charger plugs into is loose, then you need to have the jack soldered back onto the motherboard by a local computer repair shop.

ASUS G75VW-DS71 LapTop, 64 bit OS, Win7
I noted posts as long ago as 2002 re same issue. Here it is...
My tray battery readout says "96% available (plugged in, not charging)". I bought a new battery, and it showed "100% available (plugged in, charging)". For about 2 days.
Then it showed "96% available (plugged in, not charging)". I thought 'faulty battery', and exchanged it again.
While waiting I placed the original battery into the laptop, and it showed "96% available (plugged in, and charging)". After 2 days it returned to "96% available (plugged in, not charging)".
The new replacement battery arrived. It showed 100% available, charging for 2-3 days, then reverted to 97%, not charging.
Oh... once it gets to the "not charging" point, the laptop battery light flashes orange continually.
Is this a problem? Or, should I just ignore it? I like things to work 'right', so any input would be welcome.
Thanks.
 

Answer:Battery charging / not charging

Can you run it on the battery or is it left plugged in all the time?
I have a lenovo laptop at work that is left plugged in most of the time, always shows 97%, but does work if I unplug the charger.

I tried using the registry hack in Windows 8 to stop my battery charging higher than 95%, and was sucesful. however this has also had the effect of meaning that when I plug the charger in when the laptop is on, it says "plugged in, not charging". If I turn the laptop off, or put it into Standby, then plug the charger in, it starts charging fine and continues to do so after turning it back on. I have tried re-installing Windows 8.1 (and not installed any of the power management drivers) incase it was a driver problem, however this has not fixed it. If there is some way to completly reset the battery controller (i'm not sure if the chip that does this is in the battery of laptop) then I would be very glad to know.

I've had my i7 X220 for about 4 months now - using it every day, loving it.  Today I had quite a scare ... All of a sudden I got the low battery warning ... yikes, it was plugged in!  Checked all my connections, tried a different outlet, removed and reinserted the battery.  Still no charge.  I had everything backed up, but what a pain - I especially need this laptop for next week's travels and photo-editing.  Waited an hour - tried again - voila!  It's charging again.  My question - is there something in the Power Manager that disables battery charger if the computer gets too warm?  I didn't experience any problems, but I was running a lot of programs simultaneously, and I noticed both the charger and laptop were warmer than usual.  I promptly ordered a spare battery and a spare AC adapter, but just curious if there might be something else going on.  It has passed all the diagnostics and has been working okay for the last 4 hours.

I worked with a technician on here (you can see what went on there here: Rogue virus and browser-redirecting malware (DDS, Attach, and Ark included) ) and during that time is when we realized that the updates were not working and that was also the time that my charger stopped working. When I attempt to update, I received a message that says, "An error occurred while checking for new updates for your computer. Error(s) found: Code 80096001"

[Charger is working fine] if it was working fine the light on it would not turn off. Even though it does light it does not mean the charger is working. Maybe try plugging it into a different socket.

Answer:Laptop charger plugged in but not charging

Esmmy, look in the hole on your laptop where the power adapter would plug in and you'll see the silver power pin. Using a push button pen, put it on the end of the power pin and see if you can move the pin at all. Any movement on that pin means it's broken and the DC Jack needs to be replaced. Most DC Jacks are soldered to the motherboard and need to be repaired by someone experienced in desoldering and soldering.

If the DC Jack is broken, the power adapter won't charge your battery since it's not making a solid connection inside. Moving it around too much while plugged in could short something, cause further damage or even a fire.. Best to have it repaired by an experienced technician.

For a while my nokia started to show that it is under charging while not connected to any charger. The problem is, that i.e. it is 63% charged when this happens the phone thinks about itself it forever. If I plug onto the charger it does not react, because "it is already under charging". The only option for me to switch off the phone and restart, but after a while this happens again and again.
I already replaced the battery once (of course I did a hard reset before, because I had suspected a system failure, but it did not help), and for 3 weeks it worked normally. Now it started again with the new battery.

Answer:Why does it shows it is charging while not connected to a charger?

Honestly, it doesn't sound like a battery issue. It sounds like a hardware problem with the charging circuitry in the phone. Could also be a problem with the USB connector on the phone, but it's hard to tell without a thorough physical inspection.
If it is still under warranty, I'd recommend taking it in for service. If not, and you want to continue using the phone, you may need to pay for service repair on the phone. The other option is to pick up a new phone, as this one may be on the way out if it isn't fixed.
Like I said, it's hard to tell without a thorough physical inspection, so take what I say here with a grain of salt, and best of luck.

when charger plugged in computer detects charger and shows the icon on the battery icon
computer detects battery and how much of a charge it has
but it states charger plugged in but not charging
the ONLY WAY I CAN GET CHARGER TO WORK AND CHARGE IS TO TAKE THE BATTERY OUT AND PUT BACK IN

CAN ANYONE GIVE ME A CLUE TO WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY COMPUTER

THANK YOU FOR ANY INFO YOU CAN OFFER~BMS

 

Answer:Charger plugged in, not charging toshiba

If you take out the battery when the computer is totally shut down, and plug in the AC adapter and start the computer, does the light on the charger come on, some are green, some not....

And, does the computer work normally if you are using just the AC adapter?

I would not use a battery that charged only to anything but 100% and here is why> overheating can result and cause a fire, I have had one laptop battery explode and it is not a pretty scene.

The AC adapter might also be damaged, but just answer the questions and will try to help further. I buy this type of Toshiba adapter all the time, and can point you to some reliable but not over expensive ones.
