Lenovo Flex 3-1120 Plugged in, not charging

Question: Lenovo Flex 3-1120 Plugged in, not charging

My battery was charging fine and then I clicked on the battery icon today to open up and the menu and it went from telling me the battery was plugged in and charging to plugged in and not charging. It was like clicking the icon turned off the charging capability. This is a brand new computer, I've only had it for a couple weeks. The battery and adapater are both okay according to OneKey Optimizer, so I can't figure out why it's not charging. Currently running Windows 10 if that helps.

Preferred Solution: Lenovo Flex 3-1120 Plugged in, not charging

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Lenovo Flex 3-1120 Plugged in, not charging

Does your battery stay at about 60%? If so, then there actually is no problem. Lenovo Flex 3 has a feature called "Conservation Mode," which keeps the battery from charging all the way. This will supposedly increase the lifespan of the battery, which is a good thing, since the battery isn't meant to be replaced. If you want to charge the battery normally, just click on the battery guage on the taskbar. You'll find the setting there.

Could anyone please advise a solution: my Lenovo Flex 2-14 (Windows 8) is suddenly showing "plugged in, not charging" message. It is completely impossible to use it if it is not plugged in, as soon as you unplug it just goes dead. I have already tried the uninstall Microsoft AC Adapter way and it didn't help. Has anyone else had this exact issue? Thank you!

Answer:plugged in, not charging - Lenovo Flex 2-14

Hey, have you tried this -
1) Shut down the laptop and unplug the power supply
2) Press the power button for 40 seconds
3) Reconnect and start the laptop
 
Have you tried doing the "Battery Guage Reset" functionality?

Hi, i bought my lenovo flex 3 14inch laptop in microsoft store in january 2016. i have my first problem just in 4 months i.e. my laptop didn't start after shutdown it went to hibernate mode and didn't wakeup. i have sent it to lenovo and got back after 15 days. later i came up with same issue in december 2016 and i didn't use my laptop upto january 2017 and upgraded my warranty to onsite repair for 1 more year because i lost hope on lenovo and i'm pertty much confidant that this laptop will not sustain for a month or 2 after this repair. The motherboard was replaced with a technician who doesn't know how to go to BIOS settings.Now i got a new issue i.e.  "plugged-in not charging problem". I thought it was new problem but later got to know that it is on going problem of all the flex 3 laptops. I tried different steps but no use and finally called lenovo support. The technician tried for long 2 hours installing lenovo settings app from microsoft store but unfortunately it didn't worked out (LOL !!! LENOVO APPLICATION DOESN'T WORK IN LENOVO LAPTOP).

I have a Lenovo Flex 3 1480 with Intel I7.  I was getting a message that says "plugged in charging" but the battery charge was staying at 60% and not increasing. Lenovo techs said the battery must be bad so I ordered and installed a new, Lenovo brand battery.  I get the same condition... placing the cursor over the battery symbol gives a status message of "40% available, plugged in, charging" but the battery charge never increases, even after shutting off the computer down and leaving it plugged in overnight. The laptop was a year old and therefore out of warranty last November, 2016. HELP!

I recently updated to the Windwos 10 Fall Creators update (Build 1709, 16299.125), and as soon as I updated, the graphics driver failed and switched to the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter. I tried updating and rolling back the driver without success. My driver right now is at the latest version (10.18.10.4358).

Hi everyone! I have a Flex 2-14. I had upgraded from Windows 8.1 to 10. After that my battery is no more charging. Message is "plugged in, not charging".  I had tried:- Lenovo Energy Management --> change the setting from Optimized Battery Health , to Maximum Battery Life  - Lenovo OneKey Optimiser --> change the setting from Conservation Mode to Normal Mode- reverted to Windows 8.1 OneKey Optimiser reports: Battery status is good; Battery capacity is good; Adapter status is good.Battery does not charge even when notebook is stopped but plugged to mains. Now battery is at 0%. Maybe related to this: i can't upgrade BIOS. Now the bios is A0CN21WW.Downloaded A0CN37WW. Extracted files. Removed /cpb 30 from winflash64.bat (in order to remove battery check). Run Install.exe from c:\BIOS\A0CN37WW. Notebook shutdown, remains 2-3 minutes with black screen, and then reboots but the bios remains the same A0CN21WW. Could be a faulty BIOS? How can i force update it? Thanks for any suggestion.

 For the past week or so when I have my computer plugged in always remains "plugged in, not charging", but keeps maintains life when plugged in.

Hello,  I have a two year old Ideapad Flex 14 which is having some battery issues. Specifically, the battery light is flashing red, and when I plug in my laptop, the status says ?plugged in, not charging.? When plugged in, it stays at roughly the same battery level, though it has been gradually losing battery despite being plugged in over the last few days (this has been going on for five days or so now).  It is at 5% battery now, and I?m not sure what to do to make it charge. I?ve tried taking out the battery and putting it back multiple times, but am not really sure what else to try ? I?m out of the country until December, so I haven?t been able to find a repair place to get it fixed yet...  Any suggestions how to fix this?? Annie

About three days ago my Flex 3 1480 stopped charging its battery. This message appears above the taskbar battery icon:  ?0% available - plugged in, charging."  The computer now only comes on with the ac power adapter plugged in. I have used another adapter (identical specs) with the same negative result on my computer.  My adapter works fine on the other computer. These are fixes recommended at various internet sites that I have tried without success: System restore to a point several days before problem appeared.Uninstalled both battery drivers in Device Manager and restart reinstalled - three times. The battery is internal so I would like to fix without having to remove the battery if possible. Resetting the battery and resetting the bios are on-line recommendations that I don?t really know how to do safely. In searching the Lenovo site, I have been unable to find this problem addressed. The Lenovo Vantage Hardware Scan shows all in good order ? the battery itself is rated Good. The Flex 3 is 2 years old and is now out of warranty. Any help to correct and get the battery charging would be appreciated. Thank you, GB

I have the flex 2 and the only time my laptop charges is when it is completely turned off. The battery life is also very short, even when I am using my laptop it says "plugged in, charging" but the battery life continues to go down, it only lasts about an hour or two WHILE BEING PLUGGED IN. And it takes a couple hours to fully charge when i have it turned off, i usually plug it in at night and in the morning it will be a full charge. I have only had this laptop about 4 months, it is not old, and I have not been over using it. Everything else functions perfectly fine on it and i love it, but this is a huge problem when i am trying to get school work done. this has been going on a few weeks now. Why is this happening is there something i can do to fix it?

I've had my Lenovo Flex 2-15 for about two years and it has always charged perfectly fine. Today it started telling me that the computer is "plugged in, not charging". It was working normally as of this morning (took it to class and then recharged it afterward), but as of this evening it's not charging.
 
I have tried multiple solutions:
 

Restarting
Uninstalling and reinstalling / updating battery drivers
Checking power management options (no problems there)

I am not able to remove the battery as the Flex doesn't allow me to do so. It's currently at 94%, and I'm afraid to run it all the way down because it looks like it won't charge back up again.
 
If anyone has any advice, it would be very welcome. Thanks!

Answer:Flex 3 -1120 wont power on

I had the same issue. it appears that a driver was installed but the system has stalled. It actually happened twice. I sent it in and they "refreshed" it and it did it again. I let the power die on it and it started back up. I don't know of a way to manually shut it down. The old way was take the battery out but its not the case here. The battery is sealed in side and I didn't want to give them a reason to void the warranty. You can charge stuff with the usb while it's unplugged, try draining the battery that way with a phone or tablet.

I have a Lenovo Flex 3 1120. When I bought it, I went for the hard drive option that had the cheapest price since all the other options were HDD of various sizes and I knew I was going to upgrade to SSD anyway. The flex 3 I have though, does not have a HDD and uses an eMMC embedded storage. When I went to install the SSD, there is an empty space for where the hard drive would sit and there is no SATA connection. There is a socket in the board that is labeled "SATA conn1" but no cable.
 
I called support and was told it is possible to use the SSD and boot from it. The cable and caddy can be purchased but she said Lenovo will not supply the part. I found the part number I think,  1109-01051, but apparently no one else sells it either. There was one on ebay, but it's gone. anyone know where I can find one?

Recently, when I started playing Metal Gear Solid 5 and Battlefield 1, I have been facing some issues with the battery. I usually keep the charger plugged in while gaming, Since the laptop needs to be plugged in for better performance.  But recently, my laptop automatically stops charging randomly in between eventhough it is connected and the power button and the charging led start blinking.  As soon as i unplug the charger and put it back on, it starts charging again. But after sometime again stops charging and lights start blinking. I've noticed that this happens faster when I'm playing a game vs. when I'm doing something else.

I just bought a new Lenovo G50 about a month ago. The only strange problem I have picked up in the last 2 weeks, is that even when my notebook is NOT plugged into the charger, it still indicates that it is charging from an incompatible power source. Where my previous notebook, warned me on 10% battery left, my new Lenovo does not, because it is under the impression that it is 'Charging'.The battery life is not really affected and when plugged in, it charges the battery normally.Can anyone help me with a solution, before I take it back to my supplier. I know simple fixes like this can take up to WEEKS if I have to take it in. Thank you in advanced.

Answer:Lenovo G50 NOT plugged in, but 'charging'.

hi dentonbronkhors,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Can you try these steps:
 
  Open Device Manager and look Under Batteries, Right click and uninstall the item Named Microsoft SCPI compliant control method battery.
  Shut the computer down instead of doing a restart like the computer ask.
  Now Remove the Battery and Unplug the Ac adapter, Hold the poer button down for at least 10 sec.
  Turn the computer back on and See if that resolves the issue.
 
Let us know your findings
Cheers!

Answer:Lenovo G50-70 Windows 10 plugged in not charging

Hi acejavier10 , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Initially , in such issue first to try is remove microsoft acpi-compliant control method battery .
 
Try uninstalling Energy Management and shutdown the pc,  unplug the ac charger and remove the battery . 
Without battery and charger , press down the power button for 15 seconds to drain remaining power. 
 
Place back the battery and charger and use the Novo button (Item 2 page 9 left side) to turn on pc. 
Novo screen should appear offering BIOS set up . F9 to load defaults , F10 to save and exit. 
 
Without the Energy manager , restart the pc and check .
You may reinstall it back from the support site under power management.
 
You can review the power checkout step guide provided here (page21-22) .
 
Update us how things go.
 
 
Regards

Hello everyone, everything was fine until recently when I used the battery gauge reset in the energy management program and now my battery is sitting at 0% while it says plugged in, charging. Is there any way to fix this or will I have to get a new battery? I'm still on warranty and does Lenovo's warranty cover battery replacements?

Answer:Lenovo Y510P 0% plugged in, charging?

Defective battery. Return it to Lenovo for a replacement if your unit is still under warranty.

Answer:Lenovo G50-70 plugged in but not charging on windows 10

Hi rohitreddy77,
 
Thanks for Posting!
 
Try resetting the Battery gauge meter.
Turn OFF the computer and unplug the AC adapter.
Press the Novo or OKR Button to boot up with options.
Select Set up utility or Enter Setup
  You should arrive at a page like this

 
Now Stay on this screen without the AC adapter plugged in until the computer shuts off itself due to power loss.
This will drain the battery to zero (May take couple of hours)
 
Now Plug in the AC and charge it till 100% and it should be good to go.
 
Regards
Solid Cruver

My Lenovo G700, which is a week old, is saying that it is "plugged in, not charging". It was working fine until last night when I closed the lid to put it into sleep mode for the first time. I have checked that it is set to maximum battery life and it is still not working. It's stuck on 98%. I am severely disappointed that something like this has happened a week into having my first Lenovo. I hope someone can help me rectify this problem.

Answer:Lenovo G700 Plugged In Not Charging

hi Zadeth,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try to:
1. Turn off the machine and remove the AC adapter and battery
2. Hold the power button for 10secs then plug the AC adapter back in.
3. Turn the computer ON and when it gets to Windows, slide the battery back in place and observe the charge.
 
Alternatively, try to use the battery charge until it asks you to plug the AC adapter and observe if the charge goes all the way to 100%.
 
Let me know your findings
 
 
Regards

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad with "plugged in, not charging"

What charging threshold do you have set in either Lenovo companion or Lenovo Vantage app?  For me I have it set at 70% and 80%.  In other words my battery wont charge until it falls below 70% and it will stop at 80%.  So if its at 75% for example it will show "plugged in, not charging"

Okay, so my keyboard dock works fine. I restarted it once (paperclip method) after dying on me, but afterwards nothing was really wrong with it. Now, the tablet's battery is acting funny. At first, I thought it was just my keyboard dock not charging my tablet, so I detatched the keyboard, and the tablet completely shut off. I plugged the AC adapter into the tablet, and it came back to life, but it would not charge at all. The keyboard dock would be at 100%, but the tablet itself would only be at 8%. I have installed the Lenovo Dependency Package thing and the firmware update, but it didn't change anything. Now, even though it says (plugged in, charging) on my tablet, it's not really charging. So, whenever I unplug the tablet or detatch the tablet from the keyboard dock, the system completely turns off because it's only at 8%. Please help me! Thank you!  EDIT: Okay, so I unplugged the AC adapter while the keyboard dock was on and then Battery #1, the tablet battery, drained down to 0%, and its status is now Plugged in, not charging, while Battery #2 is plugged in, charging. I also got a pop up notification saying there's an error in battery #1, see replacement options. I clicked it, but it was a dead browser link.Also, when I go to the Support app, it says under messages that my battery is not valid... but I don't know how that happened. I've only had my Helix for about 2 months now.

Hi!My Yoga 500-15ISK Laptop seems to have a battery issue. For some time now, whenever I plug my laptop into the AC power, I get this message, e.g. "(% charge) available, (plugged in, charging)", however for some reason, the battery level actually stays the same even after a significant amount of time of being plugged in to the AC supply. Moreover, the battery icon initially shows the animated one which indicates charging is indeed in progress, then after a few moments, it will freeze on the estimated level.Before this, my laptop's battery usually charges relatively quickly. Also, I have not turned on the Conservation Mode so it must charged up beyond 50-60% especially if I leave it plugged in overnight. This issue is really bewildering me right now. Any comments or suggestions on how I can address this issue?Thanks!Other notes re my laptop:It's been around 10 months since I've bought it and I have encountered this issue only a few days ago.I have no other issues with it.

Hello, I noticed this afternoon that the battery indicator in the system tray was at less than full and the status message reads "95% - Plugged in, not charging." This was not the case previously, and I haven't changed any battery or system settings that would affect this. I've only owned the computer for about a month or two and I'm concerned that there may be a problem with the battery. I looked up this issue online and attempted to uninstall and reinstall the driver that affects battery control in System Settings, but there was no change to this behaviour. Is there a way to test if the battery is damaged? What other problems could I be having that would produce this effect?

It sometimes charges when I let the laptop in sleep mode or close the lid. I sometimes get a full charge but then, when I'm using it, it just stops charging for no reason. To "force charge" it, I discovered that if I first unplug the charger from the laptop itself, then disconnect the cable from the power brick, plug it back in the laptop and connect the brick back again, it seems to charge for around 4 more minutes. I tried updateing the BIOS with the support from the official Lenovo support site (this one) but it does not work. I heard about the removing the battery and pressing the power button but I can't remove the battery.  The power brick and charger are original and seem to work fine. Should I try buying another charger? Please resond to this as I'm desperate. Thanks much !

Hi Mina,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
1)  Shut down the computer.
2)  With the battery in (but AC adapter removed), attempt to turn on the computer by holding down the power button for 30 sec. This should not turn on the computer.
3)  Remove the battery.
4)  Again, attempt to turn on the computer (AC adapter not plugged in) by holding down the power button for 30 sec.  This should not turn on the computer either.
5)  Replace battery, plug in the AC adapter, and turn on the computer.  The battery should begin charging.
 
I hope the above information helps.

Hi AhmedMagdyy,Have checked in Lenovo Settings app if Conservation Mode is enabled. Conversation mode is under the battery icon of the app. If enabled, kindly disable the feature. Conservation mode helps extend the battery life of the tablet/laptop by limiting the max charge the battery can hold. Hope this helps.Cheers,

Hi,

I have a Lenovo Z50-70 running Windows 8.1. The laptop is relatively new, bought in Jan. 2015.

Some time ago, the original battery suddenly started to have a problem where it would say 45% available, plugged in, not charging. No matter what fixes I tried (after looking through a lot of articles, posts, comments, etc.), nothing made the battery start charging again. It always stays at 45%. Also the battery light/indicator on the front of the laptop is always blinking white.

So I got a new battery, put it in hoping that it would work and charge up to 100%, but the new battery is having exactly the same problem as the original old one! It will only charge up to 45%, then it says plugged in not charging. The battery light is again always blinking white.

What do I do? How can this be fixed? What's going on?

Appreciate any help. Thank you very much.

check the warranty is still active, as thats one route you could take with a relatively new laptop.

also, try uninstalling the energy management and restart the system and check for the issue. also try uninstalling the Microsoft ACPI from the device manager and restart the system and check for the issue. for more info on this action see this thread in the link:

Hi iperich,
 
Thanks for posting in the Lenovo Community,

If the charger is working fine let me ask you to try to uninstall the Lenovo energy management application and then try to refresh the system and then try to install the software back again and then  check the battery icon status,
 
Hope the information helps. Let us know.

Hi everyone, I have Lenovo Yoga 710-14IKB 80V4001LAX model notebook. I bought it around 3 weeks ago. Everything was perfect until today. Today I noticed that the device is not charging. I made a research on the internet and saw that in many model of Lenovo there is this problem. - The conservation mode was closed all the time. So it is not that. Please check the screenshot.- I turned off the notebook, removed the cables and press the opening button for 30 seconds, and then plugged the cables in and restarted but no change.- Updated bios and no change.- No reached to battery as it is sealed. I am really disappointed and don't know what to do. I appreciate your help. Thanks in advance.

Answer:lenovo z500 charger is plugged in but not charging

When this has happened to me with my laptops, it meant a hardware problem. Either the adapter is broken or the power jack is broken inside your laptop, or had been bent off. You can try to solder a replacement back on the motherboard if your laptop isn't under warranty. Or take it to a repair shop if that isn't too expensive. Either way, I don't think downloading anything is going to help you.

as i see, this is a common problem for lenovo users, and maybe lenovo should really adress this. my laptop worked fine until, i guess, i installed some new windows updates, and now the battery won't charge baterry is on 0%, or 1%, and it says - plugged in, not charging now i've been reading and googleing this problem for the past two days, and not one of the solutions presented to me worked. not even youtube videos that have over 250 000 views. now lenovo, if 250 000 people have this problem, maybe it's something that you should fix  please help, fix this thx

Answer:Lenovo G580 battery shows - plugged in not charging

Hi Mayank,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G580 Laptop is displaying message ?plugged in, not charging? while trying to charge. Hence I suggest you to perform Flee-Power and check if the issue persists.
 

Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer.
Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.
Then insert the battery when the computer is turned ON.
If the issue persists, please perform ?Battery Gauge Reset? after installing LEM (Lenovo Energy Management) in the computer.

 Do post us back if the issue still persists.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Hi I own a Lenovo G560 with an Intel Pentium CPU. I upgraded to Windows 10, and it worked fine for about a year. After I deleted a few viruses and a few garbage programs off the machine, the battery refused to charge past 87%. I have heard to check Lenovo Power Manager, but there is no such software on the system. Is there any other solution I could try?

Hey Community, I'm in dire need for help, my lenovo Y50-70 has been working fine for the past 3 years now and JUST after the warrenty is up, my battery becomes funky. I noticed that whenever I load up a game, the charger becomes unrecognized and instead of regular led lights, i get one blinking white light and one blinking orange light. When I remove the AC adapter and plug it back in, it'll recognize the charger and ocasionally it'll take some time to recognize it. It stops charging when the LED lights begin to blink. I've tried to1. "remove the static" or drain the battery by unplugging the AC adapter2. holding down the power button for 30 seconds (I didnt remove the battery because it's not a removable battery, Should I?).3. Changed the power settings to high performance and no conservation of power.4. I bought a new adapter and it's still happening, I have no idea what to do. Intially prior of buying a new adapter it drained and I couldnt figure out a way to get it to charge. With the new adapter I was able to charge it till full, but when I have it on, it does the same thing.  Please help me community, you kind souls. Best,Richard

Hi,I have a Lenovo Z50-70 running Windows 8.1. The laptop is relatively new, bought in Jan. 2015.Some time ago, the original battery suddenly started to have a problem where it would say 45% available, plugged in, not charging. No matter what fixes I tried (after looking through a lot of articles, posts, comments, etc.), nothing made the battery start charging again. It always stays at 45%. Also the battery light/indicator on the front of the laptop is always blinking white.So I got a new battery, put it in hoping that it would work and charge up to 100%, but the new battery is having exactly the same problem as the original old one! It will only charge up to 45%, then it says plugged in not charging. The battery light is again always blinking white.What do I do? How can this be fixed? What's going on?Appreciate any help. Thank you very much.

Answer:Lenovo Z50-70 battery plugged in not charging, won't charge no matter what I do

Sounds like it may be either the charger or the charging port at fault here.  However, I have a couple of questions...1. Does the battery charge increase at all if you leave the machine turned off and plugged in, or does it still report 45%?2. Does it power on when only on battery power?3. Was the new battery a new, genuine Lenovo part?There seem to be a lot of people reporting similar issues with this model unfortunately.
