New L520 battery not charging?



Hi All, 

 

My L520 is only about a month old but within the last week  I noticed when the AC Adapter was plugged in the battery did not charge.  I thought and still believe this is some smart Lenovo battery saving technique but my battery is now on 0% and it still has not started charging...

Re: New L520 battery not charging?

hey markuskempus,

welcome to the forums.

when you have the adapter connected, did indicator at the start bar near the clock indicated that it was connected to a power supply ? or was the indicator showing that it was battery only?

can the unit be switch on with power adapter minus battery ?

I have the same problem. A yellow indicator keep flashing, and the power manager says plugged, not charging.

Re: New L520 battery not charging?

I am having the same problem and can not seem to sort it out via the "Power Manager 3" settings.

 

Do you have a solution for this problem, as it does not appear to be resolved yet.

 

I have Zero battery power, the adaptor is plugged it. I can not use my laptop unless it is plugged in.... It has been plugged in all day today and it is still at Zero!!!!

 

I need Help!!!!

Re: New L520 battery not charging; Problem Solved

I discovered that simple is not stupid or perhaps it makes me so....

 

While my laptop was operating and  plugged into the AC adaptor, I dislogged the battery and then reattached it.

 

My battery has now started to recharge. It was at zero and is now at 33% and still going!

 

I hope this simple solution helps you.

Re: New L520 battery not charging?

My AC Adapter is pluged in, but, there is no indication in the tasks bar at right side, it shows as if there were no charger!

It used to display a black adapter as an indicator for AC plugged in, Any idea please ?
