L340 15IRH Gaming Laptop Charging Problem

2020-04-09, 12:48 PM

So I think I have a major problem and you'll have to excuse any ignorance as I'm not the most technical person in the world, at some point in the night my dog has knocked the laptop off the sofa (my own fault for leaving it out) and the charging port is damaged and the laptop will not charge.

 

Took it to one place for repair who have said that as part is soldered onto the board it is not sold separately and so the entire system board would need to replaced, which it doesn't appear Lenovo will ship to the UK and I'm sure the cost would be pretty huge even if I could get hold of it.. so I currently have a gaming laptop I can't use.

 

Is there anyway this can be repaired? Or is it possible to charge and use this laptop using a 100w charger via the usb c port? I thought I'd ask the latter question before spending £70 on a charger.

I don't think the USB C port supports charging. 

 

If you want to give it a shot, try replacing the Charging Port. 

You can open your laptop and take a look at your charging port, it probably has a number on it. 

And compare it to ones sold at websites like Ebay and AliExpress. 

 

You probably won't find an exact match; one that is specifically designed for your L340. 

However, you can find a close match such as this one: 

 

Color A

Search and compare to your own. Then, decide whether you wanna try.

Hope it all works out.

That's beyond my capabilities but I really appreciate the answer, hopefully a local repairer will be able to carry that out if I can find one still working in the current climate.

 

Is the no to USB charging a definite? I only ask because the manual for the model states the port is there to "Connect to USB-C accessories to expand computer functionality, transfer data, or charge your device" which confused me as the laptop uses a 135W power supply and as far as I can see the most available for USB C is 100W, but it wouldn't be the first time a manual was incorrect on the details.

Yes, difficult times. That's the ideal situation; you buy the part and send it along with L340 to a local repair shop.  

 

 

"Connect to USB-C accessories to expand computer functionality, transfer data, or charge your device"  

 

From what I understand, that just means that the USB C port provides the device you connect to your L340 with power.  

 

They didn't mean that L340 can draw power from a source connected via the USB C port.
