Re: Lenovo Legion Y530 Battery Issue

2019-09-04, 23:31 PM

As I said above, I saw a few Y530 users having the same issue, so it's either that you all have the exact same battery and it hppened to fail at the exact same time, or lenovo screwed something up.

It'd be a good idea to send the laptop in just to debunk my first assumption.

Yes, it is the firmware update. Everyone is having this problem. The power button and power cord blink. Lenovo should make a new update soon. Maybe opening, disconnecting the battery, remove peripherals and power cord, press power button for 30sec and then connect the battery again Will solve the issue. Of course it cannot be solved by reinstalling windows as it doesnt start without the pwr cord on.

Battery firmware update Y530 broken battery

2019-09-05, 7:14 AM

Lenovo Vantage suggested to update battery fimware.

Battery is 100%, the laptop is pluged in.

Started the update (see picture 02).

Next :)

Some Retry message (see picture 03).

Next

No succes update (see picture 04).

Next

Failed update (see picture 05).

Next

Shutdown and repeat. Same situation. The only thing that looks different is the numbers from writing data (see picture 03). Some times is stopping after 2/2812 some time after 4/2812 some times after 6/2812.

 

Now the Lenovo Vantage reports Wrong voltage!!! (see picture 01) and is acting like has no battery (if I unplug it the sytem stops).

 

But using the same Lenovo Vantage i see that the battery is good ;) (see picture 06).

 

Info about system in picture 07

 

Any ideas?

 

Admin note; picture 07 removed; it contained system serial number

Re: Battery firmware update Y530 broken battery

I have the same. Yesterday I tried to install this update, the same error. After rebooting, when I hover over the power icon on the taskbar, I see 255% of the available charge, when I click "100% Fully charged."
But the battery is not used. When you disconnect the power cable, the laptop does not turn on. All lights on the laptop are blinking.
All games began to slow down. When you start Mafia 3 at maximum graphics settings, the laptop turns off.

If anyone found a solution please share. There is no suitable solution from Lenovo support yet.

Yes, that would be nice. But if Lenovo messed it up, they should fix it as well. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to send the laptop for repair, because it would take a week or even two, and I need it for work right now. So hopefully they might offer a solution pretty soon, especially if it is the software that is not working properly, I mean the battery firmware update that they released a few days ago.

But I guess we have to wait and see.

Local vendor in here says it might take up to 25 days to receive it back if I send it to warranty service. At least Lenovo shall tell us if they are working on a solution or not.

i have the same exact problem and the root cause was the battery firmware update suggested by lenovo vantage 3 days ago, i faced the same scenario you have mentioned above with pics, i hope there's a solution soon, may be they upload an update to this firmware to fix the issue.
