Re: [G580] Battery plugged in, not charging!

I tried the solution but nothing worked for me.


Which solution?

 

Depending on the age of the battery (check the dates on the battery) it could be that it has reached the end of its lifespan, or has defective cells.  LiON batterys contain imbedded electronics that monitor for unsafe conditions, rate of charge, rate of discharge and the health of the battery overall.  If the controller board in the battery goes bad, it can act like a dead battery as well.

 

You can use Lenovo Tools to reset the battery, and if that fails take the battery to a local shop (Interstate Batteries) and have them test it out for you.  If your computer is under warranty, contact Lenovo Support by phone and have them send out a new battery.  If your battery tests out OK, see if the AC adapter is putting out the proper voltages and replace if neccessary.

 

Those are some of the obvious tests I run here in my shop.

 

Good luck.

You may have the charging issue on your laptop due to the incorrect emails problem. 

  • Let's check the power adapter. 
  • Reinstall the battery once , and then turn on your laptop. 

You should also check the charging socket. most of the time, lenovo laptop won't charge due to the short circuit.

I am currently having the same issue. I have had my laptop thinkpad for 2 years now. The charger began to make a squeaking noise whenever plugged in so I researched online and was advised to purchase a new adapter charger. I tried the new one and it now says "plugged in, not charging" and the old charger says the same. I have tried different sockets but no use. The solutions on here are too outdated for my Windows 10.

 

Any current solution??
