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

Welcome to the Lenovo Community msfuchs !

 

In Windows 10, the Conservation Mode feature is now included with the Lenovo Settings apps.  If you do not have Lenovo Settings installed then you can get it at the Windows Store.

 

In Lenovo Settings there will be a battery icon on the left.  Click on that.  A new screen will then open on the right.  Scroll down to about the middle of the page and you will see the Conservation Mode option.  Turn it Off to begin charging to 100%.

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

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!  My computer sat in the shop all day today and the only solution they could figure was "you need a new battery".  I did what you suggested and VIOLA!!!  It worked!

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

If your laptop is plugged in but not charging, these steps can help you troubleshoot.

1.Unplug for a few minutes, then try a different outlet.

Unplug the laptop, wait a few minutes, then plug it into an outlet in a different room. Some users report that a laptop power adapter can temporarily stop working to protect itself from a perceived issue with the power supply.

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

I know this is an old thread, but I thought my experience might help someone out.  I have a Thinkpad P50 with Window 10 Pro.  I had this problem and after much frustration found that if the computer gets put in Airplane mode, it changes the power settings to  one that will not charge the laptop.  All you need to do is right-click the Start button, go to Power Options, then Additional Power Settings and select the Balanced setting instead of the Airplane setting.  Immediately the battery will start charging.

  It does not matter if you turn the Airplane mode off in the wireless area, the Power Setting will stay in Airplane mode.

 

Cheers,

Dave

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

Hi,

 

I have the same problem with a new machine I just received, Lenovo ThinkPad T430. It's running Windows 10 so I have not tried your suggestions. Can you please provide the steps to fix this issue with a Windows 10 OS.

 

Thank you

It should not matter what version of Windows 10 you have, the instructions I posted above should work.  It was Windows 10 that those instructions work for.

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

Thanks everyone. Seems that they shipped me the incorrect adapter. I have contacted the company who agrees and will ship me the correct adapter. Thanks again.

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.
