Lenovo G530 battery issue?

I'm not sure if this is a battery issue or a power cord trouble.  I just had the mother board replaced and when I brought my laptop home the battery light will blink slow for a few seconds then rapid for a few seconds and then it will shut off.  I have been able to boot the computer twice myself since bringing it home, a third time it was booted when I brought it back to Fry's last night and they couldn't replicate the problem. While they had it in for repair they replaced the power cord also.


Any ideas as to what the problem could be?

Re: Lenovo G530 battery issue?

I have the same issue.  With AC adapter in or out the battery light blinks amber 2 times for 1 sec each and then 26 times very fast.  It is always 2 long followed by 26 short amber flashes.  I feel like this is a diagnostic code that is trying to tell me something.  I'm not interested in buying replacement battery or AC adapter if that is not the problem.
