Lenovo G70-80 battery charging

I bought a brand "new" Lenovo G70-80 from BestBuy a couple of weeks ago. I never noticed until last night but the battery is not charging even though the adapter is plugged in. Anyone else have the same issue and if so, were you able to get a replacement for your adapter and/or battery?

Welcome to the Forums Guri! 

 

There may be some static electricity issue. You can try to discharge it.Take the AC adapter and battery out. Make sure that pc is not connected to any electric source. And push the power button for about 30sec.Then put the AC Adapter only and try to start you pc normally.

 

Let us know if it helps.

Re: Lenovo G70-80 battery charging

Hi Shasi

 

I get no power or indicator light at all after doing the 30s power drain as you mentioned with the adapter plugged in.

 

However with both the battery and adapter plugged in and pressing the power button, I get 3 flashing amber light

Re: Lenovo G70-80 battery charging

I’m sorry to hear that your issue has not yet been fixed.

 

May b your fuse in the battery have blown, or have been over discharged. i would suggest try a new battery, when it solve the problem, your old battery is simply bad.

 

When the problem remains, also with a new one your charging then inside the system motherboard be damaged.

 

Please go through this link for better understanding on battery status

Hi Umeshkatyar

 

I called Lenovo warranty and asked for a replacement adapter. I received it in 2 business days.

 

After I swapped the adapter, it is charging fine now.

Hi AnaPau

 

If your product is still under warranty, you can request a new adapter. I got mine in like two days and have had no problems since I replaced my adapter.
