Lenovo g50-70 won't charge or run from charger

The other day when I went to use my laptop there was a pop that came from the charge socket, then the laptop would shutdown if the charger was plugged in. Then the next day the laptop said it was charging when plugged in but the battery continued to drain until it won't turn on anymore. I checked that the fuse hadn't blown in the charger and also opened up the laptop and couldn't see any burns near the charge socket.

Re: Lenovo g50-70 won't charge or run from charger

Hi Hobbes_ , 


Welcome to the Community Forums.


To confirm current status of the laptop, seems that right not is no longer powering.

Status indicator (page29)may now be off with or without being connected to the charger. 


You may try following power checkout (page21-22) to see if the ac adapter / battery / power port is working specially if you have a spare adapter to test with or test the original adapter using a voltmeter if still able to provide needed power. 


Update us how things goes on the power checkout.
