Re: Notebook battery is not getting re-charged.

Seems like alot of people are getting the same problem.
 
I have the same problem even though the battery pack was replaced 4 months ago.
 
Shouldn't Lenovo consider recalling all the batteries?

I have the same issues. My battery does not charge. The charging light goes to orange then cuts out.Model # 0768.
This is obviously a defect issue. I see that there is some help via this site but none when you call Lenovo direct... that's not helpful. I just got the standard you are out of warranty reply from the phone support.

I guess I need to contact Mark as he seems to be able to get things done.

Bill.

I'm afraid I have an identical problem, Mark.
The battery did not gradually reduce its power output.
It just went dead!
I saw something about Lenovo Battery recall and assumed it included mine, but the sytem did not recognizeits serial number.
Please hELP!

Many thanks - battery just arrived and is merrily charging right now.
 
Fantastic - it is great to touch base with the real world - things are so slow down here in South Spain - or they don't happen at all :smileymad:

Re: Notebook battery is not getting re-charged.

Boy, am I glad I found this thread.  Some friends of mine purchased a Lenovo N100 system (for home) and a T60p (for work) after my wholehearted recommendation and praise of Lenovo products.  The N100 system was purchased in late November of '06 and developed this very problem this past January.

When I poked at it, because the battery was still showing a 33% charge, but was unable to be charged or have the computer run off of the existing battery charge, I figured it was the mainboard that had failed and NOT the battery.  Because it was out of warranty at that point, I told them they were out of luck unless we could find someone parting out an N100 with a functional motherboard.

However, we recently realized that we had a mutual friend who also had an N100 with a working battery/charger, so we asked to borrow his computer and we tried the defective battery on his system and his battery on the other system.  His system responded to the bad battery in exactly the same way (battery light goes amber, then green, then DARK; computer says battery has 33% charge but is not charging and cannot run off of the battery), and we successfully managed to use his battery on the first system, so we KNOW now that it is the battery.

Mark, I am sending you a PM with details on this system (computer model, serial number and battery serial).

Thanks!!

-- Nathan
