I have a flex 3 1480 80R3 with a acharging circuit problem . The laptop can be used when plugged in but it stopped charging after a power surge. The message is 'plugged in - not charging''.
I have tested with diferent battery and charger and problem is on motherboard.
Im wondering if I can get a motherboard repair walk-through if someone is familiar with this board, or perhaps if anyone has any ideas for how to get a schematic for the board so I can pass it to a technician and fix whatever component has gone bad. There is only one Lenovo service centre in Spain and the have quoted me crazy money as they dont repair boards they just swap them out.

Regardless of the country you are in, the story is the same. The boards are swapped, not repaired.

I assume you are referring to Lenovo service centres. It doesn't take long to find a computer repair centre which will repair boards not just swap them out ( I have found plenty round me) . They tend to require schematics for the board though.
