Flex 3 1580 Won't Charge

Lenovo Flex 3 1580

 

I've tried multiple lenovo AC adapters and the laptop still won't charge. It's got about 4% battery left so it's turned off atm. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the battery drivers, but that did nothing. The charging light won't come on, the only light is the low battery light. The battery is the built-in kind so taking it out isn't an option. I don't know what to do, someone please help.

I'm having the same problem! Mine's down to 0% so it has to constantly be plugged in. I'm really hoping someone can help with this!

I don't think you do have the same problem. If plugging in the charger does anything at all and can keep the computer alive, then we have a different issue. My computer doesn't get affected by the charger at all.

Joboy, when did it happen for you? When did you realize you the charger didn't do anything? Also, have you tried any other Lenovo AC adapters?

I ended up going to the tech support chat and I sent my laptop off in the box they sent me. Anyone else with this problem probably has to do the same. I'll update you guys when they figure out the issue and also what parts they end up replacing.

Re: Flex 3 1580 Won't Charge

Update!!! I bought a new battery n replaced the old battery, still not charging! I brought mine to MicroCenter to have the a/c power cord to test.. cable was fine. They also tested the power inlet where u plug in the a/c cord.  And it was bad. They replaced it for $95. Now it's fixed. I hope this help. Let's see how long it will last.  Have a good day to all

Thanks for sharing.

 

The replaced part is below one, right?

What test they did to find the trouble part?
