Problem started with power cord icon flickering but would not charge. Now it does not recognized that the power cord is plugged in. Machine is no more than 6 months old.

I just encountered this on my Yoga 500. Try disconnecting AC power, removing the back cover, disconnecting the battery lead from the unit, hold the power button down for some time, then reconnect the battery to the unit, and plug the AC power in again.

If that doesn't work (which it didn't for me either), then it's likely a battery firmware issue (see here where Lenovo Support confirmed for another customer: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yogo-500-battery-charging-not-charging/td-p/3428528) - see if you can get the device serviced or RMA'd if at all possible.
