Ideapad problem: battery and power light flashing and laptop not charging

My laptop has been distrubing since yesterday. Whenever I put in the power chord, the power light and battery light starts flashing together and the laptop does not charge. When I remove the chord, the flashing disapperas. Occassionally, it charges a little before going out again. 

 

I tried using the laptop without the battery. It sometimes does not start and other times, it goes into the first few seconds of booting (the BIOS page) before going out again. 

 

Do you guys know what this code indicates? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Ideapad problem: battery and power light flashing and laptop not charging

Hello Navtek

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.


This seems like this could be a power issue.

 

Have you tried to use a different charger at all?

 

Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.

(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)
1. Turn the unit off
2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter
3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds
4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter
5. Turn the unit on as normal

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.
