Lenovo Ideapad 500s not charging

I got my laptop a year ago but now it won't charge properly. Sometimes it charges and sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it charges on and off, with enough power to keep it on but not adding to the battery life (so if the laptop battery is at 14% for example, it would stay there not lower, not higher). Other times it would charge all the way to 100% and other times it wouldn't charge at all.

At first I thought it was the charger but I just bought a new one and it's still doing the same thing.

Hi SandyRaza  and welcome to the community,

 

This sounds like you have a faulty connection in the mains socket. you would need to get that checked by a technician.

 

Hope this help you and let us know how you get on
