Battery Not Charging and lights blinking

2014-03-27, 2:54 AM

I just recently within the last day or so, started having a problem with my ideapad p400 touch. When i plug it in to charge it will be okay for a little while, then it will stop charging and the power light, and both the indicator lights on the front of the laptop (battery and power) will start flashing rapidly. Please help. I have already tried uninstalling the lenovo power management, didnt work. My battery does not need a firmware update, i checked. I already did the BIOS update. Tried a battery gage reset, was never able to complete it cause the computer stops recognizing the charger before it finishes. Tried a different outlet and charger. Im stumped.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Hi Krissyal06,

thanks for posting and welcome to the community. To be honest I would not like to to think that this could be related to the hardware but it seems like this could be related to the mother board. However I'd like to be sure first so let try different possibilities. If this fails I believe your system may require to be sent to our service teams for further analysis.

Let try this first though. Power down your machine to a complete shut and the take out the battery and power cord from the computer. Once done Press the power button repeatedly for 10secs and then hold the power button for another 10sec. Once done assemble everything back again and check for the difference.

If you do not notice any difference try uninstalling the Lenovo Energy management software and then reinstall the software from the link below and check for the changes again.

Another thing that you might want to consider doing first before attempting the above is to update the Battery firmware. Below is the link that you can update the battery.

I hope this helps. and do post back your results.

I would if I could. This model does not have a removeable battery, it is internal.

I tried uninstalling and reinstaling the power management program already.

And my battery says it doesnt need a firmware update. :(

Im not to keen on being without my computer to send it in. I need it for work

Or this:

Battery may "catch" power outage, think something went wrong and prevent charging.

Also it may be AC Adapter issue - check all connections, move wires.
