I have same problem too.

Changing the power adapter solved the issue? If it works, I try to get a new one.

Thanks.

I had the same problem and was able to solve it. So maybe this solution will help someone, although there are probably several different reasons for this problem. So don't expect this to be the solution for everyone.

What I had:

-spontaneous shutdowns, especially while gaming

-Warning-Window from Lenovo Energy Manager, which stated, that my "power adapter has limited support"

Note: I'm not sure if these two things always come together.

Replacing the power adapter obviously didn't solve the isssue.

 

So i decided to open the Z510 (there are videos on youtube), and found the critical part:

The powerjack cable (named "DC30100KT00") is connecting the power jack to the mainboard (in the left upper corner of the device). In my case, this connection to the mainboard had black burn marks on it.

The cables and connectors are designed to be barely able to conduct the current of 4,5 A in situations with high load (graphics card, etc.). So i soldered the cables from the power jack directly to the mainboard. (Alternatively you could probably just replace the "DC30100KT00") After this, the error message hasn't appeared again, and the laptop is running fine, even under heavy load for many hours.

Note: You may loose your warranty. I'm not responsible for any damage you do to your laptop or anything else when trying this method.

 

If anyone tries this: Please give feedback if it works for you.

Yes, the laptop works absolutely perfect. As far as i'm concerned, the problem is (in my specific case) solved.

I didn't replace the power jack, but instead soldered the connector on the Mainboard directly to the cables from the power jack. I attached an image to make it clearer. I assume, that it may be sufficient to replace this connector, but i haven't tried.

0 person found this solution to be helpful.

This helped me too

Hello,

I tried almost the same, I disconnected and reconnected the cable. Now laptop stays up when it is plugged to wall for much longer (4 hours) than before (which was zero sec.). 

I will wait for your confirmation before I order the cable.

 

thank you,

EPanosian
