Lenovo IdeaPad Y560 won't charge, battery and charger are OK

My 3 year old Lenovo Y560 i5 laptop won't charge Smiley Sad When I power it on with battery in it everything works normally, but when I plug in charger nothing happens. I checked charger and it works fine, it's output is stable 20V. When I take off the battery, and try power the laptop with charger only, LED indicators light up for half a second and nothing happened. With battery in, laptop closed and charger plugged in, battery LED indicator blinks orange, about 3 seconds on and 10 off, without charging battery even after several hours. I didn't have problem with jack for charging so far, so I think it isn't cause to a problem. I tried a trick with holding the power button for 30 seconds and it didn't work. Does anyone have similar problem or at least any idea of how to fix this issue?

Does it boot with the power plug in, but battery pulled?

No it doesn't"t. When I press the power button only LED indicators (two at the front side and ideapad logo) light up for half a second and that's it, display, fan and DVD ROM don't turn on. This happens every time I press power button when battery is out and charger plugged in.

It seems your charger is broken despite having the right voltage. My guess it that it cannot deliver sufficient power. Try to find someone with the same charger (voltage, plug and polarity has to be the same. There can be more amps/watt) and try using it. If you don't know anybody that could have a charger like that try electronics shops or services.
