Y560p Battery Plugged In, Not Charging

The battery is staying at 95% after noticing it at 97% without charging.

 

I first noticed this a few weeks ago to which I simply unplug and earplugged the AC adapter which fixed it. Now, that doesn't work anymore. I have tried to boot the laptop with battery only and replug the ac without success. I removed the battery and place it back with the lock on which also led to failure. I tried the boot only on AC and uninstall microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery which simply brought it back on the next boot up and did not start charging my battery. 

The lenovo energy management is left on optimize for battery runtime and nothing is charging. I have the latest driver for 64.

 

I have yet to call support and I bought this laptop back in beginning June.

 

Any other suggestions?

 

Thanks

Re: Y560p Battery Plugged In, Not Charging

I see that you've unplugged it from the AC Adaptor and plugged it back. Have you tried unplugging the AC Adaptor from the wall, leaving it unplugged for a few minutes, ingand then try it again?

 

Don't ask me why this works, but it has worked for me for other laptops I have owned. It's worth a shot.

Also try removing and replacing the battery when running and plugged in. Has worked for me!

Re: Y560p Battery Plugged In, Not Charging

If you use it on battery to about say 50%,
will it charge up again?

Or not charge at all?

You mention 95% charge, but do not say how well
it works otherwise.

Things I read on the internet. A quick google search made this into a bigger deal when forums have a history of a set charge for lenovo.

Re: Y560p Battery Plugged In, Not Charging

Anyone know a way to get this problem fixed without sending the laptop to lenovo? I keep reading **bleep**ty things about their customer service, so I want that to be a last resort

 

My problem is identical: Y560P, when plugged in not charging. I tried using one of my friend's Ideapad chargers and it didn't work, so the problem's probably in the connector.
