Help! Lenovo Yoga 3 not charging

2016-09-13, 12:14 PM

Hi I turned on my Yoga 3 after a long time briefly. It showed battery as discharging and shut down after 5 minutes. 


The charger is connected and I've tried various adapters but it is not even showing a charging signal light now.


What can I do or get checked?

I had an issue with mine, where the plug end on the charger wasnt making contact so the charger wasn't getting power.


This was on the US one however, so not sure how the plug differs on other models.




You say you were using other adapters. What do you mean by this, as the yoga 3 has extra pins in the charging port that deliver the 20V needed for charging.
