Lenovo Yoga 500 Battery problem

My Yoga 500 has a flashing battery sign when I log into it. It says the battery is 0% but it's flashing on and off with the battery saver clicking on and off so the whole screen blinks. I've tried a new charging cable and it's not that... I believe it's the battery, any idea of whether I should risk buying a new one and cracking open the shell? I'm just out of warentee and I have files I've not backed up (I've tried while it's flashing but it keeps turning off now so I've a lot not yet transferred as I know my got about 10% (teaches me not to back up). I've no idea where to turn to get it fixed... And to see if my files can be saved. Help!!

Re: Lenovo Yoga 500 Battery problem

Hi there, Julie              -


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.


You can start by flushing out all static, remove AC adaptor and hold down power button for about 20 seconds.


Update us how it goes.
