Re: Unauthorized Battery Message: Yoga Pro 2

Yes this issue keeps reappearing.

 

Lenovo need to fix it, and issue a new update for either bios or energy manager.

 

Or remove this check all together.

Re: Unauthorized Battery Message: Yoga Pro 2

All,

 

Apologies for this.  I've unmarked the "solved" message on the second post in the thread since this issue appears to be ongoing.

 

Could you all confirm the BIOS and Energy manager that you have installed (Yes, I know the upgraded ones, but I just want to have you confirm version numbers for the case).

 

Could one of you also send me a PM with your contact info, and the type and serial number on the back of your unit?

 

Lastly, does the battery actually charge despite the warning messages, or is charging blocked?  (It sounds like it works, but you are just getting annoying messages )

 

Thanks,

 

Mark

Re: Unauthorized Battery Message: Yoga Pro 2

1. Energy Manager 1.01.49
BIOS 76CN31WW 31/10/2013

2. PM sent

3. The battery does charge, it's just the warning message that pops up every time I boot.

Thanks for looking into it.

Re: Unauthorized Battery Message: Yoga Pro 2

For me same issue after Bios update with

 

Energy Manager 1.01.49
BIOS 76CN31WW 31/10/2013

The battery charges.

 

 

BUT battery reset/calibration in Energy Manager not working too, because tt always stops after some time because battery status changes then from authorized to not authorized.

 

Please fix this soon!

This also happens to me. When charging it will automatically go into conservative mode randomly. It is very annoying! It will charge to 80%+ and go down to 60%.

Problems:

every start a message stating it's not the original battery, same message in energy manager

randomly setting back to conservation mode (charging only to 60%)

since 2-3 days ago also a message upon starting stating it's not the original poweradapter and the laptop will not chrarge. however till now it always charged just fine on this unit

 

on my old unit (also showing this message) charging was not possible (unit had same EM and BIOS version)

I have the unauthorized message when opening Energy Manager. 

 

The first week I got this, there was a unauthorized ac adapter message but that hasn't appeared since.
