Yoga 14 Battery 0% (Plugged in, charging)

Hey there, 


So I have this problem where my Yoga 14 will only turn on if I plug in the AC adapter, and once I remove the adapter the computer shuts off.  I downloaded the BIOS update, BUT, since my battery says "Plugged in, 0% available" my Thinkpad will not let me install it, as it says that my battery is not charged sufficiently.  What can I do? Thank you all so much!

Hi michsnyder17,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


The hardware manual have some steps for power checkout (Page 26-27) that you can try.


To this extent I think you need to have the battery integrity checked if it does need to be replaced. You can try to plug the machine for 2-3 hours without powering it. This should at least increase the charge if the battery is good or if there is no issue with the machine charging it.


I hope this helps answer your query.
