Re: Yoga 3 Pro Battery Charging Problems

Thanks for the heart/battery info. Next question: is it advantageous to
prolong l overall battery life? What's the difference in lifespan
conservation vs full blast?

Re: Yoga 3 Pro Battery Charging Problems

This is become funny. So many issues with battery and NO ANY LENOVO support. Some body can tell me if LENOVO have online support. Let say when i have problem with HP they have such options. But LENOVO just sending me mails that i have to buy more and more LENOVO things. But, please, with such technical support will i go to buy another LENOVO?

Re: Yoga 3 Pro Battery Charging Problems

Hi all. Sorry I haven't replied in a couple days. So, since I did the
uninstalled the ACPI thing under battery in device manager, I've had no
problems with anything, including battery.
Also of note is that I was getting help logging into email at my
university, and the tech guy said, sounds like malware. We downloaded and
ran "adw cleaner," and he doing like a dozen things, including one marked
Lenovo. He just said, let's get rid off all that before I had time to look,
and now the yoga 3 seems great.
Just thought I'd mention if that's of use to someone. Alas, I did too much
at once to isolate the right track, but this isn't a randomized control
study. I gotta work! ;-)

Re: Yoga 3 Pro Battery Charging Problems

I had tried everything, finally after a month I took my Y3P back to JB
Hi-Fi, and they tested and replaced the whole unit, nothing they tried
would restore the charging. Excellent support from the dealer, highly
recommended

The only thing that I remember doing was to change the battery charge
profile from Normal to Conservation mode. I will not do that again, when
not using I hibernate... hope that works.

Re: Yoga 3 Pro Battery Charging Problems

FINALY PROBLEM SOLVED

I just followed most frequent agvise. 

01. Uninstalled battery driver from Task Manager

02. Disconnected AC power

03. Unscrew 10 bolts of back cover and remove cover. As you know YOGA 3 PRO have not battery slot, that why u need anscrew back cover to reach battery

04. Carefuly disconnect battery jack. Very easy to find because only 2 black wires going from battery.

05. Connect battery jack back

06. Plug in AC power

07. Check that battery start charging. This is up to u, but I just start the Laptop with open back cover, good thing that screen can flip.

08. Confirmed that battery charging, OKO gives 3.5 hours from 0%

09. After 2 hours, battery has reach 95%

10. Switch off AC power, disconnect power cord and close back cover.

Feeling satisfaction. With myself of course not with LENOVO support.

Re: Yoga 3 Pro Battery Charging Problems

This solved my same problem on my Yoga3. Cannot thank you enough MarinM!

 

I tried various solutions described on the Lenovo Community Boards, nothing solved it. I called Lenovo warranty support 877-453-6686 and they had me uninstall and resinstall OneKey Optimizer, and uninstall the Device Manager, Batteries, Microsoft ACPI (which reinstalls automatically upon reboot). This did not fix the problem and so I was provided with return-for-warranty repair information (Fedex, RMA, forms, emails). All a positive service experience, but the problem is software, not hardware, so they'd likely have done a system restore and I'd have been without my computer for two weeks and had to restore and reinstall everything.

 

Instead, I just followed MarinM's solution:

 

Unplug AC adapter

Open OneKey Optimizer

Choose Save Power, from top row of icons

Choose Battery Conservation, from the row below the icons (Checking Power  Ultra Saving   Battery Conservation)

Click the Battery Sleep Mode slider to turn it on (blue)

Shut down computer

Insert AC adapter

Turn on computer (this automatically resets the battery sleep mode to off)

When you open OneKey Optimizer, click on "Save Power", then "Battery Conservation" and turn on "Battery Sleep Mode", then shut down your computer, insert the charger and turn it on.


Just want to confirm that this worked for me.

Re: Yoga 3 Pro Battery Charging Problems

I followed Marin M's solution and it worked perfectly. It's been about
2 weeks and no further problems.

Re: Yoga 3 Pro Battery Charging Problems

MarinM's battery saver solution worked for me too, thanks!  One change to BrunoP's helpful list of steps: you do not need to unplug the charger until after you shut down, if even then.  I had to do it this way because my computer would no longer work unless plugged in.  The solution still worked.
