Yoga 500 charging for one second, then not charging for one second

Hi. I recently bought a Lenovo Yoga 500 laptop, and I'm quite disappointed. When I plug in my charger, 9/10 times it starts to charge, then immediately stop charging, then charge again for a second. This results in never charging. Eventually it charges normally, but it's completely random and sometimes requires 5+ restarts. I need this laptop for school so taking it off for repair is hard for me but I will do it if there is no other way. I got a second charger from a friend and this still occurs, so the problem isn't with the charger. Anyone have any idea for a fix?

 

Thanks

Hi Wine3,

 

Welcome to the Forums  

 

As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with the battery not charging in your Lenovo Yoga 500 laptop.

 

Try to reinstall the energy manager and check for the issue.

 

Click here for the energy manager for windows 10.

 

Let us know the result.

 

Best regards,

My Y500 came with Windows 8.1. Is there an energy management driver for that?

 

Thanks.

The energy manager reintsall didn't work. We took the laptop back and they recognized the problem and that it is a manufacturing flaw. We got a new one in return, problem solved Smiley Happy

Re: Yoga 500 charging for one second, then not charging for one second

If the laptop is out of warranty, is there any known sulution? 

I've got my Yoga 500 from a friend knowing that there some flickering issues, this got sorted by installing all the  drivers, the big issue is the charging, got new AC cable, new battery and new Jack Power Socket, but apparently the problem is really the MotherBoar as the laptop keeps only charging when it wants or when it gets completly discharged.
