Yoga 900s Not Charging

I have only had this new computer (Yoga 900s) for 4 days.  The battery is not charging.

 

When plugged in, the system tray icon says "Plugged In, Charging", but it is NOT charging.

 

Any suggestions?  I was excited about getting this computer.  However, my recent experiences with Lenovo have left me regretting my decision to make this purchase.


If I can't get this resolved ASAP I am going to have to return it and go with another more reliable brand.


Thanks for any help you can give.

Re: Yoga 900s Not Charging

Welcome to the forum! Sorry to hear of the battery not charging issue.

 

Could you go into the Lenovo Settings app, click the battery icon on the left tool bar, then click Show Details. What does this show? Are there any Battery Status Messages?

Re: Yoga 900s Not Charging

Did you make sure that you have "conservative mode" off on your Yoga? This feature, when turned on- makes the battery sit at around 60% if you keep the charger plugged in all the time.

It looks like there's something wrong with the charging circuitry. Unfortunately you'll have to contact Lenovo and probably send in the Y900s for repair/replacement.

Re: Yoga 900s Not Charging

Any idea how to do that?  I posted in this forum because I have not been able to find any contact information for them.

FWIW I have Conservation Mode enabled on my Y900s. The Status shows "No activity" rather than the OP's "Charging" (or presumably "Discharging" when not connected to AC.)

 

That's why I suspect charging circuitry. 

 

Nevertheless it's a good idea to confirm whether Conservation Mode is on or off.
