Re: Yoga 920 won't charge anymore

2019-04-23, 18:24 PM

I'm having a similar issue.

My charging port seems like it might be messing up.

When I plug my charger in, it doesn't feel like it's plugging in all the way. It feels loose/wiggly and it's not in all the way.

My cord stopped charging and so I bought a new cord, now it's charging, but sometimes it needs adjusting to charge. (as if it only works in some positions).

 

I'm not sure how to solve this issue without trying to replace the part within the computer, but I'm not sure I trust myself. I haven't even had this laptop 2 years.

You shouldn't have to replace a laptop every 2 years...make better, long lasting products?

And my warranty is out by about a year.

I love my laptop and I don't want to have to get a new one. I cannot afford a new one.

Re: Yoga 920 won't charge anymore

Hello 4-23-2019:

 

I had the same problem and ended up loosing all battery power.  Now I am using my Yoga 920 as an expensive paper weight.  I had very valuable files on my hard drive, which as now effectively lost. 

 

My original post here was October 2018, and I did get one suggestion (see Solution post) that worked temporarily, but evenutally even that did not allow the machine to hold its battery power.  The power code is useless, as it does not by pass the batter and power the machine.

 

I learned a valuable an expensive lesson and will steer clear of any Lenovo device in the future.  If anyone has any suggestion to solve my problem, OR is looking for a cheap paperweight, please contact me.

I was told to bring it in to Best Buy and they could send it out to have it fixed, for around $160 to $200 or so.

As you can see, it isn't quite plugging in all the way.

Do other USB-C peripherals plug in and function properly?

The new cord I bought isn't lenovo, it's the white one in my picture. The new one charges, but doesn't feel secure, the old one was lenovo and also didn't feel secure.

Re: Yoga 920 won't charge anymore

So my laptop had been a paper weight for almost a full year before I finally ran across this solution. I went all the way to changing the charging port, Ofcourse that didn't work. Not sure what exactly did the trick but I completely took out the battery not hard just a few screws, popped it back in and held the power button for 40 seconds, plugged it back in and started charging up. Will never buy a Lenovo laptop again, this was the second big issue I've had with the laptop. I really wanted it to workout since the performance and portability is all there. But quality is definitely a mark against it.

I'm done with Lenovo's consumer line of hardware. Buggy drivers and hardware coupled with high prices. It's too bad, because they're nice looking machines. I use their commercial laptops at work, and it's just the opposite. They're not very sexy, but pretty **bleep** realiable.

I had the same issue and I'm sure not going to replace the motherboard if I can help it, so I factory reset my yoga and it's now charging, but it wasn't strong enough to complete the reset  it just died in me while resetting. It does tell me tho that this is a operating system issue. 

i hope this Info helped Someone :)

So yeah... the factory reset didn't fix it. Lenovo literally tells you to purchase a new motherboard. Not true! I paid $41 for the part. Easy to install, works like a charm. 

not happy with Lenovo tho. Make sure your admins or techs know what they are talking about.
