Re:Yoga 920 won't charge anymore

2020-05-29, 0:05 AM

Hope this helps.

 

I purchased my Lenovo Yoga 910 131 KB in the USA around 2017.

 

A great looking laptop with awesome specs, however right from the get go it was revving the fans constantly, was told to reduce cpu to 98% which helped, but still always runs very hot when charging, I now mostly charge it when not using only to avoid this.

 

Two years later the battery would hardly hold a charge for more than two hours and therefore constantly charging and getting hot, shoulda bought a new battery then.

 

This year it stopped charging, it rebooted ok but nothing would get it to charge, eventually it stopped working, was going to get it fixed but store wanted about $316.00 plus parts.

 

Did my google research watched some videos how to replace the usb power board and found these forums, tried Lenovo for the USB power board  and out of stock both in the USA and AU.  Found this company in AUS  https://store.emprgroup.com.au/  and ordered the part  4 in stock about $108.00 AU which arrived in two days, plugged it in all fixed.  Possibly if you order from the USA with currency differences you would get it for around $50.00 USD, You can even phone them and they assist you to verify the correct part numbers as needed.

 

I didn't replace the cable to reduce disassembly, I have a new battery in now.

 

Thanks for these forums and the contributors it helped me greatly.

Worked for me as well! Thank you soooo much for taking the time to come back and put this update. I had one port that worked and one that did not. Implemented the fix and works great now!

That’s what I did, bought the usb board instead. It lasted exactly 8 month, and I had to replace it again. I ended up purchasing asurion home protect plan for $29 a month. I paid them $90 and send them my laptop. They replaced the motherboard, the battery and the usb board. Let’s see how long it will last this time. This  might be my last Lenovo

I hear ya. It was my last Lenovo. I had so many problems with faulty hardware and/or drivers. I carried the **bleep**ed thing around for a year, and it gave me nothing but trouble, I'm glad my work paid for it, and I was able to just hand it back when my time there was done. $2000 would have been a lot of coin to write off. I now use Dell XPS series and am much happier. I hope someone from Lenovo product management reads this thread and ups their game. Of course, this is a 3 year old machine, so perhaps they're better now, but I won't know unless Dell starts to screw up and I need to start researching a new favorite vendor.

I agree... I recently purchased a Dell XPS and am very happy with the machine.  If anyone wants a Yoga 920 paperweight, please contact me.
