Charger problems - Only chargers on one side of the charger

2020-04-07, 20:34 PM

Hey guys,


I have a Thinkpad Yoga 460. A few weeks ago I ordered a new charger, after the previous one's cord got cut open somehow. I actually got two new chargers accidentally. Anyway, everything was great, from both chargers, until about a week ago, when one charger stopped working completely, and the other one stopped charger from one side (if I turn it around, it works fine). What can I do? I guess it has something to do with the port itself in the computer, but again - it works in 1 out of 4 options (one side out of 2 possible sides on two chargers).


If it might mean anything, I ordered a new battery (because this one isn't charging to the fullest as it has been about 4 years ago when I bought this computer), so maybe that will fix it (but probably not). It suppose to arrive sometime in the near future (maybe after the Coronavirus crisis ends). 


Please help :)
