Battery for T530 not charging---Please help!

2014-09-09, 5:00 AM

Hello all,

 

For some reason, but seemingly all of a sudden, when I plug my T530 in, the battery does not charge.  When I move my cursor over the "power" icon in desktop mode, the message "Plugged in, not charging" appears.  How do I alter this, so that I may charge my battery? 

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Solved! See the solution

Hi Dtowntil,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

As per the query we understood that you are facing an issue with system not charging on your ThinkPad T530.

 

To resolve this issue please shutdown the system and remove the battery and switch ON the system connecting only ‘Power Adapter’. Wait till the system boot completely and then go to ‘Device Manager’ and uninstall ‘Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery’ under battery option. After uninstalling shutdown the system and remove ‘Power Adapter’ and insert the battery and then switch ON the system and check if the issue has been resolved.

 

Hope this helps!

 

Best regards,

Hemanth Kumar

I have the same problem with the Lenovo T530.  I followed the steps, but in my case it did not work.  It still says "plugged in- not charging".  I just got this computer, and I am very close to returning it.  This should not take so much time and energy to solve, if this is in fact possible.  Any comments are appreciated.

Thanks,

 

Gabe

Thanks

 

This worked great for me too. My system was reverting to airplane mode each time I restarted and would not charge the battery even though it was docked and the dock was plugged in. I wouldn't notice it until it warned me that it was low on power.

I have problem with my t530, i removed the "mid life" old battery yesterday to try new battery, then i returned the old battery again. Now the t530 is not workibg at all on battery, only it works on power adapter. When it work the battery is showing charging 66% and increasing, but if I unplug the power adapter, pc will turn off totally.
