T470 not charging

2020-01-02, 19:56 PM

I have Windows 10 and T470 but quite often I have problems charging my PC. I plug in and nothing happens, sometimes it helps to "play" with computer and adapter.  I have feeling that it is more software related issue, any one also has this?

 

BR,

User :)

Can you check the battery status while plugged in? Is it like "Plugged in, not charging"?

So what message is shown when you 1) Plugged in, 2) mouse click the battery icon in the task bar?

Both are showing on battery, even if the cable is connected. Once pressed reset button (on the bottom side) and it helped but only a little bit of time.

Now is issue, when switching comupter off and cable is connected, red charging light comes up. But when charging cable is connected turn on button doesnt work. Removing the charing cable and computer turns on when pressing power button. 

 

When windows is running the charing cable is not detected. 

I have tried removing batteries in system and installing / uninstalling different lenove software. (All drivers seem to be up to date)
