Re: Flashing orange battery light while charge indicates 100%?

Hi Mark_Lenovo,

 

As for my previous post. I have to go to the Lenovo service Center today.

 

However, the service guy just inform me the laptop warranty is expired. Even, I emphasized my battery (93P5029) seems is a defective product before ex-factory. And I just used it 134 counts for recharging. But, the guy also told me the recall program is also expired...................... No valuable help to me.

 

SInce, I don't know the recall program before and I am not keeping my eye for checking the news from Lenovo website. I think there are many victims likes my cause.

 

Actually I want to get back my battery. Because, the Li-ion battery themselves are in good condition. I think the problem is at the PCB as you said the fuse blown. 

 

Could you help us (at this forum victims also) who want to repair the battery themselves ?

 

Could you PM me about its circuit diagram and the fuse location ? What is the value ampere of the fuse ? And the disassembly battery case method.

 

Thanks for your help and in-advance. I look forward to waiting for your reply.

asuming that you are all using the ofical charger, i have used a third party one for a year now and it has been slowly dying envn before i had that charger. but just last night while i wasn't watching it it turned off thinking that it was overheated which it offten happeds :s. but the battery may have been the cause of all the shutdowns the system has had over the last half a year. now my battrry sits on 40% exactly never charging.

I had this problem also. I took out the battery and inspected the brass pin connection between the battery and laptop. I noticed there was a hair in between the pins. I air blew it away and voila! Problem solved. 

 

Maybe it's just as simple as that for some of you; debris causing the connection between the laptop and battery to fail. 

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Flashing orange battery light while charge indicates 100%?

Hi There,

            I felt I had to join the community to report that the fix of the "Clear Plastice Piece" wedged into the power connections of the battery also worked for me.

            I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X201 Tablet I left the AC in over night to charge and to try and replicate a different issue I was having with the unit when I notice a "Flashing Orange" Battery LED Light Indicator. I didnt liek the looks of it and found the forum. I read through a few of your thoughts and found "Zengrits" post Simple easy and cheap... I began my hunt ofr a piece of plastic after sizing up my "gap", I foud an old Nano Sim Card from a mobile device and stuck in the already exisiting space, it fit like a glove didn't have to force anything. I poppes the battery back in and presto - solid green battery LED indicator light...

 

Thanks for the post and the fix ZenGrit
