T43 battery light flashing green when unplugged

2008-07-24, 15:31 PM

I've come across some weird issues, but this one is new. When the battery is charging, I expect to see a flashing green light, but when you turn it off, it continues to flash green after you unplug it. The only way to get that light to stop flashing green is to pull the battery. I have tried different batteries, and no luck. My next guess would be to replace the system board, unless someone has a guess first.

If the machine is still under warranty, send it in and have it repaired.

 

If it's not...that might be a lot of money to pay to resolve a fairly minor (IMO) issue...

 

Good luck and let us know.

Cheers,

George

Well, I'm Lenovo certified and the system is still under warranty. I swapped out the system board with another and that solved it, but that is the first time I've come across that issue.

Well, you are ahead of the game then...I'll admit that I've never seen the issue myself.
