Thinkpad X1, unused (new) internal battery fitted, will not charge (stuck at 0%)

2016-06-12, 20:37 PM

So I purchased a spare internal battery last year and decided to fit it recently as my intenral battery had degraded to 50%

After fitting the unused battery, it will not charge and is stuck at 0%

I have disabled via the BIOS and re-plugged the ac adapter in to reactivate but it is still not charging up

Battery health is reported as Good, no faults

1 cycle, produciton date is 2012, first use date is todays date so confirmed it is not a used battery

 

Anyone got an idea on how to jump start the battery charging process?

I have an external slice battery at th eoffic ewhich I will use until I sort htis out, but I dont really want to strip the machine again just to swap the original battery back in...

PS Leaving it running and charging overnight in an attempt to wake up the battery since its been sitting in storage for so long...
