X1 Yoga 2nd Gen- Battery not charging

2019-06-24, 12:36 PM

We had to replace around 50 mainboards because the X1 Yoga 2nd Gen we purchased suddenly stopped charging (LED won't light up when plugging in AC adapter in any USB-C slot). Sometimes it will even start with the HDMI port not working and soon after people will call that they can't charge their Notebooks anymore.

 

We tried everything, updating the firmware and drivers and then pressing the reset button. Nothing works. Has anybody else experienced this?

 

It also seems that we're about to have the same problems with the X1 Yoga 3rd Gens.

 

Has anybody experienced the same and is there a way to prevent this from happening?

 

Kind regards,

I have used both generations of x1 yoga extensively, and I haven't seen the behavior you describe.

Exactly same problem. Tried disconnecting internal and cell battery, reconnecting, recharging.nothing worked. Battery dead and laptop cant be powered up. Hoping my data won't be lost.

What  next? 2 yr old laptop worth 2700$ and I am now going to fork out how much? Not fair !!!!

Apparently my 2 year old Lenovo x1 yoga had the same issue. It was motherboard and I was troubleshooting battery all the time for the 2 days after following advices from a lot of people in different forums.

Lenovo was pretty good in resolving the issue though. I hope it doesnt happen with my 2nd one that I purchased this year!!
