Lenovo Z51-70 Battery - Plugged in, Charging - Stuck at 0% [Still in warranty]

2017-11-29, 10:49 AM


I don't usually utilize the full laptop battery and it stays plugged in for the most part. Today I let the battery go to 0%. After plugging in, it shows 'Plugged in, Charging, 0% available'. It's been several hours since I left it plugged in but it still won't charge up. As soon as I remove the Adapter, the laptop turns off. The product is still a year inside warranty. Is there a diagnosis of the problem? Is it a hardware issue or something else? How do I go about rectifying it? I have exams in the next 2 weeks.

Hi Scorpia_96,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


How was the battery health on Lenovo Setting?

You can check operational charging by connecting it to the charger for 1-2 hours but not turning it on to see if the battery indicator would change from blinking amber to solid white.


Try to generate a battery report:

Click on start and choose command prompt with administrator access.

Type powercfg/energy


You can open the report from C:windows\system32\energy-report.html


Call in technical support to provide the details of what we have here so that they can provide immediate recommendation since you have 2 weeks to make things ok for your exams else you would get stucked connected to a power outlet instead.


Hope this helps answer your query.

Update us how things go.
