Earlier today, I had shut the lid on my Chromebook (putting it into standby mode) and had put it away. At this point it had full power. About half an hour later, I had opened it up again, but it had shut off, and I coudn't get it to turn on again until I plugged it in to auxilary power. When it revived, it still had full battery, but had forgotten the details of the network until I had signed in. This is similar to another issue, wherein the system will occasionally stop opening and running user-installed applications and block any access to local storage (such as viewing and downloading files), citing lack of permission (which does not apply otherwise), until restarting and logging in again. My device is fully up-to-date on the stable update stream. Why am I having these issues? Are there any ways to fix this permanently (aside from purchasing a different device)?

Hi! I have 4 years old Lenovo Yoga Ideapad 13.  The problems started couple weeks ago, when the computer wouldn't run or start up without being plugged in. I followed some other people's advice and got a new battery. It seemed to fix to problem for while. Now few weeks after the same problem stands with the new battery. It won't start or run, but when plugged in it says the battery is 100% and charging.   I tried checking if the charger isn't working, but it charges all fine on my other Yoga, which has the same charger model. So please note that this isn't the common problem that is seen here on the forums, that the battery doesnt charge. I'm pretty frustrated, as this problem persists even though I changed the battery. Anyone have ideas? I figured it could have something to do with the battery wire connecting battery to the motherboard, but there doesn't seem to be any defects or loose wires.  However, I tried taking off the battery connection wire when plugged in, and then I get the message "No battery detected" instead of the regular "100% Fully charged". Any help is appreciated.

HI,

Has any one modified a Power Suply to Take 12 volt DC Input?

I would very much like to hear from you, or any one you may of heard of that has done this.

I wanted to Put a desktop case etc. in my car and use it to listen to music...

Thanks to anyone who replies...
 

A:DC Input Power Supply (12 volt input)

A standard Computer PSU rectifies the incoming mains (120 or 240 volt) and the "chops" it in a switchmode type power conversion.

Therefore as it starts with a high DC voltage (120 or 240 V AC rectified to DC) there is no easy conversion to make it use 12 V instead. Without a complete rebuild and redesign of the PSU.

By far the cheapest and easiest way is to use an off-the-shelf 12 V inverter that converts 12V to 120 or 240 V AC, and then you dont need to bother rebuilding the power supply from scratch.

Has the advantage of easily sourced power supply units for the PC. You would likely get away with a small 200 Watt unit.

My Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 doesn't recognize charger any more. And unfortunately my warranty expired 2 month ago.It was plugged in and working in the morning, but then in the afternoon I noticed that it was running on the battery only. It wont start without battery (just charger plugged in).
1. So here what I have done to debug. Me and my brother, we have purchased the same Dell laptops at the same time a year and a bit ago. This is why for a debugging purposes it was good.I took my charger and plugged in to his computer. And it works. Definitely not the charger issue I guess. And when I plug charger in to my computer, green light is still on the charger. And I have the original charger that came with the laptop.
2. Now, laptop works on the battery only, so this means that motherboard is working. I guess.
3. Next thing I did was unplugged charger and removed the battery from the laptop. Then I pushed and hold "Power" button for 45 seconds to discharge a flea charge. Plugged charger back in but laptop wont start.
4. Next I started laptop on the battery, went to BIOS and checked if the charger is recognized in the BIOS. No, it doesn't recognize charger. So, if it is not a charger then what else can it be?

A:Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 doesn't work with charger. Charger is not recognized. Not charger problem.

Hi CJ777,
Thanks for reaching out with your query. You pretty much figured out all points of failure. Good job.
If the adapter is not detected in BIOS, it most likely is an issue with the mother board. In the BIOS set up, AC adapter should show up as 65w or 90w. If the adapter status is 'None' or 'Unknown Device Installed', it indicates that the mother board is not detecting the adapter for which the battery is not getting charged. Once the battery charge drains, I'm sure the adapter will not charge it again. Replacing the system board should resolve this issue.

I really don't want to take it into the shop so if anyone knows what's going on or knows how to fix this please let me know! It started about a month ago when it would say that it was 100% charged so I would take it off the charger and it would immediately drop to 6%. About a week ina half went by and when I would take it off the cord and it would say 6% it would die a few seconds after. Now it dies immediately, before I even have the charger completely taken out.

I purchased a refurbished Yoga 13 from the Lenovo outlet in January. The charging port broke shortly after, but it still charged just fine. The center post in the charging port separated from rest of the port. It still works fine to this day, but it won't last forever and I want to get it fixed before my warranty is up. That side of the laptop is separated a little, like  screw isn't attached properly or something and I feel this is most likely the reason it was damaged. Will this be covered under my warranty, and if it is not where do I find a replacement part so I can repair it myself? Thank you.

A:Yoga 13 Charger port

hi SephirothWGP,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Physical damages are not usually covered under the warranty (i.e. cracked screen, bent pins, etc.) but in your case, if you think that there's something internal that caused the charging port issue then I recommend you contact lenovo to report the issue (they'll probably ask you to send the unit in for service and have a technician take a look at it to see if it's covered or not).
 
In the event that it's not covered, you can fix the charing port by replacing the following part:
 
145500046 - CABLE DC-IN_JACK_MOCHA2_ASSY
 
You can get spare parts via the lenovo spare parts website - http://www.lenovospareparts.com (if a part is out of stock, click Help on the upper right corner and fillout the contact form for an ETA). Doing a google search should give you third party websites that also sells the same part - like this one.
 
 
Hope this helps

Finding an awkward angle to get some charge. But that won't work anymore.Please advise, thanks..

Welcome to the forum.
 
From your description of the problem it would seem that the wiring in the charger has become defective. Due to the potential safety hazard I would stop using it.
 
If your Y900 is still under warranty I would contact Lenovo to get a replacement. Otherwise you'll have to buy a new charger.

Not weird.  The 720 needs 20V to charge.  If your adapter can't provide that or correctly negotiate that it's not surprising that it doesn't work.

Hi Nixlas,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
If you have active warranty then it would be best to have it reported to technical support.
You may also proceed checking if the charger is the problem following the power checkout guide here (page 21) if there is no other compatible charger available.
 
Common to power issue is the DC in port that also be worth checking for loose contact specially if the machine works with battery before the power got depleted.
 
I have this helps answer your query.
Update us how it goes.

A year ago I bought a Lenovo Yoga 500 from a retailer in Greece.After three or four months it showed problems (like not powering up, or not starting up).I had it fixed at a verified service agent in Greece for Lenovo (CPI) with no further explanation ( but they also deleted all my files without warning - very unprofessional! ) without taking any responsibility for this.After five or six months, it showed the same problems again, so I gave it again to the same service store. They fixed it again. When they gave it back to me, there was a note: "The charger is from another Lenovo product and not from Lenovo Yoga 500 (it does not have grounding). The charger I have is similar to the following one: The details of charger is Model Number: ADLX65SDC2AOutput: 20V 3.25ANo groundingwhile my lenovo Yoga on the bottom it says 20V 2.25A I asked them, why don't they provide me with the correct charger, and their reply is that I have to speak with the retailer who sold me the netbook. So I went over to the store and asked them to solve the issue. Their reply was that they could not cover the insurance (2 years) on chargers, but only for notebook parts. After my arguments and my disagreement with their approach, they offered me two solutions:1) Either they will speak with CPI to find out what's going on or2) They will give me a new charger with a 40% cut on the price. I disagreed again, and finally they told me that they would unoficcialy swap my old charger with another one (used)...

I've purchased FOUR replacement cords now for my computer.   Each one, including the original, has developed the same problem.   It eventually won't connect to the wall outlet unless I jiggle it just right.  And then I have to make sure I don't jiggle or else the computer will come unplugged.  It eventually makes a sparking noise sometimes when I plug it in.   And sometimes I have even seen a spark.   This surely has to be a fire hazzard.   Does anyone else have this problem?   I wonder if Lenova shouldn't recall these cords.   These were all Lenova brand cords purchased through Best Buy.  I just bought my next replacement today, and I'm sure it will develop the same problem.
