Ideapad Flex 14: "Plugged in, not charging" notice...

Q: Ideapad Flex 14: "Plugged in, not charging" notice...

Hello, I have a two year old Ideapad Flex 14 which is having some battery issues. Specifically, the battery light is flashing red, and when I plug in my laptop, the status says ?plugged in, not charging.? When plugged in, it stays at roughly the same battery level, though it has been gradually losing battery despite being plugged in over the last few days (this has been going on for five days or so now). It is at 5% battery now, and I?m not sure what to do to make it charge. I?ve tried taking out the battery and putting it back multiple times, but am not really sure what else to try ? I?m out of the country until December, so I haven?t been able to find a repair place to get it fixed yet... Any suggestions how to fix this?? Annie

 For the past week or so when I have my computer plugged in always remains "plugged in, not charging", but keeps maintains life when plugged in. The lenovo power settings give feedback that the battery is in good condition and that the adapter is recognized. I already checked the lenovo conservation setting which is off, but I am not quite for sure how else to troubleshoot the issue.

Hi everyone! I have a Flex 2-14. I had upgraded from Windows 8.1 to 10. After that my battery is no more charging. Message is "plugged in, not charging".  I had tried:- Lenovo Energy Management --> change the setting from Optimized Battery Health , to Maximum Battery Life  - Lenovo OneKey Optimiser --> change the setting from Conservation Mode to Normal Mode- reverted to Windows 8.1 OneKey Optimiser reports: Battery status is good; Battery capacity is good; Adapter status is good.Battery does not charge even when notebook is stopped but plugged to mains. Now battery is at 0%. Maybe related to this: i can't upgrade BIOS. Now the bios is A0CN21WW.Downloaded A0CN37WW. Extracted files. Removed /cpb 30 from winflash64.bat (in order to remove battery check). Run Install.exe from c:\BIOS\A0CN37WW. Notebook shutdown, remains 2-3 minutes with black screen, and then reboots but the bios remains the same A0CN21WW. Could be a faulty BIOS? How can i force update it? Thanks for any suggestion.

Could anyone please advise a solution: my Lenovo Flex 2-14 (Windows 8) is suddenly showing "plugged in, not charging" message. It is completely impossible to use it if it is not plugged in, as soon as you unplug it just goes dead. I have already tried the uninstall Microsoft AC Adapter way and it didn't help. Has anyone else had this exact issue? Thank you!

About three days ago my Flex 3 1480 stopped charging its battery. This message appears above the taskbar battery icon:  ?0% available - plugged in, charging."  The computer now only comes on with the ac power adapter plugged in. I have used another adapter (identical specs) with the same negative result on my computer.  My adapter works fine on the other computer. These are fixes recommended at various internet sites that I have tried without success: System restore to a point several days before problem appeared.Uninstalled both battery drivers in Device Manager and restart reinstalled - three times. The battery is internal so I would like to fix without having to remove the battery if possible. Resetting the battery and resetting the bios are on-line recommendations that I don?t really know how to do safely. In searching the Lenovo site, I have been unable to find this problem addressed. The Lenovo Vantage Hardware Scan shows all in good order ? the battery itself is rated Good. The Flex 3 is 2 years old and is now out of warranty. Any help to correct and get the battery charging would be appreciated. Thank you, GB

I have the flex 2 and the only time my laptop charges is when it is completely turned off. The battery life is also very short, even when I am using my laptop it says "plugged in, charging" but the battery life continues to go down, it only lasts about an hour or two WHILE BEING PLUGGED IN. And it takes a couple hours to fully charge when i have it turned off, i usually plug it in at night and in the morning it will be a full charge. I have only had this laptop about 4 months, it is not old, and I have not been over using it. Everything else functions perfectly fine on it and i love it, but this is a huge problem when i am trying to get school work done. this has been going on a few weeks now. Why is this happening is there something i can do to fix it?

I've had my Lenovo Flex 2-15 for about two years and it has always charged perfectly fine. Today it started telling me that the computer is "plugged in, not charging". It was working normally as of this morning (took it to class and then recharged it afterward), but as of this evening it's not charging.
 
I have tried multiple solutions:
 

Restarting
Uninstalling and reinstalling / updating battery drivers
Checking power management options (no problems there)

I am not able to remove the battery as the Flex doesn't allow me to do so. It's currently at 94%, and I'm afraid to run it all the way down because it looks like it won't charge back up again.
 
If anyone has any advice, it would be very welcome. Thanks!

I have a Lenovo Flex 3 1480 with Intel I7.  I was getting a message that says "plugged in charging" but the battery charge was staying at 60% and not increasing. Lenovo techs said the battery must be bad so I ordered and installed a new, Lenovo brand battery.  I get the same condition... placing the cursor over the battery symbol gives a status message of "40% available, plugged in, charging" but the battery charge never increases, even after shutting off the computer down and leaving it plugged in overnight. The laptop was a year old and therefore out of warranty last November, 2016. HELP!

So this is the same problem of "plugged in, not charging" expect I have tried every possible solutions there is, my ideapad is barely a month old and it's already having issues. My conservation mode is turned off and there is no rreason to why my battery shouldn't be charging, I even tried this old idea of uninstalling the battery driver and letting Windows re detect it but that didn't work either, is there something that I missed and should recheck of fix or is my last option is returning the whole laptop for a fix?

Hi Mina,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
1)  Shut down the computer.
2)  With the battery in (but AC adapter removed), attempt to turn on the computer by holding down the power button for 30 sec. This should not turn on the computer.
3)  Remove the battery.
4)  Again, attempt to turn on the computer (AC adapter not plugged in) by holding down the power button for 30 sec.  This should not turn on the computer either.
5)  Replace battery, plug in the AC adapter, and turn on the computer.  The battery should begin charging.
 
I hope the above information helps.
 
Regards,
Shashi

Hello!I write here with a problem that I have since the day before yesterday.When my Laptop is on and the charger is plugged in, the battery won't charge, giving the notification "plugged in, not charging". Laptop works like the charger wasn't plugged - energy drains from battery.I suppose that is a software problem, because when laptop is turned off or hibernated it charges normally.Formating didn't help at all.Microsoft support told me to recalibrate battery - didn't work.Lenovo support told me to try another charger in service - I will try if nothing else works.Maybe someone had the problem like that and solved it without going to service, which I want to keep as a last resort solution.Thanks in advance!

So I bought this laptop 3 days ago. It seems like it has a charging problem. It sometimes charges when I let the laptop in sleep mode or close the lid. I sometimes get a full charge but then, when I'm using it, it just stops charging for no reason. To "force charge" it, I discovered that if I first unplug the charger from the laptop itself, then disconnect the cable from the power brick, plug it back in the laptop and connect the brick back again, it seems to charge for around 4 more minutes. I tried updateing the BIOS with the support from the official Lenovo support site (this one) but it does not work. I heard about the removing the battery and pressing the power button but I can't remove the battery.  The power brick and charger are original and seem to work fine. Should I try buying another charger? Please resond to this as I'm desperate. Thanks much !

Hi AhmedMagdyy,Have checked in Lenovo Settings app if Conservation Mode is enabled. Conversation mode is under the battery icon of the app. If enabled, kindly disable the feature. Conservation mode helps extend the battery life of the tablet/laptop by limiting the max charge the battery can hold. Hope this helps.Cheers,

Ok so a bit over a week ago I bought my ideapad 2 in 1 and about two-three days ago I noticed the battery was at 95 %. I keep it plugged in but it's not charging. Right now it's at 94% but that's probably because I moved it out of my room where I usually keep it to work in the dining room for a bit.Does anyone know how to fix it without removing the battery because I think I have to unscrew the back to get to it and I really would rather not do that or is it normal for the battery to be at a 94-95% charge. I really am hoping I don't have to bring it in to Best Buy because I just bought this and I can't financially afford to get it fixed right now

Hello, I noticed this afternoon that the battery indicator in the system tray was at less than full and the status message reads "95% - Plugged in, not charging." This was not the case previously, and I haven't changed any battery or system settings that would affect this. I've only owned the computer for about a month or two and I'm concerned that there may be a problem with the battery. I looked up this issue online and attempted to uninstall and reinstall the driver that affects battery control in System Settings, but there was no change to this behaviour. Is there a way to test if the battery is damaged? What other problems could I be having that would produce this effect?

I have an IdeaPad 500.  The A/C charger is "plugged in" and the icon says it is "charging" but there is no charge to the battery, which is now at 53% (it was 55% yesterday).   I have gone to the forum and done what they suggest (e.g. turned off the Conservation Mode).  Unlike most questions on the forum, my system says "charging" rather than "not charging".  And because it is an IdeaPad, I cannot remove the battery (at least not without opening up the case).  I am a bit worried this is a hardware/battery failure -- but I hope this forum might give me a software fix

I have a 3-year-old Toshiba satellite C655 with Windows 7. Last night, after I restarted it for updates, the battery symbol read "Plugged in, not charging".
This is NOT the first time this happened to my computer. A couple months ago, the same notice appeared. At that point in time I did some combination of shutting down, removing battery, unplugging etc. and it was fixed. Since then I have gotten a new AC adapter because my old one had a short.
Anyway, I looked around on the internet, tried a few things, and eventually came across these instuctions:
1. Disconnect AC, 2. Shutdown, 3. Remove battery, 4. Connect AC, 5. Startup, 6. Uninstall AC Compliant control method, 7. Shutdown, 8. Disconnect AC, 9. Insert battery, 10. Connect AC, 11. Startup.
Yay! It worked. I moved my computer from one location to another and it was still working. However, when I got on the following morning, it was back to the message "Plugged in, not charging". Also, the message came up again that I needed to restart my computer for updates even though I had done this the night before.
I retried the previous fix. No luck. I tried some other suggestions. No luck. In the meantime, I've taken out my battery so it doesn't die (my computer works with only the AC in, as well as with only the battery in, or with both). However, I use my computer a lot and I'm often in situations were plugging it in is not an option (I also don't want it to shut down every time I unplug it... Read more

Pretty much what it says in the title.  I have recently been needing to use my Notebook for extended periods of time, and I had found that, despite the laptop reconizing that the charging cord is in, it fails to charge while in use and only charges when the computer is hibernating or when then laptop shuts down. I've taken a look at the battery settings, including Conservation Mode which seems to cause this type of problem, but I've had little to no luck fixing to problem. I would really appreciate if someone could give me some advice on how to fix the issue, as it is getting in the way of my work having to use it for only an hour, then have it charge for an hour.

Hello, I have a 3 yr old Ideapad Z510(that came with Win8)which worked absolutely fine until recently. If I plug in the charger when the laptop is on, it abruptly turns off and would never boot again until I remove the charger. However, this is not how it behaves every time. There are some rare instances where I could still operate the machine with charger plugged in.  When turned off, battery is charging and also goes to full 100%. When turned on(battery mode) it does not drain rapidly - I could still get a fairly decent stand up time. So I am assuming the battery is good. I don't see any thermal issues either. Things I tried:-------------- > Tried with a different charger - no help.> Updated the firmware - no help.> Update the entire driver pack - no help.> Applied windows patches, reinstalled and also upgraded windows to Win 10 - no help.> Reseated the battery and associated cables - no help.  I am not sure if there is anything that I could do to at least diagonize the problem before I give it to the service station. Any pointers on this is much appreciated   Thanks much in advance.

I was using my laptop here one day and it was working fine, but it was unable to charge for some reason and ended up shutting down so I went to bed. The next morning I tried turning it on, but it was dead. I have tried a different charger as my sister also has a lenovo laptop, but this did not work either. I would think if the battery was the problem, the laptop should still be working with the charger in? I have tried calling support line several times with no answer, the warranty has gone out and I forgot where i bought the laptop sadly.

Hi ! Over the past two weeks I've spent my time troubleshooting why my recently (used) bought X240 is not charging the internal battery. Short timeline: 1. Bought used X240 in good condition but with dead internal and external battery - working well when using power supply.2. Came home and tested that thing -> both batteries show "0% - not charging" (with Win10Pro installed) *suprise, surprise*3. Ordered both new internal and external battery.4. External battery came 1.5 weeks ago. Installed it and worked like a charm (Battery 2 (external): X%, charging).5. Internal battery came the day before yesterday. Installed it and did not work -> "Battery 1: 53% - plugged in, charging - Battery 2: 6% - plugged in, not charging)6. Waited the recommended 6-12 hours like it was written in the "manual" to get it fully charged.7. Next morning -> Batterystatus unchanged (see point 5) ... It's stuck at 53%. Though the status says it's charging, it doesn't.8. Simply tried out what's going to happen when I pull the cable of the power supply -> Notebook instant off *hmmm*9. As the external battery was obviously blocked from charging by the internal (as it was not charged), I've taken out the internal battery again and et voila, external battery is charging again.I've tried to remove both batteries and perform the "Magic Trick" (press the main power switch for 30 secs) and I've also pushed the "reset" switch on the backside near the battery. Sadly without any result ;-(... Read more

Hi Guys, I have had to change my battery, got a brand new DELL battery but I can't get it to charge...I'm running Windows 10 PRO. I have tried the fixes listed above but unfortunately NONE has solved my problem. Any suggestions?

A:XPS 12 9Q23 Power Charging Disabled / Plugged in, NOT CHARGING

Hi DAEMONROD.
Where have you purchased the battery from? Does the old battery charge fine when plugged in?
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system? Could you test with another power adapter if possible? 
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter plugged in. Also, wiggle the adapter cable at the end and see if the status changes in BIOS at any point. Check the battery health in BIOS (if applicable).
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
Test another power adapter and check. If the adapter fits in loose, then the dc port needs to be replaced. You would need this part.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

i have been using this laptop for 2 years i get it from my friend .

from start it always charges battery upto 56 percent.

and i thought that there is problem in the battery cell and in few months battery backup becomes very short.

Yesterday i bought a new battery for my laptop but it is giving me the same problem which i had with my previous battery.

So this is not battery problem.



Things i have tried



1)Removing battery and uninstalling windows ac adaptor from Device manager.

2)Removing both battery and power Adaptor and pushing the power button for 20 sec if there is any residuel current.



Nothing has worked for me so far.

I would be thankful for your guidance.

Now it is stuck on 2% of charge from 5 days and it's plugged in!
The laptop says that the battery is charging, but actually it is not charging and the charge level is the same from days
I looked up some solutions online like uninstalling ACPI microsof from Device manager and reboot the laptop..It did not work
"Jauge de batterie" which is an integrated software related to DELL, says that the battery health is good and that my battery is working properly
The laptop works fine with only the charger plugged in and battery out
PS: the laptop heats usually but i think it did not affect the battery at all since it was working fine and the charge took me about at minimum 30 min on high performance to be emptyed before this happens.
Please, i'm seeking for help
I hope you can ... Read more

A:Battery says: Charging, but it is not actually charging while plugged in and is stuck in 2% for 5 days !

First thing to check is wherther the sysetm recognizes the AC adapter - F2 at powerup to check that.
If it doesn't, try a new Dell OEM AC adapter - if that doesn't fix the issue, replace the DC jack board, and if that doesn't solve it, the mainboard.  Note:  you MUST use a Dell adapter - NOT a third party unit.
If the system DOES recognize the AC adapter, but won't charge the battery, chances are the battery is bad and will need to be replaced.
You cannot solve the issue without checking and, if necessary, replacing these parts.

Hi my laptop today morning had an issue. When I plugged my charger I was not charging and there was no indication of being charged. Even the charging indicator light didn't show up when connected. I tried all the procedures of connecting charger with battery plugged out it didn't boot. And my laptop s updated until today. Any help????

A:Laptop no charging no signs of plugged in when plugged

Hello Remove the charger and the battery press and hold the power button for 30 secs. if in case the unit is not powering on with only the charger then the charging port is faulty, contact hp #hpexpertday

Hi,
I have a dell xps 12, bought in 2012. Recently the battery stopped charging. The battery shows 0%, so I have to be plugged in to turn the laptop on. When it is on, the battery icon on the task bar says "plugged in, charging" but after a day it is still 0%.
Since then I bought a new battery. Just fitted it, but now the battery icon on the task bar says "plugged in, not charging". Furthermore, when I Fn+F3 to show the battery meter, it says "battery charging diabled". There is no option here to turn battery charging on. Nor is there an option to enable battery charging in BIOS. 
BIOS does show battery performing normally, so does the battery meter (Fn+F3). BIOS also shows AC adapter as 45W, which is the original adapter.
Any help is appreciated!

A:Battery stop charging at 45%, plugged in, not charging

Does the system correctly identify the AC adapter, or does it show "unknown"?  F2 at powerup to check.
Is the battery the original one that arrived with the system?
