Q: HP Envy Battery Problems - not charging when on, charging fu...

I've had my HP Envy laptop for about 3 months, and yesterday I noticed that when it was plugged in it wasn't charging (the battery icon says "plugged in, not charging"). I turned it off overnight, plugged in, and this morning the battery was fully charged. It only seems to not charge when it is turned on. I have tried removing the battery, turning on, deleting the ACPI-compliant control method battery, turning off, and turning back on again (as advised in other forum responses), but with no joy. At first I thought it could either be a battery issue, but the fact it fully charged overnight whilst off would lead me to believe it's not, and is probably a software / settings issue. Any ideas please, I've run out of google search ideas!!

Hi as usual, a problem starts after warranty. And just 3 months, lol.Anyway, when I remove the power cord, it shuts down the laptop.In other words, it is not charging the battery.It can either be the battery or the charging circuit board. is there any way of telling exactly what is wrong before I have to dish out more of my money to HP??? Thank you

We have an HP Envy 15 model G6T85UA #ABA notebook that is recieving a "Not Charging" message for the battery. I have run the HP Assistance and the CMOS battery check and both say they pass.  The power adapter powers the laptop fine and I can use the laptop.  I have installed all of the latest windows updates and I have updated the BIOS.  I have uninstalled the Battery and Power adapter drivers and rebooted. I have tried several different plugs in my house and still have the problem.  I have turned the laptop off overnight and let the battery charge but it fails to charge. When I run the HP assistant batter check the "Not Charging" message is changed to "Charging" but then goes back to "Not Charging" after a few minutes. The battery is not removable unless I take the bottom off the laptop. What do I do next? Thanks, Michael

As if my noisy fan problem wasn't enough (still looking for a solution that doesn't involve sending it back), today I noticed both batteries (the main 6-cell one and the 9-cell slice) were listed as "plugged in, not charging". Clearly not very useful if I want to use it tomorrow on batteries. So I fiddled with the slice connection to see if that was the problem and the battery icon in the taskbar flickered between full (100%), no slice connected and the current not charging. It seems it's a slice issue, as I went into the BIOS and told the Envy to fully charge the main battery before charging the slice and now at least I have the 6-cell at 100%. However, the slice simply won't charge. There's not much about this even after a Google search, but from what I gathered, it seems it's more than just a slice connection issue. I even read about overheating damaging the diode on the motherboard which controls battery charging... Restarting doesn't seem to do anything, nor does altering the connection itself or adjusting BIOS settings. Could this be a software issue that I could fix myself, or do I finally have to figure out a way to get this to HP Korea and (possibly) argue my way for an international warranty to be accepted (which I've also read horror-stories about)?

A:HP Envy Battery "plugged in, not charging"

Similar problem, but I disconnected the slice while the system is on, and set the laptop back down on it- now says "charging." The internal battery is at 100%.

I bought this laptop in June 15, so the warranty just expired a couple of months ago. A few days ago the battery simply stopped charging. It works fine when plugged in (with or without the battery), but when plugged in it displays status as "0% available (plugged in, not charging). When I plug it in the charging light turns orange like it's supposed to, but within 5-10 seconds it turns white, as if it's fully charged. Of course it's not though, as it's at 0%, and if I take the plug out it dies immediately. I have always used only genuine HP charger/battery, and although I understand batteries lose life, having this happen after 14 months is not normal. Is there any way to fix this? I looked at "HP Assistant," but I don't see any battery diagnostics. Thank you for your help!

Hello,I know there is a few post on this particular issue and I will list what I have attempted to do.1. Deleting the charging driver (and also AC Adapter)2. Pulling the plug using windows+b+power3. Updating bios to latest.4. Checked all the wall outlets in my house.5. Used Hp Assist Center/Bios to check battery status.I keep hitting error 601 mainly and have hit error 502 on boot.  In the HP battery checker the both batteries are not detected which is weird.  It's like the battery is not plugged in because both batteries are grayed out, is there any reason why this should be?  I'm really hoping I dont have to replace the  battery or it is covered under the "battery recall" I saw on the hp site somewhere.  This laptop is hardly used by my mother as she really has only been using it for work for the past year-year and a half, I would say nothing over 200 charge cycles.Thank you!

Ok let me cut to the chase: I;ve tried all "normal" test and options to verify what the problem isn't: it's not the battery and not the AC charger .  What I really want to know is whether anyone has solved this problem by replacing the motherboard or changing BIOS. HP has been of no help on this matter, and they actually want me to just buy a new laptop or pay them $350 to let them "fix it".  Two things I find strange are: why have there been no BIOS updates in the 3 years since this laptop was built, and I'm also seeing that there is no download whatsoever for even a reinstall of BIOS; and also, why -- despite the fact that MANY people seem to have had battery/power/charging issues on HP laptops in the past few years (if not longer) -- am I seeing no actual root causes online? I don't want to just throw money at the problem (forgive me, but I'm an engineer), I want to know what's going on and whether I can expect the problem to happen again. I've been through 3 batteries, and 2 chargers and the story is the same: the HP Diagnostics (UEFI?) tell me the battery needs to be replaced.  The battery never gets charged above the charge level it was at when I receive the new battery (70-75% charge for all 3 batteries), and draining the battery to a low level (about 5%) and it doesn't go up.  The laptop is not charging the battery. I get an orange light which tells me it's "trying" to charge the battery, and the behavior is the same for 2 ... Read more

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.

Hi...

I am having a problem with my laptop computer. I figured out that my laptop, when being charged or using the Power Outlet, runs at 100% CPU at times, and slows me down when running and working on some open applications. At first I thought I had tons of spyware or even a virus, and even posted a Hijackthis file here. Nothing was found.
I figured out that my cpu runs at 100% when using the power outlet, or when my computer is chargnig. When I unplug the powercord and use the battery life, everything runs GREAT!!!!! my cpu drops to a normal 4-8% usage with multiple applications running. WEIRD huh? Can anyone relate to this ?? Is this and indication that my battery is going bad???? Can someone help me with this or suggest what is going on? I am running windows XP home edition, and have a compac presario 1500 series.

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.

The problem started from June 2, 2015 about 4 AM (UTC +8:00 Philippine, Manila)

I open my Notebook that morning to check on my e-mails and bills at gmail but it's not powering up. At first I thought that the battery was slightly drained because I saw my sister still using it at midnight. I asked her if she did not plugged in the charger when it is nearly drained but she said she plugged it and it is still full when she shut it down.

It is Li-ion Battery

I tried plugging in the charger to check whether it still has remaining battery. It powered up.
On the taskbar/notifications/running apps it says 8% Available (Plugged In, Charging).
So to check out the problem, I left it turned off charging for about two hours.

Then after two hours it still says 8% Available (Plugged In, Charging)
What the hell is this?! I asked my self.
I installed an app to check the status of the battery (Battery Bar)
Battery Bar says something like this:
Capacity: 2K of 8K mWh (not sure about this)
Charging: 0 mW
Running on AC
7.9% Available
Something like that.

Summary Notes:
1. Does not power up without Charger
2. It detects the Battery saying 8% Available (Plugged In, Charging)
3. Though Plugged In, Charging it does not charge at all because of 0 mW charge rate
4. It turns off when the Charger is plugged out.

The other night, it suddenly turned off and since then, when I plug it in, it says that it's plugged in and charging, but it only stays at 15% and every time I unplug the charger, my computer turns off. I'm not sure what to do, because I don't want to have to keep my computer plugged in for it to work, but I just bought this battery and I'm not sure if I have to buy another.

It's likely the battery is defective. It happens.

If you have the paperwork, see what warranty exists and what you need to do to get a replacement.

I've combined several discussions into one because there are multiple cross-overs of symptoms.
 
After reviewing all the posts, I see there are two types of problems discussed:

Battery charging but only to a certain percentage
Battery intermittently charging

Several people have reported success with their limited battery percentage problem by following the solutions suggested by MarinM and Vladtech.
 
For the intermittent charging, several people have reported that sometimes the battery charges, sometimes it doesn't. I'd like to dig into these reports. I have a few questions I'd like to ask.

When does it charge, when does it not?
Are there any patterns to this?
Does swapping electrical outlets make a difference?
Does the USB 2.0 charging port appear loose?
Does the cable show any signs of damage?
Does the AC adapter show any signs of damage?
When a second device is plugged into the extra USB port on the AC Adapter, does this impact Y3P charging?
Are there any battery error messages?

Thank you for your help,

Hello, I am having an issue with my PC charging. It's been doing fine, until the other day. Even though the battery is at 68%, and the computer is plugged in, it won't charge. If not plugged in, I can't even turn it on, and the yellow power light blinks. The computer itself runs normally once it is up and running. FYI I have had this problem in the past, and I think it self-corrected after a few days. But how can I fix this for good?

Hi, I'm having problems charging my gateway laptop unless I wiggle the charging pin and power brick a certain way. I have tried replacing the charger and battery. It doesn't help. Also If I run on straight AC with no battery the laptop will shut off if it moves due to the contact problem. Does any one know why this happening?

Thanks for the Help.

Also its a gateway t-6859 laptop.

A:Laptop has problems with charging unless I wiggle the charging pin.

how old is the laptop sounds like your ac in port has de-soldered from the psu part of the motherboard. its the most common thing to break on laptops since they get a lot of stress from the cables pulling on them or they are built cheap either way. is is it still in warranty?

Hello, I have a HP 4530s with this problem: If I remove and insert the battery while Windows is running, the battery charges for a little while and then stops charging ("Plugged in, not charging). An orange light is blinking near the power connector. If I remove and insert the battery again, it charges for a while and then stops again. If I turn off Windows and disconnect AC power, if the orange light was blonking, it continues blonking (didn't wait to see how long). If I do this enough times, the battery charges to full. When I disconnect the AC power the laptop works normally on the battery (battery capacity is OK). What I have tried:1. removing the battery, disconnecting AC, holding power button for 40s, reconnecting AC, starting Windows, shutting down Windows, inserting the battery.2. Updating the BIOS to the latest version (F60) - this actually helped because previously the battery was not detected at all if removed and inserted until I did #1.

Hi, I have an HP Pavillion dv6253cl (dv6000 series) with Vista Home, and I'm having problems getting the battery to charge. First off, I should probably say that there was a power outage due to rain and lightning last night when the laptop was in hibernate, and the problem first started this morning when I booted it back up (probably not a coincidence). My HP warranty is expired, so I can't turn to them.

I'm currently running off AC power, and if I were to unplug the cord even for a second, the computer would lose power and shut down (I tried once). The battery is plugged in, but there is literally no power, absolutely 0%.

The blue light around the AC adapter works fine, and when the battery is plugged in, the charging light on the front is lit up as if it is charging. When I take out the battery, the charging light goes out, then turns on when I plug the battery back in. Also, when I plug the battery back in, the battery sign in the taskbar indicates that it is charging, but it stops after maybe 10 seconds.

It will also periodically say in the taskbar that it is 100% charged, but it will go back to 0% after a few seconds. I'm not sure why.

Things I've tried:
1. Shut down computer, remove AC and battery for several minutes, plug both back in, boot up computer. Didn't work.
2. Downloaded HP's "Battery Check" software. It says that it is 0% charged, and under "Health", it says "Replace". Not good.
3. Looked in... Read more

First things first, Dell Inspiron 1501 NOT 1505. Ok? Now, this computer is pretty used, and long lived somewhat at 3 years, one battery. Last year, it completely accpeted no charge. I am on it, using AC power. I wouldn't mind AC power too much, but the power cord providing AC power, is sooooo mucked up. (will it stay in long enough to post this message???) I COULD buy a new battery (100$!!?!?), yet my dad has no job ATM. Any suggestions? PLEASE!

I hope someone here would helped me out in my problem. I bought my Toshiba Portege M900 last 2010. I would always plugin the charger to my laptop when I am at work.

There this one time that when I turned on my laptop, the battery was about to be empty like 7% remaining. I took my charger and plugged it in. After 5 seconds, it turned off without any warning or so.

I checked the lights in the laptop, the "charging light" is not ON despite that the charger was plugged in the socket. I tried to use the charger to my other Toshiba Sattelite Laptop and it worked.

I tried to remove the battery of the Toshiba Portege M900 Laptop from its place and plugged again the charger but still it did not turned ON.

So I took my Toshiba Portege M900 to the nearest service center. But surprisingly when I got there and related the problem to the technician, the laptop turned on after it was plugged. The technician said, he couldn't see any problems because the laptop was charging and it turned on right.

But when I took it home, whenever I remove the charger from the socket of the laptop, it would turn off immediately without any warning eventhough that battery is 100% charged.

And there were times, even if I remove the battery from the laptop but still plug the charger in.. the laptop will still NOT TURN ON.

I tried to check the Toshiba PC Health Monitor, but it would said that the battery is working good. What do you think seems to be the problem? Is it the bat... Read more

A:Portege M900: Power Problems Battery and Charging

> Is it the battery, or the power jack, or the motherboard or the charger

I don?t think its battery issue.
Why? Because the notebook does not power up even if the battery is removed but connected to AC adaptor.

_Power jack?_
Maybe. It could be possible that power jack or connection between the power jack and the motherboard isn?t ok.

_Motherboard?_
It could be an problem with power supply electronic which is part of the motherboard but once again; this is just an idea?

_Charger /AC adaptor?_
Hmm? you said that the AC adaptor has been tested with another notebook and it worked. So possibly it?s not AC adaptor issue.
But are you sure that the other notebook did not run at battery power?
Has the AC adaptor been tested properly? This is an open question.

Another idea:
What BIOS version do you have installed on M900?
Found an BIOS update for the Protege M900
+BIOS version 2.40 upgrade for Portege M900 and Satellite Pro U500( For PSU56*, PSU5C*, PSU5J*, PSU5Q*, PSU86*, PSU8G* and PSU53* ONLY)+
http://pc.toshiba-asia.com/support/drivers/details/30516

There you can find an detail about fixed issue:
+System may not power on without using AC Adapter after the battery has been detached and reattach again. This has been fixed.+

Please check if your Portege M900 is one of the mentioned models and check if an BIOS update is available for your unit.

I have an HP Split, it currently works fine in tablet mode, but when I attach it to the keyboard, the screen becomes unresponsive to touch, the keyboard doesn't work, no does the charger, or the mouse.  The laptop is only a year old, and it is extremely frustrating that many people are having this issue and there does not seem to be a working solution posted anywhere.  Also,  I am dissapointed that HP has no alternative docking system to use with the split to serve as a work-around when this issue occurs.  I depend on my laptop for work, and I am immensely dissapointed.  This will most likely my first and last HP laptop.

Can someone help me with this problem? So I just received my brand new Dell Inspiron 15 3000 and the battery is not charging. It says it's "Plugged In, Charging" but it never goes up and stays at 0%. At first I thought I just need to plug it in for several hours but it's been 5 hours now and still the battery stays at 0%. I tried running the BIOS Diagnostics just to see if there are problems and there's none. The battery status says everything is running normally and the Battery State says it's Idle. I tried draining the flea power several times, removing and reattaching the battery, but to no avail. I'm getting really frustrated and I'm really close to throwing this laptop back to Dell. 
I read somewhere that I have to update the BIOS but it won't update unless the battery is charged at least 10%. Someone also suggested that Windows 8.1 is causing the problem. I haven't even started using this laptop and it's already giving me a *** ton of problems. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks guys! :)

Hello.  I would be grateful if someone can help me with solving the following battery issue.
My XPS13 9343 (with Windows 10, 2015 model) recently stopped charging when connected.  I have conducted BIOS test, stress test, system test, battery test recommended on Dell forum, but could not find any issues.
Then ran device manager and checked & updated drivers, tested for virus, scanned the system, but could not detect any issues.
Lights on AC adopter is on (static) , and the front light under the touch pad turn on white briefly when connected then turn off immediately when plugged in (when disconnected, orange light comes on).
It seems charging is disabled...I might have touched keys without realizing (I checked whether there were hot key to enable/disable charging, but could not find one).
Since it is an ultrabook, and the battery has no issues, I have not opened the back to take out the battery.
I brew into the connecting hole, but it did not solve the issue.
Please help!

Dear ejn63,
Thank you very much for the quick reply.
I just did F2 at powerup and found the adapter was displayed as 'Unknown.'
I would order the new AC adapter today and see how it goes.
Will report when solved.
Thank you again.

Hey @EnigmaDimirti, Welcome to the forums. I'm here to help. I would strongly suggest Testing and Calibrating the Battery. Should that not solve the issue, I would suggest calling in for support to see about replacing the battery, as it should not be displaying "no battery is pluged in" when you run a battery check. Please use the following http://www.hp.com/contacthp and create a case for your issue and contact HP. If you live outside the US/Canada, please click the link below to get the contact information for your region.http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html If this helps, please hit that Thumbs Up, and Accept as Solution. Cheers,TechSurge.
