Thinkpad Yoga 13 shuts down when I remove charger.

Q: Thinkpad Yoga 13 shuts down when I remove charger.

Laptop works fine on charger but as soon as I remove the charger it shuts off. I tried a different battery and charging cable but it still doesn't work. It won't even charge the battery, there seems to be an X symbol where the battery is? It doesn't seem like it detecting the battery at all. Anyone got an idea what it could be?

Hi!I have Samsung Galaxy S8. It have USB Type-C connector and charger which can deliver up to ~18W(?). I know from some sources that I can charge my phone via Laptop charger (it will step down voltages and amps accordingly). But I'm curious if it will work another way around. So if I can charge X1 Yoga 2 with Samsung Galaxy S8 charger?Best RegardsTomas.

Hi Sanjay Phirke,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I think there might be some loose contact between internal battery and the system board.
 
Try with resetting the system from Emergency reset hole, which will be at the bottom of the laptop.

Hope this helps.

When shutting down the laptop after a few hours of use, the OS (win10 x64) will shutdown normally, but the red led on the thinkpad logo will remain on. (same whether im on battery, on plugged in). I noticed this issue after finding out my fully charged battery was completely empty when I tried turning it on. However, when I only use the laptop for at most an hour or less and shut down, It will be fine and everything will be powered off. This problem only occurs during long hours of use and then I would have to hold the power button to completely shutdown. What I have tried so far:Disabling Hibernate, SleepUpdated Bios to GQET47WW (1.27) 9/23/2015Disabled Fast Startup* *What I have noticed after disabling fast startup was that before, it would usually blink red until the battery is completely discharged. After disabling fast startup, the problem still occurs but instead the LED is a solid RED until the battery is discharged. Are there any other options I can use to fix this?

Lenovo ThinkPads has a feature where it would turn off the hard drive when it detects it's being dropped. But I don't think that's present on SSDs because they don't rely on mechanical platers. I'd suggest getting the unit repaired with Lenovo. Visit http://support.lenovo.com

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.

Then I had one other issue, every time I remove the charger from the laptop, my laptop automatically shuts down. Even with 100% battery. I dont' know what the cause of this is, but I do know I was not messing with the battery. This laptop is about 2 months old, and I don't know what else to do.

While it's possible the battery was damaged, it's far more likely the problem is a blown charge circuit on the system board.
Next logical step - replace the mainboard.

Hi, I?m wondering if it?s ok to use a 230 W charger for my P1 Thinkpad. since I?m having a P70 as well I don?t want to drag around 2 chargers. So I thought I could use the 230W charger for both the P70 and the P1.Would that be a problem somehow - like harming the battery of the P1 or would any electronics be damaged or anything else??Just to mention it, the P1 came with a 135W charger. merci in advance A

A:Use a 230W charger for the P1 Thinkpad

As long as they use the same connector and provide the same DC voltage that should be fine.  The P1 will only draw what it needs.

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?
5. Laptop doesn't have any strange smells so I'm not sure if anything happened with the motherboard, but I would assume mother board is ok because it works of the battery.

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 have a Thinkpad T540 from work, and a private Ideapad 510. I'm looking for a wall charger solution that can be used for any of these laptops, which I could keep in my bag, regardless of which laptop I take with me. Both use 20V power. The Thinkpad charger produces 4.5A (90W), I think that power source should work fine with the Ideapad that requires just 3.25A (65W). Is there a solution to convert the Thinkpad's rectangular plug (slim tip) to the the very small power plug used by the Ideapad 510 (round, 4mm outer, 1.7mm inner) ? Alternatively, is there any universal charger available, which offers both plugs? Thanks,Kai

Hello. I have a plan to buy a T460 during the upcoming Christmas sales. I also want to buy an extra battery with it. As a business person who has to travel a lot, i would love to keep both of my batteries fully charged all the times. External battery chargers are hard to find and i, after a lot of search, found one. An old Lenovo support document (https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht037009) shows a list of batteries that can be charged using that charger. But T460's Thinkpad 68+ 6 cell 72 Wh battery is not in that list. And, that doc says that i will need a 65W ac power adapter for charging. But T460 comes with 45W power adapter. So my questions are: 1) Can i charge T460's battery with the external charger? 2) Will 45W power adapter be enough or do i have to buy a 65W one? Thank you very much in advance for your time.

Hi, I got an Apple 30W USB-C (power delivery of 1.5A @ 20V) power adapter and I though I could use it with my ThinkPad T470s (which came with a 45W adapter which broke). Unfortunately, it only seems to be able to charge it when the laptop is off / in sleep mode. I know it's not going to be able to charge the laptop as fast as the original 45W adapter, but I thought it would be able to provide at least some power. Is there a way to make the laptop charge from this adapter when running? I'm not using any especially demanding programs anyway.

Hi,I need a new charger for my thnkpad edge e145 but I'm a bit worried about the specs on the chargers that I have found.On my battery it says that the voltage is 10.8V and current is 5.8Ah but all the adapters I have found that are supposed to be compatible with my laptop have a voltage around 20V and current around 4.5A. For example this one: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-AJP-IBM-Lenovo-THINKPAD-EDGE-E145-20BCA00L-90W-Ac-Adapter-Charger... Since I don't know anything about how laptop batteries and chargers work I have no idea if a charger with those specs will work for my laptop. Most forums I have looked at seems to suggest that if the current is to low on the adapter it will overheat or not work at all and that to much voltage in the adapter could damage the laptop. Could someone tell me if a charger like this will be safe to use with my laptop? Unfortunately I don't have the charger that came with the laptop anymore so I can't compare it to the new ones. I also couldn't find any information on the adapter on lenovos website or in my hardware maintence manual.

 In the course of using my 13 (Type 20GJ, 20GK) Laptop (ThinkPad), my external battery charger got damaged. Part of the male end that goes into the computer to charge it has somehow split in half; as a result of this, it no longer fits into my computer and my computer doesn't charge.  So my questions are as follows:1) Instead an AC Adapter model # ADLX45DLC2A, could I temporarily use a replacement AC charger model # ADLX90NCC2A that is rated at a slightly higher amperage? Would using it cause problems for my computer? 2) If not, how would I go about getting a replacement AC charger? Thanks for responding to this in advance.

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.

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.
