Hi. I recently bought a Lenovo Yoga 500 laptop, and I'm quite disappointed. When I plug in my charger, 9/10 times it starts to charge, then immediately stop charging, then charge again for a second. This results in never charging. Eventually it charges normally, but it's completely random and sometimes requires 5+ restarts. I need this laptop for school so taking it off for repair is hard for me but I will do it if there is no other way. I got a second charger from a friend and this still occurs, so the problem isn't with the charger. Anyone have any idea for a fix? Thanks

I was recently given a Yoga 910 which has barely been used and it seems that i cant charge it unless its off. When its powered on and plugged in it just says its on battery.  I preformed the following stuff: I thought it could be the charger but i tried my macbook pro 15inch USB c charger on it with the same results. Ive tried to reinstall the OS but that didnt work. I took off the back plate and removed the battery then held the power button for 30 seconds but that also didnt work. Has anyone had this issue and fixed it?Its such a nice laptop i would like to get some use out of it. I even tried to update the bios but the software says it has to be plugged in to do that.

Earlier today, my Yoga 3 Pro decided to stop charging.  When plugged in, the battery continues to drain as if it was not plugged in.  I have tested the A/C adapter by plugging in my phone with a micro USB and that worked fine, and the USB charging slot works when my wireless mouse is plugged into it, so I assume it must be the strange Y3P USB cable that is not working.   Would a normal USB to USB cable work for charging my laptop?  If not, how do I replace that "kink" USB cable?  I haven't seen any for sale anywhere and I'd rather not have to pay $40 for a whole new charger on the Lenovo site if the cable is the only issue.

A:Yoga 3 Pro Not Charging

Hello and welcome,
 
The Y3P and its charger need that special cable.  The charger and laptop have an extra set of pins in the USB sockets that pass 20V to charge the laptop.  A standard USB cable doesn't support those extra contacts.  The charger also provides 5V on the standart USB pins.
 
Your test of the charger with a your phone shows that the 5V portion of the charger is working but doesn't verify the 20V portion.  It's possible that the charger is bad.
 
When you plug the laptop and charger together does the battery icon indicate that AC power is attached?  You could have a bad charger, a bad cable, a bad laptop connector (or other component) or the battery management software could be messed up.
 
Sorry I don't have an easy test or fix.  It may be necessary to actually swap the cable and charger to diagnose this one.
 
[edit] The Y3P is a fairly new machine.  If this is under warranty, support should be able to help you:  1-877-4-Lenovo, 1-877-453-6686

Upon reconnecting it started charging for a few seconds then stopped again. I doesnt seem to be losing power when plugged in and I tried letting it run out of power and then hoping for better results. Once the battery was empty and the laptop went out I plugged it in again and it went up to 33%, but now it stopped charging again.The laptop used to be a showcased model but was reset to factory settings and the battery is in almost perfect shape.Is there a way to fix this issue?

I have an Yoga 500 that idles charging, meaning that being working on AC power it will hold 15% but not charge further then that. Sometimes but not allways it will hung in between balance mode and power saving mode. The battery seams to be fine as attached test log. I have noticed that the internal power cable is somehow damaged and ordered a new one, but have been reading about faulty motherboards and wonder if this would be one of them as I just got the laptop and I don't know if the previous owner ever took it back to lenovo. I wonder if anyone had similar problems and if there is any way of sorting it out.

What does it mean when the charger indicator is solid white?What is the best way to maintain battery life?

A:Charging X1 Yoga gen 3

Solid white means fully charged or nearly so.  There is no "best" strategy.  It depends on how often and how long you use it when it is plugged in.  I use mine mostly on battery and I plug it in at night to charge.  I have it set in Vantage to start charging at 70% and stop at 98%.

A:Yoga 2 Pro Battery not charging

I've experienced this a couple times on my new Yoga 2 as well. The first instance, it just started charging again after about an hour of use. The second time, I rebooted after about an hour of it being plugged in and not charging, and once I reached the desktop, the battery showed 43%, but still not charging.. So i guess it was actually charging the whole time without showing it?After about 2 days of ownership, I've decided to do a clean install of windows 8.1 followed by loading all the necessary drivers listed on lenovo's product page, and I can happily say this 0% plugged in not charging thing hasn't happened again.

I've just run into the problem again of my X1 Yoga 3rd Gen not charging when it's turned off / shut down. The red charging light comes on, but when I leave the laptop charging overnight & come back to it the next day, it hasn't charged at all.  This used to happen a lot when I first got the machine, but hasn't happened in several months, so I thought it was fixed. It's only started happening again today, and the one change that happened is Windows asked me last night to Update & Shut Down when I turned it off.  When I turned the machine back on today, it completed installing the updates, but I noticed the battery was still only at 57% with the red charging light on.  Perhaps the machine isn't able to charge when Windows is in the middle of an updating process? If it's tied to the particular updates, last night's update was installing KB4494441 (2019-05 Cumulative update for Windows 1809), as well as KB4497932 (Adobe Flash update) and KB4499405 (Cumulative update for .NET 3.5 - 4.8). I'll keep an eye on it to see if it's a fluke.  The machine is charging again while it's switched on, but that's the same behaviour I had last time I encountered these charging problems - I had to leave the screen/laptop on overnight for charging to work.

Dear community, I have some strange behavior with my X1Y3 which does only charge the battery if I shut down the PC without charger plugged-in and then plug the charger once the system is off. In this special case the small orange LED is lid up and the battery is charged. During power-on, in sleep and even when hibernating the orange LED stays off and the battery is not being charged. Windows 10 gives me the information that AC is plugged in but the battery is not being charged ("plugged in, but not charging) and also the Vantage Tool correctly recognizes the 65W charger being connected. What could be the issue? Driver, charging unit or the battery itself? I'm simply puzzled. Thanks in advance and cheers

Yes, the laptop will not charge nor power on. It suddenly went off a few days ago. On the first day it would not power on and gave three amber blinks when the power button was pressed. The next day still would not power on but the 3 blinks were gone. Subsequently found that the OEM charger had a short -  the inner cables became exposed and were making contact . Fixed that but still the same behaviour. Used my 5v and 9v phone chargers and got an amber blinking light next to the power input  usb c port and if i press the power button i got white blinks beside the power button... but still no power. I've tried everything on this forum except changing the USB-C power board. Another thing i noticed is that the usb port seems to have an odd colour but I'm not sure if it has always been that way. It has a brownish orangey colour while the other port is a cream colour, is it burnt or that's how it should be? Bought a set of torx and removed the battery re-intalled battery and the only difference was now when i plug in my phone chargers i get rapid white blinking by the power button. In all circumstance I get no lights whatsoever when using oem charger or other 20v 3rd chargers I've tried everything from this forum except changing the usb-c board and now not sure what else to do

6 months ago I bought a Lenovo Yoga 520 14IKBR, and now it won't charge any more while turned on. If we plug it in, the led goes white - and starts flickering orange after a few second, the computer seems to think that the power is not plugged in, and the battery doesn't charge. However, if we first switch off the computer, and then plug it in, it does charge normally. I guess therefore that there is no hardware problem, but a software issue.Somewhere on the internet we found a similar story, and according to them the solution would be a BIOS update. And indeed, the computer says there is a BIOS update waiting to be installed.However - because the computer thinks that the power is not plugged in, the BIOS update refuses to install - 'please plug in power'... So ... first question is of course if that BIOS update would indeed solve our problem. If not, is there another solution? If yes, how can we install that BIOS update safely while the computer thinks it is on battery power?

What is the charge level?  If its like 96% for example it wont charge until it hits 95% to preserve the battery.  Also check Lenovo Vantage.  Do you have conservation mode turned on?  Those would be my first 2 things to check.

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.
