yoga 700 14 Isk battery fail

Q: yoga 700 14 Isk battery fail

hi sorry about my English its bad am from Iceland. I got a yoga 700 and for about a month my battery died, and the charging light was white and blink orange once every 5s. I did not find on the internet any color codes on the charging led what it meant so I decided that it was the battery. I tried the trick to take the battery out and hold the start button in one min and many other tricks from the Lenovo so cold support than finally a got life for about 2 hours and then the same light on the charging led the orange blink. I took the battery out and got 7,2v on the red and black wire than I tried charging it manually with a charger for lithium batteries and that didn?t work I had to pull the tape off and get the plus and mines on the shells that are 2 and 2 wired together to charge it. I first drain it to 3,7v and up again to 7,4v that did not work. I thank that the computer puts a look on the battery or the battery is looked after it finds an error. Don?t know don?t really care ? Than a bought a new one of eBay and put it in and it start it up got it charge for 1 hour and the same thang happened orange blink I took the battery out and hold the start butt down for 1 min did not work so a left it without the battery for the night and started it up the next day to drain the error out. Got it running again first thing I did was to flash the bios trying to get the battery error out of the bios. I got the update from the Lenovo support page after that I did charge it to 100% and put the power off and on again and again I think that is it. as I am writing this on the yoga 700 that is 3 years old I thank that am not gone a buy another Lenovo computer at the start it was the intel HD graphic error and a fixed that with a update and then this battery death after 3 years love the design but going dead because of a battery error after 3 years and no way to turn it on with out a battery is stupid?. hope this helps if you get the orange blink

The battery status toggles between not charging, not used, and unauthorized battery after it was calibrated using one key. Before that, the battery was working perfectly, lasting close to 5 hours. Now the laptop shuts off when unplugged and the battery status is constantly changing. I've had this laptop for approximately a year now and it was unused and left in an unopened box for the first 8 months.

I am a Yoga 700-14ISK user for 2 years. And I had encounter serveral issues with this laptop before (and the service center helped me to fix them) However, now there is an issue I just have now - my battery is draining fast like 1% lost per 2-3 min for light usage (browsing on Chrome or doing my schoolwork either on Microsoft Office or Google Drive) I suspected it was due to my battery wear level. However, as I monitored it, I realised it keep fluctuating (from 19.64% to 42.02%) until I re-calibrate which gives me 38.51% and then 38.71% after a charge to 60%. Is it possible the battery wear level can cause the quick drain in battery?  Is this battery wear level normal? I would also like to point out that I had the battery changed over a year ago and I normally used my laptop for schoolwork and gaming (occasionally now after realising the issue.) I am also going to have an internship (at least 6 months) from July so I am very worried that my laptop can't last long especially its battery. Hence, should I go to a Lenovo service center and request for a battery replacement? Please give me any possible reasons on why the laptop battery starts to drain fast and its battery wear level sharp increase, and also possible solutions for these issues. I would like to know more about it in order to sustain my laptop at least for a year.

My Yoga 3 pro is still a nightmare and so far is unusable given onging battery problems. However I digress. The thing wouldn't charge past 72% and took 2 days to get to that from 51%. So yet again I searched the net hoping to find something new and I noted yet another updated battery guage realeased only a few days ago. I also noted that someone had suggested deleting the windows battery drivers in Device Manager after disconnecting the battery which I figured couldn't hurt so went ahead. Once I reconnected the battery, plugged it in and waited for it to download the battery drivers, I noted it didn't install the ACPI component. Now lo and behold, I have no battery guage at all. In fact it says "The battery is not used", but of course it is. I then tried the latest battery guage driver but no improvement. Can anyone help in this age old problem? Cheers

My Yoga 3 Pro-1370 does not detect its own battery. At the lower right of the screen, it appears the battery sign empty and crossed by a diagonal line. When I click on it the message "The battery is not used" appears.  OneKey Optimizer says: "No battery is present". Please see two images attached. Got the laptop and the battery inspected by a professional but he couldn't fix the problem. He himself updated the Bios, Windows, cleaned the inside and the fan of the computer but the problem is still there. Please provide me with a solution ASAP.

Hi community! I found my Yoga 920 sometimes ( at least once in a day ) suddenly doesn't detect SSD and cannot boot. In the case it happens while using it, bluescreen appeared and try to restart but after that the BIOS message says "Default boot device missing or boot failed. Insert recovery media and hit any key. Then select 'boot manager' to choose a new boot device or to boot recovery media."

So lately the system time on my computer wasn't telling the right time, and every time I changed it, it would just change back. So I changed the CMOS battery to what I assumed to be an identical battery, and Windows was unable to start and said I had to system restore. So I took out the old battery and put the new one in and the same thing happened. When it prompts me to restore and I click on it, I just get the black screen with the blue windows icon, minus the loading icon. What should I do?

Try going into your BIOS and resetting it to system defaults. If that doesn't work, try clearing your CMOS per you manufacturer's instructions. See if this helps.

I bought a genuine Lenovo 70++ battery for my T420 in July of 2016. It had worked well for 1.5 years; until after a 9 hour car trip with the laptop off the battery failed. According to the Lenovo Power Manager, the cells still have 60.61 Wh left of 93.9 Wh design capacity. Even though the cells still have the capacity, the laptop won't charge the battery nor will it draw power from it. It leads me to think that this is an separate issue from the cells aging. I know the Lenovo Warranty is 90 days, but was wondering since my battery failed in a nonstandard way if there would be any additional steps I can take. Thanks.

Recently completed 2 new builds for my cousin and brother (both being nearly identical) but have got an issue on the latter thats left me stumped.

Basically, when booting up the PC there will be no output for the screen, and the system will apparently idle.

However, when booting up without the lithium battery to run on defaults everything runs fine, provided power has completely left the PC before powering up again.

---

So, if booting up without the battery and the system has been left to power down fully... its fine, if restarting without the battery all is fine.

If booting up with the battery or immediately after shutting down, it will fail as described, if restarting with the battery is will fail again as described.

This is true 100% of the time I use it.

Processor : Intel Q8400
Motherboard : XFX nForce 750i SLI
RAM: Corsair DDR2 XMS2 4GB

If that helps.

Any ideas? I'd really like to get this resolved so I can off load the PC , or at the least get some pointers in the right direction if anything needs replacing.

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Boot-up with lithium battery = fail; without = success??

I assume you have checked that the clear cmos jumper is in the correct or keep position.

I would RMA the board. FWIW when you do an intel build, you use a quality board using an intel chipset. When you use third party chipset boards like nvidia, sis, via, etc; you are asking for a problem.

If you really really must use a nvida chipset, at least go with a quality board maker. XFX is low end at best.

Hey guys.

A few weeks ago, I was watching a video on my Lenovo 3000 N200 laptop, and I was called away to do something. I had it running on the battery (as a power source). When I got back, I found that the laptop had shut itself off. I just assumed that the battery had run out and that the laptop had put itself into hibernation. However, now, the laptop only works if I have the AC power adaptor connected - just like a desktop computer, If I unplug the AC power, the laptop simply shuts off, which is obviously impractical and extremely annoying.

Funny thing, on my power options window, it informs me that a battery is connected, but the current power source is still the AC power. The battery does not charge at all, but if I bring up the little window giving me detailed information about my battery it tells me that the Power State is On Line.

Obviously there's a problem somewhere. Basically, I'd like to know if anyone has any idea whether this issue could be solved if I simply just buy a new/replacement battery, or whether there's something deeper that could be wrong.

I even bought a new laptop (with better specs), but I cannot get on with it (because of the limited screen resolution) and would love to be able to have my classic laptop back.

Any input is greatly welcome.

Thanks

Hi all,
My Dell Inspiron 15, 3000 series, tells me the battery has failed completely and needs to be replaced. The laptop is only 2 years old and my battery use has been low. A new battery appears to be about half the price of the machine and I'm loathe to pay that for only another 2 years of use.

 Is this normal? Can I check that it is actually the battery that is failing and not something else?

A:Dell Inspiron 15, 3000 series battery fail

A normal lifespan for a lithium ion battery is 300-500 charge cycles or 18-24 months, so it's not out of the ordinary.
OEM batteries are expensive - though there are third party ones at lower cost, it may not be worth the risk to save the money -- safety can be an issue with them.

To start with, let me describe the problem: My battery's behavior is erratic and strange. It charges to "100%" (or so it seems to think) in 15 minutes. Watching the percentage, I see it go from 15%-16%-17% and then jump to 36% and move up from there, and then jump again. It skips over up to 20% in just a second. The same goes for it discharging. I'll be using my laptop, and see it be at 35% and literally a minute later it goes right to 4% and I get the "your battery is very low" notification. A couple of days ago I kept it running instead of plugging it in and it functioned at 0% for about 20 minutes doing low-demand tasks. I've run windows battery tests and lenovo vantage tests and they all say health is good, but that the full charge reaches about 10000 less watts than the battery was originally designed with.Overall my battery only has a life of an hour, and i've had the thing for about a year. I started noticing the problem after I ran linux off a flash drive for school purposes. I never installed linux to the machine, I only ran it using the boot drive. After that I noticed these issues. Is it possible that Linux may have screwed up my hardware, or at least the way the computer reads battery data? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I have a thinkpad t450 but want a new slightly more compact laptop with a better screen. Among my considerations from Lenovo would be the Yoga 260 or 460 models. How would people here rate them? I'd be looking for a minimum of 8.5 hours of battery. Could anybody say whether this is achievable? I've looked at online reviews which say anything from 6-9 hours for the 260, and I doubt somewhat Lenovos own clain of 12. Could anyone tell me how long theres would go on before running out of juice and any other considerations I should have when making a decision.

Guys I'm planning to buy a Lenovo Yoga 920. I just have to decide whether to buy the model with the 4k screen or 1080p screen. Cost of 4k screen model is 1400usd and 1080p screen model is 1375. All the other specifications are exactly the same between the two models. So basically it boils down to the battery life and yes i understand 4k screen will give lower battery life.  But if you could give ur feedback on what is ur battery life and the kind of usage, it would tremdously useful in helping me. Thanks.
