YOGA C630 WOS battery stops charging and does not fully charge

Q: YOGA C630 WOS battery stops charging and does not fully charge

I had some strange battery behaviors with my YOGA C630 WOS. It feels more like a sotware/firmware issue, but I am not certain. The basic premise is that the notebook stops charging at around 79-80%. If I monitor the charging current, it charges at about 10-15W in the beginning, then begins to slow down and gradually drops to 2-3W and then stops when reaching 79-80%. In essence it behaves as if the battery would be fully charged at that point, even though it is not. I tried draining the battery and charging from empty, but it gives the same results. Also, while plugged in at 80%, if I remove and reconnect the charger, sometimes it will charge for a little bit again, before stopping again. Rarely I have also seen it start charging for a brief period. So sometimes it went up to 86%. I did get to fully charge it maybe once or twice. Battery wear is currently reported at 5%, althoug it did change during the lifetime of the product. Actually it jumped around a lot in the beginning (6%-14%-8%-19%) before settling on 5%. Now it has been at 5%. (I started using the device in April, so it is not very old). The battery lasts for a really long time, so this has rarely been a problem for me, but would still be nice to have a solution to it. It almost feels like as if it had a charge limit set, but there are no options or ways I know of where you can set a charge limit in a non-thinkpad Lenovo. Since there are no drivers to install or software to update (it all happens through Windows Update) there is really nothing I can think of to try anymore. I also checked the UEFI Firmware, but found no options that would pertain to the battery. Has anyone else seen this behavior? Thanks -Lenard

I have an XPS 9550 6th Gen running Windows 10 (Just over 1 year, out of warranty).
The issue is when the charge plug is plugged in and hovering over the battery icon it says that battery is charging.  However the battery is not charging but discharging until the laptop switches off.  The only way for the battery to charge again is to deplete the battery until the laptop is unresponsive when the power button is pushed to switch lap top on.  Once there is no residual power in the battery it will start charging again to 100% after which the cycle repeats, discharge.
Things I have tried.
Latest Bios update - no change
Another A/C charger - worked ok for a few days
Replaced battery - no change
Bios settings - reset to default (info related to battery and A/C charge reports all good)
F12 - Dell diagnostics, reports all good
When Battery is disconnected the laptop works normally
The laptop charge socket seems tight and secure
I have searched the internet exhaustively but have not found this same issue reported.  The only feasible way I can use the laptop is to disconnect the battery.
Can anyone suggest anything?
I would also like to disable the battery instead of having to open it up to disconnect, is this possible?
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks 
Andrew

 My G700 has had this issue recognizing its own OEM battery since I got it, and there is a long drawn out way of trying to resolve this, but the core problem I believe is that when the battery is Fully Drained it can't Self Identify as an OEM battery, so the laptop won't charge it.  Without charge, it will never get out of this state. Problem:  Battery not recognized correctly as OEM, so won't chargeFix:  Charge battery at least a little bit Yes, I know it won't charge, so how do you perform fix? Plug into power and take battery in and out 5-10 times, leave battery in and remove and replug power cord in side of laptop 5-10 times.  Then leave for 15 minutes, then boot normally. Battery will now be recognized!  Why because you managed to get just enough juice in there while trying to identify the battery 10x or so, for the battery to be able to successfully identify itself when you did start it up. This is a HACK fix, but way better than uninstalling, reinstalling power software, BIOS software and device drivers a number of times (which does not work all that well, I have found). Hope this helps you, let me know! OHHH, and keep your battery charged at least a little to prevent this from happening, and turn power off when not using.  I am not sure if this is just some faulty batteries or all batteries, let me know if other batteries behave better than mine. Best,Mark Eckdahl

hi guys,
I recently purchased a 7200mah 10.8v battery from Ebay, for my toshiba m205-s4806 laptop. (to replace the 10.8v original battery)
Instead, I got a 7800mah 11.1V battery. unsurprisingly, the front LED charging light never goes green, and the charging meter (win xp) goes up to 100% but stays on "charging" without changing to "on ac power" like with my older battery. Either the battery is f**ked, or more likely - the laptop is not designed to give sufficient voltage for this battery.

Here's my question though. I can deal with the battery icon not changing, as long as I know for sure that it doesn't draw more current than a battery that reports "I'm full". I'm about to start traveling with the laptop and I need a long lasting battery that will spare my vehicle's battery as much as possible. I think that when this battery goes to the closest it's going to get to be fully charged, the computer power circuit is not able to charge the battery anymore and thus there is no loss, and the laptop will actually draw just the power that it needs to keep running.

also, I get about 2.5 - 3 hours of run time, from a supposedly 7800mah battery, sound a bit too short no? I just can't recall what I used to get from the original 4000mah (or so) battery.

I'm no good when it comes to electricity, so your help is appreciated, thanks!

I have bought this Lenovo laptop some months ago, but I still haven't figured out a way to change the charge for my battery from 59% to 100% in Ubuntu. I know that is possible by installing the Lenovo power management utility on Windows, but unfortunately, that would require me to wipe my system, install Windows, and then reinstall my system. Through a web search, I have found that it is possible to get a full charge by resetting the CMOS, but I have not found instructions on how to do it on the Lenovo G40-80. I have tried shutting down, disconnecting the AC and the battery, and holding the power button for 1 minute, but it did not work! Another tip I have found in the Arch Linux forums, and tried without success was shutting down the laptop, removing the battery with the AC plugged in, holding the power button for 20 seconds, placing the battery again, holding more 20 seconds, removing the battery, holding more 20 seconds, powering on the laptop, and then reinserting the battery again... I'm going on a long trip tonight, and having a full charge would be extremely important to me! Thank you for your attention!

Hi,I bought a new Lenovo Z580 this past June. Shortly after I began using it, a system message popped up explaining to me that since I often have my laptop plugged in, it would conserve battery life if I let the system change my settings so that the battery didn't fully charge -- this would save battery life over the longterm and I would be free to change the setting whenever I wanted to. Well, this has been the biggest mistake ever. I now essentially have a desktop because I cannot find any setting that allows me to change the battery to fully charge (it only charges to 40 or 50%). There isn't any mention of this feature in the user guide materials that I can find and none of the Power Options allow me to change the battery charge capacity. PLEASE HELP! I am stuck with a brand new "laptop" that can barely be unplugged for an hour, and this is the most frustrating, awful setting I have ever seen in a computer. Thank you so much to anyone who can help. Cora

A:How to set my Z580 battery settings to fully charge ?

HP g6-1b60us Notebook PCHere is the situation and symptoms. Battery not charging. Battery icon indicates battery being charged, but it sits at 5%. Have bought a replacement HP battery and that battery will not charge also (it sits at 50%, which I assume is the initial charge it came with). Run the HP Support Assistant and both batteries fail the test saying that cell 4 is bad (cells 1 to 3 have charge, but cell 4 has a 0 reading, even in the new battery). (Is there a problem accessing/charging cell 4?)When the battery is installed and the AC adaptor is unplugged, and the laptop is turned off, the battery charge LED shows a white LED (red/amber indicates that it is charging the battery); now the only time the LED goes out is when the battery is physically removed. Before the problem began, the battery charge LED would be off when the battery was installed and the charger was not being used. Now the battery charge LED goes off only when the battery is physically removed.What I have tried:Cleaned the contacts.Bought a new HP battery.Tried the complete discharge method of turning the laptop off, removing the power cord and battery and holding the power on key for over 30 seconds.Have done safe restarts.Reset to HP recommended settings.Suggestions/recommendations?

How long have you been using the notebook? Main batteries are only warrantied for one year. If you have been using the notebook for more than one year then your battery may be close to complete failure.  Most people get two to four years service life from a notebook battery,  but some do not. Replacement batteries cost from @$40-60.00 USD.https://www.google.nl/search?q=HP+15-r006tu&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b-ab&gfe_rd=cr&ei=JhzBW...

So my laptop has two LED lights, one in the front and one near the plug-in for the charger. Before it would charge perfectly and both lights turned on, then my charger broke and my grandmother got me a charger. This charger worked perfectly but the near-plug-in-LED light stopped turning on. Only the front one was turning on, but aside from that everything seemed just fine. My laptop requires a 120w Charger and the charger she gave me was of 65w. I didn't know this until about a week ago since suddenly during gameplays it would just randomly stop charging after about 5 minutes into a video game or after maybe 2 hours of just browsing and stuff. I went to a place to get it checked  and they told me it was because of the charger, etc etc. Now I bought a new charger and it's still the same, it charges (even though the battery icon says it's on 84% and doesn't move from there) but it suddenly just stops charging after a while again. The problem with it not charging is that my laptop gets extremely laggy and only lasts about 1 minute before it shuts down.Is it the battery? Please tell me there's another solution... Batteries are expensive.The reason I added so much detail to this question is because I don't want to leave anything out. Thanks

Hello, I've researched extensively for a solution to why my brand new battery and AC Adapter won't fully charge.
When I first turned on the computer it charged to around 72 percent. 
Then after the first recharge, it only went up to around 48 percent.
Repeated again, and only got around 39 percent and now it seems to stay there.
I've updated the BIOS already, tried uninstalling the ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery Driver and reinstalling it.
So my question is, is there any place I can download an updated driver?
The one on my computer states that its from 06/21/2006. Perhaps there's an updated driver somewhere?

My laptop has a battery light which tells me when my laptop is fully charged. When it is fully charged (it is green), Windows still says "05 minutes until fully charged" and then charges for another half hour. In the past the light has been reliable, so I believe that windows 10 is the issue. My laptop has also had significant issues with charging. I can confirm this with two batteries. I have an Asus K55VD which I haven't changed the battery plugs in or anything like that. What could my problem be? Here's what I've tried:

-Disabling and re-enabling Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery (no change)
-Turning power saving off in BIOS (did a bit of help with the charging problem)
-Fixing the fan (turns out it wasn't spinning, which caused a range of issues. Helped the battery charge issue a bit)
-Keeping the laptop shut down (didn't help)
-Keeping it asleep (didn't help)
-Keeping it on with the screen off (did help it charge)

Yet I can't find a fix for the battery charging percentage and time issue. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Battery fully charged, but still charging

You won't want to overcharge the battery but allow it to run down a bit often while not seeing the ac charging adapter plugged in constantly. Otherwise the life of the battery will be shortened. As for the 4hr. batteries those will show 3hrs. 52min. of time not a full 240min.! depending on make and model laptop as well as brand of battery. Found that out fast when the need to swap the 2hr. battery that came with an older model HP laptop saw the 4hr. replacement. The new Toshiba 10 laptop however came with a 4hr. battery.

Windows any version isn't exactly the best battery level meter to begin with and shouldn't be relied on as being absolutely 100% all the time. It is afterall still "Software" in contrast to having an accurate physical meter as well as the differences between makes and models of laptops having different power requirements while batteries will tend to see a standard for everything in use! One model will pull a battery down faster simply from having it running then the next! Different cpus as well as the rest of the hardwares will play a role there as well as the individual board designs. Never leave a laptop constantly plugged in while a battery is present as those will tend to get quite warm as well as the overcharge factor to watch for. A good overnight charge of 8hrs. max and if not wanting to see the battery run low and running off of ac a few hours but never constant as that will tend to kill a battery faster.

Dear all, I have a HP 2540p, and recently bought a new, extended accu for this laptop. It is a original HP battery, series HSTNN-DB23, part number 404888-221. The accu has a capacity of 83 Wh or 7800 mAh. This battery is supposed to be compatible with the laptop. It is a new battery. However, when I use the battery, it charges only up to about 2/3 of its capacity - charging stops always somewhere between 66 and 70%. Then, the battery stops charging and upon hovering over the battery icon, Windows says "Plugged in, not charging". HP Support Assistant says something like "The battery is plugged in and is not necessarily charging". If I try to run the battery check in this software, it always crashes and stops working. Has anybody ever experienced a problem like this? Is the battery simply too big for the laptop to handle, so the software limits the use of the battery? And can anything be done about this? Kind regards,Thijs

Sorry for the double post, mods. Mistakenly posted to A instead of C.

Toshiba Satellite C50-A-156 battery fully died, now wont charge. Turns only for a second before turning off.

The laptop is connected to mains 99% of the time. I took it off the mains and the battery seemingly died completely.

I attached it to the charger, left it for ten or so minutes and tried turning it on only for it to die after a second or two. The light went from orange initially to the usual white, but the white seems duller/dimmer than usual. The fan starts but no response from the display. I tried holding the power button down after removing the battery and the charger but the same result. I've tried starting using just the mains without the battery, same result.

Any guidance would be appreciated as I'm at a loss with a seemingly bricked laptop out of absolutely nowhere, unsure of what the above symptoms suggest. Would appreciate some feedback before taking it to a tech and being charged for being told to buy a new battery/charger. My best guess is it's fried, in spite of the previously quiet and functioning fan or the CMOS is dead and needs replacing.

I've left it it to charge overnight and, fingers crossed, it'll be working by the morning.

Update since last night. I didn't remove the battery before leaving to charge. Will give it another 24 hours. I also went and spoke to a tech who tell me he'll diagnose without any expense.

Yes. it does stop charging. All modern laptops have a lithuim-ion battery that is computer controlled.But it is recommended to drain (use) the battery at least once a month to calibrate and maintain battery chemistry healthy.

The issue has been progressive over a few months. When the ac adapter is plugged into the laptop, the blue LED lights for a second then changes to amber. After a few seconds the LED goes off. On the screen the battery stsus icon will show the AC symbol while the LED is ON but it goes away whn the LED goes off. The battery does not charge. I have a new battery. I have another g6 laptop (uses the same battery) that i can charge the batteries in and the AC adapter works flawlessly in that laptop. After the LED goes out I have to remove the AC adapter plug from the laptop and wait a few minutes. Then when i plug the AC adapter plug back into the laptop power socket the cycle repeats; blue LED 1 seocnd, amber LED a few seconds, AC icon on battery status indicator,  LED off, AC icon disappears, battery does not charge. Two different AC adapters, two different batteries (one new and one older - both genuine hp batteries). If I leave the AC adapter plugged into the laptop the LED will not come back on and the AC icon never reappears. I must remove the AC plug from the laptop for a period of time to restart the cycle (short). When the issue started the cycle of charging was longer and it slowely over time has reduces to this few seconds. It seems maybe something in the charge circuit is overheating? The laptop will not run from the AC adapter without a charged battery installed, when this issue atrated it would run from jsut the AC for some time now the AC only "works" for a few ... Read more

Hi,

I have a Lenovo Z50-70 running Windows 8.1. The laptop is relatively new, bought in Jan. 2015.

Some time ago, the original battery suddenly started to have a problem where it would say 45% available, plugged in, not charging. No matter what fixes I tried (after looking through a lot of articles, posts, comments, etc.), nothing made the battery start charging again. It always stays at 45%. Also the battery light/indicator on the front of the laptop is always blinking white.

So I got a new battery, put it in hoping that it would work and charge up to 100%, but the new battery is having exactly the same problem as the original old one! It will only charge up to 45%, then it says plugged in not charging. The battery light is again always blinking white.

What do I do? How can this be fixed? What's going on?

Appreciate any help. Thank you very much.

check the warranty is still active, as thats one route you could take with a relatively new laptop.

also, try uninstalling the energy management and restart the system and check for the issue. also try uninstalling the Microsoft ACPI from the device manager and restart the system and check for the issue. for more info on this action see this thread in the link:

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
 
Thanks in advance

Hello! I've had my X1 Carbon for about 2 years. Today, out of nowhere, it stopped charging. The indicator light is on, and it says it is plugged in, charging. However, the icon on the taskbar isn't moving as it usually does when charging.  I have tried letting the power drain, different outlets, the static discharge button on the bottom, and turning off the battery in BIOS. Nothing has worked. Any ideas? Thanks!

Make sure it is not set to "Airplane Mode. both from the Windows 10 Action Center (icon at lower right in the Taask Bar, and using Lenovo Vantage    (Lenovo Vantage -> Hardware Settings -> Airplane Power Mode) .      If it is activated, it will prevent your laptop from changing Lenovo Vantagehttps://vantage.lenovo.com/

As the title suggests, Inspiron 5765 battery stops charging at 60%.  Diagnosing quite a few in a months time (ave 25), I'm looking for a way to circumvent wasting time sending to depo or having some newby-hire do an on sight visit.  We get this charge failure on enough units to warrant  some research, perhaps finding resolve similar to the XPS Simplo battery incident, or perhaps an undocumented battery charge protocol behavior (suggested from users leaving units plugged in all the time); undocumented as in this is the wonderful Insyde BIOS/UEFI.  
Searches in the Dell forums are useless; I've never experienced anything helpful in these forums even using a simple search for <Inspiron 5765 battery> provides nothing.  But for the hi failure rate in this model & the useful Insyde firmware, I find it hard to believe this does not provide one post on the forum.
Proper wall wart used; Latest BIOS/UEFI firmware (current 1.1.1 from Insyde); Windows 10 Ho (Creator, Anniversary builds); all the latest drivers from Dell; Several different images cloned from confirmed working units of exact same hardware build have been applied to issue units; you could detail the ACPI,  but these are audit-mode units, so nothing is changed from factory defaults & the units are wiped for OOBE upon completion.  
The fun of dealing with the depo provides the usual unrelated & worthless information accompanying units upon return; let alone having t... Read more

Hello, Yesterday, my T490 (N2IET82W 1.60 ) was not charging despite being plugged in on the AC/USB-C 65W power adapter. I was on Fedora 31 with 45/75 thresholds set with TLP, there was 69% battery left, and before leaving home I ran a:$ sudo tlp fullchargeto charge it fully. Unfortunately, despite the laptop was plugged in (red light was on next to USB-C connector), it did not charge at all... I then reboot to Windows 10 and there it started charging, but extremely slowly. Despite the battery being at 69%, Windows and Lenovo Vantage were telling me it would take 1h34 minutes to full charge (see screenshots 2020-02-01 - 1 to 3 below). Airplaine mode was turned off and there were no thresholds configured in the battery settings, as you can see on the screenshots. So fast charge was not working. 2020-02-01 - 12020-02-01 - 22020-02-01 - 3Ultimately, what triggered the fast charge was to unplug and plug back the USB-C power plug (see screenshot 2020-02-01- 4).2020-02-01 - 4Yet, note the discrepancy between what is reported between Lenovo Vantage (1h15 to full charge) and Windows (26 minutes).  This morning, as I write this post with AC power plugged in, I still have two different readings (screenshot 2020-02-02 below): Lenovo Vantage reports 1h05 to full charge and Windows 14 minutes (see below). 2020-02-02I'm very careful to keep the firmware and bios up to date. It is not the first time I have this issue where the laptop is very slow ...

I received my new P72 a few days ago. It would not power up on just the battery so I plugged in the power supply that came with it (230 Watt) and it started right up. The battery gauge in the taskbar showed "0% available (plugged in, charging)".  It was like that for the next day and a half while I continued setting it up with everything from the old P70. The P72 was attached to AC for over 24 hours by that time.I eventually got to Lenovo Vantage and followed some leads in the forum about resetting the battery status to more accurately reflect the status.  I initiated the 'Battery Gauge Reset' from Lenovo Vantage and this screenshot (I manually added the text from the taskbar icon in the black rectangle to the screenshot...)  didn't change for four hours. I hit the red 'Stop' button and continued scanning the forum.I disconnected the battery and reconnected it with no change to the "0% available (plugged in, charging)" for a few hours. I thought that the connection 'seated' a little better but I'm not sure. I unchecked the "Airplane Power Mode" selections in Lenovo Vantage (hint from the forum). No change.  Then I disabled the "Battery Charge Threshold" setting. No change.  I added a second 'power plan' (High performance) to the 'Balanced' plan and selected the new one (can only run on AC anyway). No Change.I had already applied all Windows (Windows Pro 1809) and Lenovo updates.  Lenovo Vantage had found and installed these updates:I could not fi... Read more
