Ideapad 510-15IKB charging port replacement?

Q: Ideapad 510-15IKB charging port replacement?

The charging jack pin in my laptop got a little bit loose and tends to not connect with my adapter, loosing connection when I slightly move the laptop etc.I still have over 1 year of warranty, but after my last experiences with Lenovo service (waiting over a month for a **bleep** charger) I'd rather pay to have the jack replaced. But there are no charging jacks for this model, can't find anything anywhere (not only this model, other ideapads are also affected). Some people suggest using some Asus charging ports and trimming their legs etc, but I'd prefer some "real" method. I also don't want to loose my warranty. Is there any way I can get it replaced (even for money) without loosing the warranty? I think I could even do it myself because I've done similar things in the past (soldering pins on micro usb plugs etc) but I just simply don't want to loose my warranty, nor to wait a month without my computer (and I'd possibly get a negative response claiming it's my fault).What would you do in my situation?

I often encounter this, but here is the real headache. I have googled a fix for this, but unfortunately it will only work if the battery is removable, which case not for the Ideapad 310-15ikb. Always have to revert back using Acronis. Any other possible solutions for this?

Hello, I noticed this afternoon that the battery indicator in the system tray was at less than full and the status message reads "95% - Plugged in, not charging." This was not the case previously, and I haven't changed any battery or system settings that would affect this. I've only owned the computer for about a month or two and I'm concerned that there may be a problem with the battery. I looked up this issue online and attempted to uninstall and reinstall the driver that affects battery control in System Settings, but there was no change to this behaviour. Is there a way to test if the battery is damaged? What other problems could I be having that would produce this effect?

I've recently bought a brand new lenovo Ideapad 510 15IKB MTM is 80SV001PIH. Since last few days I'm facing issue with battery. I plugged in my machine at a charge level of 96%. After half an hour I noticed that still the battery level is 96% . When I put the pointer on battery guage, it's showed that "Plugged in, not charging". In my laptop battery is not removable, so I can't try removing the battery and putting it back again. I've restarted my machine many times but still the situation is same.

My bag with the laptop inside dropped from a chair, and then the screen bezel cracked. I want to replace it, but I don't know how. I don't see it in 'Part Lookups' either, so I don't know what part number it is. I see small little wires sticking out after I left it alone a few days, thinking that the cracks were okay. Can someone help? With wires sticking out like that, is it covered by the warranty? (mine is the limited warranty, I don't think I purchased the accidental damage protection)EDIT: is the small wires I mentioned and in the picture really wires? I'm beginning to suspect something that looks like wire is just caught there. I've taken apart an ASUS laptop screen bezel before, and I don't remember seeing wires.

Hi there,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.
 
As I understand that you have query regarding battery charging in Ideapad 510 15IKB
Better practice would be to use Battery Conservation Mode.
If you are using Windows 10 you can enable Conservation Mode from Lenovo Settings 
 
For more details check How to increase battery life
 
Do let us know how it goes.

I bought a Lenovo Yoga 720 - 15IKB two weeks ago. The laptop works fine except for one important detail: it has never recognized the AC adapter as being plugged in. Basically when the PC is on, even if plugged in, it will drain down to 5% and turn itself off. But when it is off and plugged in, it charges up to 100% battery without a problem. How can I get my laptop to charge while plugged in? As it charges without issue when turned off, I want to think it is more of an issue with drivers or BIOS than the AC adapter and power connection.  All Windows updates and Lenovo System Updates have been installed, except for one: BIOS Update - 10 [64]When I install and then run this update, I get this blue screen of death Windows Error DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Battery drivers in the Device Manager several times. I restored battery settings to default, tweaked them, and set them back to default with no avail. Can anyone help or make any suggestions??? Thank you very much!

Last week I spilled drop of coffee+milk on my trackpad and it stopped working properly (I know you think I must have actually dropped a gallon but I asked my friend to come over and open my laptop with me and after we opened it, he couldn't see anything -- he was skeptical that I had dropped any liquid whatsoever, so, yeah, it was a drop of milk+coffee on the wrong place..). The pointer was behaving erraticatly and my friend and I, not tech savvy but rational ppl, figured that it must have short-circuited. So I went to ebay and order a replacemente part. The trackpad came with the keyboard + palmrest. The trackpad seemed to be a perfect match. The palmrest was a little bit different. My laptop has the fingerprint reader but the one I ordered didn't have. I thought it wouldn't make any difference since I only wanted the trackpad.The replacement arrived. I swapped the trackpad, made sure all cables were connected (there's actually only one but you got the point), closed my laptop, turned it on and... the trackpad was still not working.  Does anyone have any idea of what I should do next? I took a closer look on the letters and numbers I found on the trackpad and compared the original with the replacement and there's one or two numbers/letters that are different but they are otherwise identical. I can't make sense of why it didn't work and can't think of what to do next. I'd really appreciate some feedback. Thanks,

Hi guys,I bought a new 510-15IKB (i5-7200U type). It came with DOS, I installed win10 and configured everything, installed drivers etc. My problem is the fan, it keeps working constantly in idle, even on battery, on battery saver mode, so it just totally neglects the energy management settings (passive cooling, etc.) and CPU temps (34 Celsius and the fan keeps working).The fan is working in its lowest state (maybe, never heard it be quieter), so the problem is not a loud fan, rather that the fan never turns off during idle. I'm an IT guy, I know how to make things work etc, but this just can't be solved by me.What I tried:- Restart etc.- Reinstall drivers from support page downloads- Install newest drivers from parts manufacturers (intel etc.)- Set different energy management settings- Updated UEFI to newest version (3JCN23WW)- updated win10 totally- ran malwarebytes anti-malware and kaspersky internet security 2017, both finished without finding anything- restarted with discrete graphics turned off in uefi- restarted with fast boot turned off in uefi- even tried it using an Ubuntu live session and it is the same And there is a strange buzzing sound on movement if it is perpendicular to the surface of the fan, it's really quiet, but happens on smaller movements too, and it even happened once while the laptop was completely still on the table. This part of my problem might be totally normal, so my bigger problem is with it not turning off.It seems like a UEFI problem... Read more

Just got my brand new Ideapad 520-15IKB (type BF81), and it is without optical drive.Will adding a DVD RW void my warranty?I want to get an original one with the color of my notebook, Bronze Metal. 

A:Does IdeaPad 520-15IKB 81BF004NRI

Hi stefboy01,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
In general sense, upgrades such as adding optical drive should not void the hardware warranty as long as nothing gets damaged during and after the process taken. This however may be different from each region as Optical drives are non CRU parts (non customer replaceable parts as it would need special tools to perform).
 
Detailed discussion about warranty and upgrades here.
 
Best action plan is to just inform technical support of your planed upgrade. It would also help them document the upgrades since those we add is not part of the original in-warranty parts to avoid confusion in future repairs.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

I ordered this laptop a few months ago from Amazon and from the start it had some malfunctions like mouse glitches and speaker glitches while playing sound. I said ok I can live with that. Then progressively it started to get slower, then a few days ago the screen would suddenly turn black, so I would have to force shut down. And restarting has a 30% chance of success, if it doesn't freeze mid start-up. McAfee is newly installed and always scanning for viruses, but I can't do a full scan now without the laptop freezing and quiting. I don't know if it's a problem from windows 10 or the laptop. Maybe both. Can someone please help and advise what to do. Thank you.
