Lenovo Y50-70 AC adapter in but not charging while plugged in - Blinking LED lights

Q: Lenovo Y50-70 AC adapter in but not charging while plugged in - Blinking LED lights

Hey Community, I'm in dire need for help, my lenovo Y50-70 has been working fine for the past 3 years now and JUST after the warrenty is up, my battery becomes funky. I noticed that whenever I load up a game, the charger becomes unrecognized and instead of regular led lights, i get one blinking white light and one blinking orange light. When I remove the AC adapter and plug it back in, it'll recognize the charger and ocasionally it'll take some time to recognize it. It stops charging when the LED lights begin to blink. I've tried to1. "remove the static" or drain the battery by unplugging the AC adapter2. holding down the power button for 30 seconds (I didnt remove the battery because it's not a removable battery, Should I?).3. Changed the power settings to high performance and no conservation of power.4. I bought a new adapter and it's still happening, I have no idea what to do. Intially prior of buying a new adapter it drained and I couldnt figure out a way to get it to charge. With the new adapter I was able to charge it till full, but when I have it on, it does the same thing. Please help me community, you kind souls. Best,Richard

I needed to replace my keyboard on my Thinkpad Yoga 20CD, so I swapped parts, and long story short, no post, no BIOS, no external video.  When I plug in the AC adapter, I get 3 blinking red lights on the "i" Thinkpad LED.  If I press the power button, the backlight on the keyboard comes on for 1 second, fades away, and the red LED stays on.  Fan on the CPU spins for about 3 seconds, then stops.  There is a chip on the motherboard underneath the card reader that gets EXTREMELY hot on both the AC power and battery, even without turning it on.  I guess I just need to know if I somehow fried the board when swapping parts?  If there is a short somewhere on the board?  Is there anything I can do to get it to boot, and prevent it from getting so hot?  I've tried a complete power drain, removing the CMOS battery, and leaving it sit overnight with nothing plugged in, all to no avail.  Any help or suggestions wold be greatly appreciated.

Hello,My HP Envy 15 laptop started having this an issue about 2 days ago. I was in class and it was plugged into power when suddenly the computer crashed. No warnings, no shut down screen. it just instantly turned off. Unfortunately, it is a few years old and the warranty expired in January this year. I had not done any hardware upgrades/changes it was completely out of nowhere. I then went home and plugged it in. There was no power charge light beside the power cord on the side of the laptop, however I came back 20 minutes later and there was a white charge light. I then powered it up and was on it for about 10 minutes before it crashed again. It is sitting on my desk now on charge. no lights on or anything and it won't turn on. I have tried turning it on just on battery power, I have tried just on ac power and none will work, Any suggestions would be much appreciated

Product Name: HP ENVY 15-u010dx x360 Convertible PCProduct Model: 15-U010dXOperating System: Windows 8.1 (64-bit)When Purchased: July 2014 The Problem: The LED charging light flashes continuously (even when powered off or plugged in) and when the laptop is plugged in, the battery simply will not charge.  Details: This just started today. When the laptop is plugged in, it states "plugged in, not charging." However, the battery doesn't lose charge while it's plugged in. It's like the computer is dependent upon the power cord and the battery is shot.  This is strange because I don't leave my laptop charging for long periods of time. Thinking back, my laptop has died at around 11% charge since I purchased it. What I've Tried:turning it off and back oninstalling updates and restartingseeing if the laptop would charge while it's offswitching cordsswitching outletshours of browsing HP and other support forumsI'm hesitant to try any battery calibration or removal until I know whether my battery is removable. Hopefully, you all can help. I also don't even know what the diagnosis of the problem is, and don't want to spend money taking it in to get it fixed until I have a better idea.

My Lenovo G50-30 laptop has suddenly developed a funny problem.  When battery charger is introduced while laptop is on it says "plugged in but not charging" and battery keeps reducing, however battery charges when laptop is switched off. The problem has started happening from approx a 3-4 weeks back. My battery was under warranty and was replaced by Lenovo authorised center Jogeswari (West), Mumbai, India BUT still issue reamins the same.  Service center installed a software called OKO care which randomly allowed charging three times while laptop was ON. However this also did not permanently solve my problem and returned back to same issue hence un-installed software. Then had tried couple of other lenovo softwares (vantage, forgot name of anotehr one) but in vain.  Pls organise immediate help as I have exams starting September 19, 2019 and need laptop very badly for preparing and cant afford to switch off to recharge. Thank you in advance. FYI - There is no capping not to charge beyond 55-60% to safeguard battery. I have Windows 10 (64 bit OS), initial OS which came along with laptop was Windows 8.1 which automatically got upgraded to Windows 10. My laptop is always kept on auto update hence all latest updates are installed. I do not allow any unnecessary software installation. 

A:Lenovo G50-30 Battery charging issue - "plugged in but not charging"

That sounds suspiciously like the laptop is in Airport Mode, which if enabled will prevent it from charging when on, yet charge when off, just like you describe.  You can find out via a command promptRight click on start and select Command Prompt (Admin)  -or- Windows PowerShell (Admin)  depending on your system configuration.At the prompt type:  powercfg /getactivescheme    and press EnterIf it comes back with something similar to the image below showing (Airplane) as the active scheme,  then that is likely the culprit. Click on Image to expandIf you find that it is enabled, at the same command prompt window type:  control powercfg.cpl   and press Enter to open the Power control panel applet, and then check to see if Airplane Mode is set as your current power plan. As a last resort, you can also type:  powercfg ?restoredefaultschemes  to reset the Windows power schemes to their default settings.  Best of luck,

Hi
 I have a 2 year old Inspiron 15  5000 laptop with the  original AC adapter supplied by DELL ( windows 10). . I used to get intermittent  warnng about the AC adapter not being recognized, but it would go away and the laptop would charge fine.
For the last month laptop is constantly displaying "plugged in not charging" message, but it works well while it is plugged in.
I have updated the bios.
I also bought a new OEM adapter.  The battery charged initially, but after that it started with plugged in not charging warning message.
Looks like the AC adapter is not the issue. Any idea, or I just throw it in the junk heap!

Sorry if I have missed it - but I can't seem to find a post with the same problem.I've bought 4 of these XPS 12's now and this is the only 1 with the problem.
This laptop was initially experiencing many problems, including this problem. It was eventually diagnosed with faulty memory. So motherboard has just been replaced which fixed all the other issues except this.
If laptop is turned on – and I plug the charger in – the screen brightens – but everything freezes - mouse keyboard everything – and it doesn't indicate it is charging - if I unplug the charger it immediately un-freezes.Sometimes if I remove the charger – then plug it back in – problem is resolved.Other times that doesn't work – so I remove the charger and shut it down – then restart it and problem is resolved.If I start the laptop with the charger plugged in I never have the problem.It is not happening every time at the moment – but it was happening every time until I recently had the motherboard replaced due to faulty memory - I watched the tech do this but can't remember now if the charging port is part of the motherboard or part of the chassis? - if it was part of the chassis I could see how this could be where the fault lies.
I have tried it with 2 different genuine dell chargers but the same problem.The bios recognises both chargers.

A:XPS 12 Freezes when AC Adapter plugged in for Charging

Hi,
Is your problem solved? If solved, what was the fix?
I am facing similar issue with my Dell XPS12 and dell support is trying to resolve same with no success yet. 
Here are the problems I see -
1] Machine freezes on inserting or removing power cord while in Windows as well as in Linux. Sometimes same behavior is seen while in bios as well. Only a hard reboot brings machine back to life.
2] Machine freezes on pressing fn+fX (multimedia keys) in Windows as well as in Linux and in bios as well.
3] The keyboard backlight is always on no matter whether in windows, linux or bios. There is no way the backlight can be turned off. Even if I convert the laptop to Tablet mode, the keyboard backlight still remains on.
4] The volume up, down keys near the audio socket on the edge are not working. Same behavior is observed in Windows as well as Linux.
Issues 2,3 and 4 occur irrespective of laptop running on ac power or battery

So far, in attempt to fix this, the keyboard is replaced twice, power adapter is replaced, Motherboard is replaced with no success :(

Thanks,
Gopi Kori

Currently have a Lenovo W530 that won't turn on. Right before the laptop "died" I was doing work and it was plugged in and then it suddenly just turned off. When I plug the laptop in the charging indicator light does not turn on (nor do any lights). Here is what I've attempted:Removed the battery and unplug from power and hold the power button for a minute to dissipate any charge that may remain. Then I just plug in the charger and try to turn the laptop back onPurchased a new battery chargerIn both cases nothing has changed, it seems like the laptop is just dead. My next attempt would be to replace the CMOS battery but I feel like I should be getting some sort of response from the charge being plugged in, regardless whether or not it needs a new CMOS battery. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I just bought a Dell XPS 13 9350 5 days ago
Battery cant charging.
1. I have update to latest BIOS 1.4.18
2. I make sure using the Dell Baterry comes within the same box when I bought, it's written 45W
What should I do or diagnose ?
It's a new laptop anyway.
It's very unpleasant, to buy a new laptop, with AC adapter that cannot charging

A:DELL XPS 13 9350, adapter Plugged In, Not Charging

With a system this new, if it was purchased from Dell, call and arrange a DOA exchange.  If it was purchased from a retailer, most allow 7-14 days - return it for replacement.  There is little sense troubleshooting and repairing a brand new system that's defective.

This is for 2 issues, which may be connected. I have an Alienware 15. Noticed recently that my system slows down noticeably when plugged in. When gaming, the game is really choppy when plugged in. When unplugged, game runs smoothly. I didn't buy an Alienware to have this problem. Also noticed that computer doesn't always charge when plugged in. I have to pull the cord to one side for it to charge. Not sure what that's all about, but it's annoying. Had the problem with computer not charging about a year ago and fixed it by buying a new AC adapter. Now having the same problem. AC adapters should last longer than 1 year and shouldn't break for no reason. I didn't buy an Alienware to have this problem.

Replace the DC jack inside the system - that will likely solve the problem.

I have had my Alienware 17 for two years now. I bought it for college and being a broke college student, I really don't want to have to replace anything on this already pricy and new laptop.  Around December, it started showing the message (plugged in, not charging) above my battery icon. This concerned me, but I could just wait the problem out and eventually it would fix itself. In March, this problem happened again and I was able to uninstall/reinstall the ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery driver and it would charge again.
Well, I have this problem again and now nothing I have tried will fix it. I tried draining the power, I tried removing the battery/AC Adapter and holding in the power button for 30 seconds, but that didn't work. When it boots up, it shows a message saying that it doesn't recognize the AC Adapter. However, my PC is only running on power from an AC Adapter that apparently it doesn’t even recognize. If I even unplug my laptop, it shuts down.
Giving it time hasn’t helped, reinstalling the drivers hasn’t helped, and my BIOS is completely up to date. This is extremely frustrating because this is supposed to be a high performance laptop, and it is only two years old. I rely on this for programming, running my virtual machines upon other things while attending classes at my university. With an intense semester coming up this fall, I have to get this back in prime condition. I’m not sure where to go from here...is ... Read more

A:Alienware 17 Plugged in, not charging/AC Adapter not recognized

It's an adapter, jack or mainboard problem.
First thing to try is a new OEM Dell AC adapter.
If that doesn't solve the problem, replace the DC jack:

or

If that doesn't do it, the problem is with the charge circuit and the mainboard will need to be replaced.

I am trying to troubleshoot why my AC adapter is not charging. According to Device manager, it is working properly. Posts indicate I should try to update BIOS, however my battery is below 10% and it will not allow me to update it. What can I do?
Also, I read about removing a battery and charging it. How do I do that?
Please help before my battery dies altogether!

A:AC Adapter Plugged in - Not Charging/BIOS Update

A BIOS update won't solve the issue.  
If the AC adapter IS recognized in system setup but the battery won't charge, the battery is most likely bad.
If the AC adapter IS NOT recognized, one of three things is bad:

1.  The AC adapter -- first try a new AC adapter (OEM Dell only- NOT third party).
2.  If that doesn't solve it, and the system has a replaceable DC jack, that would be next to replace.
3.  If that doesn't solve the issue, replace the mainboard.

If you need further help, we'll need the system model information (I.e., Inspiron N5110, 5531, etc.).
In almost no cases is the battery externally chargeable - very few systems have external battery chargers.

I've got an old G40-70 running Windows 10. I think the power area was damaged and now when the laptop is plugged in, it says "plugged in not charging" and the power slowly drains away. Then when the laptop is turned off, it will charge back up to 100%. Then when I turn the laptop on, it will say "plugged in, not charging" and the power will drain out. I've tried taking the battery out but the laptop won't start (when plugged in). I've bought a new power adapter/charger so I think its something to do with the laptop. If I bought a new power jack, would it need to be soldered in? Thanks.

I have been using my lenovo Y50-70 since the past 1 year to play games like witcher 3 and Fallout 4. Recently, when I started playing Metal Gear Solid 5 and Battlefield 1, I have been facing some issues with the battery. I usually keep the charger plugged in while gaming, Since the laptop needs to be plugged in for better performance.  But recently, my laptop automatically stops charging randomly in between eventhough it is connected and the power button and the charging led start blinking.  As soon as i unplug the charger and put it back on, it starts charging again. But after sometime again stops charging and lights start blinking. I've noticed that this happens faster when I'm playing a game vs. when I'm doing something else. I'm scared about the damage it would do to the battery. Please suggest something. Thank you !

Hi, I have a y50-70 that has been working pretty smoothly for the last two years. I am studying abroad in Italy and was told that my charger should have a built in power adapter, however when plugging into the outlet via an outlet adapter it immediately made a popping sound and started smoking. The charger was a replacement which had been working fine for about a year in the states, but I just assumed that this one didn't have the built in adapter and I drew too much power and fried it. I ordered a new charger specified for my model from amazon Italy (with European plugs) in hopes that it would work....but no luck, and he charger is making a consistent soft hissing sound when plugged in. I am also getting a blinking orange battery light when plugged into the charger, but this is the only form of response I'm getting from my computer.  After reading around my best bet is that I've blown a fuse or fried the battery but I wanted to see if anyone had a more confident diagnosis before I go shooting in the dark. Any thoughts?  Thanks,sam

hi Zadeth,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try to:
1. Turn off the machine and remove the AC adapter and battery
2. Hold the power button for 10secs then plug the AC adapter back in.
3. Turn the computer ON and when it gets to Windows, slide the battery back in place and observe the charge.
 
Alternatively, try to use the battery charge until it asks you to plug the AC adapter and observe if the charge goes all the way to 100%.
 
Let me know your findings

I just bought a new Lenovo Y7000 laptop and I love it, it's great. Except when plugged in it usually says "plugged in, not charging" when I hover over the battery icon. For example for the past few hours it's been stuck at 98% and saying that. Also if it does charge it charges super slowly. I updated the drivers for the battery and I am unable to updat the bios.

Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Initially , in such issue first to try is remove microsoft acpi-compliant control method battery .
 
Try uninstalling Energy Management and shutdown the pc,  unplug the ac charger and remove the battery . 
Without battery and charger , press down the power button for 15 seconds to drain remaining power. 
 
Place back the battery and charger and use the Novo button (Item 2 page 9 left side) to turn on pc. 
Novo screen should appear offering BIOS set up . F9 to load defaults , F10 to save and exit. 
 
Without the Energy manager , restart the pc and check .
You may reinstall it back from the support site under power management.
 
You can review the power checkout step guide provided here (page21-22) .

My Lenovo T470 Laptop is one month old. Yesterday, I was traveling and plugged it into a wall adapter on a train. I used the charger that was shipped with the laptop. I was given an error message stating that this power adapter was not powerful enough, and to please use the charger that was shipped with the laptop. Now, any time I plug in, I am told that I am plugged in but not charging. When I returned from traveling, I connected the laptop to my dock, which charged at first, but now won't charge. I've updated the system, installed Lenovo Vantage, restarted several times, and tried it in a variety of outlets.  Anyone have any input?

A:Lenovo T470 Plugged In Not Charging

Hi,
 
I know you have a T470 BUT please check the below article.  I also know you were on a train.  However if you turned on "airplane" mode or the system "auto" detected airplane mode the system may not provide enough power to charge laptop and power dock.  So check in Vantage if you have airplane mode on.

Also check this 2nd post.  I know it talks about P70.  In addition it mentions Lenovo Settings.  The settings on the T470 are in Lenovo Vantage.

I have a Dell Latitude that was working fine until recently when all of a sudden the battery light started blinking orange and the battery would no longer charge. It says it's "plugged in, not charging"  and I've tried to shut down-disconnect the adapter-remove battery-reconnect the charger-turn on-uninstall the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery-shut down-insert battery-turn on, but nothing has worked so far. Also, when I turn on the laptop, it turns on and off a couple of times before starting fully.
I tried to use a different battery, which shows a white light but still doesn't charge. Not sure what happened since it was working fine before.

Hi everyone, I have Lenovo Yoga 710-14IKB 80V4001LAX model notebook. I bought it around 3 weeks ago. Everything was perfect until today. Today I noticed that the device is not charging. I made a research on the internet and saw that in many model of Lenovo there is this problem. - The conservation mode was closed all the time. So it is not that. Please check the screenshot.- I turned off the notebook, removed the cables and press the opening button for 30 seconds, and then plugged the cables in and restarted but no change.- Updated bios and no change.- No reached to battery as it is sealed. I am really disappointed and don't know what to do. I appreciate your help. Thanks in advance.

Ok so a bit over a week ago I bought my ideapad 2 in 1 and about two-three days ago I noticed the battery was at 95 %. I keep it plugged in but it's not charging. Right now it's at 94% but that's probably because I moved it out of my room where I usually keep it to work in the dining room for a bit.Does anyone know how to fix it without removing the battery because I think I have to unscrew the back to get to it and I really would rather not do that or is it normal for the battery to be at a 94-95% charge. I really am hoping I don't have to bring it in to Best Buy because I just bought this and I can't financially afford to get it fixed right now

Hello Any suggestions for a Lenovo G50-80 that won't charge in Windows 10? When hovering over the battery icon, the message shows "plugged in, not charging". However, it will charge when it is shut down and off. This leads me to believe that is a Windows issue. Possibly a corrupt driver? Any suggestions? Is re-installing Windows 10 the only option? And will that fix it? I gotta think so, but am open to suggestions. Thanks.

So I bought this laptop 3 days ago. It seems like it has a charging problem. It sometimes charges when I let the laptop in sleep mode or close the lid. I sometimes get a full charge but then, when I'm using it, it just stops charging for no reason. To "force charge" it, I discovered that if I first unplug the charger from the laptop itself, then disconnect the cable from the power brick, plug it back in the laptop and connect the brick back again, it seems to charge for around 4 more minutes. I tried updateing the BIOS with the support from the official Lenovo support site (this one) but it does not work. I heard about the removing the battery and pressing the power button but I can't remove the battery.  The power brick and charger are original and seem to work fine. Should I try buying another charger? Please resond to this as I'm desperate. Thanks much !

Hi!My Yoga 500-15ISK Laptop seems to have a battery issue. For some time now, whenever I plug my laptop into the AC power, I get this message, e.g. "(% charge) available, (plugged in, charging)", however for some reason, the battery level actually stays the same even after a significant amount of time of being plugged in to the AC supply. Moreover, the battery icon initially shows the animated one which indicates charging is indeed in progress, then after a few moments, it will freeze on the estimated level.Before this, my laptop's battery usually charges relatively quickly. Also, I have not turned on the Conservation Mode so it must charged up beyond 50-60% especially if I leave it plugged in overnight. This issue is really bewildering me right now. Any comments or suggestions on how I can address this issue?Thanks!Other notes re my laptop:It's been around 10 months since I've bought it and I have encountered this issue only a few days ago.I have no other issues with it.

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!

I am facing lots of problem with my new Lenovo Yoga 730 . Almost everyday, I get "Battery Plugged in and not charging" and after lots of manuvers ( reinstalling drivers, restarting, replugging and sometimes praying...) it begins charging. I don't know what works but the problem resolves itself for a day and it occurs again . I have been dealing with this for 2 weeks now.  When I take the charging cable off and replug it, it charges for exactly 5 seconds and goes back to "Not charging". My laptop is new (Bought in September this year). I have also got remote assistance for this problem, even reinstalled Windows.  Someone suggested me to buy a new cable. My cable looks good to me, it is not even bent at any place.  Is the laptop faulty? I have never faced so many problems with a new laptop. Please help. Thanks
