Yoga 920 not charging, no lights

Q: Yoga 920 not charging, no lights

So I had my yoga 920 conk out on me at a VERY inopportune time, next month I go abroad to study. Yesterday I started my laptop and started some light browsing when it suddenly shut down. I tried starting it up again, when it came up with the dreaded blue screen saying 'failed to detect boot device' or something. Third boot try onwards, the laptop does not respond to charging, no lights come on, nothing, NADA. Worst part of it? This happened within 10 months of my purchase from USA. I have 54 days of my warranty remaining. I tried static discharges multiple times, no luck.Went to multiple service centers in Pune, India, but they refused to diagnose the issue saying that they do not service this model since it was not released in India. I'm ready to ship this laptop to the USA with my own expenses to have it fixed or replaced, but so far no customer service has been able to help me out.Any bright ideas/contacts?

I often charge my Yoga 720 at night and annoyed by the blinking lights on the sides of the laptop. Is there a way to turn off both the sleep mode light on the power button and the charging light on the other side, or either of them separately? Thanks.

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

Hello,

I have one of the newer model Dell Inspirion laptops. How do I turn off the light that accompanies the power button and the charge light on the front. I'm able to turn off my backlit keyboard, but these two other lights are quite bright and annoying when I'm trying to play movies in a dark room. 

A:Laptop lights (power/charging) - Dell Inspiron

Hi DELLUSER16486,
What is the exact system model?
The power led and the leds on front are also used as diagnostic indicators. If there is any hardware issue on the machine, these leds help isolate the source of the issue. Hence, there is no way to disable the leds from turning on, as they would be connected to a cable soldered to the motherboard.
Download the service manual / specifications for a better understanding of the machine - http://dell.to/1n3X2po - enter the service tag and download it from the Manual section.
Write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

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

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 shut down my laptop the other day...while it was shutting down I closed the lid and placed it in my bag(the battery was around 35 maybe)... Charged my iPhone while the laptop was off and after some time the charging stopped. I ignored this and after sometime tried to turn on the laptop ... It wouldn't turn on... No red lights for low battery no display... I plugged in the laptop ... No lights ... Tried reseating the ram without any luck ... Since it's inspiron 15z 5523 Ultrabook from late 2012 I cannot go down to the battery easily. The laptop has never been opened.except for changing ram that too 2 years ago

A:Inspiron 15z 5523 Ultrabook not turning on, Not Charging,No lights,No sound

Unplug the system, disconnect the battery (remove the base cover to access it), and hold the power button for 30 sec.
Verify that the LED on the adapter or DC plug is ON before you continue.  If it's not, the adapter is bad and will need to be replaced.
Remove and reinstall both memory modules.
Power on on AC only with the battery disconnected.  If it will but won't with the battery in place, the battery is bad;  replace it.
If the system still won't power up, replace the mainboard.

Hi all Having major issues you with my Yoga 910. It was working normally one day, then the next day when I powered it on and tried to use it, it would sort of freeze on a specific webpage (my online banking site, nothing sketchy). I would have no track pad movement, no keys worked, power buttons wouldn't do anything, but the screen stayed on and wasn't frozen- the cursor in a text field would continue to flash. I held the power button for ~20 seconds to reset, and tried again. Repeated this 3X total. Then, upon booting up again using the one key reset button next to the power button I tried to restore to a previous point. After clicking through the menus, it attempted to restore and restard. However, at this point, it would no longer boot up in to windows. It would say applying automatic repairs, then diagnosing problems, then a smalm black command prompt box flashes for just a moment. It then takes me to a blue screen saying it didn't boot up properly, restart or go do advanced options. I then tried reset functions, both keep files and full factory reset, but after only a second it says system couldn't reset and offers to shut down. I tried this several times, as well as running start up repair, and recovering to several previous points. Now when I try to recover to a previous point, it says "you must enable system protection on this drive." I tried every option offered in all of the advanced troubleshooting menus to no avail, so I powered off and went to... Read more

Hi,

Sometimes when I plug in my laptop to the mains the charging light goes to orange to signify it's charging the battery. After a period of time it goes off, and starts flashing like this:
http://ompldr.org/vYTkzZQ/IMG_0122.JPG
http://ompldr.org/vYTkzZg/IMG_0121.JPG
This is whilst it's turned off. When it's turned on the power button light starts flashing orange and a darker orange.

It seems to happen sporadically. One day it'll be fine, the next it won't.
I've put a voltmeter on the charger plug and that reads 18.5volt whilst plugged to the mains. When I plug the charger in and place the voltmeter on the negative and ground connectors for the battery it reads 0.8volts.
The battery works, I've recently replaced it because the old one died. I've also checked that when fully charged with the voltmeter and that works as specified in the user manual (found at http://www.2shared.com/file/3900367/f777f80e/SG_AS7720_7720G_BOOK.html?s=1)
Whilst it is like this the battery does not charge and the computer runs as if it were on battery power, not plugged in, whilst the lights flash. When I remove the plug it stops flashing and the left light shows a solid green, as does the power button light.

Does anyone know what these lights are supposed to indicate? It makes no mention of it in the guide.
Thank you for your time,
Regards,
Blaggard

My X1 Yoga keyboard stopped responding suddenly. Was working fine, walked away for 15 minutes, came back to wake from sleep and no key response. Track button and click buttons on keyboard work fine. Caps lock and F1 indicator lights don't work either. The touchpad is fine. None of the keys work at all. Didn't install any new software or updates. Bought replacement keyboard from laptopkeyboard.com and replaced but still same exact issue so don't believe it is a faulty membrane (as suspected).  Pulling hair out trying to understand.  Only thought is maybe either the system board or the ribbon cable from the keyboard to the board went bad.  There are two ribbon cables from the keyboard to the system board.  My guess is one is for the track buttons and the other for the keys.  Before replacing these, hoping someone has some other idea (maybe like a simple software glitch?).  Thanks.

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

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%.

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.

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.

Go to Solution.

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

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.

Shipped the device to the same repair center because they are the only ones in my country who are authorized by Lenovo to repair these series laptops. Finally, they found the problem but they can't tell what it is caused by because Lenovo doesn't let them open up the device. The only thing they are offering is to swap components one by one and to diagnose the problem this way, but if they do that it voids the Lenovo warranty. So, I asked them to write diagnostics conclusion that says the computer has a faulty hardware component.I sent diagnostics conclusion to the seller, but they will not replace the unit because I refused them to diagnose the problem swapping components one by one. I found couple cases where same model had the same problem.

I found a solution to my issue by removing the backplate and disconnecting the battery flex from the motherboard. Turning on pc without the battery.It boots fine.

After a System Updade yesterday, my X1 Yoga is suddenly not charging my battery.  There's a message when hovering over the battery icon that says "4% available (plugged in, not charging)".  Not sure if the update is related or coincidental, but the battery tests as normal, and the power supply is working to maintain power.  I've tried different power supplies, numerous reboots, uninstalling the "Lenovo Settings" app, and disabling/re-enabling, removing and reinstalling the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery adapter.  Someone please help!
