Yoga 910 not charging while on

Q: Yoga 910 not charging while on

I was recently given a Yoga 910 which has barely been used and it seems that i cant charge it unless its off. When its powered on and plugged in it just says its on battery. I preformed the following stuff: I thought it could be the charger but i tried my macbook pro 15inch USB c charger on it with the same results. Ive tried to reinstall the OS but that didnt work. I took off the back plate and removed the battery then held the power button for 30 seconds but that also didnt work. Has anyone had this issue and fixed it?Its such a nice laptop i would like to get some use out of it. I even tried to update the bios but the software says it has to be plugged in to do that.

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

Hi everyone, When I am using my laptop Yoga 720 and I plug the charger in, it seems to charge for around 30 seconds and then the battery animation slows down and then stops, and the battery % does not increase. It seems to charge okay when the laptop is closed and charging but this is very frustrating. Can anyone provide and idea on why this is happening?

Hello everybody!I just got my lenovo Yoga 330-11 and I was wondering if it can be charged through the usb-c port from a powerful enough powerbank. Has anyone tried it before? Is it possible? (I really hope it is) Thanks a lot in advance!

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.

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

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%.

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.

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?

Hello, I have bought 910 and reinstall with fresh 1803. I have upgrade bios to latest and installed all drivers from support page.using OEM charger and using proper port for charging (rear). Also device is ok with charger because i can charge tablet when it is turn off. Even in bios it is charging, so i know that there are problem with drivers in windows.Scenario is like this: 1. If i boot with charger pluged in i have exclamation mark in device manager (I2C HID Device) - last picIt says that is is charging but after minute of charging battery indicator stops, (still says charging - but it does not). 2 nd picAfter removing charger and plugin again says only plugged in NOT CHARGING. 1st pic.   2. If i plug in charger after boot i have: no exclamation mark in device managerrest is same as above example. I tried all drivers (which are kind very OLD) , tried Lenovo Vintage (ussless), tried drivers from 920 .. same. Three times i have reinstalled windows even with generic microsoft drivers, it does NOT CHARGE. Also there is annoying screen flickering which i sloved by manually add driver from 920. (not completly still shows sometimes.) will try linux and if that will not work, i am going to return this expensive toy. Funny that i wanted to buy X1 Carbon soon... lol guessing that problem is in Windows changing from ver to ver. and Lenovo, who does not update neither drivers or bios. Sad....

A:Lenovo Yoga 2 13" Charging only 60%

Try going into "Lenovo Vantage" (which replaced "Lenovo Settings") and go into Power Settings and it should give you an option to disable Traditional Charging or something like that. It says that the option of charging up to 60% will make the battery of your laptop have more longvity (for the battery life over the years), but of course will not allow your battery to go to 100%. This sounds like the option that you need to disable.

i have lenovo yoga 720 13" inch model, if i charge the battery lights indicator its still turned on even my device after fully charged. so can i charging my laptop overnight, and does my laptop have overcharge protection ??  

A:yoga 720 13" charging battery

Hi Ferry-indra,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Placing the laptop connected to the charger overnight with proper autosurge/ voltage regulator device is safe.
 
The battery itself have a special overcharger protection as described in the manual page 22:
"Battery charging does not start until the Power Meter shows that less than 95% of the total power remains; under this condition the battery pack can charge to 100% of its capacity. This protects the battery pack from being overcharged or from having a shortened life."
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

Not weird.  The 720 needs 20V to charge.  If your adapter can't provide that or correctly negotiate that it's not surprising that it doesn't work.

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?
