SOURCE: I have a new battery

First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

Why wont my Lenovo A2109A-F charge?


Lenovo has their trouble shooting for this at their web page.
http://mobilesupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/tablets/a-series/a2109-tablet/documents/HT100036?tabName=Solutions


here is their brief info.
===================

Please follow the steps below to check your battery.
What can I do if the battery does not recharge after the power adapter is connected?
  1. Check if the charger's indicator is on. Check if the charger's plug is fully inserted.
  2. Check if another standard battery can be recharged in your device.
  3. For some devices, you need to charge the battery for 5-20 minutes or until the charge level is 3% or higher before charging information can be displayed.
Note
  1. Different versions of the operating system may have different menu option names.
  2. Different versions of the software and features are available for different device models.

Automatically shutdown, overheating, not charging


Not holding a charge is either a bad battery or a bad charger.
Overheating and shutting down is quite common.
1. Overheating can be caused by the cooling air passageway being clogged resulting in little or no air movement.
2. It can also be caused by a bad fan on the heat sink.
Both are easy fixes.
#1. Clean the airway with a can of air.
#2. Disassemble the laptop and replace the cooling fan.

Works fine on battery or charger with battery removed ,add battery and it quits in 5 minutes


Your battery could be old, therefore doesn't hold any long term charge.
Every time you add the battery it probably doesn't charge 100 percent therefore it discharges within 5 minutes, shutting down your laptop.

My laptop is not charging. i plug the power in but still doenst charge. im not sure if its on the power cords or on the laptop please help asap i need my laptop for school :(


Does the laptop work on AC ? Is the battery or cord/charged a replacement? First, try another cord/charger of the EXACT same specs as original. Second, Is the battery good? How old? Over 4 years? Have it tested. Beware of inexpensive aftermarket batteries and cord/chargers. I assume the laptop works on AC? If you unplug the AC , with battery in, the laptop shuts down immediately?

My samsung phone has been fully charged. I try to turn it on, it says "initializing," then shuts down. When unplugged, it won't turn on at all. When plugged in, it shuts down, then blinks to the charging...


Are you sure it was fully charged before? Could you see the full battery bars?

It sounds like your AC adapter (the charger) has likely gone bad. The phone battery probably wore down, and when you plugged it into the charger, the charger couldn't charge it, so the battery remained dead.

Since the battery is not charged, you can't turn the phone on at all when it's not connected to the charger. And when you do connect it to the charger and turn it on, you get the intermittent charging because something inside the adapter has a faulty connection -- sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

You can easily verify if the charger is the problem by getting a new charger (they're not too expensive) and seeing if the phone will work and/or charge with the new charger.

If the new charger doesn't fix the problem, post again here and we'll go from there, but I think the new charger will take care of it.

Hope that helps!
