How do I remove the backup battery from my Thinkpad 2647 T23? I'm trying to remove the POP.


ThinkPad T23 2647

Manufacturer - IBM
Series - T Series
Subseries - ThinkPad T23
Machine Type - 2647

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Battery removed, Battery Compartment facing you.

Look at the right inside edge. There is a small plastic cover inside the Battery Compartment.

Remove the one Philips head screw, then remove the cover.
Backup battery, CMOS battery, or RTC battery. SAME/same.
(Real Time Clock battery)

Also, here is the Service Manual,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-ibmlenovo

Drop down to the 8th line. (ThinkPad T20. T20 in blue)
Scroll over, and left-click right on - T23

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the file name, (T23), it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

Start on Page 66. Backup Battery is on Page 67.
OR,
In the Bookmarks menu to the left, click on -

1) The + sign to the left of -
ThinkPad T20, T21, T22, and T23 series.

2) The + sign to the left of -
Removing and replacing an FRU.
(Field Replaceable Unit)

3) Left-click right on - 1010 Battery Pack, and 1020 Backup Battery.

Nice to have when you are going to clean that puppy out.
(BUY, and wear an ESD wrist strap. Connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
Average price is around $3 to $6)

Also nice to have to upgrade the Processor, and a myriad of other things.

Toshiba Satellite a205 Battery Will Not Charge


You did what all should not have been done. your battery works as a buffer between high surge of electricity which comes through electrical supply i.e. it protects your smps from burning up. From your current position it seems your smps fuse has blown. If they have given one or else your smps itself has gone. I'll tell you for your future usage of battery. Whenever you get any electronic equipment with chargable battery you should never switch it on unless and untill you have charged it for continuous 24 hours. Never try to run such equipment directly through dc or ac power. Hope your fuse has gone its not costly.

T23 Dropped and will not turn on


I hate to say this, but it sounds like Lenovo Service is where you need to start at this point.

WILL NOT CHARGE BATTERY


Do you get steady or blinking CHARGE indicator light on the laptop somewhere? If not, the WALL-Wart/External power supply or its connection is bad. This can be due to stressed wiring, bent DC socket or cold-solder joint where it mounts to the motherboard (inside case)... or bad outlet (house socket) or a blown PS

IBM T23 Thinkpad battery does not charge


If you have some electronic skills and are not afraid to open up your laptop then I might have a solution for this. It could be a known problem in T23 where one component is loosen from the mainboard and in that case it can be fixed with a soldering iron. Other possible cause is blown fuses. But to confirm this you have to remove the keyboard and do the check.

"False" battery low indication


Yea I think that might be your best bet, because battery life is measured in Wattage Hours.
