Battery won't charge


So put the old power cord back on since you say it charged the battery normally. Why did you change it if it was charging the battery? It's quite possible that the new power cord is faulty. Just because it is new does not mean it works.

Remove the battery and plug the new power cord in. Does it boot the laptop up? Are you able to function with the new power cord plugged in. If so, then your battery is more than likely dead and needs to be replaced. The battery only has a useful life and once it is completely bad it will not charge.

My battery is not charging. The charge light keeps flickering orange once i plug in the charger but it never charges. The computer switvhes of the moment i unplug the computer. what can i do?


Try to perform power drain first. Please follow procedure below.

Take out the battery
Unplugged the power adapter
Press and hold the power button for 30secs
Put the battery back in
Plugged in the power adapter
Turn ON the computer

If same issue will happen after this troubleshooting. I suggest you purchase a new battery. If you unit is still under warranty, you may call IBM tech support for battery replacement.

T23 IBM will not operate on battery power & won't charge battery.


The battery has likely been charged one too many times and will no longer hold a charge. Buy a new battery.

2002 IBM ThinkPad T23 battery problems/won't run without power


It doesn't look to me that you're doing anything wrong there.
Was there a specific installation requirement for the battery?

I recently changed my battery on my IBM/Lenovo and all that was necessary, was to let it charge fully before usage.

If you say your battery was charged for "a few days", then I assume there is something wrong with the battery. Next to your taskbar you should see a battery symbol. Double-click on it and you should see the Thinkpad Power Manager. If there is a tab called "Battery Information", see if that gives you more details. Look at the Manufacturing date!

If you really can't run the laptop without being connected to a power source, I would definitely return the battery or at least call the vendor. If your computer is running fine otherwise, there should be nothing wrong with the machine itself.

If you can take a screenshot of that battery information window adn post it here, I am happy to look at it.

PS:
You're doing the right things when you try to use the laptop without an external power source - that's the whole idea, isn't it?

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.

Batter charging problems


it sounds like a component within the laptop may have failed, that controls the battery charging ,but allows it to run the laptop when plugged in.

unfortunately its not something that can be fixed via text messages, you need to take it to a pc shop to be fixed.

good luck with that
