If your laptop is working fine , plugged in the power, you are hving a problem with the battery pack. If you recently bought this, contact the resseler to replace the pack.

My IBM thinkpad a31 on works when i plug it in but i just bought a battery and it charges all the way but when it is unpluged and is on battery power it just turns off


How fast does it turn off? If it is within minutes, then the problem is the battery or the actual charging mechanism that switches from adapter to battery.

If the battery is fully charged and turns off immediately, get that particular part of the laptop checked out. It probably will need replacing.

Hello. I have a IBM t-30 and for some reason, the battery wont charge. The battery is fairly new. Can anyone offer any solutions?


IBM created your nightmare when sold out to CHINESE copy cats. Your 2- slot MEMORY BAYS are probably at fault. Wing Nang did not properly solder in the memory bays at manufacture. Try cleaning each MEMORY BAY with CLEAN TOOTHBRUSH, also the MEMORY CHIPS themselves, install in ONE memory BAY, test laptop, then in the OTHER BAY. I suspect T30 will work with ONE of those bays loaded. The OTHER BAY is probably "cold soldered".. BETCHA !!

Laptop will not run while plug into the electrical system


Worst case is you need a another motherboard because the power supply unit and charging unit are on the motherboard. Then again it could be the DC power jack on the motherboard is loose and needs replacing. The website below is a link to a ebay site that sells these power jacks.

Also is an ebay site for T30 motherboards.
http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?from=R40&_trksid=m37&satitle=t30+motherboard

If your good with tools you can replace these parts yourself. Below is the IBM website where you can download the service manual in pdf.format and fix it yourself without taking it to a computer repair shop.

T30 2366 8GA After removing AC Adaptor battery icon shows Charging and working on AC


there is a switch in the plug end to the back of your comp its like a little swinging door that when you unplug out of back of comp this switch engages battery now if you unplug just from wall its going to see these 2 things the doors not shut but i have to keep working so it sets aside the plug still recognizing it of course but running off the battery trying to still find out why the powers not there but the plug is still plugged in and it will continually search until it reaches its falt point of dead battery
its like a battery backup for your system it gets unplug but wants to know where the power is

now in reference to the little swinging door i call it its a power over relay in your comp for some reason its not closing properly to allow battery to run by self
this is usually just a switch that needs adjusted in the motherboard configuration

IBM t30 battery does not charge


The problem could be the internal battery charger board ( a small daughter board that plugs in the the motherboard) has gone bad. You can check out this site to: http://www.ibm.com/support/us/en/. Ray
