First of all, 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

MY LENOVO FLEX 15 NOTE BOOK TOUCH SCREEN , HAS STOPPED WORKING, PLEASE HELP


Does it work when you plug in the charging cord? if, so you may have a battery problem. Try removing the battery and reinstalling it. If it doesn't work with the charging cord you should contact Lenovo tech support on the Lenovo website for assistance in returning the laptop for repair.

Lenovo tablet will not charge


You should firstly try to see if it will begin to charge with another charger. You should also try swapping out the USB cable used for charging with another one. If you have other devices that use the same cables or chargers then try to test the charger with those; if they still charge while the tablet does not, then this most likely indicates a problem with the tablet that you should consult Lenovo about.

Welcome to FixYa

When the battery is fully charged and you still have the ac adapter plugged in then the battery would no longer be charged. The computer would then be running on ac adapter power.

A sudden drop from 50% to 7% means that the battery is faulty, it is simply a case where it is not holding any charge. I would suggest you contact the seller and check if the battery is under warranty. Hope this helps and good luck.Any question please feel free to ask.
