Perhaps remove the multi-bay battery, and let main battery charge all the way. Then reattach multi-bay battery, and see if it's recognized. (Will charge)
That is AC adapter (Charger) removed, then remove multi-bay battery. Plug AC adapter back into laptop, THEN plug AC adapter into power.
[You do Not want to unplug an AC adapter from a laptop, with the AC adapter plugged into power. Could be a power surge/voltage spike. Unplug AC adapter from power, when plugging into laptop, or unplugging from laptop ]
Main battery charged, unplug power to AC adapter, unplug AC adapter from laptop. Plug multi-bay battery in, then AC adapter. (Then plug AC adapter into power)
Your assumption is correct. The phone is not sensing any external AC power. If you are sure that the AC cord/adapter is plug in to the mains, then it is either:
1. the walloutlet or where the ACplug/adapters is connected does not have any power; or
2. The adapter itself is defective.
Hope this b e of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
It could be that the internal battery is too discharged for the AC charger (as supplied with the Power Station) to work. You could try charging the Power Station using a Vehicle (Car/Motorbike) 12 Volt battery charger, connecting the Crocodile clips on each unit. I''ve just done that, although once 'I'd got the Power Station battery's voltage above 2 Volts, I used a 'special' charger (Optimate 5) that automatically applies several modes including 'Desulfation' for recovery.
Simply put, replace the battery with a true OEM battery. I've gotten this on a number of notebooks and their batteries. It's really a matter of whether you use the notebook more on battery power or on AC power, because keeping a battery connected inside a notebook that runs mostly on AC power is a sure way to burn it out sooner. Essentially, if all you use your notebook for is at home, or where you have access to AC power, then just disconnect the battery and run it on the AC adapter. If you use it more for portability and rely on the battery, then I'd recommend replacing the battery, and be wary of offshore manufacturers who say they offer OEM replacements at really low cost. It's so true that you get what you pay for, especially with respect to notebook batteries. When you do get the new battery, I'd suggest getting it fully charged before using it for the first time, and trying to cycle it down (discharging) the battery as low as possible between re-charges to extend the battery life. As I mentioned previously, continuously keeping most batteries plugged in while operating on an AC adapter tends to limit the useful life and charge duration of these types of batteries, including both NiMH and Lithium (although the latter tends to have less of a "memory effect"). I hope this helps!
I see you are having issues with you G550 charging.
You mentioned that the light on the charger is lit up but then it suddenly switches Off, and you also mentioned that the charge still has a light but the power is somewhat low despite of a fully lit up charger Light.
Have you tried draining the power from the system?
Remove the battery and the Charger or AC Adapter as well call it from the G550 then press and hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds to drain power from the system motherboard.
Once drained connect the AC adapter but do not connect the battery yet, then turn the Laptop ON to see if the system will power ON using the AC adapter/Charger if it powers up then there is no problem with the AC adapter/charger.
After testing the AC adapter if it is working power down the Laptop doing a normal shut down.
Once shut down or turned Off insert the Battery back in the Laptop then turn the Laptop ON using the battery only without the AC adapter/charger see if the system will turn ON using the Battery only.
If the Laptop powers On using the battery alone with out the AC adapter then the battery is most likely working as well on the issue.
Now power down the Laptop then connect the AC adapter to the Laptop with the Battery in the Laptop as well then turn the system ON again see if the problem will Occur again having the battery and the AC adapter/charger if the Problem happens with both Battery and AC adapter on the Laptop then the problem is the Motherboard, most probably the motherboard is having issues relaying power from the AC adapter to the battery and may be sent to the Depot for repairs.
I suggest that you call Lenovo for further information about your system, if you still have warranty and is still in the one year period then your system will be covered for any repairs needed - you can call @ 1 877 453 6686 for troubleshooting, you will be asked for a serial number Located underneath the Laptop on a small white sticker that states s/n meaning serial number.
Call your Central Station and put your account on test if it is a monitored system.
Power down the system. Disconnect the battery, then the AC adapter. Then plug the battery in first, then the AC adapter. Plugging the AC adapter in first can cause the low battery message.
if that doesn't work, with the battery disconnected, measure the voltage of the battery with a multimeter. If it reads less than 5.4 volts, the battery is bad. Bad out of the box batteries are not too uncommon.
Next, check the charging voltage from the panel. Measure DC voltage from the leads that connect to the battery. They should read around 6 Volts DC. If the charging circuit is bad, it will cause a low battery trouble and the console will need to be repaired or replaced.
Check the Power adapter, Remove the Battery and connect the Power adapter and try to boot. if no lights then your Power section has problem, like Power adapter etc. Replace the Power adapter and Check again. If the Lights are Glowing with Power adapter then your Motherboard has Problem you have to send it to Service Center.
As you say the system is 4 years old update the bios your download link is here! IMP. Be sure to plug in the battery and it should be charges above 10 % and the system should be connected to the mains power supply also ensure there will not be a power outage during the update process this will resolve the issue 100 % Dont forget to say thanks!
WATER BUCKET IS THE FAULT the switch is more likely the cause try removing bucket and pressing lever manualy by hand then start it up again if it works you know the prob as this was mine the plastic connection aint the best
