Question about Lenovo 3000 Y410 Laptop

2 Answers

My Packard Bell laptop keeps switching between "Connected: Charging" to "Not Connected: Please connect your charger", Even when it IS plugged in. It's also shut down suddenly, without any warning. I would like to know if I just need to get a new battery pack or a whole new laptop, and if I don't, how do I fix it? Thanks!

Hello, Yes you need to replace your battery, because the error you are receiving is coming from the battery connection.

The best thing to try 1st,remove the battery and use just the power adapter,as this will power the laptop up,
If the laptop stays on with no problems,then yes it certainly looks like your battery,but if it still gives you problems then it can only 1 of 3 things...
1,The power adapter,even if the charge light is on it may be faulty due to evey so often it may have a drop in voltage......
2,The charging port going into your laptop,may be coming detached from the motherboard,try wiggling the end of the power adapter going into your laptop....but only slightly...and just look at the bottom right hand side of the screen,to see if the charge connection change,s if it does then you will need another charging port......
3,It may be a charging issue with the motherboard,charging the battery....but this is quite rare,,,but still possible...but once you have removed the battery and followed the 2 top resolutions then you should have a better idea what the problem is..

Hope this helps...if it does great and please take the time to rate this...

    So, I came to the conclusion that is WAS my actual AC adapter... but now that isn't working very well either. Do you think this will be expensive to fix?

  • anthony_grac Apr 02, 2011

    What the adapter connected to your motherboard..
    If so depends where you go to get it fixed,how old is the laptop..can you get it done under warranty..
    you are looking anywhere between.....100 pounds to 200 pounds,i,ve even seen bills going towards the 300 mark...
    when i fix them it depends on what it intails to strip the laptop down to access it,but i suggest you shop around for a good may get it done abit cheaper

Packard bell easynote new95 will not charge up or stay turned on. I have tried a new battery and charger but still have the same problem. Can anyone help please.

If you already have replaced your battery then you might need a new charger which is not charging your any battery at all.

LOL, I didn't know Packard Bell was still making computers. I would think they sold you a bad battery. I've purchased new batteries before that would not charge.

My packard bell zg 5 won't start after the battery has drained. When I plugged the charger in, the battery indicator only keeps on blinking and won't start.

Try removing the battery and then connecting the power adapter and see if the laptop will start normally with no battery installed - if it does, then you should get a replacement battery.

I have Packard bell NAV05 notebook and it always on 5% available battery even I charge it overnight?

It's probably an ac adapter or battery problem. When the ac adapter is connected to the computer, do you see any signs of charging. You should see an icon on the lower right of the screen. If no, the ac adapter is defective. You can also try to plug your charger to the other laptop to check if it's working. It might be a battery issue as well on the other end. Can you please tell how old is your battery/laptop?

When i am putting charger in charging light is keep blinking and on the sign it says charger connected but not charging can u please tell me what is wrong.

When you point your mouse into the battery icon sometime it shows that it is not charging, kindly try to monitor it as it will eventually change into charging mode.

- normally this happens when the battery is fully drained.

Hi, There is a possibility of problems in:
  1. the adapter that you are using might be defective
  2. or the port for the power is not working
  3. or the battery fault issue
What you can do is to try another outlet to see if the outlet itself is the cause. Cheers!!
