Question about Lenovo 3000 N500 Notebook

1 Answer

N500 will not charge

A few days ago, I charged another computer (Packard Bell) with the Lenovo charger, and it worked out fine. Now, when I put in the charger, the battery light blinks very fast and the blue ON - light is showing even when the computer is off. When I turn on the computer, it says there is 0% battery left and turns off. What to do?

Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then -The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty.Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Can you remove the battery? If so pop it out and leave it out for a couple of minutes then pop it back in and see what happens.

SOURCE: Lenovo 3000 N200 battery not charging.

I just had the same problem. My battery had discharged to less than zero and would not start even though the power plug was in. I tried everything... but what fixed it for me was to remove the power plug, remove the battery, plug in the power cord and start the machine. Once the machine was already booted, I put the battery in and it started charging. Dont know if that will fix your problem, but it fixed mine.

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

Hey,

My understanding that your PC has a battery issue.

Could be that the battery cells are dead and can no longer be charged. Consider replacing your battery with a genuine exact same type.

Using the AC adapter without the battery does not work with all Laptops, yours might be one of such. It is not really advisable.

Also ensure your charger is working properly. This should help.

Enjoy.

Hi, My Packet bell laptop wont accept power from the charger while the indicator on the charger shows that it is on and power is flowing through,the bettery was cheked and it looks fine and correctly...


Most likely the battery has reached the end of its usable life.
You'll need to buy a replacement battery and properly recycle the old battery.
Had you posted the model number of your laptop, I would have provided you with some online examples of stores that sell replacement batteries.

Is your laptop still under warranty? I would go to the manufacturer first if it is.
If not:
the system clock is run by the CMOS battery. When low will cause a host of problems. Change it and let me know if this fixes your problem.
