Hi there, It seams charger or battery is faulty. It is hard to say which of the 2 is faulty as alot of laptops will not run if the battery is not installed. I would advise you take it in for repairs so they can test your battery and charger.

My battery is not charging. The charge light keeps flickering orange once i plug in the charger but it never charges. The computer switvhes of the moment i unplug the computer. what can i do?


Try to perform power drain first. Please follow procedure below.

Take out the battery
Unplugged the power adapter
Press and hold the power button for 30secs
Put the battery back in
Plugged in the power adapter
Turn ON the computer

If same issue will happen after this troubleshooting. I suggest you purchase a new battery. If you unit is still under warranty, you may call IBM tech support for battery replacement.

Can't power up. my IBM ThinkPad T22. I have the green light that indicates that it's charged up, however when I push the power button it just makes a flash and nothing happens.


If you only get a green light, try removing the battery first. If a laptop battery has gone bad, it will prevent a laptop from booting up.

Now, if removing the battery doesn't resolve your problem, check the laptop charger to make sure that the adapter has not malfunctioned.

If your fans are spinning, then the problem is probably the one listed below.

The transformer may not be converting the voltages properly.

Try these steps first. If it comes down to the internal transformer, then you have to contact IBM.

T23 IBM will not operate on battery power & won't charge battery.


The battery has likely been charged one too many times and will no longer hold a charge. Buy a new battery.

2002 IBM ThinkPad T23 battery problems/won't run without power


It doesn't look to me that you're doing anything wrong there.
Was there a specific installation requirement for the battery?

I recently changed my battery on my IBM/Lenovo and all that was necessary, was to let it charge fully before usage.

If you say your battery was charged for "a few days", then I assume there is something wrong with the battery. Next to your taskbar you should see a battery symbol. Double-click on it and you should see the Thinkpad Power Manager. If there is a tab called "Battery Information", see if that gives you more details. Look at the Manufacturing date!

If you really can't run the laptop without being connected to a power source, I would definitely return the battery or at least call the vendor. If your computer is running fine otherwise, there should be nothing wrong with the machine itself.

If you can take a screenshot of that battery information window adn post it here, I am happy to look at it.

PS:
You're doing the right things when you try to use the laptop without an external power source - that's the whole idea, isn't it?

T23 Thinkpad could not power up


Your machine should run without the battery, just plug it into the power supply. You may check the powersupply itself. Maybe the power supply was bad and not the original battery. You can pickup one at a computer store. A universal costs around $100.00 to $120.00. The power supply is the (usually) the rectangle box that is part of the power cord. Let me know if that was it. Good Luck. Tim
