My Laptop not Charging

Postby Johnmc71 » Mon Aug 28, 2017 0:49

Hi,
what is wrong with my T900 series LifeBook. It always report not charging. But when I take my Batteries to another Laptop of the same model, it charges the batteries perfectly.
How do I correct this anomallies

Does the device only tell you that the battery is not charging but charges the device or is it generally not possible to charge the battery. So for example if your battery has 10% and you shut down your notebook for around 30 minutes and start it again. Do you have more then 10% again?

some more things to check

try the 'working' laptop's power brick on the supposedly faulty one just to rule out any potential issue with the power brick itself. We had an ASUS F3Sr power brick start failing, the screen would flicker (old style backlight not LED), it would trickle charge the battery over a day instead of a couple of hours or not at all if the laptop was turned on. A cheap Chinese clone part from Amazon has worked fine for years since.

if the battery is really charging properly in the other notebook (going to 100% and then lasting the expected amount of time when in use), check the contacts in the potentially faulty one are clean and not misaligned.

Thank you all for your contribution so far. It is not charging because it always report no battery detected. But after about 2 weeks of using it like that, it begins to detect only 1 battery which doesn't charge. I can only charge using another laptop

From what you describe, dirty or damaged battery contacts (the notebook) seems the most likely culprit
