Make sure the battery contacts are clean. If it won't hold a charge then you probably need a new battery. Batteries only last a couple of years.

Craig wireless portable speaker cma3561 won't charge battery


Batteries are holding back the 21st century. I have the older model of this and my battery went bad very fast. Now I have to keep it plugged in and not just any usb port will work it has to be a usb power supply of at least 2 amps. I keep mine in a 2100mA usb source.

Can't wake up my Thinkpad..


Try this, Remove battery, Remove RAM, wait... 5 mins, replace the RAM, Then, Plug in the Power supply ONLY. Now press and hold the Power Switch. It should come on.. When/if it does, Shut down as normal, and replace the battery and try again... If it doesn't work now with battery, battery is faulty, or too flat to be any good.. Try an 8 hour, or overnight charge. & try again, if still no good, it is a battery problem,. If not. then you have another sort of problem that you will have to troubleshoot.

Dead thinkpad by ibm


Hello,
The CMOS battery supplies energy to the Real Time Clock when the computer is not connected to the electrical socket, and does not have the battery inserted. It should not prevent the computer from starting up. You will however be asked to reset the time and date of the computer.
Hope it helps.

My ibm thinkpad laptop stopped working and I thought it was the power supply but I got a new power supply and it still doesn't work.


Please clarify - "doesnt Work".
Does anything happen at all when you press the power button?
Are there lights indicating charging when it's plugged in the wall??
Is the battery in the laptop???

Please use the "continue with this expert" option and reply with a bit more information about your problem.
Thanks!!

Charger pin is plugged in but it doesnt charge neither does the charging lite turn on any idea? can be it a problem with BIOS ?


This is a common problem with the T20 & T30 series Thinkpads. The problem is with the power management chip on the motherboard. The pm chip regulates & controls the power input & usage, allows the machine to switch from AC to battery, and controls the charging. Unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard in order to fix it.
