T430s shows charging but wont charge using the charger but does using the dock

#1 Post by hammad1029 » Thu May 20, 2021 5:52 am

I have a T430s running debian testing. I usually use and charge it with the docking station so i dont know when this issue came up. What's happening is that when i charge it using the charger, it shows "charging" and acts accordingly: increasing brightness and running the scripts i have set to run on charge. Even

Code: Select all

sudo tlp-stat -b
shows that its charging but it doesn't charge. The percentage and the energy keeps decreasing and eventually it dies. The only way i can charge it is using the dock. What could be the issue? I opened the laptop and the charging connector seems fine and is connected properly which is expected considering that the laptop shows that its charging. The charger is also fine since it does charge using the dock.

Check the fuses on the motherboard near that connector.

check what about them exactly and how? I'm new to the hardware side of things so would be great if you'd guide me. also btw do keep in mind that even thought it doesn't charge it does show charging which probably means that some current is flowing through, right?
