    Battery Light - Blinking Orange 1 sec On/1 sec Off Battery @ 100% Fully Charged Laptop...


    Good day!


    Battery light is blinking orange 1 sec on/1 sec off and as per the battery notif in the taskbar it is currently at 100% fully charged but when I unplug the ac it automatically shuts down. The laptop will not turn on unless it is connected to the ac. Laptop is an Acer Aspire E5-473, OS Windows 10 Home.


    TS done:

    Pushed the battery reset ? at the back of laptop for 5secs and waited 15mins before plugging it in and turned it on = same issue.

    Device manager > batteries > update drivers for both MS Adapter and ACPI > The best drivers are already installed message

    Command prompt admin > battery report >results below:

    Also for suggestions to uninstall battery drivers, I am hesitant to do so because usually the instructions are to remove the battery after and mine is not removable so I'm afraid it will not install back and cause more issues.


    Does this mean the battery laptop is dead and needs replacement? If it is, because of COVID restrictions in my area I will be unable to get a replacement asap so will my laptop burn out if I connect it to the ac for now? I'm scared if it's a fire hazard to keep it plugged in while the battery is whatever it is.


    Also FYI I had a previous issue with my ac cord a few months back, it sometimes will not charge/charge depending on the position of the cord near the charging port in the laptop. Is there a possibility the cord is the problem again?


    Thanks!

    :)

    Battery Won't Charge Fully

    The manual says blinking orange means the laptop is running on battery mode and the battery is less than 10%.

    I shut it down, pulled out the cord, then tried to hold the power button for 10 seconds but the laptop shut down before those 10 seconds. I inserted the cord and tried again with the same results. I started normally and the blinking light stopped. The battery is at 74% and charging but I suspect it won't charge fully.

    I'll try a calibration then battery removal. I've been hesitant about removing the battery because it seems a bit tricky from the tutorial I watched.
