Battery Shows not charging though power is plugged in

Hello all,

I have Manjaro KDE edition with 5.4 LTS kernel, with Lifebook A555, i3 5th Gen processor. I am facing a strange issue. Sometimes battery shows not charging though the power is plugged in. Other thing I have noticed that Laptop physical battery LED shows that power is plugged in at the same time when this issue occurs at GUI level. I have to restart the system to get it working.

I am using TLP with, Lm sensors with default settings and faced same issue with Cinnamon too. I have tried changing Kernel, issue still persists. No issues faced on Linux OS like Arch, Endeavor etc. As I face this issue only with Manjaro.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

  1. Please read this:
    How to provide good information
    and post some more information so we can see what’s really going on. Now we know the symptom of the disease, but we need some more probing to know where the origin lies…

  2. An inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width would be the minimum required information… (Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command)

  3. The output of sudo tlp-stat --battery would be helpful as well…
