[SOLVED] Pinebook stopped to charge
#1
Hello!

My Pinebook was working just fine, but yesterday it has stopped to charge. That is, when I plugged it in - it appears to detect charger plugged in, but battery is not charged and LED near power socket doesn't light up.

Battery is not undercharged and in fact, there's still 26% as I type this message. According to XFCE power manager in Armbian, the battery is "discharging", and at same time, AC power supply is detected. From the charge level, it seems that Pinebook runs mostly from AC power and battery depletes much slower than usual. But I'm puzzled, why doesn't it charge. Battery voltage is around 3.8-3.7V, so it's nowhere close to be "flat", and PMIC should detect and charge it. I still opened bottom cover and tried to detach and reattach battery connector, but nothing seems to have changed.

Here's upower -d dump:
