[SOLVED] Debian 10 cannot detect new battery replacement

Postby 4joeyirosh1 » 2019-09-28 00:23

Hi!I have installed Debian 10 Buster 64 bit on HP Pavilion 15-au106TU

Previously I was using the battery that came with the laptop.Battery started to swell thus I replaced it with a new battery.Unfortunately,it seems the new battery isnt being detected by debian as there is no battery icon on the top right of gnome desktop and when I go to settings -> power,there are no usual battery statistics like percentage charged and remaining charge time.I opened up the laptop to confirm that there is actually a battery and its there.

The following battery commands also give no meaningful output based on link https://www.ostechnix.com/how-to-check- ... -in-linux/
Code: Select all
$ upower -i /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT0
  native-path:          (null)
  power supply:         no
  updated:              Thu 01 Jan 1970 03:00:00 AM EAT (1569632787 seconds ago)
  has history:          no
  has statistics:       no
  unknown
    warning-level:       unknown
    battery-level:       unknown
    icon-name:          '(null)'


Code: Select all
$ upower -i `upower -e | grep 'BAT'`  (This command produces no output)


Code: Select all
$ acpi -V
Adapter 0: on-line
Thermal 0: ok, 35.0 degrees C
Thermal 0: trip point 1 switches to mode passive at temperature 99.0 degrees C

Cooling 6: intel_powerclamp no state information available
Cooling 7: iwlwifi no state information available
Cooling 8: Processor 0 of 10
Cooling 9: INT3400 Thermal no state information available


Code: Select all
$ acpi -a
Adapter 0: on-line


KIndly assist in enabling the Debian OS detect the battery or could it be that the replacement battery isnt compatible with the laptop model.Both old and new battery are hp BP02XL rechargeable battery.

The problem looks more like the battery or the fitting of the battery.

Is everything connected properly?

This might seem a daft question, but does the laptop work without external power?
