Hi there and welcome

It can be in conditioning mode, meaning once a month it runs itself down to 5% to condition the battery and then it will charge up. This is something most laptops do to preserve the condition of the battery.

Can you let it run to 5% and then tell me if it then starts charging please.

I can but that will take awhile, like several hours.

ok, play a video on it whilst its on the battery as that will drain the power more quickly (eg: Youtube)

Let me known how it goes please.
