Ubuntu: Battery Shows Always Charging Even it's not plugged in


I just installed ubuntu 16.04 LTS. but my battery indicator is showing plugged in even it's not. it can't detect low battery. please help. new user.


I suggest, you reinstall or update your unity battery status level or gnome battery status shell extension.

Also check the battery status via command line in your terminal

upower -i /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT0  

If it says the battery is plugged even if it's not, I guess it's a more a BIOS related issue.


this is battery status. and there was a slight mistake. i thought the indicator was frozen as plugged in. then i turned my laptop off unplugged the charger and started again. this time it's showing discharging. and if i plug in my charger now it still says discharging. again i turned my laptop off and started again with charger plugged in and it says plugged in now even if i remove the charger. please help. i have some other issues to solve too. don't want to get stuck at this one.

this is my battery status:
