    The flashing orange light usually means that the battery is being charged from the mains-powered charger unit.
    When battery is charged fully that light should change to green

    Laptop makes may differ though .. for example when my laptop is charging the orange light is on, but it does not flash .. it stays on orange until it is fully charged, then changes to green

    I am not sure I am understanding your problem ... in your first post you wrote
    my laptop power button flashes orange while i am charging and the lid was close
    ...
    and now you write
    when i charge my laptop + the lid is closed it does not flashes orange color it's just completely off


    So which of your above statements is the correct one?

    I can't offer more assistance, as I am not sure I fully understand what your problem is. Hopefully someone else on this great forum, and with more knowledge than I have, will be able to help you

    This thread suggests it could be a battery issue.

    Are you using an original Sony battery? What happens if you turn it off and remove the battery but leave it plugged in?
