I have done several board-level soldering jobs on laptops. I would also not recommend it unless you know what you are doing. You will not find a manual (unless someone has made one up) showing how to disassemble it properly. If you feel up to the task, I wish you the best of luck. If you don't, I would be willing to offer my services, just email me at jamess02@Hotmail.com. I can guarantee it will be a minimum of $75 (cheap compared with at least $150-$200 from Acer)

Hi being someone who has had a similar problem and tried to repair my laptop by replacing the jack only to destroy it, I would highly advise not to do it unless you have done that type of thing before and have the right iron. I regret not having someone fix it for me and now no more laptop at least not in working shape.

Acer aspire 5740 no power


Hello,

It sounds lie the charger jack in the laptop is broken. When you installed the new battery the laptop had power to run several hours but once the battery drained it could not be charged back up. Check the charging jack when the charger plugs into. I would bet that you will find to loose or broken. These jacks can be replaced but you will need to take the laptop apart and do a little soldering to do the job. Check Ebay for the jack, you can do a search for your model laptop along with "power jack", the parts should run less than $10 with shipping.

I have an Acer Aspire One and when I plug the charger in I have to spin it or wiggle it or both to get the battery to charge. Once I have it in position it generally stays on charge, but if the cable is...


It could be either one Sarah.

The AC adapter's (Charger) cable, or the DC Power Jack where the AC adapter plugs into the laptop.

This is an example of the DC Power Jack not installed,

http://www.laptopjacks.com/view_part/Acer-Aspire-ONE-AOA150-ZG5-DC-Power-Jack-AC351816.html

(You can click on the three views of the jack to enlarge)

1) Check the DC Power Jack to see if it's in good repair.

Battery removed use a small flat tipped screwdriver, and Gently see if you can move the Center Pin around in the jack.
See if the Center Pin will move side to side a small amount. There is supposed to be No perceptible movement.

Referring back to the closeup photos of the DC Power Jack, the flat blade-like prongs are upside down, in relation to how the jack sits on the motherboard.

The flat prongs go down through the motherboard, and are soldered to the motherboard.
If the center pin of the jack is stationary, but the jack as a unit moves around, one or more solder joints, (Connections) for the flat prongs may be cracked.

The repair consists of completely disassembling the laptop, removing the broken DC Power Jack, and installing a new one.

Acer Aspire One service manual,

(Click on the blue - One - in Aspire One.
This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name (One) it may take up to 30 seconds before you see the first page.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

(Took 12 seconds just now for full download)

No perceptible movement of the DC Power Jack? Suspect the cable of the AC adapter right near it's plug. (Plug that plugs into the DC Power Jack)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Usually when you see this flashinf indicator it is a failing battery. IT maybe that some of the cells in the battery are failing and refusing to accept a charge, in that case the battery will actually damage the charger.

My acer aspire 1642wlmi...does not power at all...when u plug the charger it does not indicate any life in it at all...using my multimeter to check the voltage on the adapter(charger) it shows its working...


If the ac jack is soldered directly to the board you can try taking or doing it yourself change the jack out, they go bad...if the jack is connected to the board via a cable, find another cable online and change it out....try the simple first and then move on. Most of the time, the problem is the charger or the jack.
