Question about Acer Aspire 6920 Notebook PC

2 Answers

Acer Aspire refuses to charge.

I have an Acer Aspire 6920G.
When I plug it in, the power light and the "Charging battery" light flickers. It makes an odd ticking noise.
The transformer also makes really weird noises but if the cable is test it supplies a steady 19V (which it should).

    Thank-you. In that case I'll send it off to ACER and let them take care of it.

    If it's under warranty thats good idea, but if not and you cant get a extended warranty, I do repairs, and replace power jacks.

    I Believe the power light is supposed to be solid green, and the battery light to be solid orange when charging, and green when fully charged.

    sounds like a bad battery( you can check the ACER site to see if your battery is on the recall list), or you may have damaged the power jack plug, very common problem.

If you power it down, plug the adapter in and wait for the charge light to illuminate then power up the laptop. You may find it only charges when not in use.

Problems with new laptop battery for my Acer 6920G.

You can't force the battery with a higher charge to work without damaging the computer. If the battery is a direct replacement it should work. If your original charger is not capable of charging the battery you can consider a charger replacement but I suspect the original charger you where using was bad to begin with if that is the case. You can try locating a replacement charger but you need to make sure it is rated for computer so you don't damage the power system.

No indication that computer is charging

The problem is usually the jack when the connector does not reconize it being plugged in. You can also go to power management under advanced options to see if there is a notification turned off. I did this with my Dell and the battery icon in my systray came back.
