Have you tried another charger? That is a better solution than opening up your computer. If you have tried that then it is safer to get it repaired because you could electrocute yourself or create a short circuit and start a fire!

SOURCE: power jack needs replacing aspire 5050 model zr3 laptop

Hi I will help you. Under the screen and above the keyboard is the power button panel. take a small flat tip screwdriver and carefully use it to pry up one side of the power button panel. you may even need to pry up on the part of the panel that covers the hinges. Once it start to release, grab the panel and kind of wigggle it back and forth, while lifting it. it should start to release all the way. Once removed, the top of the keyboard is exposed, remove the keyboard being careful of the short ribbon cable connector underneath the keyboard.
once keyboard and panel are removed, you'll need to remove the screen via the screws on the hinges. make sure to disconnect ANY of the cables to the screen (usually video cable and wireless cables. And disconnect one small ribbon cable that looks like it comes from the touchpad mouse.
Now check where you removed the keyboard, you should see several sscrews that you need to remove.
At this point, if all the screws are removed, you should be able to disassemble thelower chassis of the laptop. Be very careful not to break anything. You will need to also remove several screws in order to get the motherboard out of the laptop.

I will give you the web link of where I buy ALL my power jacks for my repair shop. A guy named Gary Shaftsall runs DC PowerJacks, and is a great guy to do business with, not to mention he sells the jacks @ wholesale price.
His website address is:

I urge you to be soooo careful in putting it all back to gether, I would hate to see you put a long screw into a shallow hole. this could result in a MAJOR short of the motherboard. Just keep track where all screws go and how the parts go together.
Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

How to replace the DC Power jack of my acer aspire 7735Z

Replacing a DC Power jack in any computer is no easy task. However, it can be done by any novice. First, get on ebay and see what jack you need. Search for you jack by entering Acer Aspire 7735z jack. Most of the new ones have the cable attached to the jack instead of the old fashion solder.

Next, Google this question and check out the YouTube videos regarding Acer DC Jack replacement. It will give you an idea as to what you need to do. You may want to take a video camera and record what steps you take when you take it apart so you can review how to put it back together. Also, get a sewing box or something so you can put the screws in a separate container for the order you removed them; ie: bottom screws; hard drive screws, DVD mount screw... etc..

You always have to start with the bottom and work your way to the top. You will have to remove the palm rest, keyboard, heat shields and any other piece of hardware to get to it.

YouTube is your friend...

When i open my acer the lights indicator has only blink not totally open the computer

Hello, Christopher.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

No power at all, tried a new charger still no power and replaced the battery.


After the battery and AC cord replacement and still not getting power there's only once culprit there and that is the motherboard of the laptop. I recommend you call Acer and have them replace it for you. Thanks

Acer Aspire 5520 Power Problems! :(

1. Actually the problem is not with the charger / adapter!

2. The plug-in port / jack of the laptop has become loose.

3. Don't try to work out the charging by adjusting the adapter plug with different angles. It will just damage the plug-in port (the wire inside the port will become loose and unaligned)!

4. Contact the Acer authorised service center for repair / replacement of that plug-in port / jack in the laptop! It'll just cost some bucks!

please rate this advice if it! :)
