SOURCE: the dc power jack will not accept power.

It's a little more involved than just removing the keyboard. You have to
Completely disassemble the laptop, until just the motherboard is in your

HOWEVER, for this Acer model it's a different installation, than the
normal one. This DC Power Jack uses a small wire harness. You just
unplug the old one, and install the new one. Let me explain,

I'm a tech who normally works on HP, Compaq, IBM, (Lenova now),
and Acer laptops. Acer's that are older than yours. All the DC Power
Jacks that I have replaced, are directly soldered to the motherboard,
and have no wire harness leading off of them. No plug connector on
the end of a harness, either.

In my search just now for a replacement power jack, my findings show
that the Acer Aspire 5920 series have a small wire harness.
Let me show you,

Here the jack is offered minus the harness. You have to unsolder your old
harness from the defunct power jack, and solder it to the new one.

You'll find the body of the DC jack is made of plastic. There is a metal
pin in the center. (This is the Positive post. + )
Some DC power jacks have a metal cylinder, or metal tube shape that surrounds the Positive metal center pin. This is the Negative connection.
Some just have a flat metal contact prong in the back for Negative.

If you have your AC adapter plugged in, and the plug is bumped, the metal
center pin can break loose from it's mount. Break loose from the plastic
body. Same thing for the metal 'shell' for the Negative connection, but this
doesn't happen as often.
Again, most DC Power Jacks have metal flat prongs that come out of the
power jack's body, go through the motherboard, and are soldered on the
backside. These solder connections can crack, and break, making an
intermittent connection. Doesn't seem to be the case for yours, IF the
jacks shown are the correct ones.

This may help you in your endeavor to disassemble your Acer Aspire.
(AND reassemble!) (TIP from me. DEFINITELY buy an ESD wrist strap
and connect the alligator clip to a good ground. They only cost about
$5 to $7 dollars. They are to relieve static from your body. Electro Static
Discharge wrist strap)

Does the cable seems cut near the jacks? Try with two car lamps connected in series (12v each) to see if the power supply works OK.

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...

Acer 5570z no lites will not power on

Knowing that the new AC adapter (power supply), is putting out 19 to 20.5 Volts (DC), then the problem needs to be diagnosed further.

[ AC adapter is checked with multimeter. Function knob set to DC Voltage. (Dotted line over a solid line) Center hole in plug for AC adapter, that goes to laptop, is the Positive connection. (Red probe lead of multimeter touches)

Outside metal shell of plug is Negative. (Black probe lead of multimeter touches) An economical multimeter can be purchased for around $5 to $12. A multitude of stores carry them. An auto parts store is but one example. Analog, or digital is fine]

The jack in the laptop, that the plug for the AC adapter (power supply), plugs into, is the DC Power Jack.

With many DC Power Jack's, the jack is soldered directly to the motherboard.

Not so with the Acer Aspire 5570z series of Notebook PC's.
The DC Power Jack is connected to a cable of wires, which in turn is connected to the motherboard.
DC Power Jack Harness.

Replacement, is disassembling the laptop down to the DC Power Jack harness, unplugging it's cable's connector, and plugging in a new DC Power Jack harness.

The Bottom Case holds the DC Power Jack in place. (There is a slot in the side of the case it sits in)

Battery removed use an object to see if you can wiggle the Center Pin around. (Pencil? Or C-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y, a flat tip Jewelers screwdriver? )

Also see if the rest of the DC Power jack, that you can see, will move around.

A-N-Y perceptible movement means a problem with the DC Power Jack.
It would also be best to go further, disassemble down, and remove the DC Power Jack Harness, even if no movement is found.

Perform a Continuity Check with a multimeter. Check each wire in the harness to make sure they are good.

No problem found with the DC Power Jack?
Then the problem is a power sensor chipset, or chipsets, on the motherboard. This part of the laptop IS the power supply.
The AC adapter is just part of the power supply.

If this is found to be the problem, motherboard replacement is the viable solution.

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms to denote I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

The power supply (Sensor chipset/s) senses whether the Battery needs a charge. Full or just trickle. It also senses when the laptop is to just run off of the AC adapter, and not the Battery, or Battery, and not the AC adapter.
{Plus a few other functions}

Here is the link to the Service Manual, (Free), for the Acer Aspire 5570 series of Notebook PC's,

Go to the second Aspire heading. The one that begins with Aspire 1200
Go down to the 8th line, and across to 5570. Left-click on 5570
This is a PDF file. May take up to 30 seconds after you click, before the first page comes up.

1) Use an ESD wrist strap. Connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source. (Electro Static Discharge. I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open empty desktop computer case)

Average cost is around $3 to $6.
One example of an ESD wrist strap,

2) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.
If no multi-compartment container is available, substitute with a clean egg carton.
Label each egg holder.
(Or double-sided tape, and label the tape)

There are screws which look VERY similar to others.
Do NOT mix them up.

3) Make a record as you disassemble. Make notes, drawings, and use a digital camera, or video cam, with good lighting.

Nice to have a record to refer back to, in case you are interrupted.
Also nice to have a Personal record made by you, along with the Service Manual

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

The socket that the new power lead fits into is broken. Can it be fixed and what cost?

Probably, as long as it's just the jack.

Average cost to replace a laptop power jack is around $85 (USD), but it can vary depending on price and availability of the jack itself, and just how hard it is to get to and replace.
Laptop manufacturers love to stick the power jack on the bottom of the motherboard, underneath EVERYTHING else, so in most cases, the laptop has to be completely disassembled. Replacing the jack itself is usually about 5 minutes, but gettin to it, then putting it all back together takes an hour or so on average. Not to mention, in some cases we are talking about screws so small that I've actually had them get stuck under my fingernail before. Personally, I tend to use a low-temp hot glue gun to try to reinforce the jack once I've replaced it. My repeat repair rate (not warrantied, 're-broke') dropped about 40% once I started doing that.

85 bucks is a lot cheaper than a new laptop.

Acer aspire 9410 is 199.00 to much to pay acer to fix ac power connection?

Yes unles you feel it is too big a job totackle yourself. the average price for this type of repair is $150. usually it is just a wire that broke off the female connector in the power jack. "female end." You can fix it yourself if you feel confident enough to take the unit apart and solder the wire back on. It is the most common repair on laptops. I would purchase a new part in case it is broken beyond just the wire coming off, it should cost you 10 -20 dollars on a local computer parts store or on ebay.

The internal ac connection on my Acer aspire 3000 is bad, i this a costly fix? Who can do this that is reputable?

Your AC adapter, (Charger), converts Alternating Current to Direct Current, (DC)
[A flashlight battery, and your laptop battery are examples of stored DC electricity]

The port on your laptop where you plug your AC adapter into, is the DC Power Jack.

Price to replace this jack? Depends on where you take it to have it fixed, and what it is in.
Average is $90 to $150.
The tech has to completely disassemble the laptop, all the way down to just the motherboard in hand. Then desolder, and remove the old DC Power Jack, and solder a new one in. Now the laptop is reassembled.

It could be that solder joint/s have cracked, and just need re-soldering.
Less cost.
Or, it could be that the entire motherboard needs to be replaced, because the motherboard design was/is bad in the first place.
More cost.

Who can do this that is reputable? I'll put my money on a small 'Mom and Pop' computer repair shop, every time! Their advertising is largely by word of mouth, and that is by satisfied customers!

DC power input center pin is gone

Part costs about $ 5-10 bucks.....labor to fix it ranges from $ 100 - $250. Problem is caused by jerking or tugging on the power cable too much. All laptops need a Cable Retention Device like the one in this video. . .
