Question about Acer Aspire 7520-5185 Laptop
It is full charged it just won't turn on
Posted by Anonymous on
Hello. There is a hardware failure with the laptop not the AC charger. AC chargers have some range of protections of their own. If the power requirements of the laptop are bigger then what the charger can handle, the charger will turn off. Also other parameters can bring the charger offline. In your case, you have a problem with a small chip, the battery charge controller unit, witch regulates the amount of current required to propperly charge the battery. When this thing fails, the charging requirements for the battery are reported rong and the AC charger is forced to give more power then necesary. This results in disconnection of the AC charger ( an internal fail safe of the
AC charger) and the laptop to swich back to battery power. When the laptop is turned off, it can charge the battery because the power requirements are low, having all processor, main board, hard disk etc turned off. Therefore the AC charger can handle the load. However you will need to have it checked by a service center as it is a hardware fault. Both AC charger and laptop needs that check.
The charge controll circuit needs to be replaced probably. It will be a somewhat expensive repair. Don't buy any other battery untill you have the laptop checked.

You probably get damaged the charging connector, or it is simple dissoldered from the mainboard, thats a very common problem. Check first if it turns on with another fully charged battery. If yes, you should resold the charging connector.

I'm sorry to tell you but water can be vary damaging to your laptop. When its spilled on electronics while running it can cause shorts and they can permanently damage your laptop beyond repair. But Thats only a worse case scenario, your laptop may still be able to be repaired.
The first thing you should do is immediately remove the battery and unplug the laptop from the ac adapter to avoid further damage, Then try to get as much of the excess water out as you can, you could turn it upside down on a towel. If you have dry rice or a desiccant(Its a chemical used to **** up moisture) and a seal able container your could submerge it in either to help dry up the water as fast a possible.
The next step would be to take it to a local repair shop asap, avoid geek squad and the like, as there likely to cost as much as a new laptop. I would find a local shop and ask them how mush it would cost for them to dry it out and test it. If you cant afford to have it fixed at a shop or the amount of water was minimal, you can try to leave in the container for a few day and hope for the best next time you start it. I've save quite a few soaked electronics this way.
I hope I could Help.

SOURCE: My laptop won't charge. I have
For a test
-Remove the battery from the laptop. (leave it out)
-Plug in the adapter and turn the laptop on.
-Gently wiggle the adapter plugged in
If the computer powers off the solder and/or pins have broken loose from the DC jack. This is very common. Average repair bill is around $150, if your in the Denver Colorado Area I can do the repair for about $50
If it won't turn on while you wiggle the adapter and hit the power button then the adapter is bad again sadly

It sounds like the battery charging ac cable might be faulty.. You might want to go to a local shop and see if they could try another cable before you go out and spend money on a new one. They usually will try a cable to see if that's the problem.. Please let me know if this washelpful and if it solved the problem and good luck..

Acer chargers have a very short life time, in the past 2 years I had bought 2. Just buy a new one from amazon they're very inexpensive. Here's the link:
