Acer Aspire 3003 Power plug not making contact

My laptop is not re-charging when I plug in my power adaptor. The plug is firmly seated into the recepticle, but re-charging does not begin. What should I do?

Note the battery is fine, but I don't think the recharging plug is making contact in the laptop recepticle. I used to be able to manipulate that connection and eventually I could get it to work.. now it won't work any more.

You've probably damaged the dc power jack by trying to get contact. Local repair shop should be able to repair it for $100 and below. I wouldn't recommend going diy unless you're good with stuff like this.

I cannot get my acer aspire 4315 to AC power up. new batteries are ok. i have changed the power jack but no difference. please help


Check the light on the AC adaptor when plugged in to the laptop. If it is flashing, it indicates that the power is being "spat back". That is, not completing the circuit. Means that you have a fault in the charging circuit. I'd check for burning around the contacts where the DC port was soldered onto the board / or if the plug type, check the socket on the mobo is not damaged and is firmly soldered on.

After that, (if not already done) check the output voltage of the adaptor with a multimeter, might be a simple failure of the ac adaptor, even though it looks ok

My laptop is Acer Aspire 4520. It is only charging when it is off. I can use the laptop until the charged battery goes low bat and it will shut down. But when I use it with a Power adaptor, it always goes...


If your adaptor is not supplying enough current, it won't be able to run the laptop and charge at the same time.
Try a new adaptor. Cheap as anything on ebay!

My Acer Aspire 9805 battery was replaced. For


It could be an AC adaptor issue.

It should boot when connected directly to the power outlet through the laptop adaptor. If it is not boot, then the adaptor might not be supplying the needed power to boot it up.

If it is possible, try to isolate the issue. Charge your new battery using another laptop. Then plug it in your laptop to see if it works. If it will work, then it is the AC adaptor of your laptop that is defective. If the charged battery still won't make the laptop boot, then there is something wrong with your laptop hardware. If could be a motherboard issue of your laptop.

Says plugged in not charging


Take out the battery and make sure you can turn on the laptop with just the AC Adaptor hooked up.

If you can then you know the AC Adaptor is good. Try another known good working battery in the laptop, if the battery charges then you know that the old battery is bad.

If the laptop doesn't charge with a know working battery or a new one then you know that the motherboard is bad.

Acer Aspire 2920 won't turn on, although plugged in with battery


First of all, what I'm about to tell you are general troubleshooting techniques - I make no claim that they will fix what you describe, but they may help lead you to a solution.
  1. Unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery
  2. Plug in the AC adapter and attempt to power on the laptop
  3. If it doesn't power on, see #6 below. If it does power on, but doesn't boot the OS, restart - pressing [SPACE] as the first Windows splash screen appears. When prompted, choose to delete the hibernation file and start a system boot.
  4. Shut the system down, disconnect the AC adapter, reinsert the battery, and attempt to power the laptop. If it doesn't start we know, at the very least, there's a battery problem.
  5. Plug in the AC adapter. If it shuts down immediately, or won't power back on after a shutdown. . .
  6. . . .there's a problem with the system board, probably the ciruitry associated with charging the battery.
I hope you 'see the light'. Good Luck!

ACER ASPIRE LAPTOP 2920 NO DISPLAY


Ckeck if your adaptor has power on the connector to laptop.

Might be damaged power cord (to and from the adaptor) or broken adaptor.

While there was power in the battery, it was running, but not charging.
Now the battery is emty and can't be charged because of broken adaptor/cables.
If you find there is no power from the adaptor, bepair it or buy a new one.

Do not try to repair the adaptor by yourself if you are not a technician, it is DANGEROUS !
Either give it to a qualified servicer, or betteer, buy a new one.

Regards.

1st remove all power to the laptop. Remove the battery as well. Let it sit for 10 mins. This will reset it.

2nd Remove the RAM and re-seat the RAM. Known issue with all laptops

3rd Establish the fact the battery is charging with the power chord. Make sure where the power is plugged into the laptop, that it is not too loose. If so, the laptop may not be getting power at all.

G'luck

Acre Aspire -- 3000 series notebook -- Power adapter issue


It's a loose connection on the motherboard. The power connector on the motherboard will need to be re-soldered. You really don't need a new motherboard. You need to find a good Technician that can do this. I use to do this at my old job. We charged $65. Some places will charge up to $90 or so.
