Question about Computers & Internet
Turns off immediately on removing mains lead, will not switch back on unless plugged into mains. Battery should be, and says it is, fully charged.
How old is the battery? It may be time to replace it? Always use a genuine replacement.

sounds like you "MIGHT" have a bad battery. But before you go shopping try to reset you battery..
This was acers response:
Recently it was identified that a small number customers were experiencing a problem with the battery where it would not hold a reasonable amount of charge. We have released an update that should be applied to your computer to resolve this issue. Please complete the processes below and should you have any problems please do not hesitate to contact Acer support on 1300 365 100 or log a service request online at www.acer.com.au/helpdesk.
Thank you, Acer Support
THey also sent me a word doc with the process and a zip file with the BIOS update. I can not upload the up on these forums but if you go to acer they should respond within 1 hr. I sent my request at 1700hrs on a Sturday afternoon and got a response within 40 mins.
** if you need help with that then, this is how you do it. **** After download Acer Aspire one – battery not charging.
Solution: Update the bios as follows:
1. Go to www.support.acer.com
2. Click on Driver & Downloads
3. Select Product Family “Netbook”
4. Select Product Line Aspire One
5. Select your Product Model i.e.: AOA150 (located after MFG.Date:xxxx AOA 150 – xxxx)
6. Click on the BIOS tab below
BIOS revision 3309 (and later) has a fix for battery charging particularly the 6-cell batteries, however if you have the latest BIOS and your battery still isn't charging a good solution is to power down the computer, remove the battery and unplug the AC power cable then push and hold the power button for a whole 2 minutes (nothing will happen, we're trying to completely drain all residual voltage from the mainboard to reset it), then release the power button, install the battery and power up the computer, it should now recognize the battery and begin a normal charge cycle.
I have read other posts that claim to hold the power button in for 1 minute which I tried and it did not work, you must hold it in for the whole 2 minutes. (which is probably what you were advised to do,as you mentioned.I just like to cover all the bases,)

Testimonial: "So helpful,thanks will try this first- saw other posting bout 'BIO', Acer said hold for 30 secs- then post back under warranty- not keen"
It sounds like the connector from the A/C adapter to the motherboard is loose or the inside of the adapter plug that attaches to the motherboard is defective.

The problem is your battery pack. Just replace the battery pack the you have with a new one. But before using it, you need to recharge the new battery for 8 ~ 12hrs continues charging. After charging you can now use you laptop.

The fact that the laptop is recognising the battery's presence and yet is not receiving any power from it is not a good sign I'm afraid. There are batteries available online for around £40 but you may want to take the laptop to a repair centre first where they can usually tell you (for around £7-£10) if it is definitely a battery malfunction or not before you splash out on a new one.
Sorry I can't be any more help, battery issues are usually pretty black and white, they're either broken or working. Hope you manage to get it sorted either way.

I would say that you definitely need to purchase a new netbook battery. If it's only turning on when plugged in, then the battery itself doesn't have any more charge cycles.
