You cannot visually inspect laptop components to verify component level damage. You may have damages something in the motherboard tracers, or popped a solder loose, or worse, created a micro fracture in one of the surface mounted chips.

Before going further, i would suggest you thoroughly test the battery, or power supply for charging the laptop, as well as make sure the power connector jack on the motherboard is not damaged in any way. If the jack is the problem, they are quite easy to replace, but knowledge with soldering on delicate components may be necessary.

I would have suggested requesting an RMA if the laptop was still under warranty, but by removing the motherboard to inspect it, you have voided any warranty you may have had.

My acer aspire 7520-5185 will not turn 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.

I HAVE HAD THIS ASPIRE ONE LAPTOP FOR A LONG TIME AND NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE BATTERY OR CHARGING. IT RECENTLY FELL MAYBE 2 FT ONTO THE FLOOR AND NOW IT HAS TO STAY PLUGGED INTO THE CHARGER OR IT


From your description the DC jack in the laptop has been damaged, the laptop must be taken apart to inspect the motherboard for cracks and the internal connections checked.

My daughters Acer wont charge so the battery is dead. The laptop wont even come on when the charger is plugged in but i have an Acer an charged her battery in mine then it charged and it worked in hers. Is...


first try to use your charger into another laptop, if the the another laptop was charged using your charger, it means your battery is the problem, but if it is still not charging it means the problem is your charger. then try your battery to use it into another laptop, as same as the i mention in the charger, if they or both fine, maybe the problem is the batery terminal of your laptop.

My acer aspire 7520 will only charge when switched off


Try removing the battery from the laptop & see if it will power up. If not, then you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

Acer aspire one battery light flashes orange. When booting after a few seconds it shutsdown. Now all lights stay off. Can this acer netbook work without batery ? It doesn't seem to charge the batery


Finally I got it working again, after a lot of try's (just put the plug in for a few hours) the led was red again for a brief moment, then it starting to flash orange again.
I looked it up on a lot of forums, the problem is that the (old) bios doesn't charge the batery anymore when it is deeply discharged.
So I put the plug in and out for about 10-15 times , and the brief moment it is not flashing it's still charging. Until it is not deeply discharged anymore and then it is charging the batery like it did before.

But I still don't understand why it is not working without the batery inserted ??

Acer 7520 charging problem


Try another battery in the laptop to make sure the battery isn't bad. If you do that and the battery still doesn't charge then go ahead and try a different ac adapter.

If neither of these two steps solve it then it could be that the solder points underneath the DC Jack have hairline cracks in them. If this is the case then you'll have to get the motherboard out of the laptop and then with a soldering machine and some solder, you'll have to resolder all the solder points of the DC Jack to solve the problem.

That should take care of the problem but if it still doesn't charge then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
