Hello, I'll do my best to help you out.
The Acer One have one weird problem, and that is of the mother board. "Naaahh, how can that be?" you may ask. The BIOS in the motherboard have a bug, in which in a certain amount of time it will shut down the Netbook and it will give you the impression that it's dead. But it isn't. As you posted it here, the power supply is working fine. I'm not sure if it's still available, but there is a patch, which it will allow you to flash and fix the Netbook. Now, I'm not able to share the patch with you just because there is no detIl on your Netbook, for example, I own an Acer One ZG5. If yours happen to be the same exact model, let me know and I'll do everything I can to share the patch with you and how to flash it.

Try remove the battery and unplug it from the AC. Hold down the power button for 35-45secs. plug AC back and see if you can power it back on. If not, the motherboard is shot.

The orange light blinks a couple of times then goes off and after that the green power light blinks once with the antenna light


Blinking orange lights means no power or low power. Not enough to power the laptop. If it is plugged in and still the same, then your charging port or charger is damaged.

How do u charge a edelbrock power wheel corvette for kids 12 volt batteries and a 6 volt charger


Hello! Due to Charger Voltage Compatibility: Never use a battery charger unless the battery voltage matches the output voltage rating of the charger...Therefore do not use a 6-volt charger on a 12-volt battery and visa-versa...

How do you charge the 12 volt battery with a 6 volt charger


  • A 6 Volt charger will charge a 12 Volt battery, it will just take twice the time to get the 12 Volt battery to full charge as a 12 Volt charger would take. V*I=W. It will take up to 36 hours to get a full charge from near dead but it will work just fine.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.

My cauzin Got Acer Aspire 5920 !! its charger stop working she buy another charger for it !! but due to inexperience she bought 24 volts instead of 18 volts !! after charging some time the laptop isn't...


One of two things. The Power Connector (on the motherboard) or the motherboard itself. If it is just the power connector, you can purchase a new one for around $10 (look at the specs for your model) and solder a new one on. If it is the motherboard, you'll be replacing alot more than it most likely. It could have fried the GPU, memory and Proc.

And the following three condition should be met for you to use an AC Adapter safely.
1) Output Voltage is within +/- 5% of your old charger's output.
For example, if your old charger provides 19.5V, then you can use a charger that provides 20.5V or 18.5V.
2) Output Current is the same or higher than that of your old charger.
For example, if your original adapter provides 3.42 Amps, then you can use a charger that provides 3.42 Amps, 3.9 Amps or higher.
3) Connector tip must fit securely into your laptop.

Specification of Acer Aspire 5920 Charger:
Output: DC19V 3.42A
DC Connecter (Barrel) size:
Internal Diameter: 1.5mm
External Diameter: 5.5mm

Battery does not stay charged on my 20kw generac generator


WAS A 110 VOLT CIRCUIT RAN TO IT FROM THE NORMAL UTILITY POWER OF HOME OR BUILDING IT FEEDS?
NORMALLY THIS IS DONE IN A SEPERATE CONDUIT FOR CONTROL WIRES.AND THE FEEDERS ARE IN ANOTHER CONDUIT.
WITH A DIGITAL TEST METER,CHECK FOR 120 VOLTS AT THE BATTERY CHARGER IN THE GENERATOR CABINET.USUALLY THERE IS A RECEPTICAL TO PLUG THE CHARGER INTO.
IF VOLTAGE IS PRESENT AT THE BATTERY CHARGER AND INDICATOR LIGHTS ARE ON, CHANGE METER TO DC AND CHECK FOR 13.8 VOLTS OUTPUT FROM THE BATTERY CHARGER.IF YOU HAVE OUTPUT VOLTAGE TO THE BATTERY,AND IT IS DEAD,CHANGE THE BATTERY..

HOPE THIS HELPS YOU,BEST OF LUCK.....

New batteries does not seem to fully charge. tested the output of the charger with meter and it shows no voltage on the output of the charger, but the two lights flash quickly when plugged in to the wall...


The measurements below are for a 12 volt charger or across one battery at a time. In a 24 volt charger or across both batteries at once, double the values.
The charger will not show any output unless connected to a battery. To test the charger, attach the charger to the battery but do not plug in the charger. Connect a meter to the battery and read the voltage (9.8v - 11.6v).
Now plug in the charger. Read the battery again (13.6 - 14.2v).
The voltage must not be higher than 14.8 on the battery or the battery will over-charge - the charger needs service. If the voltage does not come up to 13.2v, the charger is not running. Again, the charger needs service.
Be patient. You can wait ten minutes and measure again. Batteries respond slowly to the charger.

Theres no power


you may have a bad charger. take a volt meter and test the dc voltage coming out of the charger while it is plugged in the wall. on the charger pack there will be a label or imprinting that state the output voltage.

Netbook acer one not recharging the battery


Your charger might be dead, check his output with a voltmeter if you get some juice. It should be around 19 Volts. Then it might loose his power with a charge (when you plug it onto your laptop) so you can try to connect a car light bulb to it . If get light then probably the motherboard of your laptop has issues, if no lights then you can replace your charger.
Cost in average 45 USD.
good luck

Inspiron 1521 adapter vs battery


take an ohm meter you can buy for ten bucks at radio shack put the volt meter on DC volts plug the charger into the battery charger end the black lead goes tothe outside and the red goes inside, set the meter for 12 volts dv and mesure the voltage. read the voltage output on the battery charger transformer see if it's within a half volt if not the charger is bad, if it's ok then use rubbing achol and a q tip to clean the battery connectors on the computer and the battery itself, if you do not get the light then pull the battery out and hold the power button in the on postion and hold the enter key for 1 minute and try again, if the lights do not come back on your battery is dead, if the computer will still boot with the battery then the charger is working if it won't boot up the battery is dead. Got it?
