    I have just taken delivery of a new replacement AC adaptor. I have same problem. Plug it in - nothing. I note that if I unplug from the computer the green indicator light comes on. When mains is switched off the light stays on for some considerable time (unlike original). Implies a large condenser. ie electrically different from the original and not campatible with it.

The power supply is detecting a fault. You are probably correct thinking it has the wrong pinout.
Before you pull it apart, consider returning it to the seller if it was sold with incorrect information.
If you disassemble anything, your refund/replacement and warrantee will be voided.

2 ac adaptors have stopped working on acer laptop


Take the battery out. Unplug the charger from the computer. Press the On button for 30 seconds. Then plug the charger in. If it works, then put the battery back in and you're in business again.

If it still can't work, perhaps the charger you bought is a dead one, just contact the seller to get a replacement one after all you have used it for about a few minutes. If you don't believe in that seller, just contact them for the refund and go to other vendor for a new adapter. I recommend the following one for you:

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

Acer aspire 5516 battery and charger problem


Hi, this could be an unhelpfull suggestion but the charger may not be compatable with your laptop. Laptops notoriosly have different power settings, you may be forced to purchase a new Acer charger. Try ebay, you may be lucky

Problems with new laptop battery for my Acer 6920G.


You can't force the battery with a higher charge to work without damaging the computer. If the battery is a direct replacement it should work. If your original charger is not capable of charging the battery you can consider a charger replacement but I suspect the original charger you where using was bad to begin with if that is the case. You can try locating a replacement charger but you need to make sure it is rated for computer so you don't damage the power system.
