My Aspire 5520-5043 began showing trouble to start: no power ligh


thats mean the charging system is faulty and sometimes there are breakages at the edge of the power cable where the pin is.try another power cable if it shows the same signal then the fault is on the laptop board.

Won't turn on


Try to do the following . . . removed the battery then plug the power adapter to the laptop. If you are not getting a green light on this that means there's something wrong with your power adapter.

Try also plugging to a different power socket. We'll just make sure that the power source is not the issue.

If still you are not having success on this it is advisable to visit the nearest acer shop and let them check the laptop. The issue might be internal.

Hope this helps . . .

Acer Aspire 5520 Power Problems! :(


1. Actually the problem is not with the charger / adapter!

2. The plug-in port / jack of the laptop has become loose.

3. Don't try to work out the charging by adjusting the adapter plug with different angles. It will just damage the plug-in port (the wire inside the port will become loose and unaligned)!

4. Contact the Acer authorised service center for repair / replacement of that plug-in port / jack in the laptop! It'll just cost some bucks!

please rate this advice if it helps....tc! :)

Acer aspire 5520 wont power up.. no charging light when connected to mains


Try another charger. If it turns on and chargers the unit you are currently using needs to be replaced. Do not leave your charger plugged in after charging your battery as this will shorten its life.

I HAVE A ASPIRE 5520 IT WONT START THE FAN STARTS AND THE DVD BUT IT JUST KEEPS ON LOPPING


I had the same problem but what you can do is...

Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.

If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a ‘power reset' of the notebook.
  1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
  2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
  3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
  4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
  5. Normally power on the notebook.
  6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
  7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
    If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.
  8. If its not the batery or AC adapter you might have to send it to Texas, just go to www.Acer.com
