SOURCE: Acer 5050 screen blink...AC problem???

Very likely a problem with the connection between the power pack and the laptop itself. This is usually the weakest point, and often you need to wiggle the connection a little to get a good connection.

It is usually just a solder joint that breaks, but it is a lot of work to get fixed on most laptops so get it replaced under warranty.

SOURCE: acer laptop power problem

Does not switch on from mains.?????????????
PLEASE EXPLAIN..........

Is the laptop lights not coming on when you plug it in? If not refer to the following.

Are you sure that your power plug has not broken loose. You will have to take the laptop apart to find this out. Sometimes the solder joint will come loose. Do not take this laptop apart unless you know what you are doing. The manual can give you step by step directions sometimes. It is not easy to take it apart without breaking the little things. If you do take it apart, take pictures of every step and take notes and even draw picture so you will know where everything goes. You can touch the plug where it is soldered and re-solder the plug. Please be careful. This takes someone with good solder skills to do.

Instead of spending alot of time trying to do something that could potentially harm your laptop..why not just buy a power supply?

You can get one here Click here for about 16 dollars. That's a great deal they are usually about $60 and its a Dell brand not some off brand.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Acer 5100 laptop doesn't work on ac or charger battery

Motherboard is bad and will have to be replaced unless of course the AC Jack on the back of the laptop is loose. That would cause the ac adapter not to charge and then you would have to take the motherboard out and put solder on each leg on the bottom of the ac jack to make sure it stays in place then the ac adapter can charge the battery properly.

Even going thru the solder method the motherboard could still be bad and have nothing to do with the ac jack.

well either you have a bad battery, or a bad charger, or your ACPI settings are not correct in BIOS, you must check each one, First you must check the Power Adapter, usually with a multimeter set to Volts DC and see if it the same as what is written on power supply, Next check the batteries voltage with a meter and see if that is OK, really the only real way is to substitute the battery, and expensive guess? Also as said check your ACPI settings are OK in BIOS and Windows power settings too. Use your manual for reference.

The charge dock on tablet broke so we can not charge tablet can it be fixed? We just got it this October.


Juello. Did some research on your tablet at Amazon, (http://amzn.to/1xWx6S5) and see that they also have an AC charger (AC charger adapter with a 3.5mm power jack and delivering 5VDC 2A). Available for $5: iRulu Black AC Home Wall Adapter Cable Charger for Tablet PC 5V 2000mAh or a there's a nice replacement KB and cover: iRulu New Portable 10 1 10 5 Android Tablet USB Keyboard Case Black . I would guess the connector snapped off inside the tablet, so you will have to remove it with some tweezers. If the pin for the AC adapter broke off inside the tablet, that's a problem, but most everything can be charged from the USB port too see this website:

Gopro charging problems flashing


GoPro battery dead. Won't charge in the camera. No charge light comes on when you connect the camera to a USB. There's the scenario. Good tip on the GoPro battery shocking technique posted by Rabscuttle above. I discovered that my vehicle USB cigarette lighter adapter drains the GoPro battery when it's turned off. With the GoPro battery completely dead, the camera will not charge it. If the GoPro battery voltage falls below a certain point, the camera's circuitry is set to turn off the internal charger as if there's no battery in the camera at all. The recommended solution is to buy an external charger, which is able to charge a completely dead battery. The battery shocking method saves that expense.

Connecting a 9 volt battery to the GoPro battery for 30 seconds can give the battery enough charge to allow the camera to recognize the battery. A 9 volt battery from a smoke detector, a pair of jumper leads, and two straight pins is what I used to get my GoPro battery charged enough to allow the camera to recognize the battery and begin charging.

My k660 cant charge via charger and data cable when connected to electricity.BUT IT CAN CHARGE VIA DATA CABLE TROUGH PC.I M SICK WITH THIS PROBLEM


If the charger you are using is something along the lines of plugging your USB cable into it and then plugging the "charger" into the wall, it may be that the "charger" is dead at this point. If you have another "charger" to test with please try that, otherwise pick up a new charger and see if the phone will charge with that. If it does, then you know the other charger was the issue.

I turn it on, logo comes on, and it turns off. I've tried holding the on button 8 sec, no luck.


With the limited information provided, a simple first step is to make sure the internal battery is either fully charged or is in a condition to accept a charge. When the internal battery's charge is allowed to below a certain level, it will no longer be capable of accepting a charge via the car charger.

The battery can be conditioned to accept a charge easily, however. This is done by connecting the GPS to the computer via USB port, NOT the car charger. Some Garmin GPS units come with a 120 volt charger that connects to the USB port of the GPS - this method is also an acceptable charge / condition method. Leave the GPS connected for 8 hours or longer (over night) and try to power up again.

I hope this helps!

My Blackberry Wont charge?!


look at the 6 pins on the phones charge port and see if one is higher than the others (usually on the end). if the pins is too far up the lower half doesnt connect to the charger. If your usb port will charge on via usb "DOCK" then more than likely the charger itself (which is way more simple to fix)

1.) if one of the pins on the phones charge port is pushed up, grab a sewing needle and GENTLY push the pin back into place,

2.) if the charging dock is working and is a usb charger like your wall charger, buy a new wall charger at your local electronics store.

hope this helps!

Dc jack broken


You cannot charge fhe laptop via the USB port, you can charge a USB device from the USB port but not the other wat around.
You can get the power connect on the laptop repaired and then it will power the laptop and charge the battery.

No power up


Check the receiving pin on the laptop, it may be bust. If it is you will need a new board as you cannot purchase the charge pin seperatly, if it is ok, your charger is probably burnt out. You can buy a universal charger if you cant replace the original.

WILL NOT TURN ON


Hello LUCKYPURPLE,

The problem could be either with the charger, the battery inside of the GPS, or could be a more serious hardware failure.

You don't mention what method you are using to charge the GPS. Most GPS units can be charged three different ways: connection to the cigarette lighter / accessory jack in your automobile, connection to your computer via a USB cable, or from an electrical outlet using an AC adapter. To determine if the charger is at fault, try charging the unit using a different method. For example, if the GPS turns on after charging in your vehicle but not after connection to your computer, the problem likely lies with the USB cable or port.

If the unit does not turn on regardless of what method you use to charge it, then you likely either need to replace the internal battery or have the unit serviced by a knowledgeable technician.

Best regards,
Ken

Acer Aspire 5100 Red Battery Light


The Aspires should have no issue booting without the battery installed. Have you done a static reset? (i.e. hold the power switch for 20/30 seconds without power or battery in) And the voltage range on the Aspire 5100 should be +19v - +20.5v on the inner part of the connector so it might be worth checking that the power adapter is outputing correctly.
If it works without battery, then it can be checked by testing the voltage between pins 1 and 6 on the battery (the ones either end) and should be 7.5v or above if the battery is charging correctly.
Hope that gives you a starting point, if you've done all those things already then appologies and best of luck with it.
