SOURCE: acer aspire one battery light flashes orange.

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 Aspire One is prone to BIOS failure which turns it to a "brick" as you described. As a last resort you may want to take a look at a solution that has been posted for over two years now. Here's the link to it.

How do you bypass secerty in 2003 ford ranger

This surely has nothing to do with an Acer Iconia, but depending on which security you mean you get a few signed permissions to do that, then toy with a CANbus access point or lock device according to your preferences and readings in Ford Ranger dealer, security and repair news. Be safe, don't feed the bears.

How do I start acer iconia in safe mode

Hold the power button in for the count of ten, it should shut it down and cause it to ask you to boot up in safe mood, it may take a couple of tries but it will eventually go to a menu to ask for the boot mode....I recommend spyhunter4...I just removed that virus from a clients pc two days ago

When ever i take a picture, the orange light turns on acting like its going to take a picutre but it doesnt. When i take it off flash, it takes the picture.

The orange light blinking means the flash is charging, once the light goes off you can go ahead take picture with flash. Your light keeps blinking because the flash is not ready.
Try with fully charged batteries. If it won’t work, you may have an open fuse or something wrong with the flash circuit.
