Sounds like a power jack (the power connector at the laptop) problem.

The pins may need to be resoldered to the motherboard, so if you are comfortable, give it a try. Be certain to remove all power sources, first of course. Eventually, you will not be able to get power by moving the charger pin.

If you seek service, there are places that repair the power jack, but I'm not certain of the cost.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

The DC in socket where you plug the charger into the laptop needs reseating and glueing into place.

Get an engineer to do it, sooner rather than later as it is possible for the laptop to short out and time and this may do serious damage to your mainboard......no need for a new mainboard, just get them to repair it...its common on Acer products.

1 hour job @ £60.00 an hour approx - UK rates.

Thanks

I have the Acer 5580. It does not seem to be


Sounds like bad news. It's not good to continue using a wiggly port. You'll likely have to have a technician look at it.

I have an acer 5735, the battery won't charge, sometimes it states plugged in charging, sometimes plugged in not charging, and sometimes fully charged, but in all cases it is not charged at all?


Hello
you can try this things

1st option
Remove your battery and check the pins if are bended or missing

2nd option

1- remove your battery
2- directly connect AC adapter
3- restart or on your laptop
4- after loading windows, put the battery

3rd option
Take battery out and use pencil erases to gently clean the contacts. Also clean contacts on laptop battery box.
Sometimes the contacts oxidize.
Then put back in and see if it charges.

if nothing of this worked,you will need a new battery

Charger is no longer working


Oh, believe it or not. My computer use to do the same thing all the time. Just take the prongs on the plugin and bend them outwards slowly. This will make a tighter fit in the outlet.

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.

Acer Aspire 5580 poor battery


Its time for a new battery. After a period of time of using a battery, the amount of charge it can hold depletes. Even if you always have it plugged in. Usually, batteries only last 18-24 months which is sad, seeing how much they cost. I'm a computer tech and see this problem everyday first hand. The best thing you can do is buy a battery from eBay and save yourself a bunch of money. Local retail stores charge up to 3 times as much for a battery. Good luck and I hope this helps..... :>)
