This model is very cleverly designed. the power connector is actually on a smaller daughter board that is connected to the main board, the problem is most likely the damaged daughter board (sometimes called the power board) so all you need to do is replace this daughter board, you should be able to find good deals on eBay

Acer Aspire 3050 hi there my laptop turns on for 5 seconds when first plugged in then turns off. the battery is out so it must be someting to do with my internal hardware. Any help would be great.thanks


First, do you hear any beep sounds from the laptop after you switch it on?

Next, check if any external device are attached to the laptop. If any, disconnect all of them then try to power it up again. If it did not work, notice the sounds of the fan & hard drive. Do you hear any?
If not, then
the next step in diagnosis will be:
When you plug the power adapter into the power receptacle in your laptop, do you notice any spark on the DC jack?
If the answer is yes, then disconnect internal drives & connectors one at a time & try to boot up the system each time until subsystem with short is identified. If power input still a short with bare motherboard, replace motherboard.
If the answer is no, then your laptop will need to be disassembled & its boards inspected for burnt or melted components, cold solder on DC jack, open connections, or unseated cards.

Acer aspire 3050 not switching on. On/off no affect.


Sounds like either the battery pack or the DC Jack has a problem.
First I would try a known good battery pack. If that does not work then more than likely it will be your dc jack. The jack itself is not very expensive and if you are good at soldering then you've got it made. If you prefer you can get a local tv shop to do the soldering for you. Good luck!

Acer Aspire 5570 will not charge.


Check to see if the DC Power Jack has not been burned or have been fried. If you already checked that out and there is no problem with the jack then it is the problem with the AC Adapter

Power Board Problem and Power Button Hinges Top Cover broken


It would be cheaper to have the power board repaired but the replacement is around $55 from ebay. I'd get a new moulding for it if its available or even if you got somthing plastic welded up.
