Either the center pin on the dc plug or the small tension band inside the DC jack is loosing its spring, this spring action is what holds tension on the shaft of the pluug. The center pin that conducts the positive charge tends to break its solder point and therfore the chrge unless it is manipulated, the jack at this point needs to be replaced.

My Acer Aspire 5810tzg won't start, I've check the power cable and battery and they work fine on other machines, it just won't turn on


There is one thing you can attempt before seeking repairs. You should try a power reset.

1) Unplug the AC adapter
2) Remove the battery
3) Hold down the power button for 30 seconds and then release it
4) Insert battery
5) Plug in AC adapter and see if the laptop can power on

If it does not power on, you may need to seek support with Acer.

Acer aspire notebook will not switch on after battery discharge even with mains adaptor plugged in. Help Noel


1. Remove the battery and the ac adapter from the laptop computer. Press the power button for about 10 seconds. This will discharge thee flea power from the laptop.
2. Connect the battery and the ac adapter. Charge the computer for about 30 mins then try to turn the computer on.
If this does not work, try to turn the computer on with only the AC adapter connected. If this works then it time to replace the battery.

My acer aspire 4740g does not power on. i have removed the battery and directly connected to the power supply but still does not turn on.


Problem description:
The laptop is completely dead. When you plug the AC adapter and press on the power button, nothing happens. The laptop has no signs of life at all. None of the LED lights is working.
Possible cause:
1. AC adapter failure.
2. Power jack failure.
3. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:
1. Test the AC adapter with a multimeter. It's possible that you have a failed AC adapter. If you don't have a multimeter, test your laptop with another known good AC adapter.

2. It's possible that power jack (socket where you plug the AC adapter) is broken. Remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. In some cases you can fix the jack by resoldering it on the motherboard. In other cases you have to replace the jack with a new one.
Using a multimeter, test if the power goes to the motherboard through the jack.
3. If replacing the AC power adapter and jack on the motherboard doesn't help, most likely you have a bad motherboard. Replace the motherboard.

My 4520 Acer Laptop will not charge and will not work on AC power alone.......


You First need to test your AC Adapter Cord...
You can test if you have a secondary known working one.. plug that one in to see if same issue occurs.. OR you will need to test the AC Adapter using a multimeter (available at any home improvement store for under $7).. When testing the Plug End on the AC Adapter - Hold The Negative Test Prod Of the Multimeter to the Outer Side Of the Plug Tip, and Put The Positive(red) Test Prod Inside The Plug Tip... See If You Have Power Through The AC Adapter Tip... You Might Need To Slightly Wiggle The Cord Near The Tip End To See If THere Is A Short In The Cord....

If Cord Tests Good....

You Will Need To Replace The Laptops DC Jack...
The DC Jack is the port where your AC Adapter Plugs into on the laptop..

Your Faulty DC Jack Would Need to be desoldered, the motherboard cleaned of all old flux, Re-Tin The Contact Pads and then Resolder a New DC Jack Onto The Motherboard...

I cannot find the compatable AC adapter for my ACER Extensa 5420-5687 on the ACER web site. Are all the 65W adapters the same for ACER


If it requires a 65W adapter, then any universal adapter will work and probably be cheaper. or off ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/AC-Adapter-Charger-Cord-for-Acer-Extensa-5420-5059_W0QQitemZ290306848179QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item4397a2f5b3&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65:12|66:2|39:1|72:1205|240:1308|301:1|293:1|294:50
any 19V 3.42Amp adapter with the right tip will work.

Acer laptop Aspire 7000 does not power on


If the laptop does not power up (not a slight sign of power flowing through it) even if the AC adapter is plugged into it, here are the possibilities:

1. You AC adapter might be broken and need to be replaced. Some AC adapters have a light on it to signify that there's power flowing from the power outlet to the power cable.

2. If your AC adapter is working fine, maybe your power supply is broken. If your laptop is with in warranty, have Acer replace it. If not, find a repair center who does.
