The poor design of the power pin is a major source of problems on almost all laptops. Do a google search for power pin problems and you'll see what I mean.

Problem stems from jerking or tugging on the cable. Every laptop should come with a cable retention device to keep from damaging the fragile power pin.

This video has some pretty good information about it. . .

My boyfriend bought his acer aspire 3680 back in april 07. he went to take the power cable out and the dc component inside broke. we had it fixed at a local computer shop within 3 weeks (much cheaper at £60 than sending it away). the socket inside could not be fixed but was replaced with an extended cable with the connector on the outside.
sounds like the connector/jack has an ongoing problem. the laptop is now mine and i have no problems with the extra piece of cable.

I have Acer Aspire 3680-2022 notebook. I still have power instability after buying a new a/c adapter & new battery. When a/c plugged in, battery can randomly & rapidly drop...I get a lot of...


Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

I have an acer aspire 3680 computer, Before the battery wasnt working so i bought a new one. Well now the battery came and i tried to charge it, but its not indicateing that its charging and won't charge...


Taking the fact that you already replaced the battery into consideration, chances are that you have a faulty cord. Looks like you're going to need a new one mate.

Says plugged in not charging


Take out the battery and make sure you can turn on the laptop with just the AC Adaptor hooked up.

If you can then you know the AC Adaptor is good. Try another known good working battery in the laptop, if the battery charges then you know that the old battery is bad.

If the laptop doesn't charge with a know working battery or a new one then you know that the motherboard is bad.
