The DC input jack on the computer may be dirty or a bit corroded - there is a "switch" that moves when the jack is plugged in (a metal finger that switches from one position to another). If there is a bit of dirt on this it does not make proper contact. Unplug from power source and remove battery, try swabbing inside the jack on the computer with some alcohol - it may clean it enough to get back to normal.
Otherwise the jack can be replaced - a $10 part, but quite complicated to remove.

My acer netbook batteries will not charge. Any suggestions?


If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

My laptop won't charge. I have an acer aspire 5315 that won't charge, I had problems with the charging adapter before so I thought that was the problem and replaced it, the replacement worked for...


For a test -Remove the battery from the laptop. (leave it out) -Plug in the adapter and turn the laptop on. -Gently wiggle the adapter plugged in

If the computer powers off the solder and/or pins have broken loose from the DC jack. This is very common. Average repair bill is around $150, if your in the Denver Colorado Area I can do the repair for about $50
If it won't turn on while you wiggle the adapter and hit the power button then the adapter is bad again sadly

When connected to AC adapter the amber light for battery doesnt change to blue even after full charge.


Hello.

The most common reasons 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 the battery indicator flashes amber or is a steady amber, the
battery will probably needs to be replaced, since it's not charging fully.

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

Hope this helps.

The adapter is not charging the computer any more,I have to keep moving the power cord around to get it to charge now it stopped charging?


It sounds like a broken wire inside the power cord - if you can borrow someone else's that would prove/disprove that theory. I'm sure you can order a new one from the manufacturer or perhaps a used one on ebay.

Acer Aspire one battery won't charge. Please advise my options. Thanks


This problem is usually caused by either a worn out battery (if you've had it for quite a while) or a faulty adapter/power cord. If you know anyone who has a similar Acer Aspire One Netbook, you could try using their battery and/or power cord to narrow down the issue. You can also buy laptop/netbook batteries relatively cheap on eBay and even if the batter ends up not being the issue, you will have a spare battery to take with you or for down the road when your current battery wears out.
