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...

AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.


So your saying the charger will charge the battery, as long as the laptop is off...But when it is charged, you remove the ac adapter, start up the laptop, running on battery power alone, then hook the ac adapter to it, and the laptop cuts off..???

My acer 5920 wont charge or wont work on ac adaptor but the ac adaptor works fine on my friends laptop


Either the AC port on the back of your laptop has a lose connection - if operation without battery is an issue, or if battery charge only is issue - then battery may have to be reseated or it is at end of life. Test by removing battery and running AC alone. if connection port is bad, laptop will power off immediately/unexpectedly. Good luck! btw - batteries for this unit are around $40 on ebay

4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

Acer aspire laptop won't charge


Hi,
First of all you have to determine whether it's the battery, charger or the laptop itself.
Remove the battery and boot the laptop on AC power only, if the laptop boots up you can rule out the charger and the laptop, you may need a new battery if that is the case.



Regards.
