    Having same problem. Works fine on mains, but when going mobile, battery indicator light is green, but 0% charged. Dead as a door nail. Replaced battery with new believing battery was the problem. New battery shows 0% charging and then the light flashes, but never charges. Works fine on mains; nothing with battery. Acer 5050-3371

    Same problem found here. Acer 505-3371

    Laptop stopped working mobile, but was fine when using mains. Green indicator light on, showing full of charge, but had 0% charge. Dead as a door nail. Replaced battery with new and the indicator light stays yellow, never charging new battery. Unable to use laptop without mains. Pretty much useless without mains.

  • JazzyJazz111 Nov 27, 2008

    The laptop has said "plugged in, not charging" for a month now. I've reset, unplugged and replugged the charger and it hasn't worked. I don't know what else to do and this laptop is too expensive to break after a year.

Batter wont stay charge


Most laptop batteries have a life expectancy of two years or 400 to 450 charge and discharge cycles. After this time, the battery may lose the ability to charge or to hold a charge for substantial periods of time. When this happens, it's likely the battery needs replacement. However, troubleshooting can narrow the problem and ensure you are not wasting money on a battery replacement.

Check Power Adapter Turn the laptop off. Remove any power cords or power sources. Separate the battery from the bottom of the laptop. Slide or press the locking mechanism to unlock the battery. Slide the battery out of the battery compartment. Plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Insert the opposite end of the adapter into the charging outlet on the side of a laptop. Power on the laptop. If the laptop does not turn on, the power adapter is not correctly working. If the power adapter is not working, the battery can not charge. Replace the power adapter. If the laptop powers on, the power adapter is properly working. Clean Battery Contacts Turn the computer off. Remove any power cords or sources. Take the battery out of the battery compartment. Dip a cotton swab in isopropyl alcohol. Rub the dampened swab on the battery compartment and battery contacts. Dust and buildup can prevent battery contacts from properly charging. Slide the battery back into the battery compartment. b> Charge and Test Battery Plug the power adapter into the laptop. Charge the battery for six hours. Remove the power adapter. Turn the laptop on. If the laptop turns on and stays on for at least 30 minutes, the battery is holding a charge. If the laptop doesn't turn on or the battery doesn't power the laptop for at least 30 minutes, the battery should be replaced.

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.

BATTERY DOESN'T CHARGE ON MY ACER ASPIRE ONE MOD#KAV60


Sounds like the battery might be bad. Try another battery in the laptop and see if it charges. If it does then you know the other battery is bad.
If you try another known working battery and it still wont charge, then try another AC Adapter. If you still cant get the laptop battery to charge then at that point the motherboard is bad because you will have tried another working batter and another working ac adapter.

My Acer aspire 4935 is not recognizing the AC adapter. When ever I shutdown the system and connects the AC adapter, it works and the charging LED lights up. Once I press the power button to boot the...


Problem description:The battery charges only when the laptop turned off. The battery charge LED lights up as normal and the battery gets charged to 100% while the laptop is off.
When the laptop is turned on, the battery charge LED goes off even if the adapter is still plugged in.
Possible cause:1. AC power adapter failure.
2. Battery failure.
3. Broken/loose power jack.
4. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:1. This problem could be related to a faulty AC power adapter. It's possible that the AC adapter doesn't provide enough power when plugged into the laptop. To find out if this is your problem, you'll have to test the laptop with another working adapter.Replace the adapter if needed.

2. There is a slight chance that you have bad battery. Test the laptop with a know good battery and replace the faulty one if needed.

3. The battery charge problem could be related to the power jack. Maybe the jack is broken or not making good contact with the motherboard. It is necessary to remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. Resolder or replace the jack if needed.

4. If the power jack is in a good working shape and new power adapter with battery do not fix the problem, most likely you have a faulty motherboard. Replace the motherboard if needed.

My acer extensa 5220 doesnt charge and there are nil lights showing. How do i test the battery adapter. Or please suggest other options to try.


Unless you have a voltmeter or multimeter, then you can only test your battery charger by removing your batter and try to start up your computer with only your charger plugged in. If it boots up, then the problem isn't likely to be with your batter charger, but with the battery itself. Sometimes an adapter will power up a latop but not charge the battery.

I have an Acer Aspire 4520 and the batter will not stay charged and it keeps shutting down even though I have it plugged in. Please help.


Hi there, please perform power drain first. Take out the battery and unplug the power adapter. Press and hold the power button for 30secs. Put the battery back in, plug in the power adapater then turn on the computer. If same issue will occur then you need to replace your battery.

Battery wont charge


Well the battery is dead. I don't understand your question. You have always been using it on AC adapter, but today you tried using it on battery and the battery was dead? Use the AC adapter and watch the battery and see if it charges. If not take the battery out and then put back in and make sure it is snug so the contacts are touching..if it still does not charge then you need to notify Acer, its under warranty and tell them the battery does not charge and you want a new one..if you have any questions let me know..
pls rate this with 4 diamonds then you can still ask any questions you like.

Acer laptop 3620 battery will not charge


You may want to check the A/C port. Some the ports can come loose from the motherboard due to wear. Can you tell if the computer is getting a charge from the A/C adapter?
