Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

Acer 3680 will not turn on at all

Was working fine last nite and today when I tried to turn on, it will not turn on. When Power cord is connected, the battery status light is green. Pressing the ON button flickers the status light but will not turn on the computer. Pulled the battery out and put back in, no difference. Pulled the battery out and connected power cord and turn on, nothing happens. Pressed ON button hard just to make sure it is in place, nothing happens. It is completely dead. However, the battery status light is on (either green or amber depending on whether battery is fully charged or not). Is it time to open this computer and look inside? What should I look for?
Thanks

    Tried it and didn't work. I am now thinking about taking the power supply out and replace it. Do I need to completely open the bottom of this computer to get the power supply out?

    Thanks

    Battery is fine on this laptop. If the power supply is part of the motherboard, then it may be the motherboard. Is there anyway to check if motherboard is OK? Thanks

ACER 3680 battery does not recharge. I have replaced it twice. Can you help?


A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective.

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.

Will not turn on


Try removing the battery and reinserting again. If that doesn't work then you will need to take it in to a service centre for them to fix.

Battery will not charge nor is able to use AC power to stay on.


Hi everyone it seems to me that the DC connector is loose inside your laptops,try wiggling it about gently at the charger to laptop cord nearer to the dc socket to verify this.Only solution is resolder or new dc socket.

Possibly powerplug!


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. . .
