If it is under warranty bring it to local repair shop that does warranty work for Acer. They should be able to test if adapter is still ok or if it is the laptop. If it is the laptop itself will need to send in for repair.

Power/Power-on Issues


First find out if it is a laptop or a tower. If a laptop has to be sure that the power supply is the corresponding purchased, voltage, amps and Hz If not, the motherboard is out and you have to buy a new one. Also it could be that the problem was in the motherboard power connector. An important point when working with a computer or laptop is to be careful with the static and take proper precautions. Either way, and I recommend buying a new PC or laptop would be cheaper.

AC adapter 4750z


The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:

1.) Your charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.

2.) The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

3.) Your battery is faulty.

I think possibility 2 is the most likely, although you will have to test possibility 3 by removing the battery and plugging in your charger and seeing if the laptop powers on.If it does power on then that rules out possibility 1 and 2 leaving a faulty battery.

If you need to buy a new laptop charger, the following to adapters are for your reference:

Aspire 5251-1513 ac adapter broke


Don't do that if you are not good for repairing laptop. That will damage your laptop and be dangerous.

Either repair your laptop adapter or buy a new adapter. If you can't let your laptop charger repaired by yourself, you had better replace a new charger.If you are on a budget on a new charger, consider buying a third party charger:Intocircuit Acer Aspire 5251 AC Adapter 65Watt 19V 3.42A

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.

Acer aspire 5720 laptop charger not charging laptop: any help?


Laptop batteries age.

Yours may be simply going dead. This happens after a while. If it only holds a little charge, then you need a new battery which can run 20-50 dollars on ebay.

Otherwise, it is your charger. This is cheaper to replace and might cost 10 to 30 dollars from ebay.

Lastly, if none of the above, it is your laptop connector port. This is the worst to fix and might require repairs that are costly.

Keep in mind, if you are under warranty, all of the above are covered and you simply need to call Acer.

I've had my acer 5538 laptop for less than about a year now.. but now the charger isn't charging anywhere that i plug it in. what can i do?


Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? Ifnot then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Acer aspire 4520g cannot start


I am assuming it does this even if it is plugged into power supply. Try removing the battery and then re-installing it. Maybe it has come loose or has a bad connection. When the power supply is hooked up does it show that the laptop is charging? Have you left the charger on there overnight? Maybe the battery is really weak. It sounds like a bad battery to me but the only way to know for sure is to buy a new battery or test it with another good battery and see if it does the same thing.
