Ok, it seems that this is a pretty common issue. I found a youtube video showing how to get around this. I watched some of it, the guys seems pretty competent. however, you might not be comfortable taking this thing apart or doing what he is doing. However, it is a relatively simple thing to fix for a competent repair person and I looked up new power assembly and they run around $25 on ebay. Here is the link for the video I found:

There were a couple of other videos also that I didn't watch. However, if you just need this thing to work for a while and you intend to replace it in the near future and just need to get by for a short while, this should work. If you intend to keep this long term you might want to take it to a computer repair shop. Good luck. hope this helps.

Try removing battery, press and hold power button for 5 seconds, wait a minute, put battery back in and then try it again. If problem persists, then power supply is likely bad.

Broken Power Pin


Your model has a power jack that is soldered to the mainboard.

Yes, this is a common problem with a lot of notebooks. It usually happens when someone walks by and trips on the power wire and pulls the notebook off the desk / table and onto the floor.

Unless you're comfortable with taking it apart, and good with a soldering iron, you should take it to a repair shop.

If you ARE comfortable with doing so, the power jack can be purchased from several suppliers on Ebay, for about $12 including shipping. Just do a search for "aspire 3680 jack" and you will see them.

PS: Most shops charge $100-$150 to replace the jack.
