Most laptops push a lot of power through that plug.
Have someone who knows about repairing them take a look to make sure the lead is the problem first, otherwise, it is a problem inside the laptop.
The contacts inside the laptop overheat and become unsoldered. A good repair shop should be able to fix it without new parts by resoldering the connection inside the unit.

My acer extensa 5620z does not charge nor works connected

If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

My laptop won't charge. I have an acer aspire 5315 that won't charge, I had problems with the charging adapter before so I thought that was the problem and replaced it, the replacement worked for...

For a test -Remove the battery from the laptop. (leave it out) -Plug in the adapter and turn the laptop on. -Gently wiggle the adapter plugged in

If the computer powers off the solder and/or pins have broken loose from the DC jack. This is very common. Average repair bill is around $150, if your in the Denver Colorado Area I can do the repair for about $50
If it won't turn on while you wiggle the adapter and hit the power button then the adapter is bad again sadly

Battery won't hold a charge

If your battery will not hold a charge when it has been taken out of the bike and charged in a stand-alone setting, then one or more of the cells has become sulfated and has gone "dead." Also, as lead acid batteries age, each cell naturally loses the ability to hold its full charge, even if they're still providing the right voltage. I've found that motorcycle batteries are finicky--I've had brand name batteries fail after a single riding season, and I had one generic battery that lasted me for 4+ years of steady riding in summer heat and New England winter cold.

If your battery will hold a charge (and pass a battery load test, available for free at just about any auto parts store) when it is out of your bike but goes dead after it's installed in your bike, you have an open circuit in your bike that is draining the battery even after the key has been pulled from the ignition. One way to check for this problem is by going to the fuse box and pulling each fuse, one at a time, and using a multimeter to bridge the fuse terminals to see if current is present. Unless you have something like an electronic alarm and/or a clock built into your instrumentation, you should see no voltage across any of the fuse terminals. If you do see voltage, then it's time to start troubleshooting why this is occurring. The most likely places for a short circuit are in the ignition switch itself (an internal contact may have gotten distorted and thus provide power even when it shouldn't be) and, less likely, if the insulation has worn through in the hot lead off your battery or any of the wires that branch off that lead.

I would not be surprised if your battery has sulfated and simply needs to be replaced.

Acer 5315, no power on battery or power lead, charger light is on the charger, no lights on the computer.

Try a mains (ATX) reset.

- Remove power lead and battery.
- Press and hold the power button for 20 seconds.
- Replace power cable only.
- Test.

Failing this, you'll need to try and swap test your charger for another, to see if it might just be that.

My laptop will not charge up propley It will only

It might be either the battery on the laptop is faulty or the transformer is faulty, if you can try with another of those and see if you get to guess which one is the faulty one.

I have aan Acer Aspire 5315 which is 2 and a half years old. The battery died so I plugged in the cable in the usual way and nothing happened no lights came on. I assumed the powercable needed replacing...

The power ports are generally the problem. If you wiggle the wire and get contact that is almost sure that is it. The Internet has folks that will fix this problem. shows how to repair it yourself.

Acer aspire 5315 batt problem


Please run this unit on A/C only and see if it powers up like that. If it does not, then the A/C adapter is faulty and thus cannot charge your battery.

Service the battery by hitting it flat onto your hand palm or onto the back of your shoe and retry to see if it is charging.

My acer aspire 5315 doesnt charge properly.

I'm sorry to say that your initial fears are correct and the pin that the adapter connects to in the laptop is loose. This is a common problem with laptop's and can be easily dealt with.
Now I'm not going to tell you to open the laptop up and de-solder the adapter (unless you want me to).
Because this is a fiddly job and you have to order the correct adapter i recommend you take it to a reputable repair store and have them replace the adapter for you, don't let them tell you that you need a new motherboard as this is not the case at all, adapters can and do get regularly get fixed and is not that expensive.

Good luck.
