Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook

1 Answer

1 Light away from dead?

My 5610z will not power up. When plugged into an outlet through its transformer, the battery light is on, but it will not power up from the power button. As you would expect when I disconnect from the transformer, the battery light goes out and it still won't start (or make a sound) when I depress the power button. Suggestions?

    I have removed the battery and plugged in the transformer. No lights. I have checked the transformer and it is putting out the correct 19 volts. I have dissasembled the battery and found that the three sets of batteries are each producing 3.99 volts. This of coars does not mean the battery is good because there is circuitry inside. Is there any place to get the schematic for the battery?

Remove the battery and plug in the transformer. Then try to power up. Sometimes a faulty battery prevents a laptop from booting. (Such was the case for me).

Power does not on my laptop


This could be one of several reasons. The most common reasons that a laptop won't power up are a dead battery, or a non-functioning charging chord. My first step would be to plug the laptop into an outlet in the wall that I know for a fact works. If I am unfamiliar with that specific plug, I will plug something into that outlet that makes noise or light. Such as a lamp, stereo, or phone charger. After you have verified that the wall is giving electricity to the charging chord, the next step is to check the next step in the power chain. That would be where the chord from the wall plugs into the transformer box, that plugs into the laptop itself. So the first step is to check that the outlet that charges the laptop is receiving power. As a side not just because a top plug is getting power does not mean that a bottom plug is as well in my experience. After power received, next check connections. Those connections will include the transformer connection, and the laptop connection. Also you may wish to check for cut, loose, frayed, taped, kinked, or otherwise dangerous looking chords. I also do not recommend using third party Universal laptop chargers bought from the store. I only would use one of these in an emergency situation. I don't trust the power regulation. And on top of that a laptop charger chord is so much cheaper on-line if you buy from somewhere like e-bay. That charger will be laptop model specific. Generally a new charger is about $15-35 on e-bay, and a new battery could be as cheap as $50. Although I would also recommend finding out if your laptop is under warranty. If it is within a year old this is a good possibility. That route takes a lot of patience, but it is usually free.

Acer Aspire 5610Z dead battery & malfunctioning power adapter


But before you buy a new battery, You need to again repair the power plug where your adaptor's plug is inserted so that it will not create any problem later. There might be loose connection or sort wiring.. Good luck..

Battery light blinking red during charging


Dell or Panasonic? Your post has both listed.

If the blinking light on a Dell is yellow or amber or orange (somewhere in that color range) and continues to blink the entire time it is plugged into AC power (wall outlet) and when you unplug it from the wall the laptop immediately dies .... then you battery is dead and needs replaced.

If the blinking light stops after a while (perhaps a minute?) and then turns green while plugged into AC power, then it is successfully charging - or so it thinks.

When you unplug it from the wall, does it stay up and running?
If it runs, it's OK - just ignore the light and plan on getting a new battery one day, start browsing now. :)
If it dies immediately upon unplugging, then your battery is dead and needs replaced.

Shut off and won't come back. It's like it is dead.


follow this procedure:
1. unplug the ac adapter and keep it unplugged.
2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds(Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up)
4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (A power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in)
5. Normally power on the notebook.
6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up. If the battery indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.

My new itouch will not boot up. It just seems to be dead


Check the wall outlet where the Power Transformer is plugged in and verify that it has current by using a lamp or something like that. If ok, then...
Check the laptop battery for charge state. The indicater light should show full or good charge. If not, the battery could be dead....
If no current from the adapter, the battery goes dead in 2-3 hours of use.

Wont turn on


Hi,

you have one of 3 things wrong here.

1:) the battery is dead, and needs to be replaced ( suggest e-bay china seller for cheapest )
2:) the AC adaptor or dc socket on the motherboard is Faulty.
3:) motherboard fault, regarding charging circuit board.

Go for the most cost effective option First. New Battery. Then AC Adaptor. Finally would be motherboard replacement.
