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).

Manual test does not work Looks like it does but water does not come on

If the manual test doesn't work, I think the auto function won't work either. If that is true, your timer is running on the battery and there is no power. Remove the battery and see if it appears to be working. If not, check your outlet to ensure that there is 120 volts ac. Plug a light or shaver into the outlet. If the outlet is good and the clock has no power when the transformer is plugged, you probably need a new transformer.

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..

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


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.

Unit will not power up

Start with the simple fix first. Is the unit powered by a wall transformer or an ac line cord. When I have these problems I always start with the wall converter. Maybe it's dead. Substitute another converter of same or lower voltage. Does the unit power or at least light up? Bingo, Swap converters. Don't assume the converter is working. Ac line cord? Swap it out. Fuse on the unit? Check or replace it Final idiot fix - plug a test light into your ac outlet. Be sure it's live. I spent an hour frantically tracing power trouble on a PA set-up, only to discover ONE outlet in a duplex was bad. Now I check with a power test light first. ***************

Acer aspire 5610z laptop wont start.

well, first of all check the LED if it lights up when you plug the AC cord, if it goes on it means you got power. Otherwise, either the power supply or battery is dead. You should check if an OS was pre-installed.

I hate to ask this, but I have to..... Is there power at the wall outlet? Okay, now that the stupid question is out of the way (you'd be surprised how many service visits I've made for this)

make sure the AC cord between the wall and the transformer is in good shape and securely connected to the transformer. If you have a voltmeter, measure the voltage at the transformer end of the AC cable and make sure you have AC voltage there

If there is a light on your power adapter transformer, see it it is on.

If there is a light, and it's not on, but you have voltage at the AC cable, then the transformer is not working and must be replaced.

If there is no light or the light is on, check the DC voltage at the power connector that plugs into the laptop. The correct voltage should be written on the transformer casing.

If you have voltage there, then your battery may be faulty. Otherwise there is a problem with the circuit between the adapter inlet on the laptop and the battery.
