DC Jack diagnosis:
1. Test power adapter for output voltage. Bend the power cable in various directions while doing this to be sure that there is no broken conductors in the cable.
2. If power adapter is Ok, connect it & see if the power LED on the laptop will glow when you jiggle the power connector in various directions. If yes, then the DC jack might be loose or damaged, & need to be either re-soldered or replaced.
3. If not, then disassemble the laptop. Remove any components that attach to the laptop's motherboard first (e.g. battery, hard drive, RAM, wireless card, optical drive, ... etc.)
4. Next, remove the keyboard & the LCD screen.
5. Finally, unscrew all screws that hold the upper cover & lower cover together so that you could gain access to the motherboard.
6. Inspect the solder points connecting the DC jack to the motherboard. Make sure that none of them is loose. If any, re-solder them.
7. Inspect the center pin in the DC jack. Make sure that it is not broken or loose. If it is, then you might need to replace the DC jack.
8. When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.

The charging port of my acer 5251 is broken, so I cannot charge my battery. Is there any way to charge the battery externally? Thanks


Charger connector breakage is a common problem in this type of device. The practical answer is to repair or replace the connector so that you can recharge the battery in the normal way.

I have an Acer 7736Z the battery isn't charging. The BIOS on the acer support website give me version 2.10 which doesn't seem to match the directions given from previous questions and solution


If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it with a new one.

To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,

If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.

To test the charger:
1.Unplug the charger from the present laptop,
2.Connect it to another laptop to see if it will charge.

If it charges the laptop, then it means the charger is alright, and if it does not charge the laptop, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

If it powers on, then it and charges, then it means the laptop is working fine, but if it does not charge, then it means the connection port of the laptop is bad.Hope this information was helpful.

I cannot get my laptop to start. I have bought a new power cord, and it will not charge or start. I have an acer aspire 7736z. What could the problem be?


Try removing the battery, it may be defective. Remove the battery and see if the unit powers up when plugged in.
Check to see if the charge light at least comes on when it's plugged in....if it doesn't, then the socket the power supply plugs into may need to be re-soldered.

Acer aspire 3680 power port


no, because the power connector is part of the motherboard and even if it can be soldered again not many manage to get the charger to charge up the battery again.
