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.

My laptop is Acer Aspire 4520. It is only charging when it is off. I can use the laptop until the charged battery goes low bat and it will shut down. But when I use it with a Power adaptor, it always goes...


If your adaptor is not supplying enough current, it won't be able to run the laptop and charge at the same time.
Try a new adaptor. Cheap as anything on ebay!

BROKEN POST FOR POWER ADAPTOR GOING TO BOARD.IS THE CIRCUIT BOARD REPLACEABLE OR CAN I REPLACE THE POWER BLOCK PART? ACER 3680 - 2007 MODEL


If the pin on the power socket itself has broken, then you are in luck because Acer uses a satellite board for its power to the motherboard, so no soldering is needed. I'm including a link below for a replacement board to get you back up and running.....

Says plugged in not charging


Take out the battery and make sure you can turn on the laptop with just the AC Adaptor hooked up.

If you can then you know the AC Adaptor is good. Try another known good working battery in the laptop, if the battery charges then you know that the old battery is bad.

If the laptop doesn't charge with a know working battery or a new one then you know that the motherboard is bad.

If the power adapter light is not on, even when not connected to the computer, you have a bad power adapter.
