Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

Charging I bought my Laptop in Mid June 2007. Within months the Mother Board needed to repair and Now when I plug in my laptop it won't accept a charge until i shove it in with force and keep holding it until its charge which can take hours. How can I get it to stay charged without pushing it in for long periods of time?

The ac adapter connector probably needs to be re-soldered or replaced. You will have to have it serviced.

I have a HP Probook 4510s, and it won't accept


I'm afraid it looks like the charging circuit on the mainboard is dead and is very hard if impossible to re-work so it looks like it will have to have the m/board replaced.
I was an engineer for Acer and saw a lot of these issues but unfortunately most of them were not repairable.

Will not charge battery,have bought new battery, continues to go into not charging mode. Gateway model MA7 charger output 19.27v confirmed


If you are not getting any thing when just the charger is plugged in and either no battery or the battery is dead, but the system will run on a fully charged battery. There may be a problem with the motherboard that a DC jack replacement will not help.. some of the traces sandwiched in the mid-plain on the mother board might have corroded away and need to be bypassed .. check my blog for pictures on how this can be done. http://cegeekbook.blogspot.com/2010/07/gateway-ma7-mx6930-no-power-will-not.html

Inspiron 1501 charging problem


should find out why the original charger stopped working in the first place... was it a faulty mother board really. anyway if the ratings on the charger you bought are for that laptop indeed, then it should power up the laptop minus the battery. ofcourse if you put in charger minus battery, dont expect it to show the charging led..just try to power it on
Regards

A few months ago my Dell Vostro 1500 laptop started saying that my battery could not be detected. I bought this laptop new in October 2007 and did not extend my warranty. I bought a new battery and...


Normally the message means that the battery is bad and needs to be replaced. There is a chance the new battery you got was defective and went bad before its time.

The motherboard can be the problem, although it is not common for this to be the case.

I would try one more battery before thinking about a new motherboard, a new battery is under a $100 where a new mobo is several hundred, and usually this is a sign of a bad battery. If you disconnect the ac adapter and it stays on then it is using the battery, although it is reporting that it cannot see a charge. I would guess the battery malfunctioned and is not being able to be read by the laptop.

My lenovo ideapad Y510 laptop won't charge or turn on.


Less $$ to replace the laptop after you figure in the cost of the motherboard + labor to have it installed.

Shut down problem


Hi,

The notebook switches off because the battery has not been properly replenished/recharged. probable problem may be with the battery itself, the AC adapter/charger or the plug/jack.

Common causes of similar problems are a loose connection or a cold solder on the DC jack at the end of the laptop. In some instances, it could be the actual charger/AC adapter that may be at fault. This however could be verified with the use of a voltmeter measuring the DC voltage at the output plug. As to the DC jack, it would be more of a concern opening the laptop and exposing the underneath of the motherboard (where the solder are) rather than the actual repair which is soldering. Incidentally, there are cases where the terminals/pins of the DC jack might have been cut off hence a replacement may be required. Perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
