Question about Acer Aspire 5600 Series 5630-6951 Laptop

1 Answer

Acer Aspire 5600

This is just a follow up on the solution that you posted for my laptop.

When I plug in the AC adapter with or without the battery, I can hear some sort of whistling from the AC adapter even though the light on it is still on.

If you think it's still the power jack after I told you this I would not hesitate to tear the laptop up to change the power jack.

You still need to test the AC cord better.. Wiggling it in different areas to see if there is a break in the wires.... That is why i said watch for the Power light (when I say Power Light, not the one on the ac adapter cord... the power light on your laptop...)to see if it flickers or turns off at any point while you're testing the cord... If you have a Solid Lighted Power Light the whole time youre testing the AC cord (bending & wiggling it) then it is probably not the cord itself and i would then lean towards the DC jack...

I have an acer aspire one aand even though I plug it up it says (plugged in, not charging.) How do I make it charge?


Hi,
Welcome to FixYa!
Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

It just wont turn on i have checked the power lead and its ok its an acer aspire 5050 laptop


Hi. I would suggest you double check the ac adapter if the powercord is properly attach to it ot also you might want to try powerdraining or powercycling your computer. To do this you must turn off your laptop then remove the battery and unplug the ac adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds while the battery and ac adapter is out, after that place back the battery and plugin the ac adapter and try turning on your laptop, if this doesnt work then try power draining it again and just use the ac adapter or just plug it in without the battery then try again turning it on. If it still has the power issue then try a known good ac adapter so that you could double check that it is not an ac adapter issue or a battery issue. If all that trouble shooting step doesnt work then you could also try calling acer tech support to help you on your issue if your machine or laptop is still under warranty they would help you fix it by sending that laptop to there depot without any charge. Hope this Helps

Battery was running out on my Acer mini book, hibernated and turned of, tried to turn it on nothing happened., used ac adaptor....still nothing


take battery out, unplug ac adapter. Wait one minute. leave battery out. Plug in ac adapter and turn on laptop. Once it turns back on. Shut down laptop and put battery back in. Now you should be able to turn laptop on with or without battery.

Wireless not working when ac adapter plugged in


It looks like you've changed the settings to turn off the wireless when AC adapter is preset. Try going into Acer Power Management and make sure Wireless Lan is selected on your Power Plan.

If you've replaced the battery and the AC Adapter, the only thing left is the motherboard.

A couple companies advertise MB repair for this model

Laptop was working fine, but doesn't turn on anymore...


a5e3d98.jpg You might have a Loose DC Power Jack.. Or.. if you're using the same AC Power cord for both laptops that you tested, you apparently have a break(short) in the Power charging cord which is quite common...

To Test the cord..take the battery out and try to boot with just the AC power cord plugged in, If it does'nt power up, try turning and slightly twisting the plug into the port.. LOOK to see if the power light is on or flickers...
