The adapter light is on when first plugged in but then when I connect the adapter to my laptop the light goes off and it doesnt supply any power


I suggest check out the AC adapter first.

1) When plugged into power, and plugged into the laptop, gently wiggle the cable from the AC adapter TO laptop.

Any change?

Do the same on the power cord TO AC adapter.

NO?
Go on.

2) The port on the laptop that the plug from the AC adapter plugs into, is the DC Power Jack.
If we are discussing an Acer Aspire 5738Z Notebook PC, the DC Power Jack resembles this one, (Not installed),

http://www.batterysupport.com/acer-aspire-5738-jack-p-302046.html

(When I note the DC Power Jack, it is this link I will be referring to )

As you can see there is a Center Pin. All power removed from the laptop, use a small wooden, or plastic object, and see if this pin moves around.

ANY perceptible movement means a bad DC Power Jack.

DC Power Jack checks out it's back to the AC adapter.
Wanted to perform the easy diagnosis first.

This will require a multimeter. An economical, yet fine for this test multimeter, can be purchased for as little as $8 to $12.

Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example.
Analog or digital is fine.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bF3OyQ3HwfU

(Analog is fine. Some of us still like 'em)

DC Voltage is what you are going to check.

Black probe lead (Negative) goes in the Common port on the multimeter. (COM)
Red probe lead (Positive) goes in the Voltage port on the multimeter. (V)

If the multimeter just has symbols around the Function Knob, set it to the dotted line over a solid line, symbol.

The plug on the end of the AC adapter, that plugs into the laptop, has a center hole, and a cylindrical metal shield surrounding it.

The Center Hole of the plug is where the red Positive lead, of the multimeter goes.

The outside cylindrical metal shell is where the black Negative lead of the multimeter goes.

Hold the AC adapter plug in one hand, and at the same time hold the red Positive multimeter probe in the center hole.

With the other hand touch the black Negative lead of the multimeter, to the cylindrical metal shield on the outside of the plug.

You should read 19 Volts (DC), or VERY close to it,

I believe the AC adapter is the problem. Post back in a Comment as to your findings.

I have an Acer Aspire one NAV50 travelmate adapter but I don't have a plug. Is there anyway I can get the plug separately?


Are you talking about the cord that goes from the adapter to the wall? If so, any electronics supply store like Radio Shack should be able to source it. If not you can try DIGIKEY.com.

Laptop won't a hold charge when plugged in


Remove the Laptops Battery, Plug in AC Adapter... Is it able to Stay Powered On?? Slightly wiggle the Cord Near the plug end while plugged in... Does it still receive true power??? If So, Its Not Your AC Adapter Or Your DC Jack And You should Look into Replacing Your Laptops Battery...

If You Are Not Able To Power THe Laptop Using Just The AC Adapter When The Battery Is Removed, Then You First Need To Check/Test The AC Adapter using A Multimeter To See If You Have A Faulty Cord... If Cord Is Still Getting Correct Power Through To The Plug Tip .. Then You Will Need To Replace The DC Jack (the port where your AC Adapter Plug Plugs into on the laptop)

Full breakdown and replacement of the power jack should be no more than $125 - you can find places on eBay for that.

ACER 3680 battery does not recharge. I have replaced it twice. Can you help?


A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective.

Battery will not charge nor is able to use AC power to stay on.


Hi everyone it seems to me that the DC connector is loose inside your laptops,try wiggling it about gently at the charger to laptop cord nearer to the dc socket to verify this.Only solution is resolder or new dc socket.

My charger won't work so now my computer wont turn on


Unplug you ac adapter from the wall and plug a lamp in to verify that the wall plug is working correctly. Pick up the adapter to see if it feels warm. Most adapters will feel warmer than room temperature if they are working,
If the cords on your adapter can be unplugged from the adapter, reseat them. Try the ac adapter in another wall plug to see if it comes on. The adapter may have an LED on it that indicates whether or not it is on. If it doesn't, about the only way to check it is to use a multimeter to see if there is any voltage on the plug that goes into the back of the laptop. If something else will work in the original wall plug and the adapter won't work in another wall plug, you will need to obtain another ac adapter.
Once you've tried these things, let me know and we'll go from there.
Thanks!
