Question about ASUS A8J Laptop AC Power Adapter (4.3A 75Watts) by Amstron (Generic) AC Adapter

1 Answer

Hello. Today in the morning my laptop (Asus A8Jseries) was working alright. Then after 6 hours when i tried to turn it on, it didn't. I mean, it starts to work and Asus symbol comes alone, but then it just shuts down. The thing is that my charge adapter is blinking whenever i plug it in into laptop. When it is not plugged in, it has normal green light. Once i plug it in, it starts to blink, so does the lamp on pannel of my laptop. I cannot even imagine what is wrong. Moreover, without battery it does not work also. My laptop is working from cahrge adapter for a year.

If it happens only when you move the adapter plug inside the power jack, it's likely that you have a problem with the power jack inside the laptop. The power jack has to be resoldered or replaced.
If it happens even without touching the adapter plug, the problem could be related to the faulty power adapter.
You can test the power adapter with a voltmeter and find out if the ouputed voltage is correct. If the voltage is not correct, replace the adapter.

But don't trust that even if the output votage matches specifications. It's possible that the power adapter doesnt' work correctly under load. Test your laptop with another known good adapter. If the laptop works fine with another adapter, your power adapter is defective and has to be replaced.

Nothing happens when I rub my mouse keyboard on my Asus Transformer T100. How do I get it to be visible


Ok I have been thinking about your problem. How long did you actually charge your Asus Transformer?
You might need to charge it about 8 hours minimum to get it to work efficiently. Try that and see what happens.

Asus A52F-X3 not working


Hello,

It might be an overheating issue or the laptop has some dirt inside it so it cannot boot. It could also be a defective hard drive.The best thing that I could advice you is to bring that to a technician because that's a complicated issue (hardware related) and only a technician can fix that.

There is no external inline fuel filter, no manufacturer uses them anymore. There is a nylon fine mesh screen on the inlet to the electric fuel pump, it never needs to be serviced unless the fuel pump is being replaced. Most often even then you just wash it out in Stoddard solvent
