Yes i bought an emachine laptop and had it for a while now, and i was wondering, i always use it and leave it charge all night well now it won't charge at all and it won't even turn on !! Can you please...


Hi,
There could be to reasons , that the laptop is not charging.
1. The battery may have reached end of its charging cycle( Laptop batteries need to be replaced after 1 year to 1.5 Years of use)
2. A faulty ac adapter can also cause the same issue.

The best step forward, would be first try checking it with an alternate adapter.

Thanks for using Fixya

Acer laptop shut of during power outage .


From the Acer website:
Product
Notebook
Issue
Power Issues or Will not Boot
Solution
If the notebook does not power on:

Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.

If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a ‘power reset' of the notebook.
  1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
  2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
  3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
  4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
  5. Normally power on the notebook.
  6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
  7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
    If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.
Also, depending on whether your power went down "clean" (quick and stayed off), or went down and quickly came back on and off many times. Or when it came back on "clean" (came back on quick and stayed on), or it came on then off many times, your power supply may have been damaged from the power surges Are you having any problems with any other appliances?

Acer aspire 4920 charging mechanism failed


Most laptops, as in 99%, have one board and everything is on it. They don't really have a power supply since the AC adpater provides DC voltage already. There is just a voltage divider that take the incomming voltage and changes it to the various voltages the machine needs. The charging mechanism is also on the mainboard. I've very seldom seen a seperate power or charging board in a laptop. Unfortunately since you've already replaced the battery and the ac adapter and since the adapter is powering the laptop then there is definitely a problem with the charging circuitry on the mainboard. This isn't something one can repair unless you start changing micro components and ICs on the board which isn't recommended. Looks like a new mainboard or a new laptop is in your future if you want it to run off battery.

Another option is to get an external battery that mimics your ac adapter but that wouldn't give you a very long run time compared to the internal battery.

Don't forget to rate my solution in your premium thread as FixYa if you think I helped solve your problem. Thanks.

Acer aspire 4920g charging mechanism failed


Have you tested the adapter to see if there is any power getting to your notebook period. Use a multimeter to check for DV voltage. If you can't get your multimeter probe into the middle of the plug then I use a paper click to get in there. If your adapter is not supplying any voltage then there is a problem with it. I get a replacement adapter for my wife's Acer on eBay for about $30. Just search eBay for 4920g and you should get quite a few hits for the ac adapter or power cord.

If the adapter is providing power then the motherboard in your notebook is faulty since you've already replaced the battery. A replacement motherboard might be available from eBay. Replacing the motherboard could be complicated depending on your experience so I would leave that up to a notebook technician. An Acer certified shop may also be able to sell you a replacement motherboard.

I don't think it's the motherboard, my money is on the adapter. Test it out or have it tested.

Hi when i turn my ACER 5315 LAPTOP on it runs for 5-10secs before turning off again please help thanks


Hi,


We can try some work around to narrow down the issue.

I think your notebook might be getting power from the Ac adapter. The remaining power in the battery might be giving power for few seconds and trning OFF again.

To check this, once remove the battery from the notebook and turn on the laptop with only AC adapter.

If there is no power at all, then what I guess is correct. Issue might be with the AC adapter or with the power jack on the motherboard.

If the notebook turns ON even with the Ac adapter and turned off aftetr few seconds without battery, then you have to contact service center as it could be the hardware issue.

It ia an acer aspire 3004 laptop. The battery charging % remins at 74% all the time and when I remove the power the lap top turnsoff completely.


Hello,

Well it surely shows that the battery is not providing backup to the laptop. There could be few reasons for the same defective and faulty battery is one of them.

However i will give you a step which you should try once and see if it makes any difference.

Method (Power cycle)

You need to remove the battery, adapter and any other device connected to the computer (May be any additional cards or any wires as for Ethernet or speakers or external mouse/keyboard).

Nothing should be connected at all.

Now Press and hold the power button for 25 seconds (It wont show anything). This is a step to release any static charges developed, which may surely caused the kind of issue you are facing.

Now connect the battery and the adapter and check whether it is charging the battery and provides you the backup.

The usual battery life is said to be 1 year. if you are using an older battery, kindly get the same checked as well.

Hope his will help. Please let me know what happens.

Regards
Sammy

Backup you files and documents to DVD then reload Windows using the restore DVDs or CDs the notebook came with. This will solve your space issue as well as your mass storage controller error.

Also sounds like you may need a new AC adapter and battery, both should be faily easy and inexpensive to purchase on eBay. Just search by you Acer model number and both the AC adapter and battery should show up. I would at least get the AC adapter, sounds like there is a break in your cable. I got one for my wife's Acer for under $30.

It could be one of three things. It could be a bad battery, a bad ac adapter, or the recharging circuitry could be bad. I would try pulling the battery out, and see if the laptop will startup and run strictly off of the ac adapter. If that does not work, you have a bad ac adapter. If that works, and the battery has any charge left, try running it strictly on the battery. If it doesnt work, you have a bad battery. If it does work, the circuitry is bad and you will probably need new motherboard. One other thing you can check is where the ac adapter and battery plug into the laptop, and make sure there is no corrosion that could be causing a short.
