Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

I have an acer lcd monitor .when i power on the blue buttom acer logo displays for seconds and then black screen ;did anyone had this trouble i check the mainboad power it seems ok

hi how about the power light indicator does stay?. if no, it was a power supply failure. if the light stay then no display totally black it could be either the back light, inverter board or in the logic board ( main board ). to isolate the problem you will need a digital tester, to check turn the power on then check the inverter_on signal if their is a voltage around 4vdc and have a 12v dc supply then the logic board is good. it was an inverter board failure, check for shorted component.

The red light is just a pilot light indicating that it is still
connected to the power line. To get it totally off, is to
unplug the unit from the outlet. If your PC is connected
to the AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator), just turn the
power switch off at the AVR. Hope this help you.
