Question about Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Status Didn't make it to Radio Shack but over the weekend did find enough time to harvest some 1000 mic caps from an old P II motherboard and replaced the bloated ones in the Acer. There is some improvement. Now when I press the front panel on switch, the fan comes on and will shut down if I hold the switch the required 9 seconds (before there was no response). There are no front panel lights, no video output and no apparent POST or boot activity.

Sounds like you could still have some blown caps on the 3V supply or worst still a blown regulator caused by excessive ripple from the faulty caps.

If the thing is now partialing powering up and your seeing fan activity the 12V and 5V rails are ok so im guessing theres a problem with the 3v3 rail. This could be down to more failed caps or a faulty regulator which could of been damaged by excessive ripple caused by the failed caps.

Best I can suggest is probing the regulators looking for the 3V3 rail, cant tell you which to probe as my boxes have been returned to the client now im afraid.

How to create my own layouts?


Both the MTX8000 B5 & B7 models are Type II Trunking. If you are (un)lucky enough you might find an F3 modem that does Type II.
If it is an MTX8000 and has a front mounted display with either a 6 button or full keypad, you have a radio that will do Type II.
There were a few B3's that were Type II produced by Motorola. However, you can clone a Type II code plug into a B3 radio and it will work just fine.
You can run system watch using a MTS2000 handheld. Firmware version has to be above 5.44 (which has a 512k controller in it). Most MTS2000/MTX8000's only have a 256k controller, which will not work. You can put the radio into RF modem mode from the F4-F4-F4 (Trunking Config).
NOTE: When the radio is in the RF MODEM mode, it will do a self test and then the screen will go blank. The radio DOES NOT have to be programed to the system you want to watch. You set SYSTEMWATCH to the Spectra with RIB mode (works best). Even watches Type I systems.
If you have the accessory adapter for the side connector on the radio, the typical schematic of the speaker mic looks like this.
If you are using a Public Safety speaker mic with the radio, you might want to order part number 3205514W01 to cover the antenna connector on the radio.
If you are trying to program a MTX-838, from what we've heard, you need to use the MTSX software. The RVN4097F ver R02.10.01 RSS package specifically shows it programs the following radios: MT/MTS2000 MTX838/8000/9000. Now, the update for this software is RVN4097M R06.00.00 05 Sept 97, which should mean that it should program the radio as well. The cable you need is the standard MTSX programming cable.
Do you want to build your own programming cable? If you don't want to use an old speaker mic cable, see the individual part numbers of the parts for the Service Cable, below.
You may want to look at the schematic for the RKN4035D Service Cable. This is the actual Motorola cable used for programming and servicing these radios.
The individual part numbers for the components of this cable are listed below.

My Acer AL2017 "flashes" on then off when I hit the power on button. It does it repeatedly. If I cycle power enough times it will eventually remain on.


This is the same issue I had AND....you can fix this by replacing 5 capacitors in the screen Power Board, So here we go: go to Radio Shack or similar store that sells capacitors and buy (3) 220 Microfarad capacitors Radio Shack Part Number 272-1029 and (2) 1000 Microfarad capacitors PN 272-1032. Now on your board you will see the bulging capacitors just remove them and replace them with the new ones. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION to the polarity, there is a negative stripe on the side of the capacitor. Make sure it goes back in the way the old one came out. Now the radio shack capacitors are 35vdc and the stock capacitors are 25vdc and the new capacitors are bigger in diameter but the difference is ok as long as the Microfarads are the same. Mine were replaced and all is well now

Radio sticks in TX mode after I let go of the button on the mic


Hello williamhicks,

There is a relay in side of the cb that might be sticking. The problem is that this situation might be environmental. You say that you sent it back to Cobra twice for repairs. I think that the place you are sending it to differs enough environmentally so that the problem does not manifest itself. You can test this by exposing the unit to different temperatures, to determine if the internal relay is sensitive to variations in temperatures.

If you do find that the relay has become tempurature sensitive, you can order the part from Cobra, or strangly enough from Radio Shack, since they do carry the same part just by a different part.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

This problem is wide enough to issue a recall.
