No power at all, wouldn't even switch on. Sent it to Acer, took 3 weeks to send it back with quote to replace charger board. I didn't want to wait that long again so I bought the charger board and replaced it. Now I get green power light & hard drive light, fan works for a few seconds then stops, screen shows nothing (maybe backlight - its sort of white), cd drive won't open. Although i can't use the laptop the battery is losing its charge after a day or so. I've taken out the memory and put it back again. I hope you can help. Thanks, Jo
Your battery is dying so just send for a new one or take the el cheapo way out and stuff it in your freezer for an hour of so in a plastic bag then put it in the sun for about another hour. worked for my presario 2100

I'm going thru same prob. with 24V battery for WG167. Had same thing with older 18V that came precharged & then wouldn't recharge. 3 batteries later, they sent me to a "technical" rep who said "NO NO, it's not the batteries, it's the charger" He sent me a reconditioned charger & it worked fine. I'm not having any luck so far with the "MAX 24V". On my 2nd battery. It didn't come precharged & will only charge to 18V which is what the charger is outputting! Trying to get a "tech rep" to diagnose but no luck so far. Their tools are handy & work well if you can just get the battery/charger resolved!!!
I had a similar problem with a laptop years ago...Where the battery terminals connect to the motherboard, and Im not sure about yours because the models are obviously way different, but in some, they use "battery boards" that connect to the motherboard and are seperate from the system. Those "battery boards" have lots of micro capacitors and resistors on them and are responsible for charging the battery and completing the power circuit to "start" the computer. If I took the battery board out of the laptop I had, the whole thing wouldn't work. Since your laptop is starting while plugged in, but the battery is not charging...I would look into this area first. I am going to rummage around to see if I can find a schematic of your laptop and maybe some parts info.
look at the bottom of the laptop where you install the battery, there's should be what looks like metal contacts where the battery connects to the actual computer. make sure that when you installed the battery you didn't accidentally bend 2 of them so they were touching eachother. you may have created a direct short which is what caused your heat and the smell. try to plug the battery back in and be careful that you don't bend the metal contacts.
Even if you are missing a lug nut it won't make a noise if the rest are tight. I suspect that the problem will be on the wheel bearing. The wheel bearing can be worn out that's why you hear a noise. I suggest that you go for the wheel bearing replacement to resolve the issue.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
The main power supply regulator board fault. It will be best to replace the power board as card basis rather than trying to repair it. Because, in most cases repair work on this board will be a failure, especially to Plasma displays. If you wish to get more details visit the site linked here. It will help you to an extent, I beleve. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Faults of many popular brand sets are given.
some of the nokia 6300 mobile as the same problem after changing there battery your battery does not fit to your model mobile phones change the battery or make your battery to fit to your mobile then it will be back as good it was.If you have same problem means take out your memory format your memory card.
1.Try to understand,without waranty not able to service your laptop without charge.
2.I thing you are not statisfing with acer service
3.In this scenario you go to consumer court with strong proof.(that means how many days of your laptop stay in service center only like that)
Power & Hold switch
Slide and hold in the opposite direction
of the arrow for power on/off.
Slide in the direction of the arrow to
lock the button functions.
If that fails,
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
