Question about Acer n30 Pocket PC

Acer N30 battery problem (even new battery does not last enough)

My ACER N30 have developed the problem of quick battery discharge. The power meter keeps shrinking. I replaced the battery with the new one, problem fixed only upto 25% extend. Earlier the battery ( that I used for 18 months) diminised in 5 minutes in 'on' mode, now the powerbar in brand new fully charged acer battery  is empty in say 15 minutes of 'on' condition. ( & appx 4 hours in absolutely 'off' condition).

 

What could be wrong?

Try checking your power saving options, you can drop down the backlight a little lower to extend battery life. Also you can lower down the volume of the system sound and check if the bluetooth is on, then turn it off. Recharge it and then check if the battery life extends. You also need to occasionally soft-reset the n30

Help on extending the battery life of my acer aspire one!


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, until they won't charge up at all.
The only solution is a new battery.

Acer aspire 1640 wont boot up


TRY TAKING YOUR BATTERY OUT FOR 15 MINUTES THEN PUTTING IT BACK IN. IF IT COMES BACK ON, RECALIBRATE YOUR BATTERY BY LETTING THE BATTERY GO DOWN TO 5% THEN PLUG THE POWER CORD IN. YOUR BATTERY MAY NOT BE STRONG ENOUGH TO TURN THE SCREEN ON, EVEN THOUGH YOUR BATTERY METER SHOWS IT HAS A GOOD CHARGE. QUICK CHARGES OR FREQUENTLY UNPLUGGING IT CAUSES THE BATTERY METER TO READ DIFFERENT THAN THE AMOUNT OF CNARGE THE BATTERY IS ACTUALLY HOLDING. RECALIBRATING IT WILL GET THE METER AND THE BATTERY BACK ON THE SAME CYCLE.

Acer n30 Screen Tap Freeze


Sounds as if the touch screen membrane is defective, which is a darned nuisance, but not impossible to fix .... if you are confident of dismantling the n30, you can buy a new touch screen membrane from Ebay for about 4 pounds/6 dollars.
It is a very skilful job to remove the old touch membrane from the actual display screen below it, not really for a novice, and all internal components are very delicate, so i suggest you find a tame technician before you buy the new membrane. The touch membrane connects to the motherboard via a tiny flexible 4 or 5 pin membrane ribbon cable, it's a miracle of miniature engineering inside the n30, so do ve very careful if you decide to do it yourself, best of luck!

My n30 can't charge, but turns on under charging


hi, I had the same problem so i checked some other forums. I then found the answer. While your acer is plugged in, hard reset it, this switch is on the bottom of the machine. Switch the hard reset thing to the left for five secs, then back to the right. The green light should start flashing! You just fixed you acer!
