Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop ?

Wont turn on and wont charge no more - Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop


Answers :

Hi.

Go to a computer shop and have the power adapter tested on the bench.

The charger is tested using a multimeter to read Volts on the connector. Values must be within half volt from prescribed.

The battery is more difficult to test, as it must be tested on a different laptop, to check it it holds charge.
The laptop should start with charger only and no battery, if it does not, then battery is not the problem. Or at least battery is not the only problem.

If battery and charger are OK, then the problem is usually the DC socket on laptop motherboard, where you connect the AC adapter. The socket is soldered on your Acer motherboard, if soldering joints are broken, then the laptop won't charge anymore.
To fix this fault the laptop must be taken apart, the connector removed, replaced, and re-soldered.

Try also calling Acer at the number listed on the owners manual. They have one of the best customer support in this sector, and they may tell you if there is any available extended service plan to cover your repair. Acer standard warranties are one or two years, extended plans if available can cover up to five extra years warranty.

Regards.
