you have gotten stuck at other power levels, so trying powering it down\015\012with AC adapater and battery in, remove battery and then put in back\015\012in, see if charge light will come on steady.

Sounds like you've either got a defective battery, or there exists a hardware error on your laptop that is not allowing the battery to charge. Either way, I suggest contacting Acer for warranty service.

I would not be surprised if there isn't a way to perform a reset from the 6 external pins. Agreed Lion charging is not for the begining level of understanding. Any guru out there on this matter?
