Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3690-2196 Notebook ?

Acer 3690 My daughters Acer has been having problems charging with the power jack. I have to wiggle the cord to get the charging light to turn green. Finally now it wont charge it at all and I cant even power on the laptop. Any ideas? Maybe just a bad power cord?


Answers :

It's probably just the power cord. I had the same problem, I bought a replacement power cord from ebay and everything works fine now.
Once you get the pin repaired be sure and use some sort of cable stay or restraint so it doesn't happen again. . .
