Acer D250 dead - power ok at m/b

Acer d250 - was working perfectly, now won't turn on, and no charge light illuminated when plugged in.

Power supply is fine, and there is power at the multiplug on the motherboard.

What might be the problem? All help appreciated.

Will it work with the battery disconnected.

It sounds like that their is a disconnect between the power socket and the motherboard. If you wiggle it gently with the power supply plugged in do you get any indication of a charging light?

If it is the power jack then there is a tear down video Here and parts available Here

Having replaced one of these sockets, I would rate the task as 'not easy'!

Socket is very easy to replace on these as it isn't soldered on the board. The socket is wired via a multiplug to the m/b.

As mentioned in my original post, there is power to the multiplug on the motherboard - so it's not a connection issue.

Have you tried removing the battery and the power cord and holding down the start key for 30 seconds then reinstalling them again to see if that would work.

Ah, OK. I was going by the picture of the socket in chub's post. In that case, if power from the adaptor is reaching the multiplug on the end of the mini harness from the DC socket, it looks like the mobo has had it.

Looking at a service manual, it looks as though your model has a separate power mode, rather than being built in. However, I can't find replacements for sale other than this one in the US

Thanks for looking.

Would that stop the battery charge light illuminating?

Can't be sure, but it's the link between the socket and the feeds to the mobo, so I'd guess so. As an aside, I've bought stuff from ebay from the US - it takes a few days, but it's always arrived OK. Might be worth a punt for the price.
