Why is my Acer Chromebook refusing to charge?
I'm putting this CB3-431 chromebook together from spare parts and it all works except it won't charge.
I've tried 2 different batteries, both could be duff for all I know but the battery_test shows them to be ~97% and 100.5% good (not sure how the latter is possible!) but discharging.
It works fine on AC, and did on battery until it went flat as I can't get it to charge... The charge light comes on but it remains stuck on 1%.
I've tried all the suggested things I can find for this:
Disconnecting the battery and plugging in AC for 5 mins. (the charge light flashes but never goes red, but this may refer to a different model)
Esc-Refresh-Power to get to recovery and charging from there for 12h.
There looked to be a slight corrosion on some bits on the board (now cleaned), so maybe if it has been water damaged, I don't stand a chance?
Some places have suggested a bad power supply but I'm thinking as it is a 2 pin connector, if it powers on then that must be OK?
Any thoughts and/or advice appreciated!
