My Acer Laptop (Model : TravelMate P249-G2-M) does not turn on when I click power on button. The blue light will start blinking in power Indicator side and continues to blink for a very long time. At every blink display the display will turn on for miliseconds and goes blank. Sometimes screen will turn on after some minutes and sometimes won’t. I have attached URL of a video showing the same problem at the end of this post. The product is out of warranty. Therefore many authorised repairers of Acer in my area turndown my request to repair.
Then I went to a local guy. He did some servicing, charged me 700 Rs. and laptop became normal for 20-25 days. Then again I encountered the same problem.
Again I went to the local guy. He said there is something wrong with keyboard panel and entire keyboard has to be replaced by a new one which costs around 2,500 Rs. And as temparory solution, he asked me to blow some hot air on laptop keyboard from a long distance.
What I observed is when the laptop was in cold (My Laptop becomes cold if I turn it off for 1 day Room Temparature here is 25-30 Celsius) it wont turn on. Since then I didn’t shut down my laptop. I just put it in Sleep Mode.
Please help me with this matter. I don’t think replacing keyboard would solve the problem.
Thanks and Regards,
