My Acer Aspire E 14 laptop E5-473G-34F0 battery is not charging even if it's plugged on my AC Adapter. It just blinks orange light, although the blue light is on. Once I unplug the adapter, it shuts down. Does it have anything to do with the laptop unused for about 5 months? I really need help ASAP. Thank you.
NOTE: Yes, I know some batteries are not so easy to get to, on some devices. However, it should be removable/replaceable. Unless it is under warranty, then you should contact the manufacturer first.

Try the following and see if it will turn on...

1. Unplug your charger cord.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Press and hold the "Power" button for 30 seconds.
4. Now plug back in the power/charger cord.
5. Now put the battery back in.

If this doesn't help, then test the power cord to see if it is good. Either try your cord in another device, or try another devices cord in your laptop. You may also want to try charging it when the device is off, rather than on. If it works then, the cord is probably the issue.

Should that not be the problem, then check the battery to see if it needs replacing.
