The classic fix for an Acer with the three blinking lights problem is to remove the battery, unplug the charger, push and hold the power button for 30 seconds, and then put things back and turn it back on. I just had it fix an Acer, yesterday.
It sounds like yours has progressed beyond that and, what I can't tell in your pictures, is whether the pin inside the DC power jack is loose. I used to see lots of laptops where this was exactly the problem. The pin is installed like a rivet into the back of the jack and, if it is loose, the laptop stops getting enough power to operate. I would resolder the pin into the tab it is riveted to; but, they're so cheap these days you might just buy a new one if that pin is loose (use a toothpick or a tiny screwdriver to see if it wiggles in the jack).
My other thought is that the ASUS ac adapter is a class B fit meaning it isn't quite right and has decided it's not happy anymore. Do you still have the original Acer adapter?

1) How do you know that the battery is fully charged? (Only another Acer laptop could tell you that)
2) I asked if you had the original Acer charger/ac adapter?
3) If the pin in the DC power jack is loose, that is your original problem! (I've only seen about 150,000 broken PCs in the last 42 years)
4) Have you tried the 30 seconds, no battery, no ac adapter again?
