Sounds like you fried something by reversing the polarity. Repair will likely be expensive, but check with the manufacturer to find out if they have a flat-rate service charge, if so they will most likely replace it with a refurbished scanner.

When connected to ac adaptor it will turn on and toshiba leading innovation appear, but after that no program will displayed, but when i disconnected to the ac adaptor the programs runs normally. the


This is strange.
I think your ac adapter power cord is bad. Get another one from ebay at: http://www.ebay.com

Just put in your computer's make and model, not the model of the battery in the ebay search.

For example: Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 AC Adapter

It might be your lcd screen's inverter, but it's strange. Anyway test the inverter by plugging in the ac adapter and when the screen goes blank try the steps below.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.

Toshiba A200 1vo. works on battery but freezes when ac adaptor is inserted then has to be turned off manually-no keys function at all except on/off button.Won't start upon ac adaptor either although...


You say you bought a new adapter--was is a Toshiba adapter? Was it a "generic" one?
You have to be careful, because some adapters have different polarity and could damage the computer.

If you are sure the adapter is OK and is putting out the correct voltage (~18 v.) then disconnect the battery and try running the computer without the battery just using the adapter.

I don't think this is a BIOS problem. The operating system should not affect the function of the adapter.Most likely you have a motherboard problem if all else is working.

Wii power problems ...ty in advance


you may have burn the game with wrong voltage and now it wont work until you send it to repair internally. you must have fried the internal circuit board.

or you have a faulty ac adapter, take your wii to your friend house and try with her ac adapter.

Plug in battery, power light and fan noise cycles on and off


I think it probably went into hibernate. Remove the battery while unplugged from the a/c adaptor for a few minutes. Plug it into the a/c adaptor, and see if it will boot up.

No Power : Dell Inspiron 6400


the very first thing that u can try is that try with the different ac adaptor and the battery if u have and if it doesnt the same thing then definately u have to replace the motherboard and if the other ac adaptor and the battery works then replace the ac adaptor and the battery but what i suggest u is that u should replace the ac adaptor and the motherboard both at a time and it will be fine and for that u dont have to worry about ur data in the computer cause replacing the motherboard will bot loose ur data.......

Try starting it with just the adaptor or just the battery.
If the adaptor is broken it might not properly power-up, same goes for the battery. You'll need to exclude these two first.

If it starts with just the adaptor: dead battery.
If it starts with just the battery: defective adaptor (broken connections, insufficient power etc.)

In both cases you should probably call upon your warranty. That is, it that is still applicable.

If both situations don't work, let me know and we'll think further.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.

The base unit goes blank no display


I had this same problem. It turned out to be a bad power adapter for the base unit. If you have another handset that has its own charger than the power adapters are interchangable. try swapping them and see if this fixes your problem.
