    Hi thanx for your reply!

    I have Toshiba Satellite P35-S611

    The ac adapter will not power my laptop nor charge the battery while the laptop is on, when i turned it off the power led is on, if I remove the ac adapter and re-instert it charges the battery, but when trying to turn on the computer it goes back to battery power and will not use the ac adapter nor will it charge the battery,



    I baked up all my data and restored the computer from the restore dvd i have but still..same problem.

    I read in your post that you found out it was a hardware failure and it has to do with soldering or something like that. I can't afford to send this laptop to be serviced and any help is much appreciated.



    thx

    p.s my email above was wrong it should be anrfl@msn.com instead of hotmail sorry!

    You know what I did!

    I took the laptop appart and I got to the power jack I saw nothing wrong with it except the openning where the plug goes in was large so the ground is not touching!



    If I hold the plug up with my finger the power works normal.



    It was a pain to open and put together, I wish the power supply had a drawer like that you can pull out. Anyway I cleaned lots of dust from inside.



    I' m thinking of ordering a power supply via ebay at this address http://shop.ebay.com/items/_W0QQ_nkwZP35...

    what do you think?



    Thanks

Oh.. This problem occurs due to the damaged power jack(The port where you plug in the AC adapter). It is very easy to unsolder and resolder the old one. A replacement jack can be obtained from toshiba. I even found a jack for my friend at a local electronic store but a genuine replacement is always advisable. You will find the power jack under the keypad of your laptop.

Let me know if you need more help.

Regards,
Sai.

    Looks like there is some internal damage in the jack. Hence i think ordering a new jack is the smartest thing to do. DO you know how to remove the power jack from the board? If not just unsolder it and put the new jack in place and re-solder it. Also you might want to practice soldering on something else if you have not done it in a long time. Use 8mm solder.

It powers is good. No disk activity e.g read ,when boot up. no display activity.


boot problems

A200 series laptops are very good normally but don't boot up if there is a device in the USB slot or a CD/DVD in the drive.
If it still refuses to POST, remove the AC Adapter, remove the battery and remove the hard drive.
Power the unit up without the hard drive and it should complete POST and complain that there is no hard drive. If that doesn't work remove AC adapter, ensure battery is disconnected and remove hard drive and RAM. Try again. If it still doesn't work, you have a mother board fault and it needs a service centre. www.Toshiba.com will help you out.
If it does work at one of the options, when you have closed the laptop down, replace the RAM first and test, then the Hard Drive.

When working download updated BIOS from Toshiba.com
Hope this fixes your problem.

Toshiba Satellite L300 shuts down when ac power plugged in


How about this step, try to turn off the laptop itself. Remove the cables and battery just like what you did before, then press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Then, reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop and then turn on the computer itself. If the laptop restarts, shuts down or freezes with the AC power cables, two things that you should seriously consider. It might be the power cable itself, AC cable port or the circuitry going to the motherboard. And since you have cleaned out the fan and heat sink, you have isolated that problem. Have you plug-in another power cable on your laptop? If yes, then check if it works. Otherwise, the main issue is that the AC port is loose or the circuitry of AC adapter going to the motherboard is not not working. You can re-open the unit and check the circuitry from the AC port going to the motherboard. You may check the circuitry from AC port to the power supply if it is ok. If symptom persist, please contact your local dealer...

My Toshiba wont turn on. I tried holding the power


Hi there, Your ac adapter is damaged & that's why power does not transfer in your notebook. The capacitor of adapter is burned & that's why the noise started. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Toshiba laptop reboots when on AC Power


I have the same problem with my Toshiba too, prima facie, it looks like Toshiba and Vista don't make a good combo. I suspected this to be a pure hardware problem, but was disproven when I booted in safe mode. It does not have any problems with the AC Power on in Safe mode.
