Toshiba not getting power

My toshiba laptop is not getting any power. It was running fine the night before and then shutdown due to low battery. I tried the a/c adapter and it does not work. The LED light on the laptop that indicates the a/c adapter is plugged in does not come on. When I try to turn the laptop on the on/off button lights up for a second and then shuts off.

    I know its not the battery because the on/off light comes on for a second and then shuts off. The thing is that when i plug the a/c adapter the light on the laptop that shows the adapter is connected is not lighting up.

You may have completely drained your battery which it will need a full recharge before it will work again.

    O do you have another adapter to see if the problem is the labtop or the old adapter?

    No that probably won't work at all and you'd end up frying your mobo.

Toshiba satellite A135S4437..wont work

If you are recieving power from just the Power cord without the battery. This could be a bad battery. If you are recieiving power but no video it would also be bad RAM. Try taking out the ram one piece at a time and testing one at a time. That should give you a better idea.

Toshiba Laptop not Taking Charge

ya the solder connection connecting the ac power input onto the transformer is probably weak. aside from taking the case apart and resoldering the connection, not much else you can do.

Laptop won't turn on and charging light is not orange when plugge

I had the exact same problem. Here is the fix: remove the keyboard, battery and CMOS battery then press and hold the power button for a min. Plug just the power in then try to turn it back on. If it doesnt remove more perhiprels such as DVD, memory, hard drive then do the power button hold cycle again. After it turns on, remove the power then add the perhiprels you need to boot to BIOS, i.e; keyboard & memory. Go to BIOS then plug in the battery while the laptop is running. Unplug the power to see make sure laptop runs on the battery. Turn off then add the rest of perhiprels then plug it in power again before closing all up. If the orange light problem comes back repeat above! OR you can take it to your HP dealer to have it fixed under warranty if you are lucky. Then never buy HP ****!

Hope it helps...

Charging Problems with FUJITSU SIEMENS AMILO PRO V2055

SOunds to me like the charge board inside the laptop has gone bad. If it will not run off of the mains supply without the battery and will not charge the battery, this is your problem. AS far as where you can get the parts or have it repaired. I am unsure of because I would need the full model and make of the laptop which didn't fit in the listing title bar above If you could send me more info, I would be glad to try to help.

Mx35 no power

Hi, can you use a multimeter? If so then check on the power suply what the voltage output should be for that unit. Then with the power turned on GREAT CAUTION MUST BE TAKEN AT THIS STAGE AS TESTING THE WRONG END COULD CAUSE ELECTROCUTION use the meter to test the laptop end plug only and see what power output you have. If you can not do this then take the power supply to a technician and have it tested. If ok = dead battery, if not replace power unit. Regards mistyman
