SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 won't charge battery.

Sadly, it sounds like you need a new system board for this. Something's wrong in the charging circuitry so that the battery never gets charged. But the power jack and other power circuits are OK since the unit comes on with the adapter connected.

It's possible that there are just some bad solder connections at the contacts (not uncommon) or a fuse has opened, but it's nearly impossible to get electronic repairs done on laptops. Most service shops won't attempt to troubleshoot and repair this sort of problem to component level because of the lack of service literature and time involved. They'll just want to switch out main boards. Even under warranty this is all they'd do.

If the thing is really "just" out of warranty you may have some luck if you call the manufacturer's customer service line at (800) 457-7777. If you're outside the US you can look up the appropriate number at their website.

SOURCE: satellite l305-s5907 is plugged in but there is no

This sounds like it may be a DC power jack or the AC adapter. Did this happen suddenly or did it occur over a period of time? Have you had to jiggle the AC plug to get power? Look to see if the pin is broken off of the jack inside the plug hole or if it is loose when you plug it in. Or was the cord yanked on? If it did happen suddenly it could still be the DC power jack. They can go out by an arc of power and melt a nearby chip etc. or the jack plastic itself. If you can get intermittent power by moving the tip then it is almost surely the jack. I don't suggest continuing to do this as it will just make an inevitable repair worse and maybe even ruin your MB. You can also look at the AC adapter (unplugged to be safe). Check where it connects to the tip and goes straight to the plug. There is a flexible part there. The check the flexible parts of the cable near the adapter brick on both ends. If no luck it will need to be opened and have the jack looked at first then if that isn't it the MB. Make sure if you bring it somewhere they don't tell you it is a bad MB when it is a jack. One important note. This model has a DC harnessed jack meaning the DC jack isn't soldered to the MB but rather sits in a bracket and has wires that are soldered to the back that then go to a clip that connects to the MB. Often these wires break loose from the jack and just need to be soldered back on. Toshiba is sneaky with some by making the wires hidden inside a "secret trap door" so you can't see where they are soldered or if they broke loose. You can pop this plastic off the back and check the connections and often re-solder them back on. Use heat shrink over the exposed wire if you have it and put some epoxy over the connections and you should be good. Even better than new often.

With the Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 Laptop, you can put a 500GB hard drive and up to 2 TB hard drive. The only requirements are to make sure it has a SATA connector and is 2.5" Size. These are very common and easily found online. For example, here a 500GB one that is compatible that I found: Click Here.

Toshiba satellite L305-s5955 will not power up

If there is no power light and it can't charge your laptop, it is likely that the charger is dead. You need a new laptop charger. So try a new adapter to confirm the real issue.

There are two kinds of ac adapters for your toshiba l305-s5955

Toshiba Satellite L305 AC Adapter 75Watt 19V 3.95A

Toshiba Satellite L305 AC Adapter 90Watt 19V 4.74A

You should choose the right charger depending on your original adapter's specification. If the original one need 90w, you won't buy 75w that will bring damage to your laptop. If it needs 75w you can use 90w too.

as far as I knew, that laptop didn't have hdmi out. if it does, you should be able to use ANY hdmi although you made need a specific cable with either a full size male hdmi on both ends or an hdmi with a full size male on one end and a mini male on the other. if it doesn't have an hdmi out port though, you will need something like a VGA to hdmi or DVI converter box (depending on what you are connecting the laptop to). a simple cable with VGA on one end and a hdmi on the other wont work either as it wont convert the signal properly. you need an electronic box(could cost more than $50) to convert the signal similar to this for an example...

hope this helps

What do I need and how do I connect my Toshiba L305 model PSLB8 050302f to my hdtv to view online tv?

I dont believe that laptop has an HDMI port on it. If you have an LCD TV then your TV may have a VGA or DVI input on it. You can connect your laptop to the TV by using a VGA to VGA or VGA to DVI cable. If you your TV doesn't have one of these input ports, then you're not going to get your laptop connected to your TV.

Your laptop has a vga port, use an vga male to HDMI female adapter to connect the two with an HDMI cable. There are adapters available at a company called "Cables to Go" below is their web site.
