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.

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.

Testimonial: "Great information. Helped me decide on a course of repair and saved me a lot of time. Thanks for the help."
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.
