Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook
There appears to be a problem between the charger and the computer interface. The computer battery dicharges even with power adapter plugged in. Attempted to play with the cord and computer interface and starts to works then falls off line again. Is there a way of changing the compter interface?
Based on your post/description, it would appear that power jack has lost its solder connection to the motherboard or even just cold solder. This is a relatively easy repair. It would involve re-soldering at least two pins/points. What is more challenging is the disassembly and gaining access to the bottom of the board to perform the soldering. Perhaps these pages maybe of illustrative help.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
