    I have tecra a2 and when i plug the adapter i see the green lights. and when i press power button nothing happens. Any ideas?

    Similar situation: Tecra L2 circa 2004. While working, the 'preparing to hibernate' screen popped up and it was instantly off. No power. AC adapter was a little frayed, but never got the battery usage meter on the tray so I assumed I was still on AC. Regardless, replaced AC adapter. No lights (orange charging light etc) come on when plugged in. Won't power up with or without battery in. It's way old and I had it backed up on an external hard drive, so no great loss, but now I want to know WHY.

    Sooooo....last night I discovered how to take an old laptop apart. The jack is still tight and all soldering points and pins appear solid. I have no multimeter to see if the motherboard is getting any power, and the little light on the ac adapter is flashing green, so I know that the adapter has power.

    Thinking it's a system problem, since it went into hibernation mode first....but what do I know...

I have seen this on laptops before you might try re seating the memory. I would also remove the battery from the laptop and see if it will start up on ac power only a bad battery will give you a similar symptom.

This is a common problem for toshiba laptops, unfortunatly. Usually when this happens either your laptop charger is fried, or you will need to replace the actual laptop plug inside the laptop.

    How did you check the power to the motherboard?

  • Anrev Oct 31, 2008

    Ok, thats what I thought. If it is the actual laptop jack, it would likely still show some power, but the pin in the jack is likely broken and without that, it won't get the power it needs. Does the jack feel a lose at all when you plug in the charger, or is it tight?

  • Anrev Oct 31, 2008

    Alright, if you're sure it's neither the charger or the jack then I have no clue what else it could be. Good luck:)

Dead toshiba satellite laptop


If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

How to remove toshiba a200 model the password after power on?


Press the appropriate key to enter BIOS setup.
Enter the current password, to allow you to access BIOS setup.
Then, set a new password.

The password exists to prevent a thief in possession of your laptop from using the stolen computer.

Find your original bill-of-sale, and telephone Toshiba, and they will help the registered owner in resetting the password.
