I am having some kind of power problem with this machine. When I turn it on, it immediately powers off. I was only able to open the drawer to get my DVD out by using the "open" button on the remote. I had to press it 4 or 5 times to get the drawer open enough to pull the DVD out.
I have unplugged the power cord for a while, plugged it in a different outlet, and tried doing a reset (plugging in power cord while holding play+stop). None of them worked.
Has anyone else experienced a problem like this? How can I tell if it is the power cord or something inside the player? I really like this player and hope it can be fixed, but I don't know where to start.
Thanks in advance if anyone can help!
You have something in the power supply. are you a tech person? if you are. open the device and unplug the power board from the rest of the device. turn it on and see if this happens again. if it does, then you have a problem with power unit in you device. I would say a capacitor is at fault somewhere..as I said before if you are not a tech person, take it to a repair man. good luck

A laser printer that shuts itself down immediately after turning it on indicates either a loose power cable which can be fixed by pushing the power cable in properly or something internal to the printer is causing it to shut down.
If it is shutting down due to something internal, one possability is it has the wrong power going into it. a 110 volt power supply going into a 220 volt printer or the other way round change the supply or find a converter for it. Another possibility is some other component in the machine is failing such as the power regulator board or format board. If it is something internal like this. Replace the printer is really your only option unless it is still under warrantee as replacing parts in most machines nowdays is more expensive than buying a new printer.
try to remove the battery , then press and hold power button for 8 secs. Then insert the power cable instead of battery. Turn it on. If it wont, try to disengage the power cable and insert the battery. If still wont turn on, kindly inform toshiba about this problem and have them fixed immediately. It is either the battery, the cable or the pc unit itself that causes your laptop failure...
Here are some of the steps to you can reboot your pc without using a keyboard:

2) Unplug the power cord from the power supply - Force your pc to shutdown by unplugging the power cord from the power supply of your pc. Put it back again and press power button to turn on.

First look for the obvious-make sure it's plugged in to a power source and make sure you got enough battery power. Nothing?
It immediately shuts down, because it's telling you it needs to be taken in to have the Apple dorks fix it, as this is not something that can easily be fixed on a web site. Opening this thing up with hands on fixing is required for your machine, but keep in mind that your warranty is void if you spilled water on the laptop.
I had the same issue with my desktop HP Pavilion. It turned out to be a faulty power connection in the actual power cable right where it connected to the powersupply in the back of the computer. I had the power supply go out on the same computer - new one is about $30 for a replacement - installation is extra. To determine if it's the power cable you can power up and wiggle the cable right at the back where it plugs in. If it drops off immediately then you'll need a new cable. To determine if the power supply is faulty unplug the unit, take the cover off and measure a spare white connector coming off the power supply. You should have +- 5 volts and +-12. If you don't have within 10% of these voltages then replace the power supply
