Question about Toshiba Satellite A75-S226 Notebook

Open Question

Hi, I have Toshiba Satellite P35-S611. I am having some power problems. It has 3 lights 1 which shows plug, 2 power, 3 bettery. The plug and power light always stays green. The bettery light when it is charging is orange ones the bettery is charged it turns to green and it stays like this for a while (10-max15min) and it shuts off so my laptop starts working on bettery power. Then when it dies it shuts off computer. I have to pull out bettery, put it back and then charging light comes on and I can turn on my laptop again. So, then it does the same procedure all the time. If you have a solution for this I would really appresiate your help. Thanks, Andrey

    It is the motherboard. When the right light is orange the battery is charging, grean means it is plugged in but not charging. When the light turns off that means there is no connection. You can fix the problem by jiggling the powercord till the light comes on and then holding it there for a while, but eventually there is no connection at all. I got it fixed two years ago and they did it for free because of a class action law suit, but I do not know if these are still on warrantee. When I did bring it in the motherboard was on backorder for two months because there were so many that had the same problem.

How do I start over with my computer toshiba p35 s611 do I have a restore on this model or do I need to format HD and reload XP? I dont have any restore disks.


if you go to "computer" and there is a partition or hard drive showing as "recovery" then you should be able to take your lappy back to its original state.
if not then you will need to format, depending on how old your system is anyway, a format might do some good.

Satellite P35-S611 has trouble charging


If you have to wiggle the power cord it is most likely the DC jack on the motherboard. It is usually the center pin in the the jack that breaks the solder point and the small tension band inside the jack housing weakens.

Slow Hard drive


That model is only IDE capable and has no SATA ports on the motherboard. You should get a faster IDE harddrive OR an external USB harddrive .

I have just fixed the same problem on my Toshiba p35 s611.
The power jack inside the laptop had been damaged. To reach the problem you must take apart the entire laptop (there are a few guides for doing this online). Next I simply found the positive connection coming from the jack (it is the wire coming out of the back of the jack) and followed it to where it enters the motherboard. I simply flipped it around and re-soldered that one spot. Other sites recommended I remove the jack but I couldn't melt the solder enough to do so, however just trying and adding some fresh solder was enough to fix the problem. I no longer need to jiggle the power connector to the right angle just to get power.
