Question about Panasonic Toughbook CF-51 Notebook

2 Answers

Battery discharges too quickly

I bought a used one-year old Panasonic cf-51 toughbook. When I try to run it unplugged, the battery will say how much power and how long it will run when I put the curser on the icon, but then the laptop shuts down after about 5 minutes. When I plug it back in, there's a message box saying the battery is critically low.
Please help, as this means I will not be able to use my laptop for business when no outlet is available.
Thank you.

Toughbook cf-52 will not power up. when I plug in the power cord the battery light comes on but still will not power up. the batery is fairy new. any suggestion?


On any Panasonic Toughbook I would try first to unplug the unit and then take out the battery pack. Then do NOT put the battery back in but re-plug the unit. Then try turning the power back on without the battery pack. Under normal circumstances the Toughbook will now turn back on. If this does not work, try holding the power button continuously on for 12-15 seconds. If the unit is in a deep sleep this will "reset" the Toughbook and usually works.

Good Luck

Panasonic Toughbook CF-51 shutting down


Sue, it's not the inverter board. People who don't really know much about laptops will often diagnose them incorrectly, especially computer repair shops. The problem you're experiencing is most likely related to your motherboard. Unfortunately the most expensive part to replace on most laptops.

Your best bet is to probably just have any important files from the laptop extracted by a repair shop and then selling the computer "As-IS" on ebay. Or you could try another local repair shop to take a look at it. I wouldn't pay any money for a diagnostics since it would take most techs about 5-10 minutes to confirm what I just typed.

Panasonic cf-51 battery not working


It sounds like the battery has gone bad. This happens with Lithium Ion Batteries. It is common for them to no longer hold charge and they must be replaced.
