Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Power problem it was working fine until one day the power supply fell and quit working. I bought a new one off ebay with the matching mode number. When I plug it up the power light is green and the battery light is amber. I thought the battery could be bad so I got a new one and no difference. I take the battery out and it won't power up at all and with the battery in it ,comes on for a few minutes and the pops off.

How old is the system? It is possible that the drop with the power turned on caused a surge that damaged the internal power system.
Make sure that you have let the new battery charge for at least 8 hours and then see if the system will run off just battery power. The green light on the power supply means it is getting power and the amber light on the battery means that it is being charged. it shoudl go to green when fully charged.
After a full charge and the system will not run just on battery, then you have a faulty power system on the motherboard. That requires bench time and may not be worth the costs to repai, but that that will depend on the skill of the tech who checks it.

Picture went black but you could still hear the movie


Hi- My PL4260N stopped working after about three years, the audio worked but no video at all. The TV worked fine until one day...no more picture.
I found out that the YSUS and ZSUS boards in the TC fail alot...BUT you can get new or repaired ones off of EBAY...
First check for failed components (burned, loose, bulging, etc.) if nothing obvious is failed then check the fuses on the YSUS, ZSUS, and power supply boards...usually if a board has a blown fuse the board needs to be replaced...get the part number and search it in Google and eBay and you will find options for replace/repair.
Mine had a blown fuse on the YSUS board...I got it fixed for $75 through coppell TV (they are on Ebay)....
Now my TV works fine again!
Good luck.

Have you matched the plug for your mobo and ensured the CPU power supply is plugged in. Replug in the ram and vid card as they can work loose when pressing in the power supply plug.

I cant get it to open up/work


The drop probably jarred quite a few things in the comp The spring may have fell of the door latch, capacitors, memory chips, bios chips may have gotten loose as well. Possibly power supply has broke if it is not getting any power to unit. You could always just buy a new motherboard since you have all the other parts you need for it.. Cheaper than buying another whole unit.

This is an Irish Machine and all i get is a slow green blinking light, no noise, no movement so I wondered if it was because of the power supply


The mains voltage is different. If the desktop has a switch mode power supply that has a mains voltage selector switch, then switch it to 110 volts and it will work, but if it doesn't then you need to purchase a switch mode power supply and install it in your computer, make sure it matches the total wattage or higher than the old power supply.
The monitor usually don't have a switchable voltage, you most likely need to buy a new monitor or use an existing one.

Unable to boot os after power supply change


I would make sure you connected the Power to the main switch correctly it is usually a 3 wire connect, check all connections on the HDD, motherboard, and CD's. also check the WATs rating on your old power supply against the WATs on the new power supply, if the new one is less that is probably your issue.

PLZkeep me posted.

My HP Photosmart C4480 will not turn


If you are confident with electronics, remove the rear casing near the power socket, and check the power supply board for a fuse. Using an exact match, replace the fuse and replace the cover. Try powering up. If it fails, you have a blown power supply :(

Hard drive will not power ON


I have had my own experience with Western Digital and their policy is to not sell or provide parts in order to replace damaged parts in an otherwise functional device.

Your options would be to send it in to WD for a repair and strictly a repair. They may replace the power supply.

The other option is to buy a used/off-market case or power supply which matches your drive's supply.

I had a harddrive burn a hole through one of the interface chips on the bottom of the HD and was told there was no way I could get it repaired or recover the data as it was. However, I found an exact match for model and type of the drive and a near enough year to the one I had and exchanged the interface boards on the drive, and I'm using the drive today as my main boot disk.

All you need to do is replace the power supply. Try Ebay for your external drive model number, there may be cases with no drives which you could buy that have functioning power supplies, or power supplies alone.

If all else fails, you can do what I did - buy another, matching product, exchange the broken part from the new one you get with the old one, recover data, and swap the power supply back again, then send the old drive to WD for replacement. You can attempt to resell the RMA'd (returned to WD drive) on amazon/ebay and use the new one, or keep the new power supply in the old device and use it, and sell the drive out of the case, or keep the drive and use it. I expect the drive inside the external case should work as a normal drive.

Cant realign the color on my tv


It is probably the convergence Power supply usually mounted above the main boards below. Most of them use a STK730-010 amp that is usually the problem, if not some used a little FET instead. It seems that PCB is available probably listed as a power supply rather than a convergence bd though
