Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook
Been there, done that....
1) If your battery has a bad cell (18 months normal life) it could cause this. Take the battery out and see if the system works using just the AC power and no battery.
If it works without the battery get a new one and you are good to go.
2) HOWEVER some systems require the battery to be in place to complete the circuit, so you might have to borrow a "good" working battery from someone if my first suggestion does not work.
3) Finally, sometimes the solder connection for the power connection to the motherboard can be broken by mild abuse or stress from the power cord being pulled at an angle. These typically have three solder points and the one on the back is the most likely to fail.
Summary: If #1 and #2 don't work, get a second opinion, specifically in relation to the power connection to the mother board.
