Re: no power off charge
It is evident your Battery is not working - If it is not too far gone which it quite possibly is follow my steps to fix the battery and allow it to hold charge:
1. Remove the battery from your Laptop - In a lot of cases there will be a slider on the bottom side of your laptop that will unlock the battery and allow it to be slid out.
2. Put the battery in a think plastic bag - Alternatively 2 thin plastic bags
3. Place it in the freezer for 30 minutes
4. Remove the Battery and place in in the sun for another 30 minutes
5. Place it back in the freezer for 30 mins
6. Put it out in the sun for 30 minutes then back into your laptop.
7. Leave the battery plugged in to charge
8. Remove the AC Adapter
Please Note: I work full time in the IT field I use this technique to fix batteries that do not hold charge as it puts the energy in stasis and wipes their theoretical memory - It works for laptops with little charge holding capacity but as your's has no charge the probability of it being dead is high under this circumstance I can only recommend attempting to hunt down a replacement battery at your expense;
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

1st : you can check from the power cable charge
2nd : check the adaptor charger if there is a light indicator or not, or you can check with multimeter to check the voltage on charger adaptor, does show the proper voltage for your laptop, you can check at the end of the connection that leads to the laptop.
note : Remember use DC current at Multimeter
3rd : if the adaptor running well, just plug on the adaptor charger to the laptop, dont turn on the laptop power, just see the light indicator with battery / lightning image on laptop, its explained that there is or is not the power current running to the laptop.
3rd.A : if its no power goes to the laptop then your adaptor charger is failed
3rd.B : if is there, there must be a problem with your motherboard, section power / power plugs, why do not want to charge with a new battery.
- if the problem on number 1 & 2, then you can change the power cord and the adaptor charger.
- if there is problem on the 3rd.B then you can go to the toshiba services center for your problem.
Take out the battery and plug it into the mains and see if it powers on. It should do so unless the power switch or PSU has been damaged.
Also check the power adaptor is firmly plugged in and working properly.
Check for physical damages on the power cord or teh power brick try it as well on a different Laptop if it does the same thing if the adaptor works fine in a different laptop try plugging the adaptor without the battery on the system try unplugging and plugging it back in if it will work properly without the battery then most probably either your battery needs to be replaced or your systems Motherboard....
also you can try updating system BIOS which is risky, check your Manufacturers website or call them for any information about BIOS updates for the system.
its a comment fualt with laptops the micro switch that switches between charge and main power goes faulty on them, you could be acutally onto some thing here because ther eis alot of people with laptops that wont charge at all, and if they knew ur little sequence you got going on there maybe you could save their laptops been door stoppers.
Hi, Laptop battery notification is not accurate but approximate. The remaining battery usage is calculated approximately and then notified to the user. If your battery's life is more than a year, then the calculation goes on decreasing. It cannot be rectified unless you go for a new battery. But still you can tweak the battery life by, 1. Switch of the wireless adaptor when not in use. 2. Decrease the screen brightness. 3. Configure your power plan in control panel to minimal power usage mode while on battery. 4. The notification limit for battery low can be custom configured in the control panel. set it to 30 % and this will prevent your laptop to dye without power as your battery power drains faster below 31% I hope this is helpful to understand the logic behind this.
There are several things you'll need to consider: 1. Have you plugged it in a Working A/C outlet? 2. Power cord should be connected on the back of the computer 3. If the above is okay.. the computer's power supply is not functioning. You'll need to replace it.
Hey alberto, First off thanks for choosing Fixya.com. The Ac adapter itself could be bad or it could be the dc jack. And also the problem with your cpu fan could also be that the fan has gone out or the motherboard itself needs to be replaced.
It’s either the plug on the AC adaptor (might have a broken wire) or the laptop’s input jack that the adaptor plugs into. The input power jack is soldered onto the motherboard. Could also be a problem with the charging circuit on the motherboard (would need to replace motherboard to fix). Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided.

There are several possibilities. Let's start with the easiest two. First the battery, take it out and try starting up only with the power supply. Then the memory chips. If a memory chip fails it can cause a no start in IBM's. Take the memory out and try it. Then try it, putting them in one at a time. If these don't work, then I'm afraid your problem lies within. Namingly the power management chip on the motherboard. The pm chip controls the power input, and allows such functions as switching between battery and AC, and battery charging. The pm chip can go without warning, and just because it lights and shows charging doesn't mean this chip hasn't malfunctioned. I've had several IBM's come through my shop that have experienced the same problem you're describing. I've also had them with problems like; it will only power with the battery, won't charge the battery, will charge battery and only run with battery shuts down while charging, only power under AC, etc... all pm chip related issues. Unfortunately, the only solution is motherboard replacement.
