As long as the charge is not complete the battery LED remains amber.
Give the laptop the time to charge: it should take 3 to 4 hours it it is not being used, and 3 times longer if it is used.
You do not need to register immediately with Toshiba.
Ok, lets start slowly, do you have both a new battery and a new battery charger? If both attempt to use your old battery with the new charger. Also could be a bad charger or a shorted out battery... Good Luck
Is the battery a exact spec.? Some aftermarket batterys, inexpensive replacements, do not play-well with your laptop. If you purchased from a computer store, return for a replacement. That said, It may be that it's not fully charged or need to be drained and charged, cycle it a few times. Some batteries have to go through a "learning" process. It says fully charged in windows software, right? again, some replacement batteries don't play-well with windows.Its a "pins" thing in the battery connector.
Let the battery completely discharge all they way and let it sit for a day or so. Some times when a battery is new most user do not let it fully charge and then completely drain this causes problems for long use batteries. Then give it a try. It also sounds like your plug your cord that connects to the battery may be faulty. Did you by a different cord with the battery? Or use the one from your old one? If you did. This is a "No No" always buy the cord that come for those battery since they are rated for the particular battery.
If the power light is blinking amber, it means the computer is receiving electrical power, but a device might be malfunctioning or incorrectly installed. You may have to remove and then reinstall the memory modules.
Hi there. The battery could be faulty, power off the laptop, take out the AC power and the battery wait 2 minutes and put the battery back in, turn the laptop an and look at the indicator LED to see if its changed, if it has plug in AC power and see if its the same.
