Perhaps the AC jack is damaged due to pulling on the cord. Is the battery charging?

    the ac jack looks fine and provide the required voltage. also add that both dc-in and battery indicators are off

    Not the plug that inserts into the AC jack, the AC jack that is attached to the mobo. Open the laptop and test the Power in, with the AC cord plugged in follow the circuit, using a multimeter, to the mobo. Somewhere will be a open.

    When you boot on battery, what is the power info in the Tray Notification Area? Battery % dropping?

  • Mohamed Elmasry Dec 31, 2012

    Yes the battery % is dropping

    I would suspect the AC jack Mobo connection has been damaged, but I can be sure, may be a power component.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite A105-S4048 problem with AC

There's not much you can do. The problem is definately with your motherboard. I'd recommend a bios update, but normally you can ONLY run a bios update if the battery and the ac are both plugged in.

This problem is pretty common among Toshiba's A105 and P105 models.

Besides replacing the motherboard there's not much you can do.

Sorry.

SOURCE: toshiba satellite m55-s135 won't power on even when plugged in

When the AC adapter is plugged to the wall, if it has an LED make sure it is on, remove the battery and connect the adapter to the laptop, does it power up?
Install the battery after charging, see if your laptop powers up.
If the laptop does not power up, the motherboard needs replacing.
I hope this helps to resolve your issue.
Good Luck.

SOURCE: I bought a replacement battery for my toshiba

Hi,
The voltage is right but amperage is wrong so yes send the battery back and have them send you a battery with the right amperage.
You should be able to use the laptop on AC power for the time being until you receive the replacement battery.
Make sure you tell them the correct voltage and amperage so the don't make the same mistake again.


Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Maybe your motherboard is fried. If you know for a fact that the power cord is good and that the DC Jack on the motherboard is good but nothing is happening then the board is just gone.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

Hi, what your toshiba laptop model and asus laptop model? You can use the asus ac adapter on your toshiba laptop only if the folllowing three conditions are met:
1) Output Voltage is within +/- 5% of your old charger's output.

For example, if your old charger provides 19V, then you can use a charger that provides 20.5V or 18.5V.

2) Output Current is the same or higher than that of your old charger.

For example, if your original adapter provides 3.42 Amps, then you can use a charger that provides 3.42 Amps, 3.9 Amps or higher.

3) Connector tip must fit securely into your laptop.

For the specifications of the two adapters, you may check it here:

When i plug my charger in to my satalite L655 and turn it on. An orange light flashes.


Hello, stoneyless
The orange flashing you are referring to means that your battery is currently out of power. I would recommend trying a friends laptop charger (same brand and model) to rule out the charger, if you know the borrowed charger is in working condition and your pc still doesn't power on then you may blame the battery. From that point i would send it in Toshiba for a replacement battery AND charger (if still under warrenty). if warrenty is no longer viable you would have no choice but to find a suitable replacement for either the charger or battery. OR you can buy the same Laptop and take out the battery and laptop cable and return the laptop with the faulty equipment.

My charger does not power up my Toshiba Satellite A305, is it the motherboard?


Have you tried running it without the battery?
  • If this works, then the battery has died. Replace it or run on p/s alone.
  • If not, and the power supply is definitely working, then the laptop itself needs repair.
