Problem with charging my battery on my Toshiba Satellite

I plug it in but it does not start charging. If I wiggle the cord at the plug in area in the back of my laptop, sometimes it tries to start charging but the light immediatly goes out. I bought a new cord and charger but the same thing happens. Do I have to get a whole new motherboard and if so, I have one in an old Toshiba - Model M45-5169. Would they interchange?

Your Power jack has either cracked the motherboard or the solder connection. This is what you are looking to replace....

Problem with charging my battery on my Toshiba Sat - b2711c3.gif And it located like this on the motherboard....

If you are good at soldering and de-soldering.... a repair can be made in-house.
The actual jack is about $15USD.
To have it repaired by a technician is approximately $150USD. Most of the $$ is for labor in disassembling the entire laptop to get at it.
Motherboards do not interchange, unless they are of the same model#.
Hope this helps.

PS - I have personally used the LAPTOP GUY for this exact repair because I didnt want the bother of taking the entire thing apart, and have extra pieces at the end. They charge an upfront diagnostic fee and that is taken off the repair - if you have them do it. Free postage in a box they supply too!

The labtop doesnt boot when the charger is placed in and it also goes of when the charger is put in


Is the AC cord the original? Has it been damaged? Have you tried another AC cord, with the EXACT same power specs? It may be a damaged AC jack. Sometimes a pull or tug on the cord while plugged in will loosen the connection. If you wiggle the cord at the jack plug does it cause the charge LED to blink? Does the computer work on battery?

Toshiba Satellite won't start up when AC plugged in


Try another Cord/Charger to verify the Cord, AC jack. If you plug in the AC cord after starting on battery, does the battery charge? Open Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, Advanced power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust Advanced power setting to your preference.

Toshiba satellite A200-27Z power cord led flasing failure to post will try any suggestions


Have you tried another Cord with the EXACT same power specs? Remove the battery. Has the cord/charger/transformer been damaged? Has the AC jack been damaged? Due to pulling on the cord while plugged in? At the AC jack "wiggle" the plug a bit to see if the plug and AC jack are making a good connection or Loose. Sounds like a loose AC connection.

Satellite P35-S611 has trouble charging


If you have to wiggle the power cord it is most likely the DC jack on the motherboard. It is usually the center pin in the the jack that breaks the solder point and the small tension band inside the jack housing weakens.

I can't actually solve this, but I have to wiggle my cord around to get it to "connect". I'm pretty sure my jack is loose, but haven't opened it up yet to check.

Will not power up for more than 1 second. Without battery installed, will not power up at all


Sounds like battery is dead. Have you been having problems with power cord? When you plug in power cord with battery installed you should see a charging light. Maybe wiggle coord and see if you get some power. Toshiba, In my opinion is a great computer, but they do have a poorly designed power plug. They are forever being broken from the boards. I hope this helps and if it is a bad power socket, you can get them from Ebay for about $5. Good luck and have good day.
