There could be several things wrong. You could have a broken DC jack on your motherboard. To prove this, wiggle the DC jack with the adapter plugged in. If the charging light comes on when you wiggle the jack, then your jack is broken. You could also have a defective AC adapter.

For this sort of issue, you may try the following troubleshooting steps:
1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure your Toshiba Satellite C655 charger is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

If you power it down, plug the adapter in and wait for the charge light to illuminate then power up the laptop. You may find it only charges when not in use.

When i plug my charger in i have to move it around for it to start charging and if i move my phone it quits charging its not the chargers i have tired im thinking it my phone. what do i do?


The charging socket on you phone needs to be resoldered, OR the plug on the charging adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
To determine which is faulty, use a different charger and plug it into your phone and move the charging plug to see if the it quits charging. If it quits charging then the charging socket on the phone needs fixing (re-soldering).

You do not need to unplug the large 9 pin beau plug in the rear or the smaller 3 pin molex plug when you charge the chair. Do not unplug them or you will not charge the chair.
Use your charging cord as you describe "plug it into the front, plug it into the wall and charge, then unplug the charger cord and GO". Hope this helps.

My handheld camera model does not seem to charge. I leave it on charge all day and it only has one bar of power when not plugged in?


ok,just figured it out,the plug that goes into the socket vertically is pretty much useless. As soon as you plug it into the handheld device to charge, it shuts off. I took the plug that goes into the socket horizontally and plugged it into the handheld and it began charging. So to use the product, you need to charge the handheld fully and then use the same plug to plug in the actual video camera that is pointed at baby,then you will be set to go. The company should send 2 horizontal plugs.

Garmin will not take a charge


Are you using the car charger adapter plug? If so the plug may have a blown fuse... I would unscrwew the silver end of plug and check fuse ...its spring loaded so be careful...

If the fuse is good try plugging the unit into your computer with the usb connector to see if it charges .... its a slow charge so may take a few hours to fully charge

It fuse is good and unit takes a usb charge the car plug needs replacing

I neglected to plug in the cord to my cigarette lighter and the charge ran down to 0.I am on a trip and did not bring the charging cord. i tried plugging into lighter in car but it stays on for a feww...


leave it switched off and plugged in.

This would give it chance to actually charge as using it from dead with it plugged in does not always allow some GPS to charge properly.

You neglected to say which brand so its hard to give a 100% answer.

Most GPS should have enough charge withing 4 hours but from dead some older units require anywhere up to 18 hours according to some of the manuals i have laying around

How do I charge?


Mine charged itself when if was plugged into the computer. I don't know if that is how you formally charge it, but it worked for me and I see no other way to charge it. Good luck. =)
