My Satellit A45-S151 Power Jack, that the external power cord plugs into, has one of the 3 Male Jack Prongs missing (broken off). What is this part called and can it be replaced? Does it require a trained technician or is this something a novice could do?
This will likely require some soldering, if you are referring to the jack on the dc converter (black box) you should exercise care when opening these there coiuld be hazardous electricity in it even if unplugged. (if it can be opened, many are permanantly glued shut) you can order replacements on ebay relatively cheap, usually $15-30.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The problem may be simpler than you think, Patrick. The robot's power cord must be plugged into the power supply port in a particular way. The male prongs on the robot's power cord are numbered, 1 through 4. Each of these male prongs must be plugged into the power supply port's corresponding number (e.g., 1 must be plugged into 1, 2 into 2, etc.). Do anything else and you get a motionless robot. I hope this helps.
You need to use the Toshiba "Power Saver" console. Go to Control Panel -> TOSHIBA power saver. Click the Icon and use the console to adjust the brightness for the various power schemes. If you don't see the TOSHIBA power saver icon, go to Go to Control Panel ->Power Options and open that console. Select "TOSHIBA Power Saver" option in the "Power schemes" dialog box. If you don't have that option in the dialog box, you need to go to the Toshiba site and download the Power Saver installation file and reinstall it.
It sounds to me like the power cord has a short. To test your power cord you need a multimeter. Test continuity threw the power cord, from the male plug prongs, to the wiring inside the vacuum. You should get continuity from one prong on the male plug to only one wire on the other end of the power cord. If you test one prong but get a readying on 2 wires, then it is crossed. If you dont get any continuity on one or more of the wires, you have a short. A common place for a short in the cord is the male plug, you can find a replacement male plug at a hardware store and cut off the old one. When wiring the male plug, black wire goes to the gold post, white wire goes to silver, and green wire goes to the green post.
If your carbon brushes on the motor are warn, then that could cause the motor to stop, but other parts of the vacuum should still work so I dont think it is that.
If it is just one letter then you most likely have a bad keyboard.
Try an external keyboard, if the 'c' is still not working with the external then it's probably some weird software issue. But, if the 'c' is ok on the external you will probably have to replace the keyboard. Replacement keyboard are pretty easy to find on ebay or the web and are usually very easy to replace.
