Question about Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5354 15.6" Laptop with AMD Dual-Core E-300

1 Answer

I own a Toshiba Satellite C855D and my HDMI port has a plate cover. How do i get it off?

I have an HDMI port with a black plate covering that will not come off. I've trying pushing in to see if it will pop out and prying it out with toothpicks, pencils, etc. Is there something I'm missing here..? Why won't it budge?

Are you sure you actually have a HDMI port ad not just the area that makes HDMI optional when ordering or for after the fact installation of a new video card?

You will need an HDMI socket, surface mounted and the corresponding components to solder on to the mother board. Very much a major task!

How do i fix rtc battery low press f2 key to set date/time but the keyboard does not respond


Replace the CMOS battery. Now known as the RTC Battery.
(Real Time Clock)
I believe 6C372759Q is the -> Serial Number
Toshiba = Manufacturer name
Satellite = Model Series
C855D = Model Series number
S5203 = Model number
Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5203
The above info just tells you what Toshiba laptop it is. NO personal information.
What you did was good for me, bad for you.
Explanation; In the old days I read that a bad guy, would use the Serial Number to find out the person's name, and home address. Or the name, and address the computer was listed to have been sold to.
Then they would watch the house, and find the homeowners schedule. (Case the house) Then rob the house. They know for one, the laptop is there.
I believe that......makes sense......makes the hair on the back of my neck go up too!
(Also read, that if they can tap into your computer, and see that you have a calendar on the desktop screen, with appointments set; they have your schedule. Know when you will be home, or doctors appointment, kids to xxxxx practice, dentists visit, vacation, etc)
Yes, I will be alerting FixYa staff to remove it.
It was good for me though, so I can find out exactly what Toshiba laptop we're talking about here.
1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
2) Buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap. Connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
Electro Static Discharge. Here is but one example,
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103245
You have to disassemble the laptop, in order to access the RTC (CMOS) battery. The RTC Battery is on the -> Bottom of the motherboard. Access is after removing motherboard out of Base Enclosure (Bottom Cover).
You have to disassemble from the Top down.
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-C875-C875D-C870-C870D/disassemble-laptop-case-1.htm
What makes me think the Satellite C875D is so close to the Satellite C855D, that I can post a disassembly pictorial guide for a C855D? The Base Enclosure (Bottom Cover),
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-Satellite-C855D-Bottom-Case-V000271740-With-memory-cover-not-pictured-/330896862554?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4d0afd6d5a
Here is a photo of the Bottom view of the motherboard. This is the side the Processor, and Ram Memory are installed, also,
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-Satellite-C855D-Motherboard-AMD-Integrated-1-3GHz-V000275390-Tested-/330868111843?pt=Motherboards&hash=item4d0946b9e3
SET, your mouse cursor in the middle of the photo. This enables the Zoom In feature. Now move to the Right. See the round silver looking thing with the Blue dot on it?
RTC Battery. It's a watch type battery. Looks like a CR2032, as used in most desktop computers. HOWEVER, the number will be on the battery. May NOT be a CR2032. May be smaller.
Post back in a Comment if this is what you wish to do. If you want I will try my best to step by step you through it. If not peel off $75 to $125 for a computer repair shop to perform this.
(They get paid for their technical knowhow...Not how physically hard the job is..........)

Toshiba satellite C855D-S5105 HDMI


For the Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5105, HDMI is an option.

If present, believe it to be on the Left side, same as the VGA port.

[General example of VGA connector (Port), and VGA Cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

Note* Color is not always Blue. Scroll down a little for VGA Cable example ]

User Manual states plug external monitor device into laptop, then turn external monitor device on.
External monitor device should automatically be seen by laptop.

If not press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time, tap on the F4 key until the display option you want is shown. Then press the Enter key.

Touchscreen?
That requires a knowledge of Windows 8, which I do not have a full understanding of yet. The User Interface of Windows 8.

It isn't stated by Toshiba, (At least that I could find), as to if the HDMI port; is just that. An HDMI port, or a Mini-Port HDMI port,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:HDMI_Connector.jpg

There are HDMI adapters, and HDMI cables; that adapt from regular HDMI to Mini-Port HDMI.

There are adapters that connect to a VGA port, and convert to an HDMI port.

Does my toshiba satellite c855d have hdmi output


Hi Alex,
The Toshiba C855D-S5320 does. Can you confirm the type of C855D you have. With the description of the plate I doubt your model does. On the one I use, I knowingly gave up touch screen for HDMI with budget I had. I have it connected to a 24" ASUS screen and I'm very happy with HDMI. Good luck! Toshiba C855D S5320 Laptop

Does toshiba satellite m505-s4940 come with hdmi port


Quoted from CNET review:

"A full-size ExpressCard slot and a memory-card slot are all welcome features, but HDMI has been dropped in the S4940--a plugged-up port is all that remains. "

Sorry...

It has a hdmi port but covered.how do i use it?


If it is covered up, surely it is not for use.
I have an L300D and there is no sign of HDMI, just the usual Card Slotand VGA output along with the USB and 1394 type sockets.
If you go online to www.toshiba.com and have a look at the specification of your laptop, there will be the information you require.
Hope that helps.

Instead of replacing the Seine PCB board (which is supposedly what the problem is) on our 42LX177 Toshiba LCD TV we are going to try the SD fix from this website but we need to know where the metal plate...


You can access the SD slot without having the back cover off of the TV. The SD slot is covered with a L-shaped bracket held on the TV with a single Phillips screw. The plate is located in the recessed part of the back panel to the right of the HDMI port. Good Luck
