Then you have either a bad battery or bad connector on the tablet. It is also possible although less likely that the power button does not work.

If you know for sure the cord is good, make sure the battery is. If the battery checks out, most likely is a bad connection port on the tablet itself. normally caused by a cold weld.

SOURCE: Battery: Fast Discharge, Slow Charge, Charging Lights Flicker, Runs off battery when plugged in

Hey, definely sounds like the power jack is your problem, i have seen many companys including ourself soldering on the jack, but there never the same, ie easilly broken off again.
i dont think your power jack is making direct contact, i know you can move it about till u get the charge.
but i would say thats your fault..
Sorry i cant help more

Have a good new year

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite A105-S4064; can't get battery to charge

If you put strain on the jack (e.g. hang power adaptor from it whilst using or charging) then the socket on the mainboard can get hot due to poor contact and melt.

There is no way to fix this except to completely dismantle the laptop and fit a new socket - most likely a repair centre will charge you for a new mainboard.

Try another adaptor to see if that is the problem (broken wire in cord) - otherwise look closely at the socket in the notebook.

SOURCE: my toshiba wont always charge properly, itll say

Try checking the power management settings in control panel.
& if there all set correctly, Then take the battery out & plug in the charger.It should run on it's own.
If it doesn't the chargers gone, but if it does run then put the battery back in whilst it's still on. If still no joy then wiggle & bend the cable from top to bottom & all the joints to check for breaks or bad connections, But leave the laptop switched on so that you can hear it bleep every time you hit a fault.
GOOD LUCK if you get stuck contact me for free advice...

SOURCE: my toshiba satellite m305ds4831 laptop will not

It's a motherboard hardware issue in all likelihood.

There is NOTHING you can do but update the firmware bios. The problem is that most bios firmware update programs require both ac and battery power at the same time :(

You can try to do it anyways by visiting Toshiba's support page for your model and downloading the firmware from there.

It probably won't fix the problem but it's still worth a shot....sometimes it works ;)

SOURCE: laptop wont power up HP-Compaq

It sounds like you need a new battery. They do go bad over time. You can probably find a replacement at a battery store or an office supply store. That way, you can try it out and make sure that is the problem. If replacing the battery doesn't fix your problem, you can always return it to the store (or just keep it as a spare).
If replacing the battery doesn't solve the problem, then there is most likely a problem with the port where the power connector plugs in to the laptop. You'll want to contact the manufacturer about that kind of repair, though some local shops might be able to do it.

My tablet wont charge


If the cable has a micro USB connector (most android tablets do), then the connector is likely the problem. With the cable plugged in, there should be a light to indicate charging. It would usually be orange until charged, when it turns green. If you don't see the light atall, the connection is bad. Try wiggling it to see if that helps. If it does, then you will need to make sure the phone is charging somewhere so that it is not subject to being moved at all, which might cause the connection to become loose. The phone will charge faster if it is off.

Unplugging the tablet would not hurt it in anyway. A power surge can cause such a problem though. Typically the problem you are describing is caused by bad flash memory which is what all tablets use and run on Like a....Example: A Solid State Drive "SSD"

My tablet wont charge unless turned on but battery is so low it wont turn on so cant charge it up.heeeeeelllllpppp


You Power Cord must be bad. If you cannot get on the laptop by using just the power cord, then the power cord is bad and needs to be replaced. Also it sounds like you've been operating off your battery since the power cord is bad, but now the battery is dead because the bad power cord was not charging it.

Get a new AC Adapter and Power Cord. Or it could be that the pin where you plug the power cord into the table is damaged or broken.

Toshiba without battery


1. If the batteries are dead then there's no way that you can charge them again. You're better off purchasing a new one. You can purchase one online by visiting the ToshibaDirect website or by calling them on 1-800-316-09202.

2. Yes, you can use the power cords to run the computer. Just plug them in using the power cords even with the batteries removed and it should work fine.

3. Yes you can but you might experience some current fluctuations. This is negligible on a CMOS battery though.
