Question about Toshiba Satellite P105-S6104 Notebook

1 Answer

Toshiba P105-S6004 Laptop will not charge battery

Replaced battery with new genuine toshiba battery. Charging indicator glows steady amber as if it were charging and power management shows battery is charging but it is not charging. I've tried 4 different batteries and get the same results. The charger is putting out the proper voltage. I believe I have a motherboard issue. Can the mb be repaired or does it have to be replaced?

Motherboard repairs are often poorly done and they are expensive except for the simplest jobs like replacing the DC jack. And new motherboards are also generally very expensive. And cheap way out of this is buying a used battery charger or a used working motherboard. eBay is usually the best place to start. Good luck!

I just got a brand new Satellite Toshiba touch screen laptop yesterday for chritmas and its plugged in and charged over night but wont turn on unless its plugged in. Is this temporary? or is something


As long as the charge is not complete the battery LED remains amber.
Give the laptop the time to charge: it should take 3 to 4 hours it it is not being used, and 3 times longer if it is used.
You do not need to register immediately with Toshiba.

Hi Ed;

This is issue has resolution as it has been published on Toshiba's Official Support Website. It seems you need to go to an Authorized Toshiba Center. They have a special tool to re-flash your BIOS and it will resolve the issue. I am adding the original text and link for the solution below

Good Luck

New BIOS fixes incorrect power-on password prompt Document ID: 98082329 Posted Date: 08/21/07 Last Updated: 08/21/07 Category: ACPI, BIOS, Password Distribution: Public Applicable Models: Satellite P100-ST7111, P100-ST7211, P100-ST9212, P100-ST9612, P100-ST9412, P100-ST1071, P100-ST9732, P100-ST1072, P100-ST9762, P100-ST9772, P100-ST9752, P100-ST9742, P100-ST9712, P100-ST9012, P105-S921, P105-S9312, P105-S6074, P105-S6034, P105-S6124, P105-S6114, P105-S6104, P105-S6102, P105-S9722, P105-S6062, P105-S6022, P105-S6084, P105-S6064, P105-S9339, P105-S9337, P105-S6227, P105-S6217, P105-S6158, P105-S6148, P105-S6207, P105-S6197, P105-S6187, P105-S6177, P105-S6167, P105-S6157, P105-S6147, P105-S6134, P105-S6024, P105-S6054, P105-S6014, P105-S6004, P105-S6012, P105-S6002, P105-S931 << hide Use of any software made available for download from this system constitutes your acceptance of the Export Control Terms and the terms in the Toshiba end-user license agreement both of which you can view before downloading any such software.
Issue

The computer models listed above may display a "Password =" prompt when the computer is turned on, even though no power-on password has been set. If this happens, there is no password that will satisfy the password request. If the computer is turned off and back on again, it is very likely that the same password prompt will appear. The computer will be unusable until this problem is fixed.
If the problem has not happened yet, you can prevent it from happening in the future by upgrading the BIOS to the newest version.
The occurrence of this problem on any particular computer is unpredictable -- it may never happen, but it could happen any time that the computer is turned on. If this problem does occur, it will be necessary to send the computer to a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider, who will fix the problem at no charge to you.
Resolution

If this problem has not yet occurred on your computer, then click the following link to download and install BIOS version 4.00. This BIOS displays a power-on password prompt only when a power-on password has actually been set via the BIOS Setup program.
You may also browse for a newer version of the computer's BIOS at pcsupport.toshiba.com.
For more help, see Support Bulletin 98081213 Obtaining downloads and support docs from the Toshiba Support website.
If the problem has already occurred on your computer, then please make arrangements with a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider to have this problem fixed at no charge. To locate a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider (ASP), please visit Toshiba's Global ASP Locator at http://pcrepair.toshiba.com.
