I had a bad power cord that I had to play with in order for it to charge. Finally I guess it finally shorted out. So I brought a new cord and when I pluged it up all I got was the battery light blinking blue real fast. Not sure if I have wrong power cord or if something burned out.

Re: Toshiba wont charge
Sound like you may have the wrong power cord for your unit. The original power adaptor for the A105 is 75W (15V x5A) Auto sensing 100-240V/50-60MHz frequency input. If you got a replacement adaptor, I would reccomend a 75W or higher adaptor. (A new opposed to a used one.) Good Luck.

I tried everything, bought 3 new batteries, 4 new chargers and
everytime about a day goes by and the phone dies in less then 3 hrs and
stays dead...tried connecting to usb, tried removing the batter and
still dead...finally followed the steps on the website: https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/app/answers/prod_detail/a_id/83322/p/30,6720,8064 first
I held down the power and lower volume buttons for 10 sec. and no luck,
removed the sd card followed by downloading the manager and motocast
from the website above and finally...looks like the charge light finally
turned back on...Finally guess this is what it needs with all the
downloads and memory used i need to keep it up to date....I guess...hope
this helps others...i was ready to tear this phone apart and just buy a
new one...just saved some $$
First check voltage, using a meter, at the plug coming from the adapter. If all is well, then you have to tear the laptop apart piece by piece to get to the wiring of the plug. If you finally get there, look for broken wires, burn marks, etc.. If the cord is good, plug it in while torn apart and check voltages where the wire solders into the motherboard. If something is amiss, there's a bad wire that needs replaced. If you're still having problems, and feel adventurous, retouch the solder connections on the mainboard where the wires from the power plug connect to. If it still isn't charging, it might be a bad battery or motherboard. Either way, it's not that easy to fix (except for getting a replacement battery)
Make sure the battery has a full charge, and that it's plugged into a wall socket, then try the power button. You will get the same symptoms as a bad power switch if your battery power is very low. Other than that, the battery could be bad, or going bad. If the problem is a faulty power switch, you will have to have it replaced.
Double check and make sure that the AC power cord is ok and that it's firmly connected to the laptop. Also check and make sure the cord or part that goes into the AC adapter converter is plugged all the way in. Finally, most laptops will have some sort of a "Plugged in" indicator or LED light on the laptop indicating that it's plugged into 120V AC. If you seen nothing like this, then it is most likely the power cord. If your battery is bad or was going bad, the laptop should still work when plugged in. Finally, make sure that your battery is firmly seated into the laptop. Some laptops will not function when there is no battery, even when plugged in. If you determine that either the battery or plug is defective, of course, you can order a replacement online or from the manufacturer. You can also try EBAY for better prices.
Same problem with mine. Relays click, sound, no picture and a flashing power LED. I finally found a schematic online. I went through the high voltage circuits and found the power transistor 2SC5570 was shorted out. There is also a pico fuse in that area but my was not open. I replaced the transistor and prayed the flyback transformer was not shorted. It wasn't, I'm watching my old 36" right now. Not a bad fix (17.00) bucks. Wonder what a service tech would have charged ;)
