Toshiba wont charge

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.

    This is a big problem w/ the toshiba notebook.. It happened to mine while on warranty and they fixed it, but it started again right afterwards and went completely out as soon as warranty expired. Toshiba ought to take care of this. Anyway, I found a guy online that explains the problem and how to fix it. Try this link. Good luck. http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/20...

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.

My P305 will not charge the battery


A friend of mine had a bad battery. I advised her to buy a new battery, which worked fine for several months. Then she called and said her laptop would not work on battery or even plugged in. I had her buy a new charger. A week later, she called and it was not working again. We tried several things (she is some distance away) and finally I had her go get the cord from her old charger (luckily the trash had not been picked up yet) and it worked fine. So even new things can go bad - it sounds like the battery charger or the cord might be at fault.

How can i repair the power cord plug slot on my toshiba laptop it wont charge it?


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)

Toshiba satellite P205-S6287 the power button


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.

Laptop not charging


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.

Good luck!

Toshiba 36HF71 has sound but no picture


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 ;)

Battery not charging...


My impression is that you might have a defective cord if you still have your old adapter and has the same power specification try this first.

If the battery is hot and does not charge you might have a defective battery . Better have it checked at the service center before buying a brand new battery
