Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro M300-S1002X Notebook
This is driving me crazy, and I'm almost giving up on my Toshiba....
I have tried a New battery and a New AC Adapter already... it got fixed for a few days, then the problem comes again.
I've noticed that if my battery is low, like 20% or less, connecting AC adapter results in 10 seconds or so of "plugged in, charging", and then, not charging. I disconnect and connect, same results. Remove battery and install again, it works for a little while, then it fails again. If I close the laptop, it will charge battery. If I open and use an application, for example, Internet Explorer, as soon as the application opens, battery charging indicator turns off, and "Plugged in, not charging" comes again. So the thing is I'm not able to use my computer for long periods of time, because it needs to be closed in order to recharge the battery. Any ideas???
my toshiba satellite pro m300 charges only when i shut it down, or when its closed - on standby- but as soon as the systems boots up the light turns off and it stops charging... after its battery time it does die... so i know its definitely not charging
It sounds like the power socket on the laptop is faulty and needs replacing or resoldering. To check this, power up the latop with the power adapter, wriggle the plug in the power socket and check if the battery charge indicator flicks on and off indicating charging and not charging. If it indicator flicks on and off then you have a faulty power socket.
This can be repaired but required the laptop to be completely dismantled to access the power connector.
