Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
The problem started happening last night when I plugged the ac adapter into the ac port, the lights would flicker but wouldn't stay on. The connector and the battery were cleaned with alcohol and I tried plugging it in again but still the same response, unless I pressed the connector upward then it would stay on or if I didn't plug it in all the way. Today it only flickers. Also I've tried taking the battery out and having the a/c plugged in but it's still having the same response. I haven't even had it a full year and I'm hoping it's not the motherboard. The closest Toshiba repair place is more than an hour away and I was hoping there was an easy solution to fixing this, any help?
Does the plug feel loose? If so that's not covered under your warranty they consider it user damage. You might be able to convince the repair shop though to hide this fact from Toshiba if that's the case. Otherwise they're gonna charge you about $100 for dc jack replacement. Pay close attention to your charge leds.
