Check that the power supply is the correct one for the laptop, check that the power requirements of the laptop match up with what is being supplied by the power supply.
if the labels match, for Toshiba the usual supply voltage is 15VDC, if the supplied voltage is 1 volt below recommended the battery will not charge.
If all appears correct then check the output voltage with a multimeter it should read 15V (-0.25V +1V).
If the power supply is a bit low you'll need to buy a new or used one.

Toshiba satellite l300 not charging, doesnt work on the power supply


Try removing the battery completely and running it with the power supply connected. If that doesn't work, try borrowing a compatible power supply, or buy a universal one, and try with and without the battery connected.
The problem may be the power supply, in which case the battery won't charge and the laptop won't get any power.

Toshiba satellite a40-s270 won't turn on


Either the power supply is not working or the battery has failed and will not hold a charge. If the laptop is 3 or more years old, the battery is the likely suspect.

Will not charge


With both above posts above included I want to add my experience with 3 Toshibas.

1. The A75 series was very prone to the power supply becoming loose on the motherboard. Those who are moderately good at DIY projects can resolder this. There are good photos elsewhere to show how. A loose connector will cause the power LED on your computer to flicker, sometimes the machine will turn off, etc. because the AC supply is unpredictable. Unfortunately, Toshiba and others may sell you a NEW power supply, which then can give you a second, and different, problem. The new power supply may not produce enough AMPS for the A75

2. The A75 series is VERY energy hungry and must have a power supply of 19v and 6.3 AMPS. The amps is CRUCIAL. The newer Toshibas run on 3.4 amps and a replacement power supply of the wrong size will show a green LED for power, it will charge your Battery in the system off( i.e computer plugged in but turned off mode) but it will not allow windows to run, even though it will allow you into BIOS setup. This combination means you have to charge the battery in the OFF mode and then when the computer runs, it is actually running from the battery, not 120v AC. The battery then runs down and the sytm shuts off.

So look at the Toshiba Label on the bottom of your laptop and read the correct voltage and AMPS!!! The 6.3 AMP power supply is BIG (6.5x2.5x1.5 inches) and is available new online for about $27.00. This problem solved my power problems on both an A75-S2292 and an A25.

Good luck

My Toshiba Satellite A30 laptop keeps switching off when charging. It works fine when on the battery but seems to overheat when I use it whilst charging the battery. Can you help ?


I would suggest that you try it with another AC adapter first, because it seems the adapter is faulty and therefore supplying more current into the laptop than necessary.
If it works perfectly with another AC Adapter, then you might just have to change your AC Adapter.
Hope it helps.
Goodluck!

Check your power settings. You might have it set to shut off after a certain time of non-use.

Always running on batteries


You can still use your laptop even if you take out the battery and run on ac alone. You can also leave your battery in with the ac plugged in for 4 hours to charge it even if the laptop is off. Hope this helps. Thank you.
