Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

1 Answer

My Toshiba laptop model A215-S4807 will not hold a charge

Even when it is plugged in, it shows that it is losing power. My brother has the same computer so I tried his battery and charger but the same thing happened, the icon said I was losing power. It eventually loses all power and stops working whether it is plugged in or not. Do you know how I might be able to fix this?

    There is a tiny pin sticking up near the hinge. This puts it into sleep or hibernate. If it gets any dirt into it, it won't make contact. Use some canned air and give it a quick shot of air. Don't get any moisture into it.

Hello. It might be a problem with the charging set. If you took another charger and it did not work it is from your mainboard.

Rdrhow to find recharge componets on a215-s4807 motherboard?


POWER SUPPLY & BATTERY PROBLEM
If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

I have a Satellite A215-S4807. The original battery went completely dead (possibly from this problem), so I just went out and got a new one with a 4800mAh, which is slightly higher than the 4000 it came...


There is something wrong with the "recharger" components on the computer's motherboard.
Instead of charging the battery, and then stopping the charging process, it is "draining" your batteries.

Take your Toshiba to the nearest qualified Toshiba service location, to get it fixed.

I PLUGGED IN MY LAPTOP ADAPTER AND THE PLUG LIGHT BLINKS BUT DOES NOT POWER UP. THE PLUG ICON ON LAPTOP BLINKS BUT LAPTOP WILL NOT BOOT UP.


You may try this; Turn OFF the laptop, remove the power sources (ac adapter and battery). Without power sources, hold power button 10 secs. Put back the power sources, and power ON the NB. If the laptop will not boot by doing this, take it to the nearest repair center to have it check for possible motherboard issue.

Hi,

certain laptops rely on a battery being present.
Or a battery that holds charge.
i,d suggest refering to the user manual, or go on-line to the manufacturers website.
the laptop may be in hibernation/sleep mode. or require a hard reset.
visit toshibas support site for further details and faqs ( frequently asked questions )
