It might be the connection where you plug the adapter into the Laptop (Might be?) It could have stuffed up.....When you plug it in again this time hold it flush to the unit or juggle it as you are pushing the start button to turn it on if you have success after a few seconds or so then theres your problem you have a loose connection in that drastic socket and you more than like will have to replace it. If that is not the problem then it could be several things the battery, the motherboard. the rams, the hard-drive anything?

Regarding your question you could try a power discharge for your device:
- disconnect the AC adapter
- unplug the battery (if detachable)
- press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds (to discharge the components)
- plug the AC adapter only (without the battery if it is detachable)
- turn on the unit

If the battery is not detachable, please follow the procedure with the battery attatched.

- turn off the unit
- disconnect the AC adapter
- press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds (to discharge the components)
- plug the AC adapter
- turn on the unit

My toshiba r10 laptop wont turn on the green power light to the front is on but the yellow battery light only comes onn when i plug in the power cord to it and it only stays about 2 seconds


Ok here's what you will do

1) Unplug the notebook from the ac adapter (charger power cord)

2) Take off the battery pack on the notebook

3) Once the ac adapter and battery is off the notebook, hold down the power button for 15 seconds

4) After 15 seconds, let go of the power button

5) Now plug in the AC ADAPTER (OR CHARGER POWER CORD) ONLY (DO NOT PUT BACK THE BATTERY PACK)

6) Now press the power button once.

7) If the unit boots, the unit suffered a slight surge

8) If the unit does not boot and remains dead, the unit suffered a severe surge and may be burned out and needs replacing

I hope this helps and let me know how it goes afterwards

Can I charge my Magellan roadmate with USB cable connected to the computer?


It depends on the Roadmate that you have. :
- If your Roadmate has a separate plug-in port for charging your unit IN ADDITION TO a USB port, then no, your Roadmate cannot be charged using your computer via the USB cable.
- If your Roadmate only has a USB port available for charging your unit, then yes, you can charge it via your computer via USB.
However, please note, according to Magellan, charging your unit using your PC via USB can take up to 12 hours to charge vs. 4-6 hours when using the vehicle power adapter.
FYI: This is mainly due to USB constraints on pretty much all electronic devices. USB cannot carry the same amount of power to a device. It uses what is commonly known as a 'trickle' charge to recharge a device. It carries much less current than a full-blown charger (like an AC power adapter).

Shut off and won't come back. It's like it is dead.


follow this procedure:
1. unplug the ac adapter and keep it unplugged.
2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds(Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up)
4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (A power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in)
5. Normally power on the notebook.
6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up. If the battery indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.

Benq laptop power unit 'short'?


The fact that the LED light on the power supply tells me that its receiving power, look where the AC adapter goes and check the pin to see if it is loose, this sounds like feedback from the computer causing the power supply light to dim or go out

let me know how you get on
