Satellite A60 turns off 2 sec after turning on; periodically
Turning ON, 2 sec later laptop turns off by itself. Funs are functioning properly, HD alright, RAM good, and power adapter, too. Furthermore, works perfectly once "somehow" it turns on the way it should. Then can turn on several times with no problem, but by some reason laptop seems to "decide" not to do so on particular "moon phases" :) In my opinion, laptop turns itself off during system check due to abnormal readings from some hardware part, or something like that ... just like sys wont boot if battery totally discharged and no adapter present, but what's particularly in my case? ) Have Toshiba Satellite A60.

C0F24 Code is the code for the sensor that monitors the drum. I would remove the drum cartridge two black screws pull out the drum assy. Remove the drum be careful do not nick or harm the drum the sensor is located on the left side of the to the rear of the of the drum looks like to little eye of a bug. Dust with a brush NO VACUUM static could destroy it. Re-install drum and re-install cartridge. When the last time a PM was done Developer replaced and Drum replaced?
on page 4-29 (or 106 of the pdf) is where it talks about wireless. However on page 2-9 it talks about an orange glow to know your function is turned on. review the above manual and store for the future as I don't know who provides it.
sound like power supply or battery. first try running the laptop on battrey if the problem persists, then pull battry and try running on Power Supply only. if problem is fixed then your battery has gone bad.
Make sure the laptop is off, pull the battery, and just power it up with the AC adapter. Once you get it going, head over to the control panel, and check the settings in power management. It could be that the settings are wrong and it will not let you start it up with the battery installed.
Is it turning off by itself after being on for 20min... each time? I.e. is it consistently turning itself off after the same amount of run time? Check the bottom of the laptop... how hot is it? Might be an over-heating problem. Some freeware (MobileMeter) might help you monitor temperatures and see if it is a problem
You may check if the charger connection to the laptop is secured and doesn't have any problems. If the laptop doesn't show any sign of life,no led flashing, no nothing it is probably that your charge circuits or power on signal circuits are burned or broken. It sounds strange but they don't need a special motive to do that, they can simply die out. You will need your laptop dissasembled for this job and some knoledge of laptop electronics however. If you feel that this is not for you a service center can check the problem. Be carefull to specify exactly the simptoms you encounted. In worst case scenario they will asume your motherboard "dead" and propose a replecement. Be patient and try other service centers if this is the case.
