    sounds like thermal shut down (it's getting too hot). you need to disassemble it to the point where you can access the fan area.... remove the covers for the fans as well and clean out any dust and dirt

    is it just shutting off on it's own ?

Depending on a few things, this may be a feature or a problem.

Does it seem to shut down within a specific time period?

Does this time period remain constant, and change only if on battery vs. plugged in?

If this is the case then it probably your power management settings.

Check the control panel, and configure them to your preference.

To access the Power Options in the Control Panel in XP:
Start > Control Panel > Power Options

There you will see specific settings regarding monitor, hard disks and standby. Your machine is most likely going into standby, check the time, and select something more appropriate for your needs or disable it all together.

In Vista, you will see a more streamlined set of options. "Always On/Plugged In" "Minimal Power Saving" Etc. would be the best choice

The choice is yours.

Let us know.
Good luck

Toshiba satellite CD door will not open

1) ALL power removed. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

You may wish to lay a soft Static free cloth on the table, to prevent scratching the table, or laptop.

Remove the Ram Memory module/s. ('Stick')
Lay them/it carefully aside. Handle by the BODY. The Body is everywhere on the Ram Memory module, EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins at the bottom.

The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

4) Remove this Philips head screw, and push the optical drive out,

The top of the optical drive will have small Philips head screws, or Torx screws. They sell Torx screwdrivers real cheap,

Remove the screws, remove the cover, remove the disk.


[Sounds like you may need a replacement optical drive ]

L500D has a broken power supply connector inside the laptop. Is this repairable? Regards, Matt

The 'power supply connector' is the DC Power Jack on the laptop.

Yes Matt. Not really that difficult at all.

With most laptops the DC Power Jack is soldered directly to the motherboard.
Not so with the Toshiba Satellite L305 series of Notebook PC's.

The DC Power Jack has it's own cable, which is connected to the motherboard.

The DC Power Jack itself is a small rectangular shape. It slides down into a slot (Trough) made in the outside of the Bottom Case.
The cable leading from the DC Power Jack is composed of four wires, which are attached to a connector,

A) This is a pictorial guide to disassembling a Satellite L305 series of Notebook PC, down to the bare motherboard,
[ You don't have to remove the motherboard in order to access the DC Jack]

B) This a link to a free Service Manual for the Toshiba Satellite L500 series of Notebook PC's,

Scroll down to the second Satellite heading.
Begins with - Satellite A10.
Drop down to the second line, go to the right and click on - L500

This is a PDF file. It may take up to 30 seconds, (Sometimes more), for the first page to come up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.
(Page navigation may not be at the top of the PDF file. Hover your mouse cursor towards the bottom of the page)

(Pages 127, and 128 deal directly with the DC Power Jack.
Disassembly procedures begin on Page 121.
Read the Anti-Static Precautions in - Before you begin on Page 129 FIRST )

Observe Anti-Static Precautions
1) Buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap. (Electro Static Discharge)
The average cost is around $3 to $5.
Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.

{I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case.
Perhaps you have a large metallic object to use instead. (Unpainted) A large metal serving tray, or large metal knickknack}

2) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove. Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.
{If a multi-compartment container is not available you can substitute with a clean egg carton. Label each egg holder }

Some screws are VERY similar to others. Do Not mix them up.

3) Make a record as you disassemble. Make notes, drawings, and/or photograph/video record.
Nice to have a record to refer back to in case you are interrupted, and have your own personal notes besides the manual, and guide.

How do I replace the keyboard?

next to the F1 key and the windows key (2nd upper key and second to last key) are two screws, usually under some covering. unscrew and lift top edge of the keyboard towards the trackpad to lay face down. Undo the wire ribbon by lifting the grey or brown tabs and remove ribbon and keyboard. Then install the new keyboard by inserting the ribbon on the place. Lock down with the tabs and put the plastic prongs (close to the space bar) into the laptop body first, and then close keyboard onto the final position. screw back in and thats all. for any additional questions.
