Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 Notebook

2 Answers

Toshiba L300 satellite --- Power cord does not connect!

When I plug in the power cord, the laptop does not register it as "plugged in". Sometimes when I take the cord out and plug it in once again, It reads as "plugged in" for only a few seconds. The connedtion on the inside of the laptop is also loose. If anyone could help me solve this problem, it would be much appreciated.

Sincerely,
Steve

Unplug the powercord and try to move around the DC-Jack with a small flatheat screwdriver. If the jack moves around freely or the middle pin has too much slack you most likely have a defective DC-Jack. You can replace it yourself there are guides online that show you how to do this. The repair takes about 2-3 hours. I work for a company called Laptop Repair NYC and we do this repair frequently.

There are several companies online, or you can find someone in your area, the "AC Power Jack" that you plug into, is soldered onto the Motherboard using 2-4 "Prongs", one or more of yours has "Broken", and isn't making a connection, while the Price of the part is cheap, the repair is "Difficult" if you are trained to do the repair, but I have done 6 or 7 myself, so it is possible, But damage to the Motherboard can occur when soldering the new jack in,"Burning" a contact or something, best to take it to a repair shop,$150-$175, or $5-15 if you can do it yourself, Again "DIFFICULT", so the repair shop is your best bet, the online companies have Guaranties against damage. Google "Laptop DC jack repair"
http://www.DCJackRepair.NET is in the sponsered results. There are self help pages for the repair,

My toshiba laptop restarts randomly when it plugged.,and again restarts sometimes it will shut off .but no problem occurs when in batterry power.please help me to solve this problem.


Many models of Toshiba Satellite laptops have a capacitor called NEC/TOKIN Proadlizer which loses its capacitance with time and hence laptop freezes, shuts down or restarts when AC is plugged in. One needs to replace this cap as shown here:

I have a toshiba satillite pro l300. when i plug into mains only the orange light comes on and nothing else.


Try removing the battery and using the power cord to turn on the system. Usually an orange light means a battery problem.

Will not turn on. Battery is fine, power cord plugged in but nothing.


If there are no display lights lighting up then the problem is either with your outlet, or your power cord. I would make sure that the adapter is plugged in tightly at both the wall, and where it connects to the brick. There could also be a problem with the pin on the motherboard becoming loose (fairly common in older laptops) which would cause the laptop not to charge. The only fix for that problem is generally to replace the motherboard.

Replace the AC Adapter, (ebay from £10.00).
Did it come with XP on it? Mine came with Vista and there are conflicts with XP and graphic adapters. There is no XP driver for the ATI adapter in mine.
Go online to Toshiba and download all of the updated drivers that you require. A user friendly system.

Toshiba satellite L300 freeze when adaptor plug in.


This is a middle pin issue, you will find the laptop doesn't charge either but will power the unit, if the power is connected, the laptop will hang and use reserve resources, if you unplug it, the machines performance will dramatically increase.

replace your power adaptor and all will be fine, i have had the same issue.

My toshiba satellite L300 has no power


Please follow these steps VERY CAREFULLY:

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

I am getting power thru the cord but it will not turn on The computer is getting power thru out


it's possible that the battery has failed completely.

try this:

1.take the battery out
2. connect the power cord to adapter and connect adapter to power outlet.

if you get a power light on on your device, attempt restart. if not you may need to either replace the cord that goes from you device to the adapter or your motherboard or the power plug on your motherboard may have failed in which case you may still have to replace accordingly.
