Toshiba satellite won't go on


Hello. It sounds like either...

1. Your power adapter is damaged/not working. Look and see if a LED is illuminating on the power adapter. If it is chances are it is working fine and the problem may lie on your laptop. If not replace it. The easiest way to tell if your power adapter is bad is to go out to Wal-Mart or your local technology store and purchase one of their universal power adapters. They are expensive but you can buy it, try it, and return it if it does not solve the problem.

If you are going to buy a new toshiba ac adapter, you may consider the following toshiba l355 charger:
Replacement Toshiba Satellite L355 AC Adapter 90Watt 19V 4.74A

OR

2. The DC pin on your laptop is bent/broken/loose. Look at where your power adapter plugs in on your laptop. Get a paper clip, bend it out to make a long paper clip and slightly push its tip on the pin inside your laptop. If the pin moves chances are either the DC pin needs to be soldered down or needs to be replaced. The part is usually cheap around $10 but the labor can cost more than $50

My laptop charger is not working


Two possible causes:

1)your laptop charger is dead or malfunction

2)your laptop dc jack is loose or malfunction

If you need to turn around your charger at one position so that the laptop will charge, that means your dc jack is dead. Otherwise your laptop ac adapter should be replaced.

If you need to purchase a new toshiba charger, you may click the following link to take a look at Toshiba Satellite M30 AC Adapter:

No power


Hello, If the battery won't charge and the laptop won't turn on but the ac adapter works with other laptops, then the problem is the port where you plugin the ac adapter. Some of the laptops has it built in to the motherboard. So you might need to have it repaired by a technician. Or if the laptop is still in warranty, you might need to send it to the manufacturer to have it repaired or replaced. But if the laptop works without the battery, or it will turn on but the battery indicator is not lighting up, you're facing one of these problems. 1. The battery itself is dead. 2. the battery bay is loose 3. the battery itself is loose Hope this helps

Toshiba satellite L305-s5955 will not power up


If there is no power light and it can't charge your laptop, it is likely that the charger is dead. You need a new laptop charger. So try a new adapter to confirm the real issue.

There are two kinds of ac adapters for your toshiba l305-s5955

Toshiba Satellite L305 AC Adapter 75Watt 19V 3.95A

Toshiba Satellite L305 AC Adapter 90Watt 19V 4.74A

You should choose the right charger depending on your original adapter's specification. If the original one need 90w, you won't buy 75w that will bring damage to your laptop. If it needs 75w you can use 90w too.

The toshiba laptop a505 S6980 will not charge the battery when the AC is plugged in and dies immediately if unplugged . Meters shows 0% available (plugged in), charging. But it is not really charging.


Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

I charge my laptop and it shows plugged in but not charging..and charging doesnt last long..why?? and when its charging...it will till 91% and after that it wiil just say not charging....


Take your battery off and plug in the AC adapter, turn on your computer. If it works then you need to replace your battery. If it does not, then you need to replace your ac adapter or your dc jack. It's easy enough to test another ac adapter at your local pc shop. If it is the dc jack then it will involve replacing it. If you can solder then you can purchase one locally or order it on the internet and replace it yourself. If you can't solder then you need to have someone do it for you.

Toshiba Laptop not Taking Charge


ya the solder connection connecting the ac power input onto the transformer is probably weak. aside from taking the case apart and resoldering the connection, not much else you can do.

Toshiba Satellite A105 no power


try looking at the DC input. My brother's 1st laptop had that same problem. All we need to do is solder it. Remember-1st dc connection, not the one on the MB.

Toshiba Portege 7140CT battery problem


Your ac adapter may be the problem. Is the adapter in good condition. Try using your friends ac adapter since you have the same model laptop. If it charges up your battery and the light stays on your adapter is at fault. Then replace your adapter or the part of it that is at fault. It could be the plug or base. If that does not solve your problem check your dc port on the laptop itself. Shut it down. On the back of your laptop where you plug in the ac adapter there is a pin. Does the pin move? If it does then you have another problem. The port may need replacing which most repair shops don't do. They usually replace the main board which can be costly. Hopefully that's not the problem. Let me know if either of these are not the case then we can go from there. Hope this solves your problem
