How to fix TBX Error on Toshiba Satellite a205-s4707


Take out battery from it, and re-insert it after 15 minutes or so. This must make it a hard reset. If it too doesn't help you, make sure there is a software corruption has been occurred. Re-install the O/S is the only solution. Electro help

A205 speaker replacement


http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/laptop-disassembly-1.htm

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

2) Suggest lay a soft Static Free cloth, on the table you're working on. Helps prevent scratching the table, and laptop.

Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.
SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws.
Advise DO NOT mix them up.

You're going to remove the Top Cover. BEFORE this is removed you're going to need your ESD wrist str-ap on.

Electro Static Discharge

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out, (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components in a computer.
Wear an ESD wrist strap, have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source; and your laptop is safe from Static.

Average cost is $3 to $6. Here is but one example,

http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103245

The Processor (CPU) is the MOST susceptible hardware component to Static Shock!

Don't wear an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source; and you can use your laptop for an expensive doorstop, or conversation piece. (Oh that? Yeah, Static got it")

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/laptop-disassembly-1.htm

[Page1::Page2::Page3::Find another model; is on the Top and Bottom of all pages in White ]

Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
Go to Step 1 and follow through to Step 17 on Page 3.

The Keyboard Bezel has to be removed,
Keyboard,
Display Assembly,
Top Cover. (Palm Rest Cover),
plus the other components to facilitate removal of the above.

In Step 17 you see the Speakers. They are a large unit that can only be accessed for removal, after removing the Top Cover.
Look for a part number on them. It is a Toshiba part number.

Put Toshiba + part number, in your browser search bar, and look for replacements. (No -> + )

http://www.discountedlaptopparts.com/toshiba-satellite-a205-left-and-right-speaker-set.html

Just for a point;

The above speakers look similar (To me), to the ones in the Irisvista link. (Pictorial disassembly guide)
Searching just now out of curiosity, I saw different styles shown, for the Satellite A205.

Point being I would want to see a PHOTO of what was being sold, to see if it is the right one. A lot of ads for Toshiba Satellite A205 speakers, didn't post a photo.

Could be different speaker examples for the different model numbers, of the model series.
(A205 is the Model Series. The number/letters after that designate the Model Number)

Seems that Toshiba STSA205 is the number, but you will know when you remove the speakers.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Toshiba satellite CD door will not open


http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/laptop-disassembly-1.htm

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

2) Turn the laptop over bottom side up, Battery Compartment facing AWAY from you, down on a table.
You may wish to lay a soft Static free cloth on the table, to prevent scratching the table, or laptop.

3) Take this cover off,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/big/toshiba-satellite-a200-a205-02.jpg

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,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/big/toshiba-satellite-a200-a205-03.jpg

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

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torx

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

Regards,
joecoolvette

[Sounds like you may need a replacement optical drive ]

My battery charges but only lasts about 20 minutes once it says it is fully charged. Just purchsed a new battery thinking it was old (laptop is about 3 years old) and the same thing happens.


From what you describe and assuming the new battery was "new", I'd say you have an internal short which is draining the battery over a short period of time. I'd also investigate the accuracy of the battery charge indicator. Download this free utility which will give you a more accurate picture of your battery:
http://www.mioplanet.com/products/batterymeter/

I'm assuming you gave the battery a "commissioning charge" when you bought and used it?
If not, this is something you should do with all new LI batteries. This bit is reproduced from a website that sells batteries for the Toshiba satellite series:

"2. The new Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery pack needs to be circled (fully discharged and recharged) three to five times to reach its optimum performance.
3. Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery will undergo self-discharging when left unused for a long period of time. Thus, it should always be stored in a fully charged state and kept in a cool, dry and clean place.
4. It is normal if the new Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery gets warm when being charged or used. However, please pay special attention if the battery pack becomes excessively hot. This may indicate there is a problem with the charging circuit of the electronic device. Please consult a qualified technician if necessary.
5. To maintain the optimum performance of Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery pack, it is highly recommended to circle (fully discharging and recharging) it at least once a month.
6. New batteries are hard to be charged. Sometimes, your electronic device may indicate a fully charged condition about 10 to 15 minutes when Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery pack is being charged for the first time. When this happens, remove the battery pack and let it cool down for about 10 to 15 minutes then repeat the charging procedure. Sometimes, the new Satellite a205-s4777 battery will suddenly refuse to be charged. If this happens, a suggested solution is trying to remove the battery from the device and insert it again. "

I feel like an idiot - I can't find the SD card slot on my new Toshiba Satellite A205 laptop


Hi,
i,d suggest looking carefully around the top edge of the laptop base. your looking for a small slot, the size of a 50 pence piece. or a quarter dollar US.
this could be by the left hand-side towards the screen ( as Is On sony Vaios ) If you need a user Manual, they have them @ 7Manuals. @ about $7.00 Or £3.50p UK.
Payments via Pay-Pal Accepted.
Hope This Helps Mike @ compurepair.
