Tan wire above the fan

I am going to replace the fan on my Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100. There is a tan wire hanging above the fan inside the laptop. It has something that looks like a rivet on the end of it. Where is that supposed to go?

Re: Tan wire above the fan

That sounds like your Wifi/Bluetooth Ariel loop. Some laptops have the ariel installed but no WiFi/Bluetooth module, This is so you can add it later if you want it

My toshiba satellite pro 6100 will not turn on. The battery light and power light turns green but it will not turn on.sometimes it will on and hang on toshiba logo and if it check it will just off

There's a couple of things you can try here. First I would connect the laptop to an external monitor. If that works, then check to make sure that it is set to internal screen usage by pressing the function key and holding it while pressing the f5 key. If this works then problem solved. However if you get an external screen but the laptop screen still does not turn on then the problem is internal to the laptop you need to get a tech to look at it.

Next, if the above procedure does not produce any results, take off the battery, take off the memory, press the power key a couple of times, replace the ram and the plug in the ac adapter and see if it works. Replace the battery and see if it works. If it works without the battery and not with it then your problem is your battery.

Since you are getting the battery and power lights to turn on, I doubt that it would be your dc jack.

Where does the brown wire on a Toshiba Satellite 6100 connect to

The brown wire is the bluetooth antenna. The bluetooth socket/compartment is the smallest rect. shaped door at the bottom. Bluetooth equipped models should have a bluetooth sticker affixed to their bottoms (silver colored sticker) - they're rare.

What colour is the main coax cable for the wifi card ?

It's a White wire, and a Black wire.

I have no idea why it's named a COAX cable (Coaxial cable) since there are TWO separate wires,
and no shielding on the wires. (Just plastic insulation over the wire)

2) Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 Service Manual, (free)

Go down to the line that starts with Satellite Pro, then go across and click on > 6100.

PDF file. Give at least 30 seconds for the first page to come up, and there may be additional time required for the file to fully download.
Suggest you let it download all the way before looking through it.

Toshiba satellite pro's cursor "floats" off as though a mind of its own

Your keyboard is bad - the Toshiba Accupoint mouse portion of it, at least - just replace the entire keyboard. Access is easy: remove the thin plastic cover strip above the keyboard, then two screws that hold the keyboard down, lift it up slightly, and disconnect the keyboard connector. eBay is the best source for these parts, and replacements should cost no more than $20 delivered.

My toshiba satellite pro 6100 will not turn on. The battery light and power light turns green but it will not turn on.

The problem could be your display. Use the VGA port on the side of your laptop to connect it to a computer monitor, this will let you know if your system is posting or not. (If you see the Boot Screen it is posting).

Some hinges have screws that come loose, you can take the hinge covers off and tighten them to take the play out, but most hinges are have a pressed in piece that is non adjustable, and have to be replaced in order to get rid of any play. You won't know which you have until you take the covers off.
