Question about Toshiba Portege S100-S1133 Notebook

1 Answer

Battery doesn't work

Computer and battery were working fine - suddenly there's a power cut and i discover the battery doesn't cut in. When the power comes back i check the power meter which tells me the battery is fully charged. Toshiba power management says the same - battery fully charged, but nothing I can do will persuade the battery to work.
Tried testing the battery with a multimeter but couldn't get any reading.

Is there some fault with the power software/recharging facility I wonder?

I have a newer 58v Echo trimmer. Worked fine last season, but when I use it now it runs for a few seconds and then completes shuts down. If I try again, it runs for a few seconds and stops again.


This appears to be a good news problem. There is an easy fix/work around! Consumer reports found the same problem that you have discovered.

Holding down the check battery switch allows the unit to operate. Read the link around the sixth paragraph the story is told.

Echo Trimmer Can Be Tricky to Start

"Our testers discovered the fix by chance. Pressing the check battery button, a last-ditch attempt to get the trimmer working, made all the difference. While this button ordinarily indicates the battery's charge status, in this case it also served to keep the battery from switching into protection mode and cutting off power to the motor. The next time you fully charge the battery, however, the problem can reoccur."

Hope this has helped?

Radio doesn't work on batteries


same problem here, but with my radio shack scanner. When I disconnect the cord, however, the low battery indicator symbol comes on for a bit so radio seems to be taking in juice. May try a better brand of battery or some rechargeables.

I have a 6 volt battery from 1 power wheels and want to put it in another power wheels because that battery doesn't work. They have different connectors though. Can I cut the connectors off the battery...


i would use some jumper wires with alligator clips on the end, just in case it isn't the battery that is the problem, otherwise it is safe to cut them, just don't cut through both of the wires at the same time cause it could cause the battery to short and when you're hooking it up to the new connector make sure that you get the polarity right(positive and negative)

Unknown problem


I would say your battery is fine. What happened is the computer was running off the battery even though it recognized it was plugged in. There is a piece in the power jack that tells the laptop that you are plugged in, but it doesn't necessarily mean the adapter is working. I would have the adapter checked to be sure it's working before I suspected the battery.

Acer Travelmate C112TCi- Won't power on


Hi,
Remove the adapter and the battery from the laptop.
Press the power button and hold it down for 20 seconds(without the battery or adapter plugged in to it). This process is called POWER DRAIN.
Now connect only the adapter and try to turn it on.
If it starts up, there is no problem with the adapter or the laptop.
If it doesn't, it can be either the adapter or the laptop.
You will have to check it with a different adapter to confirm which one is faulty.

The second case is that the computer powers on only with the adapter.
Then you can put the battery back in and try powering it up.
If it doesn't work, try connecting the adapter too.
If still it doesn't work, its a faulty battery.

Sometimes after doing a power drain, the computer will work fine.
If you have any more issues, feel free to contact me.
