Question about Toshiba Satellite A10-S177 Notebook

1 Answer

My Toshiba Satellite R15 S829 has no sound

I just bought it through the newspaper.. and have fixed all of the ''issues'' it had except for the sound. Ive tried drivers and everything else i know. on thing that seems to prob. be the issue is, the ring of plastic that is on the headphonejack hole is partially broken off.... i dont see anything in the slot now, but maybe something coulda broken off in it at one point and time My Toshiba A-10 S177 Satellite has an audio jack that was kicked while headphones were plugged in.  Since then it has been necessary to hold the earphone mini plug in just the right position to get sound.  Since this is a 7-year-old notebook I don't want to invest in repairs or take the risks or trouble soldering a new audio outlet onto the motherboard. Instead, I'm going to buy an external audio card or USB audio outlet - eight of them are available from Tigerdirect.

Drivers wont fix the jack problems, yes you can get usb audio devices, i would get one with a jack outlet connected the the usb device so u can have sound on the go also, I think they even have a wireless usb with wireless speakers also.

You can call (800) 457-7777 and get a new set. I see Toshiba has bumped the shipping and handling to $24.95 standard, $29.95 next day. Have your serial number and a credit card handy.

Cleaning inside lcd panel for toshiba r15 s829


Remove battery then remove trangular black tabs (2) at the top of the screen. Then remove square silver tabs (4) at the bottom of the flip top. This can be accomplished with either a push pin or sharp knife just get under one corner and peel off. They are just thin pieces of plastic with and adhesive backing. Remove the screws underneath ( 6 in all) with a small screwdriver. Run your fingernail around the entire outside edge of the flip top to pop off the plastic front with screen. Wipe off LCD and inside of the screen with a soft damp cloth; do not spray anything directly on to the LCD. Reverse the above steps and if you were careful you can just reattach the plastic tabs over the screws.

Clean dust from tablet pc screen


Hello,

I have an R10 tablet.
I once asked a Toshiba certified technician if I could remove the screen cover and I was told that I am not supposed to do that.

Maybe you shoul take the unit to a Toshiba repair center in your town, or country.

Hope it helps.

Toshiba satellite r15-S829 has no sound at all


The socket on the motherboard was physical damaged, you can't fix it by your self but component level technician only. so you better buy a USB sound converter to make sound out form USB port of the laptop rather to fix the motherboard.

My Toshiba Satellite R15 S829 has no sound


sounds like you should replace the jack, it's prolly got you half way between audio and no audio or simply disconnect/cut it, that should revert it back to standard laptop audio.
