Question about Toshiba Satellite M105-S3001 Notebook

1 Answer

Seems to be dead, not recieve any power


A few months ago, if the battery died and the laptop turned off, then the leftmost LED (power) would blink very fast when AC power was plugged in.

The only way to get it back up and charging was to plug it in with the battery removed turn it on (steady power light), then pop in the battery, and it would start charging.

I killed the battery the other day (fell asleep), and now the only reaction i can get from this laptop is a blinking blue power led. 

Reseating the RAM does nothing
The AC adapter is outputting the proper voltages
reseating the battery does nothing
no power when battery is in or out.

Toshiba told be to go pound salt.  They wouldnt even offer to allow me to pay for service since im out of warranty.

Any advice?

First its sad with Toshiba to address you in that manner all they care about is their wallets that sad.  You need a new battery but if I were you I would trade it in for something other than a Toshiba as is that is, least you will get something for it and bugger them (Tosiha) get something else other Brand.

You may have a DC connector problem:

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it

My toshiba m105-s3004 is dead set even if i plug the charger

Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Acer Aspire 5738Z won't hold charge

Sorry. It seems that your battery is dead.
If your laptop is working fine on AC power only (with the battery disconnected), then your battery will need to be replaced.

I have had a Sony Vaio notebook, refuses to start

I would bet it is the DC power jack. It's like the biggest problem that I fix with laptops. Some people change the whole motherboard, but even if you search online, its that little circular power port that is usually the culprit. AND, they do work, then die, work, die, etc.

This usually proves it: When you plug in the AC adapter, when the laptop is dead and not turning on, your battery charging LED also does not go on right? If so, I would be that's the problem, you can have the port changed, but a lot of people really charge a fortune when it is a simple job. Contact me if you'd like, I do repairs.

Good luck!

Is the battery dead?

Have you tried taking the battery out and running strictly on the AC cord? If so, and it still has a problem, then it's not just the battery.

Dell 1505 Inspiron... Dead?

Motherboard failure, you can buy one on Ebay for about $100.
To confirm, remove RAM, Drives, battery and wireless cards, see if the LED indications change. If no change, then the MB is confirmed bad. If they change, add 1 RAM module back, see if the system will post enough to get into BIOS. If it does, add other RAM module. Keep adding items, (Wireless, battery, CD Drive, then HDD) and ID the one causing the failure.

I have a toshiba laptop, and in the last few weeks something weird started happening. When the laptop is plugged into the AC, the power meter in windows tells me that the power source is still batteries,...

Change your AC charger.
It's NOT charging "When the laptop is plugged into the AC, the power meter in windows tells me that the power source is still batteries, and the battery level drops by about 1% every few hours"
That's the reason why: "battery has completely died"
If you do not change it you'll continue to "still it gives me the same low battery indication and will not turn on. "

Battery power problem

The battery contains cells (about 12 batteries linked together, normally in groups of 3)
They will die just like any other rechargable battery will.
The main difference is if one individual cell dies, it can dramatically shorten the amount of power your overall battery holds.
Replacement batteries are easy to find, but they can be expensive. If you replace it, then anytime you intend on running the laptop from mains power for an extended period, remove the battery.

Samsung Digimax V4 Power Consumption

I had similar symptoms as well until it finally died: 1) First started eating batteries like crazy, especially standard AA and rechargeables. The CRV3 seemed to work a bit longer. 2) One day out of nowhere the autofocus stopped working. I replaced the batteries and it worked again for 10 shots. Then the autofocus stopped working and battery died (with the lens stuck open). Pressing power, the LCD backlight flashes on, the LED in the view finder blinks, and the lens motor makes noise. Then nothing just stuck open. 3) Again new batteries and was able to close lens, take a few pictures and dead again with lens stuck open - same problem in 2. 4) Replaced the batteries a couple times and was able to get a shot or two off, and now its complete stuck open, even with brand new batteries - with same problem in 2 it just won't turn on. I finally sent it to Samsung the week of Christmas. I called Friday 1/7/05 to check and had to leave a voicemail. They called back Monday 1/10/05 to let me know they recieved it and that I should call back Thursday to check its status.
