Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook
Started having intermittent problems with charging mechanism. Had to start wiggling the wire to make the AC adapter power the laptop.
Replaced the charger. Seemed slightly better for a while, then worse, then it stopped powering the laptop completely.
Searched for solutions. Found the next most likely culprit to be the input jack. Got a replacement and soldered it into place. Good continuity from positive and negative pins to the motherboard. Reassembled. Still no power.
Disassembled again. Searched motherboard for some sign of a problem, couldn't recognize any. Still no power. Is there a fuse somewhere in this laptop? Can anybody think of a solution?
