WILL NOT TURN ON WHILST BATTERY POWERED

I have a Toshiba Satellite A200-195 that is causing problems. The charger of my laptop stopped working so i borrowed another one to check that it was the charger at fault and it worked ok. There is another problem now which i cant understand and would appreciate any help or suggestions. With the battery fully charged the laptop will not switch on, remove and refit the battery and it will turn on ok and work perfectly, turn it off and it will not turn on again without going through the battery r&r. Connect to the mains and it will swith on correctly. I have tried another fully charged battery and its still the same. Can anyone help please ? Regards Dave.

Toshiba satellite pro l450d charging problems


it sounds like one of three things:

1. Battery itself no longer functions
2. Laptop Charger has inadequate amperage
3. The motherboard is defective (most likely).

If you have another battery, or a friend with the same battery, you can try that first (and someone else's laptop charger).

If the problem is the motherboard, you can try to have it repaired but I don't trust many companies to do this kind of work. I outsource my motherboard jobs to a company called Laptop Rescue
(http://www.laptoprescue.com/laptop-repair-2/). Coincidentally, they also sell laptop chargers in case that's the problem. Hopefully it's just a charger or battery issue and not a motherboard.

My laptop charger is not working


Two possible causes:

1)your laptop charger is dead or malfunction

2)your laptop dc jack is loose or malfunction

If you need to turn around your charger at one position so that the laptop will charge, that means your dc jack is dead. Otherwise your laptop ac adapter should be replaced.

If you need to purchase a new toshiba charger, you may click the following link to take a look at Toshiba Satellite M30 AC Adapter:

Toshiba satellite won't turn on


Before you make a decision about the next step, maybe you would like to know why the laptop charger is not working. Here are some commonly found reasons for this problem.

You have been using the wrong laptop charger for your machine, or someone else has been using your laptop charger for another machine. This may seem like a harmless act, but it affects the battery on your laptop, and charger you are using as well.

Your laptop battery has become weak and worn out from excessive use. Due to this the battery is not charging at all (or charging very slowly) when you plug in the charger. In this case there is absolutely nothing wrong with the charger itself.

The wire of the laptop charger has got a distinct curve at one point, and this is restricting it from transmitting power. You need to look out for such bends in the wire, as this will ruin the efficiency of the charger in no time.

This may sound elemental and stupid to some, but it does happen to many people. Maybe you are simply using the wrong laptop charger by mistake, or maybe you have failed to switch on the power switch. Check both these things to be sure.


Any of these potential causes could be the reason behind your laptop charger not working. As a result of these, either the mains power lead of your charger may be damaged, or the power supply unit may be damaged, or maybe the lead itself is damaged or broken somewhere, or some circuitry inside the laptop is damaged, and not responding to the charger. It's hard to accurately tell which of these problems could be the real cause of your laptop battery not charging, without physically examining the machine.

Solutions and Answers

Now if you are well versed in computer hardware you can attempt to fix this yourself. Most people cannot do this, and it is advisable for them to visit a computer repair shop instead. They will examine the laptop charger not working problem, and suggest some suitable remedies for it. Depending on your budget, you can choose an option that suits you and simultaneously solves your problem. Here are some recommended solutions.

Buy a brand new charger which will definitely solve your problem of charging the laptop for a long time.
Replacement Toshiba Satellite M305 AC Adapter 75Watt 19V 3.95A

If you're hesitant to pay that amount, you can try and purchase a second hand laptop charger from eBay.

Get your's repaired and pay the repair shop the fees that they charge.

If your warranty is still valid, you can simply get the laptop charger replaced.

When i plug my charger in to my satalite L655 and turn it on. An orange light flashes.


Hello, stoneyless
The orange flashing you are referring to means that your battery is currently out of power. I would recommend trying a friends laptop charger (same brand and model) to rule out the charger, if you know the borrowed charger is in working condition and your pc still doesn't power on then you may blame the battery. From that point i would send it in Toshiba for a replacement battery AND charger (if still under warrenty). if warrenty is no longer viable you would have no choice but to find a suitable replacement for either the charger or battery. OR you can buy the same Laptop and take out the battery and laptop cable and return the laptop with the faulty equipment.

My Toshiba wont turn on. I tried holding the power


Hi there, Your ac adapter is damaged & that's why power does not transfer in your notebook. The capacitor of adapter is burned & that's why the noise started. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Toshiba satellite a40-s270 won't turn on


Either the power supply is not working or the battery has failed and will not hold a charge. If the laptop is 3 or more years old, the battery is the likely suspect.
