The b?ttery has probably died and the only power source is from your charger.

Laptop won't charge. Replaced battery and charger and still does not work.


Please check the connector / port where u plug-in the charger. Does it happen with all other compatible chargers or only with the one you have. Also try charging some other compatible laptop with the same charger. If that works, it means there is some problem with the port. Its not making the connections well.

I have a Toshiba U500 00X laptop with 19V power supply which I do not have with me at the moment. I do have an ASUS 19V AC adapter with positive terminal on the inside of the circular plug. The diagram on...


Hi, what your toshiba laptop model and asus laptop model? You can use the asus ac adapter on your toshiba laptop only if the folllowing three conditions are met:
1) Output Voltage is within +/- 5% of your old charger's output.

For example, if your old charger provides 19V, then you can use a charger that provides 20.5V or 18.5V.

2) Output Current is the same or higher than that of your old charger.

For example, if your original adapter provides 3.42 Amps, then you can use a charger that provides 3.42 Amps, 3.9 Amps or higher.

3) Connector tip must fit securely into your laptop.

For the specifications of the two adapters, you may check it here:

My charger will not charge the computer, and when it is plugged in it is getting really hot...is it my charger or battery??


Toshiba laptops run really hot, normally. It is one thing that I dislike about them. I never investigated, but presumed it was processor, as the heat was being removed by the fan.

TOSHIBA SATELLITE A200 BATTERY PROBLEMS


Hello,

This problem is very common and can be because of any of these reasons-

1-Wrong Charger,in case you are using some other charger ..i mean other than the one which came with your TOSHIBA laptop.

2-The transformer of the charger is releasing more than the rated voltage.

3-The earth terminal (one of 3 terminals of charger pin) is short (not working)..

I would recommend you to get TOSHIBA CHARGER OF SAME MODEL from your friend or go to TOSHIBA STORE and ask them for TOSHIBA (ORIGINAL) and connect it to see whether laptop its charging or not.

If it works then you need to change your charger

and if not,then you need to get the charging circuit repaired.

NEVER USE SOME OTHER CHARGER (OTHER THAN TOSHIBA) IT CAN SHORTEN THE LIFE OF YOUR BATTERY AND CAN EVEN SHORT YOUR CHARGING CIRCUIT.

have a nice time ahead...take care

Turn off computer, take out charger, then try taking the battery out of the laptop (located at the bottom of the laptop) or side then re-insert and turn on laptop and plug charger back in. Hope this works! if not you either need a new charger or new battery, I suggest u find someone with a toshiba charger to test if it is a problem with the charger or your battery! keep me posted! and good luck

This is a problem with your charger, I had the problem with my toshiba Sattelite, it was either a break in the wire or a short in the brick. You need to purchase a new charger.

Toshiba Tecra 8000 keeps switching itself off.


I'd suggest removing the battery. Most laptops can run directly off the AC adapter. If it will boot up OK without the bad battery, you can either leave it like that, or buy a new battery.

If it won't boot, then you have problems other than the battery.

Toshiba Laptop A205-S4577 won't start up


If the battery is removed, it should still start up with the charger connected. A lot of laptops develope problems with the jack where the power supply plugs in, from constantly plugging & unplugging the charger. The jack in the back of the computer is probably bad.
