Good or bad. it needsa battery to tun If good then it runs on its own and if bad then support of the charger is required. Can run without the battery too if the charger is present.

MY MECER LAPTOP DOESNOT TURN ON ONLY POWER LIGHT AND CHARGE LIGHT SHOWS


1. Try pressing the power button for several seconds (10-15). It should power off the laptop.
If not, unplug the charger and remove the battery for a few minutes.

2. Then try to start it up again.

If left unplugged fro the laptop for a few hours, or if the charger itself is moved from room to room, occasionally we get an issue where the green light that indicates power does not show up at all. The...


If light you are talking about is on the power supply itself, you need to replace the power supply. Look on E-Bay.

If the light you are talking about is the AC power light on the laptop, then there are two things that are most likely. First is the power receptacle in the laptop. I have personally seen many of these fail. The other thing is the battery. With the system Off, and power supply disconnected, remove the battery. Wait a couple of minutes and put back in and plug in charger. If it continues to happen then it is most likely the power receptacle in the laptop.

Best of luck, Jim

The z565 does not start when I press the startbutton


Welcome to Fixya

Try to power up the laptop usng the adapter only. Take out the battery then turn on the laptop using the adapter only. Double check also the light indicator infront of the laptop. Power light should be lit up when you use the power adapter. If the power light is not present then the problem could be the adapter itself or the mainboard of the laptop.

Let me know if yor have further questions.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Acer netbook loses power, turns itself off


I would get the battery first. But worst case you have a bad power connection on the board that needs to be resoldered or replaced.

Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not,
Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not,
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

Battery or charger ?


well...this one is interesting, for certain. You bought a display model, so the chances of it working off battery are mighty slim. Could be that the m/b was running off ac power all the time, and can NOT charge a battery. I'd take it back, and have them show you that it will run on battery, which is considered a fairly important issue with laptops, at least around these parts on Hawaii

Laptop Power Issues


Hi,

Most laptop batteries would die out after a year or two. None the less, the laptop should work with or without the batteries.

In some instances, the batteries have deteriorated to the point that it will gobble up the power from the charger denying sufficient juice for the laptop's use. The temporary workaround is to use the laptop without the batteries. if removing the battery and the unit powers up/works, then you have verified that indeed it is the battery causing you problems.

If even without the battery the unit will not operated, you can suspect the charger not 100% compatible with your laptop. If it is an original charger, then you can conclude that something is wrong inside the Toshiba.

I understand that the original charger intended for a Toshiba P25-S670 is 19VoltsDC. 6.3Amperes (120Watts).

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
