Question about Toshiba Satellite A15-S127 Notebook

All I receive is a blinking power light when I press the power button. This occurs whether I have it plugged in or try starting with just the battery. I get know sounds from anything, fan, hard drive, etc.

Issue can be a mainboard lockup. Please perform full discharge/power cycle

- Unplug AC adapter and all other attachments (If any, such USB drive etc)
- Press and hold the power button about 7-10 seconds
- Put the AC adapter back and turn it on

If issue due to temporary circuit lockup unit will turn on
If issue persist please post more by indicated more symptoms, such as heat, pattern of the blinking light etc.

Good Luck

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Blinking power light means that the issue your Toshiba Satellite A15-S127 is facing with is due to water/liquid damage. To resolve the issue you need to strip it and clean off the corrosion and it will be recovered for which you may use a toothbrush. If still the problem persists, then it is due to water damage to the motherboard down the middle over the CPU, chipset or any other component and these are required to be replaced.

The other issue may be due to some kind of memory problem (RAM problem). You should change the slot of the RAM and then try to start the note book. If it still doesn't work then as soon as your Notebook boots start pressing f-12 then reboot from last known good configuration. Please check it by connecting to some other note book.

You can also install a new copy of Operating System. Before that you should backup all the data by removing your hard disk from notebook and connecting into another.

Revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Error 2000_0333


When does this error occur?

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

How to install


Plug in the reciever into the computer and make sure the mouse has fresh batteries. Once you are in Windows, press the link button on the receiver. The indicator light should start blinking. Then within two seconds press the link button on the bottom of the mouse, the indicator light should quit blinking. After re-linking the devices move the mouse to see if it moves the cursor. If the cursor does not move, then move the mouse and see if the indicator light on the receiver blinks. If the device does not blink then try re-linking the devices again.

You can power scan for the code.
Turn ON the electronic device you want to program the remote to control.
Press the Mode button( sat,tv,dvd,aux) on the remote until the appropriate mode light is flashing.

Press the Power button. The mode light will stop flashing and stay lit.
Press the Up or Down arrow button to set the remote to the next code. The Down arrow button scans backward and the Up arrow button scans forward.
When the correct code is reached, the device (whether a TV, VCR, or other) will turn off.

Press the pound key button to store the code in the remote control memory. If the code is valid for your remote, the mode light will blink 3 times.
Turn the device back ON by pressing the Power button.
Press sat mode key once you power back on the tv to be able to operate the receiver box.
Try some other functions to make sure you have the correct code. Occasionally the Power button may work when others do not.
If the other buttons work you are finished.

.
If the other buttons do not work, repeat the previous steps. The scan will resume from the last code stored.
The mode light will flash rapidly when the scan has returned to the starting point and all codes have been tested for that mode. The remote control may not control some device models.

Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
http://homenol.blogspot.com/

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
