I've come across this problem twice since i posted you last & found that it's the battary cells, once the battary disscharges pass a certain point it's had it getting a new battary sorts the problem.

Try checking the power management settings in control panel.
& if there all set correctly, Then take the battery out & plug in the charger.It should run on it's own.
If it doesn't the chargers gone, but if it does run then put the battery back in whilst it's still on. If still no joy then wiggle & bend the cable from top to bottom & all the joints to check for breaks or bad connections, But leave the laptop switched on so that you can hear it bleep every time you hit a fault.
GOOD LUCK if you get stuck contact me for free advice...

My toshiba satilite L305D-S5940 Wont charge has new battery new power cord It comes on acts like its going to work then shuts off and sometimes wont come on What could it be please


Hi there,
1st : you can check from the power cable charge
2nd : check the adaptor charger if there is a light indicator or not, or you can check with multimeter to check the voltage on charger adaptor, does show the proper voltage for your laptop, you can check at the end of the connection that leads to the laptop.
note : Remember use DC current at Multimeter
3rd : if the adaptor running well, just plug on the adaptor charger to the laptop, dont turn on the laptop power, just see the light indicator with battery / lightning image on laptop, its explained that there is or is not the power current running to the laptop.
3rd.A : if its no power goes to the laptop then your adaptor charger is failed
3rd.B : if is there, there must be a problem with your motherboard, section power / power plugs, why do not want to charge with a new battery.
Conclusion :
- if the problem on number 1 & 2, then you can change the power cord and the adaptor charger.
- if there is problem on the 3rd.B then you can go to the toshiba services center for your problem.

thats all, hope its help.

How to always plug the mini-USB charging cord in the correct way.


I see several people having problems with their charger cord not plugging into the device so it charges or not staying plugged in because it comes right back out etc. I have found a way to make sure I don't damage those somewhat delicate and very small, mini-USB charging ports which are usually not repairable or replaceable.

I *borrowed* my wife's red fingernail polish and then I plugged in the charging cord on all of my seven or eight different devices and wall chargers which I have all labeled so I use the right one - I use masking tape and simply write the device name on the tape with a pen.

But, back to the red nail polish - I put a splotch of red nail polish so I can see it from the front of the device when it's plugged in correctly. This way the next time I plug it in to charge it, I'm not taking a chance of trying to plug it in backwards which can surely damage the female, mini-USB port, metal catch tabs and electrical pins.

Older Toshiba laptop runs on battery, but not AC cord.


on some older laptops the battery has to be installed for it to turn on.
if the battery don't hold a charge it's no good.. but you need it to get power from plug.

My battery wont charge but it says its charging. When I unplug the cord 3 times itll go up by 1%


Have you tried replacing the battery? It sounds like the charger circuit is attempting to charge the battery and the battery is not accepting the charge.

MD781 battery wont charge...will run with the power cord plugged in, I replace the battery first thinking that may be the trouble. Still wont charge...it would run for a short while on the battery when...


Hi

Can you please try to leave laptop switched off
plug in laptop and leave until the light on front goes green or at least 2/3 hrs

then unplug power cord
switch on laptop and use it or leave it until it looses all power and switches off

then recharge until green

when battery is fully charged always un plug and use on battery power
until it reaches about 10% before recharging

some people even remove their battery to preserve it if they always use power cord

if this does not sort the problem please come back to us

many thanks

My computer won't turn on or charge.


You need to diagnose the problem.
>First try to take the battery out of the computer and just use the charger to make computer run.
>If it turns on it means that the battery is what's causing the problem.
>But, if computer cannot run using the charger/AC Adapter then it means that we have a problem with the charger.
By doing this diagnostics you know which part to replace.

I neglected to plug in the cord to my cigarette lighter and the charge ran down to 0.I am on a trip and did not bring the charging cord. i tried plugging into lighter in car but it stays on for a feww...


leave it switched off and plugged in.

This would give it chance to actually charge as using it from dead with it plugged in does not always allow some GPS to charge properly.

You neglected to say which brand so its hard to give a 100% answer.

Most GPS should have enough charge withing 4 hours but from dead some older units require anywhere up to 18 hours according to some of the manuals i have laying around

My toshiba satellite m305ds4831 laptop will not


It's a motherboard hardware issue in all likelihood.

There is NOTHING you can do but update the firmware bios. The problem is that most bios firmware update programs require both ac and battery power at the same time :(

You can try to do it anyways by visiting Toshiba's support page for your model and downloading the firmware from there.

It probably won't fix the problem but it's still worth a shot....sometimes it works ;)
