Check the power adapter with a multi-meter, the voltage of the power plug that plugs into the power socket on the laptop should be slight higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter.
If it is faulty, there are replacement power supplies available on the Internet or at your friendly computer shop.
If the adapter is OK then the power socket on the laptop is faulty or this socket has a dry solder joint connection on the motherboard.
You can test this by wriggling the power plug when it is connected to the laptop, if the charge LED flickers and if you hold this plug in a certain position the charge LED stays on without flickering, then the power socket is faulty.
This can be repaired, but requires the laptop to be completely
disassembled. I suggest you get a quote first.

Rdrhow to find recharge componets on a215-s4807 motherboard?


POWER SUPPLY & BATTERY PROBLEM
If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

I have a Satellite A215-S4807. The original battery went completely dead (possibly from this problem), so I just went out and got a new one with a 4800mAh, which is slightly higher than the 4000 it came...


There is something wrong with the "recharger" components on the computer's motherboard.
Instead of charging the battery, and then stopping the charging process, it is "draining" your batteries.

Take your Toshiba to the nearest qualified Toshiba service location, to get it fixed.

My toshiba satellite series a135-s4656 laptop stopped charging for over two weeks now. Though the adapter (power pack) is functional. Please what do i do (cos the system has been down since)?


How do you know the ac adapter is working? Just because the light on the ac adapter is on doesn't mean it's working. Does it work with the ac adapter plugged in? Just not charging the battery. If in the first case just buy a new ac adapter and see if it works, most are affordable some not so much. If the battery isn't charging then you will have to shop for a new battery. If both of those are good then you have either a bad ac plug on your laptop, or motherboard issues. Hope this helps, if you have more questions just reply and I will try to help.

First thing I would do is check the outgoing voltage from the adapter. If it is going bad the faulty regulator could end up frying your motherboard. Laptops are very finicky about their power and it does not take much to screw them up permanently. Think simple first as in power adapter, then DC jack problem, then motherboard power circuit.

Laptop dead


Try running it without the battery but with the ac adapter only, if that works the battery is the obvious problem, if not the solder joints on the charging adapter connection may be broken

Strange ac cord/power issues


Hello my friend, Try to check your battery if the is it working normal cause sometimes the battery itself has the problem its either lost contact or the battery is not charging or not normal. also try to see if the the the sensor or that links the battery to the software which is responsible to the update of charging energy is functioning normal but this is a rare possibility try to focus on the battery or the connector or power cord.
Hope this will able to help solve you problem. If you need more assistance just reply to this post. Thank you

"Plugged in, not charging", Toshiba Satellite A135 S4527, under Windows Vista Home Premium


It sounds like the power socket on the laptop is faulty and needs replacing or resoldering. To check this, power up the latop with the power adapter, wriggle the plug in the power socket and check if the battery charge indicator flicks on and off indicating charging and not charging. If it indicator flicks on and off then you have a faulty power socket.
This can be repaired but required the laptop to be completely dismantled to access the power connector.

There is power in the laptop.


if you say that either the battery nor the adapter was tested and seemed working fine but not actually giving power to the laptop itself then the problem is the motherboard from your laptop i m afraid
