With both above posts above included I want to add my experience with 3 Toshibas.

1. The A75 series was very prone to the power supply becoming loose on the motherboard. Those who are moderately good at DIY projects can resolder this. There are good photos elsewhere to show how. A loose connector will cause the power LED on your computer to flicker, sometimes the machine will turn off, etc. because the AC supply is unpredictable. Unfortunately, Toshiba and others may sell you a NEW power supply, which then can give you a second, and different, problem. The new power supply may not produce enough AMPS for the A75

2. The A75 series is VERY energy hungry and must have a power supply of 19v and 6.3 AMPS. The amps is CRUCIAL. The newer Toshibas run on 3.4 amps and a replacement power supply of the wrong size will show a green LED for power, it will charge your Battery in the system off( i.e computer plugged in but turned off mode) but it will not allow windows to run, even though it will allow you into BIOS setup. This combination means you have to charge the battery in the OFF mode and then when the computer runs, it is actually running from the battery, not 120v AC. The battery then runs down and the sytm shuts off.

So look at the Toshiba Label on the bottom of your laptop and read the correct voltage and AMPS!!! The 6.3 AMP power supply is BIG (6.5x2.5x1.5 inches) and is available new online for about $27.00. This problem solved my power problems on both an A75-S2292 and an A25.

Good luck

There are several possible reasons why the laptop won't charge. It could be the power adapter, battery or the power jack.

1. Remove the battery first from the laptop and then connect the power adapter slowly to the power jack and turn the laptop on. If the laptop turns on without any problem, then you would know that the power adapter and the power jack are working correctly.

2. Now, try to use another battery. If you could not find another battery to use for testing, then contact the manufacturer to test your battery.

If your laptop is still under the warranty, take advantage of it.

Have a great day!

Check with voltmeter to see if you are getting power out of the power supply. If power supply is good, then the battery is bad or vise versa

Had this tablet for one day, its showing 50% .. battery, when should I recharge..


There's no harm in keeping it on charge all the time. Unlike older rechargeables, newer Li-ion batteries don't need to be broken in by running them down and then recharging.

The problem with the phone is the charging port, the charging port of your phone is not charging the phone that is why it doesn't hold any charge,

All you need to do is to change the charging port of your phone and you will see that your phone will hold charge.

Take care.

Phone won't charge


Hi, The Li-ion battery cahrging circuitary is some what complex. For most chargers, the charging procedure is divided into three main phases: ? Pre-charging phase ? Constant-current-charging phase ? Constant-voltage-charging phase In the Pre-charging phase, it utilizes low charging current to protect the battery. However,in most recharging situations, the charged batteries still have some voltage remaining, so the charger does not need to apply this action, and just passes it on to the next charging phase. The constant current and voltage charging phases are the main charging phase for recharging the batteries, where most of the charging energy is transformed into the battery. The maximum charging current for a battery depends on the battery?s rated capacity. For example, one battery rated 700 mAh usually can be charged at 350 mAh to 400mA, for faster charging effort. When the charged battery is Li-Ion, in the last charging procedure, the microcontroller normally maintains regular charging voltage while monitoring charging current to determine when the charging procedure should be completed. When the battery is fully charged, most of the electrical energy is converted to thermal energy, which can result in high battery temperature. In this case, the temperature monitoring function will be added for the solution. But since most Li-Ion batteries on the market also have an over-charging protection function, the temperature detect function is rarely used. So it is better to get your phone charging circuitary checked at a local store rather than to make a charger,coz both may cost you almost same. all the best my friend. regards sreejith
