Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S149 Notebook
Satellite M35X. Replaced with new battery and power cord - almost $100 on laptops for less. My complaint is not with them. I think it's a Toshiba laptop problem. Front lights flicker on and off when turned off. Have to jiggle cord to keep them glowing. When using laptop, goes back and forth between AC and DC power. Battery continues to discharge - a percent every minute or so - though plugged in. Will eventually reach 100% charge. Often takes overnight. Used to be, maybe, an hour. Have 2 other friends with Toshibas, same problem. And no - do NOT feel comfy in opening/soldering power jack. Scrap it and buy another laptop???
Problems sounds like a damaged power pin from pulling or jerking on the AC cable. I use a Cable Retention Device like the one in this video to keep from hurting the pin.

Hey, definely sounds like the power jack is your problem, i have seen many companys including ourself soldering on the jack, but there never the same, ie easilly broken off again.
i dont think your power jack is making direct contact, i know you can move it about till u get the charge.
but i would say thats your fault..
Sorry i cant help more
Have a good new year
