Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S149 Notebook

2 Answers

Battery: Fast Discharge, Slow Charge, Charging Lights Flicker, Runs off battery when plugged in

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

I would think that the internal battery connections have been damaged from the fall. They may only need re-soldering. Any drop on to a hard surface from almost any height can damage your laptop.

My Toshiba Satellite M35x-S149 laptop shuts off several times a day...we have replaced the battery and most generally have the battery out and using DC power cord. Can be working on it, and click, it goes...


This could be the power inverter. It has happened to a few people I know. First off I don't think you should have the battery out. I think the power distribution function needs the battery in to complete it's component structure. Next, don't leave your laptop on a cushy surface (bed, pillow,couch, etc.) This blocks the fresh air intake for the processor. When the processor heats up, the unit will shut off. Repeating this will eventually toast your laptop altogether. Make sure no dust has built up on either the intake (bottom) or output (side). Use a can of compressed air to clear the unit. UNPLUG and REMOVE BATT First!

If all is clear and it's still happening it very well could be the power inverter, it's about 60 bucks and you can do it yourself. You may find it cheaper on ebay or something. You will need the actual part number off the inverter. Google "Replacing power inverter for toshiba" for more info. Hope this helps!

I can't actually solve this, but I have to wiggle my cord around to get it to "connect". I'm pretty sure my jack is loose, but haven't opened it up yet to check. This website looks like it has a promising solution on a similar laptop: http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/07/16/satellite-m35x-fixing-power-connector/

Toshiba laptop power cable won't charge battery


I had the same problem with my HP laptop some years ago. you have a broken cable/cord and it is the part that is permanently attached with your power pack. If you look at the cord that plugs into your laptop, you can be able to see the faulty part of it. it is usually very flexible or swollen. You can either take it to an electrical technician to change that part of the cord. Your power pack is still ok, but have the technician to check it out first before you change the cord. Else, you may have to get another power pack. below is the full specification of the power pack that is recommended for your laptop.
