Question about Toshiba Satellite A60 Notebook

3 Answers

My Toshiba Satellite AS205-5000, will not turn on nor does the fan come on. When the low battery sign came on, I plugged in the AC adapter to charge it, and it shut down and wasn't charging. After it shut down on it's own, I tried to turn it on, and then the power light came on only a few seconds then turned off while the battery light kept blinking while holding the power button down. After giving up, and wondering if it's my battery or the AC adapter. Now when I plug in the AC adapter I get no power and no fan turning on. Clueless.

You Need To Replace the DC Jack..this involves desoldering the old/faulty dc jack from the motherboard, then cleaning the board, then soldering a new dc jack in place of the old...

But First, Test Your AC Adapter - use a multimeter (available at any home improvement store for under $7)...

I'd like to thank everyone who helped me try to solve this problem. I managed to get a battery online and it worked. I thought that batteries lasted a long time considering that I had the laptop since last year of march. Thank you very much!

My daughters Toshiba satellite l505d will not boot up correctly. It starts but then nothing happens. What do I need to do. Have already taken battery out and restarted. Any help would be helpful.


Try the following.
1. Remove battery and plug in the AC Adapter and check if it works
If yes - Battery is defective
If no - Motherboard Problem/AC adapter

2. Check the AC adapter LED indicator if its lighted or not(double check by a multitester)
If lighted - it works properly
if not - replace
3. Try to reinstall WINDOWS operating system by the use of the installer CD
4. Reformat your computer and install necessary drivers and applications

Thanks. Cheers!

My Toshiba wont turn on. I tried holding the power


Hi there, Your ac adapter is damaged & that's why power does not transfer in your notebook. The capacitor of adapter is burned & that's why the noise started. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Sounds as though your ac adapter is bad.But it could also be the power jack where the ac adapter plugs in also.

Laptop suddenly shut off and will not turn back on


Sometimes the voltage regulator in the battery hit a point where they fall below a certain efficiancy % they have to operate at. Once they fall below that % you must replace them, even if the battery is 100% charged. Its usually a good idea to pick up a new charger as well with a new battery since they are known to die as well. Make sure you check the socket in the back where your charger plugs into the laptop to make sure its not loose or cracked. Sometimes the plug will crack off the motherboard and not make good enough contact.. But regardless of that it should atleast turn on if the battery was charged and good. Best bet, new battery. Every 2 years you should get a new one.

"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.

Sounds like you have snapped the centre connector in the laptop. If you look at the AC connector on the laptop there should b a "pin" in the centre. These frequently snap off, symtoms are :
Battery will not charge
Will not turn on from AC supply.

There are some firm which will replace the ac jack for you but it will cost.
Interent search .. replace DC jack on toshiba
