Are you using the original charger or a universal replacement? As loose fitting power plug can cause this problem but so can a loose connection at the power jack (repairable) or a cracked trace on the main board from stress at the power jack (not usually repairable - ie needs a new board). JC

Labtop freezing often and shutting down

Actually your make and model of satellite was the worst of toshiba's recent production- the estimate was 16-18% have displayed what's called an intermitten i/o failure to the main board. (Input output of processing data to the mother or logic board that processes the overall functioning of the comp~ the brain of the comp). This has plagued Toshiba's production for the last 3-5 years, and 9-18% of units have been affected. The good news is: it's neither a logic board nor electrical failure! And the repair is both easy, a DYI repair for any novice, and super inexpensive (well in the grand scheme of comps). What will fix your laptop is new RAM. Your toshiba can seat up to 8gs and as little as 4g. It uses DDR3 RAM, paired. The ram sits in the main board and over sees the i/o of data, is a main part of the EFI (the firmware interface of your hardware), and is in charge of ensuring the electrical assembly circuit is complete. Cost of parts on Amazon (spring for new RAM) will run you $50-65, the repair is 3 screws, pop out old ram, pop in new, replace panel, screw back in 3 screws. It's the easiest possible repair you can do yourself, even listed in the owners manual. See links below. 1st is your ownwers manual, 2nd is to to your laptops ram replacement guide. I'm an A+ PC repair tech and an ACMT apple repair tech. I rarely recommend DIY, but this is cake. If you boot after and see 3 blinking lights, you didn't put the ram all the way in. good luck! Next time, buy a toshiba TV, but not a laptop.... :)

Toshiba satellite hangs when adaptor is pluged in

If the laptop works fine with the battery but fails when the adapter is plugged , the there are transient voltages from the adapters SMPS. You will need to remove and check for failure of capacitors, possible the main tank capacitor is leaking or under value.
open and confirm but do not connect to laptop unless this is checked as you can damage the mother board.

Toshiba Satellite L300 shuts down when ac power plugged in

How about this step, try to turn off the laptop itself. Remove the cables and battery just like what you did before, then press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Then, reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop and then turn on the computer itself. If the laptop restarts, shuts down or freezes with the AC power cables, two things that you should seriously consider. It might be the power cable itself, AC cable port or the circuitry going to the motherboard. And since you have cleaned out the fan and heat sink, you have isolated that problem. Have you plug-in another power cable on your laptop? If yes, then check if it works. Otherwise, the main issue is that the AC port is loose or the circuitry of AC adapter going to the motherboard is not not working. You can re-open the unit and check the circuitry from the AC port going to the motherboard. You may check the circuitry from AC port to the power supply if it is ok. If symptom persist, please contact your local dealer...

My Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 works fine if I use a battery charged on an identical machine, with the same mains charger. With the mains charger plugged in it either shows 'plugged in not charging' or...

It sounds like the connector from the A/C adapter to the motherboard is loose or the inside of the adapter plug that attaches to the motherboard is defective.

When i plug in a/c adapter to toshiba laptop it sparks at

A couple of possibilities:

1) The power jack on the main board needs to be resoldered. Sometimes the connections break at the circuit board because of power plug flexing. This is not a difficult repair, but it means taking the main board out so you can reach the solder side (bottom) of the board. In some cases the main board can be damaged because of heating and arcing at the bad connections, and occasionally the damage is serious enough that the board needs to be replaced.

2) The main board in the computer has failed. Almost all of the electronics in a laptop is on one big circuit board, and when it fails, a "no boot" condition is a very common result.

If you don't feel comfortable taking out all the screws and covers to get the board out to try your own repair, I would suggest getting an estimate from a servicer. The shop I used to work for charged a little under $100 to repair the board if it was bad connections.
