Battery and Charger problems

I can not use my laptop with the charger plugged in. When the laptop is going just on battery it is fine but as soon as i plug the charger in the laptop turns off instantly and i can not turn it back on untill i take the battery out and put it back in. When i plug the charger in before i turn the laptop on (so the orange light comes on) and try turn it on it makes a few noises then the fan goes mental and wont stop untill i take the battery out again.

AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.


So your saying the charger will charge the battery, as long as the laptop is off...But when it is charged, you remove the ac adapter, start up the laptop, running on battery power alone, then hook the ac adapter to it, and the laptop cuts off..???

Hi David
It sounds like a fault to its power transition section circuit. Actually, this circuit is built inside the mother board to your laptop.

Toshiba Satellite A45-S120 laptop battery does not charge


Sounds like you need a new battery. Try removing the battery and running the machine on mains power. If that works, you know the charger is ok. Its usual for batteries to deteriorate over a few years, so my money would go on a new one.

Remove the battery and try again.

If the laptop works ok with the charger connected (with battery taken out), then the battery needs to be replaced.

Refer to user guide on how to remove the battery.

Charger light going off when laptop plugged in. Light is on when no computer is plugged in, but as soon as i do the light goes out and no charge is being sent.


its usually the other way around iof the battery is fully charged. Light off when removed from the charger. Have you tried another charger? Especially try another battery if you have onje. It may be the battery itself is at fault.

I suggest taking the unit to a PC shop and have them check both the condition of the battery and the Connedction /charger unit

Thanks for using FIXYA
