Question about Toshiba Satellite M40-S417TD Notebook

1 Answer

LAPTOP /no power

Hi Guys,
This notebook has not even a power led , is it possible to check input voltage ,with adaptor connected ,at the terminal that connects to the motherboard ,with a multi meter ?. If i know the power is getting that far then i i can check another on / off switch after that i guess there is only the motherboard that can be faulty. It is completely stripped at the moment, apart from memory / cpu and cooler still on motherboard.
Thanks

It states you are not getting no power on your lap top computer :

No power or computer does not turn on Cause: No power from the computer can be caused by any of the below possibilities.

  1. Connections not connected properly.
  2. Third-party hardware.
  3. Bad power cable.
  4. Incorrect power supply.
  5. Bad battery.
  6. Bad power supply, power button, and/or power board or inverter.
Solution: Note: If the computer is turning on but is not posting (beeping) or giving any type of picture on the display, please see document CH000607. If you are uncertain if the computer is turning on or not, this can be easily checked by locating any fans in the computer or visible from the outside of the computer. If these fans are spinning, the computer is receiving power and this document may not apply to your issue. Connections not connected properly Verify that the power connection is connected properly to the wall and the back of the computer. If the connections appear to be connected properly, attempt to disconnect and reconnection both ends of the cable. If you have a power strip (surge protector) or switch used to turn everything on at once, temporarily disconnect the computer from that switch and connect that cable directly to the wall. This will help verify that the strip or switch is not bad. Verify that the outlet works by connecting a different component to that switch.
Third-party hardware If additional hardware has been recently added to the computer it is recommend that you temporarily disconnect that device or devices from the computer to verify they are not preventing your computer from turning on. Note: If the computer was working fine before you added the new hardware, removing the third-party hardware did not resolve the issue, and the computer is not beeping but is turning on, please see our POST troubleshooting document CH000607.
Bad Power cable Verify that the cable supplying your computer is not bad or damaged by using another power cable. If you have a standard CRT monitor, this cable can be used in place of the computer power cable. If you have a portable computer or laptop, when the cables are plugged into the laptop you should see a power light or battery charge light. If this light is seen, this is a good indication that the power cable is good.
Incorrect power supply If you are building your own computer or if the computer has never turned on since you purchased it, it is possible you are using a power supply that does not supply enough power and/or the incorrect type of power supply. Verify your power supply meets the requirements of your motherboard and processor.
Bad battery If your computer is a laptop or portable computer that utilizes a battery for mobility it is possible that the battery may be causing your issue.
  • If your computer powers on when the cable is connected to the portable computer but not when it is disconnected, we recommend you purchase a new battery.
  • If your computer does not power on when the battery is connected and when the power cable / charger cable is connected, try removing the battery and seeing if the computer can power on with only the power cable connected. If no power is still received, skip to the final section.
Bad Power Supply, power button, and/or power board or inverter If, after following the above sections, your computer still receives no power, it is likely that a hardware component in the computer has failed. It is most likely that the power supply has failed. If you do not plan on replacing the power supply yourself or if you have a portable computer, we recommend having the computer serviced by your computer manufacturer or a local computer repair shop. If you have a desktop computer and plan on trying to repair the computer yourself, we recommend you replace the components in your computer in the below order.
  1. First open the computer and verify the power connections. You may also wish to consider disconnecting the main power cable and reconnecting the power cable to make sure it has not become loose. Also verify the power button cable is correctly connected to the Motherboard.
  2. Replace the power supply with a new power supply.
  3. Replace the motherboard.
Good Luck,Please dont for get to Vote,Thank You

Hi this laptop with adaptor havent power


Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

My Dell CPi D266XT will not power up. The light on the power cord is flashing green. When I push the power button nothing happens. None of the lights flicker like it's even trying to come on.


Hi,

It is possible that the other end of your power adaptor is defective or just loose. Tighten it securely and try to test if it is emitting voltages by using a multi-tester.

It can also be that there is a problem with the connection form your power adaptor going to the main board of your laptop.

This is a very technical problem so I suggest you let a laptop technician look at it.

Hope it helps.

Thanks!

My Sony Vaio VGN-NR21J Lost power, the DC jack and charger were replaced but still no power to the laptop. What woudl be my options from here? Is there anything else that could be causing the power loss?...


In the first place before the adapter was replaced you should have checked the power to the battery and the battery terminals. Now if there was no power from the adapter/adaptor pins then it is also possible that the wire is hort within and so the SMPS cuts off .
Since the charger was replaced then the voltage at the battery terminals must be checked to see if the power comes into the laptop for charging. If the laptop does not power ON even with a battery in full charge , then it is possible that mother board is faulty and a cost estimate is important before the board can be changed.-- compare with the cost of a new laptop.

I have a panasonic toughbook cf-48. It was working and then all of a sudden it shut down and won't turn back on. I thought it was that the battery wasn't charging, so I bought a new battery. When I looked...


Check your mains adapter plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.

If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. I suggest you get a quote first.

No power from ac adaptor


No, there are no reset button or fuse in these laptop adapters, they are a sealed unit. The lead/plug maybe broken at the plug. Test the voltage at the plug with a multi-meter, the output voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.

If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. I suggest you get a quote first.

Power led goes on and then goes off.


Some years ago I had a similar issue with an IBM and with that one the capacitor that filters out the current (right after the power jack, usually the very first capacitor that gets the power) was short circuited. It was a ceramical capacitor, at least that's how we call them here.

HP Pavillion dv6000 -when I plug in AC adaptor, it won't charge


Hi ja525,
If you have tested the power adaptor with a multi-meter to confirm it is OK or the other adaptor is also OK assuming that it is the correct voltage and at least the same current rating. Then the fault is most likely the power connector in the laptop.
To confirm this, power up as normal with the power adaptor connected and switched on, when the blue LED dims wriggle the power connector where it connects into the laptop and if the LED comes on or blinks, that means that you have a faulty power connector, it couls be a dry solder joint at the power connector.
It is possible that the power adaptor is shutting down (thermal overload) due to insufficient current capacity, Check the Amp rating of the laptop, it is usually on the lable on the botom of the laptop and check it against the power adaptor, the adaptor should be equal too or greater that the laptop's current rating.

To fix a faulty connector, you can dismantle the laptop and with a fine tip temperature controlled soldering iron, resolder the power connector and hopefully this will fix your prolem.

sounds like you have an intermittent problem with your AC adaptor or dc input jack. Does the light on the AC adaptor light up when you plug it in? If it does then your dc input jack may be faulty. If the light on the ac adaptor does not light then replace the ac adaptor. Good Luck!

Battery will not charge


The three likeliest candidates are battery, A/C adaptor and laptop power socket. Battery ? Batteries typically last between 1.5 to 4 years, depending on design and use. They are not safely repairable by users or most computer shops despite what you may read. If you remove the battery from the laptop and can run just off the A/C adaptor then the battery is probably the cause. The next test would be to use the battery in another laptop to see if the same problem occurs there. If it does then the battery is defective and needs to be replaced. If the battery does work then it?s likely the charging circuitry in the laptop itself is defective. A/C adaptor - Even though the green LED on the adaptor is on it can still be the cause of your problem. Inspect the cord, especially the jack that plugs into the laptop. The jack typically takes a lot of abuse and it?s common for the cord to be damaged at the base of the laptop jack itself. Often the damage isn?t visible; however, wiggling the wire at the base of the jack can cause the laptop charging LED to come on and off. The only way to truly test the adaptor is to measure the voltage coming out of the jack under a load. The last part is very important; simply measuring the voltage with a meter does not accurately test the adaptor. An easier alternative if you have the option is plugging a working adaptor into your laptop. Laptop power socket - Most times when the power socket in the laptop goes it?s due to a broken solder joint or a broken socket. Inserting the A/C adaptor jack in the socket and wiggling it back and forth can often cause the charging LED on the laptop to turn on and off. If that happens then the socket or the board it connects to needs to be replaced. That requires a major disassembly and is usually beyond the typical user. Let us know if you have any more questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
