Question about Toshiba Satellite M115-S1061 Notebook

1 Answer

Battery Thermocouple This is one that has been bothering me for a while, I have a satellite m115 I believe its blowing the thermocouple in the battery and rendering the whole system useless, since this system will not run without an intact battery. I replaced the battery and 1 hour after replacement and computer working perfectly it did it to the brand new battery. Is there a way to reset/disable the thermocouple without cracking open the battery pack. Or a replacement battery without such a sensitive thermocouple. I assume there is a fan that needs to be replaced as well, to avoid the problem, but I don't want to buy to many batteries.

Hello dithers

we need to figure out first why is the tc shorting out in the batteries in the first place.from experience its usually the charging circuit inside the laptop.or you could even get your power adapter checked for power leaks.

Pilot light keeps going out. can blow it out


When troubleshooting a balky pilot, ensure you don't allow any unburned gas to build up!
Usually a problematic pilot is due to a faulty thermocouple. The thermocouple is a safety device designed to interrupt the flow of gas if the pilot light goes out. When lighting the pilot, you usually have to hold a button in to bypass the thermocouple until the flame heats up the thermocouple and it can allow the passage of gas.
Try replacing the thermocouple - a universal can usually be had for under $10.

Remove bios password on Toshiba Satellite M115-S3144


I agree with Ginko. I had one that someone brought to me, and I removed the CMOS battery. This one was actually soldered to the motherboard. I melted the solder, removed contact to the motherboard, and re-soldered the battery to the motherboard. This fixed it.

Pilot light wont stay lit on gas logs


If the pilot lite comes on, but will not stay on after it has had enough time to heat the thermocouple, you got a bad or the wrong thermocouple. It does take some time to heat that thermocouple.

Believe I need to buy a Rheem Water Heater Thermocouple. Where do I find them?


If thermocouple is from ordinary tank-type water heater, then it is a generic part with different lengths 15" 17" 21" 24" 30" available at hardware of home center.
I suggest reading manual for installation information, advisories, and required maintenance.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-Ruud-water-heater-parts-guide.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html#clean

There are good utube videos on replacing thermocouple.
Tip of thermocouple has to be positioned in the pilot flame.
The heat on tip of thermocouple causes millivolts of electric current that travel back to the gas control valve and the electrical signal causes gas control valve to keep gas flowing down the pilot tube to the pilot light.
If pilot light blows out or if pilot tube is clogged and needs to be cleaned, or if gas valve has gone bad, then tip of thermocouple cools down and electric signal back to gas control valve causes gas control valve to shut off gas going to pilot.

When attaching thermocouple to gas control valve, it is finger tightened.
Be careful and do not cross-thread thermocouple. Just use your fingers to start the nut.
Finger-tighten thermocouple and then add 1/4 turn using small wrench.
The end of thermocouple has a small piece of insulation that isolates the electric current from body of gas control valve. If thermocouple is overtightened, the insulation is crushed, and electrical current millivolts short out and no signal reaches gas control valve, so gas control valve keeps gas turned off to pilot tube.

If this is a tankless water heater, then open following link with troubleshooting resources and contact information for Rheem.

I have a 40 galon GE Smart shield water heater, Model: SH40T12AVH00, Serial # GELN0805V13908. The pilot light is lit but the burner will not stay on for more than 2 secods and then shuts-off.


I believe this unit does not have a standing pilot light and lights each time? Have you reinstalled all doors back into the heater? It sounds like the main burner is blowing the pilot off the thermocouple. You might try replacing the thermocouple.

Heads up on this product from toshiba here is what they say at their website:
(BIOS update for Satellite A100/A105, Satellite M110/M115, and Tecra A7 Posted on: 04/10/2007
Updated on: 04/10/2007 15:51:53
In very rare cases, the battery pack of your PC may stop accepting a charge, i.e., the battery stops working and no longer supplies power to the computer. To minimize the risk of ever experiencing this problem, we strongly recommend that you download and install the latest BIOS by clicking the 'Downloads' link that will appear when you are finished reading Support News).

Now about the mic.
It doesn't have a built in microphone but it does have a jack so you can put one in.
Happy Holidays.

Usually for lot of computers works if you take off time battery from motherboard and for laptop also main battery so totally power off for 20min, but it don't work for some laptops if they write pass on hdd or chip. If this don't work then you have to visit service.
