Toshiba Satellite L25-S119 Does not Power on

I have a Toshiba Satellite L25-S119 that does not power on when on AC power or battery. I have tried 2 different AC adapters. The battery light does not light on AC power but the same AC adapter works on another one of my computers. If you press the power button the battery light will flash quickly yellow several times and then go out on both AC and battery. Same scenario with the battery out on the unit but AC plugged in. I think it should power up that way atleast my IBM does. It does not seem to be the adapter and if it was the battery I would think it should power up on AC without the battery in as my IBM does? Any suggestions would be appreciated. The power connector on the motherboard is very solid and not loose. Had to have that replaced once before as the pin broke. Please resopnd to
thanks - gc

The Toshiba laptops are famous for the power jack wriggling loose from the motherboard. Once it gets so loose the adapter power stops and it uses battery power until that runs out. You can usually move the power cord around until it starts working again but this is just a temporary fix and the jack will eventually need to be replaced. Most computer shops charge between 100-250 bucks for this service.

Hmmm..not sure about this one..seems that your m/b may in fact have some bad circuitry, that the power supply sees, and won't run into...

the ac adaptor works on another machine, so your Toshiba sounds like it's having a bad time.

is it under warranty?

I have the satellite L25-S119 and it will not power on with the battery or the powercord. What can I do?

If you can find someone with a multimeter you can test the power supply... If there is no reading then its dead.
Take the battery out then check if it powers on.

If the above didnt help you may need to take it to a laptop repair place.
Dont worry too much your pictures & documents should be safe 9/10

I do have a toshiba Satellite L300D and No full power or no display . the power only turn on but no booting . I am just wondering what could be the problem. In fact this happened only after I tried to fix...

As per your descritption, it might be due to AC adapter problem which is not giving enough power to notebook to power on. However, try to power on the notebook only on battery power or alternate AC adapter. If it does not turn on, then it might be due to motherboard problem due to some short circuit in the AC adapter.

Additionally, please perform the below steps before trying the above procedure:

1. Shut the computer down.
2. Disconnect the AC adapter and remove the battery.
3. Press the power button down for about 30-60 seconds.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and the battery.
5. Restart the computer.

I changed the hard drive in my toshiba satellite L25 now it will not power on

Did you take out the battery when you changed the hard drive. It still has power in the circuits when the battery is in. You might have fried it. I would try taking out the battery and push the power button a few times (to discharge any power in the board) then make sure the hard drive is inserted properly. Good luck.

Toshiba laptop battery or AC/DC adapter

step 1.First remove the battery out
step 2.Try to plug in the AC/DC adapter and see any Power light or something on your machine. If you have power light on your machine that mean your adaptor is supplying electric.But still there're some adapter that don't really supply a good DC voltage
we need to further check.
step 3: incase no light nothing on your machine you need to use analog meter or digital meter to check that your adapter is giving out DC Volatage around 16-19V
Best of luck, takecare.
