Toshiba 1410. Won't turn on

I have a Toshiba 1410 that won't turn on. No noise, no screen light. On mains power the "mains" led is green, but the battery is yellow. Yellow flashes briefly when "on" button is pressed. When battery is removed, still wont go. Should it?
I thought that perhaps the battery needs to be in, and if this is faulty then it may drag the power supply voltage down as well?
Any thoughts?
Thanks
Ron

    hey, iv got a toshiba 1410 laptop and the it wont turn on properly, the "on" light turns on when i press the button but only a light click from the dvd drive and a flash on the "disk light" at the front and it just sits there, no fan, screen stays off, media buttons at the front wont work. and it dosent matter how the power is connected, it always does the same thing. battery(same thing) no battery /w power(same thing) battery and power same thing happens. however i have noticed that when i plug a network cable in the lights on the socket at the back turn on as normal. i have already taken the computer apart so that i could analysie everything, searching both sides of the motherboard for faults but still couldent find anything. Is it possible that this is a bios issue?

    Similar problem here. When AC power adapter plugged in, I get green AC power light, and yellow battery light which flashes yellow at first, then comes on steady yellow for about a minute, then turns green (assume the battery is taking a charge and "topping off"). Computer does not turn on at all - pressing the power button causes nothing to happen. I did notice that wiggling the AC power adapter plug on the back of the computer caused the AC light to flicker - perhaps bad connection there, including connection to motherboard. Haven't taken it apart yet - was cruising around looking for ideas before going in. Appreciate any input anyone may have. It's an older notebook that was given to me to see if I could fix it. Because of its limited RAM capacity and processor speed I don't want to throw a lot of money at it, when you can get a pretty decent notebook for under $500 these days.

    i have the exact same problem. Mine started the day my cousin spilled his beer into it. I was told the mother board was blown due to the liquid but immediately when the beer was spilled i grabbed the comp. and turned it upside down to drain. I took my comp. apart expecting to find bad things but Dont think the liquid even went past the keys. Dont know what to do now, Dont want to spent the money for a new motherboard if thats not the problem. Someone please help!

Sounds like a dead battery, You need to try it with an alternative battery, most laptops won't aeven switch of if the battery is damaged, also try ro pull out the motherboard and find for dry joints. i.e. any lose transistor or capacito and try to re-solder it, the put the laptop back together,

Hi.

Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.

If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.


Good luck.

Power up problem


it has nothing to do with the ram, it is the issue of the adapter or battery for toshiba laptop, if the output volatge form the adapter is not steady, the light will get yellow and blink,try it on another toshiba laptop. if it is normal, u should test the toshiba laptop battery by the multimeter, connect the electroprobes wiht the anode and cathode, if the pointer does not fixed in a short time ,the battery is the issue. change it for a new one.
