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,

When i turn on my Dell Inspiron 2400 Desktop Computer why won`t it start.


Is the computer plugged in to a known good power source with a known good power cord? Also, make sure the power is fully seated on both ends. When you press the power button are you getting any indicator lights? The power button itself has an LED that will be either solid green, blinking green, solid amber, blinking amber, or off. Do you hear any beeps?

hi welcome to fixya
i want to clarify first the problem sir so as of now the problem with your tv won't power on then you are using again the old main board is that right ? when you use the new replacement main board the tv is functioning will the only problem is that the HDMI / DVI inputs doesn't work. and now you encountered power supply problem like won't start up or something that cut the supply in which the stand by indicator is turn off so as my idea it has a problem with the old board. but before you come up with the board making sure all the connectors coming from the power supply is properly connected to the main board as will as flexible and lvds cable for the T-con board is properly inserted.just let me know if is that what you are asking for so i can give you additional solution thanks for consulting the fixya.
