Toshiba M15-S405 Battery Won't Charge

The laptop will work fine off of the AC Adapter. The charge light is amber (for charging) but never changes state to indicate charged. I replaced the battery. It came from Toshiba at 50% charge. It did not charge and the percent of charge is now 36%. The battery and the AC adapter appear to be working but the battery does not charge.

Does anyone know if the charge circuits are part of the motherboard or a separate, replaceable daughter board.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Randy

    I did not believe what you stated at first but, I measured the voltage out and it was 15VDC. I then read the voltage on the AC scale and it was over 20VAC.



    Now to find a power pack . . .



    Thanks,

Disconnect the adaptor and remove the battery from your notebook. Then connect the power adaptor and see if it boots up. If it powers up OK now you may have a bad battery. If the notebook still will not power up, the adaptor may not be compatible or there may be a different hardware problem.

Dell c640 battery not charging


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Hello, If the battery won't charge and the laptop won't turn on but the ac adapter works with other laptops, then the problem is the port where you plugin the ac adapter. Some of the laptops has it built in to the motherboard. So you might need to have it repaired by a technician. Or if the laptop is still in warranty, you might need to send it to the manufacturer to have it repaired or replaced. But if the laptop works without the battery, or it will turn on but the battery indicator is not lighting up, you're facing one of these problems. 1. The battery itself is dead. 2. the battery bay is loose 3. the battery itself is loose Hope this helps

?how do I charge the battery


Hello,

You use one of two methods
Method 1
1. Install the battery in its compartment.
2. Plug the AC adapter

The battery will start charging, and the status light for the battery will appear amber. The light will remain amber as long as the battery is not fully charged. When the cahrge is completed, the light will turn green.

Of course, if your are using your computer while battery is being charged, it will take three to four times longer to complete the charge.

Method 2

Toshiba sells battery chargers which you can use to charge a battery outside of the computer.


Hope it helps.
