Question about Toshiba Satellite 2410-S203 Notebook
When the power cable detaches from the laptop, the laptop turns off (no shutdown process, just off).
I thought that this was a battery problem initially. The power cable does not have a great connection. Sometimes when plugged in there is still no power getting to the laptop. When I jiggle it a bit the power lights start to come on.
I replaced the battery and charged it up, but when I unplugged the power cable it shut down again.
Any ideas? Is there some way I can take it apart and check that the connections from the power source to the battery are working?
Sounds as if the power pin (inside the computer) is damaged. The part is under $ 10 but the labor is gonna be a hundred to two hundred bucks. You can, if you are careful, fix it yourself.
You can also get a JerkStopper cable retention device to hold the cable in the correct position until you get the pin fixed. The cable retention device is designed to keep you from damaging the pin by pulling on the power cord. In this case, it sounds like it's too late for that.

Mmm i wouldn recommend to touch the laptop if youre not expert on that... it might be better to take it to some toshiba service and ask them to try your notebook with a new or a good working ac adapter... without the battery and with it so you will know if any of those parts are ok. Otherwise it wont be wise to keep trying by yourselve, you could damage your computer. Battery is easy to test, you just have to leave it charging over night and then try to power the computer without ac adapter... if it does not start either the battery is bad or the contacts of the battery need some clean or repair... charger is not expensive but battery does... so do not keep trying much, better go to an authorized center.

As the fan is not moving,computer is running hot so it is shutting down.Need to check the fan cable, reset the cable,if it works it is fine,other wise need to replace the fan.
