Yeah if you are planing to do it is worth ..I just bought last week a broke one and I payed something under 100$ ..and I changed the motherboard in one that was doing the ...if you think you will use it ..its worth looking on ebay ..or parts to buy what is missing
Anyway check the power line on the motherboard may be just something unplugged..or a little part..but if it does not get any power..its just that ..
The fact that is charging the battery it means that the power is ok from the charger and the entry on the check the ram memory ..and the power cable of the board...cause if the charging is ok ..and the fan is working may be something like a cable or the switch itself..( in this case the switch board is changeable in a few minutes and has just a plug and 2 screws..

Testimonial: "well i actually took it to a computer store where i live at and the guy looked at it for free, he said it was the motherboard but the power button doesnt even work, the fan doesnt kick on, when it s plugged in it doesnt do anything, so im wondering if the guy even looked at it really b/c he didnt charge me and he just told me i might as well junk it, i found motherboards for it online for like 90 bucks its just i dont want to spend 90 bucks and then find out its a power problem too. the power button is broken on it too, but that shouldnt stop the light from not coming on when i plug it in"

    you said something on testimonial...and if you found the exact model I will be happy to assist you in changing it ..cause it is a fair price ..and you said the button is broke ..If you mean the plastic on it ..and under it can still be powered this should not be a problem for now...but the only thing that may light on is the charging battery button (green one if it have ) if it is the motherboard (I think it is too) there is the possibility that nothing should light on cause the charging power flows trough the motherboard circuits to charge the battery ..and if it is something wrong it may just do nothing ..

    it do not takes mush knowladge to change that motherboard...but a few operations done with care ...You will have to actually strip it ina certain order...and be sure you check all back ...the only thing that will be plugged with a wire is a power on the back ...and the rest is just ribbons that have a nice system for getting in and out ..and some screws and snap clicks..
    the order is the hinge lid....than the hdd...the cd /dvd ..the back lid..the ram memory ..the hinge from the main part remove lcd...than the lcd..ribbon ...than the wireless..and so on I can even let you my email ..and when you have time you by instant messaging call...for free of course..cause in this point for me is just hobby and passion ..

Sound like the AC power jack. I had the same problem but re soldered it and that parts fine now. When you plug the laptop it into the ac adapter you should see the three lights lit up on the front edge, If not its prob the power jack. Very common problem with the p-30's and the p35's. Also i recommend if you take it apart to re solder the jack that you should remove the fans and heat sink and clean all the thermal paste off and re apply new thermal paste. ( I used Artic Silver 5 themal paste on mine). Its another common problem with the p-30 p-35, shutting down for no reason. The reason it shuts down is because the Processor is overheating . Fix the Jack , clean the heatsink processor and fans, re apply new thermal paste,put back together and you should be good to go. I had all the same problems with my p35 s6053 and it works great now. :) :)

Toshiba Satellite L655 Not Switching on

You mentioned that it won't turn on with the charger (without the battery). Does this mean that it turns on if the battery is in?

If it turns on with the battery, then you need to replace your AC adapter.

Laptop power turns on but nothing happens

I strongly suggest getting a new battery for your laptop. The cause of your problem may have been caused my an electrical storm or power surge or simply mishandling of the laptop.

A replacement power battery should cost about $200 if you shop around. Call your manufacturer, you may be covered by the warranty!

Unit shows low battery and immediately goes into hibernation, even though it is plugged into A/C

When plugged in does the battery charge, and do any charging lights on the laptop illuminate. If not then either the charger or charger circuits have failed. The former requires a replacementm charger, I suggest e-bay. The latter requires an expensive motherboard replacement. If all lights are as you expect them to be, and the battery charges, then there could be some obscure setting, or software, that causes this but hardware would be my first suspect.

Satellite P35-S611 has trouble charging

If you have to wiggle the power cord it is most likely the DC jack on the motherboard. It is usually the center pin in the the jack that breaks the solder point and the small tension band inside the jack housing weakens.

Toshiba P35-S611

Either the AC adaptor is broken (easily checked with a volt-meter), or equally/more likely the computer a/c plug (where you stick the charger tip into the computer) has broken a solder connection. This model is prone to solder failure at this joint, especially if you use the plug often. I fixed mine by opening it up and resoldering the plug. Ask a friend if you don't know how, or check around some computer or electronic stores (not the big stores like Best Buy). It is a rather easy fix...very slightly time consuming, but not difficult. Just a lot of screw removals, etc. Hope this helpls.

Toshiba satelite P35-S611 restore cd

You can call Toshiba, 1-800-457-7777 and request for a recovery disc. Every laptop has a distinct disc and it wont allow you to use a recovery disc from another unit.

I believe the disc is free and you only need to pay for shipment and handling.

Hope this helps.
