Question about Toshiba Satellite P205D-S8804 Laptop
I was disassembling my lap top and powered it down. I accidently. Turned it on and I was takeing the batteryout at the same time. I broke it down to about half way and cleaned it reassembled it and now there is no peer what so ever. If I plug in my ac it just flicks once. The battery will not do anything and neither will the ac cord. Does anyone know what to do with this hunk of junk now

The Toshiba laptops are famous for the power jack wriggling loose from the motherboard. Once it gets so loose the adapter power stops and it uses battery power until that runs out. You can usually move the power cord around until it starts working again but this is just a temporary fix and the jack will eventually need to be replaced. Most computer shops charge between 100-250 bucks for this service.

Your concern (auto shutting down) with Toshiba could be caused by excessive power drain by some of the attached devices such as the WiFi, LAN among others. On the other hand, it could also indicate that the battery is already weak and constantly requires charging and at times eats up most of the power from the adapter leaving nothing for the motherboard to use. In some repairs I have done, switching off / or removing entirely unneeded devices correct the problem. In some instances, auto shut down is caused by dirty/clogged airducts/heatsink of the processor, failing blower/fan and/or poor ventilation.
Of course, it could not be ruled out that internal problem with the power supply/regulator to have caused the shut down. Alternately, there are some viruses and malwares that could trigger shutdowns.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Unplug the powercord and try to move around the DC-Jack with a small flatheat screwdriver. If the jack moves around freely or the middle pin has too much slack you most likely have a defective DC-Jack. You can replace it yourself there are guides online that show you how to do this. The repair takes about 2-3 hours. I work for a company called Laptop Repair NYC and we do this repair frequently.

How about this step, try to turn off the laptop itself. Remove the cables and battery just like what you did before, then press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Then, reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop and then turn on the computer itself. If the laptop restarts, shuts down or freezes with the AC power cables, two things that you should seriously consider. It might be the power cable itself, AC cable port or the circuitry going to the motherboard. And since you have cleaned out the fan and heat sink, you have isolated that problem. Have you plug-in another power cable on your laptop? If yes, then check if it works. Otherwise, the main issue is that the AC port is loose or the circuitry of AC adapter going to the motherboard is not not working. You can re-open the unit and check the circuitry from the AC port going to the motherboard. You may check the circuitry from AC port to the power supply if it is ok. If symptom persist, please contact your local dealer...
