It could be that the DC jack (what you plug the AC adapter in to) has become loose from the motherboard, or it could be the adapter itself. Plug the adapter into the computer, and -gently- move the cord, just a bit. Does the end in the computer move around a little? If so, you'll want to get it looked at.

If the problem is with the adapter itself, you'll need a replacement. I suggest calling up Toshiba and see about getting a replacement adapter. If the computer is less than a year old and falls under Manufacturer's warranty, any parts that you may need should be covered.

My lenovo x 60 tablet battery shows 0% available, not charging. I have got a new battery and it still shows the same message. can u provide a solution


Hi deepak_nangi,

There are two possible reasons why you are getting 0% available, not charging prompt even if you already got a new battery. It couls be an AC adapter issue or the DC In. Kindly follow the basic troubleshooting below that will help you isolate the issue:

1. Remove the battery from your system and use the AC adapter alone. If your system is not charging using the charger alone, then it's already defective and needed replacement.

2. You may also try using your AC adapter with other system where it is compatible. If it will work with other laptop then the issue is the DC In.

3. The DC In is the port where you are plugging in your AC Adapter. It is buit in to *********** board. If the DC In is loosed your system will not be charged as well. If this will be the case then the mother board needs replacement.

Doing these steps will help you determine the cause of the problem.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

If a PC suddenly fails to boot properly, you should perform a hard reset as the first action. Performing the hard reset will correct many problems. If the computer still does not start properly, select your symptom from the list below to guide you to the recommended corrective actions.
  1. Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices and SD media cards. You want to test the computer not the accessories!
  2. Disconnect the AC power adapter, remove the battery, and then press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds to drain all residual power and restore default startup settings.
  3. Reconnect the AC power adapter (but do not insert the battery), Press the Power button, Look for glowing LEDs near caps lock and num lock keys, and Listen for sounds of a fan or other moving parts turning.
  4. If the computer does not start, the LED lights do not glow, and the display is black, you can perform one or more of the following actions to resolve the no power issue.
    • Verify the computer is receiving power from the AC adapter . Verify that the AC adapter is not damaged and is connected correctly to a working wall outlet plug. Verify AC power is connected to the system board by examining the AC adapter, wiring, and pin connection for damage. The keyboard LEDs will glow when AC power is connected to the system board. Damaged components, like the AC adapter or the pin in the power connector, may require an HP-certified repair.
    • Use a different AC power adapter . If you have access to a different AC adapter or power pack that is designed for the computer, connect it to the notebook and try to start the computer. If you own or have access to more than one notebook, verify that you are using the adapter which belongs to the notebook. CAUTION: Using a power adapter that does not meet the power requirements or has the wrong type of connector may damage the computer. On newer notebook models, connecting the wrong adapter to the notebook may cause the power LED lights to blink but not power the computer.
    • Remove the battery and boot on AC power only . A discharged or defective battery may prevent the AC adapter from supplying enough power to start the computer. To verify that power from the AC adapter is available for PC; remove the battery, connect AC power adapter, and press power button. If available, try using a different AC adapter, that is rated for the PC, and repeat this test.
    • Remove the AC adapter and boot on battery power only . A defective AC adapter may not charge the battery and prevent the computer from booting on battery power only. To verify battery power available for the PC; connect AC power adapter, allow battery to charge for 30 minutes or more, disconnect the power adapter and press power button. If available, try using a fully charged battery, of the same type, from another computer and repeat this test.
      • If LEDS do not glow and the fan or hard drive do not spin, battery may need to be replaced.
      • If tests of both the battery and the AC adapter fail, there may be a problem with system board requiring service by HP.
      • If LEDs glow and PC boots, the AC adapter may need to be replaced.
      • If LEDs glow, but PC does not boot go to LEDs glow, fan is heard, but display is black or blank section.

Batterey wont charge, charging port real loose. Is


If the charger port is already loose and the battery doesnt accept charge anymore then you have to replace the motherboard of the laptop. Port cannot be replaced individually,you have to replace the whole part for this issue.You can contact the manufacturer of your system and if it is in warranty then they will replace it for you.Try to check the charger/ac adapter make sure no part is damaged aswell...cheers!!!

Batterey wont charge, charging port real loose. Is this part of the hard drive, or can the port just be replaced?


Hello Sbyv hi, a loose port will definitely wont charge your battery, but before you replace the port, check the AC adaptor DC output, and see if there is DC present.

Laptop died suddenly and is not charging


Take the battery out and discharge the capacitors by holding down the power button for 15 seconds. plug in the charger without the battery in to see if you get a charge light. If you do, replace battery and plug in charger and power on laptop. If this does not work, you may have to pull the cmos battery for 15 minutes and try it again.

Acer laptop shut of during power outage .


From the Acer website:

Power Issues or Will not Boot
Solution
If the notebook does not power on:

Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.

If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a ‘power reset' of the notebook.
  1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
  2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
  3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
  4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
  5. Normally power on the notebook.
  6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
  7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
    If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.
Also, depending on whether your power went down "clean" (quick and stayed off), or went down and quickly came back on and off many times. Or when it came back on "clean" (came back on quick and stayed on), or it came on then off many times, your power supply may have been damaged from the power surges Are you having any problems with any other appliances?

It could be one of three things. It could be a bad battery, a bad ac adapter, or the recharging circuitry could be bad. I would try pulling the battery out, and see if the laptop will startup and run strictly off of the ac adapter. If that does not work, you have a bad ac adapter. If that works, and the battery has any charge left, try running it strictly on the battery. If it doesnt work, you have a bad battery. If it does work, the circuitry is bad and you will probably need new motherboard. One other thing you can check is where the ac adapter and battery plug into the laptop, and make sure there is no corrosion that could be causing a short.
