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.

WHAT DOES BLINKING BATTERY INDICATOR LIGHT MEAN ON A TOSHIBA SATELLITE LAPTOP P25-S5093

My toshiba satellite series a135-s4656 laptop stopped charging for over two weeks now. Though the adapter (power pack) is functional. Please what do i do (cos the system has been down since)?


How do you know the ac adapter is working? Just because the light on the ac adapter is on doesn't mean it's working. Does it work with the ac adapter plugged in? Just not charging the battery. If in the first case just buy a new ac adapter and see if it works, most are affordable some not so much. If the battery isn't charging then you will have to shop for a new battery. If both of those are good then you have either a bad ac plug on your laptop, or motherboard issues. Hope this helps, if you have more questions just reply and I will try to help.

Confuse the function of the laptop adapter Toshiba satellite pro


The AC Adapter has to be used which is compatible with the particular model of the Notebook. You can refer the User Manual came with the Notebook to know the exact model number of the AC Adapter. To confirm whether the AC Adapter is working or not you can check the LED light of the AC Adapter, if the LED is glowing then it is working fine.

The function of the AC Adapter is to charge the Battery of the Notebook.

You can also use the Notebook by connecting the AC Adapter while it is charging or when it is fully charged.

When i plug in a/c power adapter to my toshiba laptop it sparks


Sounds like your ac port is broken. If you can not run it off ac or battery this would be why. There is no current flowing to the motherboard. Is the ACjack loose?. If so you need your ac jack repair. A local repair shop can do this. Unless the system is still in warranty. You should be able to call support and tell them that your notebook is not working due to a malfunction ac port.

I hope this helps you.

You may have to use the battery and the ac adapter at the same time. it could be that your battery is not yet charged that's why its not working.

if you want to know if there's something wrong with one of the components of your system..you can try this...

turn your computer on with just the ac adapter plugged in - if working then try both ac adapter and battery.

if your system will not turn on with just the ac adapter plugged in, it could be there's something wrong with the ac adapter or with the motherboard of the system

Toshiba Portege 7140CT battery problem


Your ac adapter may be the problem. Is the adapter in good condition. Try using your friends ac adapter since you have the same model laptop. If it charges up your battery and the light stays on your adapter is at fault. Then replace your adapter or the part of it that is at fault. It could be the plug or base. If that does not solve your problem check your dc port on the laptop itself. Shut it down. On the back of your laptop where you plug in the ac adapter there is a pin. Does the pin move? If it does then you have another problem. The port may need replacing which most repair shops don't do. They usually replace the main board which can be costly. Hopefully that's not the problem. Let me know if either of these are not the case then we can go from there. Hope this solves your problem
