When the power adaptor is connected to toshiba tecra T9000 notebook there is little little spark from the power jack

There is probably a small crack on the cord that goes from the adapter to the computer. I had a similar problem with old laptop my cat had bitten the cord, and bit through part of the wire. I replaced the connection and got rid of the spark.

My hp pavilion dv6-2117ax laptop won't power up (no power light on where adaptor meets laptop). Replaced power adaptor / charger and laptop powered up and operated for a day and then next day woul

The laptop probably isn't charging. Could be a bad d/c connector on the laptop or the battery is bad. Remove the battery and plug in the a/c adapter and see if it powers on. Wiggle the a/c plug in gently while pressing the power button on the laptop. It powers on and off briefly then I'd say it's the d/c jack on the laptop, bad sodder joint.

The black outer part on my power adaptor on the connector part that goes into the laptop has started to split- exposing the wire underneath. Is it worth getting this fixed or am I better off just buying a...

Hi Nicole. It's better to just have the cable repaired. Take the adapter to the nearest TV repair shop or computer repair shop and ask them to replace the jack. This shouldn't be expensive, about $10, depending on where you live. Adapters go from $30 to 50, so it's not worth the investment especially if your adapter is working just fine.

There are 2 possible problems with your notebook.

1) Adaptor/Charger problem. (common)
2) Notebook power problem. (slight)

To check if there is a problem with your charger.

a) Plug in charger to any wall socket.
b) Get a small solid wire (prefferably insulated).
c) insert one end of the wire to the positive point of the adapter or the inner side of adapter.
d) scratch the outer side of the adapter using the other end of the wire to check for sparks. a spark is highly visible on a 12v power.
e) if no spark is created, then there could have been a problem with your charger.

Hope this helps.

AC Adapter is beeping

the best would be ebay. type in your model number and you should find a compatible version. i dont recommend the universals, they dont show up on certain computers correctly such as dells. most charges retail on ebay for about 16 bucks. if you want it fast. get it overnighted. still will be cheaper than anything you buy in the store..

heres a link

good luck!

How to fix Power Adapter

Does your adaptor geting warmer when plugged to power outlet for some time (minutes)?

If not, than there are two possible solutions:
First (the easiest) thing is to check if both wires are not cut or short (one that you connect to power outlet, and the other one you connect to your laptop). You'll need some multimer to do this.
Most possible is that you'll need to open the power adaptor to do these checks.

Second thing is to locate and check the Fuse. Most of the adaptors have a Fuse inside.

If the fuse is OK, the wires are also OK, and the adaptor is getting warmer (or not), than you should buy a new power adaptor.
My experiance sais, not to belive much to repaired laptop adaptors (you don;t say what laptop you have).
Also, do not ask for substitute (cheap) adaptor!
Find an original one!
Most important is the following:

Please note that you should't try to do these checks, if you don't feel you are enough qualified. You should ask some friend of your's or some service. It should't cost you much !

Also, if you try to do this by yourself, be EXTREMELY carefull when adaptor is open. DO NOT PLUG it to power outled !!!
You might be killed !!!
