Replacing the DC Power Jack on this model of Toshiba Satellite A300 series, is SWEET!

{The Toshiba Satellite A305-S6857 Notebook PC, is part of the Toshiba Satellite A300 series of Notebook PC's}

No de-soldering, or soldering is needed.
The DC Power Jack is a DC Power Jack Harness.

The DC Power Jack is connected to a cable (Wires) that end in a connector, and the connector plugs into the motherboard.

To repair the problem you just replace the power jack harness.

A) Guidance given with instructions, and a pictorial guide, (Click on each photo to enlarge),

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-A305/laptop-disassembly-process-1.htm

The above is Page 1.
To go to Page 2, and Page 3 ,click on the white page number at the top, or bottom of the page.
{Page 1::Page2::Page 3::Find another model }

Page 2, Step 17 shows you the DC Power Jack Harness, and where it connects on the motherboard. (Small white rectangular connector)


B) This is a link to a free Service Manual for the Toshiba Satellite A300 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

Go down to the 11th line. The one that starts with Satellite A10.
Scroll across, and click on > A300

This is a PDF file.
Allow up to 30 seconds after you click on the file name A300, for the first page to come up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.


C) Remove ALL power to the laptop before you begin.
Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery

D) Observe Anti-Static Precautions

It is Advised to buy and wear an ESD wrist strap, and connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.

{For one example I connect the alligator clip to the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case}

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

Using an ESD wrist strap, and connecting to a good ground source, will relieve your body of Static, and help to ensure your laptop is safe from Static shock.


E) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Mark each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.

There may be as many as 60 screws, and 12 different types.
Do NOT mix them up!

If no multi-compartment container is available, you can substitute with a clean egg carton.
Mark each egg holder.


F) Make a record as you disassemble. It's nice to have a record you can go back to in case you are interrupted, and to have a record that YOU understand.

Make notes and drawings, use a camera, or video cam if available.
{Use Good lighting}

My A305-S6857 freeze every time when I tried to login. I cannot access to my desktop.


Try doing a startup repair by pressing F8 repeatedly on startup. On the options menu, choose 'repair my computer'. If this isn't successful you can try running your antivirus software in safe mode to check for any infections. Press F8 as before and choose safe mode. If this works, you can also check your event viewer to see if there are any system errors recorded: control panel>system and security>administrative tools>event viewer. Expand the critical and error menus under 'summary of administrative events' You can double click on an event for further detail and the event ID which may help you troubleshoot the problem further.

It works good on battery but when AC adaptor is plug in the laptop cuts out and restart by itself.


Problem description: The laptop shuts off when AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.
Possible cause: 1. Power adapter failure.
2. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution: First of all, test the power adapter. Make sure the adapter outputs correct voltage. It's possible that the output voltage is not correct and the laptop shuts down to prevent the damage. Test your laptop with another known good power adapter.
Toshiba Satellite A305 AC Adapter
If the problem still exists, even after replacing the adapter, most likely it's the motherboard failure. Replace the motherboard.
