Could be a number of things. a bad solder point for the dc jack on your main board, a fried power supply. or even blown capacitors on the main board. UI would suggest replaceing the ac adapter first. if that doesnt work. you will need to open up the machine and do some testing. I have seen the same problem as a result of a faulty solder point on a dc jack of a toshiba satellite l35a. they use the same jack so could be the same problem. if you want it looked at let me know.

Toshiba Tecra M3 will not boot, no video, pwr + hdd light on


If not beeps you didn't hear then it's your Motherboard. But, there other problems aside on it.
Laptop maybe have a problem with Power Connection, see to it that your Laptop Power Adapter is supply exact voltage to your Laptop, low voltage power also may cause not to give power your laptop sufficient, if it is does.
And if none of this then it's your Motherboard.
Hope this tip might help you.
Good luck!

Toshiba plug-in ac adapter LCDlight flashing and wont boot up


It may be that you need a new, (Or good condition used), motherboard. You may not.

The problem could be the DC Power Jack. The DC Power Jack is small, and the body is made of plastic. Sometimes there is a metal shell around the plastic body. (The jack is a rectangular shape, and is just a little larger, than the outside portion of that AC adapter plug!)

This is an example of a DC Power jack for a Toshiba Satellite a215-s5807,
http://www.notebookworks.net/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=NBW52-0133

As you know there is a metal pin in the center, and at the back of the round hole, there are flat metal contacts.

Let me explain the construction of a DC Power Jack, and how it's mounted to a motherboard. This all has relevance to the solution.

Your laptop uses DC electricity. (The AC adapter converts AC to DC. Your laptop battery, and a flashlight battery, are examples of stored DC electricity)

DC uses a Positive connection, and a Negative connection. The metal pin in the center is Positive. The flat metal strips at the back are Negative.

That laptop DC Power Jack has metal prongs, that come out of the plastic body. One prong, (Or pin), connects to the Positive metal round pin, in the center of the jack.
There may be one, or two prongs, (Or pins), that come out of the plastic body, and connect to the Negative side of the jack. (Flat metal strips)
These prongs go down through holes in the motherboard, and are soldered on.

With the AC adapter plugged in, an accidental bump on the plug itself, could break the body of the jack, or break solder joints that hold the jack to the motherboard.

AC adapter removed, and battery removed. Use a NON-metallic object, and see if you can make the center pin of the jack move. See if the entire jack itself seems to move.
A.If the center pin moves, you have a broken DC Power Jack.
B.If the entire jack moves, you have cracked solder joints. (Broken)

Replacement of the DC Power Jack for A.
Re-solder the solder joint/s for B.

Cost of replacing a jack at a reputable computer repair shop? $90 to $150
Cost of re-soldering solder joints? $50 to $90
Cost of replacing the motherboard?
$250 on up.

If you are a skilled person with the correct tools, it is feasible for you to replace the jack, or re-solder the solder joints.
It is also feasible that you yourself, could replace the motherboard.

Some laptops have a poor motherboard design, for where the DC Power Jack is mounted to the motherboard.

Crude explanation would be, that the main body of the motherboard is a 1 foot square. Then a 2 inch square comes out of the side of the main body.
The DC Power Jack is mounted to that 2 inch square. From accidental bumping, OR just normal usage of inserting, and removing the AC adapter plug, this 2 inch square can crack away from the main body.
This, of course would require a motherboard replacement.

Disassembly instructions for a Satellite A200 and A205 Series laptops. Very close to the A215 Series,
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/laptop-disassembly-1.htm

(Don't forget to buy, and use a cheap ESD wrist strap, to prevent static shock to the delicate hardware components, inside your laptop. Average cost is $7)

Problems with power switch on p25 s5236


If it's not coming on, even with a new power adapter, it's likely dead. Very unlikely but, have you tried a new battery aswell?

Toshiba 490xcdt


Are you sure you used the charger with the exact specifications?

I once encountered a problem like this... try removing the battery and replacing it after some 5-10 minutes. It worked for me.
If it doesn't, try whether it would work only on main AC with no battery inside what-so-ever. Then - try with it.

Oh, and no, laptops - to my knowledge - do not have fuses... at least those 4-5 I opened didn't.

Hope this helps. I'll post up if anything else comes to mind...

Toshibas are dieing on me.


How about if you boot with just the battery in? Does the battery charge? Possible solution include: remove and replace memory chips to make sure they are seated correctly. Check with a known good power supply. Almost sounds like a motherboard issue to me. Plenty of laptop problems are related to bad solder joints on the motherboard, unless you or someone you know can open it up and find a bad joint the only solution is mother board replacement. Try reseating the memory first.
