Take the power adaptor to a GeekSquad, they can use a voltimeter to test and see if it's putting out the correct voltage. Otherwise the DC Jack(Where the adaptor plugs in) may have had stress and cracked off the motherboard, meaning it would need service center repair.

Power went out a few days ago. When it came back on my phone won't work. Says it is out of range. I have unplugged, plugged back in; used a different plug in. Nothing is working.


If you are talking about your smart phone, then it is probably set to use WI-FI for calling and your WI-FI router powered off during the power failure. Find your router and turn it on or unplug it from the wall and plug it back in. Within a few minutes you should be working again. Otherwise, you will have to call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) for help.

Jumper location for toshiba satellite L850


From memory, there is no jumper. Look for bare solder pads near the bios battery... usually marked 'RST' or 'FRST' or similar. There will be a few pairs of pads grouped, you only need to short out the RST ones (a pair) Its a bit of a juggling act, but short them out during the process of applying power to the laptop. so... short out, maintain the short, plug in power, power up laptop, maintaining short for about 3 seconds..... remove power, restart.

Try TOTALLY unplugging the printer. Power AND input cables. Reboot the computer and reconnect the printer. Some printers hold errors until all sources of power and communications have been cleared.

Charging issues with a toshiba A215


Check the power adapter with a multi-meter, the voltage of the power plug that plugs into the power socket on the laptop should be slight higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter.
If it is faulty, there are replacement power supplies available on the Internet or at your friendly computer shop.
If the adapter is OK then the power socket on the laptop is faulty or this socket has a dry solder joint connection on the motherboard.
You can test this by wriggling the power plug when it is connected to the laptop, if the charge LED flickers and if you hold this plug in a certain position the charge LED stays on without flickering, then the power socket is faulty.
This can be repaired, but requires the laptop to be completely
disassembled. I suggest you get a quote first.

Hi,

certain laptops rely on a battery being present.
Or a battery that holds charge.
i,d suggest refering to the user manual, or go on-line to the manufacturers website.
the laptop may be in hibernation/sleep mode. or require a hard reset.

No power


In my searching for another problem, I read a lot of postings about Toshiba laptop computers and faulty power plugs (at the spot where you plug in your AC adapter into the computer). It seems to be some kind of universal problem with Toshiba and I think there was even a recall a while back because of this. I do not know if this is your problem, but it certainly sounds similar.
