I think its a honeybee computer. I got it from a friend who had 2 sitting in the garage. I took it home the computer turned on and stayed on for hours, seemed to work fine. Tried to turn it on the next day and it wouldn't power up. I thought it was the jack for power. I tore it apart because i did this because i fixed the jack on a friends computer and i thought it was the same problem. When i took it apart the input jack was as tight as tight can be. It was a project to take apart and hope i can get it back together. Any solutions? Please help. Model # Green 733.

Re: honeybee model #Green733
Check the CMOS battery, as this has been my experience regarding this issue. Most likely, especially if the machine sat for some time, the battery died, and simply needs to be replaced. Very low cost ($4-$5), simply corrected issue, if that is the problem. Very possibly the battery had just a bit of "life" left in it, and once it was done, it was done.

If it's been sitting for 2 years, the carbs are clogged and battery is toast most probably....sometimes these good friend "deals" are not really so good...A thousand things could be wrong w/it and if your not mechanical you can find a private mechanic that will charge much less than a shop, just make sure he is reputable.....you can download a service manual for free at carlsalter.com if you want to get your hands dirty....Good Luck to you friend.....Tim
I know the original post is over 2 years old but I had the same problem. Here's what happened:
8 months after buying my Toshiba A135 the battery began charging only intermittently. It also would not run without the battery. I put up with it for a month then took it back to Best Buy to get it repaired under warranty. They kept it over 2 weeks then gave it back saying it was the battery, which they replaced. One week later I had the same problem again. Back to Best Buy. The guy at the counter said it was probably the battery, they had encountered a lot of that. I said no, explained it, and gave it over to be fixed. 2 weeks later I got it back. They had reset the BIOS, no hardware replacement. I got it home and it was not fixed. I took it back the next day. They kept it 2 more weeks. They replaced the motherboard. I took it home and...you guessed it the same problem on the day I got it home!!! I took it back with one week left on my warranty. I don't remember what they replaced the last time but I think it was the motherboard again. I got it home (2 weeks later) and THE SAME PROBLEM on the day I got it home. So, the lesson there is that Best Buy computer maintenance SUCKS!!
I called Toshiba to try to get them to fix it for free, and out of warranty. After several frustrating minutes of conversation with an accented person who just kept telling me that my warranty was up, I hung up and called back and got an English speaking person. SHE was very helpful, listened to my problem, agreed to give me a one-time fix ticket. They paid for the postage. When I got my computer back it was mostly fixed.
The problem was the module at the back of the computer where the power cord plugs in. It was defective. They replaced it and it worked fine after that, except that when it goes into sleep mode it will not wake up. I fixed that by turning off all the sleep mode options. BTW, a friend of mine with the same computer is now having the same problem.
Same thing happened to me... try this...
1) disconnect all cables
2) turn power on (hold menu button until screen lights up)
3) Press "menu"
4) scroll down to "settings"
5) scroll down to "USB"
6) select "MSC" (default is probably auto detect - which I think there's a conflict with)
7) turn power off (holding the menu button down)
8) connect USB to computer and hopefully start loading files
I bought 2 of the 512 models, one didn't work... so I took it back and had to buy a 2gig model... got home and it didn't work! I tried the above for the new one and at least the computer recognizes it! Everything seems to work fine...for now...
