Question about Toshiba Satellite M205-S4806 Notebook

1 Answer

Hi, I currently own a M205 Satellite Laptop. It was bought around 30 months back. Recently i am facing charging problems. The charger when plugged into the laptop at a particular angle charges the laptop. It seems to be a case of loose contact of the charger with the laptop. Please do let me know what can be done to fix the problem. Do i need another charger to be got in or the laptop needs to be fixed. Thanks and Regards, Anu

Lenovo Z560 laptop battery charge drops from 50% down to 7% suddenly. And after that, i need to charge the laptop where it gets charged till 99% only. What is the problem i am facing now?. I purchased the...

A sudden drop from 50% to 7% means that the battery is faulty, it is simply a case where it is not holding any charge. I would suggest you contact the seller and check if the battery is under warranty. Hope this helps and good luck.Any question please feel free to ask.

Battery won't charge. It had been unused for several months and now it has fully discharged it won't re charge. Help?

I assume the battery and the AC charger were working fine before?
I am also going to assume that the battery is not leaking or cracked (if any these two is true, you definetely need a new battery; don't even try to put it back on your laptop, since you can damage it)

You can try the following:

1) Unplug the AC charger from your laptop and remove the battery. Check that the battery contacts (both on the battery and on the laptop) are clean and shiny. If they are not, clean them up with a pencil eraser. Replace the battery back inside the laptop, plug the AC charger, and try again

2) Plug in the AC charger and enter the BIOS. One of the options should be "check battery" or "learn battery". If you have this option, choose it and let run overnight (can take several hours to complete). This test will check the charge-discharge cycle of the battery. It will also tell you what is the capacity of your battery in mAh (milliampers per hour). Normally, laptop batteries are around 3,000-4,000 mAh. If your number is much smaller, then your battery may have a shortcircuit that prevents it from fully charging.

2) If you don't have the above option in your BIOS or you get a results indicating that your battery has less than 2,000 mAh, you may need to replace the battery. You can find OEM replacement batteries that specifically fit your laptop on ebay for around $30-$60

Can't charge battery

Remove the battery and try if the PC turn on connecting to direct currrent.
If it turn on (whitout battery), the issue should be a connector problem or a damaged internal recargher.

Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Charger problem

Get another laptop.

The A135 is a lemon.

Problem is either with the dc jack on the board or more than likely the motherboard is damaged.

I've repaired a number of A135's and 95% of the time motherboard had to be replaced.

Sorry for the bad news, but I hope this helps.

It isnt charging

If the power connection is loose on the motherboard then you will either need to get the connector replaced (Many places advertize replacing the jack for around $100) or replace the motherboard. (Also around $100)
