Battery Not Keeping Charge

I have a Toshiba Satellite A-25 S207 and I have been having problems with it keeping a charge. The battery will last for about 15 to 20 minutes and then the computer will just shut down.

Toshiba satellite l305d-s5934 Won't charge battery dont power On


POWER SUPPLY & BATTERY PROBLEM
If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop and the battery will not keep a charge we bought new battery and AC adapter and still will not charge


since you have a new battery and new charger, you're almost certain to have a connector problem in the laptop... you can GENTLY use a pencil eraser (NOT a pen eraser; has to be one of the soft pink kind) and clean the corrosion/oils off the connector. Also remember that a new battery takes about eighteen hours to take a charge the very first time; they go a lot faster after the first time - good luck

Why wont my Toshiba Satellite A25-S207 turn on? i plug in the charger and there is no light. it doent turn on why??? is it the battery????


First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

Laptop would start up but shut down immediately and the battery w


How long does it stay on for? I had a similar problem. Mine would stay on for 10min then shut down. It ended up being an excessive build-up of dust around the cooling fan. If your problem is similar its worth taking a look at. Good luck, Todd

Want stay charged


Sounds like a bad battery cause its not keeping a charge. Try a new or known good battery and see if it will charge and then unplug the ac adaptor to see if the laptop stays on.

If the laptop stays on with a different battery charged then your old battery is bad. If your laptop doesn't stay on with a known good or new charged battery without the ac adaptor hooked up then its a bad motherboard.

Battery problem


The battery Appears Ok But It Most Likely Either has A Memory Charge With No Current. Or Its Just been Charged Since Birth And Never Used On battery At All. This Will Kill A Battery In 2 Years. If They Are Allowed To Discharge Before Allways keeping The Plug In The Bateries Would last Around 5 years or More. It Sounds Like The Battery Is Old. If You Could Reverse Charge It For A Second You May Be Able To get More Life Out Of It. But if You Don't Know What Your Are Doing The Battery Could Explode. Don't Try ,It If Have never Performed This Task Before. You can Get Batteries On Ebay Really Cheap Compared To the Stores. Hope This Helps
