This flashing LED usually means only two things, both are quite harmless:

1. Some laptops will flash the power LED when battery is charging. If this is the case, it should stop when battery is fully charged. This can be presumed if the laptop starts normally while LED flashes. If not, suspect step 2 below:

2. Your laptop is either "asleep" (suspended) or in "hibernation" mode.It does this if left for a long time with no activity/input from you. You must simply "wake the laptop up" now:

Look for a symbol on keyboard for "sleeping" (like a half moon with zzzz) and press that key WITH whatever color coded key matches the symbol color (usually "FN" key). If there is no suchkey, press the space bar and hold it down a few seconds.

Then wait. Can take 60 seconds to "wake up" on slower processors.

If this does not work, press AND hold the POWER button for 10 seconds. Then wait 60 seconds and press power key again, briefly, to start laptop normally.

Pressing and holding the power button 6-10 seconds forces a complete system shutdown.

If this happens often, something may be wrong with APM or ACPI settings/driver. You can go to start menu/settings/control panels/power management and adjust settings (or disable sleep/suspend and hibernation if all else fails to resolve situation)

good luck.

I have a Toshiba Qosmio X870-BT3G23 and it will not turn on when i plug it in the charger light is red instead of normally yellow


Consider a new battery. How old is it? A battery has a Cycle Life, when it's reached it's time to replace it. If so, always replace with a genuine replacement, some aftermarket batteries don't work well at best, and COULD be a Fire hazard at worst. You could try a different Cord/Charger with the EXACT same power specs as the original.

Have you tried another Cord with the EXACT same power specs? Remove the battery. Has the cord/charger/transformer been damaged? Has the AC jack been damaged? Due to pulling on the cord while plugged in? At the AC jack "wiggle" the plug a bit to see if the plug and AC jack are making a good connection or Loose. Sounds like a loose AC connection.

remove the battery and see if it works fine, use only the power supply. If it works the problem is the battery if not you need to test your power supply. That's the easier way

The power supply is failing and cannot provide the necessary power to charge and run the computer. You'll need to search the internet for a replacement power supply. You can potentially damage the computer if you continue to try to operate it like this.
