Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S359 Notebook
About a year ago I started having problems with the AC adapter jack being fincky so the power source on the laptop would frequently switch from battery power to the adapter. I bought a new adapter and that fixed the problem until about 3 months ago. The laptop stopped working with the battery in and will only run off the adapter power. It has seemed like the pin in the jack or jack itself was loose so the adapter only worked if it was plugged in and had a significant amount of pressure put on it (usually in a rather extreme angle). I opened it up and found that the jack wasn't secured to anything and it didn't look like it was ever secured to anything significant, if at all, so I don't think the components of the jack are the problem. Within the last week or so it's become worse and started to get very warm very fast (so now I'm thinking that the power issue is leading to a fan issue) to the point where it has turned itself off and hasn't wanted to turn back on for about 2 days. I noticed several other people with Toshiba laptops commenting on similar issues (fan getting really dusty really quickly and the wiggling jack) but none specifically with the M45-S359 model. If anyone has repaired this successfully before or has any thoughts they would be very appreciated! Thanks in advance.
Well the adapter for toshiba laptop is weak, and the most common method is to use a multimeter with the electroprobes connect to the anode and cathode.if it is normal, the pointer will fix in a short time.
