Try running it without the battery and see if it does the same. Sometimes a bad power supply will cause a short to develop in the battery. If it stops shutting down without the battery the you'll need a new battery.

Icons wiggle


Your computer screen or monitor may have wiggling images when it is too close to electronic interference, such as a power supply, cell phone, non-shielded speakers, a fan or electric motor.

Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

Good luck.

It seems like im having some issue with my syncmaster2493 monitor. it will black out and once i wiggle the power cord it will come back on. any help will be apprecaited


Hello,


Your power supply board is failing and when you wiggle the cord it is turning it on and off until it finally starts up. There are parts called capacitors that start failing and it will cause intermittent power issues such as slow to show picture, flashing power button, wavy or flashing picture. The board can be repaired and the monitor will be as good as new. Here is a picture of the power supply with the parts circled that need to be replaced.

I took my Acer laptop in to be fixed. I had been wiggling my power cord for weeks in order to get a good power connection until finally no amout of wiggling would produce a good connection. The computer...


Hi there,

It's a very strong bet that your DC Power Jack (the hole the cord plugs into) has finally broken loose enough that it can't power the laptop. The jack is soldered to the motherboard. The repair shop probably does not have anyone skilled enough to desolder the jack and resolder a new one on. The part itself is only about $5 but you have to disassemble the laptop and remove the motherboard to properly repair it.

I send all such repairs for my customers to any one of several vendors on eBay who usually do the repair for around $50. I'm posting a link below of some choices for you. Pick a company with a high % Feedback rating and you should be just fine. You buy the Auction, send in the laptop and they usually guarantee your money back if they can't fix it.

Monitor will come on but then will click off and on


Sounds like a bad connection on the inside of the power cord socket on the back of the monitor. If you feel confident enough to take the back off just remove the power cord, remove the back and then wiggle the pins inside the socket 1 at a time and look in the back of the socket at the same time to see if the wires are loose on the pins, or if the wires from the pins are loose on the circuit board. May just need resoldering. If you can find out what it is it could save you money getting it repaired, unless you can do it yourself.

Will not power up for more than 1 second. Without battery installed, will not power up at all


Sounds like battery is dead. Have you been having problems with power cord? When you plug in power cord with battery installed you should see a charging light. Maybe wiggle coord and see if you get some power. Toshiba, In my opinion is a great computer, but they do have a poorly designed power plug. They are forever being broken from the boards. I hope this helps and if it is a bad power socket, you can get them from Ebay for about $5. Good luck and have good day.

In this order: 1) Turn off all PCs and printers connected to the router. 2) Unplug your router's power cord. 3) Unplug your modem's power cord. 4) Wait for at least 2-3 minutes. 5) Connect the modem's power cord and wait for at least 2-3 minutes. 6) Connect the router's power cord wait for at least 2-3 minutes. 7) Turn on each PC separately and wait until it is completely finished booting before turning on the next PC.
