Question about Toshiba Satellite R25-S3503 Tablet PC

1 Answer

AC Port shorting out

Hello. For about the last three months, the power cord on my laptop had to be in the exact right spot to supply power to my laptop. Here recently it seems to have shorted out completely because no matter which way the cord is put it doesn't work. I know the power cord works because it will charge my sister's laptop but not mine. So I'm down to the actual AC port. I'm sure I have to replace it but does anyone on here know if it CAN be replaced and a ballpark figure to get it fixed. I need it for school. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    Same problem here... did you ever get it fixed?

    First my battery started running out of juice at shorter intervals. Then I noticed the power indicator lights flickering and eventually did not turn on. Now my battery is out of charge and I can not work off of wall power. I thought possibly that something came loose, so I opened it up but everything looked connected, not even dusty. Mine is 2 years old.

    Same problem, I took the power cord and adapter to Radio Shack. They put a voltage meter or something on it and said the adapter was dead. I have ordered a new adapter and will post here when I find out.

That definatly sounds like you need to replace the jack for sure....I have fixed two toshiba's with the same problem myself. To get it done in the store you are probably looking at $150-300. Least that is what it was here. So i decided to buy the part i needed off ebay, take the laptops apart and resolder the jack on.

My android m729 tablet will not charge. I have


Trying different cords was one of the right things to try, but what are you plugging the cord into? Many laptops don't supply enough current to charge this device. You need a charger that can supply around 2 amps. Many wall plug-in power supplies ar also too low of an output to fully charge your tablet.

If you are sure that your power supply puts out 2 amps (or more) then it's my sad duty to tell you that the battery likely bit the dust. These are cheaply maid in China with the lowest quality parts, and it's all too common for then to die after just a short time.

Like I said, Try a different power supply, and f it's not that.... I am sorry.

You Power Cord must be bad. If you cannot get on the laptop by using just the power cord, then the power cord is bad and needs to be replaced. Also it sounds like you've been operating off your battery since the power cord is bad, but now the battery is dead because the bad power cord was not charging it.

Get a new AC Adapter and Power Cord. Or it could be that the pin where you plug the power cord into the table is damaged or broken.

My toshiba r10 laptop wont turn on the green power light to the front is on but the yellow battery light only comes onn when i plug in the power cord to it and it only stays about 2 seconds


Ok here's what you will do

1) Unplug the notebook from the ac adapter (charger power cord)

2) Take off the battery pack on the notebook

3) Once the ac adapter and battery is off the notebook, hold down the power button for 15 seconds

4) After 15 seconds, let go of the power button

5) Now plug in the AC ADAPTER (OR CHARGER POWER CORD) ONLY (DO NOT PUT BACK THE BATTERY PACK)

6) Now press the power button once.

7) If the unit boots, the unit suffered a slight surge

8) If the unit does not boot and remains dead, the unit suffered a severe surge and may be burned out and needs replacing

I hope this helps and let me know how it goes afterwards

Battery problems Tc 1100


When the Batt is inserted and you are on AC power do you have a lit charge light? It's the one in the center of the three at the lower right when you are in landscape mode.
If your batt is at "end of mission" (**** up) then it's ability to hold and take a charge may be very limited. Calibrating the batt might help. You will need the toaster style charger.
If this is the issue, then the charge light may only stay on for a few seconds at a time when you first attach AC power, so be watching.
I could recommend a new batt (e-bay) if thats your only trouble. Nothing lasts forever. I'm in Missouri and will calibrate your batt if you want to mark it and ship it. Let me know.

Loose ac power port


A very common laptop problem, but not always easy to rectify. Usually, the smallish receiver portion is fastened onto the mobo which means a total or near-total disassembly of the laptop. The part is rather inexpensive, but the labor to change it is not.

Thinkpad does not respond - bizzare!


Hi, Based on your post/description that it was not the laptop that was dropped and that all the connections are snugly fitted to where they should be, the dropping of the moused caused the laptop to be dead, then it is likely that the +5VDC of the mouse cable has shorted to the ground wire. The short is reflected towards inside the motherboard of your laptop. This +5VDC is common to all the USB ports, PS2 ports, and many other parts of the laptop. The short would open up a fuse somewhere inside. I can only surmise that the power supply is involved. You may need to check that the powersupply/AC adaptor (if present) is giving juice to your laptop with the use of a VOM, since as I understand it, simply plugging in your laptop to the mains would lit an indicator that ACpower is available. Normally a surface mounted fuse is on the motherboard right after the jack where the AC adaptor plug comes in and right before a reverse protection diode. If you are uncomfortable opening your unit and would not be in a position to do component level repair, you are probably better off seeking the services of a qualified service professional. Hope this give you and idea. Good luck and kind regards.
