Hello,

The answer is no. You have to take the whole laptop apart including the keyboard in order to conveniently replace the power jack. If you don't take the whole laptop apart, there won't be enough space the replace the power jack.

Remove the internal battery pack from your laptop. Flip the laptop over and locate the release button for the battery pack. Hold the button in to slide the battery pack free. It is important that you remove the internal battery pack as well as unplug the power cord from the wall outlet to prevent risk of shock while working inside the laptop.
Unscrew all of the screws on the underside of your laptop. There should be one at each corner and then one or two screws that hold the hard drive cover in place, like wise that of the memory (RAM). Once the screws are removed, take out your computer's hard drive and memory (RAM).

Locate the two screws at the back of the computer that hold the laptop screen's hinges in place. Once these two screws are removed, gently pull up on the screen until you clear the silver pegs from the holes in the laptop's body. Two wires lead from the screen into the computer, so ensure you do not pull so hard that you disconnect them. Carefully set the laptop screen aside so it does not get damaged while you work inside the computer.
Separate the two halves of the laptop's body to expose the computer's internal components. Flip the keyboard on its face, making sure not to disconnect the keyboard's connector. Underneath the keyboard will be a metal plate that covers the computer's motherboard. Unscrew the screws that hold this plate in place and set it aside.

Locate the DC jack for the laptop. Using your tweezers, remove the old DC jack. Identify the slot in the motherboard that the old DC jack came out of. If the DC jack was loose before you removed it, there will be a small slot at the base of the opening in the back of the computer that the DC jack pops into. Using the tweezers again, slide the new DC jack into this slot until you hear a clicking sound. To hold it in place you can solder the new jack to the motherboard, or simply superglue it in place. Don't use too much superglue or you will risk losing the ability for the jack to conduct electricity.
I wish you good luck as your replace your laptop power jack.

Take care.

Hi There,

Toshiba does not publish Service Guides for us lowly ones of the General Population. You can go to the link below and get as far as removing the wireless card, which may or may not expose the jack for replacement.

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a215/remove-wireless-card.htm

After that it's going to be a matter of carefully removing what you have to to get to the jack. Other similar laptop guides at irisvista may hold the key for you. I've used that method and found that using the guide for the model just before or after got me close enough to the order of disassembly I could get the job done.

Be careful, take your time, amd make a grid of what goes where on paper and you should be able to get the job done.

Regards,

Selk

Strewth M8 you have a long way to go on this one. I would suggest you dont touch it at all. You have completely open the whole computer to get to it. I would suggest you go to a dealer and save some money.

Can not be turned on


We will see if the problem is due to the static charge accumulated on the laptop. Disconnect the power cable from the laptop and also take out the battery. Also, disconnect all the external devices attached to the laptop e.g. external mouse, keyboard, printer. Now keep on holding down the power button on the laptop for the next 30 seconds. Put the battery back and plug the power cable. Now try turning on the laptop and let me know if it works. Thanks!

Keyboard


First try to check that the keyboard connection to the motherboard is still solid & that the key is depressing as it should. If all is connected there may be a hardware fault on the keyboard - if so I can get you a price on a replacement.
