I had the same problem before. I think Toshiba had a problem, because when I removed the battery and switched it on again it was working.

After that you can put the battery again.

Try that.

Try unplugging AC power lead and then take out the laptops battery, plug the AC power lead back in and try turning it on, see what happens. If the laptop turns on then there is a problem with the battery.

Good luck and let me know how you get on.

Black Screen

It sounds as if the lamp has failed possibly due to a failed cooling fan (the fan should be the first thing to come on). here are the links to the user manual if you need it; and It may be worth trying to uninstall and reinstall the lamp, but usually these fail internally rather than having bad connections etc. It is often obvious when the lamp has gone from a visual inspection. If the lamp has failed, when you replace it, make sure the fan comes on - if not then turn off instantly and investigate further. One other possibility before buying a new lamp, is that the lamp compartment cover may not be properly fitted. This will interrupt the power, so I am assuming there is a microswitch or similar that the cover or the screws that hold it should contact. Possibility is that the cover is badly fitted, or a small piece of the cover has broken, which would normally contact the switch, or the switch is faulty - if you can see the switch then a continuity meter will easily test the switch. Also check that the lamp unit securing screws are properly tightened, they also may stop the TV powering on. Please ask again if you need more help with this, if you are unsure then a photo of the inside of the lamp compartment and the lamp itself may help :)

Unplug the unit, and remove the battery. This will shut the machine off completely. You do not need to let the battery die out. Then power the unit on again. If the issue is gone, consider turning off hibernation ( power options inside control panel)

Toshiba satellite a215-s7422 laptop wil not turn on

It sounds like the motherboard is bad. There is no power being sent to the fan and that means that somewhere in the the mother board is not sending the info.

Toshiba laptop will not turn on, screen is completely black

Don't pay attention to your uncle. I had the same problem. Blue ring, power lights on. Sometimes the laptop would come up after a few minutes and then would freeze. It is a power problem. The AC jack may be broken and, most likely, you need to get the MAX1632A power controller (a 40-48 pin black IC next to the AC jack) resoldered too (get someone qualified to do it, with the right soldering station for surface mount work).
