Toshiba Satellite 1135-S125 front LED indicators gone weird

Hi, Recently, my Toshiba laptop was plugged in to AC power, without the battery installed, when we had a brief power outage. When my daughter turned the computer back on, the on-off and battery LED indicators (which were green) turned amber. The battery indicator was lit, even though the battery was not installed. And the CD-ROM indicator light remains lit all the time, even when there is no disc in the drive. Did something get fried when the power outage happened? Is there some setting I can change that can return the LEDs to normal? Or is there a board that needs to be replaced? It's not a critical problem - the laptop still works fine and the strange operation of the LEDs doesn't seem to interfere with anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks for the information - I will try that solution. And your English is better than most native English-speakers I know. :-)

    Hi,

    I tried both suggestions, but neither one seemed to work. Everything else seems to work fine, and I'm tempted to simply ignore the issue. But I'm still worried that it's one symptom of a larger problem. But bogdan and adi_techmax, both your suggestions were well thought-out and I had not considered them, so at least I learned some things.

As you said that the Green light turned Amber, and the battery indicator was on, i would recommend that you Power Flea your laptop i.e. do nopt connect the battery/adapter to your laptop and keep on pressing the Power switch for almost 10-25 secs. This is because of some static charge built up. Try it and lemme know...

Hi The strange operation of those LED's is most probably an error mode indicator. If a laptop fails to power on corectly it will use those LED's, lighting in a specific pattern to signal the error. That's an example. In your case something was damaged in some way because the error code indicator is still acting like there is an error. You may try to reset the BIOS to factory defaults (small chances that this will work) and leave the laptop unpowered for about 1 day. If the problem is still there you will need to have it fixed in a service center. By comparing the LED lighting pattern with information from the Toshiba service catalogs they will be able to tell you what kind of error had happen for wich the LED's to light in this manner. Sorry for my bad english, I live in a non-english speaking country. Good luck and don't forget to rate any answer received from this site.

I can't get my dell inspiron to power on. I will charge the battery using the wall charger but will not come on. What can I try?


Try this if will help.

Remove battery and unplug the ac adapter from laptop.

Without the power sources hold down the power button for 10 seconds.

Check the ac adapter from wall power socket if ac adapter LED is ON.

Plug back in the ac adapter to laptop then check the LED from the ac adapter if it stayed on.

If ac adapter LED turned off right after you plug in the ac adapter to laptop then you need to replace the ac adapter, motherboard and power daughter board.

Hold down the D key then Press Power Button once. Check if color display will appear in the screen.

if the ac adapter stays on you and still no power indicator from the laptop you need to replace motherboard and power daughter board.

Hope this helps.

Is the AC Power adapter the original adapter of the laptop? If it is, try to drain the battery and charge it for 8-12 hours without using or opening the laptop just charge it. After charging, remove the power adapter as you open your laptop. Make this way a habbit of using and charging your laptop to make the charging and battery life last long.

My TOSHIBA MINI NB205-n313/9 10.1 inch net book will not turn on


Hi,
The laptop is not turning on?

Remove the battery and try boot the machine on AC power only. If the computer starts up turn it back off, reinsert the battery and try to boot the computer again.
If it still won't boot with the battery inserted then i suggest you send or take the computer back as there is a hardware problem.


Regards.
