Question about Toshiba Satellite A75-S226 Notebook
I have a Toshiba Satellite A30. It works fine running off a charged battery but when I plug the power adapter in, the pack on the adapter starts beeping and won't charge. If I try to plug it in to the back of the laptop with the power switched on already it starts to spark. Yes, I have a problem!!! I thought it might have been the power jack so I had that replaced and it is doing exactly the same thing. I've been told that I need a new motherboard but I don't want to pay $1200 for a new one. Any suggestions as to what it could be? Thanks
The problem is most likely (85% sure) with the DC Jack itself, that is one of the rarer issues with it. Since it is a 2-state switch, the likelihood of both circuits closing is my guess. And also the cheapest repair. I have been completely through the A75 without a schematic, and have to remember it's quirks in design.
