Question about Toshiba Satellite M115-S1061 Notebook
I have had the lap top for two or three years. In that time, I have had many issues with the charging pin...the adaptor has to be wiggled and jiggled to get any charging at all. Well last night, the pin got completely pushed in and I was unable to charge the laptop. My husband opened the case, repositioned the pin and I was able to charge the battery.
HOWEVER, now it won't turn on at all. The lights indicating that the ac adapter was plugged in, and the light indicating that it was charging came on. The charging light did change from orange to green, indicating that the battery was fully charged. However, pressing the power button does nothing. All of the screws are in place and properly screwed in and we touched NOTHING else when we opened the case. Please, please help.
Which pin did your husband reposition, I assume it was the one inside the laptop. He may not have connected the power switch cable back in properly when he rebuilt the laptop. Ask him to carefully check all the connections by opening the case again. These sort of repairs are normally carried out by experienced tech engineers. Some dc connectors (the bit that the power supply plugs into) have to be resoldered to work correctly or be replaced completely. The fact that you were able to charge the battery means little at this stage I'm afraid. Let me know if you need more help.

Well you shorted out the power switch from a guess im just guessing though you may have also ruined the charge port buy opening it up you should have let a tech guy fix it try going and getting a new charge port with a new charger that works with it and BEFORE you do try my first suggestion try leaving the battery out for a night or 2.
