Question about Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 Notebook

1 Answer

I think its my battery

I use my computer and randomly it will have the battery drain while plugged in. It says on the computer that it is plugged in but it is not charging the battery. If i turn the computer off and take the battery out and put it back in, it works fine. This has been happening more frequently. Does this mean I need a new battery???

It might be the battery or battery contacts, but sounds more like a problem with the a/c adapter cord being bad at the connector that goes into the back of the pc. Or, the power jack on the back of the pc may be loose, or damaged.

I'm guess here that you have had the unit for some time? If you leave it plugged in all the time you can actually damage the batteries. Any battery powered (rechargable) device should have the batteries drained periodically to condition them to last longer. My guess is the battery is not holding a charge properly and giving spikes. You can take to battery store and have it checked or if you have a ohm meter you can check for yourself.

Battery status incorrect


This recalibrate's the battery.

Charge the battery completely. Monitor the battery indicator, which is usually found that the bottom of your computer screen, to check if the battery is already fully charged.

Plug off the power adapter and use the laptop until the battery is completely drained. To drain the battery faster, run several programs at once and keep the contrast of your screen to its highest levels. Turn off all power-saving features as well. Turn off sleep mode.

Make sure that the battery is totally drained by waiting for your laptop to shut off or go into sleep mode automatically because of very low battery charge.

Plug the power adapter again and charge the battery again completely. Once this is done, restore the power-saving features and adjust the contract settings of your screen to normal.

I have ac adapter plugged into the wall, and into the computer, the charge pack light is green, the battery is in the computer and the computer won't turn on at all


You probably have a bad or loose DC jack on the laptop:



Problem symptoms:

  1. Laptop randomly shuts down without any warning.
  2. Power LED and battery charge LED start flickering when you wiggle the power cord or the AC adapter tip on the back or your laptop.
  3. The battery will not get charged.
  4. When you plug AC adapter, the laptop appears to be dead and there is no LED activity at all (DC-IN jack on the system board is broken).

Hello my laptop isn't charging properly. It is plugged in and all of the cables are connected. There is power in the plug socket but it doesn't seem to be charging. Help!


Hi! Drain the power charges of the laptop by shutting it down and by unplugging both ac adapter (charger) and battery from the computer.

Press the power button for like 10 times while the battery and charger is disconnected to drain the power of the board.

connect back the battery first then connect the charger to the computer. Make sure that the charger is connected to a stable power outlet while charging the system.

Please leave a comment if you have any other questions.

Cheers!

Why won't my computer charge


the battery might be going bad on it, try taking the battery out and running the computer just off of the plug. that series of HP has overheating issues and are prone to randomly shutting down. if you have a bad battery, it can overstress the powersupply trying to charge a bad battery. Also, the solder joints tend to go bad on the motherboard where the power jack is connected to it, so try holding your power wire at a bit of an angle while turning it on and see if that does the trick (the sideways force can temporarily connect those broken joints.. There was also a class action settlement on these computers i believe, so google class action zd7000 and see if you qualify. The power plug jack was part of this, so you might get it fixed free of charge.
