Batteries only have a useful life and once it is used up they have to be replaced.

If you can get on the laptop and work without any problems using your AC Adapter and Power Cord then the battery is definitely dead and needs to be replaced.

If you have problems using your computer using the AC Adapter and Power Cord then either your Power Cord is Bad or the DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. If either of these two is bad they will not charge a Good Battery.

Check your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

My joybook R55U V10 suddenly does not power up. It has no lights, despite the powerpack being connected. Same symptons exist with a different powerpack and with another battery installed. Is there a...

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

How to replace dc power jack for toshiba p15

Take apart laptop and see what type of jack is on your system. There are two types. one is soldered on and the other is a module that connects to the motherboard with a wire connector.

If you have a soldered on type the you will need to de-solder it from the board then solder a new one onto the board. most ac jack issue just need to resolder it unless the jack itself is broken.

Need to replace power plug in,what is the best way to take the computer apart.

Ebay is full of replacement power jacks for laptops. But you need to find a competent electronics tech with a good, fine, temperature controlled soldering station.. Ya dont want to get out the big old soldering gun and have at it yourself.. unless you can afford to really mess up your laptop's board..

Trying to open up joybook 8100

If you look very carefully at the top of the keyboard in the recess there are 3 tabs that can be pushed back towards the screen with a knife blade and you can lift the top of the keyboard out and remove it. You will then find 3 silver screws that hold the top to the bottom. Three cables need to be removed from their sockets and the cables that connect to the network card (a black and a grey wire) the connectors just pull off. Use a small screwdriver to prise them up gently. Voila the laptop is now in two pieces.
