Q: What causes Satellite C55-B5302 to turn on then turn off again?

Hello i've Toshiba C55-B5302 when i try to turn on and then turn off again. You can turn on the laptop as normal. The LED lights on the laptop light up, but once this is done, the laptop just runs for 5 seconds and it automatically shuts off again. You can hear the fan run for a while but other that it just turns off. So what is the cause for a problem like this? i've dissasemly it and clean the fan there's no dust, i've remove the battery and keep the power button for 60sec read it on other forum, press many times the power button without the battery and the charger to reset the bios info, but without any luck.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

It is not easy to say what the problem may be. Disconnect AC power supply, remove the battery and press power button for 10 seconds. Leave the machine for a while and try to start it with AC power supply only.

Hi all,

My Satellite M60 has no power indicator lights lit neither for the battery nor for the AC connection. It will not turn on. When I connect the AC cord the indicator light flashes for a fraction of a second but nothing happens. I disassembled the unit and checked for broken DC connection. The connector is fine, not loose, the motherboard has power where the DC connection is soldered in.
It happened after I installed Zone Alarm and tried to reboot with a cold boot.
Does anybody have experience with a company doing component level repair?
I don`t want to replace the motherboard, the system is only 18 months old.
The bast*rds at Toshiba Canada want me to pay $50 for phone support (laptop is 6 months out of warranty), I find that disgusting.

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks ,

Sometime mid Feb my Satellite PRO R50-C-116 wouldn't turn on for me. I checked the forums, and followed the advice, and replaced the charger. Once that arrived, and that didn't solve the problem, I tried a new battery. The new battery has just arrived, and unfortunately that hasdn't worked either.
The light on the front of my laptop is flashing, and I've managed to decode it (through google) to error code 20h which according to the code that means "20h Main battery voltage is over 13.46V. (Not supported)".
Anyone got any ideas how I can fix this?

First of all, which Satellite notebook you have exaclty?

Well in your case I would try to remove the battery and AC/DC adaptor. Wait one hour and then connect the AC/DC adaptor and battery again.

If it doesn?t work it?s time so contact an ASP. The technicians should check your notebook to determine what parts are faulty or not.

My Satellite Pro L50-A was working well till yesterday but today it just won't turn on. A small orange led light is appearing when I connect to power cable..

This is what I have done so far -

1. Removed power cable
2. Using a needle, pressed force shutdown button at the bottom for 10-12 secs
3. Then I pressed start/power button in the front for 60-70 secs
4. I connected power cable and then again pressed start/power button in the front for 60-70 secs

still the laptop doesn't start !

Hey everyone!
I've recently bought a refurbished C50D-C00U, and it worked fine for the first couple of days. I left it running, not doing anything in particular for a few minutes and come back to it powered down. Pressing the power button makes the LED flash slowly 5 times.
I've read through other forums and tried the solutions there (removing the battery and holding the power down for 45+ seconds, trying a different power cable, reseating the RAM, booting without any RAM, etc.) but none of these have made any difference.
I tried again today, and nothing seems to be happening at all, not even the 5 slow flashes.
Can anyone suggest what it might be, and any ways I might be able to fix it?
Thanks in advace,

Hello Everyone,

My laptop Satellite C55-A-1N9 has 6 Gb (4 + 2) RAM. I have tried to upgrade (4 + 4) 8 Gb RAM and it was successful. I turned on the computer and 8 GB RAM worked very well.

After 15 minutes, Suddenly I see my computer is not charging. AC cable was plugged in but not charging and there was a red X sign on the battery sign at the taskbar. And then the battery was empty and laptop turned of. I couldn't turn on my computer anymore. I have tried that battery and AC take out and 30 seconds turn on button press but it didn't worked.

1- I cant open my laptop anymore, what can I do?

2- Is there problem with motherboard? What do you think? What is your suggestions for solution?

HI Guys,

Im seriously freaking out here.
I re installed windows 7 using the f8 key system.
Worked great. Had a clean laptop. Purchased the new office 2013 and installed just great.
Installed WinRar and AVG.

That about as far as i got before it started mis behaving.

So it started to run very slow.
I shut everything down, opened task manager and the CPU was running at 80%- 100% continuously.

Nothing was opened. I even checked in the processes and nothing was showing that high usage.
No device connect or programs running. I even uninstalled AVG.

Then i thought lets give it a restart.
It shut down but never turned back on.
Now i cannot turn it on.

I removed the battery and connected the power and still no luck.
Im out of my warranty so i cannot send it to toshiba.

Do you think the ram got fried?

Im open to any suggestions. Please

A:Cannot turn on Satellite T130-13M


It could be possible that your RAM is faulty.
But in your case it could be any hardware part which malfunctions.
However, the RAM module is the first part which needs to be checked.
You could remove it and could check how the notebook would act using just one module.

The best case would be the usage of new, goo tested RAM modules.
But this is just my personal opinion?

Hi Everyone,

My Toshiba C50-B suddenly stoped to turn on after not using for 5 days.
If I plug in to power, charging LED is lighting red for 5-6 seconds only. At that time it is not booting, fan is not going and screen was black.
Same situation was occured when I pressed power button.
If I remove the battery, charging LED lights on white, but when I push power button, nothing is happening.
I tried to solve it through forum advice (removing battery, holding down power button for 30 up to 60 seconds) but this made no difference.
Without plugged in power cable, even indicators are not lighting.

So can anyone suggest how to fix it? (Unfortunately there is not any official Toshiba Service Center in our region, Uzbekistan).

Before the format i have seen numbers up to 99c with out making the laptop BBQ, but for safety reasons it was turning off which fine for me
After format when it reach 84~85c computer is turning off for safety reasons !!

Am i missing a specific driver that i didn't add ? And which is that ? Can u provide a link for this ?

Did have a look at the web
Bios doesn't have adjustment for temperature
Have formatted the laptop sometime ago and it worked fine afterwards
Have installed the drivers from Toshiba web-site in order to run the laptop

On this virtual way it is not possible to offer some precise diagnostic. All you can do is to disconnect AC power supply, remove battery and leave it for a while. Then press power button and hold it for 15 or 20 seconds.
After doing this connect AC power supply and try to start it again.

Hello everyone.

I?ve got a problem with my SP6100. It doesn?t seem to start any more.
No matter if the power supply is connected or not, or the battery removed (with power supply connected of course).

The DC In LED on the far left is blinking orange in the following pattern:
2 times, pause, 6 times, pause.....looped.
Could it be the power supply? I meant it?s blinking, when the power supply?s not connected and the
battery shouldn?t be empty, since it worked fine a few days ago.

Many thanks in advance.

A:Can't turn on Satellite Pro 6100

Yes, there is some problem with power supply electronic and now your notebook sends hexadecimal code and this code is actually important for service guys.
They can read this hexadecimal code and identify the problem.

I don't know what the problem can be but it can be serious problem and I recommend you to contact nearest Toshiba authorized service and ask for help.

Hello everyone,

As funny as my question may sound ... it's actually serious!
I have big concerns over battery life (not so much of the one of a single recharge, but the one affecting the "life" of the notebook itself!) because there doesn`t even seem to be a way to COMPLETELY turn this notebook off! This feels like a joke for a notebook advertising with an "eco" label supposed to help reduce wasting natural resources (which was an important part for my purchase decision).

When I hibernate the notebook or turn it off by long-pressing the "Power" button, the LED's indicating battery mode etc. are still on, by that the battery is slightly drained even when the notebook is turned off. While the LED's will of course certainly not use a lot of power, it means that the next time I'm plugging in my computer, +a new recharging cycle is initiated+ which could have been avoided without that. With a battery usually surviving 1000 recharging cycles, this will force me to buy a new battery (by the way: what a shame and how "yesterday" that the battery is built-in and not replaceable by the buyer!) within less than 2 years if I plug off a few times every day.

Alltogether this sounds very much like "planned obsolescence" and I am annoyed by the mere thought supporting something like that. And basically I am very happy with the Z930, so the more I am frustrated by this completely pointless battery drain. Any idea how to turn off the... Read more

So recently I updated something on my Satellite (Specific Model - C50D-B-120), and after it was finished instead of the usual "restarting" screen it came up with a "shutting down" screen, which I thought was odd in the first place. After it turned off, I tried turning it back on again. The light around the power button came on as normal and the fan came on too (Though I noticed that the fan wasn't working as well as usual), but the screen and lights at the front of the laptop stayed off... Any ideas on how to fix it?

Hi, I have had a Toshiba Satellite A665 for a few years now and have had no major problems up until now.

The first thing that happened is it would shut down randomly while I was using it. I turned it back on a few times and it worked for a while (maybe a few hours) before I noticed its next symptom. I had it plugged into the AC adapter and I started noticing it would only charge for 36 seconds at a time (yes I timed it) and then stop. If I unplugged it and plugged it back in it would work for another 36 seconds.

I then noticed that even though it was plugged in the battery indicator said 0% and not charging. Then it shut off again and I haven't been able to start it since. Now when I plug it in a white light just blinks repeatedly but nothing happens when I press power.

I have removed the battery, drained the power, replaced it, nothing. I have removed and reinserted the RAM, hard drive, and dvd drive, nothing.

Even worse, I put my hard drive in my other Toshiba Satellite, it booted once and now that one has THE SAME PROBLEM and won't start either. I am beyond frustrated and don't know what the hell's going on.

Thanks to anyone who tries to help...

A:Toshiba Satellite won't turn on

Not sure why your other Tosh wouldn't fire up but read on line about one guy who removed the battery for a short while with the AC cord plugged in and then put it back in.

This apparently resets the circuitry as it severs the memory from that battery and the computer "thinks" it's getting a new battery.

If your Tosh is modern enough to have a recovery partition, will it boot up into recovery mode by tapping F8 on boot up or clearing the BIOS may help (?)

I have a Toshiba satellite a200, it won't turn on, it gives me a black screen and 1 long and 2 short beeps, the only lights that turn on are the charging light and the HDD light, what is the problem?

I have drained the power from the motherboard and replaced the RAM.

A:Satellite A200 won't turn on

Well, usually its nothing unusual for the notebook to make one or two short beeps during the startup process.
But if the notebook beeps and the system does not boot up an serious hardware problem could exists.

I’m afraid there is some serious motherboard problem and probably only the mobo replacement would help you to fix this issue.

Hello everyone.
I have a toshiba satellite L 50 B and when I press the power button, the device turns on (no image, but the power button turn on and the orange led below light up), but at the second turn off. It has all the appearance of being a short circuit, but I do not know where it is taking place. If I remove the RAM the laptop turns on, but obviously does not give an image, it does not turn off at the second. I have tried with many modules of RAM memories that in other equipment they work perfectly and even a colleague has left me the motherboard of his equipment and does exactly the same problem.
I've also tried another power button and another DC-IN cable and it does exactly the same thing, it turns on, but it shuts down at the second.
I think it is a short circuit, but it is rare that it happens to two motherboards equals and also, I do not note that any component of the motherboard is hot when I connect it to the electrical network (the white LED indicates that it reaches power is turned on).
A greeting and await your responses.

I have had this laptop for 2 years, it was working fine this morning and i pressed the power button to turn it to sleep mode. Went back to the laptop a few hours later to turn it back on and the power light lit up for approx 2-3 seconds then went out and nothing happened. Every time i press the power button the same thing happens, the light appears for 2-3 seconds then goes off and laptop does not start up. This happens both with the power adaptor connected and disconnected. When the power connector is connected the power adaptor light illuminates and the battery light illuminates.

Does anybody have any idea what the problem may be or if it can be fixed?

Hello outhere,

The backlight of my M-series M70-147 does not turn on anymore.
I first noticed this when awakening the laptop from standby or hibernation mode.

At first I thought the screen was not working anymore, but when I looked closely I could still make out the icons on the desktop vaguely. So at first I rebooted the laptop and then most of the times the backlight would turn on and stay on.

But now it does not do that anymore, not even when I close the screen (to force standby mode) and then open it again, the backlight won't turn on.

I also looked at other forums and topics what the cause might be, a broken backlight or a faulty power inverter.

So can anybody with the symptons described tell me what the cause might be?
I'm pretty sure nothing is wrong with the graphics card because when I hooked on my laptop to my dads LCD monitor it just displayed the desktop of my laptop on the LCD monitor. Also the first time I did this after pressing Fn-F5 a few times the screen of my laptop would come on some times. But now it does not do that anymore.

So can anybody with the symptons described tell me what the cause might be?

Many thanks.

A:Backlight does not turn on anymore Satellite M70-147

> So can anybody with the symptons described tell me what the cause might be?

For me it looks like a faulty FL inverter.
The FL inverter is a small part behind the display frame and it controls the backlight.

Usually the external display should work properly because the FL inverter affects the internal display only...
However, the issue can be solved only by replacement of this part.

I recommend contacting the Toshiba ASP in your country to get this part replaced

Sorry if this is a piece of cake for you.

Laptop was overheating; I usually just undo a few screws, dig out the fluff on the fins, rebuild and all is ok.

BIG mistake: I hibernated computer instead of turning off, left battery in and then disassembled (don't ask me how or why I did this because I do not know)

Lot of fluff taken out of fins.

Upon rebuild, power button only illuminates green LED, screen stays dead, no audio noise, no beeps.

Have taken apart 3 times now and rebuilt, but can not find a problem.

A:Satellite Pro C660 does not turn on - green LED only

On this virtual way it is not easy to say what is wrong there. Obviously there is no reaction at all. Even BIOS doesn't work. Maybe some electroshock and now BIOS chip is screwed up.
Man why do you play with your notebook if you don't have experience with this stuff?

Sorry to say this but I?m afraid mainboard is death. I really don't know what to say.
You can ry to search for same or similar notebook on eBay. Maybe you can find same machine with defective display ot anything else but with well working manboard.

Repair is pretty expensive so I don't think it is an option for you.
What do you think about all this?

I have a Satellite m50d-a-103 which runs Ubuntu.

The OS crashed recently. I'm unsure if the laptop actually turned off or not. But the screen is dark, and the Laptop does not start when pressing the power button.

The only thing the Laptop does is that the power LED blinks 5 times when the power button is released (it doesn't matter how long it was pressed before). There is not splash-screen or anything, the screen is completely dark.

The help located here suggested that I remove the RAM, but I'm not sure that that's a good idea, as I'm not sure that the Laptop is actually turned off.

What I have tried is pressing the power button for 20 seconds. I also tried pressing the - or what I assume to be the - reset button on the back of the laptop.

The only idea I have now is to hope that the Laptop doesn't work because it indeed did not turn off, and to wait until the battery is empty. But I'm afraid that that will take a very long time.

So my questions are:

- How can I fix this?
- How can I find out if the Laptop is actually turned off?
- If it's not actually turned off, how can I turn it off (it has an internal battery, so removing it will not be easy)?
- Or is this a hardware problem? And if so, how can I find out which component might be the problem?

Thanks for any help you can offer!

A:Satellite M50D-A-103 crashed and does not turn on

[for some reason I can't edit my original post]

I wasn't able to find the manual for the m50d-a on toshibas website, but I wound it here: http://www.manualslib.com/products/T...A-3509950.html.

For the Power Indicator Flashing white, it says: "Indicates that the computer is in Sleep Mode and that there is sufficient power available (AC adaptor or battery) to maintain this condition."

So I guess my initial assumption might be correct. I still don't know how to get out of sleep mode though.

Any ideas?
