Toshiba Satellite L305-5955 does not respond to power supply, new power jack

Q: Toshiba Satellite L305-5955 does not respond to power supply, new power jack

Toshiba Satellite L305-5955, Ive taken apart and replaced power jack. Not directly soldered to motherboard. While still apart, and battery out/in, connected power supply and still absolutely no response. Power supply is NOT original, and slightly different specs, i.e original 19v..6.3A

current 19v..3.1A

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Toshiba Satellite L305-5955 does not respond to power supply, new power jack

Almost certainly the problem is that the current rating is wrong, if the laptop needs
6.3 A of current, it won't function on less (just as you can't use a 3A fuse for a kettle!)
Unfortunately it must be the right current rating, I know, I've been caught that way too!
Maybe you can exchange it?

I have a laptop with Win 7 HP 32bit SP1, which doesnt boot at all, if the power cord (AC Adapter/Battery charger) is plugged in. Further if power cord is plugged in after booting, the system hangs / shuts down. It runs fine on safe mode. I believe it is a driver updation problem but not sure. I have updated all drivers given in Toshiba download site. Any suggestions?

A:Toshiba Satellite L305 not bootable if power cord is plugged in

Hi ahimsasoldier, Welcome to the forums ,Have you access to a different AC adaptor ? that you can try to see if the one you are using is faulty
You say you have updated all the drivers from Toshiba website and you still have a problem did you check the Ram using "memtest" ?

I have a Toshiba L305-S5955 laptop running Vista. Never had any problems and was running smooth. Yesterday I powered up the laptop and used it then walked away from it for about 10 minutes. When I came back the screen was dark and I thought it just timed out. I moved my mouse to wake up the laptop and nothing happened. I then noticed that the "power" light was not on. I pressed the "power" button to turn on the laptop but nothing happened. I have a green light on for the AC power and a green light for the battery which I've tested both and they are working fine. Also, when pressing the "power" button the DVD drive light will flicker but still nothing happens, no power on light, no fan, no drive spin up. I've tried holding the "power" button down for 30 sec with and without the battery installed. I've removed and re-seated the memory sticks. Removed the memory sticks, hard drive and battery and pressed the "power" button. Is there anything I am missing? I was thinking perhaps the CMOS battery went bad but before taking apart the laptop I wanted to see if anyone had any other suggestions that I should try.

Thanks for your help.

Hi all,

My Toshiba Satellite A30-871 notebook has started discharging the battery whilst the mains power supply is connected (The LED shows that AC is connected but Laptop consumes battery power instead of charging battery and using AC power). When the battery reaches 0% laptop will switch off. Removing the power plug and reconnecting does not solve the problem while the computer is ON, only shutting down computer starts the battery to charge. Which means that I can use laptop as long as battery retains some power. Sometimes when the notebook is off and battery is being charged, battery charging LED starts to blink and I have to remove the power jack and plug it back.

I don''t think its a loose power connector because the light shows the power is connected.

I wonder if anyone got a solution for me.

Regards,
nova

I have a Dell 8600 about two years old. When I plug in the AC adapter, it intermittently fades to the battery as though the plug was pulled out (its not) and of course the screen fades in an out when every time it swithces--it does it every 30 to 60 seconds or so. I switched to a different AC adapter (I have a Dell 600M with the same AC adapter)-same thing so I know it is something internally. Any ideas?

I'm interested in the Toshiba G25 laptop but have heard that you can't use it on airplane seat power. It comes with a 120W AC power supply (15Vx8A), but I've been told that most airlines limit seat power to 75-90W max. Lind sells a 12V car adaptor for the G25, but specifically won't include an airline plug for this reason (which I can get independently, of course). I've read some interesting electrical discussions on this board. Can ya'll comment on the following or provide any general advice about power consumption?

1) Given that the voltage of the laptop and airline seat power pretty much match up (12-15V), if the amp draw on the laptop exceeds what the airline power supply can deliver, what will happen? Will it damage the laptop to feed it insufficient current? Will it shut down the laptop altogether? Merely dim the screen?

2) If I remove the laptop battery, which requires power to charge it, how much will that reduce the power need of the laptop? I'm not sure how to work the math, but the spec sheet states the battery supplies 4400mAh at 8A output. Does it require the same to charge it?

3) Most importantly, on my 15 hour transpacific flights, will the DVD player work with that ultrabrite screen at the low airline power supply? A nice feature of the laptop is that you can watch DVDs without powering up the Windows operating system (it has a small linux OS for the DVD player). Granted, the DVD drive and screen are prob...

Hi there, I have a toshiba A75 laptop that does not boot when on ac power without a battery beyond bios. It shows the splash screen but then dies on normal boot.

When I have the battery in and the unit is powered off It does charge the battery.
When the battery is fully charged, it will run and boot into windows but does not recognize the ac power at all. It just drains the battery, then when the battery is at 0 it shuts off and this is while connected to AC power and the LED see's the AC power.

When on AC power I can boot into bios and it will sit there for days without a battery, but when I try to get to the OS it just shuts down. I have replaced the mobo twice. I have replaced the hard drive as well. The odd part is that with the hard drive out of the laptop, I can get the laptop to run with out any power failures. It just recycles the media device failure message but does not crash.

I have tested the power supply on other laptops and it seems to work just fine.

Any one have any ideas?
 

A:Toshiba Satellite A75 boot/power issue with AC power

Since you have replaced the system board twice, this probably does not apply to you... but we have seen a number of Toshibas with the same or similar motherboard where the power jack on the board became loose or disconnected. A new jack had to be obtained and soldered back into position.
If you bought used boards or refurbished boards, this difficult jack problem could have been the cause. It requires a special cold solder technique and is awkward to access, but when done properly by an experienced tech, it can save a laptop.
There are several Dell Inspirons and Sony laptops with the similar problem.
We have seen costs in a shop as high as $160 for this repair... but the part is only $6.00 so I don't know how they justify the high cost.

I have a powersupply, that turns on right away, when I flip the 1/0 switch in the back, no matter if a mobo is plugged into it or not. I plugged it into a mobo, and hooked up the power connection, and when i push the on button on the case, nothing happens.. However all my fans are running, lights are on. I have to switch off the powersupply to make it shut off. I tried this in 2 cases/mobo's same thing. Is this PS toast, or can I short some pins/wires (colors?) to make it shut off, with the ps switch on 1. It's a Raidmax PS.
thanks.

Hi All,
My computer keeps freezing at random, sometimes it won't let me get in to the home screen & like now it will let me in for a little wile. I can't work on more than one thing at a time or it will freeze up immediately. Also when run scans like my virus scan it will freeze. I tried to run the SFC/Scannnow & it freezes up on that one also. doesn't matter if it's in safe mode or not. Also when I try to run it in safe mode it would sometimes freeze on the same line everytime. "CRCDISK.SYS. I would then have to manualy turn it off & reboot & after a few tries it will come on.

If allowed to sit with no user action, the problem does not occur. Have run a couple of virus and malware checks against the system, and cleaned/deleted the items found. There really was not a significant number of threats found. Have tried disabling non-essential startup software to no-avail. Problem prevents me from upgrading to SP2.

No help from niece in terms of anything she might have done, or software she might have installed to start the troubles. Nothing available in system restores to allow roll-back - although system restore is enabled.

I've read that the thing that destroys the battery fastest is overcharging the battery. That's why I want to turn it off. The only alternative that I have been able to find is unplugging the battery which means I have to restart machine from scratch, as opposed to waken it from sleep, every time I want to use it.

Is there a way to stop the battery from charging other than unplugging it?

Quick question:
On the bottom of my 3.5yr old Toshiba A70 Satellite laptop it tells me the power supply is DC19V - 6.3A

If I understand this to be 19volts -6.3 Amps.... then will an alternate/generic power supply of 19Volts -max5amps cause my computer to shut down unexpectedly and repeatedly after 4-6 wks of problem-free usage.

After I changed my power supply (prev. supply just stopped working) the computer worked fine for a while...then started shutting down unexpectedly. On one particular day it shut down repeatedly 3-4x, and now wouldn't start properly. (Safe mode start screen that despite selection would reboot back to this screen ONLY)

I brought it to Tiger Direct for repair, explaining problem.....they suggested they reload the OS and found the orig. hard drive to have bad sectors and further suggested a NEW hard drive. They also suggested so many shutdowns may have damaged the hard drive leading to the problem. It was only after they reinstalled OS and new hard drive that they found it still shut down unexpectedly. I was annoyed now....as this is when they realized the power supply "wasn't enough AMPS" and blamed problem on this. I have a personal guarantee from manager now that they will refund my repair costs if I get a new power supply with proper amps....and still have problem. (this would apparently indicate motherboard problem and not power supply and I wouldn't have needed new HD)

Can anybody help.... I am at my technological limit... Read more

I?m afraid there is no much you can do about that. Fact is that your notebook has hardware problem. On this virtual way it is not easy to say what it is. I cannot say for sure but I presume power supply electronic is a troublemaker.

All you can do now is to contact nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help. They have special diagnostic tools and can check what is wrong there.

Hi all,

I am having a rather odd problem with my P50-B satellite that I am starting to get very sick of. The computer seems to have a problem with its cooling system.

If you start the computer with the power supply plugged in; everything will work well (you can hear the fan going). If you then unplug the computer so that it runs on battery; it will still work well and the fan will keep operating. However, after about 10 minutes, if you then plug the computer back into the power supply the fan will not work. I can then start to feel the aluminium chassis heat up and then the computer will begin to slow down until it is nearly unusuable and will sometimes shut-down automatically (thermal).

If you plug the computer back into the power and the fan is not working; then a restart will fix it and the fan will start spinning at a high RPM as soon as the computer is restarted. However, this process is getting very annoying.

My cooling policy is set to Active for "On battery" and "Plugged in" energy states.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Trav.

The power jack is removable, and attached via cable to the motherboard. It looked like it was in pretty good shape and the cable and connector did not seem to be stressed.

I also tried plugging it in to an external monitor with no results.

Any suggestions?

Hey,

That?s really strange. I never heard about such an issue and this does only happens with disconnected AC/DC adaptor?!

Have you installed another 3rd party driver that is not from the Toshiba page? Especially I mean the display driver.
Furthermore you should try to reinstall Windows using the Toshiba recovery disk.

But I think in this case you need professional help from an authorized service provider. The technicians can check the notebook for you and repair it because this should not happen. By the way, on the Toshiba website you can search for nearest authorized service provider.

Ok, here?s the story. I own a Toshiba Satellite A350 laptop for a few years. As every night, laptop was on, I press the power button making it go into hibernate and then pull out the plug (battery is out, since it is always on cable and it might save the battery)

The next day, I plug in the adapter, press the power button and nothing happens. Literally nothing. Black screen, not a single sound .. nothing. All I can see is the indication light that the adapter is plugged in, which lights up.

I searched the internet (using another PC, duh ) and found lots of similar issues with Toshiba laptops. Main solution seems to be holding the power button for 30 second, putting the battery in and restarting it. None of these methods help.

I took the laptop apart, checked (and disconnected) the CMOS battery. Checked the power button, which is working, cleaned everything.

Here?s the weird thing: I have an USB optical mouse and a keyboard connected. I noticed that ?besides the indication of the adapter- the red light of my mouse is on all the time and also the indication lights (caps lock, num lock) of my keyboard can be switched on. So there seems to be power on my USB as soon as I connect my adapter.

Hope anyone can help, because I ran out of options. Two friends looked into it, no one has a clue.

Hi:

I liked the Toshiba Power Saver that I had used for so long with my laptop, but after upgrading to W7-32b it does not work anymore... Most of the new utilities and drivers from Toshiba are specific for W7-64b.

I was wondering if a driver from a relatively new computer (32b based) would work fine in mine and, if it is worth a try, which one would be the most "similar" laptop to mine?

In case nothing works is there any other power management utility that you could recommend me?

Thanks!

hi fernandoc, if your laptop originally came with Vista, just reinstall the same drivers, but install them in Compatibility mode with Vista,

Hi, I need help with my toshiba satellite a215-s4747. There is no power when I press the power button when I plug in a AC adapter. no any light on or blinking.
I disassembled it, remove ram, modem, hot-sink, fan, cpu. I plug in a AC power adapter to the motherboard and use a voltage meter to measure it. It has 19.8v,
so will be the motherboard problem? Thank you for help!
 

A:Toshiba Satellite A215-S4747 no power on

What about the battery instead of Power Adaptor?

Also you may need to check for break in the power socket on the Motherboard (um usually underneath the Mobo )

We have a Toshiba Satellite laptop that is nothing short of disappointing...but that's another story. This laptop has Toshiba Power Management and I have the setting where I would like them but they don't seem to operate properly. When the laptop is left alone for 5 minutes it basically goes into hibernation when I don't have it set up that way. I have tried to use windows power management in the control panel but somehow the Toshiba Power Management overrules that. How do I make the settings work propertly and is there a way to get rid of Toshiba Power management so I can manage it via windows?

I found it in control panel and uninstalled it...thought I had looked in there before.

Hey guys,
I've searched the forums a little to find a solution to my problem.
Having not found anything that seems to be the fix, i'm here - with my first post.

I've been looking at a friends Toshiba Satellite A300, that wont power on.
It was working fine until he purchased a new charger - a universal one.
He took the model number into the shop and was told this charger would do the job.
He told me the tip was hard to get into the charger port, he had to use force.

Since then, it hasn't powered on. He told me the charge lights were coming on, but nothing else.

I have the same model laptop as him, so we tried with my charger, my battery, still nothing.

I've taken the laptop completely apart. Re-seated everything. Still nothing.

What i noticed was that with the battery in, and my charger, when i left it charging for a while and tried to power on, it waited maybe a minute then the fan and power on lights came on for maybe 5 seconds then it died again.

Another thing i've noticed is that when it's charging with the battery in, the quick play lights near the power button work. I can press them without the laptop being on and they turn on/off except the media light, it stays on if turned on.

The only thing i have yet to try is replacing the CMOS battery.

I was wondering if anyone here has any idea what may be the problem here? It seems very odd for this to just start happening. The laptop hasn't been taken apart ... Read more

Hi all,

I keep getting the following led error code...

(L - Long, S - Short) LSSSSLSS

This repeats over and over again. I've tried researching what this code is relation to but with no joy. I suspect a motherboard issue or power microprocessor issue.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have a Toshiba Satellite P15-S420 P4 3Ghz Laptop that has the following issue. The laptop will run normally, but when it is powered off, it wont start back up for an hour or two. Has anyone experienced similar problems like this and if so did a bios update or anything else solve this issue. I am just looking for feedback. I was thinking it might be a heat issue but it is not shutting down on its own. Thanks for your help

Hello!

I have the Toshiba Satellite S55D-A5383 Laptop and I have a problem with battery, i think.
Laptop doesn't boot without power supply. This is happening since last week.
Actually, from April 2015 battery doesn't last as it did when I bought it(May 2014).
I have'nt registered the product and I think I am out of warranty.

So, what can I do to fix this problem?

A:Satellite S55D-A5383 doesn't boot without power supply

You'll probably just have to get a new battery that's what I did. Try Amazon.

Last old XP based notebook switch OFF correctly power supply. Why this Toshiba not switch OFF right mode the pen drive?

Anticipated Thanks,

A:Satellite Pro M500 - Doesn't switch off power supply for USB pen drive

Hi

Do you really think that this is an issue?
To be honest sometimes I can notice the same that disconnecting a USB pen drive the LED doesn?t go off but Windows tells me I can remove the drive. So I think if Windows tells me that all should be ok.
What do you think?

Furthermore it would be interesting to know if you are running factory settings or your own Windows installation.
Make also sure that BIOS version is the newest.

I have a W540, which currently uses a 170W power supply (20V 8.5A) I also just recieved a docking station for a P50 which has a 230W power supply showing 20V 11.5A. The connectors look the same, but I'm hesitant to try the 230W power supply in the W540. Should this be ok to use the 230W power supply with the W540?













Solved!

Go to Solution.

A:Power Supply Question - Can I use the 230W power supply with a W540?

230 watts is the maximum power supply, it only supplies the power needed by the computer. I sold my W540, so i can't test this for you. But i do the use the ThinkPad X1 Carbon with the 230 watts power adapter without any problem.

I have 2 failed Z800 power supplies (1150 watt version). After some internet research I am led to believe this is a common problem and related to the PS capacitors. Since I do not know how to do this capacitor replacement (yet). I thought I would buy a new PS. However, I do not want to buy a Z800 PS since it seems to me to be a defective design. Can anyone chime in and tell me if the new z840 1125 watt PS will work with my older z800? I have called HP support and spoken with the correct support people on this and they were not able to confirm if the Z840 PS will work (fit) on the z800. The closest confirmantion I recieved was that if it fits then it should work. Instructions to fix the capacitors:http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Z800-power-on-issue... Same issue I am facing:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f563JGeoxaw On a side note, can anyone recommend a good service tech to make such capacitor repares in Southern California or insrtuctions on how to make this repair (with pictures). Thanks

Hey there,

I have a Toshiba Satellite, A215-S5837. About 6 months ago my original adapter had died completely. So I had got a universal one. No problems up until recently. Now I had done some research before asking this question. I had looked up the prior thread located here. http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/548923-toshiba-laptop-power-cord-failure.html
As well as a few other places. The universal charger is not working now. I had my thoughts on the Jack as well however. its a pretty new computer, only about a 1.5 yrs old. Since its a Universal adapter I went and tried the adapter on my girlfriends laptop. Same problem, however when I plug my girlfriends charger into hers it works perfectly fine. No problems what so ever.
Now here is what worries me.

My Jack does get warm sometimes. but the Adapter gets very hot until my laptop is completely charged.
My computer recognizes that it is plugged in however the power light will flash between orange and blue while the battery will be orange regardless if its fully charged. If its fully charged it will be blue but when this happens it changes to orange and the screen dims.

These are the only problems that I have noticed thus far. Any suggestions or thoughts.? Maybe just buy a new charger? Time to replace the Jack and Charger?

Thanks in advance for all the help.

-Andrew
