Satellite L20-153: Question on the use of the power supply

Hi eweryone,.

I just bought a L20-153, and I don't know if I can have the powersypply of cable connected to the computer constantly, as I use it as a home computer.
Is it dangerus to have the power cable plugged in, even if I don't use it for a day or two?

As the battery must be installed on the computer, so that it works, will be the battery damaged penalty if I have the cable permanently connected?

If anyone here knows sometings of these things, it would be a great help.


Hi Stefan

There s no risk of having plugged power cable but it s not advised to have the AC adapter plugged in if you n t use the laptop.
If the AC adapter is connect the battery will be charged each time.
You must remove the battery when the AC adapter is connected. So, you can increase the battery working time.

  • Satellite A30 213: broken in the power supply pin

    I have so many problems with this.
    I'd rather put it in the trash than to fix it, but unfortunately I have important documents that I have not saved.

    Basically, the PIN into the Jack of the laptop is broken and I can't be able to my laptop and my battery is running out of power

    The battery is in the battery-compatible A30 - 213 in the A30 714?

    And someone has other solutions?

    Please answer as soon as possible


    First of all a few words about the battery.
    If I m not wrong not the Satellite A30 213 uses the same battery as the A30-714.
    Therefore, you should be able to use the same battery in both units A30.

    With regard to the question on another solution.
    Well, there is only one real solution. The power supply needs to be replaced.
    I m not sure if it s only plugged or soldered on the map. However, I recommend you contact the ASP in your country for assistance.
    This should be always replaced by a mobile technician because the dismantling procedure is very delicate and difficult.

    Best regards and good luck

  • Satellite L350-21F NO CONNECT the power SUPPLY

    The computer tells me in Windows it is not connected to the power supply, even if it is connected. I tried with and without battery, also the power icon is not lit, and now the battery is almost empty. The computer worked for the past 6 years and now all of a sudden what happens.

    Can you help me how to find which component does not work? What are the factors despite the adapter are possible because of this problem and how can I know?

    Thank you in advance.

The reference number of this power supply is PA3378E-1ACA which is 15v 5A side, and one that exploded because of worn wiring part was PA3378U-1ACA.

    Would it not good for me to use it? My laptop was left uncharged for days now, really needing to work! :(

  • Satellite A100-TA9: failure of the power supply cord - where to get a new

    Recently my power cord has stopped working on my Satellite A100-TA9 system.
    My system warranty has expired and passes through 'Authorized support vendors' Toshiba was useless.

    Anyone know where I can get a replacement power cord?
    I live in Toronto, Canada.

    Thank you


    > My system warranty has expired and passes through 'Authorized support vendors' Toshiba was useless
    I n think so.

    First of all, you know that a disassembly of the laptop is very delicate and not easy. ASP technicians have sufficient experience to perform this replacement with touch course. I mean you have no risk something would be accidentally damaged during disassembly procedure.

    Second, you must contact the local ASP to get a compatible power cord.
    I think you'd need a power cord which has been designed especially for the A100 series.
    Guys could order directly from Toshiba.

    See you soon

  • Satellite L20-153: How do I get my modem works!

    I have the satellite L20-153 with a 'AC97 datafax softmodem with smart CP. I tried for 2 days so he can compose up to my ISP. I removed all DUN connections, removed the modem and downloaded all the last modem, sound and other drivers from the toshiba Web site. I still get "No dialtone".

    The modem does not seem to pick up and I don't hear the tone with the speaker (speaker volume is up). If I uncheck "wait for the tone" in the modem properties, I hear it dial, but then it will beep as it waits for a response.

    I also tied using the Connection Wizard in XP to choose another ISP, but the same thing happens. Are there channels additional init that I need to put in or something?

    Sorry for the long post!


    Go to the properties of the modem.
    There you should find the Modem tab. In this tab, you can disable the option called Wait tone before dialing.

    (1) when I use the usb port on the left side of the laptop, the laptop seems to restart the same time that I plug anything into it! I called Toshiba and said to update Bios, so I did (version 240 up to 330). But as soon as I did it started to the following problem:

    new Tosh Satellite C660 laptop works fine when the power supply cord is connected, soon as directed power is removed drops internet connection, usually to the second web page (the first web page is accessible, failure occurs usually when you try to access a new page)

    When I connect the power cable, internet connectivity returns as usual!

    I've been on the Advanced page setings power management,
    I have power settings "balanced" set up, and for the realtek card wireless put the plug and batttery power to maaximum settings (before they were to the maximum for diet and balanced for battery) even if it has no impact.

  • Satellite L750 slows after plugging in the power supply

    Hello everyone

    It's almost a year since I have TOSHIBA L750-12 model q PSK2YE-05P00RPL.
    Since the beginning, I noticed strange shares: when the battery becomes low at 10% and I plug the power supply everything starts to work slowly (for example I can see frames when using the webcam)
    also, web sites load very slowly or not at all. It's doing my work on laptop almost impossible.
    When this problem occurs, there are a few bugs in Event Viewer:

    Event 37, kernel-processor-Power
    "The speed of the CPU 0 in group 0 is restricted by the system firmware. The processor is in this state of reduced performance for 71 seconds since the last report. »

    I thought it was the power supply problem or motherboard to power so I sent the laptop to the service. Technical support only changed the BIOS to version 3.60 [there is not an another atm version] and he has not solved anything.
    I searched the internet and I found that this failure can occur because of the Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology option, but unfortunately I can not disable it in the BIOS.

    I read that there was problem simillar with for example Portege R835-P84 and new BIOS helped and solved this.

    Please help :(

    PS Sorry for my English.

    I also imagine that new and modified BIOS can help with this, but if Toshiba doesn't offer it there is nothing you can do, especially with the SpeedStep technology options.

    Maybe stupid question now, but when you connect the battery change the plan power high performance is a laptop s performance difference?

  • Satellite Pro L500 - stops when the power cord removed

    Toshiba Satellite Pro L500 stops when the power cord is removed even with the battery to 100%. I removed the battery and all the indications associated with battery answer correctly. For example turns off, Toshiba Health Monitor also indicates when the battery is removed. If installed Health monitor indicates that the battery is at 100%.

    Someone please help. I have not installed anything new.


    For me, the matter is clear: the battery can't hold a charge so the laptop will be shut down because it has no power.

    I think you need to replace the battery with a new one and you can get a provider of service authorized in your country. Simply contact the guy and ask that they can tell you how much it would cost.

    You can find a list of all FSA here: > support & downloads > find an authorized service provider

  • Satellite A500 - battery light flashes when connected to the power supply

    Win 7 Satellite A500 PSAM3A-03P00E.

    Battery light flashes when connected to the power supply (intermittent fault), when I disconnect the sector and reconnect the flashing stops and battery (high capacity) continues to receive.

    Also, when battery light blinks the keyboard backlight stays on when it should white and if the backlight is turned off and the battery light starts to blink the keyboard backlight turns on, all other functions seem to work well.

    Charges of battery and the wedges load properly (when the battery flashes).


    Have you noticed this problem since the first day of purchase?
    Theoretically, it could be possible that your battery begins to malfunction
    On the other hand, an electrical problem could also be possible

    However, try this:
    Remove the battery and the AC adapter. Then press and hold button power 30 sec long.
    Then insert the battery and plug AC adapter still does that help?

    By the way: this is the BIOS updated? If this isn't the case, perform an update.

  • Satellite M30X: fans do not stop if plugged into the power supply


    I have a M30X and months fans when I'm connected to the power supply do not stop. It's also stopping often enough. However, the laptop is not hot. Do you have any idea?
    Kind regards



    If you connect the adapter to the laptop of Toshiba power saver change consumption patterns. Maybe the power mode with a different setting in the a? Basic setupa?. Please check the cooling method and change it to lower the level.

    But of course, the dust and debris could have a bad influence on fan behavior.

  • Re: Satellite P850 full face feels 'sparkling' when it is connected to the power supply


    I recently bought a P850 138.
    Whenever the power supply is connected and turned on the laptop case computer feels strange to the touch, and if you move your hand through it, as you often eventually do during the strike, etc., you get this weird 'static' y feeling.

    When you are disconnected from the power grid the sensation continues for a short while, but soon after the case feels just like normal metal again.

    I guess that something happens which is originally the case become statically charged, but does anyone have any ideas as to why what is happening? Is this a common problem?

    Any ideas?

    Thank you very much in advance for your answers

    Hi neh23

    It's the first time I read on this subject and in my opinion its definitely not a portable common behavior I think you should get in touch with a Toshiba service provider in your country to check the laptop.

  • How to change the power supply to the CD/DVD drive so that it is disabled by default?

    When running on battery I often use the icon 'Remove hardware safely' XP to 'unplug' the carpet * CD/DVD drive for Safe some battery life. (Does?) I use Fn + Tab to bring back to life. I wonder if there is a way to make my boot Notebook (M400) with the power supply to the reader off by default. Moreover, any idea where I can find the extra battery for the slot of the CD/DVD player and who the price?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hello, Robert

    If you see the start page, you will see that this support forum is not a type of support Toshiba directly but forum users. But you're not alone and many users expect that a Toshiba support team sit in the office and before writing the answers.

    In any case, there are many users of Toshiba laptops with very good knowledge and also amateurs who are trying to help the other guys in different problems and also to share own experience.

    Professionalism is not the forum but action when you need help because of physical damage or something similar. If you need assistance and competent answers each authorized partner must be able to provide the info you need. But please don t mixture and Toshiba service partner because it is not the same.

    In any case, I found the info you can use additional (second battery expansion) and it takes batteries with PA3510U-1BAL, PA3510U-1BRL room numbers. I can't tell you how much it costs, but you will find only using Google.

    Back to your first question: if I understand you just want to save more power and because of this, you want to sign out ODD. It's a nice idea, but you have clearly misunderstood something. "Safely Remove Hardware option is there to help the operating system and and say this material, a part will be removed and don t exist anymore, but it does not physically the disconnection of any other material."

    If you need more power use a second battery and enjoy your life.

    If you have any other questions you are welcome. A lot of users here M400 and I hope in the future that some of them will participate in a little more.

    Good day! :)
