Satellite Pro 4230 - does not light

I have the following problem:

A Satellite Pro 4320 will not feed, DC-in light is on (green), with inserted (quite old) battery, the quickly flashes orange, (charge of compensation, according to manual) battery. If I press the power button / stop, DC-In goes off for half a second and turns on, that of all, nothing else happens.
The power supply is 15V 4Amps one correct, I load tested it works and provides all the power, according to the specifications. It does not matter if the battery is inserted or not.

Now the question: is this a battery problem or there is a problem with the entrails of laptops (internal DC converter)? Normally, your laptop should work on the included power supply.

Best regards



> Normally a laptop should work on the included power supply.
You're absolutely right, mate. All cell phones work with power supply only, theoretically, a battery is not necessary. That's only important if you want to work without power, otherwise laptop mobile working with power supply only. No battery is needed.

So my personal opinion it of a card mother dysfunction :(

  • Why Satellite Pro A300 does not start when you press the power button?

    Suddenly my new Satellite Pro A300 does not start correctly when you press the power button. The situation is the following: when I press the power button is displayed the opening of Toshiba (Leading Innovation) and the disappers image quickly. Then there is a black screen for about 30 seconds. There is a rectangular frame with the text Microsoft Corporation under. And nothing happens however long wait.

    In order to get with the trial starting I then shut down the computer by pressing the power button until the computer turns off. ("The hard way to close")
    Now, I press the power button shortly to turn on the computer. Then, the computer starts normally with the photo to open Toshiba and after a few seconds, I wonder to open the computer in safe mode or in normal mode. I now choose to open in normal mode and the computer opens normally and is ready to work.

    What should I do to get a normal departure procedure?

    When the laptop starts normally (after choosing normal mode) stop your laptop properly using START > shut down option. Next launch should be normal.

    When the OS is moving towards the low irregularly will always ask you how to start this new (secure or normal mode).
    The same thing happen on my Satellite A300.

  • Satellite Pro A10 does not start - no hard drive



    HARD drive is visible in the BIOS?
    If this isn't the case, then this means that the HARD drive is faulty.
    Try to replace the HDD with a compatible and try again.

    Good luck

  • Satellite Pro C650 - does not start

    Hey all,.

    My Satellite Pro C650 boot not beyond a certain point. I tried to start in all modes different for example safe mode, mode of networking,

    However this proved unsuccessful, the laptop freezes and I meet a constant and regular beep at the same point every time that I try to start. I even tried to start Linux 12.04 USB to see if it's hardware or software, unfortunately is the same, which means hardware failure.

    The problem is that I don't know the bios beep codes and I can't understand what needs fixing.
    I was hoping you could help me!

    Thanks :)

    I think you need professional help with this problem. I don't know if your laptop is always guaranteed to be valid, but in my opinion, you should contact the nearest Toshiba authorized service provider and ask for help. They have special diagnostic tools and hardware malfunction can be detected and repaired.

  • Satellite Pro A40 does not start after water spilled on it


    I have a problem with the laptop of my companion. After she pours water on her, she has stopped working (no surprise really lol). I took it to pieces, right down to remove the motherboard to try to find the fault. Now when the AC is connected and batt is in place, NIP of the led, same thing happens without batt.

    BUT the computer does not light when you press the power button. Im guessing that it is a hardware failure, since water isn't really best friend elecrtics, but I was hoping someone else might have other ideas/solutions?

    I searched the toshiba site and found nothing on this laptop.

    Any help is very appreciated!

    Hello Danny

    You are absolutely right. It's probably hardware failure and I fear that the motherboard must be replaced. I recommend you contact Toshiba service partners in your country and look for info on the repair and costs.

    Good luck!

  • Satellite Pro 6100 does not start - power light flashes


    I have a Satellite Pro 6100 when I press the power button and HDD lights up briefly then powerlight blinks.
    It seems to Flash a pattern: on (2 sec) flashes (2 seconds) then off (about 8 times)

    What he told me? No fan, no display no hardrive is active.
    Food is ok because it load battery.
    I bought it as it would be something easy to fix ideas?


    It sounds bad
    Generally, the power led will blink due to a malfunction of the equipment.
    The LED provides a microcode and only the technician can read this code.
    A common user is not able to read.

    Maybe you'll be able to read this code, but you won't find any description about the meaning of the code.
    I recommend you contact the technician in your country

    But try this:
    Remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter.
    Wait severla times and then plug in the battery and plug in the AC adapter.
    If this does not help, you have aks, a complementary technician...

  • Satellite Pro M40X does not ILLUMINATE

    Hi. -.

    I have a M40X Pro Satellite that I bought 4 years ago. It works well until a few weeks ago.

    I tried to turn it on but nothing happen, nothing, no lights, no sound at all, completely dead.

    It is connected to the power supply and the power light is on, (the battery light does not work since there is a lot of time). I tried to remove the battery, unplug the power cable and after several hours or even days, try to turn it on and I got the same behavior.

    Only power if it is (the power light when you connect the AC power) but when I press the button "turn on" the laptop, nothing happens.

    My laptop isn't under warranty, so if someone could help find a solution that would be great!

    Thank you


    I have read your problem related to the failure of hardware. It seems that the motherboard is dead, no doubt, the southbridge. In any case, you should contact the service center:

    Note that the motherboard is one of the most expensive parts of the tower and don't know if it's worthy to replace, it is better to buy a used or a new laptop.

  • Satellite Pro 480CDT does not start (even in BIOS)

    Hi all

    I just hand on a Toshiba Satellite Pro 480CDT

    I had to work with the original power supply (on an inverter plugged into my 12v cars I wasn't close to 240 v power outlet)

    It worked very well, it boots into Windows 98 and I played with a few programs (Media Player and defragmentation)

    I got it defragment for about 5 minutes, while charging via the car converter, however it froze and I had to hold the power button to restart.

    When I tried to next turn on the screen remains empty, the hard drive is not turn and there is only the power LED and battery LED that lights up.

    He let me press the function key that lights up the fn LED on top of the keyboard, but then after a few presses of lighting stops.

    I opened the case and concluded that there are two batteries of the bios, the look at where they are plugged into the main Board, there is green type of corosion on the pins, I removed the plugs (who might add when it is very difficult to remove because of the coros), I cleaned the plugs (male & female) with a pen of WD40 and plugged in I got a voltmeter on them and they demonstrate tension and also show higher voltage when the power supply for laptop is connected, then it means they are load or at least tension.

    After doing this I go up the laptop, but it still suffers from the same problem?

    Please what could someone help or give me a little advice? My next event is the power supply Board but wanted to get some ideals before hand.

    Thanks in advance.


    > after doing this I go up the laptop, but it suffers still from the same problem?

    His pity to hear that your baby dead :(
    But if we move to a diagnosis of material, I doubt someone here might be able to point in the right direction if his motherboard problem, it would be really difficult to solve this problem without using special tools, circuit diagram of motherboard and of course experience

    I think you should check the modules memory vivid faulty ram could affect the laptop everything is just speculation

  • Satellite Pro A60 does not illuminate

    When I try to boot my Toshiba Satellite Pro A60, seems to be powered. A few seconds later, there is a click and it cuts.

    I tried to turn on the computer with just the power supply with the battery removed, just with no power supply and battery and power, but none of these options are making a difference.

    I also tried to clean the fan in the aspirant from the outside by a suction pipe, but even once, it did not help.
    Can help you with the Please this problem?
    Thank you.


    Turn the laptop over and unscrew the cover on the ram. Then remove the ram and try to turn it on again. If it lights, put the piston inside the laptop and try again. It does not turn on? Then your ram is dead. If yes then you can replace, or have your asp replace it. If this does not resolve the problem, there is a small plastic cover that runs along the keyboard just above the keyboard. Take this off and then unscrew the fixing screws to the bottom of the keyboard. Under the keyboard, you may have a second RAM slot. If Yes, try to remove the RAM stick and turn. It work? If this isn't the case, you probably have a problem with the motherboard. If it lights fine, then you have found the issue and can replace or continue using it without the extra RAM. Hope this helps and have a nice day.

  • Satellite Pro L300 does not illuminate

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 and I've had it for about 2 years.
    But yesterday I closed the laptop as usual. But later I went back to it and tried to turn it on. But it does not work. Instead, when I press the power button the LED next to the battery symbol flashes orange/orange 6 times and then turns off.

    Can someone tell me what it is? I tried to let it load, but that has not worked. The amber light is the only light that flashes. It does not recognize that I plugged in the charger and I don't think that the battery was flat. So I'm angry and helpless right now.

    Can someone help me please?

    See you soon.


    There are several indicators;
    DC, while running, the main battery, LED HDD/ODD.
    So I guess the power LED flashes in orange. Right?
    This means that something was wrong on the motherboard.
    Maybe power supply electronic malfunctions

    In this case, there is no much to do only mobo replacement could help to...

  • Satellite Pro 6100 does not recognize the single battery external power

    Whenever I have start Satellite Pro 6100 Win XP Pro with standard battery mounted and connected to the power supply computer laptop does not recognize the ext battery supply single supply and during 'start-up' goes into hibernation.

    By pressing the power on button laptops "wake up" and indicate that the battery is empty or may not even decide when completely loaded, then says connect the station even if still connected, looking under Toshiba console when it runs shows running on battery when still in the power of the ext?

    Is your AC adapter malfunctions or there is something wrong with the power supply to electronic s laptop.
    In the first case you could purchase a new compatible AC adapter and could check if the laptop can run successfully.
    The second possibility is a serious hardware problem, but in this case, the laptop must be checked by an authorized technician.
