Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A305D-S6848 Notebook ?

Charger blinking not charging, my orginal charger stopped working due to a damaged cord, I bought a replacement and all it does is blink on my computer while supposedly charging, after 4 hours, it is still blinking and not enough power to even start the laptop. Help


Answers :

Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
\015\012If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
\015\012This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Charge problem! My Acer Aspire 5560 laptop is only a year old.
