Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A75-S229 Notebook ?

Will not charge - Toshiba Satellite A75-S229 Notebook

Answers :

With both above posts above included I want to add my experience with 3 Toshibas.
\015\0121. The A75 series was very prone to the power supply becoming loose on the motherboard. Those who are moderately good at DIY projects can resolder this. There are good photos elsewhere to show how. A loose connector will cause the power LED on your computer to flicker, sometimes the machine will turn off, etc. because the AC supply is unpredictable. Unfortunately, Toshiba and others may sell you a NEW power supply, which then can give you a second, and different, problem. The new power supply may not produce enough AMPS for the A75
\015\0122. The A75 series is VERY energy hungry and must have a power supply of 19v and 6.3 AMPS. The amps is CRUCIAL. The newer Toshibas run on 3.4 amps and a replacement power supply of the wrong size will show a green LED for power, it will charge your Battery in the system off( i.e computer plugged in but turned off mode) but it will not allow windows to run, even though it will allow you into BIOS setup. This combination means you have to charge the battery in the OFF mode and then when the computer runs, it is actually running from the battery, not 120v AC. The battery then runs down and the sytm shuts off.
\015\012So look at the Toshiba Label on the bottom of your laptop and read the correct voltage and AMPS!!! The 6.3 AMP power supply is BIG (6.5x2.5x1.5 inches) and is available new online for about $27.00. This problem solved my power problems on both an A75-S2292 and an A25.
\015\012Good luck
There are several possible reasons why the laptop won't charge. It could be the power adapter, battery or the power jack.

1. Remove the battery first from the laptop and then connect the power adapter slowly to the power jack and turn the laptop on. If the laptop turns on without any problem, then you would know that the power adapter and the power jack are working correctly.

2. Now, try to use another battery. If you could not find another battery to use for testing, then contact the manufacturer to test your battery.

If your laptop is still under the warranty, take advantage of it.

Have a great day!

Hi. My notebook (Toshiba Satellite A75-S229) is having overheating problems. Every time the notebook overheats, it shuts down...just like that (I know that's what overheating means).
