Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 Laptop ?

Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 won't charge battery.

\015 I have a Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 laptop that says it is plugged in and charging but never charges the battery. The battery icon, when moused over, says "plugged in/charging - battery 0%". I bought a new battery to no avail. Will updating BIOS help? Power jack seems to be intact and fine. Coincidentally it is just out of warranty. Only works when plugged in. Dies when unplugged (dead battery).\015

My battery is charging now. As per your say to remove the battery and check to see if the prongs are dusty or if it is blocking the main connector or anything else. So, i removed the battery and checked and it was quite dusty so i removed the lint and dust from it. Now it's starting to charge. Now it's at 19%.....Thanks you're the genius
Sadly, it sounds like you need a new system board for this. Something's wrong in the charging circuitry so that the battery never gets charged. But the power jack and other power circuits are OK since the unit comes on with the adapter connected.

It's possible that there are just some bad solder connections at the contacts (not uncommon) or a fuse has opened, but it's nearly impossible to get electronic repairs done on laptops. Most service shops won't attempt to troubleshoot and repair this sort of problem to component level because of the lack of service literature and time involved. They'll just want to switch out main boards. Even under warranty this is all they'd do.

If the thing is really "just" out of warranty you may have some luck if you call the manufacturer's customer service line at (800) 457-7777. If you're outside the US you can look up the appropriate number at their website.

My Toshiba Satellite M50 laptop wont turn on.. the battery has lost it's charge, and the AC adapter no longer seems to provide any juice. Is this likely a problem with the adapter, or the laptop itself? I've read that the Toshiba Satellite line has problems with power supply, and that this is a fairly common issue on older models. (mine is now about 3.5 years old). If it is a computer problem (and not an adapter problem), is it worth spending the money to have it repaired? Thanks!
