Having problems with your Toshiba Tecra 8100 Notebook ?

Toshiba Tecra 8100 doesn't charge

\015 My Toshiga Tecra will not charge with the A/C adapter unless I manipulate the cord where it plugs into the socket on the back of the laptop. It will work fine if I hold it in the "correct" position. I am able to determine that it is in the "correct" positon by observing the 2 green lights. I have determined that 2 green lights mean that I am charging. What is the solution?\015

Answers :

Good morning, Steve!
Plain and simply, you have one of two problems.

First, the power socket is loose or defective. A loose socket will usually allow you to wiggle it around when the cord is inserted. Not a lot of movement, but some. There should not normally be any movement. Whether it is loose, or defective, the motherboard will have to be removed for replacement/re-soldering. This is not an uncommon problem.

Second, The A/C adapter cord has a broken wire in it. This is most easily repaired by replacing the cord if separate from the adapter, or replacing the adapter if the cord is not removable.
If you are adventuresome, you may be able to cut part of the covering off of the cable and repair it.
