Toshiba Technical Support……
I have a TOSHIBA L675D-S7049 Laptop…that I unfortunately loaned to my grandson for the last semester….apparently he lost the powers source and purchased what he figured was a replacement…..19.5 Volt 46 watt output…
This figures to be in the area of 2.35amps output to run the c omputer and charge the battery if left long enough to recover from the actual load excess that the computer can create with protected use of external USB powered devices and the DVD drive as only a youngster can achieve…….
In any event he subsequently ran that battery dead (I mean DEAD) or dry in the NICAD materials internally….IT STOPPED CHARGING and he purchased another Nicad 10.5 volt 4800 battery as a replacement….Upon installing it he found it WOULD NOT CHARGE….
I assumed it was insufficient power bsupply and bought him a 19.5 Volt 120Watt
Version I was sure would charge band/or run the Laptop…..it too refuses to charge
I noted that the last update from Toshiba has a BIO’s change that relates to this problem…however the Laptop will not run or boot from the new battery even with the 120 watt power source connected….the white power light is on and the battery light is steady orange….
Is there a work around here?…in desperation I found the original battery and split it open…charged it up from an outside adjustable power source and the LAPTOP DOES WORK WITH THE 120WATT POWER SUPPLY AND THE EXTERNALLY CHARGED BATTERY….but the machine indicates (Zero Battery and no charging)….
Thank you for your time…Richard Buggs ([email protected]
