Battery charging is controlled by LPC 47N249. When the AC adapter and battery pack are attached to the computer, the LPC 47N249 controls the charge on/off state and detects a full charge.

Satellite A60/ Pro A60 Maintenance Manual 1-19

1 Hardware Overview 1.10 Batteries

Battery Charge

When the AC adapter is attached, the battery is charged by off-state charge when the system is powered off or by on-state charge when it is powered on.

Table 1- 6 Quick/normal charging time

Off-state charge 8 Cell

On-state charge 8 Cell

About 4 hours max

About 4~10 hours

Off-state charge 12 Cell About 6 hours max

On-state charge 12 Cell About 6~12 hours

NOTE: The time required for normal charge depends on the power consumption by the system. Using the fluorescent lamp and frequently accessing the disk consume much power and lengthen the charge time.

Any of the following cases stops battery charge:

1. The battery becomes fully charged.

2. The AC adapter or battery pack is removed.

3. The battery or AC adapter voltage is abnormal.

Detection of full charge

A full charge is detected only when the battery is being charged by quick or normal charge. A full charge is detected when either of the following conditions is met:

1. The current in the battery charging circuit drops below the predetermined value.

2. The charging time exceeds the fixed limit.

The RTC battery provides power to keep the current date, time and other system information in memory while the computer is turned off.

4.1 General 4 Replacement Procedures

4.1 General

This chapter explains how to disassemble the computer and replace Field Replaceable Units

(FRUs). Some replacement procedures may not require you to remove all the surrounding

FRUs to replace only one FRU. The chart below shows the FRUs in the order in which they should be removed in a top-down manner, irrespective of their physical locations. The FRUs shown in the top area of the chart should normally be removed before removing the FRUs shown in the bottom area. To replace the FRUs, first identify the suspect FRU for the system failure. Next, according to this chart, determine the FRUs that need to be removed before removing the suspect FRU. After you determined those FRUs, go to the appropriate sections according to the section numbers shown in the boxes. Then start removal and replacement

How to use the chart (two examples):

• For removing the System Board

First, remove the top cover with the display assembly. Then, remove the

HDD, selectable bay module,

Bluetooth card, keyboard, and wireless LAN card, all of which are shown above the top cover with the display assembly.

• For removing the LCD Module

First, remove the display mask and

FL inverter board, both of which are shown above the LCD module.

Satellite A60/ Pro A60 Maintenance Manual 4-1

4 Replacement Procedures 4.1 General

Safety Precautions

Before you begin disassembling, read the following safety precautions carefully. Be sure to follow them while you are working.

DANGER:

1. Always use the genuine batteries or replacement batteries authorized by Toshiba.

Batteries other than those differ in specifications and are incompatible with the computer. They may burst or explode. Never heat or disassemble the battery packs to avoid leakage of alkaline solutions. Never throw the battery packs into a fire. If this is

violated, they will explode.

2. The components such as the power supply and FL inverter carry high voltages. When you partially disassemble the computer and turn on the components, use extreme care not to touch the connectors and components to avoid the risk of electrical shock. Do not

disassemble individual components during first-level maintenance.

WARNING:

1. To avoid the risk of electrical shock, turn the computer off and remove the AC adapter

from the electrical outlet.

2. Because the battery in the computer is left charged, the risk of electrical shock remains even after the AC adapter is removed from the electrical outlet. To avoid the risk of electrical shock, be sure to put off any metal jewelry or accessories such as necklaces,

bracelets, and rings before starting work. Never work with your hands wet or damped.

3. To avoid personal injury, use care to the sharp edges or corners of the components.

4-2 Satellite A60/ Pro A60 Maintenance Manual

4.1 General 4 Replacement Procedures

CAUTION:

1. Before replacing a component, make sure that the replacement component meets the required specifications. To avoid computer failures, never use components that do not

meet the specifications.

2. To avoid internal damage such as short circuits and fire, never drop metal objects such as screws, pins, paper clips, etc. into the components. When a screw is removed, be sure to replace a screw that is the same size as the original screw. Make sure that all the screws are fastened securely. Loose screws can cause short circuits, overheating,

smoke, or fire.

3. Before raising an FRU or other component, make sure that all the component cables have been disconnected to avoid the risk of electrical shock caused by accidental

contact with the energized components.

4. For AC input, be sure to use the AC adapter and AC power cable that come with your

computer or Toshiba-recommended equivalents.

5. To avoid the risk of electrical shock, make sure that all the replacement components meet the specifications of the computer and that all the cables and connectors are

fastened securely.

6. Inside the PC are components that become hot during operation (such as the CPU and cooling module). To avoid burns, let the hot components cool down before starting inspection or repair task.

Satellite A60/ Pro A60 Maintenance Manual 4-3

4 Replacement Procedures 4.1 General

Before You Begin

Before you begin disassembling the computer, keep in mind the precautions and advice in this section. Always begin disassembling from removing the AC adapter and battery pack.

Remove the optional parts and accessories as well. The procedures for removing the batteries will be explained later.

Disassemble the computer only when an abnormality has occurred.

Use only the recommended tools.

To run and store the computer, be sure to prepare a working environment that is free from:

Dust and contaminants

Static electricity

Extremely high or low temperatures and extremely high humidity

Run the diagnostic tests explained in Chapter 2 of this manual to identify the FRU that has probably caused the system failure.

Perform only the required machine operations. Use only the disassembly and reinstallation procedures described in this manual.

Place the removed components in a safe place away from the computer so that they may not be damaged or get in the way of you doing your work.

Normally, a number of screws need to be removed or replaced during disassembling. Place the removed screws in a safe place so that you can easily find the right screws for the right components.

When assembling the computer, use the specified screws to fasten the parts to the specified locations. See the appropriate explanations and figures for screw sizes.

Disassembly Procedures

The cable connectors come in these two basic types:

Pressure plate connectors

Normal pin connectors

To remove a pressure plate connector, pull up the tabs on either side of the connector's plastic pressure plate and gently pull the cable out of the connector. To reconnect the cable to the pressure plate's connector, raise the pressure plate up to a satisfactory height and slide the cable into the connector. Fix the cable to the correct position by pressing down the sides of the pressure plate so that the plate can be flush with the sides of the connector. Grasp and pull the cable gently to check that the cable is connected firmly. If the cable came off the connector, reinsert the cable by raising the pressure plate up to a satisfactory height.

Normal pin connectors are used for all the other types of cables. These connectors can be installed or removed by simply inserting them or pulling them out.

Assembly Procedures

You have to reassemble the computer after you disassembled the computer and fixed the component that caused the problem.

When reassembling the computer, keep the following general guidelines in mind:

Take your time to carry out the suggested instructions completely. Hurried reassembling can often cause problems.

Check that all the cable and connectors are fastened securely.

Before fixing the FRUs or other parts, check that the cables are not caught by the screws or FRUs.

Check that all the latches are closed securely.

Check that all the required screws are used to fix the FRUs. Using wrong screws can damage the threads or heads of the screws or does not ensure firm FRU fixing.

After installing an FRU, make sure that the FRU and computer can work normally.

Appendix A Handling the LCD Module

Precautions for handling the LCD module

The LCD module can be easily damaged during assembly or disassembly. Observe the following precautions when handling the LCD module:

1. When installing the LCD module in the LCD cover, be sure to seat it so that it is properly aligned and maximum visibility of the display is maintained.

2. Be careful to align the four holes at the right side and left side of the LCD module with the corresponding holes in the LCD cover before securing the module with four screws. Do not force the module into place, because stress can affect its performance.

Also, the panel’s polarized surface is easily scarred, so be carefully when handling it.

Satellite A60/ Pro A60 Maintenance Manual A-1

Appendices

Apx. A Handling the LCD Module

3. If the panel’s surface gets dirty, wipe it with cotton or a soft cloth. If it is still dirty, try breathing on the surface to create a light condensate and wipe it again.

If the surface is very dirty, we recommend a CRT cleaning agent. Apply the agent to a cloth and then wipe the panel’s surface. Do not apply cleanser directly to the panel.

Also, never scratch the surface.

4. If water or other liquid is left on the panel’s surface for a long period, it can change the screen’s tint or stain it. Be sure to quickly wipe off any liquid.

A-2 Satellite A60/ Pro A60 Maintenance Manual

Apx. A Handling the LCD Module Appendices

5. Glass is used in the panel, so be careful not to drop it or let it strike a hard object, which could cause breakage or cracks.

6. CMOS-LSI circuits are used in the module, so guard against damage from electrostatic discharge. Be sure to wear a wrist or ankle ground when handling the module.

Satellite A60/ Pro A60 Maintenance Manual A-3

Appendices

Apx. A Handling the LCD Module

7. Do not expose the module to direct sunlight or strong ultraviolet rays for long periods.

8. Do not store the module at temperatures below specifications. Cold can cause the liquid crystals to freeze, lose their elasticity or otherwise suffer damage.

A-4 Satellite A60/ Pro A60 Maintenance Manual

Apx. A Handling the LCD Module Appendices

9. Do not disassemble the LCD module. Disassembly can cause malfunctions.

10. If you transport the module, do not use packing material that contains epoxy resin

(amine) or silicon glue (alcohol or oxime). These materials can release gas that can damage the panel’s polarization.

Appendix F BIOS Rewrite Procedures

This Appendix explains how to rewrite the system BIOS program when you update the system BIOS.

Tools

To rewrite the BIOS, you need the following tool:

BIOS/EC/KBC rewriting disk for the computer that has renewed BIOS data.

Rewriting the BIOS

1. Set the system to boot mode.

2. Turn off the power to the computer.

3. Remove the external cable and PC card.

4. Connect an external FDD and insert the BIOS/EC/KBC rewriting disk into either the external FDD.

5. Turn on the power while holding down the [

`

~

] key (on the left of the space key).

(Keep holding down the key until a message appears on the screen.) The BIOS rewriting starts.

6. When the process is completed, eject the BIOS/EC/KBC rewriting disk and the system is automatically reset.

Appendix H

Appendix G EC/KBC Rewrite Procedures

This Appendix explains how to rewrite the EC/KBC system program when you update the

EC/KBC system.

Tools

To rewrite the EC/KBC, you need the following tool:

BIOS/EC/KBC rewriting disk for the computer

Rewriting the EC/KBC

1. Set the system to boot mode.

2. Turn off the power to the computer.

3. Remove the external cable and PC Card.

4. Connect an external FDD and insert the BIOS/EC/KBC rewriting disk into either the external FDD.

5. Turn on the power while holding down the [

`

~

] key. (Keep holding down the key until a message appears on the screen.) The EC/KBC rewriting starts.

6. When the EC/KBC rewrite is completed, the system is automatically turned off.

Note: 1. Rewrite the EC/KBS only when instructed by a diagnostic disk release

notice.

2. Connect the AC adapter to the computer when you rewrite the EC/KBC.

3. Do not turn off the power while you are rewriting the EC/KBC. If the rewrite fails, it might be impossible to start up the computer.

4. If you fail to rewrite EC/KBC, then when you next turn on the power, a message may be displayed that the contents of the EC/KBC have been erased. In this case, insert the BIOS/EC/KBC rewriting disk, and the

EC/KBC will be rewritten.

5. Normally it takes about 30 seconds to rewrite the EC/KBC. It may take 3 minutes (maximum), depending on the conditions of the computer or ICs.

The computer is not hung up. Allow sufficient time. Never reboot or turn off the power to the computer before the rewriting is completed.
