Power and the batteries

NOTE The device battery is not accessible by the user.

Your device receives its power through the AC adaptor and power cord/cable or from the system batteries (battery and real-time clock (RTC) battery). Power problems are interrelated. For example, a faulty AC adaptor or power cord/cable will neither power the device nor recharge the batteries.

Here are some typical problems and how to solve them:

The AC power light does not come on when you plug in the AC adaptor and power cord/cable.

Make sure the AC adaptor and power cord/cable are firmly plugged into both the wall outlet and the device.

If the AC power light still does not come on, check that the wall outlet is working properly by plugging in a lamp or other appliance.

114 If Something Goes Wrong

Power and the batteries

The AC adaptor and power cord/cable work correctly, but the battery will not charge.

The battery does not charge while the device is consuming full power. Try turning off the device.

The battery may be too hot or too cold to charge properly. If you think this is the probable cause, let the battery reach room temperature and try again.

If the battery has completely discharged, it will not begin charging immediately. Leave the AC adaptor and power cord/cable connected, wait 20 minutes and see if the battery is charging.

If the battery light is glowing after 20 minutes, let the device continue charging the battery for at least another 20 minutes before you turn on the device.

If the battery light does not glow after 20 minutes, the battery may have reached the end of its useful life.

The battery appears not to power the device for as long as it usually does.

If you frequently repeat shallow charge and discharge, the battery meter may become inaccurate. Let the battery discharge completely, then try charging it again.

Check the power options via your Power Plans (see

“Power

Plans” on page 75 ). Have you added a device that takes its

power from the battery? Is your software using the internal storage drive more? Is the display power set to turn off automatically? Was the battery fully charged to begin with?

All these conditions affect how long the charge lasts.

After a period of time, the battery will lose its ability to perform at maximum capacity and will need to be replaced.

This is normal for all batteries. Visit the Toshiba Web site at accessories.toshiba.com. Refer to this site often to stay current on the most recent software and hardware options for your device, and for other product information.

For more information on maintaining battery power, see

“Changing the main battery” on page 77 .
