Tags: Power Toshiba Laptops Last response: June 12, 2005 1:14 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share Anonymous Laptop Expert June 10, 2005 11:18:27 PM Archived from groups: comp.sys.laptops (More info?) My TOSHIBA SATELLITE 1800 P3 1100, 246Mram, etc.. is dying Would anyone have the blink codes to help diagnose it? Or a link? It just sits there and wont start.. BLINKING, BLINKING. . . .. It's only 4 years old, not ready for the boneyard yet.. Poor thing started shutting down randomly, being hard to restart.. After one last good run for 24hours, occasionally rebooting itself, but always comming back- It went totally inert! ESC, F1, F2, ~, &or F12 with power button does nadda.. took it apart, undid the bios battery.. nadda.. checked fan/heat sink assembly, a BIT of dust, fan good, plenty of thermal paste, back together.. nadda... Power supply/regulator etc part of the motherboard... Powering it with the adaptor, it still charges the battery, after awhile, battery light goes from amber to green.. But if you hit the power button.. NADDA.. a few cryptic blinks of the power light, which cant be ever stopped by holding the power button down for 10/15 secs.. Only total unplug/battery remove will stop it.. SHOULD have flashed the bios when I had the chance.. found out a lot about the buggy 1800 bios and power mngmt/hibernate Too late now.. ALso heard about frying 3.3v pcmcia cards.. Also heard about lotsa folks getting replacement mboards from toshiba one after another, after another.. But no indication anyone EVER found what was behind this pattern.. No blink error codes found in searches.. So sad.. b under score helling mail of great heat etc More about : toshiba satellite 1800 blink codes | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Anonymous Laptop Expert June 12, 2005 1:14:08 PM Archived from groups: comp.sys.laptops (More info?) Does the information in this message http://groups-beta.google.com/group/comp.sys.laptops/ms... help any? I suspect that the blink codes are different for each range of machines so this may not be applicable, but you should at least be able to determine whether you are getting an 8-bit code.
