Toshiba Satellite Pro R%) wont power up. The white light flashes 5 short, one long and two short but nothing happens. Tried the remove battery, reconnect power cable suggested fix but nothing changes. Any solutions would be gratefully received. Thanks.
Thanks for the prompt reply. The laptop is about 3 years old and has not had the back off yet. Don't think it's a battery or supply side problem as the blinking light persists for hours when the laptop is disconnected from the power supply. I've emailed Toshiba support and am awaiting a response.
Ended up taking laptop to repair shop. It was judged to be uneconomical to repair. Tech guy said some older Toshiba laptops are made of cheap and unreliable components allegedly. Toshiba customer support failed to respond to any of my emails sadly. Wont purchase any of their products again. Thanks all for the advice.
