  1. Toshiba Satellite L305-5955, Ive taken apart and replaced power jack. Not directly soldered to motherboard. While still apart, and battery out/in, connected power supply and still absolutely no response. Power supply is NOT original, and slightly different specs, i.e original 19v..6.3A

    current 19v..3.1A

    Almost certainly the problem is that the current rating is wrong, if the laptop needs
    6.3 A of current, it won't function on less (just as you can't use a 3A fuse for a kettle!)
    Unfortunately it must be the right current rating, I know, I've been caught that way too!
    Maybe you can exchange it? :)

    Thanks Dr. John, I'm waiting on the OEM power supply to come in the mail still.
