Tecra 8000 won't start after disassembly
Posted on 2010-09-06
I have a Toshiba Tecra 8000 I keep around for minor and simple utility, since it's the only laptop I have with a serial port.
Anyway, the a/c adapter jack had developed a cracked solder joint and would intermittantly drop power, so I disassembled the unit to re-solder the joint.
After reassembly, it won't power up. When I plug the a/c adapter into the unit, the a/c light comes on green for a few seconds, goes out, then begins to blink once a second in amber. I disassembled the laptop again and insured that all connectors were tight and everything was plugged in. Also, I re-seated the memory and hard drive; all with no results.
I've searched around the web, but can't find anything on what the blinking means.
