My Satellite Pro 6100 just stopped working - there is an orange light blinking continuosly and I can't turn it on or off. Also it does not respond to the power supply being connected (AC adaptor). I do not have a battery pack for it! Help!:cry:

There is a design flaw with this model and a there is a class action law suite in the US.

Basically there is a connector between two boards that flexes as you pick up the laptop and move it around. After a while this connector breaks a bit disconnecting two of the main boards in the system. If you take it to an authorized service center they'll tell you to replace the main board.

Toshiba won't admit that this is a problem, but I believe that the law suit is finding in favour of the laptop owners at this point.

I had one and had to replace it. In Canada they haven't had as much success with the law suite but there is a good chance as they will most likely use the US decision as a precedent.

Thank-you for this information! I actually got my laptop to resume working by taking the battery out and putting it back in! Do you know where I can find more info. on the lawsuit?
