Makely, start by doing this Turn off the laptop then remove the battery and the charger.

Connect the charger back leaving the battery out.

If it is just a simple power glitch then, it will be resolved. Let us know what happens.

Makely, the T-130 series had a recall for a faulty harness. Check to see if this applies to your computer "Certain Satellite T135, T135D and Satellite Pro T130 laptop computers have been manufactured with a potentially faulty DC-In harness. These computers will have model/part numbers beginning with PST3AU, PST3BU, or PST3LU. " If so, I'd give Toshiba a call and see if they can still help you. No you do not need to send it to a repair center. If you are halfway handy, follow this video to get to it. You most certainly do not need to replace the LCD as previously suggested or implied:-).

Not something you would want to replace your self there are many connections and the back has to come off the screen to replace it I would use a A+ certified Technician who has experience with this repair. I have done them however I am in Gainesville, Fl
