Why is my power button not working?

I recently got an old Toshiba satellite L650 from a family member. It’s battery didn’t have much strength (I mean a full charged battery would drain in 10 mins). So, I used to plug in an use it like a PC. One morning when I plugged in, the indicator LEDs (lights that get lit when plugged in or when it’s charging) lit but the power button wasn’t working. No matter how many times I click or how hard I click. I removed the battery and plugged it in. Still the same.

Anyone else experienced this problem? If yes, can it be fixed without power button replacement?

Please reply ASAP, I can’t buy another for months.

Hi Fazeel!

I’d suggest trying to gently clean the switch with compressed air or high concentration isopropyl alcohol before anything else. If that doesn’t seem to help, try opening the laptop and reseating the power button, and checking for any loose connections, you can find the service manual for your machine here. If that fails, you may need to replace the power button board, which shouldn’t be a very expensive part. Best of luck, and happy fixing!
