I have a toshiba satellite c655-s52006 and the laptop will not charge the battery despite being plugged in. I have tried new batteries and chargers but, neither of those are the problem and I have tried  unplugging the power cable, then removing the battery holding the power button for 30 seconds and then turning the laptop back over, plugging in the power cord, and trying to boot.  That did not work either.  Any ideas what the problem could be? I know it has to be an internal problem.  Thanks for any help or suggestions.

There is a possibility that the cable between the DC in Jack and the Motherboard has gone bad.


      When You look at Yours does the end where the AC Adapter plugs in look OK like the example above and is it pushed into the laptop? These have a groove on them that keeps them where they should be. The Jack being pushed in was a common problem for a while. What would happen is that the ears on the jack would break off. I replaced a fair amount of these under warranty and off warranty in the past.


I would call tech support at Toshiba and see if they have extended the warranty for this problem. I have seen that happen in the past.


I searched Google using this as the search c655-s52006 DC in jack


Good Luck

It could be an issue with the charging port.  If you have a docking station you could try charging on the docking station.


Other than that there may be an internal board that has failed.  Either way, this is above the skill level of the average user.
