I've got toshiba satellite p75-a7200 and it won't start up.

It all started when I accidentally plugged the laptop off the charger while the battery was taken off. It just didn't want to start on the first try. Then I've tried unplugging it and holding the power button for 1-3min and nothing happend when I tried to power it on, still black screen. Then I've repeated the process serval times and I've got it to work. The next few days it worked flawlessly.

Yesterday while I was going to bed I restarted my laptop, the next morning I found it not booted only black screen tried the steps I've done before and no luck.

This happened me two years ago and because I had warranty sent it to factory they fix it. Now I don't have warranty and I want to be sure that there is nothing I can do before I take it to someone to repair it. Please help me to turn it on, black screen and no backlight no Toshiba logo nothing, only the led laps shoving that it's powered on and that it's got power.

Thank you
If you have greenlight on battery, and no boot, then you can try the battery trick.

you must unplug the ac power convertor. Unplug it so it makes two parts, and unplug it from the wall. Set it aside.

Take your laptop, and take the battery out. Then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Now put it all back together, and try it. If it works, it works. If it doesn't you must take it to a technician!

I have said it once, I will say it again. IT!

Thank you, ac3mark 6

If you have to unscrew screws for the battery, it is a netbook variant, and those things will not be rectified by this method or procedure. Those devices are built to break. If it doesn't boot, take it back, or save for a new one!
Worked for me

You need a technician then. Did you take the power cord apart to make two pieces?
Thanks guys for a nice tip.
