Has anybody else been experiencing problems with Toshiba power cords fusing? I've had four burn out on my Satellite L750D in the past 12 - 18 months. What's more, there is a notification that Toshiba was having problems on its built-in notification system. The original cord fused and was replaced with a unit that was clearly labelled "Replacement AC Adaptor" instead of "Toshiba AC Adaptor". I had to buy that one because the original was out of warranty. The replacement fused within weeks and was replaced free of charge. The replacement of the replacement was similarly marked, and it lasted about six more months before it also fused. Worse, the wires on the sharp end (the AC end) pulled free from the enclosure. That was replaced by a genuine Toshiba model again. It lasted about four or six months and fused last week when I was working on-site at a theatre. I have had to buy a non-genuine generic replacement made by Belkin. The non-generic has a 12 months warranty, whilst the Toshiba models have a 3 months warranty.
I'm not a happy camper. Even though I use the laptop infrequently, I'm a bit concerned when a large multi-national electronics company outsources its manufacturing to China and serves up dodgy products.
