Like two months ago, my MBP started to work really slow when not plugged to electricity, but as soon as I plug it in, my MBP works perfectly. I already sent it to apple for they to fix it, but they solved other issued except for that one. Please, any idea what could it be.
My white MacBook is not charging when plugged in. And if I take out the cord, the computer dies. I noticed this right after I had made a flight on an airplane so I'm assuming something happened while on the flight, even though I had my computer with me the whole time, and inside the case. I tried using compressed air to try and blow out any debris that might have got into the little charger port, but no luck.
My macbook is plugged into the charger, and the green light on the charger is on, but my computer says "not charging" in the top right. i've checked the charger with another computer, and it works, as well as turn off my computer, and turning it back on.
I have been using my 13" MBP with a monitor for the past few months now and I just noticed that sometimes I look up at the battery status and it is plugged in and it says in parentheses not charging. I press the button on the side of the MBP and it indicates it is at about 80%. I left the MBP at home all day plugged in and I was wondering if it is doing its own battery maintenance or what.
In the last few months I have been having trouble charging my Macbook (Early 2008). My computer is about 2 and a half years old. When I plug in my Macbook with the MagSafe power adapter, the little light that is supposed to show up green or red usually does not show up at all. Sometimes the light shows up green when it is not fully charged. Also, when my Macbook is plugged in, it does not usually start charging, though the charge on the battery will stay static. For example, I have been using my Macbook for the last 3 hours. Even though it's plugged in, the charge on the battery is still at 38%. I have tried shutting down my computer, popping out the battery, and then putting the battery back in. This allowed me to start charging my computer one time, but it obviously did not fix the problem. One time I held my Macbook and shook it up and down a couple of times, and when I plugged it in again, it started charging. Here is my hardware information:

I bought my macbook exactly two weeks ago (tomorrow) and I'm already starting to have problems. My battery is currently at 10% when not plugged in but then when I plug it in it won't charge. What is wrong with it?
I'm not sure if this is should be in hardware or software, so I apologize if this is in the wrong catagory. I have a "5,1" Late 2008 Aluminum MacBook 2.0 Ghz 2 gb RAm
I just replaced the stock 160gb hard drive with a 500 gb Seagate. Everything is working perfectly except for one odd issue: While plugged in, the MacBook says it is charging normally and appears to actually be doing so. However, when I unplug it, it shows the plug icon on the battery as it does at 100% charge and says "(Not Charging)". Power management wise it also behaves as if it is plugged in. So, as you can imagine that is quite annoying as it doesn't dim / sleep when it should if left sitting and I can't see my battery % when it is unplugged. I have looked EVERYWHERE on the net to no avail. The MacBook is no longer under warranty so no dice there. I have also checked my energy settings as well as reset the SMC.
I just noticed that my when I got my macbook plugged in, it's not charging. The icon is the one you got when it's plugged in (with the little fork-shaped thing in the middle), but instead of it saying 'charging' like when the battery isn't full, or 'charged', when it is, it just says 'Not Charging'. It's like it can see the magsafe connector inside, but the juice isn't coming through to the battery, even though the computer itself is powered by the charger since when I click on the power symbol I get 'Power source: Power adapter'.
Also, the magsafe connector itself isn't lit. It used to be green for a bit, but a much weaker green than normal, and before that it wasn't even lit--I've tried with three different wall outlets, one of which was outside my house where I usually use it (it was in a starbucks). Also, when I disconnected the magsafe to get a reading for the battery, it was only 1:35, even though the magsafe light was green (albeit a weak green). If it matters, I'm running 10.5.3. The macbook is still fairly new, bought mid-december, all updates current as I got it set to checking daily and install the minute I get the notice.
I have a black macbook. My computer wouldn't turn on, so I plugged it in and turned it on. I noticed that it said "Not Charging". I figured it would go away and start charging. I closed the computer and came back an hour later, and the light on the charger was still green and not amber. Why will my computer only turn on when plugged directly in, and why won't my battery charge? Do I need to get a new charger or a new battery.
I accidentally left it on while I was doing some chores. When I came back it was dead (no battery). So I plugged in the charger and it immediately turned bright green when its supposed to be orange first, right? MacBook says (Not Charging) but power source: power adapter, green light is on, on the Magsafe. It's running by the power source because the battery is at 0%. I've had the charger plugged in for less than/about an hour and the 0% still hasn't changed. (Not Charging) is still there too. I bought my Macbook last August 2009, so it's not even a year old.
My Macbook is old (2008) but until today has worked perfectly.My battery ran down very low and today I have switched it on but I can only do so with the mains charger plugged in. The green light is on inidcating power but my battery icon says "Not Charging" and then as soon as I remove the plug the Macbook just dies immediately.†
I have a macbook and I have been using it just fine with my nikon l120 camera up until now. I have a bunch of photos and videos from a trip that I need to upload, today. Now when I plug in my camera...it doesn't show up anywhere on my computer! It does however show that it is charging because it blinks when it is connected.
My magsafe 2 is plugged in but the light's not on. My battery status shows it plugged in, but says "battery is not charging."
I've reset the SMC several times and have been able to get it to work again, sometimes after going through the process several times. Sometimes the yellow light stays on even after I unplug the magsafe.
I have had my mac book 4 months, and it fell from my couch and cracked the case around charging port, computer works fine, just doesn't charge. Apple store says I need new logic board, how could such a short fall result in such a costly fix, couldn't it be the DC input board?
It all started this evening where I plugged my adapter into my macbook to charge. Instead of the usual bright orange light, it was a very dim orange and was barely visible and flickers occasionally. When plugged in, it stated "Not Charging". After awhile, I decided to try again but this time it was a dim green. Still not charging. I tried airing it for a bit, and tried again. This time it didn't light up at all. Just a while ago, I realized it was able to charge again (Bright Orange). However, I noticed it never seemed to turn green so I tested it out by removing my battery.
Even after removing, the lights below the battery were on and moving as if it was still charging. (Hope you understand what I mean). After a while it stopped though. So I tried draining my battery. It went till about 3hrs (at 100% its 4hrs) and I tried charging it again. Immediately after connecting it, the display went to show "Fully charged" with the bright green light. I disconnected it and it stayed at 100% for a while before changing to 90%. Sometimes it works perfectly while other times it just decides to go bonkers. I will try using a diff adapter tomorrow to see if the problem is in the adapter. (Probably is)
I bought this MacBook Pro 13 inch, Intel Core i5 in June 2011 and it is Early 2011 model and today I am charging my battery and it plugged in and it wont charge. I have had it where the screen goes black and the plug wont show a light and it wont charge. The condition of the battery is Replace Soon. I dont know what it is. ¬†
The Airport Card in my 2008 MBP 17" seems to work intermittently, sometimes when waking from sleep or restarting it shows up as "Airport Card not installed". Other times it will switch on fine. I phoned AppleCare (I have 3yr) and they made me reset the PRAM & SMC, which initially worked, but now it back to it's old tricks of not working. Not sure what to do, don't really want to send my MBP off for a week.
I have a macbook bought early 08 that just stopped charging. I've tried two chargers and neither work. This happened once before but reseting the smc worked, now neither reseting the smc or reseting the pram worked.
I don't get this. My mom's white MacBook (Intel IGP model) showed an X across the battery like it doesn't work, so I bought her a new battery for it. However, I installed the new battery and it still shows an X but it actually does work. I figured it out by accident. I thought maybe I bought a bad battery. I tripped over the magsafe and the MB stayed on... confused, I am now here. Not finding much about this.
What causes OS X to display an X across the battery icon? Doesn't this usually mean the battery is ruined? When pushing the button on the bottom of the battery, it shows five LEDs as it's fully charged and working. I unplugged it several times, and the MB stays on.
It also reduces the screen brightness and seems to go into battery power saving settings when unplugged. So how do I get OS X to see the battery? It must be charging properly as it's not hot or bulging or anything at all.
The problem is simply that it's not showing the battery information at all as though there were no battery plugged into the MacBook. But it works as though it's plugged in and all is normal?
So I have a macbook pro 2.66 ghz, purchased in august 2009, and recently i have been experiencing the trackpad missing a couple taps when i try to click on something. i sometimes restart it and uncheck and recheck the tap to click in settings, but it eventually does the same thing.
I found this update at apple.com: URL Which perfectly describes what im experiencing. Unfortunately this install is not for my "computer".
Is there anyway I can override the notice?? and if anyone has experienced the same thing, what did u do to fix it? Since it happens every now and then, i feel like if i were to take it to the genius bar they would just laugh at me...
bought another (have one already) HP laserjet2100 with 600N network card exactly the same as an old one I had which works fine when connected to tiger macbook pro intel and old G4 with 9.2.2However when put new printer into ethernet network at first could not see printer but this was sorted using HP Direct and assigning IP adress on Intel mac. Howver when I print I get code on first page followed by masses of blank pages.To solve this I downloaded ghost and gimp printers and managed to get it to print.However quality is really poor when compared to old printes fonts are jagged etc. Any ideas to get it up to speed with exactly same machine?
I have got a macbook pro and an iPhone5 .. my macbook and my iPhone connected to the same WiFi but for some reason the airplay don't work .. so I tried to use a (cable) goes from the router to the macbook .. and i turned on (sharing internet) so my macbook can become a WiFi .. from that my iPhone is connected to the WiFi (macbook pro WiFi) and the airplay was working fine .. the thing is i don't like the cable idea because my router on the first floor and my macbook on the second floor.. so any one have any tips for me .. by the way i need the airplay because i was streaming using (Reflector)

Problem: Once shut off, my Macbook pro won't turn on by pressing the power button. It is as if I must jump start the computer using the power cord. What is interesting is that if I push the power button (without the power cord plugged in) the macbook won't turn on, then, when I plug the power cord in, the computer magically turns on without my PRESSING the power button. It is as if the computer knows it has been told to turn on but is waiting for more electricity.¬†
When the computer is on, The power button also doesn't react when I press it. As recall, on macs, pressing the power button quickly creates a pop up menu that asks if:¬†
a. you want to shut down the computer b. restart the computer c. put the computer to sleep¬†
This computer will shut off if I hold the power button down but does not give me the pop up options.¬†
Battery appears to be in good health. Though it has been through 780 cycles. Coconut battery says that the battery is fine.¬†This Macbook Pro's Sd slot stopped working as well.¬†
I have the very first MacBook (1.83GHz, white). My brother tested it with his charger, which works fine for his MacBook, and he said it flashes a very dim green when plugged in, and the MacBook will not charge or turn on. Could it be a DC in-board issue? What could it be?
