MacBook Pro :: 15" I7 Charger Connected - Battery Not Charging
Apr 29, 2010
It was working fine for about a week, but starting on monday its been occasionally saying "not charging" but today it hasn't said charging once. I checked all the connections and tried the charger from my old mbp, but still nothing.
My Macbook hasn't been able to be charged for a while now. Basically if you take the battery out while the computer is running and its plugged in, it will shut off but in a few seconds it lets me power it on without the battery in it. So normally I just put the battery back in and leave it plugged in so the battery keeps its charge. It's been at 37% for a few weeks and will not charge up, it just looses power if disconnected from the power cord.
So when I go to system profiler it says, AC Charger Information: Connected:Yes Charging:No
My battery just went down to 7 percent charge even though it had been connected to the power adapter for quite some time. At least a few days. I didn't notice that the battery wasn't charging. Now it says it is charging again, but every once in a while I notice it has gone to not charging.
Does anyone know of cases that will allow AAA batteries to be the correct size to fit in and be charged in the Apple Battery Charger? I'm thinking something along a case that just extends the metal contacts so it can be charged and then taken out to be used after charging is done. Didn't have any luck doing google searches.
About a month ago, the battery on my Macbook (the black one) started to get worse and worse, to the point where it would work if plugged into the charger, but would automatically turn off if disconnected. After much research, I bought a replaceable battery (not through Apple, but not through a sketchy website either) in hopes it would bring my laptop to some life.
The new battery is now doing to same thing as before. Working if plugged in, automatically turning off if disconnected, and always shows that it is at 0% charge. Is there anything else I can do? I know I'm due for a new laptop, but I'd really like to keep this one around for just a few more months!
The Apple one looks tempting as it comes with 6 batteries and 29€ isn't too much, plus, as usual, it looks brilliant. I looked at some 3rd party chargers as well ranging from 20€ to 40€. None of them was stunning or special by any means. Cheaper ones usually came with two or four batteries and some came without batteries. I don't really need it for else than Magic Mouse, occasionally for something else too.
I have been told by my local apple store that I might have a bad charging receptical, the port where the charger connects to the computer, so my question would be, does anybody know how much this might cost me.
Recently I have had a problem where my Macbook Unibody (Late 2009 i think) has stopped charging properly. My laptop has recently been updated to 10.6.8.
Firstly the charger seems normal i have had a few problems with it, replaced one and bought a supsicious looking replacement although i think this isnt the problem. The charger icon shows that it switches bewtween very (and i mean ludicrously, estimates roughly 20hrs for a full charge) slow charging and not charging whatsoever.
recently got hold of a Macbook Pro, Core Duo 2Ghz , all is working fine no issues except the battery does not Charge what so ever ....now it was Supplied with a 60W Power Brick , but i have since found out thats not sufficiant for a Macbook Pro .. but also came Across A Problem in System Profiler ,
Specificly the Part that deals with Power,now the battery charges fine in another Macbook Pro, so i know its not that battery as the person told me ,Here's what it says in AC Charger Information
Connected:Yes ID:0x0000 Wattage (W):0 Revision:0x0000 Family:0x0000 Serial Number:0x00000000 Charging:No
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 Pro (the newer silver models 2011) often stops charging, I have to unplug the charging pin and connect it again. It has turned it self off quite a few times on sudden power failure, mostly because it went under power while I assumed it was still charging. After that it also looses time and date settings.
i m a macbook pro(!3 inch) wid i5 pro user...suddenly one day my mac switched off n when i put it on charging the charger started blinking wid orange-green lights.noe der is no battry in it so i cant evn operate mac for settings.n its clearly not a charger problem cause i tried using othrs bt it was showing d same problem.
I calibrated my battery for the first time since Dec. When I plugged it in this morning, it took 3 hours to charge all the way, and now it's stuck on 99% full, 0:00 till completely charged, and I'm getting an error when I click on the battery in the menu bar that says "Service Battery". When I click on the error, it tells me that it may not be functioning properly and to take it to an authorized apple service retailer. Before I waste 2 hours by going to the Apple store and back, has anyone else had this problem, and is there a way to fix it without having it looked at?
Someone tripped over the wire of the MagSafe charger, and it came away from the macbook, but split the L-Shaped part in half, and left the magnetic end stuck inside the charging port, and the other part exposing the gold pins. Is there any way I can remove the magnetic part myself? Or should Apple be able to do it for me?
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've hooked my MacBook to my TV, but everytime I connect the charger it trips the electric switch in my house and shuts everything down. Very annoying... This only happens with the Macbook is connected to the TV...
Has anyone had this before and how can `i go about solving this problem?
Lately i have been noticing that my macbook will not stay charged for very long even when it is fully charged. And the most irritating thing is that when it is charging and i am using it, it will randomly shut off.
I have two ac charger cords for my PB - the one it came with and a backup. My battery is about three months old and seems to be very healthy. The problem is that the cord arbitrarily stops charging (thought it was the cord, used the backup - same thing happens). The light on the cord where it plugs in to the computer goes off and I must unplug it from the power source and replug for it to start charging again, which it always does. I thought it was the outlet on the surge protector, so I switched outlets. No improvement. I thought then that it might be the surge protector itself, so I plugged it directly into another outlet, to no avail.
