MacBook Pro :: Charger Plugged In - Status Still (Not Charging)

Jun 26, 2010

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.

MacBook Pro :: Magsafe 2 Is Plugged In But Battery Status Is Not Charging

Jun 25, 2014

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.

MacBook :: Charger Plugged But Says "Battery Is Not Charging"

Jun 14, 2012

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!

MacBook Pro :: Charging Status Stuck?

Aug 26, 2014

So I had my MacBook Pro charging, and it said it was on 59%. For some reason, it had been stuck at 59% for a while. I highlighted the power readout in the menu bar, and it said 20:00 until full. I unplugged the charging cable and plugged it back in, then it read 89% full and charging.

MacBook Pro :: Charger Not Charging

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.

MacBook :: No Charging At All When Plugged In

Dec 11, 2009

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.

MacBook :: It Won't Turn On Unless Charger Is Plugged In

Mar 11, 2012

I have an early 2008 Macbook and it's been running pretty good up until this afternoon.  Now I'm having what is apparently not all that uncommon a problem, where my laptop will only remain turned on for as long as my laptop is plugged in. The second I remove the charger it turns off, and it won't turn back on again until I plug the charger in again. I had bought a replacement battery not all that long ago so I'm not sure if that would be the issue. It could be related that last night I installed more RAM into my laptop. I say could be because I was using the laptop NOT plugged in for the rest of the night and most of the this morning without any problems. It wasn't until this afternoon when I started using my laptop again that the problem arose. Could this be a delayed reaction to the RAM installation or is it just a coincidence and there's a problem with my battery? 

Here's the info from System Profiler:

MacBook Pro :: Not Charging When Plugged Into Monitor?

Oct 25, 2010

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.

MacBook :: Plugged In And Connected But No Charging

Nov 6, 2010

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:

MacBook :: Its Not Charging But Charger Looks Normal

Apr 30, 2012

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.

MacBook Pro :: No LED Light On Charger, And It's Not Charging As Well

Jun 24, 2012

All the time the charger for my 2011 Macbook Pro has worked perfectly fine, but suddenly today, this morning, it stoppet working.

I tried to unplug it, and plug it back in, but there's no LED light on the charger, and the battery information at the top-right corner of my computer says "Not charging".  

When I look closely, I can see a very dim green light, but you can barely see it.

The computer itself registers that the charger is connected, by increasing the brightness a bit, but no charging. I already tried the SMC restore thing

MacBook Pro :: Retina 2014 Gets Really Hot / Even When Charger Is Not Plugged In

Sep 2, 2014

I purchased a MacBook a couple of days ago and it has been fine. However, today I've realised that the back of it at the bottom is getting really hot, even when the charger is not plugged in. I am not using powerful apps either.Sometimes it can almost be too hot to touch for more than a couple of seconds. This happens on any surface, whether it's on my wooden desk or not.

The back getting hot also heats up the rest of the Mac to some extent. does it need seeing to and if so will I be charged?

MacBook Pro :: Will Not Charge Even When Charger Is Plugged In And Working

Dec 4, 2014

I have been using my MacBook pro for a lot of film editing and motion graphics. Recently, I noticed that my battery kept going down, even when charging. I thought nothing on it and kept using it. After around 4 hours, the battery went from 90% to 23% WHILE plugged in. This got me nervous. When I plug in the MagSafe charger, the light comes on and I get the "charging" symbol in my toolbar. The light turns orange and then, after a few minutes, the power starts to go down instead of up. 

The laptop does charge, but only when I am running no application, when the screen is shut or when the laptop is powered off. Bear in mind that right now, I am on Firefox, that is the only application open, yet the charge is still going down. I assumed it was because I was using Premiere CS6, After Effects CS6 and Cinema4D, but now even when they are not open, the batter will not charge when I am using the laptop. 

I am currently only running Firefox and Finder. Now the laptop is charging as usual. However the second I open up Premiere, After Effects etc, it goes down.

MacBook Pro :: Runs And Starts When Charger Is Plugged In?

MacBook :: Showing Its Plugged In And (Not Charging) / While Unplugged

Oct 11, 2010

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.

MacBook :: System Plugged In But Battery Not Charging

Jun 2, 2008

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.

MacBook :: Computer Turn On When Plugged In But Not Charging

Mar 28, 2010

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.

MacBook Pro :: Charger Often Stops Charging - Need To Reconnect

Jun 9, 2012

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.

MacBook :: Constant Drone Of Bass When Charger Plugged In

Nov 20, 2010

Whenever my MacBook has the charger in, there's constant 'drone' of bass from the subwoofer that my laptop is connected to, but as soon as I take the charger out the noise stops. Is there any way to stop this from happening (ie moving the cables round?) or is it just something I'll have to live with?

MacBook Pro :: External Speaker Buzz When Charger Plugged In

Apr 19, 2009

I've noticed a faint buzzing sound through my external speakers when a charger is plugged in to the laptop. Removing the charge kills the noise and makes the sound crystal clear again. Doesn't bother me to much, but as my uni-macbook pro is plugged in most of the time I can see this near constant buzz getting on my nerves a bit in the future. Any ideas, looking back I experienced the same thing with my macbook.

MacBook Pro :: Why Is 15" Beeping Intermittently When The Charger Is Plugged In

Apr 28, 2012

I recently bought a late 2011 15" macbook pro. Lately it emits a single beep every 5 minutes while it's running charger power. It emits the beep whilst charging and when the battery is full and the charger is still in. I've done a hardware test which didn't detect any hardware problems. The battery appears to be in good health and so does the charger.
