MacBook Pro :: Magsafe Adaptor Not Working Fine / Smells Pretty Warm Like Burning

Jan 6, 2011

My Magsafe adaptor is so hot right now that it almost burns me to hold it. It also smells pretty warm, like a heater. This can't be normal can it?

Should I be alarmed? My 13.3" UMBP is only 3 months old...

Macbook Pro 2.2. Is there a way to replace just the magnetic area. One of the electric pins inside is not springing out. The connector ends up getting warm and now it will not even charge.

MacBook :: Palmrest Getting Real Warm / Gets Warm During Processing

Jan 3, 2009

On my second macbook and notice a difference in this one as opposed to the first one (although in all fairness i didn't use my first one all that much as i had to return it because of bad vibrations). I have no programs running and all I'm doing is lightly browsing the web (craigslist, macrumors, gamefaqs). My temps are 42C and approx. 1801rpm. I think this is normal, but my palmrest really warms up. Not to the point I can not use the notebook...just wondering if this is normal...

MacBook Pro :: When Connecting To An External Monitor, Will There Be A Quality Difference Between Using A DVI Adaptor Or A HDMI Adaptor

Jun 18, 2012

I am looking to connect my macbook pro to an Acer G24 monitor, but am not sure what best way to do it.The resolution of the monitor is 1920x1200, and it is a 24" screen, with VGA, DVI, and HDMI ports.My macbook pro is the late 2011 entry model.  

Will there be a difference in the quality of the picture on my external monitor, depending on whether I connect using a HDMI cable or a DVI cable? I will have to buy an adapter for each of these, to plug into the mini DVI port on my mac, will this alter the quality of the picture at all? If I were to buy an Apple Tv, would I be able to plug it straight into my monitor using a HDMI cable? If so, how would I manage the audio, as my monitor does not have speakers. Would using a thunderbolt cable (with HDMI adaptor) increase the quality of the picture of my monitor?

MacBook :: F3 And F8 Not Working Fine / Working As Play And Pause Keys

Oct 17, 2010

F3 and my right shift key have suddenly become play/pause keys in addition to their original functions. My F8 doesn't really do anything anymore and does not even light up in Keyboard View. I've tried to use Sizzling Keys, and reset Keyboard Shortcuts but the problem still persists. It seems to affect most music playing programs (iTunes and Vox.

MacBook Pro :: Itunes Not Working Fine - IR Sensors Stops Working

Nov 14, 2009

I've noticed that occasionally my IR sensor stops working, and no longer responds to changing the volume, skipping the track in iTunes, etc. It can be resolved by going into Security prefs, disabling and re-enabling the IR sensor. This is annoying, however, and I'm wondering if it's a known issue that might be fixed.

I noticed that when you disable and re-enable the IR sensor, the last few remote button pushes you made while it was broken come through in a burst.

MacBook Air :: Internet Not Working On Late 09 - Working Fine On All Other Devices

Apr 25, 2012

My Late 09 MacBook Air has been working a treat, not a spot of bother. All of a sudden, about 5 minutes ago, I've gone to go online to download some research papers (I'm *trying* to write an essay) and it won't load anything. Not even my Twitter app. It is connected to the right network, which is working absolutely fine on every other device in the house (windows computers, iphone etc). I've turned it off and on twice, the way that us clueless folk do.. now I don't know what to do.

MacBook Pro :: Old MagSafe Charger Not Working?

May 10, 2012

Ok, so i have the newer magsafe charger (The one thats slim and silver), but its faulty at times, so i looked on amazon and bought the cheapest Macbook charger i could find, i found one of the older ones (the ones that look like a square and are white), so i bought it. The moment it got here, i plugged it in and connected it to my macbook. The light on the charger went really bright green, it was so bright it reflected over itself, i didn't really care, though. So then i unplugged it and moved to another room, but it stopped working. The newer type charger (the slim, silver one) still works fine, but is still faulty.

I've already reset the SMC a number of times, still no luck

Hardware :: Macbook Pro MagSafe Adapter Not Working

Feb 1, 2010

My Magsafe adapter for my Macbook Pro all of a sudden stopped working. It's no longer charging my MBP. I've noticed usually when charging my MBP if i listen to the adapter it will give the sound like very small motor or gears are running. Now it just sounds like a long beeping sound. I was wondering if this is some known defect, because I made an appointment with the Genius bar for tomorrow and from what I have heard Apple is known for replacing defected parts even if they are out of warranty.

MacBook Pro :: Magsafe Adapter Light Not Working

Jul 8, 2010

I had my original MBP charger replaced a while ago because the magsafe adapter light was not working. (but it charged the computer fine, weirdly enough) Then, about a month ago, the light on that one went out too. The apple store replaced it with one of the new MBA chargers style. That one worked for about a day, and now intermittently goes off. What is wrong here?

MacBook Pro :: Charging 13 Not MagSafe Related + Isight Not Working?

May 6, 2012

Having weird problems with my MacBook Pro 13 (MacBookPro5,5).  I bought this needing repair and replaced the LCD, the LCD Glass, the Camera/mic cable, and bought a used battery because the old one showed "Service Now".  Just when I thought putting all this work in would get me going, I ran into two different problems that are driving me crazy. The battery will not charge with any magsafe attached (I have quite a few).  The only way I can get it to finally charge is to remove the bottom cover, unplug the battery, and use a new, l-shape 85W Power supply to get it to charge again,  It charges ONLY until I remove it.  Once I remove the power suppy...even for a second, I will not light up again and it will go on battery power until it disappates (then I start all over ).  I've tried every reset in the book, so it has nothing to do with the PMR or SMC (or however they are named).  Also, before anyone asks...the old "Service Now" battery behaves exactly the same way .The isight camera STILL does not work, even with the new cable.  Furthermore, I had another cover for the same unit with a camera in it and its own cable and tried to use the camera with that setup, and it still did not work.  My guess is there is either an issue with logic board or the cable connector on the logic board. 

The Apple Hardware test passes perfectly every time I run it (quick and extended). Disk is fine...checked it with drive genius and disk drill.  I am open to suggestions if anyone has them.  I'm guessing this is out of warantee, nor was I the original owner.   Anyone have any ideas?  Open to anything at this point.

MacBook Pro :: Leaving Connected To The Working Magsafe Isn't Add Numbers Up To Cycle Count

May 22, 2012

Is it true that when we charged 100% battery and it says on AC power, does it LITERALLY do what it say? i mean the power of macbook pro is not provided by battery but by magsafe instead. is it?last thing, leaving the macbook connected to the working magsafe isn't add numbers up to cycle count right? and is it okay to charge the macbook pro all the time and only using it when we could't find AC power outle?.

MacBook Pro :: Superdrive Stopped Working - Fine Before Installing Lion

Mar 31, 2012

I have a 2 year old MacBook Pro and the superdrive has stopped working, it won't take discs in as if there is one already inside but iTunes or the dvd player doesn't recognise that there is a disc inside and if there is it can't be ejected, I have tried shutting down and restarting while holding down the trackpad, as recommended on some forums but that has done nothing. It might be a huge coincidence but the drive was working fine before I installed lion?

MacBook :: Charger Getting Extremely Hot - Smells Bad

Aug 18, 2009

My macbooks charger, its a white macbooks charger, which is the same watts as my unibodies, is getting extremely hot when I use it on my unibody. It never was this hot and IDK why it is like this. It smells like a hot iron when I smell it up close and I'm scared. I'm running vista on my unibody with 2gb ram and I know that vista support is crappy for macs even with boot camp, so it gets hot alot but I don't know why its doing this. My mom is using my unibodies charger for her white macbook.

MacBook Pro :: No Startup Chime On Late 2008/OS Sound Is Working Fine?

Jul 3, 2009

Here's a bit of a strange one, noticed over the last couple of days that the start up chime was getting quieter, then today no sound what so ever when turning it on.

Now from my understanding of it, the chime is a bit like a POST beep on a PC? Hear it once and every thing's fine? Otherwise the MBP is booting up fine, dual booting it and have sound in OS X and Win 7?!

Suspect I may have a HDD issue, as had to run chkdsk /f /r the other day and had to stop it after 12 hours as it was still on stage 4 of 5 @ 18%, and it seems to be running slower, also the HDD is becoming more vocal.

I'm going to run a full AHT on the unit, was just wondering if anyone else has come across something like this before?

MacBook Pro :: Screen Shot Not Working Fine / Pre-dominantly Purple Color Appears

I am taking screen shots using both Apple+Shift+3, Apple+Shift+4, and SnapNDrag, and the same results turn up each time.


The pre-dominantly purple color is the same purple as my wallpaper. The rest of the stuff (the white lines, the gray on the left)-- I have no idea.

MacBook Pro :: Audio POP Before Hearing Actual Sound / System Sounds Not Working Fine

Mar 31, 2009

Here is whats happening: my 3 y.o. 15 MBP is connected to external speakers (Bose MusicMonitor) and every time there is a sound, any system sound, say an email in, a volume chirp, or a Skype chirp, anything at all, I hear an audible POP, before hearing the actual sound, in fact the POP sort of overlays the sound. I hear the second POP sometimes, after the sound has sounded, so to speak, and sometimes the second one does not happen at all. To me it reminds me of the Pioneer Amp my dad used to have in the 70's, when you first turn that thing on, it would produce an audible POP. So, back to to this, it sounds like an amplifier POP by being awaken by the system, and I'm inclined to think it is the MBP's audio "amplifier" on its board. Oh, btw, both the speakers and the MBP's volume is set to low.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Not Working Fine / System Ignores Hard Clicks For Some Minutes

Oct 6, 2009

I have a Unibody MBP (Late '08 - first model) running Snow Leopard. After the installation of SL and the upgrade to 10.6.1 (which I did in the same days), I have problems with my trackpad.

Basically, every once in a while the system ignores hard clicks for some minutes: if I tap it, the click is registered. If I press it down the click is not registered.

I do not think it's hardware-related: nothing happened and the noise/pressure/feeling are the same as before.Is there anyone else with a similar problem?

OS X Mavericks :: IMessage Not Working On IPad Mini Or MacBook Pro / Works Fine On IPhone 5s

Sep 12, 2014

I haven't been able to send or receive iMessages on my Macbook Pro or my iPad. They do not receive any incoming messages or have the ability to send out any messages. Every time I try to send a message to a phone number REGISTERED WITH IMESSAGE, this error message pops up. Even though iMessage refuses to work on both my iPad and my Macbook, it has been working flawlessly on my iPhone. Every number that I try (and fail) to send an iMessage to on both my iPad and my Macbook, I have been successfully able to send a message to on my iPhone with no problem.  

This is what gets me: I have signed in to my Mac and my iPad with several other Apple IDs and iMessage works FINE when there is another Apple ID involved. There is no problem when someone else signs in using their Apple ID. So far, the only thing that has been affected is iMessage. All other aspects of iCloud work great. FaceTime hasn't stopped working once, for example. 

I have had two separate cases with Apple Support about this issue. I have brought all my machines to the apple store TWICE, and they still couldn't figure out what was wrong.

MacBook Pro :: Monitor Display Not Working Fine / Horizontal Scan Lines And Black Out Occasionally

Jul 9, 2009

So I had a recently purchased 17" BTO with the 7200RPM drive that worked great, but with one issue - the display would have horizontal scan lines and black out occasionally. So I called up Apple and eventually managed to get a cross-ship set up(they let me hold on to my current unit, charge my credit card and send me a second brand new 17" unit as a replacement,and then refund me for the second 17" after I send back the defective unit).

Anyway, the replacement unit looks great, but with one issue - there's a very small light dent on the bottom panel(maybe about the size of a dime). I was annoyed but don't think this is worth having to exchange, since I could probably just unscrew the panel and pop it back into place.

However, what really got to me was the fact that my replacement unit was slightly louder than my original - my original is so silent that I can't even tell it's on. However, with my replacement unit, I can hear the hard drive spinning, which is slightly annoying.

Anyway, I proceeded to restore from a time machine backup and test my replacement unit when I noticed that it would occasionally get the hard drive click + beep + freeze issue that many others who have the 7200 RPM drive seem to be facing. It's extremely annoying, and more importantly I miss the complete silence of my older unit.

My question is, while I'm still in possession of both units(which both have the exact same specs, same 7200 RPM drive, etc.), should I simply just open both up and take the silent(good) hard drive from my old unit and put it into my new one?

The click+beep freeze issue is really pissing me off, and my old unit didn't suffer from it - it's just this replacement one(doesn't make any sense).Anyway, would notice if I switched the hard drive? Would I get screwed somehow? Do they keep track of the hard drive serials or something?

I really don't want to go through the pain of sending this back, especially considering that a LOT of people are suffering from this issue, and I don't want to end up with another defective drive. I'm sick and tired of games and just want a computer that WORKS.
