MacBook Pro :: Battery Not Charging - No Green Light?
My brother's MacBook Pro (brand new) was working fine until today. Now when he plugs in his power adaptor (or mine), the green light does not light up on the charger. The indicator at the top right of the screen says that he is plugged in, but the % charged never increases.

MacBook Pro :: Faint Green Charging Light?
My battery is at 89% and the light on my magsafe is a very faint green that I can only see if I block the light with my hand. What does this mean? I googled to no avail.

MacBook Pro :: No LED Light On Charger, And It's Not Charging As Well
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 :: Plugged In But Not Charging - Green Light On Indicator
My MBP is a couple of months old, I noticed that at times, the "not charging" message was being displayed even though the light was green on the charge indicator. A quick unplug and replug immediately makes it charge again. But, at one point, I must not have noticed it was in "not charging" state and unplugged my unit and the warning message popped up saying battery power was about out. Well, I have noticed more and more the issue where the "not charging" is showing (again, even with light green). I called Applecare and they replaced the Magsafe part which arrived today. I also did an SMC reset. All though, not sure why you would have to do anything on a relatively new machine. Will see if the new magsafe and SMC reset helps my situation.

MacBook Pro :: Faint Green Light Shown On MagSafe And No Charging
I have a 6 month old MBP 13" and on Friday it stopped charging and a faint green light showed on the magsafe. I took it into the apple store today and the genius 'fixed' it by unplugging and plugging in the battery and internal magsafe connectors. I just got home and it worked fine, but when I took the magsafe out and put it back in, the same problem has arisen. What should I do?

MacBook Pro :: Battery Not Charging But Adapter Light Appears Green
I have a early 2008 Macbook Pro. The battery got fully discharged today and now it won't charge at all past 5%. The computer shuts down if I unplug the power adapter. I have tried resettling the battery, restarting, SMC reset and different power outlets. When I first started charging it it said it was charging bu the time remaining was 20:00. A few days ago I got an alert that the battery needed servicing but it seemed to be holding a charge fine and I just got it new last September.

Here is the current profiler info:
Model Information:
Device name:ASMB012
Pack Lot Code:0000
PCB Lot Code:0000
Firmware Version:0110
Hardware Revision:0500
Cell Revision:0303

Charge Information:

It says it is fully charged yet it is only 5% full.

MacBook Pro :: Charger Stops Working - Dim Green LED Light
So yesterday, all of a sudden my charger stops working with my MBP 17" (14 months old, with in built battery). Surprisingly, my spare charger also doesn't work. At this point I notice that there is a faint green led on the charger, much less dim than the normal green led. And when I attempted to use a third charger which is for the new MacBook, it actually works very very slowly but t does charge! In the last 12 or so hours I have gained around 10%. light is still faint green. Never happened to me in 6 years of being on MacBooks. What's happening here? I'm in india so service from apple takes incredibly long.

MacBook :: Charging Green Light Not Come On?
I unplugged my blackbook last night when it was fully charged so I could drain the battery. Then I moved my macbook upstairs to the router and plugged in the ethernet so I could publish my website. I then plugged in my charger so it wouldn't die with publishing but its suddenly stopped working. The outlets work with other electronic devices but not my blackbook charger. No green light or nothing. It worked just a hour or two ago.

MacBook Air :: No Charging Even Though Light Is Green
My MacBook Air just stopped charging. The power is connected, and is showing a green light but the icon in OS X shows "Not Charging". It will only run off AC power. I have tried resetting the PRAM multiple times and restarted a bunch of times as well. I'd hate to have to take this in to the Apple Store, but do you guys have any ideas I could try before taking it in?

MacBook Pro :: Magsafe LED Stays Green - Battery "Not Charging"
The LED on my Magsafe light stays green, even if I disconnect it from my Macbook Pro. When I plug it in it says it's not charging but it actually is (I think). I had it plugged in for 15 minutes and the available battery life went from 40 minutes to 1:20. The remaining time is only displayed with the Magsafe disconnected, of course.

MacBook :: Adapter Plugged In And Light Turns Green But No Charging
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)

MacBook Aluminum :: Random Battery Charges - LED Light Goes Orange After Green?
I noticed that sometimes when I plug my Macbook into the charger, the LED lights up green, then goes orange. I usually use the charger extension as I tend to work farther away from the outlet. So, sometimes when the Macbook is plugged in, it will randomly stop charging. Si what I do is unplug the charger, disconnect the charger from the outlet. Separate the extension and the brick, and the put everything back. I just wanted to know if there was a way to fix this random charging issue, as I feel my method of getting the battery to charge is wearing away the battery's life.

MacBook Air :: Erratic Charging On 1st Generation - No Amber Or Green Light On Magsafe?
I have a 1st gen MBA, the battery cycles are:129. Last week I noticed that the small amber/green light of the magsafe was not working anymore, I first thought that the adaptor was defective but I tried one from a friend and same thing. What's strange is that it sometimes works just fine and even when I have no lights on I am showing that the MBA is connected to external power but not charging. If I move the magsafe a little, eventually the light comes back on and the MBA charges.

MacBook Pro :: Why Not Magsafe Power Port Led Light Light Up
yesterday i inserted a dvd into my macbook pro to watch a movie but because my battery was running low on power my macbook pro turned off.

when i first inserted the magsafe adapter the led light lite up to orange but when i woke up this morning the led light wasn't lite.

i pressed the button on the side to check the battery status and one green light blinked multiple times and than disappeared.

i've tried to turn on my macbook pro using the power button but i'm assuming it won't turn on because the battery needs charging.

on my working computer i went to apple's troubleshooting for magsafe adapters but no luck...

this macbook pro is fairly new. i purchased it on january 20th, 2010.

MacBook Pro :: Dead Pixels - Green Line Appeared On LED Screen
I have just bought a new MBP off the online store recently (less than a month ago) and all has been going well until a few hours back when a green line mysteriously appear on my LED screen, stretching from top to bottom. Well it does not take a genius to figure out that this is not the output from any program Im running, and Im pretty convinced this is a case of dead pixels.

I am disappointed to say the least, its been less than a month since this MBP was fresh out of the box and this happened. Now if there's no other way out (which I believe so), I will have to bring it down to for repair. Hopefully I will not have to pay a single cent (since its still under warranty), but I will lose my MBP for a week maybe?

MacBook Pro :: Bluetooth Keyboard - Green Light On And Then Off
I've had my Apple bluetooth keyboard for over a year now, but two days ago I started having some problems with it. Whenever I turn it on, the green light is on for like a second and then it's off, but nothing happens after that (it's supposed to blink a couple times before it connects). I tried changing batteries and everything I could think of, but haven't figured out a way to get it to work again.

IMac Intel :: Green (+) Button Does Not Light Up Green Anymore?
My green button, that appears at the left top corner of every window does not become green ( and the red on does not become red anymore). With this problem my computer does not allow me to resize my screen from the bottom right corner or move around the desktop (especially if I am in photoshop or something like that). I have tried so many options and have had no solutions. It is driving me crazy because I need to use my computer and its programs every day for my job.

MacBook Pro :: Spilled Milk - Only Green Power Light Comes On
I recently spilled close to a tablespoon of milk onto the keyboard. Most of this landed on the keys themselves. I thought nothing of this and continued working for 4 hours. I left for 6 hours and came home to a non working Powerbook G4. The green powerlight does come on. I let sit for one day. Still nothing.
