MacBook Pro :: Not Charging And Randomly Shutting Down When Removing Mag From Charging Port?
May 13, 2012
My Macbook pro is not charging. If I move the cord (specially at the Macbook charging port) it charges. But again if the cord is slightly disturbed then it doesn't charge. The problem got worse as my Mac randomly shuts down (especially when I remove the mag at the Macbook charging port). I dono what to do. Apple care (Genius) is far from my place.There is no visible physical damage on my mag charger. Could anyone suggest what I should do? I checked the battery status in system profiler and it says NORMAL. The details are as follows:
just moments ago i plugged in my mbp and literally 1 minute or so later i hear a static fuzz sound (hard to describe) but if i had to give a similar sound it was exactly like the sound your radio alarm clock makes sometimes when your cell phone is nearby receiving an incoming call or text w/e, your alarm clock sometimes makes that sudden static fuzz sound.
well my mbp made that sound, wasn't as distorted as an radio alarm clock would make, but it sounded more precise. the sound came out of the left speaker for a second or so (no music or movie or any program with sound effects were active at this moment) i believe right where the magsafe is hooked into. and i was like "what the heck was that?? and was it from my mbp??" so i looked at the magsafe and sure enough the orange charging light was out as if it was unplugged (but it was still plugged IN) so i unhooked it then rehooked it and now it charged like normal again, still hasn't done it again while i started this thread.
any thoughts?? additional info i have to add is, i was swapping out the extension pieces from the smaller cord adapter, to the full 8 foot or so cord one. but when i switched out the small single piece i tugged in the opposite direction, i pulled up against the metal circle joint, instead of sliding left to unhooked the metal circle thing (w/e u call it). i felt the piece and its in full contact, i didn't loosen it or anything. could this be the random cause?
lastly, that static noise i heard that ended up causing the magsafe to stop charging. could that static noise damage my speakers?
additional info i also had my cell phone like 8 inches away from the magsafe. could the cell phone have the same static frequency or w/e that can interfere with the magnet/charging cycle?? i didn't receive any calls or texts when it happened. so i dunno if cell phones have frequencies constantly that could possibly cause my issue without having the receive incoming calls or texts etc.
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?
I have a mid-2009 13" Macbook Pro with 8GB RAM. I have the odd situation of the power indicator on top right of screen showing that the power adapter is plugged in, but the percentage indicator stating that the laptop is "not charging." I have been working on the computer for several hours and the laptop has only charged to about 27 percent according to the battery health application that is runningI have. It says the battery has gone through 281 cycles and is 2.4 years old. It suggests the battery should still charge to 92 percent of its potential. The battery is warm as is the power adapter cube, so something is happening. The little light on the end of the power cord is green but only two of the little green dots light up on the left edge of the computer.
I got my computer yesterday, it's a iBook G4 OS X 10.5.8. The charger worked fine until around six o' clock. Then it wouldn't charge. We switched the power pack and it worked for an hour or so, and then the same thing. What can I do? I CANNOT take it to be fixed.
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 have a MacBook which has recently been shutting down when it feels like :/ this all started a week or two ago (well not the shut downs but other issues that I'll get too), basically the fan I think has been knocked as it is bumping the top or something as the whirring is getting loud and it sounds like every now and again it hits something
Also CPU usage seems to be averaging out at 20% for Safari and 100% for HD Video where as it used to be very small amount for Safari and 30 - 40% for HD.

Got this new mbp a couple months ago, and these it's getting very hot when plugged in charging.Is this normal, or should i worry about it? BTW, i have it connected to an LED display 24' and the charger is actually the wire of the display. I dunno if this is the reason.
i've recently noticed my mac getting hot when being used and hotter when charging, the contact for the charger has not been as reliable as it once was and the gray molding aroung the copper contacts on the mac charger port is darkening on one end.
I connected my laptop to it's magsafe charger but it just says "Not Charging". The little light also isnt turning on to show any kind of signs that it is charging or not. My laptop does get brighter when on the chager, but thats about it. I tried plugging my laptop into my sister's Macbook Pro charger, and it works perfectly fine. Why isn't my Macbook air charging on its original charger?
Most of the time I charge when I get to 99%, it stays that way even if I leave it charging at 99% for a good amount of time. Anyone have this problem? Should I just take out my charger at 99% or what do you think I should do?
I have had my 13 in macbook pro for about three months and suddenly it does not charge when it is plugged in. In the last week this has started to happen but upon fussing with the connection like unplugging and replugging in the magnet charger it would start for a while and stop randomly. Now I can not get the computer to charge at all no matter how much I fuss. Do I need a new adapter or is there some other problem?
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 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.
I also had an issue with my MagSafe where the cable was coming out of the housing and there are wires exposed. Had to replace it myself as they said the issue on that was not covered. It also had a very dim green light (only notice it in a dark room), and the not charging message by the battery icon after the repair but I figured this was due to the MagSafe, however was only able to buy a new one yesterday.
So got the new charger home, plugged it in and same thing, so definitely not the MagSafe at fault. Took the MBP and new MagSafe back to the shop and same there. They then plugged the charger into one of their MacBooks, red light came on the charger fine. The weird bit was they then plugged it back into mine and the red light came on again.
My white MacBook Intel Core 2 Duo is not charging the battery anymore. It says "No Batteries Available" and it works only with the cable plugged in. I already tried the following: - buy new battery - FAIL - reset SMC (30 seconds procedure) - FAIL - reset SMC (5 seconds procedure) - FAIL
I brought the Mac at the Apple Genius. They say there has been a liquid leak and asked me $780.00 for the repair (it does not make sense to pay this amount for this computer). I am not aware of any liquid leak. Yes, I had my MacBook in my backpack during rainy days but I had an umbrella. Anyway, I would like to have any advice about (i) where I could bring my Mac to repair (I live in the Bay Area) or (ii) what I could try to replace, following tutorials (like the very good ones on ifixit site).
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 Pro Core i5 2.40 GHZ doesn't want to charge. When I plug the magsafe, the screen becomes brighter and the battery icon show that it is plugged, but is also says "not charging". I've read on the internet multiple users are having this issue. But it seems to want to charge when I put it on sleep mode.
is it ok? do i have to charge it to full then use it? will that use power from ac or battery? the laptops im talking about are from dell and apple since some from dell n all frm apple are non removable
Went to Apple Store, they confirmed the battery needed to be replaced, told me it was $130 for a new one. I opted against it (figured I'd grab a cheap one online somewhere for now).Then, she informed me that the cracked casing on the edge where my right hand rests is a defect and that I could have the whole housing replaced. I said sure, and left my MacBook there for repairs.
Just picked it up about an hour ago, new housing, new keyboard, new trackpad/click button....and a brand-spanking new battery on the house.Call me whatever you'd like, but that would make anyone love Apple.Left my MacBook at home during a vacation and forgot to completely power down. It was closed and when i got back it was dead. Didn't think it was a big deal, it has happened before.
I plugged in my MacBook, turned it on, and begin doing what i needed to do. I noticed after about a half hour my battery symbol was still showing 0% with the full charge symbol. I unplugged the power cord and it immediately turned off again--completely dead.Plugged it back in, turned it on and it was fine, but still not charging. The light on my connector is green as well (signaling a full charge).Left it plugged in for about an hour after that with the top closed and still no charge.
I have a 2010 mbp which doesnt charge its a new magsafe and battery are fine.when the magsafe is connected all i get is the green light no orange anymore, im down to 45% battery and dare not let it get to zero just in case it wont charge.tried resetting pram,smc but still nothing.
