OS X :: White Macbook Runs On AC Power (no Battery) But Not On Battery?

Apr 29, 2010

Just wondering if anyone has ever encountered this or if any experts out there know of the issue.I have a spare White Macbook (late 2008: Core 2 Duo 2.1GHz, 1GB, 120GB) that I'd like to set up for my brother to use to introduce him to the wonderful world of Macs. The problem it is having is that when I have a battery connected to it (I tried 2 different ones included a known-good one that is brand-new just purchased from Apple) it powers on and gives me the chime, but then immediately shuts off unexpectedly giving that little "whine" sound like if it just lost power all of a sudden. However, when i take out the battery, and just plug it into the Magsafe AC charger it works fine. Also when just trying to run on battery it does not turn on at all. Here's some cliffs:

1) Macbook with just battery does not turn on
2) Macbook with battery + Magsafe AC charger connects powers on, gives the chime, but then immediately shuts off making the "whine" sound as if the power was suddenly cut off
3) Macbook with no battery connected and just the Magsafe AC charger connected works fine.Do you guys think this is either:

A) battery connector issue (the little piece with the metal wires that the battery connects to. ~$50 part)
B) Logic Board issue

I already tried resetting the PRAM and SMU to no avail.

MacBook :: Why Battery Not Charging Properly - Die So Fast

Jun 4, 2009

My battery was at 100%, but I unplugged it for about 15 minutes while I was still working and it was at 96%. I plugged it back in, but it won't charge. It says battery is charged instead of __ until charged. Why won't it charge, and why does it die so fast? Screen brightness is all the way down and I'm only using firefox and word.

How To Properly Charge / Discharge Macbook Air Battery

Jun 19, 2012

I want to know if leaving my Macbook Air charging 20/24 hours a day will decrease the battery's useful life? I like to use my external monitor and close the clamshell on the MBA, and the only way to do this is to connect the laptop's AC adapter. I also want to know if I should be discharging the battery completely once a week, as some Google searches have recommended? Basically, will the useful life diminish at a faster rate by not discharging the battery completely, and charging the battery constantly while the battery is at max capacity? I keep reading that with the newer lithium-ion batteries, it does not matter how the battery is charged, is this really true? I am concerned because the MBA battery cannot be easily replaced.

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

MacBook Pro :: Battery Calibration - Unable To Properly Sleep

Dec 2, 2009

I have a 30 month old MacBook Pro (the SantaRosa line from June 2007)... And was still using the original battery up until 3 days ago. Its capacity suddenly dropped from 83% down to 45%, so I took it to an Apple store, they did a diagnostic, and without question told me the battery was defective, and just gave me a brand new battery with only 1 loadcycle on it. So today I decided to calibrate it, had it charged up, unpulgged it and let it run until it was 'supposed' to go to sleep... It had 0% left on it, the screen shut off, and the sleep light was just starting to dim, when I heard the hard drive go . (As if one pushed and held the power button, aka hard shutdown).

It seems it didn't have enough reserve capacity to let it go to sleep, so instead of waiting the 5 hours (as it wasn't sleeping, and pressing the button on the battery showed no lights at all), I decided to plug it in right away. Would it be a good idea to calibrate again, or simply wait a month or so and do it again then?

When I turned the computer back on, it didn't even resume at my desktop, so not only did it not get to sleep properly, it didn't even have a chance to write the memory to the hard drive, and now the actual battery capacity in Coconut battery is showing up 95%, 5253mAh

Just curious, as 30 months ago when I first got my original one, it calibrated properly and didn't completely die when it got to reserve capacity...

Jan 14, 2010

A dad dropped my aluminuim Macbook 13" and the system runs fine, no issues with that, but I noticed the battery door had moved and wedged itself so there were gaps at the edges. I removed the door, and try as I might, I can't get it to line up properly.I'm really upset about this, as I've had it for a year now and really looked after it.I have the three year Apple Care plan, and I'm going to an Apple shop on Saturday about my iPhone anyway- do you think this problem is fixable?

Feb 23, 2010

out of the blue about 3 months ago my MacBook(version10.4.11) started refusing to recognize my home wireless. the problem has now reached the point where it AT TIMES will display that the wireless newtwork is on in the toolbar yet the computer will not jump onto the internet. Now it has reached the point where it won't even show that it sees the wireless in the toolbar. I have reloaded all passwords , checked the Verizon wirelss set up, reloaded firefox , checked all firewalls. The wierd thing is that my kids macbook is fine. Mine is the one with the problem.I checked all my settingts to correspond/copy hers and they do. Have zapped pram too. It works fine EVERYWHERE else but home.

OS X :: MacBook Wireless Not Working Properly?

Sep 8, 2009

Starting about 4 months ago my 3 year-old 2.0GHz Core Duo MacBook's wireless started to not work very well. What was happening is that after starting the computer or waking it from sleep, it was able to connect to my network, but after about 5 seconds it would lose the signal despite being physically very close to the router without anything to block the signal. The problem progressively got worse, and at its worst it was only able to connect about 1 in 10 times. Either it wouldn't find the network at all, or it would find it but couldn't connect because "The connection timed out" or something like that.

I never bothered fixing the problem because my Mac was having a bunch of other issues at the time, so I was just going to fix them all by doing a fresh install of Snow Leopard once it came out.

So 3 days ago I did a fresh install of Snow Leopard (I formatted the harddrive then did a fresh install, not an archive and install). Unfortunately, it only kinda helped the wireless problem: I can now connect half the time rather than 1 in 10 times like it used to be.

I'm quite sure my network isn't the problem because everyone that has used my network in the recent past (which has been about 10 different PCs, Macs, and iPhones) hasn't had any problems. FYI, I have a Linksys WRT54G wireless router.

MacBook Pro :: Tap To Click Not Working Properly?

Mar 21, 2012

After re-installing Lion I've had this very annoying issue with tap-to-click on the trackpad of my MBP. While it seems to work most of the time, I often have to move the cursor away from the button or click on a window as if to make it active in orer for the click to work. A similar problem is occuring in MS Word when I'm going through the spell check process - I have to sometimes click "ignore" multiple times or click somewhere else in that window for the click to register.

MacBook Pro :: Brightness Sensor Not Working Properly

Jun 14, 2010

I bought my first Mac computer last month, the 13" 2.4 variant. Loving it so far.I have lately noticed however that my ambient light sensor is not much of help. Before, after coming out of sleep I could notice the screen changing to accommodate for the room's light output. I could also put my hand over the sensor near the iSight and witness the brightness decrease in front of me.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Not Working Properly After 10.6.4 Update

Jun 23, 2010

I updated to 10.6.4 the other day on my mbp 17" 2.93 mid 2009 model the other day. Since, my computer has developed two problems. first and most annoying, the keyboard doesn't work properly anymore. Shift keys don't work, then they do work. One side doesn't then the other side does. option and command do the same thing. Is this a documented problem? I searched and saw it was prior to 10.6.4, but I never had any problems until this update. Also, when I shut my computer, instead of going to sleep now. It goes crazy, fans jack up to full speed and it gets super hot. Doesn't sleep at all. Funny enough before the update, when i closed the lid the computer would go to sleep and wouldn't wake up.

MacBook Pro :: Right Channel Output Not Working Properly?

Sep 10, 2014

I recently purchased a Retina Macbook Pro 15" no more than 3 months ago. 

Today I just noticed that whenever I connect my headphones I can hear the left channel clearly but the right channel is a lower volume and distorted. 

at first I thought it was the headphones, but have tried various ones and it doesn't seem to be that. 

Also, output from the internal speakers sounds fine, same level on both channels and clear

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mouse Click Not Working Properly On MacBook Pro

Mar 20, 2012

I just bought a macbook pro last week. Since using lion, I have noticed a problem clicking. Such as opening folders, minimizing windows, clicking the back space button etc. I click on a few folders and they open, and then I try to click on another one and it refuses to open no matter how many times I click on it unless I unselect it and try again. It is not consistent to specific folders/icons, it just happens at random.

It is as if the OS is not registering clicks consistently, like it were a hardware problem. Also my right click malfunctions at times and will either not work or will behave like it is the left click and vice versa and takes awhile to regulate itself. Keep in mind I use both a wireless usb mouse and my trackpad and this is a problem I experience with both of them. I am using the latest version (10.7.3)
