If you’re having trouble charging your MacBook, there are a few potential fixes you can try. First, make sure that the charger is properly plugged into the wall outlet and the MacBook. If that doesn’t work, try resetting the SMC (System Management Controller). If that doesn’t solve the problem, you may need to take your MacBook to an Apple Store or an authorized repair center.
Check the MagSafe adapter
If your MacBook won’t charge, the first thing you should check is the MagSafe adapter. Make sure that the adapter is firmly plugged into the power port on your MacBook and into the power outlet. If it’s not plugged in all the way, your MacBook won’t charge.
If your MagSafe adapter is plugged in but your MacBook still won’t charge, try unplugging and replugging it in. Sometimes the connection can get loose and need to be re-established.
If you’ve tried both of these things and your MacBook still won’t charge, there could be a problem with the MagSafe adapter or the power port on your MacBook.
Check for battery issues
If your MacBook won’t charge, the first thing you should do is check for any battery issues. To do this, open System Preferences and click on the Battery icon. If you see a message that says “Service Battery,” this means there is a problem with your battery and it needs to be serviced.
If you don’t see a message about the battery, click on the Power tab. Here, you can check the “Condition” of your battery. If it says “Replace Soon” or “Replace Now,” this means your battery is no longer working properly and needs to be replaced.
In some cases, you may be able to improve your battery’s condition by calibrating it. To do this, go to the Apple menu and choose “About This Mac.” Click on the “System Report” button and then select “Power” from the list of hardware. Under “Battery Information,” you’ll see an option to “Calibrate…” Click on this and follow the instructions.
Check the logic board
If your MacBook won’t charge, the first thing you should check is the logic board. This is the main part of the computer that controls all the other parts. If there is a problem with the logic board, it could be preventing your MacBook from charging.
To check the logic board, you’ll need to open up your MacBook and take a look at it. If you’re not comfortable doing this yourself, you can take it to a qualified repair person or Apple Store and have them do it for you.
Once you have access to the logic board, carefully inspect it for any signs of damage or corrosion. If you see any damage, clean it off with a soft cloth and some isopropyl alcohol. If there is significant damage, you may need to replace the logic board.
If the logic board looks fine, the next step is to check the power adapter.
