Power adapter working only 30 seconds after repair

文本:

Hi there,
 
I replaced my MacBook Air adapter's wire following [guide|24487|this guide], only I installed a replacement wire instead of keeping the old one.
 
I had already done it once and hadn't had a problem.
 
Since I did, adapter won't charge for more than about 24 seconds. After that time, it goes completely down, LED is off, computer doesn't see it at all. Consistently.
 
I have to unplug it from the wall and plug it back in to make it charge again. It consistently works. I don't need to wait, unplugging it and plugging it back in instantly is enough.
 
Conversely, unplugging it from the Mac and replugging it doesn't change anything.
 
However, if I unplug the adapter from both the Mac and the wall, then plug it to the wall only, wait 30 seconds, and then plug it to the Mac, it works (for 30 seconds though).
 
I can't detect any heat during these 24 seconds. No sound either.
 
As a corner case, if I leave the computer charging while closed, then it works fine. Also, in some cases it works fine too, mostly when it has been charging while off for a while. It seems that after about 40 minutes charging while off, if I turn it is not using too much CPU, or network bandwidth,on then it seems to work fine toocontinues charging without problem.

I have tried both the "duck head" as well as the extension chord. I also tried on several power outlets, including through an inverter with its own battery.

One potential noteworthy thing is that I am using this 45 W MacBook Air charger on a 60 W MacBook Pro. I had no problem before though.
 
EDIT :Additional information:
*
I chargedcouldn't find the wattage in System Information, however based on information on Apple's website, my computer while havingMacbook requires a 60 W power supply.
* Based on the information about the replacement wire,
it closed,seems to be compatible with both 45 W, 60W and since then the problem doesn't appear85 W adapters.
