MagSafe not charging sys? Sometimes Orange, never turns Green
It’s my tried-and-tested, upgraded-to-8Gb-ram, much-loved MacBook. It’s on its 3rd battery, the magsafe is also a replacement, but it had been working fine.
For a few days I have had to wiggle it to get the light to come on, but it came on and was charging ok. But recently I noticed that the light didn’t turn to green. The other day the battery ran out completely and it shut down, so I put it on to charge. After wiggling the connector a lot, unplugging and leaving it for a few minutes, praying for a miracle, I finally got the orange light to come on and left it to charge overnight.
Next morning I enthusiastically fired her up but was sorry to see it had only charged a measly 4%, and soon turned of again. I have tried several different sockets, different wiggles and more prayers but nothing’s working. Tomorrow I may have the tools and the time to take the back cover off and have another look inside.
Is there anything I should be looking out for? Anybody have any suggestions as to what it may be? Is there a cure? Or is it simply a case of a perfectly good Apple product deciding it’s time to say goodbye to this cruel world and go and be with Steve?
Thanks … for reading and giving me any advice or encouragement
