No power MacBook Pro MagSafe dim

No power, Sun magsafe MacBook

Hello

Then 2 days ago, I bought a used MacBook Pro, model 13 "2012.

I had planned to replace the hard disk drive for an SSD, wich I went to. and... Since then, it won't power, at all. I put the old hard drive, has nothing that I could think of, still no power. When I plug my magsafe (I checked that it was working with another computer) the only thing I see is a really small green light on the connector.

Could someone help?

Thanks :)

The usual recourse is to perform a reset of the MSC. Please read reset the management system (SCM) controller on your Mac for the procedure. Follow all the steps, even if they seem inapplicable or trivial. Do not try to remove the battery from your Mac's battery is not removable.

  • Questions to power MacBook Pro 15 "

    My MacBook Pro is getting pretty old (8 almost 9 years), and at that age, he has some weird problems. I already talked to Apple about this and they can't pin point the issue... all they know is that it is NOT a software problem. Basically, my computer has some weird and random hiccups

    Data sheet:

    MacBook Pro (15 inch, late 2008)

    OS: El Capitan 10.11.4

    Processor: 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

    RAM: 8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3

    Chart: NVIDIA GeForce 9400 M 256 MB

    Hard drive: 320 GB Toshiba HDD

    Questions:

    • Stops at Midway during the start unless constantly, you press a key on the keyboard
    • Request chance to stop, restart, sleep in the pop window crept up I pressed the power button and will stop if Cancel is not pressed within 5-10 seconds
    • Randomly goes to sleep and stop unless you immediately wake up
    • Stop when the lid is closed (insomnia will not fix it... list of things I've tried is planned)
    • Caps lock light does not work (possibly related)
    • The lighting is uneven in lighting (possibly related)
    • Reader superDrive cannot read, write or view the disks on the desktop (possibly related)

    Solutions, I tried (but not):

    • Reset the NVRAM
    • Replacing the HARD drive
    • Installation of insomnia
    • Reinstall OS X
    • Boot Safe Mode
    • Disk check and repair authorization

    I have no idea what to do and I don't want to make a new MacBook. If any of you can help or tell me what the problem is it would be greatly appreciated. If worst comes to worst I'll bring to a local Apple certified repair shop and get it looked at. I don't get a new computer (if it is repairable and not as compensation of $500). I want to wait until the computer is 2 years late. And yes I know the MacBook will not be able to get MacOS Sierra 10.12.0 in the fall, I'm willing to wait for OS X 10.14.0 (2018) to get a new Mac.

    Please try resetting the SMC.

    Reset the SMC. Choose the method for "If the battery is good behaviour."

  • A Magsafe 85w power adapter would be detrimental to my MacBook Pro (13-inch, mid 2010)

    Hi all!

    I have a MacBook Pro (13-inch, mid 2010, 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo).

    Well, after years of abuse, the thinner rope (which connects to the Macbook) began to tear. I tried to drag an above shrink wrap to fix and make it last a little longer, but now I find myself stirring the rope around so he can start loading.

    in any case, I found a company after-market on Amazon called Supsun making (link below) and recently purchased a. He said that going to work with my Macbook, but I think not even check what power mine use and after he woke up, I found out mine originally a 60w.

    Will this hurt Magsafe Supsun 85w power adapter my mid 2010 13-inch Macbook in anyway?

    I thank you for all your comments!

    Link to Supsun adapter that I bought on Amazon:

    I, personally, look at the price difference and ask myself I'd be sad if I saved money and things did not work well.

  • MacBook Pro 13 won't turn on MagSafe flashes green, before power light flashes

    MacBook battery failed before I could load. Now, when it is attached to the MagSafe power cable, the Green led flashes 2 seconds and the power led on the front flashes for a split second. The fan turns as it seems to light up, then dies. When you press the power button, the magsafe remains steady. Have tried to reset the SMC, but appears not to have done anything. Then I removed the battery connector, but the above symptoms persist. Any ideas appreciated.

  • load a MacBook Pro with a 2 85 w MagSafe

    No problem load of a MacBook Pro 13 of retina with a power adapter 85W MagSafe 2?

    If it fits, it works. It will not damage anything, and it cooler. It's just more heavy to wear.

    If your MacBook uses the older MagSafe, MagSafe-2 may not match.

  • Problems loading the macbook pro with magsafe 45w 2?

    I have a macbook pro 15 "with AMD Radeon R9 M370X that starts only when the magsafe is plugged in 2. In my work is clogged al magsafe 85w 2 for best performance time, but when I'm Home I have a charger for a macbook air (magsafe 45w 2 is, according to me)

    Is all that I should be aware to use a smaller battery charger, either for the map graphic, or is just the slower battery charges and everything works well?

    15 "need to 85W charger models. Using the most small charger will begin its overload and possibly fail prematurely, as well as the big Mac is deprived of power and discharge the battery, because there will be enough juice. Don't be a cheapskate and buy a charger suitable for this if you do not want to wear a topic.

  • MacBook pro power question

    Hello

    recently, I replaced my battery in my macbook pro (late 2011) with an official replacement battery, I was wondering if one fell on the following question...

    almost everytime I disconnect my charger magsafe, it cuts the power rather than switch to battery power my macbook pro, I did MSC resets, resets of vram and recently diagnosed

    error code I got from the trial of the aht has been ' 4xxx/6/40000005: 0... 'battery' '...

    I'm not sure what it actually means if its my battery or battery sensor etc...

    wondering if anyone knows how to solve my problem?

    Apart from this question my mac works perfectly fine running on the power adapter

    Any help would be appreciated.

    If you had Apple install the battery, it should have a one year warranty.  Make an appointment with an Apple store genius bar and have examined the MBP. Even out of warranty, the assessment will be free.

    My mother just bought a Macbook Air from 2012 and she a 45W Magsafe A1436 with her charger. I would like to know if it is OK to use it with my Macbook Pro retina 2015.

    If you google Magsafe A1436, you will find some results saying it's a Magsafe 2 charger. Does this mean that I can use?

    Yes it will work. But be aware that it will slow down the macbook a little, the power is not the same. And battery charge rate will be slower as well.

    Hello

    Just in case, run disk utility.

    Open utility disk located in Applications/Utilities

    Then select the disk to boot on the left and then select the first aid tab and then click run.

    If disk utility indicates that the disc seems to be OK, you are finished. Otherwise, you must repair the disk.

  • The new App Store for El Capitan update has locked up my macbook pro.  Reboot got about 3/4 fact and the machine stops. Turned off the power and turn it on again for nothing doesn't.  How in my machine to begin troubleshooting?

    The new App Store for El Capitan update has locked up my macbook pro.  Reboot got about 3/4 fact and the machine stops. Turned off the power and turn it on again for nothing doesn't.  How in my machine to begin troubleshooting?

    The problem is most likely an attempt to update a system malfunction prior it is probably a problem with your computer, not the El Capitan.

    Start by:

    Reset the PRAM and NVRAM on your Mac.

    MacIntel: Reset of the controller (SMC) system management

    Start in Safe Mode , and then re - start normally. It's slower that a normal start, so be patient.

    If you are unable to start;

    Reinstall El Capitan without erasing the drive

    Please make sure that you back up.

    1. Restart the computer. Immediately after that the chime hold down the command and R until the Utility Menu appears.
    2. Select disk utility, then click on the continue button.
    3. Select the withdrawal (usually Macintosh HD) entry of the volume in the list aside.
    4. Click first aid icon in the toolbar. Wait until the button is active, then click it.
    5. Quit disk utility and re-enter the Utility Menu.
    6. Select Reinstall OS X and click on the continue button.

    Also, see this tip for user: basic steps for the OS X upgrade.

    If this doesn't get you;

    Install Yosemite or El Capitan, from scratch

    Backup if possible before proceeding.

    Restart the computer. Immediately after the chime hold down the command and R buttons until the Apple logo appears. When the Utility Menu appears:

    Select utility disc in the Menu Utility, then click the continue button.

    When loading disk utility, select the volume (entered into withdrawal, usually Macintosh HD) from the list of devices.

    Click Delete in the main window of disk utility. A panel will fall.

    Define the type of Format Mac OS extended (journaled).

    Click on the apply button, then wait for the done button to activate and click on it.

    Quit disk utility and re-enter the Utility Menu.

    Select reinstall OS X and click on the continue button.
