Macbook Pro battery won't charge - Page 2

post #41 of 48
So about 2 days ago i spilled water on my macbook pro. i let it dry and it eventually turned on and seemed to be working on. When my battery got to about 20% i plugged it into my charger. i saw a little yellow light flash in between my charger and my computer and my comp shutdown. i unplugged it and it turned on again. i tried charging again and the same thing happened. when the computer shuts off the charger shows a green light. any idea why this is happening? did i try charging to early?

Do you have any other laptops you can try to use to see if it is the adopter or not? try that

I have tried the SMC reset and it hasn't fixed my problem. My MacBook Pro is no longer under warranty. I had the problem where my battery wouldn't charge about 6 months ago, and the battery was visibly bulging, so I put in a new battery. Now my new battery won't charge. It is stuck at 0% and isn't charging. the system profiler says it has only 24 cycles, so it shouldn't be bad.

I'm not sure if anyone will check this thread but thought I would post the answer to my problem since I didn't need it answered anymore. Feel kinda dumb for not trying it sooner.


I just registered to tell you how much i love you! :P

no seriously, thank you! You saved my precious *hugging notebook as we speak*

When I installed the new battery, it stopped charging at 45% and stayed there. I tried all of the "pre-SMC reset" options suggested by Apple with no luck, so I repaired Disk Permissions and reset the SMC. The first time around it didn't work. When I plugged the battery and charger back in, the battery was still at 45% and not charging.

So I reset the SMC again, but this time paying attention to the order things were done, and it worked. The battery is now charging. Here's what I did:

I unplugged the power supply, removed the battery, and then held the power button down for five seconds. Then I plugged the power cord back in FIRST, so that the LED lit bright green (it was a dim green when the battery was installed first). Next I installed the battery. After a few seconds, the LED on the power plug turned dim green again, but when I rebooted the computer, the battery immediately began charging.

I have no idea if doing things in this particular order really worked or if it was just a fluke, but I thought I'd share it here in case it's useful for anyone else.


Doing it in this order was the only thing that worked for me. Thanks.

I recently installed apple updates 4 days ago. Since then I have issues with the headphone jack working on and off and now its my charging point. My macbook is out of warranty but in vgc and not used alot. Could there be something dodgy in the updates that has prompted this?? since my macbookpro has not been exposed to any new conditions and this just seems so odd. Im not sure what to do but read something online that it is possible to send an undetectable bug to the laptop so you have to purchase replacement/ additional hardware. Does anyone know about this or can help what the issue might be. I have never had this kind of issue with a immaculately maintained machine just going on the blink out of the blue shortly after accepting these updates. Please help!! I need this to finish a project that is all set up on apple software that I am on a deadline for !! I already tried 1) reset SMC and 2) a different charger but none of these do anything...very frustrated!
