MBP Charger problem?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Hi everyone,

I received my MBP two days ago (2.4Ghz Core 2 Duo) and I've noticed what I am worried is a fault with the power adapter.

Twice I've noticed the light on the charger has not been on, yet the MBP is charging. On one occasion the light wasn't on and the MBP wasn't charging, but when I took out the magsafe connector and reconnected it, it started to charge as normal.

Thoughts, please.

    I have a MBP from 2006 with the original charger. Mine does this intermittently as well, although in the two years I've had the lappy it has yet to stop charging, set fire or kill me in my sleep to collect insurance. Like you, whenever it does this I just disconnect and reconnect the MagSafe adapter. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    I agree with these guys. Mine seems to have a "bad" connection sometimes. Even if it slide it a little the light comes on. For me it's no biggie.
