Hello everyone,


I've been having this issue where my MacBook Pro (Mid 2010) refuses to charge. The LED on the magsafe will not show up and the computer doesn't want to take a charge. The first time this happened (2years ago) I took it to Apple, the second time I did both a PRAM and SMC reset. I also tried every single power outlet in my house. Nothing. There was a moment where it the LED on the magsafe went on and charged the computer but only for a minute. Then it stopped working. Can anybody shed light on why this keeps happening? And possibly a fix?

    Do you have another mac portable at home? Try using that adapter with another computer.  If it works it is most likely a hardware issue with your computer, if it still does not charge then the adapter is bad.

    I would bring it to APPLE, as it could be the PSU, mag connector, power input in the machine, logic board, or a number of other things. You have done all the correct resets, seems like some hardware problem.  Bring it in as theydiagnostic for free.   All the best

    Agreed, take it into Apple. You could sit, and guess about what it could be all day. The best solution waits for you at the Genius Bar!
