My battery drained completely. I recharged it. The green light is on. I turn the computer on but all I'm getting is the spinning wheel and the apple logo.
Is there any way to fix this myself without having to bring it in for repair?
Try a smc reset:
Then recharge for 20+ HOURS
Hope this helps this hopes
See if any of this helps:
Thanks, I will try that.
Ps. Just wondering why the battery would have to be charged for 20+ hrs if it already fully charged?
If the battery says fully charged, unplug the power supply and let it bleed out, then try again. This is a provder to see if there might be an issuse. It might not work, but it does not work now...right?
Already tried that. Still nothing but spinning wheel and logo.
So, do you still recommend that I charge 20+ hrs??
Does this apply to the macbook pro? I just noticed that i said "mac" originally.
All of Apple's computers are called "Macs." Your system profile confirms you have a Macbook Pro.
ps... What would be your solution to my issue? I'd love to know your take on it..... thx
Apple/About This Mac/More Info/Hardware/Power/Battery Information - copy and paste the information here. Do not include any serial numbers.
If you see "Replace Now" or "Needs Service" you need a new battery.
But I can't even access a screen. When I power on, it just shows the spinning wheel and the logo. I can't get into my laptop at all.
Battery had drained completely.
I recharged it fully.
Green light is on, showing full charge.
But getting nothing but that stupid wheel (and apple logo)
Time to take it in to a repair shop.
so u figure the other solutions above won't work?
Happened to me. Did a SMC reset to fix it.
