Hi,

 

I've been having difficulties with the Magsafe in my Macbook Air. I plug it and it may or may not light up. When it doesn't light up, the battery doesn't charge. I have to unplug it plug it again several times before it eventually works.

 

I've tried resetting the SMC following the link below:

Intel-based Macs: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC)

I read that you're supposed to see the Magsafe light blink when SMC reset works properly. If that is the case, then resetting is probably *not* working, because I don't see anything happening.

 

In particular, if the Magsafe is not lighting up, it remains off after I try to reset the SMC.

 

Is there any other thing I could try to get rid of this very annoying intermittence?
