The battery connector is a custom motherboard connect, and I've never seen it elsewhere. Apr 16, by George Turnbull. May 11, by Anita Alvarez. Posted: Jun 30, Until point 6 everything works exactly the same for me. What happens when you shut down and power on again? Do you not have any other issues? Today I tried to power up and nothing happens. Even with Magsafe plugged in - no beep, no fan - nothing.
Just the Magsafe-LED and the battery-indicator show normal behaviour and battery seems charging blinking dots. Tried all the SMC procedure over and over again and nothing. Just removing the battery or unplug the connector from the logicboard finally effect such as a reset.
Now it was possible to power on the machine with Magsafe plugged in only, SMC reset and start all over again three times now and get the same issue after that. So Coconut has revealed that battery condition was good, loadcycles 2, even charge displayed correct and everything looks fine, except for the age. In fact a bit high - manufacture date was - thought possibly deeply discharged, but then it would not charge at all I start replacing the batteries in two different 15" MBP.
The battery model is A for i7 and A for i5 Macbook. It just seems the battery have to be "trained in", but why such mysterious error with the calibration procedure??? Any idea or helpful workaround for that? I doubt this is the case but I logon onto my account that has Administrator rights. As I gave it to the repairer, I allowed 'Guest' account access. Try his method if you have not.
Btw, I am not the person in the video. I am unsure how to 'rein' in the calibration procedure. But things in electronics ie capacitors have memory even it is shutdown. Have to leave it for a few minutes to discharge. I also have a 1 year old A 15" inch Macbookpro retina purchased from Apple.
I bought AppleCare for it and if the battery fails within 2 years, I am covered. It has a 'Made in China' badge and the battery is Simplo made. Jun 30, by David. But always the same, it did not start on battery power by itself. Thought maybe I got a broken one this time…. Then your idea at point C solved it for me! In fact the power management must be related to the RAM memory itself and causes this malfunction.
When disassembling the logicboard to dust it free I pulled out the RAM slots and left them overnight discharge. Today everything assembled and it has immediately started without magsafe! So that tricky situation occurred with my i7 Macbook and A with the gap-plug. But no weird problems at all with the i5 model and A I guess the learn in procedure of new batteries could be related to the different types and models and therefore varies.
Jul 2, by rokost. Jul 3, by David. Chris christoff Posted: Dec 27, After leaving the device unused and uncharged for weeks it booted okay, but failed to detect the magsafe.. This method is only known by some people, but not too many.
Then it will light up again as the disk and fans starts turning. Hopefully this info will help someone who needs it. It could also be a problem with the Magsafe, or the battery itself, though it only has 16 recharges on it. Posted: Oct 15, I have replaced the battery in my mid MacBook Pro. But two screw drivers were part of the package and included the stuff to loosen up the batteries from adhering to the case of the computer.
My batteries were all expanded and easy to remove. When I got the bottom of the case back on, I tapped the on button and it came alive. I have taken note of the instructions to use the computer until the battery indicator at the top right of the computer is on the single digit and them shut it down and charge the battery for 12 hours. I have done that three times. The unit seems to be just like it was before changing batteries. I lost a couple of screws, so live and learn.
James Haines jametheus. Posted: Jul 3, The solution that worked for me was in a post that I can no longer find. Thank you mystery poster. Thank you! After I installed a new battery, I charged the battery for over 12 hours. The first thing I noticed when I attempted to power up the computer with the charger still plugged in was that the orange light on the charger connector was still on, indicating that its was still attempting to charge the battery! Not good! I reconnected the charger plug and started the computer normally, that is, by using ac power.
Interestingly, the battery indicator icon did not appear on the screen as it normally does. I will not clutter this posting with all of the things I tried next except to say that my mystery savior solved my issue by simply recommending to disconnect then reconnect the battery.

Well done!! Thank you too for your above assessment. Chris christoff Rep: 1. Posted: Dec 27, Options Permalink History. Disconnect Magsafe Open case and disconnet battery with a spudger or carefully with a fingernail. With laptop facing bottom-up with the cover off, reconnect the Magsafe. And even before you begin this diagnostic journey, you need to make sure that the MagSafe charger you are using is functioning properly. A dead AC adapter won't charge any battery regardless if it's in the laptop or not.

I too did this when powered on and power still plugged in. I hit the power button to turn back on. Logged in normally. Icon still showed Battery not charging. Unplugged power adaptor and while unplugged it was blinking orange. Unplugged from wall. Waited until light went out and then 10 more seconds.
Plugged back into the wall and then my MacBook started charging again. Mar 26, AM. Page content loaded. I definitely understand your concern with your battery not fully charging. I found a couple of resources that I think might help with this. If your battery is still not charging, the next thing I recommend is troubleshooting your MagSafe adapter using the steps in this article:. Apple Portables: Troubleshooting MagSafe adapters.

Same probvlem mid 15" retina I'm blaming Mar 4, PM. Hey Apple! Do something please! My Thunderbolt display still doesn't charge my mid MBP. Same problem as for splizaat two posts below. Apr 3, AM. Ken, again you are a god send. My girlfriend accidentally spilled a glass of water on my MacBook Pro, I know.
She thought quickly and shut it down, flipped it over a towel to let the water drain out, then used a blow drier on cold and aired it out for about 20 minutes redeeming herself I then opened the lap top and stood it tee-pee style for 2 days to let it air out.
I tried to do the battery reset while the laptop was still plugged in but nothing happened. I unplugged the laptop and tried the reset again, and by the grace of god it started to charge. Thank you Ken, and thank you Apple for justifying my purchases over and over by producing a superior product. Apr 18, PM. Community Get Support. Sign in Sign in Sign in corporate. Browse Search.
