MacBook not charging, bad MagSafe board?
Seems to be a little more common issue on these older MacBooks, but I am unable to get mine to charge. Was working just fine, then just stopped charging one day. LED doesn't come on on the adapter (have an L-tip), and the screen says it's not charging. Don't think the logic board is bad, as the computer is running fine otherwise. Switched out the MagSafe DC in board, and still nothing. I have a new DC-in board on the way currently, as I am unsure if the one I switched in was bad. My second possibility, is that the charger I am using provides to much voltage. It is an 85W supply, and although that should theoretically work, as it was before, who knows... I checked the voltages at the pins on this board, and they measured as follows (from top to bottom, starting with black):
Pin 1 (first black wire): 2.90 V
Pin 2: 0 V (ground)
Pin 3: 0 V (ground)
Pin 4 (inner grey wire): 18.63 V
Pin 5 (outer grey wire): 18.63 V
So it has a DC supply coming into the board, but is not charging. Battery is good, and logic board seems ok. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
Is this a good question?
