The power adapter its self is not repairable. You will need to get a new unit Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter (for MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro).

I would recommend you wipe down the contacts of your system with a cotton swab slightly moistened with a good grade of isopropyl alcohol (85% or better) to clean things up first. Maybe its just some dirt on the contacts.

I have already cleaned up with liquid isopropyl it did not work my service provider has adviced to change which is quite expensive in INDIA is it possible to buy any equivalent please advice thank you lakshmanan


Sadly no, Apple's unit is the only one out there that will work correctly. I'm sure you can find someones cheap clone of the unit. I must warn you: You could harm your computer! (even more costly) Or, even cause harm to your self and your home! (electrocution or fire). I would see if you know someone traveling who might be able to pick one up for you outside of India. It's not worth the risks - Sorry ;-{


Thank you very much for the advice,I am obliged.Narayanan lakshmanan
