MacBook Pro charging port replacement

Hi everyone,

I have a 2011 macbook pro, and recently bought a new charger because the old one was past its sell-by date. The charger is fine, it's the laptop that's not working well. The problem is that the magnetic port does not charge well when i connect it, and it needs a lot of fiddling and messing around until it charges and even then it turns off sometimes. Do you guys have a new charging port for this computer? Thanks !

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Well, yeah, maybe. But the one you need depends on the specific model of your computer, which you haven't told us.

iFixit doesn't currently stock the MagSafe board for 2011 17" MBPs - only 2009 ones. PowerbookMedic lists a variety of MagSafe boards, and specifies a different Apple part number for 2010 17" MagSafe boards (922-9288), but does not list either a part number or an item for the 2011 17" laptops. It's possible that a 2010 MagSafe board will fit, but it's hard to know without more information.

If you'll look at the About This Mac screen and identify the actual model of MacBook Pro we're talking about, we'll be able to offer more help.
