Magsafe adapter not charging unless I manually touch pins
So I came across a very weird issue. I havent used my mac in a little while until today. I went to plug in the charger and it wouldn't charge. There is not light on the connector and the mac was not showing it is connected. Tried resetting SMC but didn't work.
Now, the strange part... I was trying to clean some dust inside the connector port on the mac itself. With my stupidity, I was using the end of a pair of scissors to clean it (metal). I accidentally touched the outer and second outer pins together (ground and V+) and there was a small spark. I figured I probably fried it but I plugged the charger in and viola, the light came on and was charging my battery.
I went to unplug the charger and try it and plug it back in and it wouldn't charge again. I figured I would try to touch the two pins again just to see if it was a coincidence. I touched the pins, a small spark emitted (because of the short), and it worked again. Now two questions. Why does touching those pins make it work and what can I do to permanently fix it? Thanks in advance!
Is this a good question?
