15" MBP powers on but won't charge
Got a kinda strange one here that I can't figure out. It's a 2011 15". Recently it will only run on the power adaptor (with throttled CPU).
As soon as I pull the plug out it will switch off. However, the battery health is showing as fine and CoconutBattery is reporting no issues.
I replaced the battery last year (official apple wasn't available, so had to use some third party option). I bought a brand new official charger last week, but that hasn't helped. I'm thinking I may need to replace the charging port? It's looking a little charred on both the outer pins.
I understand this is normally a battery issue, but based off the above info do you think the charging port change could be a goner?
Also I have reset SMC and things like that. It's got me a bit stumped. Any help appreciated.
It’s very similar to this thread here btw: (marked as solved but certainly isn’t) MacBook Pro still won't charge after replacing everything.
Hmm, may have to place the image here
Is this a good question?
