Why is the Hypermac MBP-222 external battery not charging?
Magsafe lead began to flicker first dull then bright again with the battery indicator on the tool bar showing charge then not charging respectively.
Then it began to flicker from dull to off and the battery indicator on the toolbar changed from not charging to running on internal battery.
Then it stayed off for good.
The USB port on the Hypermac works fine.
I suspected the MagSafe power lead and this was replaced with out any improvement.
The original MagSafe lead tested ok on another unit.
During my trouble shooting it was noted that when some books were placed upon the Hypermac battery while it was plugged into the MacBook it briefly worked.
I then squeezed the end of the Hypermac and the MagSafe lead got brighter and the battery indicator on the MacBooks desktop showed charge.
How is this best repaired ?
Is this a good question?
