The laptop does not charge, can anyone assist?


I have just had this MacBook Pro 13" Two Thunderbolt Port Late 2020 to repair its screen but noticed before and after screen replacement it does seem to charge as I’m not using the original USB-C charger? Would this be the problem?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You do need to use the correct wattage charger either the original 61W USB-C Power Adapter or the newer 67W USB-C Power Adapter Using anything less will likely not work.

The given USB-C cable needs to be a power version vs a data version. Not all cables are wired fully and/or don't offer the correct gaged wires so it can't properly power the system USB-C Charge Cable (1 m)
