Answer to: AC power plug will not charge or run computerThanks for all the responses. Here's sequence of events. My son, who has had the computer for a couple of years, filled me in on the details. He said the central plug connection on the recharger broke off in the computer and he was not able to either get it out or recharge it. He took it to an Apple store where they tried to remove it with a magnet with no luck. He brought it home and that's where I came in. I had another 65W recharger and plugged it in. I wasn't used to seeing the light change from green to amber that quickly and assumed it was a malfunction. Apparently the retained piece had either loosened or fallen out in transit, was no longer preventing the charger from being plugged in, and I was simply not giving it long enough to recharge before I wrote the original question. It has now recharged and functioning reasonably well. Thanks again. Good forum. Mark Nissenbaum.
