Ok, so basically my charger fell apart on my MacBook pro(2010) and I didn't have the money for a new charger, I got it in the states too if that's relevant. Basically my laptop will not charge, I bought a new charger yesterday and it's still no-use

Ok, so basically my charger fell apart on my MacBook pro(2010) and I didn't have the money for a new charger, I got it in the states too if that's relevant. Basically my laptop will not charge, I bought a new charger yesterday and it's still no-use,not charging . No green or orange light coming on on the new charger either.

It is one of the items that Apple gets criticized at regular intervals. The MagSafe connector is proprietary and unlicensable, so the company has a lock-in on the power options. And as you have now found out, your hijinks trying to avoid buying an expensive new charger may have caused more damage and led to a total no-charge condition.
If lucky and no physical damage has occurred (there IS a fuse in there somewhere on the circuit boards), maybe resetting the SMC can restore charge functionality, provided there is still enough juice: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964

  • HT1695 I have the 1st generation iPad.  All of a sudden it will not connect to my wi-fi.  It finds my wi-fi, but will not totally connect.  I have done everything...reset network, rebooted router etc and it still will not connect.  Any suggestions?

    I have the 1st generation iPad.  All of a sudden it will not connect to my wi-fi.  It finds my wi-fi, but will not totally connect.  I have done everything...reset network, rebooted router etc and it still will not connect.  My other divices are connected....iPhone and 3 Macs.  Any suggestions?

    Some things to try first:
    1. Turn Off your iPad. Then turn Off (disconnect power cord for 30 seconds or longer) the wireless router & then back On. Now boot your iPad. Hopefully it will see the WiFi.
    2. Go to Settings>Wi-Fi and turn Off. Then while at Settings>Wi-Fi, turn back On and chose a Network.
    3. Change the channel on your wireless router (Auto or Channel 6 is best). Instructions at http://macintoshhowto.com/advanced/how-to-get-a-good-range-on-your-wireless-netw ork.html
    4. Go into your router security settings and change from WEP to WPA with AES.
    5.  Renew IP Address: (especially if you are droping internet connection)
        •    Launch Settings app
        •    Tap on Wi-Fi
        •    Tap on the blue arrow of the Wi-Fi network that you connect to from the list
        •    In the window that opens, tap on the Renew Lease button

  • I have a macbook pro 2010, And my display will show up as blue until i tap the back of it excessively. I dont know what the problem is. Any ideas?

    Is this a fixable problem that wont cost more than the computer is worth?

    It may be a faulty display connection cable.  Only an Apple store genius bar will be able to definitively diagnose the issue and provide you with the actual repair costs.
    Ciao.
    If it is the cable, that should be relatively inexpensive.  If it is the display, that will not be inexpensive.

  • How do I get an app to show up after I have mistakenly deleted it during the process of the app updating. The App Store says that it is purchased but it will not open when I push open

    Help!

    Does it show on your device's taskbar (double-click the home button) ? If it does then try closing it from there (swipe/drag it up and off the top of the screen).
    If it still doesn't open, or if you can't find it on the taskbar, then have you tried a soft-reset to see if you can open or download it after the device has restarted ? Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the equivalent of a reboot.

  • Hello.  I recently pieced together a late 2008 MacBook Pro 15".  Everything works fine except the battery constantly goes between "not charging" and "calculating" or, rarely "charging". It does charge after a long while and will report that it is charged.

    Hello.  I recently pieced together a late 2008 MacBook Pro 15".  Everything works fine except the battery constantly goes between "not charging" and "calculating" or, rarely "charging". It does charge after a long while and will report that it is charged.
    I have reset the NVRAM and the SMC a couple of time but that didn't work so I ran an Apple Hardware Test and while testing the logic board it gives the following error:
    4SNS/1/40000000 LB1T
    I've done some research and found this is a temperature sensor related to the battery, but cannot find where the sensor is located in the computer.  Would you know how I can find the sensor to test it?  Could my battery problem be related to something else?  Would a fresh install of Lion help?
    Thank you!
    Mike
    Two pieces of information that may or may not b helpful, the hard drive is from my early 2008 MBP and the only test disc I have access to is from an iMac.

    Why do you have LION installed on that older machine?
    So you say you built a macbook from a bucket of parts eh?   Kudos
    heres a pic of the battery temp sensor

  • My MacBook Pro will not turn on, bought a new charge still no power, My MacBook Pro will not turn on, bought a new charge still no power

    My MacBook pro will not turn on bought a new charger and it still will not turn on

    Then your problem isn't with the charger/adapter. Which model MacBook Pro do you have (e.g., "15-inch Late 2011")?
    It's likely that you'd be best served by taking your machine into your local Apple Store or AASP and having the Apple techs run diagnostics. The diagnosis and estimate to repair should be free.

  • Laptop will not power on when power button is pressed

    I have a Pavilion m6
    model: m6-1045dx
    Laptop will not power on when I press the power button. It is fully charged. The only light that will come on is the light indicating that it is fully charged. I have tried removing the  battery and then putting it back in but that did not work. I use this laptop for college and it is time to go back to school. Please help!

    Try a hard reset, works sometimes.Disconnect all external devices first.
    1-remove power cord and battery
    2-press power button for 30 seconds
    3-reinstall only power cord for first startup.
    4-try power on

  • I upgraded for Firefox 4 and now my simplePass identity protection (biometric scanner) on my laptop will not work. WHY? It still works with IE but I don't use IE.

    I upgraded for Firefox 4 and now my HP SimplePass Identity Protection (biometric scanner) on my laptop will not work. WHY? It still works with IE but I don't use IE. It worked with the previous Firefox version but now when I use the internet, it doesn't even acknowledge I have the scanner. When I run my finger over it, it opens the settings panel but does not allow use of the already saved information or allow new information to be entered. I need this corrected. Any suggestions?

    I asked this same question, and just received a response:
    "Thank you for contacting DigitalPersona. There will be no update releases
    for DigitalPersona Personal in the future. There will be no updates for
    Firefox 4 nor Internet Explorer 9. IF they work they work, if they do
    not work with DPPersonal, then you will have to decide to either keep
    DPPersonal and forgo Firefox 4 or IE 9, or vice versa. DigitalPersona
    is leaving the consumer market and is focusing on business applications.
    In fact, DigitalPersona Personal will not longer be supported after
    Mid-April of this year.
    We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause. Sincerely, Tech Team "
    In other words, there will be NO update.

    - Select and delete this key and this key ONLY. DO NOT delete the entire Winlogon folder of keys.
    - Close Regedit with the RED "X"and reboot the machine
