Your tips and insights are highly appreciated!

If the MBP operates while the charger is connected, the charger then is not the problem.  The data that you originally posted from System information>Power indicates that the battery is functional (normal).  That then indicates that there is a problem in the charging circuit.  
You might open the MBP and disconnect and reconnect the battery.  You have to be careful not to short circuit the battery.
The best option is a trip to the Apple store genius bar.  This appears to be a hardware issue.

  • MacBook Pro 13'' late 2011 battery health problem!!! HELP!!!

    I have a MacBook Pro 13'' late 2011.
    It's this normal? How do I increase my battery health?
    Can I change my battery?

    When did you buy it?
    Do you run it down to near zero % before recharging? Which is a bad thing to do.
    Do you charge it to 100% before you take it off the charger?
    Do you always disconnect the charger once it reaches 100% even if you are right next to an AC outlet. Which is a bad idea.
    Batteries only last so long. Over use it and it will go bad sooner.

  • MacBook Pro 13" Late 2011 - Internal Microphone Not Working

    Hey everyone, I've been having trouble with my internal microphone on my 13" late 2011 MacBook Pro every so often. In the Sound preferences, Internal Microphone (Built-in) has been selected on the Input tab, the input volume is on full and the audio port has been set to Sound Output so the internal mic is the only input source. However, there is no signal detected by the input level bar. There's also no input on Skype, which is the main thing I use the internal mic for. I do have an external microphone by means of a headset, although I have to set up a small mixer to have a headphone and microphone input and this takes some time, which I do use but sometimes, for convenience, I'd rather just be able to use the internal mic and use some headphones in the built-in output.
    I can't figure out why it doesn't seem to activate, usually a restart activates the mic but I haven't had much success doing this today, and really, the mic shouldn't be doing it in the first place.
    If anyone can shed some light onto this, please do!
    Thanks in advance,

    You may try a PRAM reset.  If that does not resolve the issue, make an appointment at the Apple store Genius bar.

  • Macbook Pro 17inch late 2011 keyboard backlight not working

    Recently near the end of sum me 2014 I only noticed the backlight keyboard not working at all. I have done the following to try and rectify;
    1. Reset SMC
    2. Rest NVRAM
    3. Disconnected battery and the above
    4. hardware test online, result showing no issues found.
    with all outcomes proving nil. Pressing Fn + F5 or F6 does show the brightness either increasing or decreasing but with no light. I then opened her up and disconnected a cable that was to the LHS of the RAM boards but this only powers the White Sleep LED and not the backlight keyboard on this 17inch model. My next step is to remove the mother board and find the actual cable that does power the backlight LEDs and ensure that it is connected. Similarly around the same time I noticed this with the backlights the fans were running fast. However the weather has gotten cooler and the mbp is not running fans as it was when it was in the warmer months.
    Do I have to remove the motherboard and actually make sure that the connector for the backlights hasn't been dislodged?
    Anyone out there with a 17inch mbp late 2011 that has had this problem please help.
    2.5Ghz Intel Core i7
    8GB Ram
    OSX 10.7.5
    SMC Veresion 1.70f5

    Thanks Ogelthorpe, I found an excellent video (not in english but it didnt matter) .
    What I found was that the keyboard backlight is intergrated into the black plastic cover that is between the motherboard and the back of the keys/LEDS and its all one piece back to the connector that connects to the motherboard under the LHS fan. I need more details to find out if the LEDS are controlled by a chip or what, but it seems to me that I need to visit an apple store/repairer, however this will be really difficult for me as Im in an isolated location. If there are further tests that I can conduct on my own, I would be grateful. Even if there are tests that Apple themselves conduct to find out what the problem is

  • My macbook pro 13inch late 2011.  The WiFi has stopped working.

    It picks up the network but tells me I'm not connected to the internet?

    I'm connected through a router.
    I don't really know the details of it but I know that the router works because other computers in the house are able to connect one of which is exactly the same as mine.
    Mine was working and then minutes later it just stopped connecting and hasn't connected in two days to any network, including ones that I have never had trouble with before.

  • MacBook Pro late 2011 Battery Performance drop dramatically

    MacBook Pro late 2011 Battery Performance drop dramatically
    9 months 94 cycles and its health is now at 89%

    Does the system still run off the battery only? Does it run for a few hours off the battery only? Then No it is not defective and no Apple will do nothing for you and No Applecare does not cover Consumable items which the battery is one of those.
    The only time Apple MAY, and that is BIG MAY, replace the battery is within the first year and only if Apple Deems the battery to be defective. Fat chance of that as long as the system runs off the battery for any length of time.

  • I have the new macbook pro from late 2011. when i try plugging my cannon gl2 into the mac via firewire 800 it does not show up in iMovie as an option to import from. i even have gone into my settings on the camera and changed it to vcr.

    I have the new MacBook Pro from late 2011. "the one before the new ritina display" i have a cannon gl2 video camera which is mini dv. when i plug it into my mac via firwire 800 it does not show up in the iMovie. i have set the settings on the camera to vcr mode and changed it to av->dv out. when i click on the import from camera on imovie it doesnt even show my camera in it. it just gives me the option to import video from my facetime camera. the camera is turned on the wires are connected i know for fact that its a firewire and not a usb. i know what they each look like. i bought the firewire cable and it was marked down cause it was an opened and used item. would it be possible that it could be deffected and if that is not the reason what other options do i have?

    I would say that odds are high that you have a bad cable. Maybe that is why they returned it.
    I would suggest trying a different firewire cable.
    You can find Firewire cables inexpensively at You need a 4 pin to 9 pin firewire cable.
    Here is a link.
    Other things to check:
    Is your camera plugged in to wall power (not to batteries only). Must be hooked to an AC power source to import.

  • Macbook Pro 13" (Late 2011) Bottom Plate Bulging

    Hello there,
    I own a Macbook Pro 13" (Late 2011). I have had it for sometime now.
    I noticed that the bottom plate (the piece of aluminum that can be removed) is slightly loose in the front. There is a slight retreat when I press down on it. This is not happening to my newer Late 2013 15" Macbook Pro.
    I heard that this can be caused by a swelling battery?! My battery has around 350 cycles on it.
    Should I be concerned? Is it necessary to take it to an Apple Store and have them take a look at it??
    Thanks for your answers in advance.

    That could be the case. It wouldn't hurt to have them evaluate it at an Apple Store as the appointment is free.

  • Macbook Pro 13" Late 2011 hard drive fails, how to replace hard drive?

    I have a Macbook Pro 13" Late 2011 (OS X Mountain Lion v 1.3.18 (352.4). I tried to install OS X Mavericks but it showed this error message:
    "This disk has S.M.A.R.T. errors. This disk has a hardware problem that can't be repaired. Back up as soon much data as possible and replace the disk."
    The laptop was still doing fine so I didn't do anything. Then it started to act funny: iPhoto stopped working, hangs when I watch video streaming, and it started to run really slow. I only use the laptop's basic features- internet, watching movies, editing using iMovies so it's really strange for me that the hard drive failed all of a sudden.
    I called Apple support and a kind fellow tried to troubleshoot it, thinking it was only a software problem. In the end, he said I need to bring my macbook to the service center and have the hard drive replaced. I know it will cost a lot so I want to replace the it myself.
    Here are my questions:
    1) Can this problem really be solved by just replacing the hard drive?
    2) Can I use SSD this time so my Macbook can run faster?
    3) What SSD is recommended for my late 2011 Macbook 13"?
    4) I don't have the installation disk, can I still install the OS X Mountain Lion? How?
    I am looking for other sites as well but I hope this community could share some tips too.
    Thanks a lot!

    I've switched out the hard drive on my Late 2011 model several times and I've never disconnected the battery cable.
    In my "Opinion" it is not necessary to do that. Not sure if it is or not recommended by Apple.
    I just looked at my User Manual, PDF I downloaded from Apple, and there is no mention of disconnecting the battery.
    Here's a link to the manual for my model. 2011.pdf

    85w apple charger stops charging the Mac
    I think your assumption that when the amber light goes out, the magsafe is malfunctioning is not correct.
    Some users have observed that if you push your Big MacBook Pro as hard as you can, it needs all the power from the power adapter (and possibly more from the battery) just to keep running. Thus, the charge indicator on the magsafe will go off Amber. This is weird, but is not a malfunction.
