View Full Version : Battery not charging?

16th May 2010, 09:14 PM

Just bought a second hand mac - looks in good condition and the rest seems to be working fine. BUT - the battery - well, more like the minute I pull the cable off, it won't charge? The battery icon - says "not charging".. is it just the battery drained and overworked or is there something I can jiggle to get it to work again?

I assume you are using a macbook.

First of all try removing the battery (depends how on what model as to how) and reseating it. You second bet would be to click on the battery icon, and checking the 'battery status'. This should give you a rough indication of how the battery is going.
