If your MacBook’s battery is not charging, it can be frustrating, but there are several steps you can take to troubleshoot and potentially resolve the issue:
Top 10 Troubleshooting steps for MacBook Battery as follow:
Check the Power Adapter and Cable: Ensure that the power adapter and cable are securely connected to both the MacBook and the power outlet. Inspect the cable for any signs of damage, such as fraying or breaks.
Try a Different Power Outlet: Sometimes, the issue may be with the power outlet. Try plugging the power adapter into a different outlet to see if the MacBook starts charging.
Inspect the MagSafe or USB-C connector: If you have a MacBook with a MagSafe connector or a USB-C connector, check for any debris, dirt, or damage in the port. Clean the port carefully with compressed air or a soft brush.
Restart the MacBook: A simple restart can sometimes resolve charging issues. Save your work and restart your MacBook to see if it starts charging normally.
Reset the SMC (System Management Controller): Resetting the SMC can often resolve charging-related issues. The process for resetting the SMC varies depending on the model of your MacBook. You can find instructions for your specific model on Apple’s support website.
Check for software updates: Make sure your MacBook’s operating system is up-to-date. Go to the Apple menu > System Preferences > Software Update and install any available updates.
Run Apple Diagnostics: Apple Diagnostics can help identify hardware issues with your MacBook, including battery and charging problems. Restart your MacBook and hold down the D key while it boots up to run diagnostics.
Try a Different Power Adapter: If you have access to another compatible power adapter, try using it to charge your MacBook. This can help determine if the issue is with the power adapter or the MacBook itself.
Inspect the battery’s health. Open the Apple Menu > About This Mac > System Report > Power. Look for the “Battery Information” section and check the “Condition” field. If it says “Service Battery,” it may indicate that the battery needs to be replaced.
Contact expert support: If none of the above steps resolve the issue, it’s possible that there’s a hardware problem with your MacBook’s battery or charging system. Contact Any Expert Support or visit RepairZone, an authorized service provider, for further assistance.
