    I spilt some tea over the battery, and my macbook no longer works without the charger plugged in.

    The problem is, i got a new battery and it still did not work
    therefore the problem is possibly the actual logic board, which will probably costs a fair bit

    my poor poor computer i have only had it for two weeks!

Unfortunately its a genuine Apple fault and only solution is to replace battery.

However you can try to update battery software first:

My MacBook wont charge


So does the organge light still not come on now? If it doesn't try a different charger first. If that fails, your DC-Jack module or logic board may need to be replaced. There are detailed instructions on how to do the restore online. Here is an Macbook Repair Guide that shows how to open a Macbook. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Macbook Repair.

Unexpected shutdown with fresh battery ...only cycled 23 times so far. Mac shuts down after about 3 minutes....then shuts down on boot sequence after that. No warning...just shuts down instantly. Macbook...


"Shuts down instantly without warning" is the hallmark of a faulty battery. "All five lights on" is meaningless, as batteries with this fault go from 100% to 0% in a finger-snap. Assuming your battery is under warranty, it should be replaced at no charge.

Hi I have a MacBook Intel 2007. The other night the harddisk when carzy and the computer stopped. When I tried to reboot the screen displayed a folder with a ? symbol in the center. The Mac did not seem...


I would have put a system disk into the macbook and pressed the C key on the keyboard. This should boot the mac. Once in the instal area go up the menu bar and select disk utility and run the hard disk verify to check if the hard drive is functioning. If the mac does not boot up it is not the hard drive and then the only option you have is to take it to an apple mac authorised centre.

MacBook wont run from battery


Apple does have a battery recall/fixing procedure on certain macbooks and macbook pros.

The battery of a MacBook or MacBook Pro computer may:
  • Appear to have no charge (zero percent)
  • Be unable to power the computer by itself; the computer might work only when it is connected to the MagSafe power adaptor, which only shows a green LED
  • Appear with a black "X" icon on the menu bar

  1. Shut down, then remove and reinstall the battery. Test for the issue(s) again.
  2. Connect the MagSafe power adaptor (if you haven't already) and see if the behavior continues.
  3. If the issue(s) persist, download and install the Mac OS X 10.4.9 Update.
  4. If the issue(s) persist, Download and install Battery Update 1.2.
If, after installing the Mac OS X 10.4.9 Update and Battery Update 1.2, a black "X" still appears in the menu bar, contact apple by calling 1-800-MY-APPLE (1-800-692-7753)
