You can install a program from the app store called "Battery Health". It will tell you if there is anything wrong with your battery. You may need to replace the battery, you can buy the $100 battery that Apple sells, but I have bought batteries for both of my macbooks from this place: http://www.ebay.com/usr/masione_outlet?_trksid=p2047675.l2559

SOURCE: my macbook battery is not charging

This issue could be due to 2 different issues.

1. Your battery is dead.
2. Your power cable is dead.

If your power cable still lights up green when you plug it in then the issue is most likely due to your battery. Since you have a old Macbook it is probably not under warranty therefore you will have to pay for the repair. You could either have Apple replace the battery for you or if you could buy a battery online and do it yourself.

SOURCE: macbook battery not charging

If it is under a year old, then you may have a case for a free replacement by Apple. If it is older, then you'll have to buy a new battery and recycle the old one. All laptop batteries have a maximum lifespan and will have to be replaced at some point in the future.

Macbook will not hold any charge in the battery


How old is your unit? It sounds as though the battery needs to be replaced. If it is under warranty, then great! If not, a search on google will give you the information you need - ranging from where to get your unit serviced, or if you feel comfortable doing it, where to locate and how to install a new battery.

Regards.

Have a late 2007 macbook pro and it doesn't turn on..tried the pram smc and it still doesn't turn on is there any other way to fix the problem>?


Unplug the power cable; remove the battery then hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Reinstall the battery; plug the power back in and hold down the power button for 30 to 60 seconds and see if it starts.

Macbook a1181 works for a couple days and then does not want to start again for another couple days. please advise


Your best bet is to reset the System Management Controller;
(I'm not sure if your model has a removable battery or not, so I'm providing both methods)

Resetting the SMC on Mac portables with a battery you can remove
Note: Learn about removing the battery on MacBook and MacBook Pro.

  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Disconnect the MagSafe power adapter from the computer, if it's connected.
  3. Remove the battery.
  4. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
  5. Release the power button.
  6. Reconnect the battery and MagSafe power adapter.
  7. Press the power button to turn on the computer.

Resetting the SMC on portables with a battery you should not remove on your own
Note: Portable computers that have a battery you should not remove on your own include MacBook Pro (Early 2009) and later, all models of MacBook Air, and MacBook (Late 2009).

  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Plug in the MagSafe power adapter to a power source, connecting it to the Mac if its not already connected.
  3. On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time.
  4. Release all the keys and the power button at the same time.
  5. Press the power button to turn on the computer.
    Note
    : The LED on the MagSafe power adapter may change states or temporarily turn off when you reset the SMC.



...and then reset the Parameter RAM:

  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
  5. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
  6. Release the keys.

Macbook says it is not charging but plug indicates it is fully charged


This usually means that your battery is not holding a charge anymore. You will have to replace your battery. A cheaper route is to keep it always plugged in.

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.

Macbook Battery Problems


Hi Molle
To answer your last question first. It is best if possible to use the mains power when you are using your macBook and only use the battery when you cannot connect to mains.

MacBook batteries have a life span based on the number of charge cycles the battery has been through. The battery has a max of 300 cycles before it starts to loss its charge capability. SO you need to determine the health of the battery is it chargeing etc. You can do this via the apple menu and 'about this mac'

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1519

Check the health of the battery as the battery could be faulty if it has only cycled a few times or it may have gone over the 300 and is now lossing its charge in which case you'll need to get a new one.

Hope that helps

Paul
