Charger shortage

Try and borrow a charger from someone and see if that works, or even use your charger on someone elses macbook. Then you can work out if it's the charger that's faulty which will mean buying a new one or if it's the laptop that's faulty. What you want to do if it's the latter is entirely up to you.

Overheats shuts down

It is tempting to use the Mac on a pillow on your lap. This will "insulate" it and cause heating issues. Or you may be using it where it cannot allow enough airflow to cool it

I have got apple macbook pro unibody , my charger light is blinking and not charging battery while my laptop is on but when i shut down my laptop its connecting and disconnecting for 10 seconds interval

Try charging your laptop with a spare charger. If your laptop is still under warranty, make an appointment with a genius bar representative at a local Apple store to diagnose your laptop's issue and replace the charger.

Do not use the USB ports to charge any external devices from your laptop! Instead use the chargers they were packaged with.

If the spare charger doesn't work after an hour of charging you will have to reset the System Management Controller with the Mac turned off:
Press Shift-Control-Option-Power key combination.
Release and press the power button.

If resetting the SMC doesn't work try resetting the PRAM. Keep in mind that you have to enter the key combination before the grey screen appears!

Reboot your laptop.
Immediately hold down Command-Option-P-R combination.
A reboot sound should confirm the reset.

Mac won't turn on

Plug the laptop into the wall with the included charger. If that does not fix the problem, check that the battery is properly installed- it should be flush with the rest of the computer and locked in place.

Keep getting message that my battery in low, also laptop goes dead if not connected to cherger.

atteries have a limited life and most need to be replaced every 12 to 24 months. If that amount of time has lapsed since you've replaced the battery, or if damage was done to the battery, such as a spill or overheating, the battery may be dead Unplug the laptop from the wall charger. Remove the battery from the laptop. The battery is located on the underside of the laptop and usually slides out, or can be popped out by sliding the battery release buttons next to the battery.2 Dip a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol. Rub the cotton swab into the battery contacts to remove dirt and dust. Use a cloth dampened with water to wipe dust from the rest of the battery and battery housing unit. If dust is on the connectors, it can block or impede charging. Snap the battery back into place on the laptop.3 Plug the laptop wall charger into the wall. Plug the other end into the laptop. Allow the laptop to charge for 24 hours.4 Disconnect the laptop wall charger from the laptop. Turn the laptop on. If the laptop does not turn on, the battery did not charge, indicating the battery is dead. If the laptop turns on, but the battery lasts for a short period of time, this is a good indication that the battery is damaged or dying.

    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.
