Does ksm 27 shure need a program to use on a MacBook air?


This mic is not a USB mic so it will need an adapter to go from XLR connector to USB.
The Mac OS should see the microphone once it is connected. Open the System Preferences, Sound control panel and choose the new mic input. It should now be available in the programs that access that input.

Brand new apple dvd drive will not accept dvd


The DVD works by just pushing it in far enough till you get resistance, then the drive pulls the DVD in by itself. If after it pulls the DVD in, it just ejects it, The DVD drive thinks you are using an incompatible disk.

You can also try resetting the SMC.
This is how to reset SMC on most modern Mac laptops:

Shutdown your MacBook Air / MacBook Pro
Connect the power adapter to your Mac
On the MacBook/Pro's keyboard, hold down the Shift+Control+Option keys and the Power button at the same time
Release all keys and the power button at the same time
Boot your Mac as usual

Here's the key sequence to hold down:

Reset the SMC of a MacBook Air or Retina MacBook Pro

Do keep in mind that by resetting the SMC you will lose power specific settings, like the time it takes to sleep a Mac and other customizations to power settings. No big deal, but if you have made many changes to your hardware behavior you will want to adjust stuff like sleep behavior again.
Reset SMC of an iMac, Mac Pro, Mac Mini

Resetting SMC is different for non-portable Macs:

Shut down your Mac
Disconnect the power cord
Press and hold the Mac's power button for 5 seconds
Release the button
Reattach the power cables and boot the Mac as usual

Reset the SMC of a MacBook or MacBook Pro's with detachable batteries

sad mac reset the smc Older MacBook laptops with a removable battery can reset SMC with the following approach:

Shutdown the MacBook/Pro and remove the battery
Disconnect the power adapter, hold the Power Key for 10 seconds
Release the power key and reconnect your battery and power adapter
Turn your Mac on
Let boot as usual

Hopefully that will clear up your problems, if not it might be worth a visit to the Apple Store or a certified repair center.

Happy New Year,

Lap top won't come on


Hi,

Follow the steps below and it should solve your mac problem..

  1. Disconnect any devices connected to the computer including printers, hubs, and third-party keyboards or mice, and test the computer again by trying to turn it on.
  2. If you're using a MacBook or MacBook Pro, check the battery level. Press the small button on the battery or on the side of the computer. You should see lights indicating the battery's level of charge. If you see just one light blinking, the battery needs to be recharged. Use the fluorescent pen computer with the adapter connected to recharge the battery.
  3. Unplug the power adapter from the electrical outlet and from the MacBook, MacBook Air, or MacBook Pro. Wait one minute. Plug it back into the wall first, then to the computer. Make sure the electrical outlet is working by plugging in another device (such as a lamp). When you plug the adapter back into the computer, the PowerBook G4 Battery 15" power adapter LEDs should light up green or amber.
  4. Inspect the MagSafe port on the computer for debris, such as metal stuck to the magnet in the port, which might prevent the connector from seating properly. On the adapter side, look at the DC connector for dust or other debris and check whether pins are missing, bent, or stuck down. If you find any of these to be true, see Apple Portables: Troubleshooting MagSafe adapters for instructions on cleaning the adapter.
  5. Make sure you are using the adapter that was designed for your computer. If you aren't sure or if you need a new adapter,learn which adapter is appropriate for your computer.
  6. Press the control key, the command key, and the sony vgp-bps13a/b battery power button simultaneously and hold for three seconds to try to restart the computer.
  7. Reset the PRAM. After pressing the power button, hold down these keys simultaneously: Command-Option-P-R, until you hear the startup chime at least one additional time after the initial startup chime.
  8. Reset the SMC for the MacBook And MacBook Pro by removing the AC power, removing the sony vgp-bps13 battery and then holding down the power button for five seconds. On the MacBook Air, press (left) Shift-Control-Option along with the power button once. Note: You must use the keys on the left side of the MacBook Air keyboard.
  9. If you recently installed additional memory, make sure it is correctly installed and is compatible with your computer. Remove the new memory to see if the computer starts up properly without it.
  10. If you are still unable to start up your computer after trying each of these steps, schedule a service appointment with either an Apple Retail Store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider.
Regards,
Ron

  • Remove the battery.
  • Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
  • Release the power button.
  • Reconnect the battery and MagSafe power adapter.

    My laptop has suddenly frozen, i turned it off by the power button and whenever i try to turn it on it turns white screen, then shutsoff after 3-5minutes.


    Resolution

    2. If you're using a MacBook or MacBook Pro, check the battery level. Press the small button on the battery or on the side of the computer.

    9. If you recently installed additional memory, make sure it is correctly installed and is compatible with your computer. Remove the new memory to see if the computer starts up properly without it.
    Also:
    The MacBook SMC Firmware Update v1.1 improves the MacBook's internal monitoring system and addresses issues with unexpected shutdowns. This update is recommended for all MacBook systems, including those that received warranty repair.
    You can use the Software Update feature of System Preferences, or download the MacBook SMC Firmware Update v1.1 from Apple Software Downloads.
    Note: If your MacBook is running Mac OS X 10.4.6, you won't be able to see the SMC Update until you update to Mac OS X 10.4.8. Once you have updated your system software, the SMC Update will appear as an option in Software Updates.
    MacBooks running Mac OS X 10.4.7 will be able to download and install the SMC Update, so it is not essential that you update your system software, although Apple always recommends updating to the latest version of the system software.
    If your MacBook is in a state where it will not remain on long enough to install the update, wait for the issue to reproduce itself. Once the MacBook has turned itself off, turn the computer on by holding the power button down. Keep the button down until you hear a single long tone. Once you hear the tone you can release the button, install the recommended updates, and restart normally.

    Try turning off Airport. Your computer may be finding a wireless network and automatically switching to it, and getting an intermittent signal. Just a guess, but for a good ethernet connection you want to disable the Airport searching feature anyway.
    Open the System Preferences application, select "Network" and right on the top left of the resulting window there's a pretty big button that will either say "Turn Airport On" or "Turn Airport Off" - just turn it off if it's not already ...

    My MacBook don't start. Is the power button? Is any password to solve this?


    A password would not prevent your Macbook from starting, so I don't think that is the issue.

    There are several variables to consider when it comes to power issues with an Apple Macbook.
    For one, is your battery charged where you can test it without the MagSafe adapter, to see if the Macbook will start up?
    • Also, is the MagSafe Adapter itself, not frayed or damaged, is free of debris and is able to connect securely to your Macbook?

    If you have checked both of these sources for powering up your Macbook and you still cannot turn your Macbook on, then that is a hardware issue.

    Sources of hardware issues with your model of Apple portable notebooks are:
    * The Power supply: (source of power to the main logic board in the Macbook, and connects to the MagSafe port which of course connects the MagSafe adapter into a external power source - i.e: "a wall power socket")

    * The Main Logic board: the main board in your Macbook which contains all processors, RAM, audio & video ports, ethernet, USB and other ports and components-including the Power Supply.

    * RAM- If your RAM (Memory) goes bad, this can also impact the start up of your Macbook
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    A good way to test and see if you can start your Macbook up is to try this procedure below:

    -SMC RESET-
    The System Management Controller is an integrated circuit (computer chip) that is usually on the logic board of your Mac computer.

    It is responsible for power management of the computer. It controls backlighting, hard disk spin down, sleep and wake, some charging aspects, trackpad control, and some input/output as it relates to the computer sleeping.

    • If the computer is on, turn it off.
    • Disconnect the AC adapter and remove the
    computer's battery.

    • Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds
    and then release the button.

    • Reconnect the battery and AC Adapter.

    • Press the power button to restart the computer

    **IF you cannot get you Macbook powered up using this SMC Reset, that means you will need to take your Macbook in to your local Apple retail store Genius bar or Apple-authorized service center to have a diagnostics performed on your Macbook.

    I am sure this will help guide you in the right direction toward address this issue.
    Let me know if you have more questions regarding this issue.

    Thanks!

    Laptop not charging


    Double check and make sure that the AC power cord is ok and that it's firmly connected to the laptop. Also check and make sure the cord or part that goes into the AC adapter converter is plugged all the way in. Finally, most laptops will have some sort of a "Plugged in" indicator or LED light on the laptop indicating that it's plugged into 120V AC. If you seen nothing like this, then it is most likely the power cord. If your battery is bad or was going bad, the laptop should still work when plugged in. Finally, make sure that your battery is firmly seated into the laptop. Some laptops will not function when there is no battery, even when plugged in. If you determine that either the battery or plug is defective, of course, you can order a replacement online or from the manufacturer. You can also try EBAY for better prices.

    Good luck!
