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.

I have Macbook pro and spill water.It is now 6days and dying out.Very hard to remove battery as Macbook has 6-8 screws to remove batteryMac book is only year old.Is there any easy way to start without


Was it just water or was there any salt or sugar in the liquid water? Did you set the Macbook vertical ( so the water would not sit on the motherboard?
BTW: The first thing you should have done after water spillage was to remove power and the battery!

Resetting the PRAM may do the trick:
You reset the PRAM by rebooting a Mac and then immediately hold down the Command+Option+P+R keys, you will then hear the Mac reboot sound again, signifying your PRAM has been reset. You must hit the key combination before the grey screen appears otherwise it won't work.

you've tried rebooting, you've reset the PRAM, you've done it all, but your Mac is still behaving strangely. What next? In certain circumstances, resetting your Mac's System Management Controller (SMC) can be a solution. This is sometimes necessary to restore normal lower level system functionality to your Mac.

Here's how to reset the SMC on any type of Mac (and any version of OS X) and the type of problems that it may resolve.
When & Why Reset SMC on a Mac? Some Common Hardware Reasons

Typically it's power and hardware related issues that can be helped or resolved by resetting a Mac SMC, particularly if you're having these types of problems:

* Issues with your Mac's cooling fans and fan management: fans run constantly at high speed, fans run high despite low CPU usage and adequate ventilation, fans not working at all, etc

* Power management and battery problems: Mac isn't turning on, sleep isn't working, random shutdowns and reboots, battery isn't charging, Mac won't wake from sleep etc

* Light problems and improper lighting management: battery indicator lights aren't working, display backlighting isn't adjusting to ambient light changes, keyboard backlights not working, etc

* Video and external displays not working: display brightness functionality not working properly, target video mode isn't working properly, external display isn't working, etc

* General performance and functionality problems: abnormally sluggish behavior despite no CPU or disk usage, external ports not working, airport & bluetooth aren't showing up, external devices are not being found, etc

So now that you've concluded you need to reset your SMC (Note that the SMC is on Intel Mac's only), here's how to do it on MacBook's, MacBook Pro's, iMac's, Mac Mini's, and Mac Pro's. Notice that the reset instructions are different for MacBook and MacBook Pro's if you have an internal or detachable battery.
Reset SMC of a MacBook Air, MacBook Pro Retina, or MacBook Pro's with an internal non-removable battery

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

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,
Kerry

The built in mouse on my MacBook 2007 is stuck, clicker stuck. What can I do?


HiDiane
You need to takje it to an Apple store. Some of these macbooks had faulty batteries which Apple has been replacing.
What happens is the battery swells and it is located underneath the track-pad. This swelling prevents the click being depressed.
It's important that you get it checked straight away as these batteries can be dangerous.

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:

  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.

Hi - I have a macbook and seem to have locked the keyboard - if I plug a mouse in at the USB it works but the mouse on the macbook isn't responded, nor are any of the other keys - is there a simple...


Hello sarahscarah,

I've repaired a fair share of Macbooks with the same issue, but just to make sure it is what I think it is I'll need you to do a few things.

This issue is thought to be caused by a bent/warped ribbon cable that is located under the battery. This cable is what connects the trackpad and keyboard to the rest of your computer. To test if this is the problem do the following.

  1. Verify that an external keyboard and mouse will work with your Macbook when plugged in to a USB port.
  2. Connect your Macbook to your power adapter and plug into wall.
  3. Unlock your battery by turning the dial on the bottom of your Macbook with a coin.
  4. Remove the battery and set it aside.
  5. Press down on the exposed trackpad cable with your finger.
  6. While pressing down on this cable try typing on your Macbook's keyboard and moving the cursor with the trackpad.

If this works then you've solved it, you can place a piece of "Kapton Tape" over this cable to hold it down, but this is a temporary fix. You will probably need your trackpad and keyboard replaced. If your macbook is still under warranty take it to an Apple store, show them the problem and have it fixed or replaced. If its out of warranty you'll be looking at a $200-$300 repair to have the trackpad/keyboard replaced by a technician.

Here's a picture of the exposed trackpad cable for reference.

Hope this helps, if so please leave positive feedback. Thank you.

Connecting to a macbook


Hi.

This is all what you just need to do. You need to get you mac address first and edit it using a computer that is currently connect to your router as you are using Mac filtering. To check your mac address :

To find the serial number located on the computer If the MacBook is not turned on, you can open the computer's battery bay to find the serial number.
The MacBook serial number and Ethernet ID (also called a MAC address) are located on the bottom of the computer, underneath the battery, in the battery bay.
