I have a Mid-2009 MacBook Pro, and all was well before the weekend. Now when I try to fit in the MagSafe charger to the macbook, I am unable to fit it in correctly (but as you can see, it is charging):
When I tried to see what was in the macbook side of the adapter, I see some small balls:
These are not stationary but are sticking to the magnet there. Tiny little balls like this:
The plug looks like this:
Now, I am worried whether the magsafe power adapter has somehow started "disintegrating" (touch wood) or are these some kind of debris I collected somewhere. All was fine on friday and I travelled with my macbook pro over the weekend. I did not use the charger, neither did I travel to some industrial area to collect metallic debris.
Long story short: should I remove these balls and forget all these, or is it something bigger to worry...
