I had similar problem, where the battery was showing as not existing. Took it to the Apple Store, and their tests showed no battery, which confused them. They took it in the back and returned a few mins later. It was the battery power meter on the side of the MacBook Pro, you know the one that lights up with 6 tiny white lights? The battery pack is ...

Possible bad news, you should have gotten Replace Battery warnings way before, that you could not missed. What it indicates is your Logic board is failing where the SMC chip sits on it. You can open it and take battery out, then place it back in, but that is slim hope. Before you spend a fortune in replacing the logic board: There is a small circuit build ...

Unfortunately I can't see the image you posted right now (due to proxy filtering) but if it says "Service Battery" you can either live with it or buy a new battery. Chances are the battery's integrated status monitor is either correctly identifying a battery failure or the the monitor itself has failed. There isn't a "fix" for this other than replacement. If ...

You probably knocked the battery connector out. Here's a link to a repair guide to replacing the whole battery, which is more than you need. Do steps 1 and 2 to open your computer up, and then make sure the battery connector in Step 3 is 100% plugged in. If it's fully plugged in and it's still not working, the battery itself is probably shot.

It is possible that there is a problem with the port on the computer, either with the device now being blocked (which is sometimes done via policy in enterprise environments) or the port malfunctioning/disabled altogether. Do other devices, such as flash drives, work if you plug them into the same USB port you were using with your iPhone? If no devices are ...

Best you can do is to tap the Home button. Green Battery level, top right, & briefly a charge percentage under the current time are your easiest indicators. When you first plug it in a double-buzz or a 'mim' sound is your clue it recognised the charger & is now charging.

Try retting the System Management Controller [SMC] (instructions here). This may be because some settings may be messed up. There may also be a short circuit in your charger which may be causing your MacBook Pro to crash since it is the only way to protect its self (this is just a guess) If this doesn't work please let me know and I will try and find ...

Ok everyone thanks a lot for your answers and comments, it turned out magsafe, logic board and charger, all three needed to be replaced. Seems that logic board is not mandatory for the Mbp to be on.

It is possible the logic board needs to be replaced. I would try resetting your SMC (manages the power in the laptop): Shut down the computer. Plug in the MagSafe power adapter to a power source, connecting it to the Mac if its not already connected. On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the ...

Either you're using your laptop heavily or you need to upgrade your charger with higher power (e.g. from 65Watt to 85Watt) so it can charge faster. This usually happens when you take/borrow charger from other MacBook Air and you'll try to charge your MacBook Pro (which could have Core i7 instead of i5). You can click on Battery icon to see which apps are ...
