It looks like it's the SATA Flex cable used in the MacBook Pro that has died. I have the same laptop and it's died as well. You can either go to the Apple Store to have it replaced for a nominal fee, or do it yourself by ordering this part.

I had the same problem, apparently my iPad couldn't be any more charged. So I brought it to a shop, and voila, they could charge it. Point being to really really use the original "fat" charger and not another one (like the thin one of an iPhone). The chargers differ in the maximal current they can supply (more than 2A is needed for the iPad).

My issue to high CPU utilization of opendirectoryd was that some robot on the Internet was trying different passwords to break into my computer via ssh. At least, that's what I think this meant: 8/25/15 12:20:51.173 PM sshd[66230]: error: PAM: authentication error for root from 222.186.21.218 via 192.168.0.3 8/25/15 12:20:51.189 PM sshd[66191]: error: PAM: ...

I've just noticed the same issue with the public beta of El Capitan build 15A243d when connecting an iPad 3 to charge and have reported it to Apple. In my case I had neither iTunes or Photos open and also selected the iPad to "Not Trust" the computer as I want only wanting to charge the iPad. So this appears to be a bug. Hopefully this will be fixed in a ...

I found an article that suggests some troubleshooting steps, I'll summarize it here: Test the drive: copy some files to find out if your read / write speeds are normal. This will help you rule out your internal or server drive. Check the drive for errors: Again, you can check internal and server drives for errors (bad blocks, permission problems). Run a ...

I would go for my 'make sure it's all OK' recipe for starters... Fix permissions [which you did already], Verify & if necessary Repair disk, using Disk Utility Reset Home folder permissions & ACLs using OnyX - Maintenance tab/permissions, tick the box at the top then Execute. Update or [re-apply if already updated] to 10.10.5 using the 10.10.5 ...

So we found the Solution: Connect your iPhone/Camera and reopen Photos.app or iPhoto Close iPhoto or Photos.app Disconnect your iPhone/Camera Open Photos/iPhoto again now the PTPCamera Process should be terminated gracefully and won't spawn again in a busy waiting loop. You do not have to do this steps all the time, only necessary to terminate the ...

I'd be tempted to go for the 'fix it even if it's not broken' approach... Fix permissions, check & if necessary repair disk, using Disk Utility Reset Home folder permissions & ACLs using OnyX - Maintenance tab/permissions, tick the box at the top then Execute. Update to 10.10.5 using the 10.10.5 combo update, not the delta from App Store

I would just force quit the process, and if that doesn't work, I'd make a command line script to constantly send the "kill" command.

An iPhone 5 I had got stuck searching for signal forever also, it was caused by the data settings. I had to turn Cellular Data ON to correct the secondary setting; LTE I believe. Then I could turn it back off (Cellular Data).

I would connect that Mac to another running back and copy any files that are not backed up. Then I would then erase the hard drive/ partition and reinstall whatever operating system I wanted to run on it.

Mail app has a weird tendency to mix SMTP servers, which may be the cause of your issue. Open Mail.app, go to Preferences > Accounts and select one of your accounts. Look for the "Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP):" dropdown; click on it and then on "Edit SMTP server list". Delete all SMTP servers that don't correspond to the accounts that you're trying to ...
