Yesterday, all of a sudden, my macbook pro (15 inch early-2016) started to forget how to charge its battery.
According to the battery icon, almost everything looks great but one thing. It doesn't charge the battery. (I made some pictures so you can get a visual about the issue)
Whats really interesting about this, is that my charger does work with other macbook pros. Some of my colleagues have the very same macbook as I do and the magsafe goes on, starts with green, then changes to amber; the battery status says says charging.
Another interesting habit is, that when the battery charge drops below a certain percentage, it starts to charge itself, but only with other dhargers. Yesterday I discharged the battery until the laptop didn't boot anymore but said there's no charge. I connected the charger of my MBA, nothing happened. I plugged it into my MBA the indicator light started with green, then I plugged it back into the MBP and it started charging. Im sitting now on a charge of 85% but after I disconnected at that point it didn't charge anymore.
The following pictures describe everything I could put into words.
What I tried so far:
- I did an SMC/PRAM reset
- battery discharge
- plugging the power cord into another MB and then back
