My magsafe charger has no green light, but my mac is charging. No green light

Mac charging still

I have tried a SMC reset and still, no green light.

  • I'm not sure what you are asking. The light should be orange while charging, right. Did you try a different charger / different Mac? – n1000 Jan 29 '17 at 12:00
  • the charger works on all other computers, what i am asking is, why is my charger neither green or orange, I am aware that this could be an issue with the SMC, why cant you understand what I am asking? – ozzie Jan 29 '17 at 12:02

  • just poking in the dark here: did you try cleaning the connections and does the issue persist when you connect the Magsafe the other way around? – n1000 Jan 29 '17 at 12:06
  • oh and what happens when the battery is full? – n1000 Jan 29 '17 at 12:08

Please try the following to reset the charging options:

  • Shut down your Mac.
  • Unplug the MagSafe or USB-C power adapter from your computer.
  • Using the built-in keyboard, press Shift-Control-Option on the left side of the keyboard, then press the power button at the same time. Hold these keys and the power button for 10 seconds.
  • Release all keys.
  • Reconnect the power adapter.
  • Press the power button again to turn on your Mac.
