I have tried the following:

Connected to computer with usb-c to usb-a charging cable.

Charged Trackpad overnight while power is on and while power is off.

Reset the bluetooth

Removed all Bluetooth Devices

Reset PRAM

Tried to add to a MacMini

Nothing works.

  • The Trackpad could be dead. Did you try it with other computers? Do other BT devices work with your Mac? – Allan Dec 5 '18 at 2:26
  • how old is it ? and it is not showing on BT list ? When you start a Magic Trackpad, it announces itself over bluetooth : Does it ? – Ruskes Dec 5 '18 at 2:39

    The Apple Magic TrackPad 2 can be used through wired USB, no Bluetooth required! ..so does it work ? – Ruskes Dec 5 '18 at 2:56
  • Make sure the Trackpad is powered on (there is a switch on the back)
  • Make sure you are using the Trackpad with a Mac that has Bluetooth 4.0 and runs at least OS X v10.11
  • Connect the Trackpad to your Mac with a USB to Lightning Cable
  • A message should appear that it is now paired. Do not remove the cable before that.
