I got some sand in my MagSafe 2 port and as a result the pins got messed up - they look “burnt,” I guess because the electrical flow got messed up. As a result it is hard to get a proper connection, I have to jiggle it around a lot, and even when it does work it gets extremely hot now.
The burn is on both sides of the connection (the cable and the computer) so I can’t fix this by just getting a new cable.
I have tried cleaning it with 70% rubbing alcohol on Q-tips as I saw recommended on another site, but it didn’t do anything at all.
Can you recommend anything else I can try? I need this computer for work so I don’t want to send it to the repair depot to fix. Also I don’t want to do anything that would make it worse, especially since I’m still under warranty.
