Check your charging port and cable for debris or damage.
If you can’t force a charging connection, check your charging port and cable for debris or damage.
First, check the port on your MacBook for debris. If you see any dirt or buildup in the port, clean it out with a small, soft-bristled brush. To clean your cable, unplug it from both your MacBook and power adapter. Use the brush to clean off any visible dirt or buildup on the cable. If you still can’t charge your MacBook after cleaning your port and cable, take your MacBook, power adapter, and charging cable to an Apple Retail Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider for further help.
Connect your MacBook to a power source.
If your MacBook won’t turn on, or if it turns on but doesn’t seem to be charging, follow these steps.
First, make sure that your MacBook is connected to a power source. If it’s not, connect it to an outlet using the MacBook’s power adapter.
Once you’ve done that, press and hold the power button on your MacBook for a few seconds. If the MacBook doesn’t turn on, try plugging it into a different outlet.
If your MacBook still won’t turn on or charge, contact Apple Support for further assistance.
Check your power adapter for signs of wear or damage.
If your MacBook won’t charge, the first thing you should do is check your power adapter for any signs of wear or damage. If the adapter looks damaged, or if it’s been dropped or otherwise damaged, it may need to be replaced. If the adapter seems to be in good condition, make sure it’s properly plugged into both your MacBook and a power outlet.
Try a different power outlet or USB port.
First, try plugging your MacBook into a different power outlet. If that doesn’t work, try a different USB port on your computer. If you’re still having trouble, try resetting the SMC (System Management Controller).
Check for firmware updates.
One of the first things you should do if your MacBook won’t charge is to check for any firmware updates that might be available for your machine. Firmware updates can resolve charging issues, so it’s always worth checking to see if there are any available.
To check for firmware updates, open the App Store app on your Mac and click the Updates tab. If any firmware updates are listed, click the Update button next to each one to download and install it.
Reset the SMC on your MacBook.
The System Management Controller (SMC) is a chip on the logic board of your MacBook that controls many of the low-level functions of your computer. If you’re experiencing problems with your MacBook, resetting the SMC can often be a helpful troubleshooting step.
Contact Apple Support.
Your best bet is to contact Apple Support. They may be able to help you find a replacement charger or provide other options.
