macbook not charging troubleshoot

If your MacBook is not charging, there could be several reasons for this issue. Here are some troubleshooting steps you can take:

  1. Check the charging cable and adapter: Ensure that the charging cable is properly connected to the MacBook and the adapter is properly plugged into a power outlet. Check for any fraying or damage on the charging cable and adapter, and try using a different charging cable or adapter to see if it resolves the issue.

  2. Check the charging port: Check for any debris or dirt in the charging port of your MacBook and clean it gently using a soft-bristled brush or a toothpick.

  3. Restart your MacBook: Restarting your MacBook can help resolve any software-related issues that may be causing the charging problem.

  4. Reset the SMC (System Management Controller): The SMC is responsible for managing power-related functions on your MacBook. Resetting the SMC can help resolve charging-related issues. To reset the SMC, shut down your MacBook, connect it to the power adapter, hold down the Shift + Control + Option keys, and then press the power button to turn on your MacBook.

  5. Check for updates: Make sure your MacBook is up to date with the latest software updates from Apple.

  6. Check the battery health: Check the battery health of your MacBook by clicking on the Apple menu > System Preferences > Battery. If the battery health is below 80%, it might need to be replaced.

  7. Bring your MacBook to a service center: If none of the above steps resolve the issue, it may be a hardware problem and you should contact Apple support or bring your MacBook to Esmond service center for repair.


In conclusion, if your MacBook is not charging, try these troubleshooting steps one by one until the issue is resolved. If you are unsure about any of the steps or the issue persists, contact Apple support or bring your MacBook to Esmond center for professional help.
