MacBook Battery Won\’t Charge…Get \. I have seen this myself on my laptop. I know that my battery is nearing its end, but for some posters it seems to be a new battery that can cause this. This is what I would do.
- Make sure you have all the updates to your system. I believe there was a firmware update for the MacBook Pro for this.
- Do the SMC reset, the PRAM reset, and fix the disk permissions.
- Take out the battery and leave it out for a half hour. Put it back in and start-up the laptop and do a fsck -fy in single user mode.
- Trash any battery/power related preferences in the user preference library.
Let me know if this works for you. It worked for me.
