Battery and charger replaced but still not charging correctly.
A couple of weeks ago my MacBook Air decided not to charge, I had a look at the battery and realised that it needed to be replaced because it was slightly swollen
I installed a new battery and plugged in the charger but there were no signs of life, no charger light and the Mac would not turn on. I decided to replace the charger.
I plugged in the new charger and there was an orange charging light on the MagSafe connector however, when I checked a couple of hours later there was no orange charging light but the Mac had power, I turned it on. The charging indicator on the desktop showed that the battery was being charged, I continued charging upto 100%.
Thinking that all was ok I let the battery drain until the Mac turned itself off. Now the charger is plugged in to the Mac, there is no charging light on the MagSafe connector but the Mac will turn on.
The desktop indicator shows that the battery is being charged but has only reached only 1% and that is where it stays.
If I disconnect the charger the Mac turns off
I have inspected both the MagSafe connectors, they're clean.
I have tried a couple of different power outlets at my home, no difference.
I can use the Mac, the Magic Mouse is ok, the keyboard is ok, I can connect to WIFI.
- What else could be causing this problem?
- How can I correct this?
I downloaded the coconutbattery app onto my Mac, here's the snapshot (hopefully).
