Try a different outlet. If that fails, perhaps the charger brick or cable is faulty.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

I was just reading some review and a lot of people experienced this and say the charger is very crappy and constantly breaks. What a way to start my birthday =/ I've only had the MacBook Pro for 4 days and already something broke. =[

Well you aren't going to read much from people who never have a problem with it. Some people get lemons… it's true with anything. Definitely hit Apple up for a replacement.

If you feel more secure carrying it that way.
Also, if there is a problem with the unit, and not the charger, being only 4days old, they will just swap it over for a new boxed machine, so it could be a good idea just to take everything in including the receipt.

If you are sure that it was plugged in properly, yep, I'd still take it in, otherwise, you have a 12 month warranty.
If you don't, just give them a call to let them know so they can give someone else the appointment

You are right i should take it in still because it maybe one of those on and off things that maybe even damage my device more a head so i wont take the chance. Thanks a lot guys for the help.
