    Mains lead
    I have a Macbook Pro laptop.

    The lead that connects it to power and charges it has stopped working.

    Have you checked the fuse in the plug to make sure it is OK.

    Even simpler - have you tried other outlets or tried plugging different devices into that outlet?

    I Have tried other things in that socket and they work. Going to check the fuse. No light on the cable.
