Computer does not charge
I bought ifixit’s usb-c board and it charged great for about a day….then stopped again. I’m not sure which parts may be burning out the usb-c board… wanted to get advice so that I can purchase all necessary parts to prevent any further issues.
Thank you in advance
@danj Hey Dan,
At first it seemed like the charger wasn't working... the green light on the charger wouldn't turn on and the charging symbol on the computer wouldn't turn on.
My computer would charge at 6pm but then not charge at all for a few hours. Over the next few weeks it got worse by taking days for charging light and symbols to turn on.
Once it completely stopped charging I tested a few chargers and realized it was a hardware issue and bought the usb-c board... which allowed me only 1 charge. I feel like if I had kept the charger plugged in and let it continuously charge then I would’ve been fine.
I only used the charger that came with the computer (which was bought new from Apple on Amazon). The charger did regularly get hot even though it was new. I always unplugged after a full charge to prevent further issues.
I believe the computer also got warm/hot quickly. Everything else about the computer was normal as far as I could tell… but also it’s been months since I used it.
Let me know if you need better pictures... this is the best my iPhone7 could do. I’m not a new Mac customer… I have a MacBook air 11“ from 2013 that works great other than not holding charge because of the old battery.
Beating myself up now because if I had bought the 13” I wouldn’t be in this situation.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
