    If my charger cord doesn't light up at all when I plug it in and attach it to my MacBook Pro, does that mean its broken? I'm not a Mac person but got one for my daughter for Christmas. Everything was working fine until she had it with her today without the cord and ran it totally down till it was out of juice. When she got home and plugged it in, the cord didn't do it's usual light up thing.

    I noticed some chew marks in the plastic on the cord - looks like the cat was playing with it. Is it gone?

    I did but couldn't find anything that addresses if the light isn't on. Could it be charging anyway?

    wait jsut read your whole post. i would wait and see if its charging. if its damaged and not charging then i would say one of ur animals got ahold of it or something else did. no light usually means no charge. and if u have an open wire that could be health hazard.

    Macbook was completely out of juice... so far, its not showing any signs of coming to life. I've had the cord plugged in without any light showing for at loeast 30 minutes now.

    I do see one spot in the chew mark area of the cord that shows a tiny, TINY spot of metal wire, so it looks like George Clooney fucked up this cord Can't punish an animal for something unless you catch them doing it obv. So pissed.

    Yeah.. Looking online and I can't find a cord that looks like this one - they all have the plug part in the spot that we have another cord... Do we have an extended version of the default cord? Apologies for Mac ignorance. The end that connects to the Mac is magnetized. There is a square part where the battery is located, I assume, and then another cord that extends to the wall. The ones online don't have the cord coming out at that point - just the prongs that connect to the outlet.

    I don't have Apple Care. Should I go in anyway and ask for a swap?

    i think it would be worth a try worst case senerio they get you a new one for maby 8 or nine hundred dollars.

    the apple store here replaced my wifes phone after she smashed it on the pavement no questions asked and same with the power coard for the MBP.

    Apple care doesn't cover shit, you are covered under a 1 year warranty from the date you purchase the laptop. The warranty typically covers the cost of repairs and you foot the bill for materials. Apple care is a scam, don't bother.

    I am actually moderately concerned your battery went to shit. What I would do is go in to an apple store and tell them your laptop went dead and then wouldn't charge, ask for a new battery. If you're nice and straight forward you can sometimes get a free charger out of the deal, just bring yours along and let the apple genius know you're 50/50 as to whether the battery is dead or the charger is fucked, I bet you get both a new battery and new charger out of it.

    Applecare is a complete scam, the ONLY thing it covers is manufacturer defects- that is IT. Anything else is typically being paid for under the umbrella of the one year warranty, which is actually very decent. They will NEVER replace a fucking 800 dollar laptop you are out of your damn mind.

    Your wifes phone was probably replaced because Apple has come under fire for the shitty glass they were using on iphones and ipads. In fact, purchasing a new iphone I believe gets you one replacement of the glass free of charge regardless of how it got fucked up. Not sure if this is still being honored, but for a long time that was the case and most likely how your wife got the new phone. The power cord being replaced is totally at the discretion of the Genius rep handling the claim, it has nothing to do with Apple really but it's more of a customer service thing. I see right away you are a biggish spender, how many apple products do you own total? My point being a new customer or newish customer with proven high dollar spending habits is going to be treated much better than, say, the guy who needs a new cord for his 5 year old macbook who owns nothing else from apple but the laptop.

    Sure of that are you? Impressive, what with the diagnosing hardware failures remotely and what have you.

    Fwiw, when I sold my macbook pro my charger cable was completely frayed and the magnetic tip barely hung on and it still charged like a champ. That fucking charger sat in puddles of water, spit from chewing tobacco, it had things dropped on it fuck I can't even remember half the shit I did to it and I never once had a problem.

    Sounds to me like macbook pro's are just a bit too much for you sonatine. Maybe you should stick with toshiba's and shit, they seem more your style. All that glorious shiny plastic and shit is definitely your style.

    ROFL I miss that thing, evil to the core though it was. That brushed aluminum was like soft cool butter beneath my finger tips. I loved that laptop...even when it started turning on printers and trying to access every cell phone within ear shot I still loved it...RIP

    Plugged it into a friend's charger and it fired right up, so its definitely the charger cord, and I'm almost positive it's from the cat chewing on the cord. Damn cat.

    vwwls just take it in they sell the charger components not the whole thing, also i belive there is a high chance that they will just replace it for free. apple computers cost a lot and you simply get better service when you go to there shops. also the part man not even cost that much.

    glad it just the charger though.
