Macbook not charging repair is a repair that involves the charging circuit or charging pins on Macbooks. There are a couple of possible faults causing this issue, all depending on what happened to the Macbook. Most of the time we see it as a result of either a faulty/knock-off charger or water damage on the Macbook.

Which Repair Do I Need?
With Macbook Air before the 2018 model, the chargers used to have a light showing if it is charging or not. Unfortunately, new Macbooks don’t have this light and is hard to see if Macbook is charging or not.
Symptoms requiring Macbook not charging repair could be:
- Macbook Pro is not turning on
- Macbook charger is not working
- Macbook Charger is not charging
- Macbook Air is not charging
- Macbook Air is not turning on
- Black Screen on Macbook air
- Macbook Pro is not chiming
What causes Macbook charging issues?
Damaged Charging port on 2013 – 2017 models
In most cases, Macbook not charging repair is required when there is a spillage caused by liquid damage.
In some cases, this damage stops at the DC-IN board with MacBook Air. DC-IN board is a small logic board that receives an input voltage from the adapter and transfers it into the logic board. There is a flex cable on this board which often oxidizes from water damage.
Damaged or corroded USBC Charging ports on 2017 – 2021 models
In other cases, it is the USB-C connectors that may be oxidised or corroded from liquid and may be as simple as replacing or repairing charging flex connectors.
Electronic failure caused by a corroded components or traces
Furthermore, there could be an issue with the logic board itself, especially with the charging IC or circuit. New Macbooks with a USB-C connector, if one of the ports are not functioning properly, all other ports would not accept power.

Repaired, not Replaced!
We are committed to reducing e-waste in Australia. How we do it is by educating our customers on the reparability and longevity of their devices, as well as providing affordable Macbook Repairs here in Adelaide.
Although our best intentions and hard work, this is not an easy task. Customers must accept that cost of high-quality electronic repairs, is between a third and half of the price of a new device. However, with the current trend of planned obsolescence in electronic design, we see more and more Macbooks having shorter lifespans. To tackle that, while we do our repairs we target common planned obsolescence engineering design mistakes to ensure we extend the life expectancy of the Macbooks we repair. Check some of our Macbook Repair Cases to get an idea of the process.
That said, if we buy a new one or write it off via insurance, it does not guarantee that the new one will not meet the same fate as the older one pretty soon.
As matter of fact, quite often we see accidents reoccurring within less than 2-year gaps. If we can save 2000$ or even 1000$ today by repairing our faulty Macbook is brilliant. That’s an extra half Macbook cost ready to be spent on another one when the time comes or our need for performance increases.
When that time comes is up to us to buy a new one or keep pushing the one we have, but delaying it by a year or three is always a good starting point and saves another abandoned Macbook from polluting our one and only Planet.
