MacBook - sudden power supply issues
« on: May 24, 2018, 12:53:31 pm »
This has just occurred. 22nd May 2018.

Running a MacBook Pro with a non-Apple power supply which has been working happily for two years. All of a sudden it no longer works and will not charge or connect.

After a visit to an Apple repairer it seems that the requirement to use only Apple products has somehow been invoked. Replacing the PSU with the official Apple Magsafe 2 resulted in a restored system.

The non-Apple PSU works and will charge every so often, say 1 in 100 connection. But not good enough for our requirements.
