mr AL: This not fix the charcher. Just change the cable.
Sidra Ali: Is there a way to take out the bad plug without heat? I have very limited
supplies so it is something else you would recommend? Is there another way
to heat it up?
Sunny G: Good tutorial. Helped me repair my Macbook power cord for less than a
quarter the price it would cost to buy a new one. But instead of soldering
to the board, i soldered the wires to wire. I thought that for an amateur
like me, I was much more comfortable with that method.
Robert Norris: Great video if your charger is the exact model. But on my late 2011 model
magsafe charger the insides are similar but different. For example that
copper sheeting is joined to the chipboard with solder and it can't be
peeled back like in the video.
Kitteg: Naughty kitty cat chewing on the charger!!
Sunny G: how long after soldering do you wait to test it?
jojo lind: I went through 3 chargers in my first year owning a Mac.. But I just bought
a product called a Python Cord that prevents Mac Chargers from breaking..
Wish I would have found it 6 months ago.. Hope this helps someone!
Martal140: But.... but.....I already have the clips off (the real easy part!) but
wanted to find out how to open the brick neatly and safely, and you just
skip right over that bit. What a gyp!!!!
Pham Xuan Hoang: The charger of Mac is really crap! I've just found out my second core
broken again! 2 chargers in 2 years. Damn it! my HP, Sony...still work and
in shape. they are more than 5 years already!
Alexander Mairena: Awesome thanks.
Anthony Perez: getting the ship knockoffs don't have the chip in them and can mess up your
Kozz Mcfrozz: (cries softly into the wind)
HORSE WILD: Thanks for sharing ! Where can I buy new wire for change?
txCR34TION: Will it work with a Macbook charger non unibody
Jeremy Sarda: Exactly what I was looking for. I just wanted to see what the job would
need before I started taking things apart. Thanks a lot for posting this.
jldemag: how do you find out if the cord or the power supply is good/bad?
wescoolya: What's with the nyan cat at the beginning of the video?
trainlinezoo: Yeah there is lots to be desired for this charger. The magnet was a good
idea but they should have added small tabs on the top and bottom so the
user can handle it without touching the wire. They should have also added a
power port and headphone jack to the right side of the MacBook Air and
deleted one USB jack to make room for the external monitor jack. They could
have included an external USB hub that splits into 6 to run printers,
charge devices etc. The pins in the charger cord are terrible.
kpellet76: If I was to rate it 1-10 it is probably a 5. I have done it so many times
it takes me like 5 mins.
Annmarie Elenteny: mah sister is gonna be pissed off o-o
jonesy94553: Invent something that will stiffen up the weak spot. I was thinking of a
straw filled with silicone or even a small copper tube so it won't bend. Of
course we ALL pull and tug on those things breaking them at the weak spot.
kpellet76: Yes it should.
parris50: Excellent! Thanks.
kpellet76: Good to know thanks
Learn 2 Drum: I have a 2011 core 5 macbook air with L shape magsafe, but been using the
old T shape adapter since I broke my old one. Now the T shape has broken! I
accidentally ordered a L shape magsafe repair cable. I'm sure it will
solder in but do you think it will work as the brick is originally designed
for T shape cable???
kpellet76: Yes you can.
jonesy94553: Easier for me to buy cheap nock offs on Amazon for $16.00
kpellet76: Yes in most cases it is easier to just buy a replacement. I have access to
at lest 100 broken chargers at most times so I fix what I can. The same
people always keep pinching the cords so I give them back the fixed
kpellet76: It should work I have done them same swap before.
Dave Gilbert: thank you - very nicely done. btw you can buy a replacement cord right on
Amazon for less than $15. Search for Macbook power adapter "DC repair cord
'T' or 'L' connector" depending on which kind you have. I am pretty sure
they are interchangeable except for some older computer models...
lancerooke: You can buy the cable complete with the magsafe head for 16 bucks on eBay.
parris50: The cable from the brick to the computer plug has broken. I don't have a
spare cable. Can I cut the old cable and simply resolder it to the card?
kpellet76: In my case I have many that the power brick is burnt up. I remove the cord
from them and toss the brick. You can find a burn brick on Ebay for few
Shazal Kamal: This might be too difficult for a non-skilled person. If the problem is
just in the connector or dc wire than there is a product called ''Quickfix
DC Plugs''. The product works like a replacement kit and no soldering is
required. Technically very easy & takes just 1 mints to fix it. The kit
available for almost all laptop chargers inc Apple MagSafe. There is also a
video on you tube if u search & there will be link of their e-shop, in case
u wanted to buy. I hope this Info will help some guys.
kpellet76: For the cord look near the power brick if the cord looks worn or bulge, or
if anywhere the cord looks damaged. if it looks pretty good it is probably
the brick. If you have a Multimeter you could test both.
Ohh Gag: Where to get new cord?
RJ H: Over 17K youtubers have broken chargers...
lancerooke: Why not just solder to the wires? Why hazard soldering to the brick?
Wouldn't that be less risky and just as effective? Just solder the black to
the black and the white to the white. Keep it simple.
Silver Agatka: Is it possible to fix the chewed up cable though? I don't have an extra
cable :( Could I cut it and somehow fix it?
