So here's what happened: A staple got pulled into my magsafe port and I didn't realize this, because it was rather dark in my room and I didn't examine the port before attempting to plug my cable into it. I tried to plug the charger cable in and it felt kind of strange, but I thought I'd just hit it at some weird angle, no big deal, so I tried it again and sparks shot out of the port and my laptop (which was on) went dark. I immediately stopped trying to plug the thing in and unplugged everything, because I wasn't sure if it was the wall outlet or the charger itself or the laptop that was the culprit. I take my laptop out into the other room and see, now that there's light, that there's a piece of staple in there. I try turning on my laptop to no avail. I then get a piece of plastic to pry the staple out and I break it loose. Then I try my laptop again and it turns on. Everything except for the date and time works fine, I'm on my laptop right now. I haven't tried to plug it in again because I'm not sure if it's safe. The port appears to be fine as does the charger cable. So, was this just a freak thing that likely didn't create any additional risk? Is it safe to continue to use and charge my laptop? And if not, what would Apple do for me? Additional info: The laptop is only a few months old and it was purchased from the Apple store here in Montreal. So it is under warranty and I have the additional AppleCare for it as well.
