    This is about a month old. I plug it into the wall, it turns green, then orange and says it is not charging..

    Any ideas? :mad::mad::mad:

    But what's the battery level? They won't charge unless under 95% capacity.

    ohhh, that's not good.

    Try a SMC rest and see what happens.

    Well, no. They do hiccup on rare instances and something may have corrupted the power management. I did it to mine once trying to plug the external monitor cable into the FW port in the dark.:rolleyes: A small arc of electricity and no more charging. SMC reset did the trick!

    Glad to be of some assistance.:)
