Hi guys,

I'm a little frustrated. My MacBook Pro's power adapter has been acting funny lately. Then I realized it's because my power adapter only works if you hold it a certain way. So I moved the clip that is near the magnet, and I saw the cord was a little deformed.

Anyway, I'm at a loss for what to do--do I call AppleCare, just go out and buy a new power adapter... totally at a loss.

Thanks,
John

Electricity is something you don't wanna mess around with. If its not working 100%, there could be a loose connection inside the connector, or within the wire coming from it. If you're still under warranty, call Apple and get it replaced asap.

If you get any hassle from Apple when claiming a replacement, make the point that it is a 'Safety-related issue' - this usually makes the rep a lot more willing to swap it out.
