Introduzione

Solitamente, il cavo inizia a staccarsi proprio nel punto in cui incontra l'alimentatore di rete . Ho visto troppe persone buttare i loro caricabatterie solo per questo. Ci vogliono tempo e pazienza ma si può aggiustare!

  1. Come riparare il cavo di un alimentatore Apple, Come riparare il cavo di un alimentatore Apple: passo 1, immagine 1 di 1
    • Brutto taglio.

    One option is to cut the protruding plastic. Just be careful not to cut the wires inside as these will be soldered to the cable. If this does not work, then you can proceed to opening the casing. I recommend this if you are hesitant to violate the integrity of your adapter.

    • Guarda la linea che attraversa il caricabatterie. Questi pezzi sono incollati con una super colla che ti impedisce di smontarli.

    • Dovrai tagliare attraverso la plastica seguendo quel piccolo spazio con un taglierino.

    • Questa operazione richiederà un po' di tempo, dovrai tagliare la plastica in tutti e quattro i lati. Quando ne avrai tagliata la maggior parte, te ne accorgerai.

    • Fai attenzione al lato mostrato nell'ultima foto, ci sono un paio di componenti che potrebbero venire tagliati inel corso di questa procedura.

    What worked reallly well for me was, instead of prying with a screw driver, I took some small pliers and put them right where the little tab flips up, where there’s vertical walls about a half inch apart, and I opened the pliers; do this on both sides a few times and you should be able to open the box without too much damage.

    O-Ring Zange??

    hans - Replica

    At first, it seems like a daunting situation, because the adhesive has the enclosure so firmly sealed. However, I went around the entire enclosure with a razor blade at about 1/8th inch depth. Then used a fine chisel bit as a wedge. Inserted it into the crack, rotating it torsionally occasionally, and edged it around the circumference. At some point there is a “CRACK”— but don’t panic, its just the final bits of the adhesive releasing from the enclosure.

    • Con un cacciavite a taglio, inizia a separare le facce di plastica del caricatore. Per farlo, devi applicare un po' di forza.

    • Una volta separati tutti i lati con il cacciavite, non si staccherà ancora. Questo aggeggio è incollato su tutti i bordi di plastica.

    • Inserisci il cacciavite nella parte superiore del caricatore e separa con cura la pellicola dalla custodia in plastica. Fai attenzione a non strappare questa copertura dalla parte interna del caricatore.

    A few note's to make it look like new! And without damaging the outside.

    Tip1. Flip up the bunny ears and use the back of a lighter (or something else plastic that fits) between the gap and twist it open on both sides.

    Tip2. Use a small drill to clean out the rubber cable guide so u can re use it.

    Tip3. Use super glue and clamp the charger long enough for the glue to dry. (don't rush it!)

    • In questo passo ho già rimosso una faccia dell'involucro di plastica.

    • Usa il cacciavite per indebolire l'adesivo su entrambi i lati del connettore.

    • Inserisci il cacciavite nella restante faccia dell'involucro e stacca delicatamente il resto dell'adesivo.

    • Prendi il piccolo pezzo di plastica che attacca i cavi all'alimentatore.

    • Taglia i cavi il più vicino possibile al pezzo di plastica.

    ACHTUNG: Dieses Plastikstück besteht aus 2 Teilen - den weissen und den grauen Teil - dort kannst du beim weissen Teil ein 4er Loch reinbohren - und beim grauen steckst du nun das reparierte Kabel rein (Fummels nur das alte graue Kabel raus) - damit hast du wieder eine perfekte Durchführung - und zum Schluß wenn alles funktioniert wird am Kabel ein 2 Komponentenkleber aufgetragen - und es sieht viel besser aus …... als diese Lösung mit Heisskleber oder so weiter unten.

    Save the plastic piece, cut the cables flush on both side and use a 1/8-in bit to drill the embedded cables out. Then you can reuse it and not have the unsightly hot-glue blob!

    Hi,

    What is the use of the outer wire in the cable ?

    Thanks

    Natasha

    Natasha John Williams - Replica

    Hi, it’s probably a bit late, but maybe it will help others…

    The outer wire is used to carry the electric mass thus protecting the inner wire physically and electromagnetically working as a armour.

    • Unisci i cavi bianchi e saldali assieme.

    • Ricorda che il filo bianco dal caricabatterie DEVE essere saldato al filo bianco dal cavo che proviene dal connettore MacBook.

    • Il tubo nero sul cavo serve per isolarlo dopo, si restringe usando il calore (termorestringente).

    • L'ultima immagine mostra il tubo isolante nero, puoi tagliarlo per adattarlo alla lunghezza che ti serve.

    • È molto importante isolare entrambi i fili, non possono toccarsi o andranno in corto circuito (in altre parole: KABOOM).

    Angenommen ich bin so klug und teste das MacSafe einmal nach dem Zusammenlöten ohne die Kabel zu isolieren . Ich sehe ein Lämpchen. Die Freude ist von kurzer Dauer, denn DDDDDRRRRRRRRRTTTTT beide Kabel berühren sich und es kommt zu funken -.-

    What if I short-circuited because of non-isolating the cables? Is the magsafe out of order right now?

    LLK - Replica

    I found it very hard getting the solder to stick to the wire, maybe the type of wire apple uses? maybe the type of solder I was using? However my solution was to take some copper wire and twist it around the cable, then solder onto that this worked quite well as it gave the soilder something to stick to. hope this is helpful! perhaps somebody has another solution.

    • Procedere alla saldatura del cavo nero dal caricabatterie al filo esterno del connettore del Macbook.

    • Isola quel filo. Non devi coprirlo completamente ma solo a sufficienza in modo che non tocchi il cavo bianco o i circuiti dell'alimentazione.

    • È possibile utilizzare il tubo di gomma nera o il nastro isolante. Se si utilizza il tubo nero, cercare di tenerlo il più lontano possibile durante la saldatura per evitare che si restringa prima di coprire il cavo.

    Which solder or soldering Iron you guys used? I am trying to do everything with my Goot 40W soldering iron and nothing happens:-

    1. I tried to join black wire but my 60/40 solder won't stick to it at all.

    2. i tried to replace the whole cable with a new cable bought from Amazon and I am unable to get the joint on PCB to get melted.

    Please help!!!!

    varun_ag - Replica

    Maybe the wires have insulation like a plastic covering to protected it from rust breakage?

    I thought it would be 60/40 also, that's the usual electrical solder mixture.

    Using a little piece of sandpaper or nail file it scuff it up, would expose it?

    I would also use a 🐊 clip (copper if they exist... Not the silver looking ones because they conduct electricity and they dissipate heat most efficent) to protect the components on the board side and the opposite leading that leads to the magnetic connection side, but if it wasn't making a connection with the soldering iron, then I guess it wasn't going to help much unless you exposed it all enough.

    Hope you or someone comments what happens.

    Also, you have to make sure your Soldering Iron has a tight connection with the screw.

    And did you make sure the tip of the iron was tinned, or making contact with anything by the copper showing on the tip first.

    Lately I been scuffing that also up with a file to expose the tip unfortunately Wiping it sufficient w/ wet sponge

    Statt Isolierband und Kabelbinder kann man auch die alte Hülse (das kleine Plastikstück wird es hier genannt) mit einem 3 mm-Bohrer durchbohren. Die Drähte passen durch, und die Isolierung des Kabels bleibt darin fest. Dann lötet man wie beschrieben, isoliert die Drähte, setzt alles zusammen und hat von außen fast denselben Eindruck als wäre nie etwas gewesen …

    • Copri con del nastro isolante il resto del cavo bianco e nero (esterno) che hai appena saldato.

    • Uniscili con del nastro isolante a formare un unico cavo e posiziona il caricabatterie in una delle facce dell'involucro di plastica.

    • Il nastro isolante bianco rende questa riparazione più bella da vedere.

    • Prendi tre piccole fascette e stringile attorno al cavo per impedire che possa essere estratto dalla custodia in plastica.

    Very useful instruction. I almost bought an expensive replacement. Thanks! I also tied a knot from the wire before soldering. The knot was small enough to fit in the housing where the "round piece" was. The knot will help reduce the chance that the wires being yanked out if you accidentally trip over it.

    hiennguyen - Replica

    This guide was great, thank you for saving me the costs of a new charger. I found it was possible to use the original plastic attachment between the cable and the ac adapter for the repair.

    I first used a 3mm drill bit and removed the bit of cable in the plastic/rubber piece. I then used a 4mm bit to open the hole further and soften the rubber part of the piece. I then threaded the cable through the piece before soldering in step 10. It makes the fix look more like the charger in the beginning and also prevents the wires being pulled through the opening.

    kilian - Replica

    Acutally if you have a set of drills you can carefully drill out the original button and thread the wires through it before soldering. Then there is no need for the cable ties.

    • Metti piccoli punti di supercolla (cianoacrilica) sui bordi della custodia. Posiziona l'altra faccia dell'involucro di plastica e chiudi il caricabatterie.

    • Non dimenticare le linguette di plastica che ti consentono di avvolgere il cavo sul caricabatterie, anche se magari sono la causa principale della rottura del cavo. Di solito scelgo di lasciarle fuori o incollarle alla custodia per evitare che il cavo si rompa di nuovo.

  14. Come riparare il cavo di un alimentatore Apple: passo 14, immagine 1 di 2 Come riparare il cavo di un alimentatore Apple: passo 14, immagine 2 di 2
    • Lega quattro fascette grandi per chiudere la custodia, due su ciascun lato.

    • Alcune persone preferiscono usare solo la supercolla (cianoacrilica) perché il risultato si presenta meglio, ma le fascette lo rendono più sicuro. Se preferisci non usare le fascette, rimuovile qualche ora dopo quando la colla si sarà seccata completamente.

  15. Come riparare il cavo di un alimentatore Apple: passo 15, immagine 1 di 2 Come riparare il cavo di un alimentatore Apple: passo 15, immagine 2 di 2
    • Usa una pistola per la colla a caldo per chiudere lo spazio rimasto.

    • Non usarne troppa, solo quanto basta perché non ci siano più aperture.

    Instead of using the stub wires I soldered the cable ends directly to the PCB. Although it worked I cannot recommend it as the PCB is easily damaged when removing the pins to which the wires are connected. Pulling off a PCB track would step up the difficulty of repair considerably....

    Kind of mangled the case when prying it off so I just wrapped it up in duct tape. Ghetto, but works.

    Also ich halte diesen Reparaturweg für KEINESFALLS fachgerecht. Zunächst lässt sich das Netzteil sehr wohl ganz sauber öffnen und mit Kunststoffkleber (Revell) wieder sauber verkleben. Es schadet natürlich nicht, das Gehäuse zur Sicherheit mit einem Textilband zu verkleben, um 1000% sicher zu sein. Aber doch nicht mit mehreren Kunststoffstrapsen.

    Und bitte nicht mit Heißkleber. Wie viele Tage soll das bitte halten? Bei den Rep.-Kabeln sind doch die Gummitüllen dabei und wenn Ihr nur das alte Kabel abschneidet, könnt Ihr die alte Tülle weiter verwenden.

    Dann lässt sich das Kabel auch sehr gut in die Platine einlöten. Der Zeitaufwand ist dabei unter 30 Minuten. Nein, schwierig ist das keinesfalls. Es gibt bei Youtube auch ein sehr schönes Video dazu. Also keine Angst, ist ganz leicht. Aber ACHTUNG! An Hochspannungsbauteilen haben nur Leute herumzubasteln, die wissen, was sie tun.

    I cut the wire as close to each end of the plastic/rubber plug/grommet that covers the case opening. I used a 1/8-in bit and drilled out the two embedded cables. Enlarge the hole slightly and the wire will slide through. Do this before STEP 9. Once the black cable is “twirled up”, it may get more difficult to slide through the 1/8” opening (but still possible).

    Douglas Ling - Replica

    Drill out the original knob that goes in there. Get the cable through before the soldering step. Then you can just pop it back in.

    pep073 - Replica

    What a crap! You better solder the cable in the PCB and reuse the old cable holder, insteat glue. Or cut the cable holder in 2 and solder it there.

    You have to use special super glue with gum. The normal break to fast

Some tips:

* There is a better way to open the enclosure without damaging the edge: using a pliers to push the two sides apart where the bunny ears lift up (google for videos).

* The cable can actually be threaded through the rubber/plastic grommet if you have the patience to remove the broken cable from it and make the two small holes bigger with a drill bit. This can be frustrating but is the only way to keep the original appearance. Be sure to leave enough cable after the grommet for soldering.

* Thin (2-3mm) heat shrink is a good way to insulate the exposed wire after threading it through the grommet.

* If you trust your soldering skills, consider de-soldering the old cables from the terminals.

* Applying a little super glue along the edge and clamping for a few hours is all that is needed to keep it closed permanently.

don - Replica

Thanks for the tips! If you have pictures of the processes please feel free to modify this guide (especially the opening of the enclosure!) ^__^

* I have seen that in some tutorials and I wanted to to drill a hole through the rubber plastic grommet but didn't have a drill at my office =(

* I did consider de-soldering the old cables but that involved de-soldering other components that are attached to copper plates to get to those terminals. In earlier versions of the AC Adapter this can be done with not so much trouble.

I really appreciate your feedback! Thanks!

Angela Penaherrera -

I didn't try that... We actually ended up just heating it to soften the plastic and that worked, wouldn't advise it though

deavisdude -

Same for me, don: see this as a much easier way to open the case: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yqa9uUKu...

Would be nice if you refer to this solution as alternative, befor starting to cut the case.

Thanks for the manual, I just fixed it!

Is it possible to remove the cord entirely from the circuit board and solder new replacement? I have ordered a replacement and I wonder if its safe to do so? Thank you for your prompt response!

Shawn - Replica

Yes it is possible. Depending on the model of your charger you might need to de-solder some copper plates on the bottom of the circuit board in order to be able to reach the spots for soldering the replacement cable.

Mine does't work when I put both sides of the casing back on. Works fine with only one side. I tested the soldered contacts - they are fine. I did rip off some of the tin foil by accident thoug. Any clues?

Simon Schneider - Replica

1.5 hours and very straight forward. I would reiterate the importance of making sure ADAPTER MUST BE UNPLUGGED!! before attempting to remove casing or anything further. I feel like electrical hazards were overlooked in the tutorial.

Joshua - Replica

Joshua, sorry to say that, but do you really think anybody in his right mind would attempt to remove the adapter casing before unplugging the adapter? Is such a thing even possible? You gotta give people some credit. I doubt such morons even exist. If they do, maybe it's best they don't reproduce. Darwin Awards, you know?

Anyway.

I'm attempting to do the repair as well. Just to say, I had two adapters I wanted to repair, one was a 85W: almost impossible to open. It took ages. I cut it with the knife, all around, then took some pliers to it to force it open, I ended up cracking the case. All that before realizing my soldering iron was toast. I was planning on borrowing one so I didn't give up. I took the other adapter, a 45W, this time, no knife, I went directly with the pliers, it opened directly, no damage. I think there are a lot of different versions of the adapters. Depending on the one you get, you might be lucky.

Both of mine, I need to unsolder to open any further. I'll come back with more news.

nessdufrat -

Thanks Angela - a very useful guide. I used a fine toothed saw to open up the power supply and a drill to scour out the plastic stopper. White duck tape to keep it closed after I glued it back again. Sure beats buying a new one! Time spent - 45 minutes.

cshop - Replica

Hello, I recently had the same problem and successfully fixed it using this guide so thanks. However, I'm curios, if the adapter does for some reason short circuit, what's the worst that could happen? Will the damage be in my macbook only or is there a risk that I might damage the whole wirings in the office?

DevMan - Replica

Inspired by this guide. I fixed mine without opening the adapter. I hacksawed the upper part (protruding from the adapter) of the plastic piece connecting the cable to the adapter. Then reconnected the wires as described here (without opening case).

marcellus124 - Replica

Used the pliers method to open. I unsoldered the remaining cable at the supply and resoldered the cable directly to the power supply board. To protect the cable from future damage, I added a strain relief. I drilled a 2 holes in the side of the case, looped a zip tie through, then strapped the cable to the side of the case. Oriented cable so that it lies along the side of the supply rather than sticking straight out. It is possible to use the plug prongs as a guide to wrap the cable around the case. I did not bother putting the bunny ears back on and closed up the supply with tape.

tkarches - Replica

The design of the Apple adapters is such that they will all eventually break with how the cable is attached. If you leave some slack in the cable before wrapping the cable around the ears, it will last much longer.

tkarches - Replica

I think mine must have shorted out before dissassembly. I replaced the charge cable with a new one but the charger must have been damaged when it shorted. Is there like a safety component in the charger that stops charging in the event of a short, and maybe can be replaced??? Can anyone advise??

Eduardo - Replica

Mine process was just fine, but I have one problem. That thing gets unbearably hot now :( Is it because of extra resistance ?

Dominykas Sribikė - Replica

Please check that the connecting wires were insulated correctly and that they are not touching anything internally. That might be a hazard. If it heats up so much I would not use it.

Angela Penaherrera -

Opening the case was a B!tcH. One thing I wish I knew ahead of time was more about the basics of soldering. I chewed through a lot of wire just to practice to get the connection right before I ran out of slack and solder too close to the adapter. Buying a cheapo soldering iron (60-watt) was a waste of time. Buy (or rent) an 100-watt so that you can heat the connection up BELOW the wire. Then you can bring in solder from above so that it melts into the wire!! Just need an hot enough gun.

Sean Sumwalt - Replica

I had a frayed cord, with the conducting metal wire completely detached from the rest of the conducting wire (below the insulating material). If that's the case for you, you can peal off the insulating layer from an old iPhone charger, remove the conducting wire and use it to join the two dead ends on the cord of your macbook charger. Apply some electrical tape on top of it and you now have a working charger!

al 4515 - Replica

there is an easier way to open the case. Get a number 10 spanner and use it to prise off the case below the cable tidy clips. Wedge the outer 'fork' into the near corner of the space below the cable tidy clips and push the spanner away from you. Pop! Off it comes. Takes 2 seconds with very little physical effort. It is similar to the pliers approach but easier to do.

Stephen Ashworth - Replica

I have come across many chargers now. Some open the way you said, some are a pain to open. I believe it varies with the year they were manufactured because some have way more glue than others and have a different setup of the circuit board. I now use a hot air gun to soften the internal adhesive, will update the guide later.

Thanks for your comment!

Angela Penaherrera -

Fire hazard man. I’d just replace it.

Guy Hide - Replica

It is, I have repaired chargers by resoldering the wires onto the circuit board. Just make sure that both wires are well isolated from each other.

Angela Penaherrera -

I used epoxy to glue the enclosure back together, and molded Sugru around the cable to close up the gap and provide a flexible but strong sheath for the cable. Looks like it will turn out nicely!

edward - Replica

I don’t own any soldering equipment but I spliced the wires with electrical tape and it works just fine.

JC Albers - Replica

That is far easier to just solder the two leads on the outside without opening the plastic box. Usually there is enough length sticking out of the box for that. Just strip both central wires on two ends (3 mm on each end is enough) and solder them together. Don’t forget to put the isolating shrink-wrap on the wire end before. Better yet, put two isolating shrink-tubes - a smaller one to isolate the central wire and a larger one to cover and hold together the whole thing. First, solder the central wire. Then pull the smaller tube over the connection and heat it to isolate (or use electrical tape). After that solder the mesh. and finally pull the larger tube over the connection and heat-shrink it (or use electrical tape). Done.That is not ideal, but it will work and hold if you don’t pull on it too hard. Can be done in 5 mins, no need to open the box.

I read Don’s tip, and tried the same, used two open ended spanners to start the opening of the case, popped open quite easily. Not sure how to post a photo tho.

My cable broke at the other end, close to the MagSafe connector.

Is there a way to get a new cable including the connector?

I used pliers also as described above. Its a good way to get things started. When using th knife, best use a hobby type knife and only leave the blade out max 5 mm. Then the risk of damage is smaller. Indeed take your time and work slowly from one loose point around.

watch your hands,,,

EN. I used a thermal pistol. The glue get out easy with this and don't make the cover ugly.

PT. Eu usei uma pistola térmica. A cola saiu fácil e não deixou a capa feia
