Edit: After half day, my wife’s Mac started having the same problem. I have then applied the solution that I found in the Apple
Apple Roll Out Replacement Program For Frayed “T” Mag Adapters –
Apple’s T-MagSafe adapter has been known for fraying in the past but today Apple offered some steps to getting your cable replaced, and your money refunded.
The refunds for people who purchased a new adapter within
- one year of purchasing their laptop $79.00
- second year $50.00
- third year $35.00.
The settlement will provide a cash payment if you are the original owner (by purchase or gift) of certain Apple MacBook or MacBook Pro computer models (“Subject Computer”) or separately purchased an Apple 60W or 85W MagSafe MPM-1 (“T”) Power Adapter (“Adapter”), your Adapter showed signs of Strain Relief Damage, and you purchased a Replacement Adapter within the first three years following the initial purchase of the Subject Computer or Adapter. If the court approves the settlement, you may be entitled to a cash payment in the following amounts depending on whether you purchased your Replacement Adapter during the first, second or third year following the initial retail purchase of the Subject Computer or Adapter: (a) first year, the actual amount you paid (excluding taxes and shipping/handling fees) up to a maximum of $79; (b) second year $50; (c) third year $35. There is a limit of three refunds per Subject Computer. You may also be able to obtain a Replacement Adapter at no charge from Apple if your Adapter shows signs of Strain Relief Damage now or in the future.
