Reset apple id account


Unfortunately, you will need to get to a laptop or tower PC or Mac, in order to reset your password, migrate to apple.com try to login, there should be a forgot password link just below the login entry points. The Mobile version of Apples website malfunctions when attempting to reset a password, this is why you need to go through a laptop or tower to have a successful password reset.

I have got apple macbook pro unibody , my charger light is blinking and not charging battery while my laptop is on but when i shut down my laptop its connecting and disconnecting for 10 seconds interval


Try charging your laptop with a spare charger. If your laptop is still under warranty, make an appointment with a genius bar representative at a local Apple store to diagnose your laptop's issue and replace the charger.

Warning!
Do not use the USB ports to charge any external devices from your laptop! Instead use the chargers they were packaged with.

If the spare charger doesn't work after an hour of charging you will have to reset the System Management Controller with the Mac turned off:
Press Shift-Control-Option-Power key combination.
Release and press the power button.

If resetting the SMC doesn't work try resetting the PRAM. Keep in mind that you have to enter the key combination before the grey screen appears!

Reboot your laptop.
Immediately hold down Command-Option-P-R combination.
A reboot sound should confirm the reset.

My G3 phone is flashing the apple symbol while powering up but isn't powering up.


Thank for contacting Fixya, I will be glad to assist you.

What you can do, in order to resolve this issue, is start by resetting your iPhone 3G.
(Note: this does not remove any settings, data or media you have installed in your device)
• To perform a hard reset, press and hold your Sleep and Home Menu buttons for approximately 10 seconds.
• Once your screen goes black, release both keys. (If you see a white Apple logo before you release the keys you have held the keys to long and will need to start the reset process once again)
• The next screens you should see after the black screen, is the Apple logo screen followed by the main screen.

• This hard reset process should help bring your iPhone 3G back to normal functionality.

It would also be advisable to connect your iPhone 3G via its docking cable and provided wall socket adapter into a working wall socket in order to try and charge it.

If your iPhone 3G still does not charge, try connecting it with the docking cable to your computer or laptop to observe if it will take a charge then.

Should this process also not affect the way the iPhone charges, then you should look into using or purchasing another iPhone docking cable, as the cable itself may not be functional and needs to be replaced.

Docking cables for iPhones are fairly inexpensive (Under $20) and can be found in most electronics/computer stores that carry Apple products and accessories.
(Link: Apple Dock Connector)

Finally, if a replacement docking cable does not help the iPhone 3G charge, this may be a hardware issue and you would be advised to take the iPhone 3G in to your local Apple retail store or Apple Authorized Service Provider in your area.

My apple 13" laptop not


I would try a SMC reset first, if that doesn't work for you, a PRAM reset might as well.

To perform a SMC reset, remove the battery from the unit, and remove th e mag safe adapter. now when there is no power going to the unit, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. replace battery, and power and try to start the unit.

To perform a PRAM reset, turn the unit on, as soon as it turns on (before the apple logo pops up) press and hold "CMD" + "Opt"+ "P" + "R". Continue to hold until you hear the unit "chime" 3 to 4 times. then let go and see if it boots up.

Now if these help, then great, your in business, but if you leave it for a while on, and all you see is a folder with a "?", then you most likely have a dead Hard Drive.
