And MacBooks are no different.

Nonetheless, most of these common errors can be fixed without professional help.

In this article, we’ll tell you some common problems for MacBook and how to troubleshoot and fix them.

MacBook Dies Suddenly

This is one of the most common issues faced by most Mac owners. And, notably, it is one of the easiest to troubleshoot too.

If your Mac keeps on dying suddenly, start your diagnosis with the charging cable. You must visually examine the cord for any breakages or cracks. Also, look for any signs of rust or burns in the charging point (jack).

The idea is to know if your system is charging correctly.

If it is charging correctly but still dies suddenly, then something else might be wrong with your system.

The following solution to try is- restarting your MacBook. It should help reset the SMC.

Storage Problems

Another common problem that most Mac owners face is running out of storage.

Although Mac users have plenty of cloud storage, local storage is still needed to store several files.

And this could be the reason why your system keeps running out of storage.

Perhaps, you can start moving some of your files to iCloud. For photos, you can choose to upload them to iPhoto. And, as far as other files are concerned, you can move them to an external device.

You can also choose a macOS recommended cleaner app to do it more efficiently.

Poor Camera Image Quality

Reasonably familiar with MacBook Air users, when Facetiming, image quality often drops.

Nonetheless, this issue is once again pretty easy to troubleshoot and fix.

Usually, the problem isn’t related to the hardware of your Mac’s camera.

Check for dust deposits on the camera or smudge prints. If you find any, you can simply clean the camera using a lint-free cloth.

In case the problem is not smudging or dust, you may need to look into the camera. Check if the top bezel has any cracks or any moisture deposits from the inside.

You may need to remove the bezel cover and clean it from the inside.

External Devices Fail To Connect

If your external devices fail to connect with your Mac, try checking if the device is working correctly with other computers first. It should help you examine if the device is broken or not.

Once you are sure that your external device is not broken, it’s time to check the connecting cable, connectors, and the device’s compatibility with your Mac.

If all of these problems don’t seem to be there, the next thing you can do is look for the device drivers installed on your system.

One of these troubleshooting tricks should help you identify the problem and fix it in one go.

In case none of these work for you, the last thing you can try is resetting your PRAM/NVRAM and SMC. It should help reset any glitch in the device interface.

The Takeaway

Most of the common everyday Mac problems can be fixed at home. However, if you find your system to be troubling you after troubleshooting, it’s better to visit an Apple Store.

The professionals should be better able to diagnose and fix uncommon problems for you.
