Help needed - MacBook Pro laptop

Hi,

My MacBook Pro turns off almost everytime it is not on charge even though it has charge. The only time it doesn't turn off is when the charger is plugged in.

Can someone please offer a solution to this as its becoming very troublesome.

You say that this happens even though it has charge. How do you know, have you checked the battery voltage?

This sounds like a battery fault. The cheapest repair is probably a new battery
