Why is my trackpad click function not working after a few minutes?
So I started getting this recently and believe it could be software issue, because when I was reinstalling Catalina, the click was working all through the installation, but after I enter desktop the click sound of the trackpad goes away few mins later with functionality still intact. I am hearing a lot about the battery getting swollen and preventing the trackpad from getting clicked down, why would it even allow clicking throughout installation process?
I have opened the Mac and reconnected the cables that needed to be, but this problem continues. I have reset everything under System Settings for Trackpad, but the issue continues..
I have rebooted in Safe mode by holding Shift key during boot and the click works for as long as I want. But when I reboot to regular mode, it stops working, and then I try safe mode back, it won’t work there either. So what has happened?
i got the click briefly working for a day, but after I put it to charge last night until 90% and tried using, the click is again gone. Also the laptop is always in sleep mode, maybe it’s charging issues on a port or the battery is really getting swollen, I have no idea what to make of this.
I have realised, the click function is coming and going on it’s own wish. However, when I do an NVRAM or SMC reset, the click works for sometime and then goes away again, on it’s wish. Help!
After continuous use, I have finally narrowed down to the charging port (USB-C) near the display. Whenever I use that port to charge, within a few mins the click function goes away, then I remove the cable, wait for few mins, the click function comes back. Then, I continue with the second port for charging, the click function never goes away. Strange, is this a logic board problem? Anyone?
