2010 Macbook Pro Wont Download Apps

I have an old, not for me actually, MacBook Pro which I purchased at the end of 2010. I was expecting Apple won’t drop the support of Mojave for MacBook Pro 2010 model, at least not for this time. But I was wrong. The latest Majove doesn’t support it too. There is no need to worry. Even the oldest Windows 95 can be installed on Mac computer. MacBook Pro Stuck On Loading Screen Shut Down Your Mac. When you see that your MacBook Pro is stuck on loading screen, you cannot shut it down from the Apple menu. All you can do is press the power button for a few seconds until the computer is off. Then, disconnect all peripheral devices from your Mac and wait for 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Many MacBook Pro users have had a camera issue occurring on their notebook. The built-in camera on their MacBook Pro is not working properly. The camera is not functioning (even though the green indicator light may be on) when they’re using programs such as FaceTime or Skype. And the program tells them there’s no connected camera.

This is a frustrating issue. You can’t use apps requiring your camera because of this issue. But don’t worry. It can be fixed…

Fixes to try

These are the methods that have helped many MacBook Pro users fix their camera. You don’t have to try them all; just work your way down the list until you find the one that works for you.

Method 1: Restart your MacBook Pro

There may be temporary corruption issues on your MacBook Pro so you can’t use the built-in camera. These issues can be fixed by a restart of your notebook. Try restarting your MacBook Pro and see if this fixes your camera. If it does, you’ve solved your problem. But if not, there are still some fixes for you to try…

Method 2: End all the processes that are using the camera

There may be some processes that are using your MacBook Pro camera and won’t allow you to use it on other programs. You should close all the processes that are using the camera to see if this fixes the issue for you. To do so:


1) Click Launchpad.

2) Click Other.

4) Type “sudo killall vdcassistant” and press Enter on your keyboard.

5) Type your password (the password you use to log in to your MacBook Pro) and press Enter.

6) Wait until the system closes all the processes. Then check to see if you are able to use your camera.

Hopefully it does. But if not, there are three more fixes for you to try.


Method 3: Reset the SMC on your MacBook Pro

The SMC (System Management Controller) is handling some hardware functions, including those related to your camera, on Intel-based Mac computers. You will fix your camera by resetting the SMC if it is this component that causes your trouble. To reset the SMC:

1) Shut down your MacBook Pro.

2) Press the leftShift, Control, Option keys on your keyboard and the power button and then hold them for 10 seconds. After that release those keys.

You’ve reset the SMC on your MacBook Pro. Turn on your MacBook Pro and check to see if this resolves your problem. If it does, great! But if it doesn’t, you may need to…
