I have an Macbook Air and I am having the same problem, getting the message USB Accessories Disabled, but I have nothing connected, it started yesterday and the last thing I connected was my iPhone 2 days ago Do it from the hard drive regardless the message wait a few seconds then plug it again. Unplug the accessory using too much power to re-enable USB devices.

If your Mac keeps pops up with the "USB Accessories Disabled" error after the above solutions, maybe the problem is deeper inside the device and needs to be handled by the professionals. Vah says:.

I have no idea what accessories it is referring to, all i have plugged in is keyboard and two ext hard drives which have been fine for the previous 2 years. Posted: January Nope - didnt work. No ports makes it useless to what i need this mac for. I only use it for business matters so nothing major and it still has stuff going wrong…so strange. My old mac lasted me for like 8 years. Replaced it and this is my second in 4 years so not happy to see them breaking down so easily.
Hope they can fig out why this is happening. Will check back in hopes of another solution other other than a board replacement. Help Translate iFixit. Back Answers Index. Ben Santos Rep: 4 3 1.

David vidnelson Rep: 13 1. Hey everyone, I tried resetting SMC as well both ways and still nothing. Anybody else have this similar problem?? As flawless as a Mac can be, it is not completely immune to issues and sometimes the USB ports on the Mac can stop working inexplicably. You know you didn't do anything to cause the problem, but all of a sudden all your USB ports not working on Mac.
This issue can be frustrating. But before you think that the problem is the Mac, consider that sometimes USB devices can fail. Like we mentioned above, it is likely that the Mac is not the problem at all but the USB itself is failing to connect to the Mac. To check if this is a connection issue and that the USB you are using is damaged or not, try connecting a different USB device to the Mac to see if it's recognized.
You may also want to check the USB ports on the Mac to make sure there isn't any debris or dust lodged in it. If there are, use a soft cloth to clean out the dust or a toothpick to remove any debris. This problem can also be caused by a software issue. In this case, you may want to restart the Mac to eliminate any software issues that could be causing problems.
Follow these simple steps to restart the Mac;. Just to make sure that it is not a hardware problem, you may want to check that the USB port on the Mac is working fine. Dust and debris can be easily removed like we mentioned in the first solution above, and you can also try using different USB devices to see if they are the problem. The process is slightly different for different Mac models. An update of the software on your Mac is also another way you can fix problems with USB connectivity. Follow these simple steps to update your Mac;.
Most software problems on Mac often result in data loss. If you have suffered data loss for one reason or another, you may need a reliable data recovery program.
