Hello.

shows the burned power adapter piece. :(
Will I be able to get it from a local Apple store on Tuesday since
tomorrow is an American holiday? If not, then where can I get one
quickly like from a local Orange County/Los Angeles area retail store?
The old MacBook Pro is 13.3" 9,2 / MD102ll/A model with Intel Core I7
CPU (2.9 ghz with 4 MB L3 cache (Turbo Boost up to 3.6 Ghz)) from 2012.

Thank you for reading and hopefully answering soon. :)

they don't sell them separately, but they might replace it, especially
if you have something under warranty. otherwise, you can buy the cable
for $19, which you probably already have.

I'm OK to rebuy its whole AC power cable package. It's too old to be
under AppleCare since it was bought in 2012. :(

another mac would suffice, maybe even a phone.

however, if the burn was caused by a defective power adapter, it
*should* be replaced, and before it causes additional problems.

Yeah, I think it is better to buy the whole thing new since those parts might be falling apart
for being old from 2012. I hope the local Apple store will have them when visiting in person!

That doesn't mean they definitely won't replace it for free. You've been
around this news group and Apple long enough to know that Apple often
replaces and repairs things for free even outside of the warranty
period. The only way you'll know is to bring it to them and see what
they say.

So, we went in the local Apple store. They didn't have any in stock so
we had to pay for it online in the store to ship to home (free shipping
though). :(

No need for the frowny face. You didn't expect to get it for free. It
was worth a shot. Maybe next time.
