MacBook - Battery is not Charging (New Battery)
Posted on 2008-10-23
A few weeks ago, my MagSafe adapter burnt out. Someone else was using the computer, didn't notice, and the entire battery got depleted. Now, I replaced the MagSafe adapter. When I plugged it in, the MacBook worked, but the battery would not charge. I tried all the tricks, resetting the pram, getting the update, whatever. I then convinced Apple that the battery was bad, and they gave me a new one. So here I am, with a new MagSafe and new battery, and the thing still will not charge. The MacBook recognizes the battery, and it will run off the battery as well, but it will not charge it. I've tried other MagSafe adapters, tried cleaning the connector, tried taking the battery out and holding down the power button (while off), nothing works. I am hoping someone has a solution other than "buy a new logic board."
