    This is what my macbook says. Do I need a new charger or a new battery? I already had to get the mother board replaced and that was a pretty penny to spend. I really hope I dont need to spend more

    This is what my MacBook reads. Do you think I would have to get a new charger or battery? I have already had to replace the mother board so I am praying I won't have to spend a lot more money

    Those indications are normal MelleMels, with the exception that it is not charging and your battery is almost completely drained. The cause could be a defective charger, an inoperative power receptacle, or something else you can fix.

    It's new battery time. You can get a new third party battery fairly cheap on eBay. Every MacBook from 2006 through Mid 2009 except the Late 2008 Aluminum Unibody and the Late 2009 and 2010 White Unibodies use the same A1185 battery.

    Based on my experience, my occasional inability to charge my MBP seems to be linked to something running within a browser.  I would say that it might be the Flash plugin, but I'm not 100% sure.  Basically I go from 'not charging' to 'charging' after I close the browser apps (I typically use both Chrome and Safari).  No reboot required.  YMMV.

    Hi -

    Thanks for your assistance in advance.

    My Macbook stopped charging, I believe it was due to water damage. My macbook would not start, I thought my macbook battery is not good anymore, I purchased new battery today.  The new battery is 53% charged, I was able to turn on macbook.  If I keep my macbook connected the battery remains 53%, % goes down when disconnected but does not go up when connected to power.  I tried SMC reset.  I don't see green light. can you help...here is battery info:

    So, your advice would be to pray for my laptop?

     

    Do me a favour and save it for church. This is a technical forum, not a place to discuss paranormal activity.

    Sajan I had the same problem like you... I recently changed the battery or replace it and everything gets normal.. try to reset your smc first if it not works than again consult the engineer for this work and ask his/her to chnage the battery..
