Macbook (3,1) Battery Not Charging
My Macbook won't charge at all. I have two power cords (original and one that came with a friends Macbook Pro purchased earlier this year) -- both experience the same issue:
When charger is plugged in, the green light turns on (on the charger) but the battery doesn't charge. I can use the computer fine while the computer is connected to the charger, it's just when I remove the charger, the computer shuts off. My battery says it is at 0% and I have done the following things:
- Applied the MacBook SMC Firmware Update 1.4 (when I went to install it said I do not need this update).
- Reset the SMC.
- Shut down the mac in every which way.
- Reset the mac.
- Took out the battery
- Made sure there is nothing interfering or dirty on the magsafe connector

iStat Pro (free) or iStat Menus ($16) to get accurate readings of your battery, temps, fan speeds and much more. Check the number of cycles and your battery health. It's likely time for a new battery, if you haven't replaced it before.
The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.
