not able to charge any more.

My Mac Pro (13 inch, early 2011) is not able to get charged any more.
Half year ago, milk was split into my Mac, but it has been working since then except the first night.
during the trip to USA 3 weeks ago, the battery did not charge, with adapter shining weak yellow and green.
Now I am back to Germany, it does not work either.
Any one with any idea of the reason and how to fix it?
Thank you.

Nothing for my Mid 2011 MBA 13" either...It's up for sale anyway.

** Edit**

Just remembered, I DID get the update after I performed a non-destrucitve re-install of OSX prior to the sale! My Bad.
..That's All Folks

Received refund from Apple

I had a 2010 13" MBP. The battery of it died very suddenly after reaching over 1,000 cycles. It was in good health and over the course of a week died entirely. Apple wouldn't cover it because it was over 1,000 cycles. At the time I e-mailed back and forth with an Apple senior advisor demonstrating why I thought they should replace it under AppleCare, namely that Apple's web-site says it should last around 5 years and that after 1,000 cycles it should still have 80% health. But they only warranty it for 1,000 cycles. It also seemed to me that the cycle count was unusually high.

Anyhow, after seeing this update which pretty much described the situation I had perfectly, I contacted Apple—over a year later. The first customer relations agent I spoke with refused a refund outright, but I asked to be transferred to a supervisor and they were amazing. They researched the issue, were very friendly, and ended up refunding me the cost of the battery replacement.

They do have very good service, I have to say.
