    Having an issue charging my mac. When I plug the charger into my mac, it turns orange, so I know its charging, but no matter how long I leave it in for it never has enough power to turn on.

    If I move the charger around slightly at an angel in the hole it turns green and only then will it turn on, but the moment the green light goes back to orange the laptop turns off.

    When I do manage to get it turned on, it says there is 0% battery.

    I've tried using different chargers so could the problem be with the connector in the laptop?

    Please help!!

    Do you know which model it is? It sounds as if your having issues with the DC-in board on the laptop as well as the battery. Have you tried reseating the battery while the laptop is on? Does the battery show up in Mac OS X at all or not?
