    Hi i just bought a faulty mbp 2010 13'' will not boot no signs of water!
    when i plug in the magsafe nothing but a faint green light, left it overnight still no change, so i tried a battery with 50% charge nothing again.
    now i put in the original battery (flat i think) and tried a different magsafe i got a green light and after about 20 seconds it begins to fade so no light, if i take the magsafe and put it back into my working mbp then back to the faulty one the same thing happens (fades after a few seconds).

    I tried the same thing with the half charged battery and the magsafe flashes one green flash then off, same thing happens when swapping magsafes between mbp's.

    If no battery is connected i get the fading green light senario.

    both magsafe adapters work fine, its as though when i clip in the magsafe the faulty mbp turns something off in the magsafe, when i remove it and put it into a working mbp it gets reset (works again) then back to faulty one it gets shorted or something..

    Any ideas cheers

    Clean the magsafe pins on the broken MBP? Buy a new logic board?
