    I have just completed rescuing a water damaged MB C2D which was originally a 2.16 and is now a 1.83. Fun project for a cold Sunday afternoon. 5 hrs.!
    I have one issue with the MB and that is the charging of the battery. The battery icon sometimes shows 'no battery' or if it shows a battery is recognized, it isn't charging. The LED on the mag-safe charger is always green.
    The battery is from the water damaged 2.16 and my thinking is that it may have suffered damage from being exposed to water. Original owner left the MB in the backyard and it started to rain!
    The MB runs fine while connected to the mag-safe charger. I executed the usual PMU resets and this made no changes.
    Thanks, Keith

    the batterhy icon being grayed out is more a problem of the macbook battery input/ macbook battery. First test I would do is find something with a similar macbook and throw their battery into your machine and see if it runs.
