    Hi All,

    I'm new here and creating a new topic because after several hours looking for a solution, I still cannot resolve my issue.

    First of all, you should know my MacBook Pro has been water damaged and miraculously survived (I know water and computer don't mix!!).

    However, since that incident, my battery does not charge anymore (I ordered a new battery and same problem - there is no problem with the battery, nor with the charger).

    Here are a few facts which might help in your analysis:

    - the MagSafe light is green
    - the battery symbol on the upper right corner of my screen showing the battery percentage is a thunderbolt
    - when I clic on the battery symbol, I can read "Battery is not charging" and "Power source: Power Adapter"
    - my MacBook works on battery but the battery never charges (keeps going down when I use my MacBook without connecting it to the charger)

    I did try reset SMC and PRAM, tried to disconnect/reconnect the charger/battery but nothing worked.

    I am wondering whether there is a hardware problem due to the water (oxydation or something), and if so, what piece am I supposed to change (I have been told about the "logic board" but I'm not sure).

    Happy to try anything you might think about.

    Thanks a lot in advance,

    This may seem like a stupid question, but what % is your battery at, right now?

    Anything over 94% could very well not charge as it is considered "full".

    No unfortunately 47% which is, I believe, the battery percentage that was initially charged on the new battery I ordered.
