So I'm reading a news article this morning and my 2011 MBP 2.0 i7 just powers off then begins trying to boot back up. 5 or so seconds into the boot up it powers down again. It does this cycle a few times before I force power down and start trying to troubleshoot. End result is after much troubleshooting leading me nowhere, I brought it to work with me to mess with. Got to work, tried to turn it on off of battery and....nothing. Press the battery indicator button, nothing. I did a PRAM and SMC reset and since then, all symptoms have changed and become clearer. I get 5 LED flashes from the sleep indicator when I power on. I get 5 LED flashes from the battery indicator when I press that button. In OS X it says "Condition: Replace Now" for the battery. All of these things point to a battery that has gone bad after only 3 charging cycles. For those interested, here are the battery details from System Information right now: Battery Information: Model Information: Serial Number: D861121022FDGDLAH Manufacturer: SMP Device Name: bq20z451 Pack Lot Code: 0 PCB Lot Code: 0 Firmware Version: 406 Hardware Revision: 2 Cell Revision: 158 Charge Information: Charge Remaining (mAh): 0 Fully Charged: Yes Charging: No Full Charge Capacity (mAh): 0 Health Information: Cycle Count: 3 Condition: Replace Now Battery Installed: Yes Amperage (mA): 0 Voltage (mV): 10654 Before I spend $20 round trip to drop my laptop off at Apple Shibuya only to have to spend another $20 to pick it up later, is there anything else I could try before throwing in the towel and turning it in for warranty?
