    I have had this MacBook for a year now and suddenly the LED on my MacSafe stopped working. The LED does not show up and when I click the little battery icon it states "Battery is not charging", but when I unplug the MagSafe, it still works perfectly with whatever charge it was left at so i'm guessing that the battery is not dead because it still works, it just doesn't charge anymore. Do I have to buy a new battery or would buying a new charger be fine? I've tried resetting PRAM and NVRAM and the SMC but none of that worked so what could be the problem?

    same problem here

    I have the same problem. It trickle charged last night from 4% to 26% with a weak green light. I hope it's just the magsafe charger not the LB.

    Can anyone help?
