    You could try resetting the logic board by unplugging your macbook, taking the battery out, and then holding the power button down for 5-10 seconds. That fixed my problem when my battery wouldn't charge.

    There is a known issue with batteries not working. As long as your macbook is under applecare apple will send you a new battery, you'll just have to use the box they supply you to return the faulty battery.

    talk to apple and you can get a new one.
    (if you are under apple care)
