That's not necessarily true.you need a new power adapter
Make sure the connection is secure and clean. See the troubleshooting link in the CHARGING section of the following link. Also, Try resetting the SMC.My 2008 black macbook won't charge. The light on the power adapter is not turning on. Does that mean the battery needs to be replaced or do I need a new power adapter?
yeah you're right I did. I got a new one and it works now.
The link(s) I posted are fine. Apple has been having problems with their site in recent months. As with any links to Apple's site that don't load at first, refresh the page a few times and it will load.I'm hoping that's the only issue I'm having, of course that isn't a cheap fix either. My cord will do the same thing or it will turn green and show not charging. I've checked the battery health and it says "normal". I have not tried resetting the SMC - and by the way that link didn't work - so maybe I'll try that next.
