    MACBOOK PRO 2010 DIM GREEN Charger Light won't boot up.
    Boots only on SMC Bypass mode
    Battery doesn't charge
    Changed DC-In Board but still the problem doesn't solve

    Could someone please help in diagnosis :confused::(

    Update : After 3 days long charging, the battery indicator blinks all leds for 5 times
    and when i try to switch on the macbook using powerbutton , the power button led indicator flashes once and it doesn't start . Still trying to figure out the issue. Please help

    The dim green light is a sign of the SMC not seeing the magsafe charger.

    This sounds like a liquid damaged system, very common. Get the schematic and check the data lines on the battery connector for a possible short in the SMC lines.

    Does the BIL read the battery charge level if you press the button?
