    I recently had a logic board repaired on my MBP (13 inch, 2011, i5) after it could not be turned on but now it has another issue. It suddenly stopped charging. The LED on magsafe does not turn ot at all. I moved it around a bit and blew into it and it started working again but now it stopped and even the moving around does not help anymore. What could be the problem? Is it the charger or has something broken again?

    Most likely the issue is the charger. Do you have another power supply or have access to one to try it?

    Yep, sounds like a charger problem - are the wires frayed in any way?

    I have several where the rubber has broken and the wires are exposed, but still work. But the fact it worked, then stopped again suggests charger problem, imo.

    Worst case scenario, test it in an Apple Store when you next pass one, if you cannot get your hands on a friend's charger.

    This isn't conclusive, but you can try flipping the plug over when you attach the MagSafe. I've had this problem with my MBP, particularly when using a MagSafe adapter from the old style to new style plug, and wiggling it around helps some for me, but so does flipping it over.

    I tried it and tried wiggling it around. It helped for a while but it does not work at all now.

    You can plug your friend's in if it is MagSafe 2 and see if it works, it isn't going to hurt anything to see if it works.
