    My MBP is about 4 years old, and the old battery had a cycle count of 1000+ so I bought a replacement last week and replaced it myself. Everything worked great (patted myself on the shoulder :cool: ) until a few days ago I noticed it wasn't charging. The green LED indicator is on so I think the Magsafe isn't broken.

    I've tried resetting the SMC & PRAM (or I think I did) but no luck. :( Not sure what my other options are but I think I'm going to try wipe the connectors with alcohol & cotton swab next.

    Here is the info on my batts / AC:

    Would it be safe to assume it's the DC in board or logic board that's causing this?

    Well, you got three cycles out of it, unless one or more (or all) happened prior to you purchasing it. I'd say it's probably a defective battery.

    To be sure, if you still have it, swap the old battery back in and see if you can at least still charge that one. That should give you your answer.

    No it was at 0 when I bought it and first installed it. It worked for a few days (charged, unplugged and used, replugged and charged again).

    Im kicking myself for not procrastinate on taking the battery to the battery recyle program. Usually I'm not as efficient haha

    Strange... All of the sudden now it is saying that it's charged, but as soon as I unplugged the AC Adapter, the MBP dies. It seems like it refuses to use power source from battery. Istat is saying my battery health is at 94%.

    Anyone have any ideas please??

    Sounds like your battery needs to be replaced before you damage anything.

    Book a Genius Bar appointment and let them check under the hood, especially If you're still in Warranty.
