    You might check in the magsafe connector on both the computer and cable to be sure some lint or gunk hasn't lodged itself in there. Also check that the spring-loaded connector pins aren't stuck down.

    Make sure its plugged in right, the connector is a little funky the way you position it, make sure it "clicks" into place, and make sure there isn't anything interfering with a good connection, like lint or some other foreign material that may have gotten lodged in the connector.

    He means to make sure that the plug connectors are clean (also the area where it plugs into the computer).
    And are you sure it's not charging? I've had a situation where the charging light wouldn't turn on, but the battery sign on the computer would show it's charging

    Its all clean, I actually hardly used it since I purchased it early this month.
    It seems like its actually charging but why the light is off and it says its not charging at the top right corner.

    You'd better go to the shop for checking or claim with the new one if any.
    If the shop ask for fix it, just deny and insist to change with the new one.
