    Hello guys, I have a very odd problem.

    I was changing my MBP 13" Late 2011 hard disk for another one bigger (750GB to 2TB), and as always I do something with my mac, I disconnected the battery.

    When done, I connected the battery back, but the mac won't turn on, no matter what I do.

    Also, if I connect the charger or the battery, one led from the battery indicator is stuck.

    This is a photo of what I'm talking about: [​IMG]

    Could this be the logic board mixed with some bad luck?

    Best regards.

    Do you get power if you disconnect the battery?
    If not, yeah, bad luck.
    You could do a close inspection of the battery connector, make sure there is no damage to the connector that could be fixed by replacing the battery.

    I suspect that there is a surface-mount fuse blown on the logic board.
    You will need to find a place that knows board-level troubleshooting and how to repair the logic board.
    Or, simpler, replace the logic board.

    If I connect the battery, or if I disconnect it and then plug the power connector does the same thing.

    I guess that the logic board is dead then...
