    I am having trouble with a battery charging on a MacBook. It appears either it's not charging or is not holding a charge since I can only use the MacBook while it's plugged in. The light doesn't come on on the charger when it's plugged into the Mac. Is there any idea what could be going on? Unfortunately the nearest Apple Store is not that close so I'm hoping to be able to solve this without going to the Apple Store.

    The good side of the grass.
    I have one with similar symptoms. Can only operate while plugged in, no charging at all. Took it to geniuses and has a bad logic board. Replacement/repair costs close to a refurb MB so it's now a desktop. Sorry, hope news is better for you.:mad:
