    Hello, I have a problem with a mac late 2009,
    the battery is death
    no leds on charger
    the only way to turn on the mac is pushing the power for 10 sec then disconnect the battery then connect again the battery then wait for 10 sec, mac on this way turn on but battery doesn't charge at all, the fan are at maximum speed.

    Can I solve the problem buying another battery ?
    where can i buy a genuine battery ?

    Find the issue first

    There is no guarantee that the new battery will work. So, first you have to find out where are the actual problem is. Maybe it's your device or maybe it's your device's battery. Find out first. Genuine battery will be at any apple store. You have to order first, then they will provide it to you.

    Did you try brushing the magsafe contacts? My Late-2009 Macbook was showing problems for charging because of bad contacts, so I brushed both the magsafe jack as the charger's input and everything went back to normal.

    There are reports from users with near-perfectly functional batteries with 1000+ cycles. However, I think it depends on how much you stress the batteries. My late-2009 Macbook seems to be holding the original charge (and near 5-hours), but it's around 400 cycles.

    Perhaps. Sometimes there was dirt on the contacts. Brushing the contacts with a toothbrush solved the problem in my case.
