    Alright I bought a Black MacBook on ebay that had some problems. I have fixed all of them and the last one partially. The problem that i am having is that the macbook will charge but only when the screen is closed to 45 degrees open. when i fully open the screen the macbook will stop charging but still run off the battery. any help would be appreciated.

    i would guess the machines been opened and the latch is catching/moving the power supply?

    sounds easy to fix if thats the case : just tighten up everything

    if the left hinge thingy is not tight as a ducks behind, o would think it would push on the board
