Not charging, Charger light Green
Got a Macbook (mid 2007 model) that will not charge. It works off the power cord but cant charge the battery.
I charged the battery in another macbook and it works fine and holds charge. I also tried a different magsafe power adapter and same thing.
When plugged it, light turns GREEN and stays lit but in Max OSX says "Not Charging".
Tried a SMC reset no luck..
Any advice what it could be? Im looking at the DC-IN port but anyway i can narrow it down to that specifically?
Some say to clean the connector port, any recommendations with what? Qtip and nail remover?
The most common on this is the magsafe board. Here's how to fix it: Installing MacBook Core 2 Duo Magsafe Board

It could be the battery connector. This happens a lot if the book was set in liquid: Installing MacBook Core 2 Duo Battery Connector
