Title:

Dim green light on magsafe charger with new battery + DC-in board

Text:

Hi, I've got the dim green light problem on the magsafe charger with my macbook pro.

The laptop works fine when it has battery (only problem being that the battery takes a really long time to charge back up even a few %, and the magsafe has the dim light). If the battery is left to completely empty the laptop won't turn back on, even after being left for days to charge...However, once a new battery is put in which has charge in it, it works again (with the same problem with the slow charging and dim green light)

I've tried...

1) Using another charger (still get the dim light)

2) Resetting the SMC

3) Replacing the battery (I've now been through three!!)

4) Replacing the DC-in board

PLEASE HELP!
