Title:

A1150 will not charge. Can one replace the charging circuit?

Text:

I have a used A1150 (eBay) and it has never been able to charge at all. I followed all the troubleshooting guides from Apple's tech pages and went to my local Apple tech store. They switched the Magsafe and swapped the battery. Their battery worked fine but the Magsafe charger still did not work (it holds a very dim green light when attempting to charge). They said it probably was not the logic board but the actual charging circuit. What part(s) would I need to replace the charging circuit? can one replace the charging circuit without soldering?
