I would assume a damaged DC-in board... it started with the failure to charge the battery, and progressed (as often electrical problems do) to no providing adequate power. Switching to a new charger MAY be a temporary fix, if the board damaged the charger... however continued use of a good charger will eventually cause it to fail. Since the price of a replacement magsafe board is about 2x that of a new charger replacing the board is the smart, and economical thing to do.
