Faulty MagSafe DC-In Board?

I have a problem get the charger to my Macbook Pro 13" 2011 working, have bought three chargers which all is still working on other Macbooks, but only work rarely on mine.

It have never been dropped or in any harms way and the chargers have always been plugged in with surge-protected plugs.

Could this be the MagSafe DC-In Board or should I look into other tests or parts? Tried everything I can come up with without changing any parts.

Thanks in advance,

Yes - if you are having charging problems it could be the DC in board, it might also be your battery. Look at Utilities:System Profiler->Power and see what it can tell you about the status of the battery and charger.

Thank you for your answer. The battery seems fine in the profiler (300 cycles), and the charger works very well when it is working at all. Noticed that it sometimes stop charging when the MBP is moved.

Found an apple service provider that is willing to do a check for errors with no cost so I will do that and share their findings here.
