What MacBook do you have ??

shurely - i could only guess - but it sounds like damage around the dc-in board or around the battery connector

here are the different MacBooks with the repair guides - pick the right one and open yours as describen in the guide - watch out for burned or corroded parts, there cozld be signs of white/greenish stuff - that must be carefully cleaned with rubbing alcohol

and don't connect the magsafe to your MacBook - everytime you do that it shortens anything inside
