Battery not charging dim magesafe light

Helllo dear fixers :)

My macbook wont charge the battery in any case, but works of the battery as well as the power cord, but once the battery is drained it wont recoginse it anymore and also it never chrages it. The light on the magsafeplug is always a very dimmed green, regardless if battery is installed or not.

I read a lot and i was thinking to replace the left IO Board but then i read that in some instances (not exaclty like mine) the problem would be on the logic board.

Any advice? shoudl i give the IO Board a try?

Thanks a 1000 times

Hi thanks for the answer :)

I really hope this will fix it and it isnt the FETs transistors on the main logic board, as i read on an similar problem with an other model....

Any other opinions?

Cheers

don't think to much:) its not so expensive and probably you will fix the problem.

if didn't work, maybe is some connection or transistor in the primary logic board so you need to Reflow but i hope NOT.

good luck!
