Magsafe adapter doesn't work. What should I check?

Hi.

My Magsafe 1 AC adapter (from Macbook Air, 45W) doesn't work suddenly. No LED indication what so ever. No damaged visually find, even wire is fine.

I have a volt-meter, so I can check some resists or volt. Please let me know what should I check...

These are current status :

Pin 1+2 : Not shorted. 0.44V, 200k Ohm when not plugged in, 5M Ohm when plugged in.

Pin 4+5 : Not shorted. 0.44V, 130k Ohm when not plugged in, 2M Ohm when plugged in.

Pin 1+5 or 2+4 : Shorted, 0.0V, 0 Ohm

What I heard, it should about 6V when it's not connected to notebook. Mine does 0.4V only.

Help me please.

I do know that. But currently pin 2 and 4 only out 0.44V which supposed to out 6.8V with regular reference like Wiki.

BTW, I checked well working adapter too and it also out 0.44V. I don't know what to do next.
