MacBook not charging despite claiming it is!
Two days ago my A1278's (mid 2012) battery died (service battery warning). No big deal, I took it in to the Apple Store this morning and had it replaced (would have done it myself, but I need the computer for December).
However, this new battery is not charging whatsoever. Sometimes when I plug in the cord it claims it's not charging, other times it claims it's charging but the percentage does not change, and other times the LED turns orange but the laptop does not even recognize that the charger is plugged in. The computer works and the battery itself is holding a charge that diminishes each time I unplug it briefly (leading me to further conclude it's not charging when it says it is). The battery condition is stated as Normal.
I know it's not a charger problem, as I tried two different chargers out with the same result. I doubt it's a faulty battery, because I just had it replaced and CoconutBattery is telling me everything's alright. I tried resetting the SRC and PRAM to no avail. I'd also like to mention that the laptop is not liquid damaged or anything.
What's going on here? Could it be a misinstalled battery on Apple's part? Or, is it the charger port that's wonky, or could it even be something like the logic board? Has anyone else encountered this issue? I feel like an idiot blowing $170 on a new battery only to find out that something else is at fault here.
Thanks in advance.
Is this a good question?
