You state "after a day", but not really what. Sounds like you changed the battery. What was going on before that? As for the $65, correct diagnostics requires a lot of knowledge and experience. Figuring out the problem can be the major time consuming part of a repair. When you go to the doctors office he charges for that time, knowledge and tests, why do you think a computer diagnostician should give it away for free?

My macbook is programmed to start 6am and shutdown 11pm.

after a day, it doesnt start.

$65 here is 28% of minimal salary, I dont want a free diagnostic, i want a fair price.

I'm from Brazil.
