Power Issue No Mag-Safe Light
This one has me stumped. No light on Mag-Safe adapter. Known good Mag-Safe adapter. Replace DC-In board. Installed new battery. Machine boots on battery power and says it is running on reserve power. The battery test light shows 6 of 8 lights on! Zapped PRAM, unplugged removed battery held power button for 10 seconds. No apparent water damage. The machine had been dropped and bent the upper case at the ethernet port (liked like a Z). Pulled it apart and repaired the Z damage. Customer reports that it was at this time that the Mag-Safe light no longer worked. Pulled and tested hard drive on another machine. Any ideas on what to go for next? I have no way to recharge this A1281 battery, as I think this is the only machine that uses it.
Is this a good question?
