Battery Issues MacBook Pro 13

I have an odd battery issue with a 2010 Unibody 13" MacBook pro

The machine refuses to charge the battery.

I've replaced the battery, the DC in board, do SMC resets, and still nothing.

The indicator lights on the side don't light at all, and the charger stays green constantly.

Bizarrely, the computer will run on battery when disconnected from a power adapter, but says it has no battery.

I'm hoping the answer is not to replace the entire logic board.

Update (06/13/2017)


The computer doesn't seem to think it has a battery.

It just says no battery installed


What's the history of the machine? Water damage, impact, repair history, battery history?
