Will not charge even after changing MagSafe
Hi, my MacBook Pro 2009 15" just went out of battery power. When I plugged in the power adapter it lights green but it does not charge. I tried with a charged battery from another A1286 and the machine starts up just fine. But it says "Not charging". So I changed the MagSafe card. I know this MagSafe card works because I have it in another A1286. It is till not charging and the machine will not run off the charger, only on battery, which it does not charge of course.
Just to add this. I tried to reset SMC with no luck.
Where can I look now? Are there some other parts that could be damaged? This MBP has not had any liquid spill.
Glad for any advice!
Update: When I plug in the charger the screen lightens and it goes darker when I remove the charger - so it seems it recognizes there is a charger connected?
Interesting is the system profile images I have attached. Look at the power section when I have the charger connected and not connected. As soon as I plug in the charger the battery symbol changes from battery to (Not charging).
Sorry for the Norwegian profile output. Hope you understand it!
The charger (AC MagSafe adapter) appears not to be working correctly. On the left of this Wiki is the pin out for it. The pins may be stuck and not extending correctly or the unit may have failed. Unplug it and use something like a tooth pick to move the pins in and out. If this is working, use a multimeter to test the output. See if you are getting 16.5 volts from pins 2 & 4 : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MagSafe
