Battery will not charge and computer will not run unless plugged in.

My MacBook will not charge or stay on without the magsafe plugged in.

I have replaced the battery connector and the magsafe DC-in board. While it is plugged in the magsafe cable shows orange and the computer shows the charge indicator symbol (little lightning bolt), but it says 0%. And it is a new battery.

Have you tried with a friends (known working) battery? The fact that it is new is usually good enough to assume it's in proper working condition, but does not always guarantee it. Before sending it back or buying a new one, I'd suggest trying a battery that works in another computer first if possible
