MacBook Unibody Model A1278

MacBook Unibody Model A1278 DC-In Board Replacement


My Problem

The Macbook of my Wife suddenly switches off, with green light of Macsafe connector.

Also when charging, only short time charges, then switches to green.

When i took out Battery, Macbook won't start.

My Fix

1st replaced Battery by a new one. - but same thing.

Then i thought it might be the main board, till i read

some Articles here on iFixit about charging and mac-safe.

Ordered the DC-Inboard and voila.

All working now perfect.

My Advice

Never thought when Macsafe Connector is green,

and Macbook has no Battery in it, it won't boot with this faulty unit.
