Your battery is probably not working anymore. Go to an apple store and ask for the repair.

SOURCE: macbook Battery Problems

Hi Molle
To answer your last question first. It is best if possible to use the mains power when you are using your macBook and only use the battery when you cannot connect to mains.

MacBook batteries have a life span based on the number of charge cycles the battery has been through. The battery has a max of 300 cycles before it starts to loss its charge capability. SO you need to determine the health of the battery is it chargeing etc. You can do this via the apple menu and 'about this mac'

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1519

Check the health of the battery as the battery could be faulty if it has only cycled a few times or it may have gone over the 300 and is now lossing its charge in which case you'll need to get a new one.

Hope that helps

Paul

SOURCE: macbook says it is not charging but plug indicates

This usually means that your battery is not holding a charge anymore. You will have to replace your battery. A cheaper route is to keep it always plugged in.

SOURCE: the fan on my macbook

The green light on your power adapter is normal, this indicates that it is charging the battery. The fan within the MacBook is controlled by an internal heat sensor. The fan inside will speed up and slow down based on the internal temperatures.
The X icon for where the battery is, indicates that the battery is not connected or the system doesn't recognize the battery anymore. Meaning, you will need to buy a new battery for your computer.

Switronix Tl-50 won't turn on


I too have had a problem with mine no longer charging. I talked to the manufacture. Since the cord light is on however my torchlights charging light is not on they said could be the batt or could be a bad wire in the charger. I've been debating whether to send it in for fix or buy a new batt to try first. For yours I would send in for repair. Unfortunately these lights only come with a 1 yr manufacturing warranty so if you've had it over a yr you will end up paying 60-130 was the price range I was quoted depending on the problem.

Dell inspiron M5030 won't charge, green light is


This is a common problem. It may be that the charger is dammaged. these Dell chargers have a micro thin communication cable in them that tell the charger to charge the battery. this micro thin cable can often break. Its use it to prevent the laptop battery from over charging, but if it breaks or becomed broken inside tha charger cable, then the laptop simply won't get the charge signal and the battery won't charge. If this is the case, then you will need to replace the charger with another Dell charger compatible with your laptop

Macbook pro won't start/charge


It appears as if your power supply is dead. The power supply is inline with your power cord and has a light on it, if I am correct. Since the green light was dim, then went out all together on your power supply, that would indicate that it would not take a charge any longer, and the dim light, down to none, was the rest of your battery draining. Assuming you tried multiple power outlets, my suggestion would to borrow a power source from a friend and check it, or go to best buy/Apple store and have them use one of theirs to see if it comes on.

Samsung N145 Plus battery charge failure


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Most likely your battery failed during the calibration. Calibrating the battery is not something that you really need to do very often -- if at all. Most likely the deep power cycles you were doing with the calibration damaged the battery.
You'll have to to take the Macbook in to replace the battery -- depending on the model, they will just give you a replacement battery to purchase or you will have to have them replace the battery.
When you get your Macbook back, don't worry about calibrating the battery and just charge as usual.

My MacBook Pro shows the message "Not Charging"


It could be either. Your best bet is to just take it to Apple and let them run a battery/adapter tester. That'll verify everything. Otherwise you can use a different battery and see if the same thing happens.
