    I spilt some tea over the battery, and my macbook no longer works without the charger plugged in.

    The problem is, i got a new battery and it still did not work
    therefore the problem is possibly the actual logic board, which will probably costs a fair bit

    my poor poor computer i have only had it for two weeks!

Unfortunately its a genuine Apple fault and only solution is to replace battery.

However you can try to update battery software first:

I have got apple macbook pro unibody , my charger light is blinking and not charging battery while my laptop is on but when i shut down my laptop its connecting and disconnecting for 10 seconds interval


Try charging your laptop with a spare charger. If your laptop is still under warranty, make an appointment with a genius bar representative at a local Apple store to diagnose your laptop's issue and replace the charger.

Warning!
Do not use the USB ports to charge any external devices from your laptop! Instead use the chargers they were packaged with.

If the spare charger doesn't work after an hour of charging you will have to reset the System Management Controller with the Mac turned off:
Press Shift-Control-Option-Power key combination.
Release and press the power button.

If resetting the SMC doesn't work try resetting the PRAM. Keep in mind that you have to enter the key combination before the grey screen appears!

Reboot your laptop.
Immediately hold down Command-Option-P-R combination.
A reboot sound should confirm the reset.

Apple mac won't charge


It may be the battery, go to the apple menu then to about this mac then click on more info then look for power and it should show what the condition of the battery is. The health information is shown if it says check battery it may need replaced, if you are under applecare get in touch with apple and see what they say. Failing that take it to the nearest apple store and see what they say at the genius bar. Hope this helps.

Battery is charged, but laptop cannot work without mains


You need to install a new power/sound board. These boards go dead on the early Intel MacBook Pros for some reason.

My MacBook wont charge


So does the organge light still not come on now? If it doesn't try a different charger first. If that fails, your DC-Jack module or logic board may need to be replaced. There are detailed instructions on how to do the restore online. Here is an Macbook Repair Guide that shows how to open a Macbook. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Macbook Repair.

Unexpected shutdown with fresh battery ...only cycled 23 times so far. Mac shuts down after about 3 minutes....then shuts down on boot sequence after that. No warning...just shuts down instantly. Macbook...


"Shuts down instantly without warning" is the hallmark of a faulty battery. "All five lights on" is meaningless, as batteries with this fault go from 100% to 0% in a finger-snap. Assuming your battery is under warranty, it should be replaced at no charge.

if you are still under warranty, make an appointment at the genius bar, and have them fix it for free at the apple store.

the macbook pros from last year had faulty nvidia cards in them, and the warranty on them were extended to two years parts and labor.
