Mid 2012 Retina MBP 15in

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Alright so I just replaced the battery in my girlfriends MBP using the iFixIt kit. Everything went well and the battery worked, however now it's not charging? The first time I noticed it wasn't charging I realized I forgot to replug in the connector under the logic board by the magsafe port so I took it apart again and plugged it back in.

 

I had her discharge the battery like iFixIt says to, then we plugged it in. No light on the charger at all, and the charging indicator in OSX just said it was running off the power adapter.

 

I tried doing the SMC reset by doing the shift+option+control and power button but I didn't see any change. I took the back cover off again and everything else looked fine.

 

Any tips before I tear this thing apart again?

If SMC reset didn't change anything I'd say it's either a fault battery or you installed it wrong.

Yes it's the genuine iFixIt battery, which says that it's like, an actual apple made battery on it I'm pretty sure

Maybe I was just doing it wrong? When I hold those keys it immediately turns on when I release the power button, is it supposed to do that?

Okay I fixed it I'm just a moron. The plug from the Magsafe connector to the logic board was plugged 90% of the way in, which I guess is enough for the computer to run off the power brick, but that last 10% gets you battery charging.
