Will not charge even after changing MagSafe
Hi, my MacBook Pro 2009 15" just went out of battery power. When I plugged in the power adapter it lights green but it does not charge. I tried with a charged battery from another A1286 and the machine starts up just fine. But it says "Not charging". So I changed the MagSafe card. I know this MagSafe card works because I have it in another A1286. It is till not charging and the machine will not run off the charger, only on battery, which it does not charge of course.
Just to add this. I tried to reset SMC with no luck.
Where can I look now? Are there some other parts that could be damaged? This MBP has not had any liquid spill.
Glad for any advice!
Update: When I plug in the charger the screen lightens and it goes darker when I remove the charger - so it seems it recognizes there is a charger connected?
Interesting is the system profile images I have attached. Look at the power section when I have the charger connected and not connected. As soon as I plug in the charger the battery symbol changes from battery to (Not charging).
Sorry for the Norwegian profile output. Hope you understand it!
Это хороший вопрос?
I have the exact same problem but haven't changed the MagSafe board yet. My power adaptor is working fine on other laptops. If I find a solution I will post here.

Nicolas, does your charger light green? Mine does. And like you see on the profile report it says it is connected. But if I pull it out the whole machine dies.
Thanks Nicolas for checking. I also will have to either get the logic board repaired or buy a new logic. Too bad :-)
Just an update on this issue. The problem was a small circuit that needed to be replaced on the logic board. I got an ebay repair service that changed a chip for me. Now it works like a charm.
