A1297 malfunctions with charging and the adaptor light, can be caused by either a failed DCin board, or a failed logic board. Symptoms of logic board failure are: no lights on the mag-safe, and a battery that indicates "not charging" at all times, but charges at a glacial pace, taking about 4 days to fully recharge from an exhausted state. If you actually run the battery out, the computer will shut down and not restart until the battery is recharged. Check for visible burns on the main circuit board before replacing the battery or DC board.
