OK, while you haven’t pushed it past the cycle limit of 1k it’s quite old, just over 10 years! It’s time to replace it.

But lets also check your MagSafe connector on your system and make sure the charger is in good shape!

Make sure yours doesn’t look like this! And the cable is not messed up as well.

Nope, the connector isn't burned and the cable looks good too but I might try to replace the MagSafe connector and see if that helps.

I'm guessing that the discolouration around one of the pins, either on the mbp or the charger means it's 'fried'? My charger has the top end pin with slight discolouration and sometimes it doesn't light up properly and the battery says it's not charging. Brand new battery by the way.

@pamdo53 - Time to replace both the DC-In board and you have a knockoff charger which damaged it from arcing! Lacking safety features, cheap MacBook chargers create big sparks

Make sure you get a REAL Apple unit directly from Apple as the ones sold on Amazon and eBay are 90% kickoffs! Apple.Com - MagSafe Power Adapters


Thanks. I do have a spare Apple original charger which seems to work fine. The "damaged" one has a T connector which makes me suspicious. It came with the machine.
