MacBook Battery Won\’t Charge…Get \. I have seen this myself on my laptop. I know that my battery is nearing its end, but for some posters it seems to be a new battery that can cause this. This is what I would do.

  1. Make sure you have all the updates to your system. I believe there was a firmware update for the MacBook Pro for this.
  2. Do the SMC reset, the PRAM reset, and fix the disk permissions.
  3. Take out the battery and leave it out for a half hour. Put it back in and start-up the laptop and do a fsck -fy in single user mode.
  4. Trash any battery/power related preferences in the user preference library.

Let me know if this works for you. It worked for me.
