Having weird problems with my MacBook Pro 13 (MacBookPro5,5). I bought this needing repair and replaced the LCD, the LCD Glass, the Camera/mic cable, and bought a used battery because the old one showed "Service Now". Just when I thought putting all this work in would get me going, I ran into two different problems that are driving me crazy. The battery will not charge with any magsafe attached (I have quite a few). The only way I can get it to finally charge is to remove the bottom cover, unplug the battery, and use a new, l-shape 85W Power supply to get it to charge again, It charges ONLY until I remove it. Once I remove the power suppy...even for a second, I will not light up again and it will go on battery power until it disappates (then I start all over ). I've tried every reset in the book, so it has nothing to do with the PMR or SMC (or however they are named). Also, before anyone asks...the old "Service Now" battery behaves exactly the same way .The isight camera STILL does not work, even with the new cable. Furthermore, I had another cover for the same unit with a camera in it and its own cable and tried to use the camera with that setup, and it still did not work. My guess is there is either an issue with logic board or the cable connector on the logic board.

The Apple Hardware test passes perfectly every time I run it (quick and extended). Disk is fine...checked it with drive genius and disk drill. I am open to suggestions if anyone has them. I'm guessing this is out of warantee, nor was I the original owner. Anyone have any ideas? Open to anything at this point.
