I bought a new MacBook About a month ago. Everything worked perfectly until a week ago. My Battery was completely dead after going on a trip and when i went to plug it in the battery would not charge. The battery information says "battery is not charging" and "power source: AC adaptor". I read a similar post and reset the SMC but still no change. I also thought i was odd that the light on the AC adaptor always stays green. If anyone could help that would be great. Thanks!

Did you take the battery out and re-seat it?

Time to send it back home to apple. The part that connects the logic board to the battery is fairly fragile and may have been damaged in manufacturing.
