I plug it to the electricity
and it does not change to ambar
it stays in green

And it is not turned on

When i turn it on just say Calculating until full
0 % Percent

If i unplug it, it continues working like 15 seconds
and then shutdown (no sleep) just shutdown

Any suggestion?

I experienced the SAME EXACT ISSUE!
My battery is only four months old. I bought it after my original PB battery would only last about a 1/2 hour. It was 2 years old so I figured it was time.
My new battery was working great until I updated to 10.3.8.
Now when I try to charge it, stays at 0% when I unplug from power, PB immediately goes to sleep.
I've tried a few things. Reset PRAM, guy at genius bar reset PMU(whatever that is.) tried putting my barrery in someone else's PB.
Nothing worked.
Finally sent battery back for a replacement. Still waiting.
Any suggestions?
QUOTE Thanks
