2011 MacBook Pro not charging!

  Joeydav 12:40 05 Feb 2019

Ever since my battery swell up, I havent been able to charge my 2011 15" MacBook Pro properly.

I've replaced the battery recently and also bought a replacement charger but it still refuses to charge correctly. Most of the time the charging indicator will turn green shortly after I've plugged it in, even though it's nowhere near fully charged... Then when I run a program the fans start going and it just cuts out completely. It will only charge correctly when the light stays red, but that's very rarely and only when I get lucky.

Any ideas guys?
