I've tried pressing the back light button, but again nothing.
The fan is slightly humming when it's on. But there's no reaction what so ever.
Any ideas? I read something about a logic board. If it is that, would it be an expensive fix?
Try doing a PRAM reset. CMD + alt/option + P + R. Just boot your laptop holding those keys.
Why wouldn't you buy a new battery? I think it's stupid for a person to buy a €2500 laptop, and not replace the battery when it breaks.
You might have fried the motherboard when running on the charging cable. An unnecessary shutdown (i.e. charging cable falling off) could cause this. OR you might have a corrupted HDD, also cause by an unnecessary shutdown. If it's the motherboard/ logic board fault, you'd be looking at buying a new laptop, it'd make more financial sense than repairing it. And if it's a HDD issue, it would be around €100 for a decent replacement HDD, but i'd recommend re-formatting your current HDD first and reinstalling OSX. It could fix it. If it does, don't be a cheap ass, and just buy a replacement battery.
