New Battery w/"Replace Now" message (MBP 15" Late 2013)
Another question on this subject as no other question/answer thread seems to address my issue.
Computer: MBP 15" Retina Late 2013
Original issue: Battery stopped charging & was labeled as "Replace Soon" and laptop would not work when plugged in.
Actions taken: After trying my personal knowledge base, checking the internet, and finally calling Apple - ordered a new battery from iFixit. Installed new battery (01-27-2018) and acquired new charger.
Remaining issue: MPB works when plugged in battery is labeled as "Replace Now" and shows 29% charge (with no change since I installed).
Most of the actions taken in an attempt to fix the issue: SMC reset - multiple times, PRAM reset, HD permissions checked with no issue. Unplugged the battery > SMC reset > plugged battery back in > no change. Whenever I did something directly with the battery I would wait the recommended period of time for capacitors to discharge.
The old battery was not in a condition to reinstall for a test and has been recycled.
The CoconutBattery app presents the following:
Have I missed something looking through the forums which I have yet to try? Is the new battery bad? Your insight and help is appreciated.
Here's a screenshot of the now working replacement battery:
