사용자에게 답변하기: Replacement battery now not recognised after 4 days of workingAs suspected the issue wasn't the battery but a problem with the mac its self. Turns out I had a faulty power button which wasn't allowing for the SMC reset to fully complete (unless I was pressing it in super hard and at a slight angle it wouldn't register as been held down) This likely explains why it sounded like it was trying to power on but would instantly cut out (could hear the fans coming on and cutting out on a repeated loop) as I imagine the power button was switching itself off and on again. Managed to pickup a refurbed keyboard and palmrest for a reasonable price and while I had it apart figured it best to replace the DC in for good measure as didn't fancy taking it apart again to replace in the future. This has fixed the problem and seems kinda obvious in hindsight.
