Please note: When troubleshooting electronic issues, sometimes the final diagnosis is that it is a physical defect in nature and the ‘answer’ such as in this case might be a recommendation to seek out repair from an authorized service center if the defect in question is not considered “user repairable”. This may be a frustrating answer and I do sympathize but please don't shoot the messenger.

Can you tell me how old this MacBook Pro is, and the year of purchase if possible?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

My Mac about 2 and a half years old

Thanks, Andrew. Let's try resetting the System Management Controller for the MBP.

1. Shut down the computer.

2. Plug in the MagSafe power adapter to a power source, connecting it to the Mac if its not already connected.

3. On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time.

4. Release all the keys and the power button at the same time.

5. Press the power button to turn on the computer. 
Note: The LED on the MagSafe power adapter may change states or temporarily turn off when you reset the SMC.

Now, see if it will charge.

Hopefully, this info will answer your question and if so please don't forget to rate my service
