How can I set charge control pin in magsafe to charge laptop?

Hey everybody. The ground wire near the L section of the magsafe adapter was broken so i kinda opened it up to connect it again... The thing is that i found a small circuit inside that helps in lighting the LED. While i was opening i cut the circuit by mistake and so i removed the LED indicators from both the sides... In short my adapter only has the +ve and -ve connections... Now whenever i connect it to my laptop, I get the supply from the adapter but it doesn't charge my battery (battery status-"not charging") because the charge control pin is not connected to anything... Can anyone tell me what to do or how to connect the charge control pin so that it starts charging my battery again? I can add additional components like resistors, etc if necessary...

Here's the pinout on the MagSafe:

I already checked the pinout... I know that the middle pin is the charge control pin but the problem is that I think it needs to be connected somewhere or to a load in order for the charging to take place...


From what i read... It says that it might charge if a add a 430kohm or 500kohm resistor between charge control pin and ground... Can i have your opinion on this...


did u find a solution?
