Macbook Pro 5,5 Won't Charge

I'm looking at a broken (all I can afford!) Macbook Pro version 5,5, where the seller states that the unit will not charge. The photos show the unit has had stickers on it but also that the unit has only 1GB of RAM (odd?).

I've been reading and it seems that some kind of master reset will fix this problem more often than not in Macbooks, that or some kind of corrosion on the 'DC board' internally.

I consider myself to be very competent electrically (although very much 'green' when it comes to Macs!), as this is how I purchase a majority of my electronics (cheap, broken) whereby I fix them myself (example)--however I'm a little weary about buying this is something serious is the issue, for example, the logic board.

I'm curious if anyone on here is well acquainted with the various failure modes which result in a battery not being able to charge.

For full disclosure, this unit is in Toronto on eBay, if you want to take a peak. I really really would like to buy it if it can be fixed simply!
