Title:

Won’t Power on! - Help! Small Financial Reward for correct answer

Text:

Hi All,
 
I was given a MacBook Pro 2010 13” by a friend which doesn’t turn on. The charger given to me is a T Shape (I gather I need a L Shape, does this matter if the same voltage?)
 
The charger only once every 5/6 times lights up Green when I plug it in so I have ordered a new charger which arrives today. The battery is in good condition as is the screen
 
I have opened it up and have taken out the RAM and changed slots, done an SMC reset and that’s about it.
 
The logic board is pictured here - There is a connector loose, no idea what that is for!!
 
is there anything else that could be causing the issue?

Thanks for the help so far guys!!!
 
I will look to try and clean the logic board first before I consider buying a new one.
 
Any recommendations on the product to do that would be amazing!
