Title:

MacBook wont turn on, will display green adapter light/orange charging

Text:

Well im hoping you guys can help me out a bit.

my macbook suddenly stopped turning on. It will show green when i put my magsafe in and it charges the battery (orange light) but thats it. No chime no screen response.

Now i have heard of this 'jumping' idea to turn the macbook on directly from the logic board, but i cant quite work out what exact componets i have to touch, does nybody have a picture showing which parts i need to touch on this model to get it to jump?

or are there some things i have missed? i have tried removing battery, unplugging HDD, taking out ram, smc reset etc

i really dont want it to be the logic board :/

Device:

MacBook Unibody Model A1342
