No power but light at magsafe
Received a Unibody today. Seller said sometimes boots but so far nothing.
When the charger is plugged in I get an orange light at magsafe and when the battery check button is pressed it seem to be charging.
Removed battery, RAM and checked the HDD in another machine (works) but no joy.
If anyone has any ideas of what next Id be grateful, hoping its not the motherboard as its a nice tidy machine which I will end up keeping if it can be fixed.
This doesnt look pretty, found this ribbon connector held on with tape.
Stripped the logic board out and its just getting uglier
Looks like its fried
Ive been looking at Logic boards and came across this one on eBay
" Macbook pro 13" A1278 mid 2010 logic board, works on an external monitor, has no led connector on the board(see picture).
Here is the serial number of the laptop from which the logic board was removed: W80436FAATP
You are getting just the logic board(with cpu and gpu on it) and the heatsink."
Anyone know if this one could drop straight in to mine?
Is this a good question?
