yesterday I replaced my superdive with an optibay kit, put my HDD inside and using now a SSD in the primary slot. I noticed that a tiny plastic square had broken off located at the Airport/Camera/
Could this tiny plastic square really cause the issue?
My Bluetooth and my camera are still working. I have also tried a SMC and PRAM reset.
What is the most possible explanation for my problem?
Software, connector, cable or the airport card?
I found a similar issue here and I dont you how to fix it with a tape...
Thanks in advance!
the little black piece of plastic with adhesive on it, is just there to keep the camera/airport-cable in its place.
The reason they added this, is that when you slightly misplace the connector whilst power is on the logicboard, the cable can cause a shortcircuit on the logic board. Look for the black piece of tape/sticker directly on the right side of the connector on the board. You can pry this sticker of with a nylon stick. Below it, there are several resistors/capac
Otherwise you may have blown the airportcard inside the display clutch cover (less expensive) or a small chance that there is something wrong with the airport/camera-cable.
my bet would be that you fried the motherboard.:( i feel your pain!
