Identify capacitor/resistor that shorted out on logic board
Hey guys. The cushion thing that covers the cable connection for the wifi/isight/Bluetooth slid out of place, causing a short in a part in my logic board. I'd like to replace this piece but I cannot identify it.
Brief history of laptop:
New optic drive
Upgraded ram to 8gb
Suffered water damage. Replaced logic board.
Everything worked great for a few days until I noticed wifi saying "no wifi hardware installed". Then I observed this on the logic board.
Images can be seen here:
Looks as though a few other people have had this issue and no one has any results in resolving it. A 25 cent cap sounds a lot better than a 200 dollar repair.
Here is an image of my repair. The inductor is impossibly small, so i soldered it to two thin copper wires that I then attached to the respective spots on the logic board. I then laid down electric tape so as to not let it short circuit anything else, and followed up with a small dab of hot glue to not allow the wires to shift anywhere.
Afterwards I turned on the computer and viola! Wifi works and so does isight! Thanks again for your help!
Is this a good question?
