I have damaged this component on the mother board (look). Any workaround?
Hi everyone. So I am kind of a brute when it comes to things in general, and I have managed to damage my MacBook Pro by acting like a smart @%^ and trying to fix stuff that wasn't broken.
As you can see from the picture the shielding from one component is almost completely gone. First it was only partially gone and it was working, but if the copper wire would touch other parts then the power adapter light would become dim and the computer not starting.
Now I have damaged more of the shielding after I cut a small length off the copper wire that was sticking out to prevent it from touching the neighbouring parts. This is probably where I did the dumbest move, now realising that the amount of copper might be crucial to the functioning of that component.
Anyway, if you guys can tell me what it is that I am looking at, the function, and if there is any workaround like coating it with something, I would greatly appreciate it.
Is this a good question?
