MacBook Air 13" mid 2012 will not power up
My brother has given me his old MBA as it stopped working (would not power up) and went and bought himself a new one.
At first when I connected the charger the light flashed green constantly.
I opened the laptop to see if there was any immediate damage (water) but could not see anything.
I progressed to move the IO board which was clean and then the logic board.
The logic board had some debris around the Texas Instruments CD3210 area so I cleaned the board and re-assembled the laptop.
On reconnecting the Magsafe the indicator turned orange for a short while then (and ever since) has been a solid green, however the device will still not power up.
I have tried SMC reset. I'm confident that the keyboard etc is working fine and the magsafe light flashes during this process though still no sign of life from the MacBook.
I have also tried to bypass the power button but still nothing.
If I disconnect the battery the magsafe LED turns orange but again still does not power up.
The only possible thing I could think of is that my charger is not an official apple one.
Your help is more than appreciated.
Is this a good question?
