Where is the location of the back light fuse 820-3476-a?

I recently received a Macbook Pro A1502 Retina liquid spill with logic board number 820-3476-a. Unit boots up but no back light. Does anyone know the location of the back light fuse and wled driver? Crazy thing I had it working fine however when installing the OS back light just went out. Also how many volts should I be getting on pin one?

Thanks

yes F7700 is the fuse

its probably fine though, they rarely blow even under liquid damage. start probing U7700 pins 17,18 and 5 what voltages do you have

This is all wrong. You're talking about buying replacement chips without even having a schematic or a boardview. How can you know what to replace without even knowing where to measure??? How do you know the LED driver is bad?

Get a schematic and a boardview for 820-3476, then answer the following questions before further guessing.

1) Do you have 2.7v to 3v enable signal on pin 17 of U7700?

2) Do you have 5v on pins 5 and 18 of U7700?

3) Is R7733 0 ohms?

4) Is feedback network between R7731 and R7732 functioning properly? Traces to resistors good? Resistors themselves good?

5) What voltage do you have on backlight output, pin 1 of LCD connector? 0v? 12v? 20v? 27v?

It's never the fuse on these. They are smart enough to turn off in case of a fault state.

allenzabbal, you are correct. The reference designator is F7700 and it is a 3A 32V fuse in a 0603 package and the driver is U7700 and it is a LP8548B1SQ_-04 IC.

I checked the fuse and it is not open. Can the wled driver fail without and the fuse still ok? Do you know how may volts I should get on pin 1 on the lvds connector? thanks again.

also where can I get the backlight package LP8548B1SQ? Would a LP8545SQ package work?
