Won't turn on, and has that burned circuit smell!
One second it was working, and the next it was off with that funny burning smell coming from the corner where the MagSafe connects. I unplugged the AC adapter and pressed the power button again, and this time I saw a tiny bit of smoke from that corner too! My AC adapter works fine on another MacBook. I have not yet disassembled the computer to check the damage, but could my main board be damaged in addition to the left side IO board? I want to order the left IO board to fix it, but not if the main logic board is fried as well. Does anyone know if the logic board is isolated from some (obviously) catastrophic failure of the left IO board?
Is this a good question?
