Liquid damaged MacBook running really slow. TN1D SMC IO Failed
I left my Macbook in my backpack and I guess my water bottle somehow opened and managed to get my Macbook wet. At first I wasn't getting any signs of life so I performed these steps on it to try to revive it:
1. Dropped the logic board into an ultrasonic cleaner to clean off corrosion. Afterwards, I submerged the motherboard into 99% isopropyl alcohol to displace the water and left it to dry overnight
*At this point, my Macbook is able to turn on but I notice that the fan kicks in at full speed and it's unbearably slow
2. I ran ASD on it and was able to get an "SMC IO Fail" error underneath TN1D. I did a bit of research and found out that TN1D represents the MCP 0 Die Temp.
It sounds to me like it's a faulty sensor. However, I don't know where this is on the motherboard. I have the schematics and boardview for it but it doesn't mention anything about MCP 0 Die.
3. I measured the resistors around the sensors and they all measured as they're supposed to. I checked the voltage rails too and they are measuring correctly as well.
4. I reflowed the SMC chip with an hot air gun but still the same result.
I'm am now stuck. Could someone please point me in the right direction?
I looked at the schematic again and found MCP T-Diode Thermal Sensor. I ended up taking off this chip and putting it back on and it then it passed the ASD test! However after a few minutes, I ran the test again and it failed.
I ended up ordering a new MCP Thermal Sensor chip for the board. I'll replace it once I get it. Hopefully this works.
Replacing the SMC Thermal Diode did not seem to work. It still gives me the same error which is the TN1D error. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Is this a good question?
