Looking for a capacitor identification 68 C32?

MacBook Pro A1502

I have this laptop in hand and it has a blown capacitor in the area between the processor and the SSD. There are many capacitors on this board that are the same size and the ones next to it have the markings of "68 C32" so I am guessing that this blown one has the same value to it. It looks like something to do with the voltage regulator of the processor.

There are nine A1502 machines. Pick one, tell us what it is.

Take a photos or a couple and post them. Identify what you are referring to on the photo and some may know.


suprawes, the best way of getting it identified is by telling use what board it is. So give us the 820-XXXX number that is silkscreened on the board. Take acouple of images of the board and mark the location where the capacitor is situated. Use this guide Adding images to an existing question to add images to your original question.


Here are a couple of photos, one of the entire board and one of the affected area. Can you give any guidance on what area of the board I might find the silkscreening? I am looking all over and cannot find any 820-xxxx numbers. I only find a sticker near the back vents that starts with C0234XXXXXXXXX



The 820-xxxx number may be under the memory. Or near the fan. It's never easy to find.
