Top left gold plated power cables?
MacBook doesn't power up anymore after the battery ran out of juice. The light of the MagSafe adapter doesn't give an indicator light either. Two adapters tested. SMC reset done.
Figured it would be the MagSafe DC-in board. Just replaced it. No luck. No light either.
Now about two years before I swapped the Super Drive for an SSD kit, and damaged a gold plated cable, of which the connector is labelled J2. There are 3 of those same connectors next to each other in the left top corner. Presumable the power cable running through the hinge of the display?
I was thinking it might be a short within the cable (like in coax), but I am not sure if it is this kind of cable. Could be the connection is damaged all together, though it did work fine for two years.
Can anyone clarify a bit more on the matter? Or any ideas what else could be the problem?
Is this a good question?
