How to tell if battery dead or problem with logic board?
My early 2011 Macbook Pro recognizes an attached battery but isn't charging it. Per CoconutBattery:
Current Charge: 0 mAh
Maximum Charge: 3716 mAh
Design Capacity: 6900 mAh (53.9%)
Mfg Date: 2011-02-10
Load Cycles: 89
OS X Battery Status: Poor
Battery Temp: 33.6
Charging with 0.0 Watts
Battery State: Discharging
Before I go buy a new battery, is there anyway I can tell if the logic board is damaged and not supplying the battery with power? It runs on the 85w magsafe adapter alone but at significantly reduced clock speed. I tried a SMC reset. Thanks
I noticed that these three orange components appear to have been overheated. There appears to be very minimal corrosion in a couple other places on the port side of the board. Should I try to soak/brush it in alcohol as a first step?
Is this a good question?
