Broken capacitor(?) near battery connector
The Macbook was dead from beer damage. I cleaned the board and its booting now. It seems to detect the battery but its not charging or powering on from battery (probably low). The magsafe light is always green.
The system is pretty laggy, not sure if this is the normal slowdown from not having a working battery or something else.
The part in the picture was still flat on the board so I didnt see it at first but the metal part was broke on one side.
Can anyone tell me what part exactly this is?
And what should I check to see if this is the only problem stopping the battery from working?
Is this a good question?
