MagSafe Burned out. Won't turn on.
I've a MBP 15" Unibody A1286.
I have been working on a University project. While all of the sudden the mac turned off with a sound of an spark (arc). And a burning smell from the MagSafe.
I have tried opening th mac and inspecting the damage. Although other than the burning smell from the DC IO there is nothing that I can see.
When the charger is plugged in the smell carries on and the green light on the MagSafe appears. Also while the charger plugged in the battery button works and shows the current state of my battery (around 50%)
When the charger is unplugged the battery status doesn't respond. (Thought I added that here).
I have seen some topics about this issue although I preferred to make my own topic and ask to cross check all the information.
As a heads up I'm using the 60W charger (even tho I know I should be using the 85W).
Do you think replacing th DC Board would fix the issue?
Is this a good question?
