on the back side of the laptop had corrosion on this part

cleaned that off and now about to see whether the laptop will charge or not. My question is does it look like any of these chips need to be replaced? Looking at the batteries they seem fine on the actual laptop.

Is this a good question?

@kmkz hopefully those images were taken before you cleaned it. If not, then you definitely want to clean it some more. Also try to zoom in to those areas to inspect the components a bit closer. Image one seems to show some corroded pins as well. Zooming in with an image viewer does not provdie a good enough details to make those out. You actually have to use your camera to do that. What is the 820-xxxx number on your board.

by cleaning with the isopropyl alcohol i was able to work the laptop back and now have power into it. At first it did not boot up, so I did the whole hold down the power for 10 seconds then plugged in the charger, now i have a working mac!
