Power button doesn't work logic board damaged.
I bought this MacBook Pro some years ago. It was used and I had never opened it. Yesterday it stopped working, I noticed the power button just wasn't working.
I took the bottom cover off and I noticed that there were a little cable between the power pads test point on the logic board and the power button.
Now I have a bad situation, one of the pads on the logic board has been pulled off (the green one of the picture attached), it doesn't exist anymore. Is there is an alternative point that I can use to turn my system on?
I've made a mistake posting the first pic. it was just an example pic.
Those are the real pics. in the first one you can see the yellow cable solder to the pad.
In the second one you can see the pad missing. The keyboard works perfect it was not a problem of the key because with the yellow cable soldered it worked for more than 3 years.
After i don't know what happened and it stopped to work. I never knew that there were this modify because until saturday i never opened the macbook. Someone before me made this modify.
