Upgrade MacBook Air A1466 i5 2013 logic board with a newer one 2015
Hello there I need some help please.
I have a MacBook Air 13'' i5 2013 (A1466) with 4 GB (820-3437-B logic bd) and is non functional from water damage.
I bought a used logic board 820-00165-A i5 4 GB in perfect shape here in Germany and the shop that sold it in the listing said it fits 2013-2014 13'' MacBook Airs and I googled about the board and found out its a 2015 model.
So I put the new logic board in as well as a new DC-in board and for the first time I saw the fan spinning and the screen working but with a low battery logo.
The MagSafe is plugged without a green light, when I try to power on the fan spins and the screen shows an empty battery with a thunderbolt symbol and then the screen goes off!
My questions are:
- Is this board compatible with my machine?
- Is my battery dead because it was sitting for maybe a year or two and that whats causing the problem?
- Why no green light?
Also the battery was empty so a power boost it so I got around 7.13 volts.
Any help would be great. Thank you
Is this a good question?
