Cannot locate power-pads to jump system A1278 EMC No 2554

Hello,

I am having a difficult time locating the power-pads on this model laptop. It's anA1278 with EMC no. 2554. I've watched several videos referring to an A1278 model and haven't found the right one. I have attached some photos. I appreciate any help given.

Thank you

Hi Cody, I found the jumpers right where you pointed me to. I jumped the pads and nothing happened. :-(. I tried with the battery connected, disconnected, with and without power cord plugged in. So at this stage, I have to bring it to my friend who is electronically savvy. Thanks for the tip!!

Just to confirm, you did have the keyboard disconnected when you tried the power pads, correct?

Yes. I have it at a friends shop who is excellent with electronics and is diagnosing it as we speak.
