Resistor value on 128GB SSD needed - please measure and share

Hi all,

I've been working on a water damaged 2015 Macbook air, following the amazing instructions from Louis Rossman, on YouTube. It's mostly working, but the SSD is dead.

Having looked at the SSD, I can tell a resistor appears to have blown. If you have this SSD, could you please measure it's value and share it? It would be a lifesaver.

Here is a picture of the resistor in question :

The model is a MZ-JPV128R, 128GB out of a 2015 macbook air

Is this a good question?

@djdannyrock how do you figure that? How do you even know it is a resistor? You have the schematic? You measured it on your SSD....


Hi Daniel, how did you get the ohm value?

@oldturkey03 , wish I had the schematic, it would make this a lot easier. I just assume it's a resistor since it's black. In my experience, resistors are usually black, caps are usually red. Obviously I'm guessing, but without a diagram, I can't do much else.


Pierre Sarazin my comment was really directed toward @djdannyrock. I think somebody is just doing some guessing;-)

11-12ohms measured on a dead MZ-JPV2560; component layout is identical in this area. Haven't got a 128GB SSD to hand but should be the same. Don't use too much heat on the SSD, PCB is thin and you'll boil the chip on the other side

Thanks so much!!!


FYI, I replaced it tonight with a resistor I scavenged from another MacBook ... the thing works! Thank you thank you thank you


Good to hear :)
