Can't ON after a pop/spark sound during charging while at work

Hi, I'm Harry, my Macbook pro 13" Retina is dead after a spark sound while charging. But if I plug in the charger connector, the green or orange indicator still can be seen. I can see one of the component on the borad had blown off. So my question is, how possible can it be repaired. Please give some suggestion. Thank you. Please the picture below.

@harrymaj when dealing with issues like this you must make sure you identify your logic board for us. That way we do not have to research any of this and can focus on your problem. Anyhow, the part that has failed on your board is reference designator C7431 which is a 68UF 16V 20% poly-tant capacitor in a CASE-D2E package. It is a critical part of your computers DDR3L (1V35 S3) REGULATOR . This is to identify the part, not what has happened to your board. You will have to change the component anyway.

Well I do apologize Harry, but if the components on the motherboard itself are burnt out, it may require an entire motherboard replacement. However, apple doesn't readily supply motherboards for MacBooks so it may be best to take it to a specialist that may have an extra or finding one on the web from a VERY trusted seller.

Very possible to repair from a decent microsoldering / troubleshooting shop. There are quite a few out there and possibly some locally for you. It would cost probably about half what a new motherboard through Apple would cost if not less.

Are you up to the task of trying to troubleshoot it yourself? If so, give us some more information on you macbook and we can see what we can do to help!

Good luck!
