SIMRAN, that is a big list of parts not working ;-) anyhow, since the Apple Guru's are not having had a chance to look at your question I allowed myself to upload the Service Manual to my file server for you to download. Pages of interest to you are 29 and on. I do hope that this will get you started. Again, I am not an Apple person , but do like to learn about it. That is why I have the service manual...:-) good Luck
