2009 A1286 MacBook Pro not responding to any input?
I have what I believe is a Non-Water damaged Mid 2009 MacBook Pro that I recently picked up from eBay.
However when I tried to turn it on, I found something I have seen happen before, which is that the MacBook does not respond to the keyboard at all. So I took off the bottom panel and shorted the power button pins, because that always works for non responsive keyboards, however not only did I find zero damage on the cable or anything else, but shorting the power button pins yielded no response at all. No fanspin, no power to the hdd, no DVD drive noises, just complete silence like the battery was dead or something.
I have tried resetting SMC, but that hasn’t worked because the MacBook does not respond to any activity on the keyboard.
All it does is charge the battery and display how much percentage is left from the built-in battery meter. Any help is appreciated as I’m at a loss as to what is going wrong here.
I also do have a hot-air station, so if there’s any keyboard controller chip that goes bad, I can replace it.
Is this a good question?
