i/O or Logic Board?
Hi all, first time post on here after having used ifixit guides for a couple of fixes. i have a MBA 11” early 2015 with me that died recently. After stripping it down it became obvious the cause was liquid damage primarily around the SMC chip(bad news i know).
I am going down the route of replacing the logic board first but this raises an interesting question for this and any other machines that come my way. Does anybody use a logical step by step process to determine which component is bad. I have seen several posts here with similar scenarios with great solutions but all achieved via various routes. i suppose i’m looking for a generic troubleshooting process. I’m sure many of you who are old hands at this have a well established thought process which i am trying to learn for myself. Thank you!
Is this a good question?
