After powersurge no light on magsafe+no charge. Board or PwrSupply?
Power went out today and the house got got a surge when power was restored. Bedroom light was much brighter than usual for 30 seconds or so. Misc. cheap Household powerstrip got fried+microwave oven no longer works. My MBP17 was running at the time and I didn't think to quickly power down when the power went out. I didn't realize till later that the magsafe was not 'green'. I always run off the powersupply. The MBP and 3 external drives are plugged into an inexpensive 'protected' powerstrip. Had no trouble with any of the hd's. I bought the powersupply a couple months ago, 'reconditioned' frrom OWC. Could it be a bad PS and just bad timing, or maybe a bad magsafe board? I don't have access to another PS. How do you check voltage with those little pins in the T-connector? Different voltage per pin? Or same v accross them all? Thanks for any help!

More info...I tried other sockets on the ps, different outlets in my room and others around the house. I get no light from the magsafe LED at all. The MB ran just fine until the battery ran out. I was playing with garageband until I noticed the low battery, and then realized the magsafe's green light was out. No orange or red either.The battery doesn't last long at all, so I keep it plugged in 99% of the time. I'm hoping the ps is the problem and the logic and left I/O boards are undamaged. I guess I need to find someone with a MBP I can test the ps on...
Is this a good question?
