Won't boot with battery depleted?
I'm trying to recover a broken Macbook pro 15, that had its battery completely depleted cause of a short circuit.
I'm trying to determine if the logic board is recoverable and if it is worth it to buy a new battery or not. (i.e. is the logic board fried or not).
Charger turn green but not orange and doesn't seem to charge the battery (the same symptoms are present if I take the battery completely out).
Can anyone confirm that this model of MacBook Pro (unibody with internal battery) wont turn on if no battery is connected to the motherboard but only the power adapter ?
Or will it be able to boot normally even when you unplug the internal battery ?
Thanks in advance for any help.
Is this a good question?
