Is this a fry mark?
Found a Surface Book 2 from the ewaste. I tried plugging in with a type-C charger but it doesn't seem to be drawing any power (charger nor the cable are warming up). Holding down the power button to force restart didn't do anything. I haven't tried a surface connector charger yet, but is that mark on the surface connector an indication that some sort of short might've happened? This seems to be the 1060 dGPU model and it would be a shame for it to be left to the trash
Oh also warranty's already expired so unfortunately I can't Tom Sawyer this thing like I did with my 2015 Macbook Pro's battery
So turns out the top seems to work fine after detaching it. I'll look more into why it wouldn't charge through the type C, it's possible that the power delivery circuit might be shared (given that the surface connector can also transfer data, it makes sense for both to possibly share connections). Unfortunately looking at the teardown guide the suface connector-side of the laptop isn't on its own daughterboard, unlike the usb-a connector side, and getting into it also would be really difficult regardless
Is this a good question?
