DC-in board keeps blowing
After being exposed to rain, my iBook could only run of battery and would not charge, with the connector light staying off. AC plug works fine on other Computers. Diagnosed that DC-in board was dead, bought a new one and installed it. All went well, till I plugged the mac in. First light on connector went Green for about 1/2s, then Amber, then Red. Then a little explosion sound followed and the smell of burnt electronics rose from the DC-in board. Took Mac appart and sure enough part of the DC-in Board (where the DC connector connects to the actual circuit board is gone) is fried.
Now I'm out of ideas... Anyone?
Is this a good question?
