Mac Mini will not start after lightning strike
I have a Mac Mini Mid 2011 2,3GHz i5 that will not start after my router was broken by a lightning strike. Mac Mini was connected to the router by ethernet. It was just the router and Mac Mini that was damaged by the lightning strike.
When I try to push the power-button on the Mini, nothing happens. I've tried different power cables without luck. I suspect that the power supply is broken, and perhaps the logic board.
I have not opened the Mac yet, because then the guarantee is violated. I have neither delivered my Mac to an Apple repair shop, because they would bill me over 100$ (in the country where I live) just to locate the problem (which I happens to believe is the P/S and Logic Board).
Should I sell the Mac as it is, or should I violate the guarantee and check the problem myself? Or is it worth the 100$ to have the Apple repair shop to look at it?
If only the power supply is broken, the repair shop would bill me 400$ for the repair. I am considering changing the power supply my self if this is the problem. But if the logic board is damaged as well, then I guess it is a pretty huge job changing that too.
Any advice what to do? If I should try to fix the Mac on my own, any advice where I could buy a power supply and a Logic Board?
Is this a good question?
