MacBook not charging
The repair went pretty smoothly. The trickiest part was removing the keyboard ribbon cable. The instructions were not clear to show the actual location of the section that you have to flip up. With patience it wasn't too difficult to figure out. The project tray came in very handy to place parts and screws in order of disassembly making reassembly simple.
Use the project tray to sort and keep parts in order and carefully make note of which screws go where particularly with the fans and the logic board. Also when re-installing the logic board make sure none of the ribbon connectors are trapped underneath it before you screw it down.
MacBook Pro was no longer charging, there was charring. Something was wrong with my original MagSafe connector.
It went great! The iFixit walkthrough was very helpful. I have done this sort of thing, so I was comfortable with it.
Print out the instructions, and then tape the screws to them with clear scotch tape. You can even sort of tape them in the layout arrangement in the picture so you know exactly how to put them back!
The battery was not charging, the green led sometimes was on, sometimes off. With the new magsafe2 board the battery begins to charge, the led changes from green to orange. But there is one problem. When the computer is turned on, the led turns off and the computer remains working maintained only by the battery. It isn't possible to charge the battery and use the notebook at same time. If the computer is turned off, the battery is charged.
I installed the new board following the instructions, without problem.
No. I sent the notebook to a technician, but he doesn't know yet what happened. If someone can help, would be great.
