View Full Version : Macbook Air power issues

Apr 15, 2013, 06:26 AM
Hi guys!
I have this MBA 1,6 A1237 which is dead at the moment and i need some help on a component level.
When i press the power-button nothing obviously happens, though the button is functioning and the Logicboard get the signal, I can say that cause i am able to reset the smc by shift+ctrl+alt+cmd and power.
The only way i get the machine to power up is by short circuiting (see picture here (http://postimg.org/image/c9vz4gnfl/))the 4th and the 2nd jumpers on the topcase when the IPD Board Flex Cable is connected, the machine starts, i get POST and all but when i release my twiser/pincete from those jumpers it losses power immediately.
I just wonder if anyone here have experienced that and found a fix.
I do have other boards laying here that i can pull out components from.
Btw..I did disconnected all attached cables that might be short circuiting and it seems to be on board, a component/fuse issue but which one?? My knowledge of electronic circuits is limited, how can I find out of it?

Thanks in advanced!
