Hi Guys, I may have posted up something on this sometime ago but on reading other similar threads on the water damaged no charge issue i wonder if its possible mine is not so severe but could do with some advice on where to look and test initially if you can help? I got the Mac book knowing it was water damaged (ex demo...overhead flood in shop) - Initially it did power on automatically only with the mag connection...keyboard was faulty (so was power button) - Replaced keyboard..reinstalled OSX... all fantastic... even bought a new battery but this didnt charge either. I have been using the Mac for a while now on PSU only with no problems at all....even found a fellow 17" mac owner so i could charge my battery via their mac...just so i didnt lose the time and wireless settings etc. I would LOVE to have it charging again and was hoping maybe one fuse/resistor as a fuse has just blown? When i opened the Mac originally i found corrosion on various parts of the board so the laptop was just closed and boxed after the water damage....so the battery would have been live...and it possible plugged in at the time if out on the shop floor....so, since its ALL working perfectly apart from charging....the battery IS feeding the time and settings (pram?) but will not turn on from battery..only mains? I would even go as far as getting an SMD rework station if it was all worth it? Cheers.
