    Where are the power-on jumpers on a mid-2013 MacBook Pro logic board?


    I'm trying to locate the power-on jumpers on the logic board of Early-2013 13" MacBook Pro
    Retina Display.

    I have disassembled and cleaned all components after I had a liquid spill. Computer seems to be charging ok now; previously was not. I suspect the keyboard is damaged but want to start computer to run a systems check.

    I'm not sure whether or not this carries over to the retinas but on the older 13" non-retina you had to short pins on the keyboard connection (much like the power button does, being that it's built into the keyboard circuitry).

    On the older model it was pin 5 & a ground source. Can't remember which pin serves as ground.

    Again, not sure if this applies to the retinas but it's worth a shot.


    After a quick search, it looks like pin 5 and one of the standoffs or pin 29 (ground) can be shorted on the keyboard connections.
