Mac Mini is dead
I have this mac mini that died a week after applecare expired. I would like to repair it, but I do not know what should I repair. I have been told I have to replace the whole logic board which would be too expensive. But, still wondering if there is something I could do.
When plugged in, it is dead, no light, no power, no nothing. And it is not the power cable, I know that because in its time I took it to the apple store and they plugged it with a good power cable. It is just plain dead. Is the only solution to change the whole logic board? or is there something else that could be done?
Is dit een goede vraag?
Can you describe what happened just before it died? Did you smell anything or hear any odd noises? Did you have the system plugged into a surge protector?
There is a need of more info so you can have an idea about what to check and so on!

I also have the same issue!
Came home and my Apple Mini 2011 was dead!
I tested the power cable elsewhere. Mac mini won't start up...
Occasionally turn it off when not in use.
Have a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) protecting the Mini and its components?
Had free access to room temperature air?
Did not hear its fan speed up to noisy levels while doing intense tasks
All sorts of things were connected to the USB ports on the Mini (2x external USB drives and a couple USB cables with nothing attached at other end)
