Mijn probleem

My computer was damaged from a spill (liquid damage), it worked with quirks for a while then eventually stopped charging, didn't recognize the power adapter, then died. Apple care don't give a F about liquid damage, so I investigated and found solution on this website. I however required BOTH a new dc-in connector and a new battery.

Mijn oplossing

I did make a mistake which led me to re-purchase the part and re-install. If I would have read the comments CAREFULLY I wouldn't have made this error, which could be explained better in the tutorial.

The cord from the dc-in connector needs to be run behind the post which exists on the border of the logic board and the edge of the computer (which is around where the microphone goes). I failed to run it behind the post and it was cut up by the screw which holds the back on the computer. I should have known known by the resistance felt while screwing in that specific screw.

After I've gotten life back in my computer, I do still have a problem in that this macbook is not recognizing the power and is not charging. The battery is neither charging or loosing charge.

Mijn advies

Be sure to not to ruin that cord!
