  • 820-4924 No Green Light

    This is my first board that I'm trying to repair. I have listed the different measurements below but I don't know where to check now. The charger light is green for a few seconds then turns orange (I don't know if this matters). I do not have a fan spin when I plug in the board to the charger. Also, do these boards automatically power on when connected to a charger or do I need to short two pins to get it to start?

    When I plug in a USB mouse and plug the board into the magsafe, I the USB mouse does not light up.
    PPBUS_G3H 12.54 V
    U7001 Pin 1 and 2 3.39V
    U7001 Pin 4 3.43V
    U7001 Pin 5 3.43V
    U7001 Pin 3 0V
    U7000 Pin 1 3.4
    U7000 Pin 2 0
    U7000 Pin 3 0
    U7000 Pin 4 3.4V
    U7000 Pin 5 3.4V
    This is a water damaged board with water damage near the lcd connector, keyboard connector, r1830, u8330, u1900, and q5158.

    I have not put the board through the ultrasonic yet just in case I missed an area with corrosion.

    Lastly, I am missing U8310 and I'm waiting on a shipment from mouser to replace it.

    Voltage on L7560 and L7520. L7520 may be pulsing check carefully best is with a scope, multimeter is too slow to catch the spike.

      L7560 3.338V
      L7520 ranges between 5.141 and 5.145V on my meter.

      I do not have access to a scope at the moment.

            That means all power is ok. At this point I would clean the board and see if the mouse will light up.

              After cleaning, I'm still getting an orange light.

                The light in magsafe is supposed to be orange.

                  From what I understand, an orange light means the onewire circuit is not working correctly. If a battery is not connected, I should be getting a green light.

                    Green then orange is NORMAL even without a battery connected.
