    820-00840 no ppbus_g3h stuck on 5v liquid damage

    couldnt find any out of the ordinary resistor reading as in no bad pull-up resistors at U2800 the lower right resistors are affected by liquid damage: R3097 R3094 R2829, replacing those right now

    820-00840 no ppbus_g3h stuck on 5v liquid damage

    U2890 does look quite dirty. Cleaned with alcohol and did a reflow, but the diode number dont seem to change much from earlier. These are CD3215s from the same IC strip. bad solder could be the culprit, would you advice to put on 2 new CD3215s or first rule out other problems? Maybe when...

    820-00840 no ppbus_g3h stuck on 5v liquid damage

    PP1V1_UPC_XA_LDO_BMC = 530 PP1V8_UPC_XA_LDOD = 490 PP1V8_UPC_XA_LDOA = 550 PP3V3_UPC_XA_LDO = 530 PP1V1_UPC_XB_LDO_BMC = 570 PP1V8_UPC_XB_LDOD = 520 PP1V8_UPC_XB_LDOA = 570 PP3V3_UPC_XB_LDO = 550 now I payed attention to my probes :)

    820-00840 no ppbus_g3h stuck on 5v liquid damage

    diode mode fixed measured PP3v3_G3H at R3001 and it's there you mentioned the 3V3 rail should start with input 5V is that correct? I see alot of bidirectional datalines on the CD3215's, what output line(s) can I check to know it's working to a large extent? which are the last ones to come on...

    820-00840 no ppbus_g3h stuck on 5v liquid damage

    Jep found em! PP1V1_UPC_XA_LDO_BMC = 0V (diode mode 540) PP1V8_UPC_XA_LDOD = 1.77V PP1V8_UPC_XA_LDOA = 1.80V PP3V3_UPC_XA_LDO = 3.35V PP1V1_UPC_XB_LDO_BMC = 0V (diode mode OL) PP1V8_UPC_XB_LDOD = 1.78V PP1V8_UPC_XB_LDOA = 1.80V PP3V3_UPC_XB_LDO = 3.35V

    4 outputs of L3200 1 - 645 2 - 645 3 - 1507 4 - 1507 couldnt find another LDO connected to the other CD3215, not experienced with these boards Im sorry

    820-00840 no ppbus_g3h stuck on 5v liquid damage

    A A1706 came in with liquid damage, alot of it. Tried cleaning the CD3215 and ISL but no luck. Removed both CD3215s after seeing brown/black goo coming from underneath it, but after replacing still no luck. Have not worked with USB-C macbooks before so one thing is not completely clear. Is it...

    Macbook Pro A1278 white screen after loading bar

    As the title says, I have received an old macbook which displays a white screen after loading bar. I have already tried: -disconnected everything apart from DC-IN and display -PRAM, VRAM, SMC reset -reinstall macos -boot from external drive but to no avail. Is it the graphics chip which...

    820 2915 no backlight

    Happened on its own. But I can see from the partially yellowish tin that the board itself is refurbished. Also the GPU has been disabled. The costumer changed his mind and does not want to continue the repair. Thanks for the help, at least learned another thing about the PWM :)

    820 2915 no backlight

    Hi, I have a no backlight 8202915 in front of me with 24.7V on the LCD backlight rails. I assume this is a voltage which should make the backlight turn on. The PWM rail to the backlight driver has 2.3V which is maybe low? I have too little experience to tell. Backlight driver faulty which makes...

    820 00165 fan spins for 1 second then turns off, taking 25mA not entering S4 state

    Have not tried it after removing the resistor. Before removing the resistor it gave no issues

    820 00165 fan spins for 1 second then turns off, taking 25mA not entering S4 state

    after removing R1921 is gives 0.05V, something to worry about? its not low as in 0 but also not 0.9 or 3.3

    820 00165 fan spins for 1 second then turns off, taking 25mA not entering S4 state

    Since USB and SSD are both equally slow, is it possible that the SMC is the culprit here?

    820 00165 fan spins for 1 second then turns off, taking 25mA not entering S4 state

    Closing the lid still makes it shutdown. Powering on takes one normal press till the fan stops spinning, then one long ~5second press until the chime comes and the backlight turns on. I can only release the power key after the backlight turns on, releasing on chime makes it shutdown again.
