MacBook Pro A1278

I have the right boardview and schematics from this site, Pretty sure i have a sensor issue. Could someone share the ASD 3s155 with me so i can run the tests ?? Prefer .rar format. Cheers

Hi Stratos, Battery is ok. charges up to full capacity, according to display. using mac charger and led changes from amber to green. I tried the other you tube fix before posting, It didn't make any difference at all. Hence why i think its a hardware issue. Its a mid 2012 from what i understand

Re: MacBook Pro A1278
A couple of things to check:

see if removing the webcam cable makes any difference - clean/check soldering on connector

check around the SMC for corrosion

remove battery level indicator cable and test

check trackpad cable/connector for corrosion

Re: MacBook Pro A1278

I have a resolution. I found some corrosion on pin 2 of r5054, Replaced r5054 as it was open. also cleaned corrosion around pin 2. Macbook now runs happily. Looks like this goes to a bi line on the CPU_PECI. Cheers for your advice
