2016 Macbook Pro 13″ A1706 mug of tea knocked over next to it spilling across the keyboard resulting in sudden death. Testing revealed No power, no charge, no green light, no screen. no keyboard. Nothing. After putting the logic board through the cleaner to remove corrosion and debris, still nothing. Suspect U7100 which is responsible for pretty much everything including main power rail G3Hot and charge sense, along with a whole bunch of other things that you’re not really interested in, are you?
Having replaced U7100 and a few burned caps, we have power, we have post, we have a booting machine . Still no charge, closer inspection the battery and one new battery later and we have charge sense. As seen in the photo’s First the Mac accepts 5v charge, if it’s happy and all is present it allows 9v , and again, if all is well and all is present, it boost’s to the full 20v to bring system power.
And we have no screen. I suspect that will be U8400 , the chip responsible for the LED backlight getting a boost from 12v to 50v. Now you don’t see it. Now you do ! U8400 replaced and we have a picture again, reseating and cleaning of keyboard connector and its back. Another restored to 100% working order at a fraction of what Apple charge to replace, and never repair.
