Very new to these boards and new to repairing Apple products. I have scanned your whole answers forum...love what you have done, good job! Anyway, I picked up a macbook penryn model from a buddy that wanted it repaired and took it apart. The logic board definitely had some water spilled on it (no idea how long ago). Plenty of oxidation and electrolysis on the board. I am going to get a soft tooth brush and q-tips with isopropyl alcohol and see how far that takes me.
If that doesn't work, I will have to replace the board. The model number on the board is the 820-2279. My question is, do I have to get the 2.4 GHZ logic board again? That is what he had. Can I downgrade to a different board? (I am trying to spend the least money on a new board.)
Any help or links to ebay auctions would be awesome. Also, if you have any suggestions on how to bring the computer back to life; let me know!
P.S. - All of the oxidation and electrolysis is on the bottom left of the board, right where you connect the batter power. Thought I would let you know in case you had any ideas.
Thanks in advance.
