The March 2015 update of Apple's 13" MacBook Air features fifth generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, resulting in slightly increased performance and battery life.

Location of power pads

Macbook air with liquid damage, did a board cleaning and device powered back on. Now a couple month later it doesn't power up.

While trying to reset smc I notice there are no change to the charger indicator light. I suspect the power button has failed. I'm looking to jumpstart the macbook air to validate that, and if so, change the keyboard assembly.

I know Macboks usually have a couple power pads that can be bridged to power it up.

Does anyone know where they are?

thanks

Hi!

I have the same problem. I have now located the "debug power button". But does not work to press on them. How do you do it? And why did you put a red circle around the black thing?

knutegil11 the red circle is from another guide where this image comes from. disregard it. you will need a flat head screwdriver or a paperclip to "bridge" the two contacts in the blue circle. If that does not work, then you are having plenty of other issues with your board.

Ok, then I guess my Mac is broken for sure... Thank you for answering :)

Before you get rid of it, track another ultrasonic cleaning with some Branson ec.

@gigabit87898 why? knutegil11 did not mention anything about water damage or any other damage.
