A customer came in report that his Macbook Air Model : A1466 cannot be turn on.


We opened to have a look and found out small area water damaged. The copper testing point was damaged because the water dropped in and rusted. the copper testing point peel off. That why the the voltage cannot load into the IC clip. 


We have to do the micro soldering and solder the copper wire from the capacitor to the IC. We solder the copper wire from under PCB surface and soldering on the surface of the PCB.
