@hellomacos hey. So I’ve gotten the casing apart and the wires separated. Pretty interesting
These are the important notes so far
The connector to the motherboard I did t expose all the way but from the “tear down” guide. It seems to come apart one more time? Not sure, it’s a small connector that plugs in up and down not in and out
. After further investigation. I see that it does not. Also I discovered that some of the metal I thought was insulation. Was actually a wire. That’s good news lol.
I may need to micro solder the wires back together and re insulate wrap and shrink cover it I don’t see myself throwing any caps on these small wires.
@hellomacos i just realized that’s exactly what you said to do lol!!!
Here is a better photo I actually took it apart more slowly this time. 2 sets of 2 wires are wrapped separately. 1 bundle of wires is wrapped separately. And the more metallic looking wires are exposed.
Here is a photo of the soldering workstation I purchased
I wasn’t able to do a reply and add photo
