Trackpad chip scorching hot
So milk was spilled on this Macbook Air and I powered off the computer instantly. After waiting a week or so, I started it again and it booted up with no problem. However, the trackpad and the keyboard are not working.
I opened the laptop, cleaned off the oxidation with a toothbrush and isopropyl alcohol - trackpad and keyboard still did not work.
Suspected damaged upper case cable and bought this - the error prevailed.
Today, once starting the look around, I noticed that a chip on the trackpad PCB was so hot that I actually got a burn when touching it. It becomes so hot so fast after powering up its insane. I’m talking about this component:
Any suggestions why this is, if this is causing the faulty trackpad and keyboard and what can be done? Would a replacement of the trackpad do the trick?
Esta é uma boa pergunta?
