Why does my device begin to boot then shut down?

I found an old Macbook Unibody A1342 in my basement and I’ve been trying to get it working. I’ve tried booting from a flashdrive but had the same problem. I don’t think it’s the display because I hear the fans stopping and there’s no OS sound. My device also does not charge to 100%, which led me to thinking it was the battery, but I can’t boot by just unhooking the battery and plugging in the charger.

In my experience most A1342 with issues have had some spill on keyboard which on that machine sits in a tray like plastic seal cover. I would try disconnecting the keyboard and try to start off jumper pads to start with.

Thanks, I'll try that!

Update: It might not work. The person who used to own it said that it just fallen off their bed and stopped working, but I'll try.

Which connector is for the keyboard? I tried one that looked like it ran under but not too the battery, same result.

I've never repaired a macbook before :P

It booted up like that but turns off as soon as I remove my GPIO wire (I assume that's normal). It's hard to hold the wires long enough to see if it will keep working, though.
