"Some symtoms of a dead logic board are as follows:

No chime

Fan activity

Drives spinning up

nothing displayed on the screen

no power throught USB (or the otherway around)

No Power Through firewire (or the otherway around)

abnormal noises

fans running at max speed

computer heating up abnormally

display image distortion (prior to fail)"

Simple: Remove the Memory modules and if the unit does not give error beeps or flashing LED light, and the LED light remains stagnent you have a Logic Board Issue

Most likely with these macs its bad capacitors. When you remove the back you will see a lot of swollen caps. they sell the repair kit on ebay if you dont mind changing each and every bad cap.

"So if my MBP isn't showing any response when I hit the power button... no light, no fan, no optical drive activity, no HDD activity, no screen activity, no chime...

What might this be? Doesn't matter what the power source is, same response with battery and AC. I thought it was a bad logic board, but this makes me hope otherwise."

"I have the same problem .

I was listening music and my Imac should down.

I try to turn it on but the computer should down after the apple symbol. After that no more turn on.

I opened and I notice the fans don't work, no video , no sound.

it have 4 led to indicate if everything is ok. all this led are good. Also I can hear the cd player working when I put some cd inside it.

What should I do?"
