Hi,

Does anybody know what this small part is (three small smd elements next to fan socket) as on this picture: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/6935960/mini_fan.png

Does anybody have any schematics (eg. any "alternative" solder points)?

Thanks,

Adam

My guess is that the black ones are resistors and the tan are capacitors as most are ceramic. Apple keeps the details private but there are a few companies that specialize in logic board repair.

This is not an easy fix. My advice is to take it to an Apple store and plead ignorance about what is broke. Sometimes they will do a flat rate repair for a reasonable cost.

OK - here's a bit better picture. Can anybody tell me what the element in red circle is (and - if it's a resistor - it's value)? The connector in picture is fan connector.
