Can you test the USB-C port w/ multimeter on seemingly dead MacBook?
Is it possible to use a multimeter to determine if the USB-C port is dead before taking the laptop apart? If you open it up, how can you test to see if its the defective part before replacing it?
I appreciate all the responses but I think we're getting a bit off topic :) My original question was "Is there anyway to test the USB-C port w/ a multimeter to know if it's bad?" If I determine it's bad, clearly I'd order one to replace it.
So interesting discovery, when plugged into USB-C, the white battery light on the logic board comes on. I *think* this is a pretty good indication the USB-C port is ok but since it the laptop still doesn't power on, does that mean the logic board is bad even though the white light on the logic board illuminates?
Also, I don't hear a chime but it must be powering on to some extent because the trackpad is clicking which doesn't happen when the power is off. I can hold the button for 10s which would be the power shutting off and the trackpad doesn't click but then pushing the button to turn on (again no chime) but the trackpad does click.
