Bought a Mid 2009 MBP off craigslist. Help me fix it!
I often browse online selling platforms for damaged computers to repair. I’m usually a pc guy but I’ve always wanted to get into the Mac world!
Found a MacBook for $60! With “just a damaged glass screen”. So I met the guy made sure no one was logged into it and it was clean. Just busted glass which I ordered on amazon. Well.. I get it home and to my surprise start realizing that the WiFi, Bluetooth and USB ports are all not working. There’s a “usb disabled draws to much power” thing. And there isn’t even a WiFi option in network preferences.
I’m assuming the WiFi/Bluetooth was damaged when it was dropped. Are there things I could do to resurrect this?
It’s no big deal.. I just hate walking away from any machine.
Oh also I keep trying the smc reset and it just turns on instead of the charger changing colors
Well.. let’s talk!!
