Power Button not Woking even after keyboard and flex cable replacement


I have a MacBook Air 2013 11’’ motherboard number 820-3435.

The power button is not working (its the only key in the keyboard that is not working) even after keyboard, touchpad and touchpad/keyboard flex cable replacements, which leaves me with a bad motherboard.

The question is, where to start? The schematics says pin 20 in the keyboard connector is has the line SMC_ONOFF_L, that then goes to resistor R5116. The thing is, i dont see a resistor there, only the turn on pads, and measuring continuity from pin 20 to the pads gives me nothing.

What steps did you take to confirm the power button isn't working? Is the machine able to power on if you disconnect the battery, reconnect the battery, then connect a power adapter? Do you see any change in the charger LED when you perform an SMC reset?


Yes, the machine powers on when i disconnect the battery and connect the power adapter, and when i contact the power on pads on the motherboard
