MacBook Pro 2012/13 Blade Ssd Sandisk SD5SL2 512Gb - Faulty
Couldn’t find any better category to describe it, hope description will suffice. It’s an SSD I got some time back with a Macbook Pro I bought for parts I needed, seller was clear enough to state it might have been faulty, and that’s what it seems to be indeed. Since it’s an Ssd installed for quite a short time on Macs, I just have one machine to test it. However, I also have an adapter 7+17 (8+18) pins to SATA 2,5” if needed. It seems the drive can’t be seen or recognized either way. I have no idea if schematics for such drives can be found somewhere around and if it makes sense at all to try a repair, but since it’s a 512Gb drive it would be worth the try. I’ve done some basic testing with multimeter and I can see two voltages, 1.8v and 3,3v on random caps, the SSD mildly heats up as if it was working without any major shorts..under the microscope everything looks clean and shiny. One of the two coils shows a 1,05v. Has anyone ever succeeded or attempted an SSD hardware repair and can provide some insight ? I enclose a couple of pics for reference.
