Thunderbolt display power source blew up - worth trying to replace?
I plugged the Thunderbolt cable from the Apple Thunderbolt Display into my MacBook the other day, as I have done one thousand times before. There was a huge cracking sound - like a capacitor burned out or similar and the display went dead. Smoke and ozone smell - although no visible smoke. No response since. The MacBook is fine.
The powerboard the display was plugged into is also dead - no response on any outlet. All other devices plugged into the powerboard are OK.
What do you think the chances are that the display circuitry survived? Is it worth spending the money on a new power supply to test if it works?
Or, at least spending the money on the suction caps to tear the display down and visually inspect? Could you even tell from a visual inspection if the silicon got fried?
Thanks for your advice in advance.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
