Early 2011 A1286 won't start or charge. No charge led either

New to the forum and looking for advice troubleshooting my machine.
It is the MC723LL/A model of A1286
It has had the logic board replaced twice using the free program they set up for the known issue.
However last week it decided to not turn on or charge.
Replaced battery and charger with no luck.
Not even the led will show on charger.
Have removed logic board and took so photographs and looking for any advice on what I should be looking for to find and fix the issue.
Any help appreciated

I have this MBP model too. It did not qualify for the recall - according to the genius at apple. Now it has a green and red vertical line going through the screen. Anyway, it still runs and after I found out the replacement logic boards were refurbished and sometimes created more problems than they solved, I was kinda glad I did not "qualify."
That said - it sounds like it could be the MagSafe DC-in board?? Check out ifixit for your model: https://www.ifixit.com/Device/MacBoo...ody_Early_2011
Also check out this link in Macrumors. It sounds very similar to your issues and they have some suggestions you can try.
Post back to let us know what you find out.
