With a voltometer, should I get tone when touching both the leads?
60W MagSafe Power Adapter - And by leads, I mean the two ends of the wire in the cord that solder into the board inside the adapter case. I think that means the cord is shorted somewhere in-line, no? I have two boxes open, both broken in different ways (prior to opening up) and was hoping to Frankenstein together one working box, but if both cords are bum (one broken somewhere in-line and this one shorted somewhere in-line), then I may just have to buy a new one. (Or try to find the bad spot in the cord, but that's a bit more work than I had intended doing.)
However, knowing the cord is palindromic, would I get a "shorted" tone from touching the leads of the cord? (This is after removing it from the board, so it wouldn't be just because a short in the board.)
