I am in trouble.
Can anyone help me?
I am replacing the capacitors in this Apple iigs power supply:
Astec model AA13581 Apple part number 699-0126.
Some of the capacitors in this power supply are extremely hard to remove because there is a ton of glue on top and around them.
In removing one of them, I stretched the wires a little bit in component L7.
I don't know what this thing is because I cannot identify the symbol under it.
I don't know how to test it.
I don't know if this thing has a polarity.
Because of that I don't know how to put it back in.
I am afraid that if this thing is polarized and I install it incorrectly, I might mess up the power supply.
I will attach an image of the symbol of this component so that maybe one of you can identify it.
Okay, in removing this component from my other power supply, I found the same symbol inside a different component that I know for certain is an inductor.
What I don't know is why Apple used this symbol to designate an inductor?
Is it a special inductor or some arbitrary choice on the part of Apple?
