It seems the USB port is toasted but only its data circuitry. I have several USB devices that work on the first port (the one next to the thunderbolt) but only power using the second USB port. I opened up the bottom of the laptop and what I saw was some sort of overheated area right where the USB port in question is. That means something must have fried it, but what? All that's been connected to this laptop were usb drives, mice, and iDevices.


I tried SMC/PRAM reset, no change.


Does anyone know of a way to fix this without sending it to Apple?
