Success! I decide to try a more aggressive cleaning approach before removing the chips and that got the CC board working, passed the Apple Personal Diagnostics tests (for what’s that worth). 
 

I had pretty much surface cleaned, using isopropyl alcohol, before. Today, I switched to using flux remover, tooth brush and dental pick brushes to clean between the chip legs and under the chip in the case of the sound chip, U5, which also looked gunky. The little dental pick brushes worked great, I keep spraying to flush the crud out that I dislodged, mopped it up with cotton swabs, soaked up a lot yellow stuff from under the sound chip, and green from the cuda...

Oh awesome! I’ve just about thrown in the towel on the one I have. Soft power is just no bueno on it. 
 

Are you still considering letting it go to a good home?
