Macbook Air 2015 A1466 Not turning on. – Condensation ingress repair

mend wet mac

This mac had been left overnight multiple times in a row on an old window sill in quite an old house, and in cold weather. This had allowed condensation to build up in the mac, until it killed it. Cleaned up, corrosuion removed, a few caps and resistors replaced solved the most of it, but it still wasn’t powering up as it ought.

Further inspaction took us to the final picture with the large square IC, the big square QFN IC is responsible for power to the Mac. It takes quite the trained eye to see what was not right. Top ‘before’ picture, top right hand corner, can see, barely, but can see the smallest bit of blueish greenish corrosion under the chip. Chip taken off, cleaned up, soldered back on and this Mac is back to being 100% is it ought be, all at a fraction of the cost of Apple.

Macbook Pro A1990 dead, no charge light, no anything. – Liquid damage repair.

water damaged computer

A less than 1 year old Macbook Pro A1990 dead, no charge light, no anything. Upon opening this up and removal of the logic board, it’s been totalled by water, although the owner said absolutley no way has there been a spill! 🤔This was the worst area of a few for this Mac, this is the USB and SSD area, If this isn’t working, there’s no charge, no SSD being seen , oh and no power!

This customer had no backup of their data which was vital. Apple had quoted an obscene amount of money to replace the insides ( never fix) and would 100% loose his data, as that’s what they do. So we fixed this, at a fraction of the cost of Apple by cleaning up the bad areas, and using specialist software we are able to determine the vaues of bad chips, caps, resistors etc, and we can then locate replacements for what’s needed from donor logic boards ( dead ones fro harvesting from ). With all the bad stuff gone and replaced, restored with all of the clients data as it should be.
