A1534 Macbook, dead not charging correctly. Repaired.

macbook not charging

Apple had quoted our customer as ever, an astronomical amount of money as they said it needed a new logic board. Upon plugging this in, it indeed would not turn on. Using a USB-C multimeter it showed the Mac was taking 5 volts, not 20 Volts needed to turn it on, or to charge correctly. Upon opening this up, apart from the battery being bad we found water damage on the only singe USB-C port it has. On cleaning up the port, there’s a ‘hole’ burned right through it beneath the gold pin.

We put in a replacement USB-C port (not entire logic board) a new OEM battery, and this guys is again taking 20 volts, booting and charging again as it ought, all at a fraction of the cost at Apple, and without needlessly losing all your data. Don’t delay, send yours in today !

Macbook pro with dedicated graphics card failure – Fixed

macbook graphics problem

This 2011 15 inch i7 8GB Macbook pro came in with the booting to a white/grey screen and nothing else. There are idiots out there that will bodge this repair by simply reflowing the graphics chip. Reflowing means heating up the many solder balls on the underside of the chip so that the reflow back into full contact with the chip and board. This isn’t a fix, may last a month, but that’s it.

Here at Mycomputerworks we go for a forever fix. These macs also have an integrated graphics card, so by removing a resistor we turn the already non functional GPU ( graphics chip ) off, forever. We then solder into place a pcb over a certain rom chip to re route signals direct to the integrated graphics ( which never fails on these!) by running jumper wires from our newly added PCB to where they need to go.

The green shiny stuff is conformal coating add on after to ensure nothing shorts… And boom! a fully fuctional Mac at the fraction of the cost of Apple, or having to buy another. Not local ? Don’t delay, get in touch and send yours in today !

27′ iMac 2009 model hard drive failure.

This still very capable 2009 27″ iMac i7 with 16GB Ram was brought in with the no entry sign showing which means dead hard drive essentially.

We upgraded to a 500GB Solid State Drive and using a patcher installed OS Mojave to give this beast of a mac a good few more years yet. This iMac now boots in just over 20 seconds to desktop. Apple say no, Apple say it’s Antique. We give all Mac’s equal love here !
