Macbook Pro 2015 13″ sent into us dead – Liquid damage repair.

computer repir horsham

Macbook Pro 2015 13″ sent into us dead. Another nice straight forward one. On testing the power rails, everything was there, just a huge short somewhere pulling it down preventing it turning on. Inspecting the logic board it was spotted almost right away. A big glob of something sticky and mess accross the keyboard back light connector.

Having removed the foul connector and cleared this area up the short was eliminated, and the Mac now booting just fine albeit no keyboard back light. Although it’s easy enough to put in a replacement back light ( that flex conector is toast! )

It’s very time consuming as everything has to come out of the Mac, including the glued in battery. We offered the customer the option who declined, thus keeping this a very economical fix at a fracftion of the cost of Apple. Why delay?

Macbook Pro 15″ 2015 dead from a large water spill, repaired.

computer repair near me

Dead 15″ 2015 Macbook pro killed by a large water spill. This thing was sopping wet when it arrived. After quite some cleaning to remove the corrosion many bad ( oxidised ) capacitors and resistors needed replacing, some power was restored.

Looking closer at the ISL chip which controls power and charge, the smallest bit of corrosion was found along with goo beneath the chip ( circled in blue) , so flipped and replaced it. Cleared out further bits of corrosion in connectors, popped into the ultrasonic bath to remove any non visible water and corrosion benath chips etc.

All voltages now testing 100% as they should on all power lines, popped back together and Boom! Perfectly functioning Macbook Pro at a fraction of the cost of Apple, who quoted over £1200 to replace the logic board. Madness.

HP laptop dead after fruit juice spill/

laptop not turning on

HP laptop, very erratic behaviour and screen doing weird things, keyboard not working, laptop not charging. When asked if there had been a spill – “No chance, no way. Impossible.”. Hmmm, okay.On inspection something wet in there and sticky. Smells like fruit juice. Can even feel it in the keyboard.

Advised our customer and sent pictures, ” But my son swore blind nothing had happend !” – These things happen !

Cleaned all the corrosion off, replaced some capacitors and a resistor, cleaned they keyboard connector, and everyone is back at the party, at a fraction of the price of buying a new laptop.

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.

no usb

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 !

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.

😁
