iMac booting but dead / black screen.

mac repair horsham

Apple – ehem, cough ‘Genius’ bar fail & independant repair shop fail. iMac booting but dead screen. Apple quoted around £1000 for logic board replacement, independant shop quoted £550 for a replacement screen to be fitted. As ever when customer first called and asked for a quote – Was told can not quote for what it may not be. Can only quote once have seen the machine and positivley identified the issue. In this case it was just a blown fuse that needed replacing on the logic board. Try £260 rather than nonsence money for the incorrecct fix. 👍💪✊

15′ 2013 Macbook Pro A1398 black screen – No image

A1398 Macbook Pro black screen – No image. Many mistake this as graphic card/chip failure, which it’s not! Some idiot will then reflow the graphics chip, which it didn’t need but in doing so it heats the voltage core chip enough , and just enough to reflow the solder on it back into full contact. This only lasts a few months. What we have done here is to resolder the vcore chip with nice new clean solder, we then reflow the circuit area around the vcore to ensure everything is in its place and won’t fail. Note the before picture the grey ball like solder blobs around the vcore chip, then after – whilst it was being reflowed, even through the flux its clear how much brighter the soldering is around the chip. And voila – We have a picture 💪✊🙌

Liquid damaged Macbook Air A1466 Dead, no power.

Macbook Air A1466 Dead, no power no image no charge light. Apple had quoted customer for an entire logic board replacement at stupid £££. As we know, Apple NEVER repair anything, just swap out the entire inside at great cost to YOU and the environment ! Where here we fix it. These two corroded areas were responsible, corrosion removed, 2 capacitors replaced with one needing to be re-routed as the pads they are soldered to were toast ( the red areas ) – This area is responsible for allowing the Mac to power up. Secondly SPI MUX needed the track from resistor to MUX replacing at was burnt out also. This was achieved by running a small wire in its place, then coating it in conformal paint to insulate it. And there we have it, Macbook Air back to the client at a 1/4 of Apple’s quote. 💪✊🙌

Upgrade that old Hard Drive in your Mac to Solid State Dive technology

Here’s a litle video we made on why you should upgrade that old Hard Drive in your Mac to Solid State Dive technology. It’s the best bang for buck performance upgrade possible for your Mac. The iMac in this video is a 21.5 2012 slimline A1418. Boot up time before, and after the upgrade. Bootup time has been considerably cut in the before part of the video, can’t have 2 minutes of almost nothing! 😂

Dead SSD data recovery

Dead Macbook Air from a massive tea spill, too bad to revive, but data was a must to recover from a destroyed Flash Solid State Drive. We took the parts needed from a similar Samsung flash drive to replace the wrecked areas, popped it into the ultrasonic, and voila – 251GB Mackintosh HDD with all data restored and copied to another drive. 👌 #data #recovery #SSD #professional #open #righttorepair #apple #mac #macbook #dead #liquid #water #damage #repair #nearme #horsham #sussex #upgrade #vintage #service #local #fast #logicboard #fix #screen #replacement #lost #password #EFI #lock https://www.mycomputerworks.co.uk/ https://macrehab.co.uk/

2010 15″ A1289 Macbook Pro booting to a black / dead screen

Ahh, it’s graphics (GPU) failure! reflow the graphics chip and all will be well they say…. No. No no no NO! This is not the issue, though reflowing the GPU will sometimes TEMPORARILY fix the issue. Why ? It’s not the GPU at fault here, and never has been on these otherwise great machines. It’s the fault of a bad capacitor in the circuitry leading to the GPU. Reflowing the GPU will also heat this capacitor which will temporarily get it working again. As this capacitor (C9560) fails the mac will experience Kernel panics and eventualy a short to ground and thus no screen image!

To replace the capacitor with a new one the same is pointless as thtat will blow in time too. Why ? Its values are too low for the power required and it’s made of the wrong materials for the tolerance required. So we replace it with a 330uf capacitor, which in itself is a larger chip. We have to scrape away at the pad enlarging the pad in order to solder it on to work correctly.

Tea killed my Macbook.

Repair of a liquid damage Macbook Pro

Another dead Macbook pro, deader than dead McDead from dead farm having had a mug of tea through it. Though being a 2012 15″ i7 16GB machine with the dual graphics, its still a highly desirable and worthy machine, rare as hens teeth to buy, naturally customer wanted it fixed. Identified 2 shorts to ground, rerouted those and replaced 2 resistors- still no power. Nothing, no heat from anything. A bit more investigating and it seems the Platform Controller Hub (PCH) microchip is knackerd, swapped that out and we have power. Yay! But no screen. Bums. All the video related power rails checked and present, which lead me to LP8550, which is the backlight driver chip for the screen. No backlight, no picture. Just examining this little micro chip visualy was enough. If it looks like crap, it is crap. tested with multimeter nothing coming from pin 14 – which is …. backlight power to screen. chip removed and flipped over, can clearly see where a bit of tea got under it and shorted it out ( the greenish and grey bits ). New LP8550 , flipped to show what it should look like. Chip put back onto the board, board back into the Mac and boom. Working 100% as it was the day it was new, and at a fraction of the cost from Apple 🥳 #open #righttorepair #apple #mac #macbook #liquid #water #damage #repair #nearme #horsham #sussex #upgrade #service #local #fast #logicboard #tea mycomputerworks.co.ukmacrehab.co.uk

Liquid damage repair - 2016 Macbook Pro 13" A1706 mug of tea knocked over it

macbook repair

2016 Macbook Pro 13″ A1706 mug of tea knocked over next to it spilling across the keyboard resulting in sudden death. Testing revealed No power, no charge, no green light, no screen. no keyboard. Nothing. After putting the logic board through the cleaner to remove corrosion and debris, still nothing. Suspect U7100 which is responsible for pretty much everything including main power rail G3Hot and charge sense, along with a whole bunch of other things that you’re not really interested in, are you?

U7100 removed.....

liquid damage mac horsham

U7100 replaced...

Having replaced U7100 and a few burned caps, we have power, we have post, we have a booting machine . Still no charge, closer inspection the battery and one new battery later and we have charge sense. As seen in the photo’s First the Mac accepts 5v charge, if it’s happy and all is present it allows 9v , and again, if all is well and all is present, it boost’s to the full 20v to bring system power.

And we have no screen. I suspect that will be U8400 , the chip responsible for the LED backlight getting a boost from 12v to 50v. Now you don’t see it. Now you do ! U8400 replaced and we have a picture again, reseating and cleaning of keyboard connector and its back. Another restored to 100% working order at a fraction of what Apple charge to replace, and never repair.

What did they do to you? What did they do to this poor little macbook ? This Macbook came into us in quite a sad state, stone dead. first thing to do is open it up and remove the logic board to inspect for damage. It didn’t take long with this mac.

Eeuuww !
Yukk! The horrors!

With the logic board inspected, and as much dirt and corrosion cleaned off as is possible, time to remove further corrosion , and any liquid left behind under chips etc with the amazing Powersonic P1200D Ultrasonic cleaner.

Now that the Macbook’s logic board has been dried correctly, it looks brand new again !

looking at the schematics for this particular Macbook Pro, looking at where the problem areas are likley to be.

Right to repair

Would you buy a car where you were not allowed to change the tyres yourself?

Or would you buy a bike where you are not allowed to put the chain back on yourself ? #Apple are trying to make it impossible for you and independant repair outfits like us to #repair your own devices. This isn’t good for the consumers who have purchased Macbook Pro’s and Air’s which are models 2015 until present. Why ? They all have inherant design flaws, from Macbook screen cables that fail after you’ve opened / closed the Mac 50-60 times. Or the bad chips being used in 2017 onward models that will fail in a short space of time. according to Apple, that’s YOUR fault as you are using it wrong ! They will charge you the cost of replacing the entire logic board, or screen from between £800 -£1200 , where repair shops like us will repair the baord by replacing the bad chip, or whatever has failed, all at a fraction of the cost of an Apple ‘ehem’ repair. Liquid damage ? No problem. Dead ‘fried’ mac ? No problem. get in touch with us today 01403 586016 http://mac-rehab.co.uk https://mycomputerworks.co.uk #righttorepair #mac #macbook #local
