  • 13" 2017 MacBook non touch bar shutsdown after a few minutes of use

    Clean machine, no drops, you use it for a couple minutes and the screen goes blank, Mac stays unresponsive but fall still spins, if you shut it down forcefully and start it up it does the same thing, the board gets really hot very fast, I don't even know where to start to measure, any pointers greatly appreciated.

    Make things clear when you search for help.
    ALWAYS start posting exact 820-xxxx code of the board.

    Do 3 (three) PRAM reset as first step.
    Then check for USB activity.
    Use USB OSX pendrive with Link LED for confirmation.

      My bad, board was a 820-00840 and after looking at it closely I realized someone else had already worked on it and it had some terrible work done right under the CPU, at that point when I checked with thermal camera I realized the hottest part was coming from the CPU.
