    820-00045 won't power on.

    This 820-00045 won't power on. Under the microscope, I confirmed no liquid/physical damage. This unit died on its own. Under further inspection, I found a short on PPVCC_S0_CPU. When I inject 1V to this shorted line the PCH on the CPU heats up. So I know that the CPU/PCH BGA processor needs to...

    820-3478 external monitor does not work.

    This 820-3478 Logic Board I have will not display to an external monitor. After further inspection of the Logic Board under the microscope I noticed U3015 to have a dark spot, it looked burnt. I went ahead and desoldered U3015, I also desoldered U3020. When I test each pad under those chips...

    I'm ready, thanks for the luck. Which should I do first? CPU or RAM? Which do you "think" it is?

    Also, thanks for the opinion of Dukefawks, I agree however in my opinion all Apple Logic Boards are garbage.

    820-00840 Issues. Where to start?

    I did try another SSD, that's not it. When it wants to turn on it will boot to an external USB drive with Mac OS loaded, it will also boot to a known good internal SSD, it will also boot to the original SSD, when I test the original SSD in another perfect Mac of the same model the SSD tests...

    820-00840 Issues. Where to start?

    Logic Board won't boot sometimes. When it does and I get it into OS, this is what I get. *** MCA Error Report *** CPU Machine Check Architecture Error Dump (CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7360U CPU @ 2.30GHz, CPUID: 0x806E9) Core: 0 IA32_MC3_STATUS=0xFE00000000800400 IA32_MC3_CTL=0x0...

    820-00239 5V Issue

    How do I remove the underfill on UB300? **UB300 is getting hot and I am sure it needs to be replaced in order for this board to shoot back to 20V. Any advice on the underfill would be much appreciated.

    A1707 BIN Needs ME Cleared

    With your file, the system turns on, fans spin but nothing else. With your file, the CPU/GPU/PCH stays cold. With my original file, all those turn on.

    820-4924 graphic issues?

    I'm not sure where to start with this one. No liquid damage, and it is very clean. The issue is when it boots to OS the screen gets distorted but shows fine during boot up. If I plug in an external monitor the external monitor displays fine and also makes the internal display fine. Once the...
