    A1466 Trackpad

    Hiya, hopefully this is the right section. I am just wondering what peoples experiences with the A1466 trackpad are? Is there a known failure rate with them? Got a customer who brought one in, works fine on the login screen, as soon as you login and reach the desktop the trackpad becomes erratic...

    820-00165 fan spin but no boot

    Turns out there is usb activity. Tried 2 different mouse's on it and they both light up Still a chance the cpu is dead or is that a good sign there's still life?

    820-00165 fan spin but no boot

    Looks like your right, done some more testing tonight, tested all the inputs to the CPU, all measuring fine but still no post Weird thing is I get usb activity, should you still get usb power if CPU is dead?

    820-00165 fan spin but no boot

    replaced the bios chip, still no sign of booting, I still get fan spin but it no longer ramps up to 100% like it was doing before, voltages are all still the same as before

    820-00165 fan spin but no boot

    Tested all the termination resistors and the traces, all appear to be good Where would be best to source a new bios? I don't have a donor board to get one off, am I better buying a pre-programmed one or are programmers worth investing in?

    820-00165 fan spin but no boot

    Got a 820-00165 has green light, fan spins for 10 seconds, goes off, comes back on and ramps up to full speed. No chime present All rails seem to be present, no water damage to board and no corrosion as far as I can see. Only odd thing I can see is Q3080* looks burned? PPBUS_G3H is sitting at...

    A1226 / A1260 GPU worth repairing?

    Was thinking of fixing them more for the practice on some older hardware before attempting more expensive stuff, I can pick up the complete machines for $20 each since he was going to be trashing them anyway. Could probably re-sell them for a bit more than that if I get them working Not a lot...

I have managed to get my hands on 2 Macbook Pro's 1x A1226 and 1x A1260, I have not...
