I got this liquid damaged 820-3437.
History is minor liquid spill around U5110. Was not starting. After UC starts when plugin in power supply.
Now when I push pwr on keyboard it immediately resets smc (charger goes green and machine reboots). Also as soon as I put the test-probe on SMC_RESET_L...
The 2015-model has MLB#820-00045 as Therealkilometers say
The 2016-model has MLB#820-00244 and is a bit different.
I haven't found the schematics and brd for the 2016 and I am missing some information on some components on this particular model. So if you happen to have the 2016-model in hand...
No I didn't fix it yet. I put it in the to-do pile and wanted to get back to this with fresh eyes some day. But it is still lying there :-)
I suspect mine has several issues because of the inconsistency in power and the weird chime-thing. The SPI was for sure corrupted because when I read the...
I also had this problem. Installed with Bootcamp instead.
It does not support virtual machine:

I got this MacBook Pro 15 late 2013 with integrated graphics only
Was a lot dust inside but apart from that board is looking very clean. I cleaned all dust away. No liquid or corrosion or anything like that.
The problem is that it shuts down intermittently. Sometimes after 5 minutes usage...
no they are not
2012 and early 2013 (a1425) are interchangeable
late 2013 and 2014 (a1502) are interchangeable
none of them can be used in the 2015
2012 - 2014 LCD-panel are interchangeable - for complete display only 2012/early2013 and late2013/2014 are interchangeable as...
Thanks Duke for pointing me in the direction of measuring diode mode on C9704 with R9704 removed. It showed up that I had a microscopic OL around the probe point for C9704. I couldn't even see it in the microscope on highest zoom setting. But the multimeter saw it :) Made a trace and brightness...
This one came in with severe water damage. After ultrasonic cleaning and fixing CPU VCORE power issue it started up with no backlight. I knew it would because it had a lot of corrosion around backlight circuitry. I changed all corroded resistors and caps around LP8550 and also the LP8850 itself...
Battery was not saying replace and did not fail on "D-diagnostics". I gave the computer back to customer. He needed it urgently so he must live with holding the power button for now. We'll see if it comes back :D
I have this MacBook Pro 13-inch 2015 which came in with dead trackpad and dead keyboard. After switching trackpad cable the keyboard and trackpad came to life.
But the issue is now that it won't turn on by normal press on power button while on battery power. I need to keep the power...
Ok. Thanks anyways. I also got one here but it is last years model (820-00045) and unfortunately looks different from newest model :-(
Question still open if somebody else should happen to have one of these lying around...
I got a liquid spilled MacBook 12 inch retina newest model. The board is 820-00244 but I cannot find schematics and board view for it anywhere online.
It is missing three components which were totally burned. It had a lot of "pigeon poo" looking stuff around the whole area marked with...
It's hard to hear where the sound precisely is coming from just by sticking your ear to the board. I sometimes make a paper cone with a little hole in the one end and use it as a sound funnel while moving around on top of the board. Very simple but it helps me to identify the culprit.
