Can someone give me a "normal" partnumber for this chip? As far as i see it has full short circuit to ground and i hope it did not pass 10.8v directly to the SSD.
once again - macbook 15 2018 is a piece of shit which sucks water right into the SSD power IC, killing the SSD with zero data...
i have 2 devices with the same problem. had one last month, customer needed to backup his data - so he took the device as soon as he saw apple logo (in urgent cases i allow customer to see the process)
power button does not work, kind of shorted but not. call me dumb, i do not get it.
Everyone knows that IR Camera is a 800$ useless shit which works almost like isopropanol but gives you a luxury feeling of being a short-circuit predator.
Long story short, IR cameras look like shit not only because of a shit sensor, but because they are always unfocused. exactly like Barlow...
Hello everyone. Macbook Pro Touchbar 2018 here.
A little bit of waterdamage, SSD is not recognized anymore. I have no experience with the new models since in Germany almost all Apple customers buying apple care. This one did also, but surprise, he did not use icloud or time machine.
Waterdamage on U7000, traces to R7021, R7022 were corroded away, both burned to megaohm resistance.
After replacing ISL and both resistors i got a fan spin as well as a smell of burned R7021/R7022 resistors. No shorted caps in this circuit, resistance to ground is also OK.
No shorts on...
came with a blown DCIN fuse which is already a joke to see. Also short circuit on mains on the MagSafe board. After Fuse/Charging board replacement i got a fan spin and full choo-choo with a new battery.
On my bench. After full assembly, i put it on outcome desk and plugged in an original...
I bought a dead device on local ebay. Water indicators are all red, it was really sodomized by someone around Q7010 (PPDCIN_G3H_ISOL), D7010 was soldered reverse, C7590 and C7572 were also cracked of the board.
The board autostarts only with battery attached, goes to 0.25A(old battery is...
Hello everyone. This is not an advertisement of any kind. I guess i'm not the only one who looked at the schematics feeling dumb and confused. I always thought, "shit where are people learning this stuff??"
so here we go
example of how...
Black screen, no backlight, no image, TFT matrix switches to all black during boot (light stops coming through the logo when Laptop is on). Works perfectly with external display, does not detect eDP screen and Camera.
PP5VR3V3 = 5v.
I would instantly buy a new Display assembly if only ASD did...
Just wanted to know what do you guys think about it.
Since no one can really replace this chips with the newer one, i am providing my customers something like a "you asked for that shit repair":
2. Liquid metal + MacFanSpeed to always keep GPU under 60°C
3. 1Y free software+hardware...
i found something pretty cheap and interesting on amazon:
is there any chance to skip the form-factor nightmare and just buy...
was fully dead (customer shorted something on the board, he used to power it on with a SMC_ONOFF for a year(!), and suddenly it stopped working),
after replacing u7000(was clearly burned), current sense resistors and boot capacitor. Now I have my g3hot back, but still no charge and no power...
Macbook air 2012 A1465, came with sporadical shutdown problem. After 3-5 minutes of high load, the laptop shuts down and then works 20-30 seconds till shutdown unless cooled for a while. Since CPU/GPU were under 60°C, i checked all voltages and some reset signals, on board and found funny slow...
I am sorry if i'm not the first one to ask this kind of childish question.
is there some kind of dictionary for things like
for example, wtf is FINSTACKSNS_ALERT_L?
maybe i have too much free time if i ask myself, what does PP stands for? Power Point? Power Panda?
or SMC_BC_OK, what does BC...
Charger light works normal without battery. With battery attached it stays green.
SMC Reset changes light like it supposed to.
Energy consumption: 0.04 amps
S5 rail present, SMC_BC_ACOK high
s4 rail is as dead as Steve Jobs.
i do not really...
Sorry for writing it before measuring everything, but during the first-look test laptop booted and i've decided to extract customer's data before proceeding since it started wit the battery disconnected.
i have two days off, so i am reading schematics to figure out what could...
I found a very interesting book recently, but i'm doubting if it is really as good as its excerpts.
This is not an advertisement for any matter, I'm just curious if someone has already bought it and can describe its worth here.
Hello everyone, hello Louis
i started to work in a local repair shop and i'm trying to learn rocket science board repair
2012 Macbook air a1466
