Honestly lets just make this short:
Is there anything you can do when the spacebar keeps having double or even tripple keystrokes that does not involve replacing the whole keyboard?
Replacing the keyboards on this is so awful that I might rather just give the customer a refund then actually...
Hey everyone. I have a Macbook Pro Mid 2016, 13" here (non-touchbar) with a tripping keyboard backlight after top case replacement.
The top case was replaced after water damaged the keyboard and all the components such as the battery and trackpad were safely moved over to the new top case...
A1104 (Vinage Powerbook G4 12") - Keyboard interchangeable between 15/17' models?
Before you laugh; I just want to bring this device back to its old glory because I loved the design. Its a hobby project and not for my business, but this felt like the most knowledgeable place to...
EDIT: If you want to help, read page 2. Lots of additional information :)
No water damage and the board looks clean
This macbook will not boot from internet recovery, SSD or external drive. All get stuck on the apple logo and when booted with Command+V it never actually leaves the EFI part of...
This device came in with the regular PP3V3R3V0_AON short to ground, I first suspected U7600 so I removed it but the short did not go away.
After lifting up and soldering back 2 other chips (I think around U4450) I finally found the suspect on the other side of the board: U4700...
I currently don't have any chargers I can cut the cord from to use on my bench power supply and cutting it off a fully working original would break my heart (and wallet).
Would this be an 'acceptable' replacement: https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/08/03...nd-generation/
Board seems to have been touched by idiots before but I can't find any solder marks, only heat around the CPU (but nothing is melted so I assume it was below 200C)
System has PM_S0_PGOOD but is missing SMC_DELAYED_PWRGD and thus does not boot.
SMC_DELAYED_PWRGD is not shorted to ground
I was wondering if those two assemblies can be used on each other with the only difference being the presence of the kb backlight?
The customer doesn't want to pay a lot for a refurbished or "new" assembly (Which is understandable for a 7 year old machine) but I can't find any...
First time working on one of these macbooks.
This system will boot and work fine for a little moment (although slowly due failing sensors?) and then just crash with graphical glitches just as on its old friend the Macbook Air 2011.
Is this the same as with those, Bad CPU/Bad ram traces/Bad ram...
Apple is really stepping up their game! 114 euros for a charger!
Imagine buying a 1500 euro laptop and then needing to pay over 100 euros for a second charger, something that costs them barely 10 euros to make.
A Macbook 15" Late 2013 model here with no visible signs of water damage. The device suddenly powers off after using it for somewhere between 10 to 40 minutes.
Having a high load running on it won't charge the issues (Furmark + Prime95 for 20 minutes would not cause the device to...
[SOLVED]820-4668 - PP3V3_S4 low - If you power cycle the device ±50 times it will post
Alright, first time repairing an iMac here (What is the best way to do so on a bench by the way? I've tried to use my 5A bench power supply but the inrush on bootup is too high)
History of the device: The...
Replaced a 820-3023 board for a customer with one I had around, everything was alright and good until I figured out it could not boot from the internal SSD.
If you boot a 10.13 recovery or installation it will happily see the APFS container and you're able to unlock it and browse...
I have a Macbook Pro 15" (Mid 2012) over here that came in with the message "Sometimes doesn't show display, PRAM reset has helped a couple of times.". No idea if no display refers to no backlight, no video or just not booting at all.
I can't get these issues to show up as after...
I'm probably doing something incredibly stupid but I just can't seem to figure it out! Every time I place this Macbook Air 11" 2010 motherboard back in its casing it does no longer respond to SMC_ONOFF_L. I can pull it down but the system will not post. Just lifting the side of...
Is it just me that has been receiving a lot of these recently?
All 13" Macbook Air's from 2011 with either the system glitching the heck out and memtest giving errors or just not booting at all and giving the "3 beep" ram error.
Its always the same board giving these issues, 820-3023
I had this 2610 board in a while ago, did the MCP capacitor replacement as every one of these need and the device was booting again.
End of story, happy customer.. Or so I thought.
The device has a couple of issues I can't really figure out:
- It takes about 10 seconds before it moves from the...
ALL_SYS_PWRGD high, fan spinning
U7400 power on pin 15, 24, 40. CPUIMVP_VR_ON high.
R7402/03 within specification
CPU not shorted to ground.
First sighting of a dead U7400? Am I missing something?
The SMC has seen better days but since we get into S0 I don't think there is reason for concern...
Of course this happens on a device (Macbook Air) "opened" by someone else before, I have no idea what they did but this fragile cable loved to separate from its connector on first touch :)
Is there any chance of restoring this or once they separate it breaks some kind of a seal?
I got the...
I have a macbook air here, history unknown but I think someone tried to do something on it before. It looks like someone tried to reflow the memory modules but used a way too low temperature and no flux (The plastic around the modules are slightly molten but not enough to say they...
