MOTHERBOARD LEVEL APPLE MAC REPAIRS

All our engineers are extensively trained in laptop motherboard repairs down to component level. A lot of other service centres state they do component level repairs but what they do not tell you is that there are different levels.

For Example

Level 1 – DC Jack/Fuse Replacement
Level 2 – Power IC Replacement (6-12 pin ICs)
Level 3 – Controller IC Replacement (200-400 pin ICs)
Level 4 – BGA Rework Reflow (Northbridge / Southbridge / Graphics Chips)
Level 5 – BGA Reballing

Unlike other repair centers we are trained to repair down to level 5. Currently we have three InfraRed BGA Rework/Reflow units to our disposal and recently we have purchased equipment to help reball BGA Chips.

With cutting edge technology to our disposal we are much more equipped than our competitors to repair Northbridge and GPU issues which are common on most laptops, more so now that manufacturers are fitting higher end chips with ever higher failure rates.

 

APPLE MAC MEGSAFE REPAIR

Apple power problems are usually caused by a faulty/corroded mega safe, which stops your Mac from recharging or powering up.

 Common Symptoms are:

Your Apple Mac battery will not charge
Corroded  Power Connector
Intermittent Battery charging
Mega safe Light Turns Green and Turns off.
Screen Dims and brightens often
When power supply is moved turns off or Light Turns off
The charging light may not illuminate.
A burning smell coming from the DC Jack
No Power

APPLE MAC REPAIR BACK LIGHT FAULTS

Dim Display problems are usually caused by a faulty Back light Fuse or damaged LVDS Connectors, which stops your display screen from illuminating.

Common Symptoms are:

Faint apple Logo
Turns on and Apple Chimes is Present but nothing on screen
Blank Screen

APPLE MAC POWER PROBLEMS

Apple power problems are also caused by faulty power sections on the logic board, which can stop your laptop from recharging or powering up

Common Symptoms are:

Turns off after a while
Not turning ON
Not charging battery
Power supply light blinking when inserted
Battery does not charge even though a new battery has been purchased
Battery does not charge even though a new Power supply has been purchased.

APPLE MAC SCREEN CORRUPTION

Laptop display problems are also caused by a faulty screen or VGA chip on the motherboard, which can affect the display.

80% of the time its a fault with your onboard Graphics Card. These graphics chips are BGA form factor, Ball Grid Array chips cannot be resoldered using convention soldering irons. We have invested over £250,000 on equipment which includes three BGA rework/Reflow units.

Unlike other repair centres we have even perfected BGA reballing..

Common Symptoms are:

Multi Colours
Multi unknown alphanumeric characters
Blank Screen
White Screen
Flickering Screen
Lines on Screen
VGA Chip
Power Light but no display

APPLE MAC HDD PROBLEM

Laptop HDD problems are usually caused by a faulty IDE/SATA Controller, HDD connector on the motherboard or a Faulty HDD.

Common Symptoms are:

SSD / SATA error
Operating system not found
HDD hanging
Clicking noise from HDD
Whining noise

 APPLE MAC LIQUID SPILLAGE

Liquid Spills cause components to short on the motherboard. So the best thing is to turn off your laptop immediately and mop down any excess liquid with paper towels (do not use a hair dryer as that will cause more issues).

Make sure the battery is removed and send the laptop to us immediately.

Liquid spillage can cause rusting if the laptop is not sent to us immediately.

Common Symptoms are:

Keyboard Sticky
No power
Failure of drives
Motherboard Failure
