Graphics problems, such as distorted or flickering images, could also be a sign of a logic board issue.

Liquid (water) spills can be detrimental to the logic board and other components of your MacBook. Overheating is another factor that can lead to damage to the logic board and other parts, consequently affecting the MacBook’s performance.

But if, unfortunately, your MacBook still cannot turn on, please contact us for a free diagnosis or if you have any questions. Here are some frequently asked questions (FAQs) that might help you better understand.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

✨ What could make the logic board spoiled?

Three factors commonly contribute to logic board issues. The first factor is user-inflicted physical damage, which includes drops, knocks and liquid (water) spills. The second factor is usage wear and tear over time, leading to the degradation of components like chipsets, controllers and sensors on the logic board, eventually resulting in failure. The last factor involves uncontrollable circumstances, like high voltage surges from power outlets or accidents due to unforeseen environmental factors such as short circuits.

To safeguard your Mac from potential damage caused by voltage issues, consider using an Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR). To learn more about this protection, click here.

✨ Which MacBook logic board can be repaired?

We can usually repair all iMac, MacBook and Mac mini logic boards. Whether we can repair a Mac depends on the availability of replacement parts such as chipsets, controllers or sensors. We are capable of repairing Macs that are up to 15 years old if the necessary parts are still accessible.

Two important criteria that determine the repairability of a logic board are as follows:

First Criteria

We assess whether another party has previously attempted a repair on the board. However, if the previous repair was done incorrectly, resulting in further damage to the logic board, it may become unrepairable.

Second Criteria

In the case of liquid-damaged Macs, we highly recommend immediate cleaning and repair to halt the growth of algae and the corrosion process. For more information on water-damaged Macs, click here.

✨ Is there a warranty for logic board repair

The logic board repair comes with a minimum 90 days warranty. Once we have successfully repaired it, we will show the client the specifics of the repair and the actions we have taken. The focus will be on restoring it to 100% working condition.

✨ How long does it take for MacBook Logic Board Repair

The time required for a MacBook logic board repair can vary significantly, ranging from a few days to a week or even more. This variation depends on the repair service utilized and the complexity of the repair itself. To help you plan accordingly, we will provide you with an estimated turnaround time before you give your consent to proceed with the repair.

✨ Does all repairs guarantee 100% success?

We will put forth our best effort to ensure the repair’s success. Our success rate is quite high – currently, out of 100 Macs only 1 or 2 fail to be repaired. In the event of an unsuccessful repair, we will not charge any fee to the customer and we will take care not to cause any further damage to the logic board. Our 15 years of experience will prove beneficial in such situations.

✨ After repair, how long can it last?

Honestly, the answer to this question is unknown even to Apple. The lifespan of hardware depends on user usage patterns and environmental factors such as humidity and heat. Accidents like physical damage from drops and knocks also play a role in determining the life cycle of the Mac.

We conduct thorough testing, stress tests, and various diagnostic tests before and after the repair to ensure that everything is at 100% when you receive your repaired Mac.

Additionally, we go the extra mile by installing temperature monitors, fan controllers, turbo clock controllers and providing advice to help you prolong the life cycle of your Mac.

✨ My MacBook still has a warranty from Apple. If you guys check it, will it void my warranty?

No, our checking will not void your warranty because we are familiar with what Apple looks for when determining the validity of the warranty.

✨ Can you guys check it and give me a quote? I am looking around, comparing quotes.

Yes, definitely! We don’t mind if you compare around and, by the way, checking is free! We will not force you to commit to repair with us in any way at all.

✨ How much does it cost for repair?

When customers inquire about repair, this question is one we encounter the most. Usually, the price can vary from a few hundred to several thousand dollars. We will be able to provide you with a firm quote after we examine your Mac and determine which components on the logic board need to be repaired or replaced. It is worth mentioning again that checking is free and there is no obligation to proceed with the repair with us after the checking.

✨ Is it worth to repair?

If there is too much damage to repair or if parts need replacement, we will advise you that getting a new unit might be a better idea. In some cases, the total repair cost and the cost of replacing other hardware can nearly match the price of a new unit.

Here’s a real-life example for you: One of our clients accidentally dropped his MacBook into the sea while he was using it on his yacht. He immediately sent it to us for checking. We found that the salty sea water had badly corroded the logic board and at the same time, the screen, keyboard, trackpad and battery had also been damaged by the seawater.

We advised him that buying a new one might be a better option since so many repairs and replacements were necessary. He went ahead and got a new one, which made more economic sense.

✨ How come your repair is cheaper than the official service centre?

Third-party repair services may provide more flexible repair options, giving you the ability to fix individual components on the logic board, which proves to be more cost-effective than replacing the entire board. On the other hand, the official service centre only performs parts replacement and does not offer any kind of repair.
