MacBook Water Damage
Our number one repair is the MacBook broken screen repair, but the water damage is also a common complaint. Here is a list of components that are damaged when liquid enters your laptop from our experience dealing with clients complaints:
Motherboard / Logic board
MacBook Logic Board replacement
The logic board is the term used for the motherboard in MacBook’s, which contains the circuit and features that allow your computer to function. Common logic board failure signs include problems with the MacBook’s power, graphics card and other strange behaviours.
With water spillage, don't panic because in most cases we have seen, replacement is not always necessary. If the liquid had just corroded the motherboard, professional cleaning is only what is required to get your MacBook back up and running, but if the motherboard was completely submerged, a new one will be required.
Another major sign of a MacBook logic board failure is the laptop not turning on at all when you long-press the power button. While a dead battery could also be the reason for this issue, failure to power on even with the power cord is plugged in signals logic board issues. In some other cases, your computer may power on but unexpectedly shut down on its own before booting process is complete, or it may boot up but keep shut down randomly while using it. Another signal to show a faulty logic board is your MacBook completely freezing to a point where you have to forcefully hold down the power button to make it off power on and off. All the above are indicators of a failing motherboard.
MacBook Keyboard Replacement
Most liquid spillages lead to keyboard failures like the wrong keys coming up when pressed or even causing your MacBook to not power on as the power button is part of the keyboard. Replacement of keyboard is quite a necessity, in this case, so make sure the keyboard you are getting is a good quality brand and the replacement is done seamlessly.
MacBook Battery Replacement
Liquid spillage can lead to destroying the life of your MacBook battery. Some common laptop battery problems;
The battery runs out, quickly
The MacBook is only working while on charge
A constant display of an "X" where the battery sign is
The battery is not charging at all
A new battery will resolve most of the issues above, but sometimes power issues can be caused by a faulty power jack, which is usually fixed by soldering a new jack in its place. At Mobile Expert, we can fix any MacBook power and battery issues.
MacBook RAM Upgrades
A Mac RAM upgrade can help with issues of your computer running slow or hanging. More memory will enhance your Macs workability. You will get a faster and more powerful machine. It may sound like an easy thing to do but some laptops like the latest MacBook’s have their RAM chip inserted directly on the motherboard which requires handling with caution because in the process you may tamper with the logic board. If this is your dilemma, come and have our technicians do the upgrading for you.
MacBook Backlighting Issues
Backlight problems are frequent in MacBook’s, where the screen will be severely dim and will not light up even on increasing the brightness. MacBook’s develop this issue mostly because of dust building up in the Backlight circuit on the motherboard, leading to dampness and eventually destroying the features.
MacBook Backlight problems can be because of several reasons, however, the main culprit's things but the main culprits are the logic board, LC cable or the screen. Because of this, it is difficult to say for certain what is required without looking at the device first. We first diagnose the machine, and then we advise on what exactly needs replacement.
