MacBook :: Keyboard And Trackpad Not Working - Logic Board Repair Possible?

Sep 6, 2010

The keyboard and trackpad on my macbook cut out about six months ago and since then I've been using an external keyboard & mouse. I've only just got round to taking my computer in to be looked at at the genius bar, and what I've heard back is that the connections between the logic board and keyboard top section are damaged, and I've got a quote for <$400 for both to be replaced, which is apparently the only solution. The bulk of the cost is the new logic board, and seeing as it's only a connection rather than the processor itself that is damaged, I'm wondering whether it would be possible to have the logic board component repaired or replaced rather than replacing the entire thing.

MacBook Pro :: Logic Board - Wants To Repair

Dec 10, 2009

My Early 2008 MacBook Pro 15" has a logic board problem. I took it to the Apple Store today and they said they would have to repair it but it would cost me $300 as the one year warranty coverage was over.

$300 seemed like a lot to me because I could get a new Macbook for $999 + Student Discount. However it wouldn't be the same configuration obviously.

My question is whether I should spend the extra cash and fix the old computer or should I get a new one instead?And if I get a new MacBook should I go for the Macbook Pros? I was doubtful about them because they are due to be upgraded

PowerPC :: IBook G4 Logic Board Repair On Ebay?

May 26, 2009

I have two iBooks with bad logic boards, which may or may not be caused by the GPU issue that so many G3s suffer from.

So I was on ebay looking for logic boards and I came across a couple of postings for logic board repair. It sounded like most of them will just resolder the points on the GPU, if thats the problem you have, if not they tell you they can't fix it and charge you nothing, or so their ad says.

The deal is you pay $50 over paypal, ship the computer cross country, they do the work ship it back and voila...

Has anyone ever done this? Is it a scam?

Sure paypal can protect my $50, but if I ship them the computer I may never see it again. Even though it's busted it's worth something...

MacBook :: Keyboard Or Logic Board?

Sep 24, 2009

I aquired a MacBook from a good friend of mine who spilled some kind of liquid on this MacBook. It will not power on. I opened up the machine, and I dont see any kind of residue or any rusting, nothing, it looks immaculate. My question is, could it be the keyboard that short circuited? What are my options? Can I manually test the logic board, or cpu?

i cant find anything on that model, except for on ebay.

MacBook Pro :: Headphone Jack Not Working, Requires Logic Board Replacement?

Sep 19, 2009

I noticed today that the headphone jack on my 13" MBP is not working. I recall it working within the last few days but now nothing. I see no immediate evidence of external damage or foreign object intrusion, and the MBP has not even moved from the desk where it was last used.Suppose I have to go back to the Apple Store to have it fixed, which is a bummer because I literally just had it in there like a week ago to get the optical drive replaced.If the headphone jack does not work, is it required to replace the whole logic board, or is it a part they can typically replace individually? If the logic board needs replacing, do they have to order it in, or do they sometimes keep those in stock? I'd like to know as this might require me to leave the laptop there for several days again which might need some planning on my part.

Hardware :: Keyboard Not Recognized After Logic Board Replacement

Dec 6, 2008

I have an ibook g3, 500 with os x 10.3. I bought it a long time ago in Germany, so it has a German keyboard. Yesterday I replaced the logic board, since my ibook showed signs of the well known logic board / graphics failure. That went well, graphics are working now. But, suddenly the hardware or the os does not recognize the keyboard anymore. I can not type in anything at the log in screen. No lights are working on the keypad as well. Funny thing is, that, when I hold down the apple key at the start up, this works and will get me into the start up options screen. So, I am not sure if it is a matter with the hardware or with the os.

Another thing I recognized: when I put the computer to sleep at the log in screen, the sleep led will light up, but then the ibook will immediately wake up. - This might be connected to the keyboard problem. I bought the logic board replacement in the US. Could this be the problem? Does this logic board probably have trouble with the German keyboard? Or, do you think the logic board replacement is broken as well? Would using an American keyboard help?

MacBook Air :: Replace Logic Board With New Nvidia Board?

Apr 17, 2009

I'm somewhat new to the forums, and found a really good deal for a brand new macbook air (rev.1). I'd like to know if it is possible to replace the logic board in my macbook air with a newer, nvidia-gfx based logic board. As in, will it fit, does the same power supply run it, same peripherals (airport, keyboard, etc) work/interface with it, etc?

MacBook :: 2.4 Keyboard/Trackpad, - External Keyboard/Mouse Not Working

Nov 13, 2009

So my friend was using his MacBook and went to do something else. He came back and the screen was black, he hit space and nothing, tried the trackpad and nothing. He restarted by holding the Power button, and it go to the log-in screen, but he can't type anything, or use the trackpad. He has tired restarting several times and no luck. He also tried an external Keyboard/Mouse and that didn't work.

He did plug in a Flash drive and the light turned on, so the USB ports are at least getting power, but nothing is working.

MacBook Air :: Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working?

Jun 26, 2014

I have a macbook air which trackpad and keyboard doesn't work.

I have searched the forums and tried the most. Here is a list SMC-ResetPRAM-resetCompletely Clean install of 10.9.3 (ongoing)Repaired permissionsChecked if trackpad settings were wrongClose-Open lid to see if that did the trick I have maybe forgotten something, but as you can see I have tried a lot.It all began after the computer being on for over 1 day.When in the login area the OS tells me that no keyboard was found after like 2-3 minutes. Other external devices works just fine. The funny thing is however, the keyboard works when starting up. It's possible to do commands, and if I hold option down to select a start disk the keyboard works here (I can use the arrows to select a startdisc), and when the computer is asleep I can wake it up by pressing the trackpad. So..

OS X :: MacBook Pro - Loud Fan And Keyboard / Trackpad Not Working

Jan 4, 2011

Basically I was using my Mac and it froze so I closed the lid. When I opened it again the fan was much louder than normal. It was still frozen and wouldn't respond so I switched it off from the power button. Then I turned it back on, but it wouldn't boot past the grey screen and the fan was still loud. I read some threads here and it said to boot it in safe mode using Shift, I did that and now I'm at the log in screen. However now the keyboard and trackpad aren't responding and the fan is still loud. If I get an external usb mouse and keyboard, any advice on what to do from there?

MacBook Air :: Trackpad, Keyboard USB Port Not Working?

Dec 21, 2008

I have a 2 Gen MBA and today suddenly the keyboard, trackpad and even the USB port stopped working, I tried connect an external mouse but it didn't work, even other USB devices are not working !! I tried the display port it is fine, but I am not sure about the audio port. I tried the SMC reset but it did me no good.

I had bought the MBA from Apple UK but currently I am in INDIA for my winter break from UNI. I don't have my OSX discs at the moment they are back in UK, I tried calling the Applecare but they are closed being a Sunday, and I don't want the local Apple Authorised Service center to touch my air as I don't trust them (The appointment of these repair centers in INDIA is not upto the highest standards !)

The keyboard and the trackpad are working in the Apple hardware test, I was able to move around the cursor and even use the keyboard to select the various options, so I believe the hardware is fine.

So any suggestions what can I do in the meantime, I will call Apple Care in UK tomorrow. I am not back in the UK till the 26th January.

OS X :: MacBook Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working On Restart?

Jan 10, 2009

I was just using my Macbook normally and it came up with an error like IP was in use or something with the red exclamation mark. The my internet stopped working so I just restarted it. Now my Macbook is literally not working? I can turn it on but when I get to the login screen, my mouse or keyboard are not working! So all I can do is hold the power button to turn off. It appears OSX is still running fine though because the screen dims after a while and the flashing | in the name input bar is still flashing.

MacBook Pro :: Unibody Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working ?

Mar 25, 2009

For some reason i purchased this three weeks ago. Everything was working fine. However today i guess i closed the lid and then when i opened it, the computer didn't wake up. So i just held the power button and restarted. It booted into Leopard fine but now the trackpad and keyboard don't work....

The trackpad and keyboard seem to be fine when i hold the option key too choose what volume to boot from. It seems for some reason the keyboard and trackpad lose its function once it boots into leopard.

I looked up forums and tried numerous things like VRAM wipes, SMC reset, tried external keyboard and mouse and they only work up until it actually boots into the leopard OS. Tried going through a hub and same problem.

Laptops :: MacBook Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working After Disassembly

Feb 8, 2010

I disassembled my MacBook to repair a jammed optical drive. I have two problems: the first is while testing that the optical drive now worked (I tested it will it was still partially disassembled, and it did work) I noticed the track pad and keyboard were not functioning. Obviously the power button works, and the machine booted fine, but the trackpad and the keyboard don't work at all. I had to plug a mouse in to move the pointer. I should note that yes, the trackpad cable was indeed firmly plugged in.

However, at one point when trying to reassemble the top case, the trackpad cable detached from the plastic piece that plugs it into the logic board. I removed the plastic piece, slid it back into place over the wires of the cable and then plugged it back in. So I'm wondering if this means I need a new trackpad cable? My second problem is that upon full reassembly, the machine will not turn on. The power button doesn't work when the top case is firmly back in place and the rest of the machine reassembled. I have no idea what might be causing this.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard And Trackpad Not Working When The Battery Is In The Laptop

Oct 13, 2010

About a month ago my Macbook Pro keyboard and trackpad stopped working when the battery was in the laptop. However, when I take the battery out and keep it plugged into an wall outlet, there are no problems. A USB external mouse/keyboard work fine, but its not easy to bring them everywhere I need my laptop. This may not be relevant, but when the mouse and trackpad are not working, the screen still dims when I place my hands over the speakers. I have bought a new battery, hoping that was the problem, but it made no difference. I can't check to see if my software is updated, because my software update is also functioning incorrectly. It takes an average of 5 hours for the software update to search, and it always comes up with "no available updates."

OS X :: MacBook Trackpad And Keyboard Stopped Working Suddenly

Feb 10, 2009

It seems that during my afternoon class, I shut down my macbook and then when I went to use it about 10 minutes later the keyboard nor the trackpad works. Now the keyboard/trackpad is not defective as it works via the OSX install cd and it works in Windows Vista (dual booted) When ever I start up OSX it just comes up and the mouse is in the upper left hand corner, and the keyboard doesn't work at all. I have tried a pram reset by pressing command + option + p + r and that did nothing. When I am in OSX the only way to get out is to hold down the power button till the macbook turns off. What else could be wrong is there anything I can do, the nearest Apple store is about 80 miles away so I am trying to avoid that at this point as it seems like a software issue.

MacBook :: Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working After Disassembly/reassembly?

Feb 8, 2010

I'm a newbie to this forum and haven't been able to find a solution to my specific problem(s) after searching the archives. I disassembled my 1st generation MacBook to repair a jammed optical drive. Well, now I have two new problems:

The first is while testing my repaired optical drive (I tested it while the laptop was still partially disassembled, and the optical drive does now work) I noticed the track pad and keyboard were not functioning. Obviously the power button works, and the machine booted fine, but the trackpad and the entire keyboard don't work at all. I had to plug a mouse in to move the pointer. I should note that yes, the trackpad cable was indeed firmly plugged in. *However, at one point while trying to reassemble the top case, the trackpad cable detached from the plastic piece that plugs it into the logic board. I removed the plastic piece, slid it back into place over the wires of the trackpad cable and then plugged it back in to the logic board. So I'm wondering if this means I now need a new trackpad cable?

The second problem is that upon full reassembly, the machine will not turn on. The power button simply doesn't work when the top case is firmly back in place and the rest of the machine (screws, l-bracket, battery, etc.) is completely reassembled. I have no idea what might be causing this.

MacBook Air :: Keyboard Trackpad Stops Working After Sleep Mode Ends

Apr 17, 2012

I got a brand new Macbook Air the other week.I noticed that sometimes, after folding the computer (with the OS running), then unfolding it - the keyboard and trackpad are not responding at the login screen. Actually if I press the keyboard it lights up properly but there is no access to the system. The only thing that works is the power button, so every time I have to power down the computer, then back on again.

OS X :: MacBook Pro Logic Board?

Sep 22, 2009

Anyway... I was planning on getting my hard drive replaced because it was making that weird noise I talked about and I still am... but. Something else happened to. My friends dog chewed my power cord (just a few bite marks) and it was enough to make the green like really dim so we unplugged it. Instead of trying to fix the cord... we just got a new one but the computer wont turn on!
The light does not turn red green or orange on the plug but the battery light blinks when I unplug the chord (the battery is dead.. all drained i mean).

Me and my mom took the computer to a store that does warranty repairs on both Macintoshes and Windows computers and they said they would replace whatever for free. Like the harddrive maybe the battery if that is what is wrong and the logic board. But well... we kind of never told them my friends dog ate my first power cord >>

I wanted to. but my mom and my friend said they wont replace it for free if we told. I sure hope there is no way they can find out of the 1000 for a new logic board is true. We dont even have that kind of money right now!

But do you think the couple seconds of not enough power from the chewed cord might have shorted out my psu or something?

Im just curious. I know my friend has a friend that took his laptop in for a similar problem... yesterday or the day before.

OS X :: Trackpad And Keyboard Stops Working In 10.5.7?

May 14, 2009

I have some strange problem after updating my MacBookPro4,1 to 10.5.7. After a while (can be a few hours) the trackpad and keyboard stop working. When I then put the MBP to sleep and wake it up, both work again but only for about maybe 5-10 minutes. This can be reproduced (put to sleep, works for 5min, put to sleep, works for 5min, etc.) When I reboot it works again for some hours.

OS X :: Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working After Charging?

Jan 10, 2010

Ok, after having no problems with my MB pro, I am suddenly having all kinds of problems. Today, my trackpad suddenly stopped working. Finger movements don't work, neither does clicks. Now my keyboard is not fully working. It is kind of 'hit and miss.' I had the MB charged and it was not plugged in. It seems to work if I type very slowly. The only other thing I noticed was that it was really lagging today. The busy pinwheel would come up when there wasn't hardly anything even open.
