MacBook Pro :: What To Do After 8600 Logic Board Replacement

Jan 17, 2009

My Early 08's 8600 failed recently (was still working but I got like 10fps on games and it failed the test) so I had it replaced at a few apple stores (an ordeal and frustration in and of itself). Anyways I was wondering if I need to do anything since the logic board has been replaced. Is a format necessary (for optimization and speed and for compatibility)? When I turned on my computer it gave me a warning about my clock being set to March 20, 2000 and a Y2K compatibility error. Should I be worried? All in all everything seems to be OK - unfortunately since my MAC addy changed I can't access Time Machine backups anymore and have to start a new backup

MacBook Pro :: Get Logic Board Replacement?

Nov 5, 2010

I have an A1260 that looks like it's undergoing the problems repaired by this program: [URL] However, I've had this thing apart, replaced the hard drive with an SSD, the optical drive bracket is very bent from when I replaced the optical drive, my display bezel is cracked in two places and held up with duct tape, and it generally looks like hell. Will they still repair the logic board despite all the other, ahem, modifications? I could probably put the original parts back in, but despite that it will be obvious I've taken it apart. It is and was out of warranty when I performed these. Should I take it to a retail store or just call Apple and ship it to them?

MacBook :: Rev A Logic Board Replacement

Oct 29, 2008

I have a Rev. A 1.83ghz MacBook which my partner uses. In the last six months we have had an increasing number of problems with it. First, there were the intermittent sleep problems: delay going to sleep, failing to wake. Then it killed three batteries consecutively before Apple replaced the sleep switch and power connector unit (thank heavens for AppleCare). That was back in July. Now the same problem has recurred: the battery is dead and fails to accept charge. Got a call from Apple yesterday to say that they've switched out the logic board and that the item is ready to collect.

We have eight months left on the AppleCare and what I want to know is:
1) What exactly can we expect from a logic board replacement? Do Apple really have a stockpile of 1.83ghz logic board's floating around in case someone needs a replacement or is there any chance of a processor upgrade with this repair?.............

MacBook :: Replacement Components For Logic Board?

Oct 14, 2010

Last week my friend gave me their macbook for free and told me it had a fried logic board. I took it just because I wanted the learning experience. I'm a freshmen learning engineering, so if soldering/de-soldering is needed I should be fine. I'm wondering how to figure out what is wrong with the logic board, ie. if it got water damage because I was thinking maybe I could try to get replacement components for the logic board. Also it came with a 60gb hard drive, but I was wondering if I could upgrade that. I know I need a 2.5 sata drive, but I was wondering if iIhad to get the hard drive from apple or if I could just go on newegg and buy any hard drive that has 2.5" sata connection.

MacBook :: Logic Board Replacement - Shut Off When Lid Closed

Aug 14, 2009

My white late-2007 MacBook recently had its logic board repaired, and ever since then, some weird things have been happening with it. The first and most annoying thing is that connecting my external display (HP w2338h) to use my MacBook in desktop mode simply does not work like it did before. I'll connect the display, make sure mirroring is turned on, shut the lid of my MacBook, but instead of going to sleep, my MacBook will just shut off.

I'll disconnect the display and open the lid to turn it back on, and it then proceeds to show me the regular Apple boot screen...but with a status bar beneath it that I've never seen before. I've attached a picture of this. Forgot to mention that I did once get the external to mirror my MacBook, but that when I did, the picture quality wasn't quite as sharp as it was before the repair. I tried reconnecting it, and haven't been able to get it working since.

MacBook :: Battery Connector And Logic Board Replacement

Nov 17, 2009

I recently had a problem where my 13" 3 yr old macbook would just blink off. then it became shorter and shorter until it would not start up. i brought it to apple who told me after inspection that it had liquid damage and the battery connector and logic board needed to be replaced for an astounding 800+ dollars. the book only cost me 1100!! i got the book back (obviously i didnt pay that, i am sane!), i fiddled with it by trying to start with just the battery. no response. with the battery and charger. starts for just seconds. and then with just the charger. walla! starts up and runs like new.

MacBook Pro :: Logic Board Replacement Turn-Around Time?

Aug 9, 2010

I'm going to the Apple Store on Wednesday to most likely have my logic board replaced. To those who have had this done, how long does it normally take?

Also, if they determine (for some reason) that this repair is not under warranty, will they call me first to tell me so I don't get a huge bill?

As a side note. Where are the water sensors in the 17" MacBook Pro. I haven't spilled anything on it, but I have used it in some humid situations, and I fear that some of them may have been tripped erroneously. I don't know why I fear these sensors so much, but I just do.

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.

OS X :: Anomalies After MBP Logic Board Replacement

Feb 21, 2010

After my MacBook Pro 2.5's logic board failed( and was replaced under AppleCare) after owning my MBP for just 17 months, activity monitor often shows asl ( system log file) manager at about 100% CPU. Fans spin at 5000rpm. Never had this issue before the logic board replacement. Also, Safari 4.04 frequently crashes; never had this issue either before, either. Occasionally, after restarting my MBP, the Apple doesn't appear on my screen but instead I get image of a folder alternating with a question mark. When trying to use installation disk to start up, under 'select the system you want to use to start up', Mac OS 10.5.8( the OS that's on my hard drive, will not show at's missing. After restarting several more times with installation disk OS 10.5.8 eventually appears as a selection. Why would these issues appear only after the LB was replaced. I suspect that the replacement logic board or its installation is not 100%. Something's not quite right there.

IMac :: Where To Get Replacement Logic Board C2D 1.83?

Nov 7, 2009

I got a mac mini out of warranty (core 2 duo 1.83 ghz) that just died on me. I went to the apple store and they sent it in for a diagnostic. They confirmed that the logic board is dead and will be around $350 to replaced. I'm still weighing my options and was wondering if anyone can direct me to a site that sells replacement logic boards to see if I'm better off doing the repairs myself?

PowerPC :: IMac G5 Logic Board Replacement

Mar 3, 2008

My 17 inch iMac G5 1.8ghz seems to have died. For a while it's been refusing to power up and then powering up randomly but now it wont power up at all. I've looked on the logic board and reset the SMU etc but I can only get the first LED to light up. I think this means the logic board has died. Is it worth replacing the logic board and can it be done easily myself? Or should I just bite the bullet and pay out for a new alu intel iMac? I'm in the UK btw, any ideas on logic board prices?

PowerPC :: 12" G4 Powerbook Fan Replacement Or Logic Board?

Nov 18, 2007

My girlfriend has a 12" G4 Powerbook that she claimed was getting really hot. I noticed it was as well, so I installed iStat Pro and saw that the fan was spinning at 0 RPM. So obviously something is wrong. I read a few posts on people having problems with the logic board, which would also cause the fan not to work. However, the computer runs fine, the fan just doesn't turn on when it gets hot. I haven't (and don't plan to) let it get so hot that it would shut itself off or burst in to flame or whatever happens. I understand it's out of Applecare, but I would prefer to fix it myself on the cheap. I'm perfectly capable and willing to replace the fan, but before I crack it open I would like to know if there is a simple way to see if my problem is simply a dead $30 fan, or a $500 logic board.

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?

i'm not concerned about the speed decrease as im just trying to get this thing rebuilt.

i understand that there are different heatsink assemblys..vertical vs horizontal. however, i do not know how to tell the difference and i am also unsure whether or not my c2d heatsink will work on this board i receive.

the logicboard possess a t7300 c2d and model # is 820-2279-a, it appears.

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

and i totally cant find the serial number on this macbook. under the battery on the tray has no serial number listed, and i've read through this documentation [URL]

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?

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.

MacBook Pro :: Logic Board Is Broken?

Sep 1, 2010

Some of you probably will remember my post a week ago, saying that my MBP DVD drive killed my OSX Installation DVD. here is the conclusion of it, I took it authorised service center here in North Thailand. Waited for a week they sad they will change DVD drive and today it finally arrived. Around 11am they called me and said dude, we changed the drive the problem is still there cant install system. Your "Logic Board' is screwed, you have to wait at least 1 week for a new one.

Now what is logic board? Is that main board? Is it possible for computer to still work with a broken mainboard? I mean I didnt damage it, I had kernell panic and tried to re-install OSX so how could that killed my MPB? I still could boot into disk utility and format the drive was just unable to copy files.To be honest my MBP is 3 months old, i took a good care of it. And I'm very very very dissapointed in apple computers now, expensive and damn un-reliable.

MacBook Pro :: Logic Board Need Replacing?

Oct 12, 2010

Was watching a 720p HD movie on a plane. Movie starts to freeze up. I can move the mouse but the rest of the computer is unresponsive. I force shut down by holding the power button.

Upon restart, all seems well, I login but computer quickly becomes unresponsive again. I force shut down again.

Next restart is over 10 minutes. Gets to login screen but can't login.

I boot from install disk and run HD repair. It finds some problems and repairs them. Reboot. Same symptoms.

I decided it is the HD and archive and install. Install fails. I wipe the HD cleaned and reinstall osx.

All seems fine as I go through set up and login in. A few minutes later same unresponsiveness.

So finally I did what I shouldve done awhile ago which is swap my current hd with my old one. I do and the computer runs fine! I'm at my wits end.

Just so everyone knows, the day before all these symptoms started I swapped my stock 2x1gb ram for 2x4gb ram. I originally thought that was the problem but I've had my original ram in since I've been trying to diagnose and it's made no difference.

MacBook Pro :: MBP Logic Board Replace?

Aug 12, 2008

My computer recently, today, got a problem where the monitor no longer works, and an external monitor doesn't work. Thought it was maybe this can't get out of sleep problem, but it's not.

A shut down and restart, battery removal, connect a another monitor does not do anything. It seems to work fine otherwise.

Took it in and they said the entire logic board had to be replaced, and would be $1,300. owwww.

Is this reasonable? Anyone have a cheaper way to go about this? This is a 2.4 MacBook Pro. Another option, I would hate to do without my computer for a length of time, but $1,300 is money I really don't have now.

I see in the Buyer's Guide another incarnation of the MacBook Pro is coming. Does that mean the price of my logic board would drop soon?

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?

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

MacBook :: Replacing Logic Board RAM And HDD?

Feb 22, 2010

I bought a Macbook 32 month ago and my sister's Macbook is 8 month old. I do some RAM eating tasks, and all she does is type, iChat, and research.

I do Photoshop CS4, Keynote, multitasking, and some games.

Well, the problem is, I have Intel GMA 950, and my sister has nVidia 9400m. She has 2GB of RAM and I have 1GB. And I know what you are going to ask me, and yes, these two Macbooks are the SAME MODEL, just bumped up specs.

Ok, story over, and here is list of what you can do. Please answer as informative or short such as 'yes' or 'no'.

1. Will I be able to swap Logic Board and RAM from two Macbooks?

2. Will it be possible to just swap the HDD AND RAM and me and my sister will be able to keep all the same data, and I will be able to work on heavy multitasking and some good games?

MacBook Pro :: Dead Logic Board ?

Mar 28, 2010

I bought a Macbook Pro about 2 years ago, and I got a call from the Apple service center here in Singapore that my beloved Macbook Pro has a dead logic board! How do logic boards die so early!? It's only been 2 years!? I have numerous other Windows PCs, all of which are much older and work fine. Now I need to buy a new Macbook Pro, but i'm not exactly rich... The refresh should be coming around soon, but finances are still a problem. Can I sell it for some cash? (I've tried numerous sites, all offering around $230 for it, but they only receive from the US.) They say that i'll have to pay around $1200 to get the Logic board fixed, can I get it done cheaper?

What now?
