PowerPC :: EMac Logic Board - Missing Power Button Connector

Apr 2, 2010

I just bought a new Logic Board for a 1.25Ghz eMac and I've put almost everything back together after installing it until I ran into a problem. The power button cable that runs from the power button on the casing into the logic board has no connector on the Logic Board itself, now I have an old logic board that whilst being broken has a connector on it but I really don't want to have to solder the connector on for fear of breaking the logic board.

PowerPC :: Power Button Cord Connector Broken Off EMac Logic Board?

Nov 28, 2009

I was attempting to replace the hard drive in my eMac, but for instructions I HAD to follow some darn take-apart guide that said pull out the connection for the power button cord from the logic board. I didn't know that it was SOLDERED in there, and now I can't complete putting my eMac back together without doing so.

Can this be fixed without having to send it to Apple? Does it HAVE to inolve soldering, or is there an alternative? Is there a way I can temporary have my eMac power on until I get the connector fixed?

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 :: Fan Connector Pins Broke Right Off Logic Board

Nov 26, 2009

It happened when I was trying to install my right fan. The plug was too big for the connector and the connector just broke right off the logic board. I now see the solder points. They are too small for a normal soldering iron so I can't solder the wires directly on. What are my options now? I hope I won't have to replace the logic board considering it's working perfectly except for this one part.

MacBook Pro :: Logic Board Failed Because Of Battery Connector

Jul 3, 2012

After 1.5 years of use, my MBP's hard drive failed. So I purchased a new SSD and followed carefully the installation guide on [url].. and also [url]..

After the installation my macbook was unable to power up. I took it to Apple Genius Bar and the guy told me my Logic Board has been damaged, possibly because of the installation. He also told me I was not meant to disconnect the battery connector because this causes damage to Logic Boards.

Info:MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

PowerPC :: Using 20" IMac G5 ISight Logic Board Unable To Power Up

Feb 25, 2010

I've got a 20" 2.1GHz iMac G5 iSight on my bench that doesn't power up.

I've tracked down the issue to a grenaded IC on the logic board.

The IC is an 8 pin SOIC chip, to the right of the power connector, just above the ALS connector. It is labeled UE300.

If you know what this guy is, can send me a good picture of one, or can provide me with the numbers from the IC, I can get this mac back to life.

MacBook Pro :: Dead USB Port Indicated By Gold Button On Logic Board?

Jan 4, 2011

Over Christmas my MBP was put in an awkward position resulting in the USB thumb drive plugged in to the side USB port being bent. The damage was mainly to the thumb drive itself.

A few days later I tried using this same USB port for something else and noticed it appeared to be dead. I tried an SMC reset which didn't help, so I thought I'd take the cover off to inspect any possible damage. I wasn't able to see anything obvious apart from small, thin golden "buttons" with pointed heads that appear to be on a spring (I can't think of how else to describe them) that are in line with each of the USB/Firewire/Display ports on the left side of the logic board. Coincidentally, the button that lines up with the dead USB port is pushed in and not springing back out.

I have a genius bar appointment for Thursday, and I'm worried that I'll be told that I have to buy a new logic board to fix my little USB port. However, I was hoping someone could confirm my suspicions (and general curiosity) about the function of that little gold button I described above?

MacBook :: Replacing C2d Logic Board With Cd Logic Board Cause Heat Sink?

May 13, 2008

so i've got a system with a fried c2d board. i can pick up a cd board for $150 plus shipping which is good for me. to find a comparable replacement, i'm looking at ~350 and i'm just not feelin that price as im on a budget.

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]

Would it be possible to get a logic board with a 1.33ghz or faster processor out of a 12.1" G4 and swap it in to a G3? Are the parts even compatible? I know from building engines that certain years and parts are interchangable but I don't know about computers.

PowerPC :: Used Powerbook With A New Logic Board?

Mar 6, 2008

I'm still working on this deal to buy a used 12" PB. The seller says that she just replaced the logic board, hard drive, and battery. Now, I see this as a negative. Obviously the computer was having problems, she spent a bunch of money fixing it, and is now selling it anyway. What do you think? Is it a negative that it had problems and needed to be fixed? Or is it a positive that it has a brand new logic board that will theoretically last longer than an original one?

PowerPC :: PowerBook MBP Logic Board? - G4

Jul 6, 2008

I bought my first Mac (iBook) last December. However, it is now dead from logic board failure. I was looking at Macbooks but they are very expensive, which is why I bought the iBook in the first place. So now I'm looking at 15" PowerBook G4. My question is: If having a G4 proves too difficult in the next few years (PowerPC compatibility and speed), could I put a logic board from a 15" MBP in the PB?

PowerPC :: What To Do With A G5 IMac And A Bad Logic Board

Jun 26, 2009

As the title implies, I've got 3 year old G5 iMac sitting as a paperweight at my desk. At least half that time ago the logic board died and I was quoted a repair bill of around $900. I couldn't go with it, but I couldn't decide what to do with it either. I now have to get rid of it and since I know that this model had lots of issues with logic boards I'm hoping some of you will have some good advice.

PowerPC :: Honoring Logic Board Switch Out?

Oct 29, 2006

I've got a 900mhz G3 iBook that my wife uses. The logic board was replaced on it once already. It's really starting to act up again. I see Apple is still honoring their Logic Board switch out. What are the chances they'll upgrade it to a G4 or a macbook ? Has any recently sent there iBook in for a logic board replacement? How'd it go, how long did it take?

PowerPC :: Fix IBook G3 Logic Board Options

Jul 11, 2007

my G3 iBook's logic board has died (it was in that series that had the logic board problem). I had it replaced once already when it was under warrenty. However, the second one has died and Apple will not touch it (unless I pay something like $350 for Apple to fix it). Well, I decided to take matters into my own hands and I ripped open my iBook piece by piece. Now that I have the logic board in front of me, what can I do to fix it? Can I sodder something? Should I take it out and buy a new one off ebay?

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 :: G5 Logic Board EEE Code Compatibility

Mar 27, 2008

I'm obviously new with Power Mac G5. I have two different logic boards for a Power Mac G5. The EEE code and part numbers are as follows:

Logic Board 1:
Part Num: 661-3585
Other Num: 630T6907 (I don't know what this number signifies)

Logic Board 2:
Part Num: 661-3584
Other Num: 630T6906 (Again, I don't know what this number is for)

My question is this; what configurations can I use these boards as replacements in? I'm looking at 3 PowerMacs right now but none have matching EEE codes. I listed the EEE codes and the type of machine they are below.

PowerMac 1:
EEE code: Q5M
Single 1.8GHz G5, 1GB Ram

Power Mac 2:
EEE code: ROR
Dual 2.5GHz G5, 1GB Ram

Power Mac 3:
EEE code: Q6E
Dual 2.0 GHz G5, 4GB Ram, Bought in late 2003

So, if it is impossible to use these logic boards as replacements in any of the above mentioned systems, which systems are they actually good for? I understand there may be system bus speed differences for one. But is there some sort of reference for these EEE codes such as a table or chart? Or possibly a compatibility list or description table with features for each board?

PowerPC :: Take Logic Board Out To Get Optical Drive?

Jan 8, 2009

I picked up a 12" PB for 160 USD today. It had a bad battery and noisy and seemingly non functional optical drive, stock configuration. Looked like someone tried to open it up and failed to put back one of the hinge screws. I believe this is causing a green line (crimp in the video cable) on the screen. My question is: I have never replaced the optical drive on one of these. I bought this for a friend whose ibook died and he has a nearly brand new dual layer ATA superdrive in it that I can replace into the Powerbook. I knew this was daunting. Then I really just looked at the ifixit steps and yeah, you have to dismantle the WHOLE computer. There are 46 steps to replace the optical drive. Has anyone attempted this? I don't understand why you have to take out the logic board to get the optical drive out? On the upside, the near dead battery is eligible for the replacement program, so Apple is sending a new 125 dollar battery. Sorry I am rambling, just freaked at how much work it is to put a new optical drive in these things. Major surgery. someone on MR said they did it before.

PowerPC :: G5 Freezes / Dead Logic Board?

Jun 7, 2010

Having built a hackintosh with my son, I've taken his old G5 1.6 to use as a desktop. Lovely being able to use dual screens, usefully quicker than my Powerbook G4 1.5 and generally quick enough to do the usual - mail, browsing etc.

Problem is, it's started freezing roughly once a day. No mouse or keyboard reaction, going into standby by using the monitor button doesn't help, the only thing to do is turn it off using the front panel button.

I put new RAM in a few months back and replaced the HDD when it died, so that stuff should all be OK. Any suggestions? I've run all the usual maintenance things via Onyx - permissions, logs, daily / weekly / monthly scripts and so on.

My big concern is obviously that I don't want it to just die on me; no way am I replacing the logic board if it goes.

PowerPC :: Cost Of Replacing IMac G5 Logic Board?

Feb 11, 2006

My iMac died a few days ago. I shut it down the previous night, and then in the morning when I went to turn it on, nothing happened. The screen display doesn't turn on, nothing. I opened it up and did the LED tests, and found that the first one would turn on, but none of the others would. The apple site says to take it to a store and have it fixed.

Now, I bought my mac on December 19th, 2004 ( what a day that was). At the time, I didn't think I'd need to buy applecare or anything. So about how much do you guys think it would cost to replace the logic board? And also, how long would it take to have it replaced?

PowerPC :: G4 Logic Board Fried - How To Get Data Off Drive

Aug 3, 2006

The logic board on my powerbook (aluminum)G4 is fried. I would like to get the data off the drive, but would like to do it myself. Will the drive plug into an external carrier rig like any other drive? I have a granite digital external firewire drive caddy rig. I assume that the mini drive in the powerbook will not plug into an enclosure that was made for a regular drive? Are there any adapters for this sort of thing?
