Macbook won’t Turn on Repair

Macbook will not turn on Repair is a type of repair which in most cases is caused by a malfunctioning logic board.

The logic board is the main board which holds all the components soldered into it. It is one of the most expensive parts in these Macbooks. Replacement of which can be close to the cost of the Macbook itself.

Thats the reason we do try to repair them, that way we can keep the cost low as well as ensure that you are not loosing your data.

New generation Macbooks, manufactured after 2018 are designed with solid-state drive incorporated within the logic board. There is no more modular design, where we can take out the SSD drive and extract the data in our data recovery system.

What causes Macbook not turning on?

As seen in the picture, these components have a high density and are small in size. Black resistors on the right corner are as big as the tip of a needle!

With the case of this Macbook, a small breadcrumb was enough to oxidate and short a component.

In other cases, it could be a knock off charger that may have sent higher than expected voltage and burned a charging chip or short a capacitor.

Solution for Macbook won’t turn on repair

Not every Macbook is repairable of course. But we do our best in giving them a fair chance to be useful again. And we are good at repairing electronics, Macbook being our favourite!

Depending on the fault this usually falls into 2 categories with modern Macbooks:

Software/Firmware Fault

Restoring Mac corrupted Firmware
Restoring Mac corrupted Firmware on not turning on Macbook

Usually happens after the customer has been applying a software update and after the install, Macbook Doesn’t turn on.

This usually indicates a corrupted Firmware, which with new Macbooks post-2017 is either a T2 Security Chip corruption or M1 corruption.

  1. If Data is important, we may need to go though Data Recovery procedure to extract the data from the dead Macbook.
    We will require confirmation if this step is necessary as extra cost is involved
    Then we can proceed with next procedure of bringing the Macbook Back to life.
  2. If the Data is not important we reflash the firmaware and restore the device to factury defaults.
  3. If in the process Data gets preserved, it is a bonus! Rarely it gets preserved for after 2017 models, hence we highly recommend to consider Data Recovery if data is not backed up.

Hardware/Electronics Fault

Another reason for not turning on Macbook would be an electronics failure.

This may vary from Liquid Damage failure to a power failure. In either case, we need to perform electronic logic board repairs on the Macbook.

  1. If Data is important, we need to go though Data Extraction or Data Recovery procedure to extract the data from the dead Macbook
    We will require confirmation if this step is necessary as extra cost is involved
    Then we can proceed with next procedure of bringing the Macbook Back to life.
  2. If the Data is not important we can straigh dive into the repair process and concentrate of bringing the Macbook Back to life
  3. If in the process Data gets preserved, it is a bonus.! With Macbooks before 2017 model (magnetic charger model) we do not need to worry about the data as it is stored on a removable storage. We take that storage out as first step before any work is done. And attach it back once we confirm Macbook is Stable and Read to test the rest of the System

Your only option of repair is not Apple! We can repair your Macbook for the fraction of the price of the replacement board and will not try to sell you a new Macbook every 2 years. Most importantly we wil advice you for the best cause of action, including your data retention options.
