iFixExpress offer Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, and Macbook screen repair services. Have you been quoted an unrealistic price for a screen repair or replacement on your Macbook? We are able to repair you Mac screen at a fraction of the cost as our iFixExpress ® Certified Technicians can rebuild the screen in most cases with brand new parts. If you have been along to Apple direct you will have realised that the only option on offer with the macbook screen repair  is a full screen replacement.

While this is the only option in a minimal amount of cases, in most cases the screen can be rebuilt with a new LCD, or LED panel. In a lot of cases when it comes to the Macbook unibody 13:, 15, or 17″ its only the glass that has been cracked. In this case we are able to remove the old broken glass panel that is glued into the screen panel and replace it with a fresh spanking new one. many companies will not replace the glass due to the health and safety aspect  of shattering glass.

We use a unique  procedure to carry out this kind of repair, and we can have this done usually the very same day or within 24 hours. Macbook With Intermittent Dark Screen: Other popular kinds of screen repairs we carry out are on the white and black Macbook A1181 models (pre-unibody models 2006 – 2008). Are you finding that your old Macbook screen keeps going black when you move the screen up and down? If you shine a light on the screen can you still see the desktop? If the answer is yes your more than likely experiencing a damaged inverter cable or inverter itself.

With some of the MacBooks pre 2008 this is very common. In most cases this problem can be corrected with a replacement inverter. In a small amount of situations this could also be the backlight that is faulty in the LCD itself, in this case we would need to replace the screen. In an even smaller amount of cases (and we mean very small) it can be the fuse on the logic board or the logic board itself that is playing up.

If this is the case we can advise on a couple of different options for macbook screen repair issues. Same Day Screen Replacement for Macbook and Macbook Pro Quality Glass Panel Replacement on Macbook Unibody Replacement Hinges for Macbook Air A1369, A1237 Models White/Black Macbook Inverter Cable Repalacement A1181 Tracking Of Vintage iBook, Powerbook G4 Laptop LCD Panels Mobile Macbook Screen Repair throughout London, Essex Macbook Pro MA896LL – Models A1226, A1150 nVidia Replacement  Macbook Pro Vertical Lines or Black Screen: If However you have a Macbook Pro pre unibody model (Macbook pro with silver keys models A1226, A1150) and you are experiencing vertical coloured lines down the screen, or that when you power on your Macbook pro you hear a chime and the screen stays black this is more than often not a macbook screen repair issue, but a nVidia graphics chip (8600M GT) issue .

Unfortunately the chip is attached to the logic board itself. This is very common on the pre unibody Macbook pro models. For a period of 4 years from new Apple extended the warranty on these models for a free repair (replacement logic board). Unfortunately for many this extended warranty has now expired leaving them with the costly option of a complete logic board replacement. That is of course that your models logic board is still available  and not classed as a vintage Mac.

If you are experiencing this issue there is still hope. We are able to track down vintage logic boards, but more importantly we are able to repair the logic board itself with a new graphics chip.

The primary function of latest laptop or computer display screen savers is entertainment and sometimes even, security. Nonetheless, they were being in the beginning designed to avert phosphor burn-in on plasma laptop monitors too as CRT products. Monitor savers served to prevent these negative outcomes by immediately altering the pictures when the laptop or computer was not getting used.



Let me convey to you of a mind maximizing system I had stumbled on just after loading an incredibly substantial number of illustrations or photos into My Pictures file, which was routinely hooked, perhaps like your laptop set up, to my monitor saver plan. Following sitting down and looking at it sooner or later, I mentioned how it spurred on my mind and enhanced my spatial reasoning before planning periods. It definitely assisted and i was surprised.

Sometimes, when you troubleshoot a MacBook, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air problem you need to turn it on without using the power button. Is it possible? Yes, it is! In these laptops (unibody style) the power button is permanently attached to the keyboard. Basically, it’s a part of the keyboard as you can see on the following picture. If the keyboard failed (let’s say you spilled liquid on it ) and the power button stopped working there is a workaround for turning it on.

You cannot use this method to turn on your MBP on a daily basis but it is a good troubleshooting technique. It might help to figure our if the motherboard still works even though the computer doesn’t turn on when you push on the power button. You can turn it on by shorting the power-on pads with a small flathead screwdriver for a couple of seconds. The power-on pads located on the motherboard. In order to access them you’ll have to remove the bottom cover and it’s very easy.

NOTE: shorting the power-on pads might not work if the keyboard still connected to the motherboard. If it doesn’t work, unplug the keyboard cable from the motherboard and try again. Sometimes it takes a few attempts to make it work. In this post I’ll show you how to locate the power-on pads on different Apple laptops. The location depends on the model (year). You can find the model using the serial number.

Locate the serial number printed on the bottom cover and enter it in the search tech specs box (click on Browse by Product button first). I’ll be adding more pictures as I get access to other models. MacBook (13-inch, Late 2008) In this model the power-on pads look like two solder terminals and located right above the touchpad cable. MacBook (13-inch, Late 2009) In this model the power-on pads located above the left side of the keyboard connector.

MacBook (13-inch, Mid 2010) The power-on pads located right above the left side of the keyboard connector on the motherboard. Two square terminals positioned vertically. MacBook Air (11-inch, Late 2010) In this MacBook Air the power-on pads located right above the keyboard connector. MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2011) In this MBA the power-on pads located just above the right side of the keyboard connector.

MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2012) In this MBA 13-inch the power-on pads located right above the keyboard connector. MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2009) In this MBP the power-on pads located between the trackpad connector and hard drive connector. On the following picture I disconnected the hard drive cable so you can see the power-on pads better. You still should be able to short them with a small flathead screwdriver even without disconnecting the cable.

I guess that MBP (13-inch, Mid 2009) have two different logic boards. They are similar but power-on pads located in a different spot. Take a look at the following two pictures. The power-on pads located on the right side from the hard drive cable. On the following picture the hard drive cable disconnected so you can see the pads. MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2010) In this model the power-on pads look like two silver squares and located above the keyboard connector on the left side from the square chip.

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early-Late 2011) In this model the power-on pads located on the upper side of the motherboard, on the right side from the screw mounting hole. MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012) Here’s a shot of the MacBook Pro 13″ Mid 2012 logic board power on pads. These pads are located to the left of the memory slots and above a silk screened “HF/e1” on the logic board. The power-on pads are shiny, silver, square, and larger than the other (mostly round) silver pads nearby.

MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2008) This MBP has power-on pads located on the left side of the motherboard, right above the optical drive cable connector. They look like two square solder terminals positioned vertically. MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2009) This motherboard DOESN’T HAVE the power-on pads. In order to turn on the laptop you’ll have to short the 5th pin from the left side of the keyboard connector to the ground (a metal stud on the motherboard).

Be careful! Do not short other pins. MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2,53GHZ, Mid 2009) In this model the power-on pads located on the lower part of the motherboard. MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010) In this model the power-on pads located right above the keyboard/trackpad connector shield. Here’s a close-up picture with the keyboard/trackpad connector shield removed. The power-on pads look like two solder terminals and located above the trackpad connector.

MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early-Late 2011) In this model the power-on pads also located right above the keyboard/trackpad connector shield but positioned vertically. The pads look like two square solder terminals and located above the keyboard connector. MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2012) and MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Early 2013) On this motherboard the pads located on the left side for the AirPort board.

Here’s a close up picture. MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early-Mid 2009) In this model the power-on pads located on the left side from the memory slot and marked R5015. MacBook Pro (17-inch, Mid 2010) On this logic board the pads located in the lower left corner, on the right side to the mounting screw. MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early-Late 2011) On this motherboard the power-on pads located horizontally, on the left side from the square SMC chip (the larges square chip on the picture).
