This service is to repair the logic board (motherboard) of most Mac laptops (see Compatibility list below) by using microsoldering techniques and analysis to replace specific damaged components - this is a repair service, not a logic board replacement service. We can also repair damaged connectors on iMac logic boards. If you are interested in microsoldering repairs to non-Apple equipment, please see our Solder Fix website.

This is done on a no fix, no fee basis - only shipping charges apply unless the repair is successful.

If you book the service online, the payment you make will remain on a pre-authorisation (Pending) status until the repair is complete - the funds are not transferred out of your account, but simply reserved by your bank to cover the payment when it occurs. Should we be unable to complete the repair successfully, we will only charge you the return shipping fee and the rest of the funds will be released back to you.

If you prefer not to make an advanced payment authorisation at all, you are more than welcome to send your Mac to us without booking this service. You can ship it to us with a covering letter, or drop it off in person, to our Cambridge location. If you want to discuss it in advance, please give us a call on 01223 833 412.

This service covers the repair of the logic board only, it may be necessary to replace other components such as keyboards, trackpads, LCD connectors, hard drives, etc - these would be quoted as an additional cost.

Common Issues resolved by this service

  • No power
  • No green light on charger (having already tested another charger)
  • Liquid damage
  • Burnt LVDS connector
  • No display on internal screen
  • No Audio
  • Damaged connectors
  • Not charging battery (having already tested another battery and charger)
  • 2010 15" MacBook Pro with no video - this is a bad frame buffer capacitor (not GPU) - or see our dedicated service.
  • MacBook Airs 2013 - 2017 that exhibit no power on at all - this is often due to a blown capacitor on these models.
  • iMacs with damaged / pulled off connectors such as the common screen cable

Repairing versus replacing saves the environment, saves money and can save time. Why pay £300 - £700 to replace a board when you can repair for £150?

Repairs have a 3 month warranty - should the logic board fail or exhibit instability within this period, we will refund the cost of this service (but not any shipping charges).

Things we cannot resolve

We cannot replace BGA processors or graphics cards this is due to the fact the it is not possible to obtain reliable new parts to replace them with, the effort involved in doing these replacements with non new parts is not worth it as the longevity of the repair cannot be guaranteed. We do offer a reflow service for some graphics cards but that is a temporary solution.

Please note that not all no graphic situations are related to the graphics card. For example the MacBook Pro 2010 15" common fault is in fact a bad frame buffer capacitor, not the GPU. Also missing voltage rails such as CPUVcore can make a fault appear like a failed graphics card. If you think you have a graphics card fault please contact us first and we will see if this service is likely to work for you.

We don't repair power supplies, we replace them there are fixed costs for these.

We are very unlikely to be able to repair the boards in the little 12in MacBook Retina range of laptops.

Currently we are offering this no fix not fee service for machines from 2018 and earlier - we can and do repair later MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs, but they are significantly less repairable than the earlier models and we deal with them on a case by case basis. Please contact us regarding your individual machine and we can discuss options.

Things to note

With logic board repair it may often be necessary to replace broken traces (the copper which connects components together) with wires this is very effective but not attractive to look at, we are aiming to restore the machine to life not to make it pretty.

We are very experienced at dealing with liquid damaged machines and a wide range of component failures, however some machines are just too badly damaged to be worthwhile to repair. In these cases, if you book this service, you will pay any shipping charges, but there is no charge for assessment.

Sometimes when damage is great we may be able to bring the machine back to life but may not be able to resurrect some external connections (Thunderbolt, USB, etc) we will discuss this with you if necessary.

We want whole machines to work on, not board only. This is so that we can warranty our work and ensure that there is nothing in the casing that will cause the fault to re-occur, for example with a burnt LVDS connector which affects both the logic board and the display.

This is not a guaranteed fix, rather a it is a no fix no fee attempt to repair boards that otherwise would have to be replaced for several times the cost of a successful repair.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact our team before sending in the machine and we will do out best to explain the options.
