Apple Macbook Pro Logic Board Repair Service

6 Month Warranty with updated chipset fitted

To adhere to ebay rules the £11.95 buy it now covers: 1. An Initial assesment of your unit with a printed report of the suspected fault, 2. A printed guide how to keep your laptop cooling system free of blockages, and 3. The return postage for your laptop back to you.

If you then require the Standard or Advanced repair to adhere to ebay rules the payment will be made through ebay by clicking the standard or advanced repair once the unit has been assessed and whether it is suitable for a repair. (see other items)


Please note we do not offer a reflow or reball alone for the Apple Macbook Pro Nvidia based Chipsets. For most other Sony, Toshiba models etc, either of these repair options are a suitable option, but through our extensive research we know that the only long-term solution for this model is to fit a brand new updated Nvidia chipset reballed with leaded solder. 

To our knowledge we cannot find a UK company offering this so all repairs on ebay are only temporary and will fail again in 2-5months!

Also do not waste your time buying a brand new motherboard as it will have the old Nvidia chipset prone to failure. 


CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE OF UK (EU)

Please email with details before buying to confirm postal services and prices for returning your Macbook

Please note we are offering our service through 'Buy it Now' format to allow customers to leave feedback. Please be wary of services sold under classified ads which offer little or no comeback.

To adhere to ebay rules the £11.95 buy it now covers an initial assesment of your unit with a printed report of the suspected fault, a printed guide how to keep your laptop cooling system free of blockages and return postage for your macbook back to you.

If you then require the Standard or Advanced repair to adhere to ebay rules the payment will be made through ebay and can be paid by paypal or a bank transfer.

 

What faults can we fix?

We can fix graphic/display issues relating to the Nvidia 8600M / ATI X1600 models. These are fixed using the appropriate professional equipment. 

This repair is for the Nvidia Chipset found in Models A1226, A1260, A1261, A1229. If you have an ATI chipset please see our other Apple Repair Auction

                    

How do I know if I have this problem?

If your Apple Macbook Pro series has distorted/unusual graphics, Fan/DVD noises but no display, Vertical lines, Freezing, or Blank Screens the chances are it is related to the Graphics processing unit. If in doubt just ask.

Why does it happen?

Mainly due to excessive heat and heat cycles but also due to other factors stated in the article below. With some models we often find fans are clogged with fluff and dust preventing the machine cooling how it was designed.

" The failures are caused by a solder bump that connects the I/O termination of the silicon chip to the pad on the substrate. In Nvidia’s GPUs, this solder bump is created using high-lead. A thermal mismatch between the chip and the substrate has substantially grown in recent chip generations, apparently leading to fatigue cracking causing cold solder joints. Add into the equation a growing chip size (double the chip dimension, quadruple the stress on the bump) as well as generally hotter chips and you may have the perfect storm to take high lead beyond its limits. Apparently, problems arise at what Nvidia claims to be “extreme temperatures” and what we hear may be temperatures not too much above 70 degrees Celsius."

What are you bidding on?

The 'Buy it Now' Price covers the cost of returning your laptop back to you once the repair is carried out. If we cannot repair we do not charge any additional costs on top of the £11.95.

What is the total cost of the repair?

For most Nvidia based laptops the repair options are the Standard or advanced. We have listed these below for you to read and understand, although for the Apple Macbook Pro Nvidia based Models only the 'Brand New Updated Chipset Repair' is Recommended. Most sellers on ebay reflow or reball the existing chipset which, in this model will only last a few months.

Standard Repair - (not suitable for Macbook Pro Nvidia Chipsets) We offer a standard repair similar to around 95% of those repairers advertised on ebay for £89 + £11.95 Return Post, Total = £100.95

This involves re-connecting the graphics chip using existing solder - This should last as long as it has from new or longer if fans are kept clean. 

Advanced Repair - (not suitable for Macbook Pro Nvidia Chipsets) This service offers a more permanent solution and is the recommended method of stopping the problem re-occurring. The advanced repair cost is £139 + £11.95 Return Post, Total £150.95. We highly recommend this repair. Remember if you buy a brand new/second hand board it will always have the lead free solder prone to failure.

The advanced service involves removal of the Graphics chip, removing the old solder and re-fitted using new leaded solder. Leaded solder is proven not to deteriorate from the effects of heat like the current lead free solder used in manufacture.

Brand New Updated Chipset Repair - (only option we recommend for Macbook Pro Nvidia Models) This is the same procedure as the above 'Advanced Repair' but in addition we re-fit a Brand New Updated GPU Chipset that has been purposely produced by Nvidia to replace the Faulty GPU Chipset fitted to the Macbook Pro Nvidia Models. The normal cost of this service is £169 + £11.95 Return Post (UK) 


**** Special Offer - £10 off making the Updated Chipset Repair £159 + Post! ****


Please note some repair companies will say they are carrying out the advanced repair- reballing (removal of chip) but in fact do not. Ask them for a picture of your board with chip removed. We will be happy to do this. As we are aware we are the only company who are fitting updated chipsets on ebay.

Both services include dismantling, repair and re-assemby and a clean inside and out.

The repair offered above caries a 6 month warranty for the same fault occurring if a brand new updated chipset is fitted. The customer is responsible for all carriage costs.

.

 

Payment of £11.95 due before you send the laptop to us. Additional Payment for the service is required once we assess the laptop.

Please send your laptop securely packed and with a proof of signature delivery method.

We can arrange to collect also, please email regarding this.

Service takes 2-5 days
