FWIW, in May or June this happened to me and so I called Apple expressing my being a loyal customer and wanting to keep it that way, if they'd be willing to honor the repair for my "vintage" MBP that would be an act of good faith on their part.
He actually found a spare logic board and had it shipped to a local Apple Store. I bought thermal paste to apply to my MBP to prevent the heat issues as well as in case of another repair for my I might buy an extra logic board just in case. That way if this GPU goes out I can put in the logic board while repairing the defective one with heat, thermal paste, or whatever the DIY repairs advise there's a handful of them out there.
Point is, some research on the class action lawsuit, and catching the flies with honey I told the supervisor I'd send him a glowing review to his superior led to a replaced logic board even though my early MBP was "vintage". TFix tfixrepairs.
Posted: Oct 5, Hey, you can find a company which specialises in soldering BGA components. It should be fairly easy for them to upgrade your GPU with a version, which isn't plagued with overheating issues. The repair is very cost effective and eliminates the issue completely. Changing the logic board will likely cause the issue to come back.
The only rub here is you can't use a different series chip as the board is designed for a given chip need to use the exact same GPU chip. So the answer is No you can't swap it out with something different. Besides often when the GPU goes some of the support chips also go so it often needs a bit more than the one chip.
The bottom line here this is to advance a repair for a DIY person, hence swapping out the logic board is the way to go. Besides you would want someone who does this level of work to have done quite a few of these boards i. Oct 5, by Dan. I changed my logic board luckily for free.. Every time it switches it collapses. Now I understand why some people were claming it's just a 5 min soldering and it's fixed while my Apple guys said no worry, we couldn't just solder it, we had to replace the logic board.
Sep 12, by Daniele. Daniele - It's really both! AMD used a flip chip design which has soldered connections within the chip its self that shear as the system is heated and cooled. Then you have the crappy Lead-free solder Apple used to solder the chip one of the places a bit of Lead in the solder would be useful And then again for not having a more effective cooling system.
But its also US! This gets into the differences between a Laptop Vs Desktop as we think they can do the same thing sadly they can't always do the same as well or as long. Oct 25, by Dan. I have the problem, twice, as Daniele The most demanding things I've been doing lately is is connecting the laptop to external screens.
AMD, and of course, Apple since it the one selling you the laptop, are completely responsible for the mess. Even more, when it happened once and the happens again, instead of fix it for good. Dec 4, by Luis Puerto. However, much more seldom. I can still work with heavy workloads. Mar 24, by Atle Bakken. Show 7 more comments. Posted: Oct 18, They returned it within two weeks. It would not boot from the SSD and only booted once from the backup sata drive.
I contacted the outfit and they claimed it was fully tested and burned in etc. Hi, I would like to note that the solder isn't the main problem and it's only one of them. The one and only solution is to change GPU with updated model, which operates at lower temperatures. People selling their services on eBay are usually a one man company and most likely will provide bad after sale service.
Oct 18, by TFix. I've had my logic board replaced twice and its failing again. Dec 14, by The Fish. May 16, by TFix. Ya exactly - where? Since the Apple quality program ended Dec 31, there will be no more extended warranty replacement logic boards that only lasted about two years after the swap anyway.
Oct 10, by blake. Bryan Carney. Explains how to put the logic board in the oven and lots of people clalm it worked. It's the solder not the chip it seems. Lots of people think the world is flat. Lots of rats and cockroaches live in New York City but that does not make them the dominate life form there yes, I know is this is debatable. Oct 25, by mayer. Mar 23, by Aiden. Pushing the laptop to to point it needs extra cooling it the sure sign the system is being pushed beyond what it was designed to do.
Aug 20, by Dan. I will be baking the MLB in the next day or two. For those of you who are reluctant, I will tell you that how Logic Boards are made. A blank board with all the traces is fed into a huge machine that lays all the components onto one side of the board. The board then goes through a Wave-Solider machine that heats that side of the board up to the solider melting point, thus soldiering all components in one pass.
The boards are tested and if pass, go to another machine that lays down the other side. Then goes through a wave soldering machine again doing the same thing. So if the defect is due to a bad solider connection, reheating the board as instructed has very little risk to the board other than fixing the solider issue. Oct 15, by David Watson. NOTE: Rapped cool down of the logic board is one thing that can cause further damage to the logic board.
So follow the instructions to the "T"! Don't ever shut the door once the board is in and just turn off the oven at the end of the time and let it cool down naturally with the door cracked open. If it doesn't fix the issue you can try it again. One of my Mac mini's needed a 2nd bake to fix the issue.
David macgraphics. Posted: Jul 14, Do you really want to keep throwing money at an 8 year old computer? However, if it meets your needs, go for it. There are postings at other sites that show you a Terminal command that disables the problem AMD chip and then only the built-in but less capable Intel graphics chip is used - but the AMD problems go away.
I also found a YouTube that says the underlying problem is NOT the graphics chip and solder joints, etc but a near-by capacitor on the logic board that eventually fails from over-heating - he walks you through replacing it with a sturdier capacitor and demonstrates how it fixes the problems - this same brand capacitor is also the cause of similar problems on other MacBooks falsely ascribed to the graphics chip. Do you care sharing the specific links for the terminal and capacitor solutions?
I actually followed the "bake it in the oven method" and it did fix the problem to my surprise , although I don't know for how long. Jul 14, by Montag Ero. The capacitor YouTube person placed his soldering gun on the problem capacitor which temporarily fixed the problem seems counter intuitive.
He claimed the oven baking solution is not fixing the solder joints but heating up this capacitor which temporarily fixes the issues. Please give me a few days to track down the links. Jul 14, by David. The links - Google and YouTube searches on these topics will yield additional info. I have not tried these nor are endorsing them. No idea if the same thing works or not, just wanted to clarify. Aug 4, by Orionxl. Ankit Prashar. Posted: Sep 2, Sadly its time for a logic board swap out.
You need very specialized tools to de-solder and then re-solder the GPU onto the logic board. Sep 2, by Dan. As to this being a big issue, nope its not. We have over systems in this series and we've only had three that needed a new logic board due to a bad GPU luckily they were still covered under warranty. My GPU died, and to my surprise and glee, the Apple Store "genius" told me it was covered under Apple's quality assurance program. So I had a free replacement installed there in the store.
They couldn't ship mine out for faster repair because of my aftermarket upgrades. So if you still have your old MacBook, it may be salvageable if you have an Apple Store in driving distance. Oct 23, by mediaconnect. How old was your MacBook Pro when you brought it in? The graphics card no idea which one on my early just died this morning. Jan 25, by karieeleison. So, so upset, my mac book pro has died and Apple are saying it's the faulty graphics card that's caused the problem!
Other than this the computer was in perfect order. I'm told that Apple have stopped providing the fix? Why oh why did Apple not offer this fix when I dropped my computer in for repair in ? Why did they not send a fxxxing email to their "valued customer" to say I'd bought a faulty product?
Another mis selling scam?? Can anyone advise if there is anyway to fix this? Can anyone recommend somewhere I can bring the laptop to safely retrieve the data? This product was a huge investment for me, it will be a longtime before I can afford a new computer. I have all of my photos of my 4yr old on the computer of course I have backup but I have nothing to view on. Any advice would be very welcome. Can take a claim against them?
Through trading standards for example? May 20, by grace omolloy. Show 8 more comments. Atle Bakken atlebakken. Posted: Jan 31, It might be time to reinstate the Class action Lawsuit which initiated the Apple callback in the first place. I think And like the good people mention above here, Apple has pulled their deal. They said I have a new paperweight Jan 13, by ddandees. Ted ted Posted: Sep 20, Once a new logic board is put in, does the OS and all the programs need to be re-registered with their manufacturers, since a new logic board is basically a different computer with its new ID?
Also, besides just providing a funtioning graphics card, what other benefits will a newer logic board like from a model provide for a late MBP? The boards will fit into the top case. You will just need to shave down the sides of the LVDS cable cable that runs from the LCD to the logic board in order to make it fit the board.
Works great! Jul 15, by blake. Posted: Apr 26, The problem in general is the AMD graphic card, you can find the chip itself on ebay. But you have to replace it also with your damged chip. So you have to look for a company who does that. Try google 'macbook pro video card replacment shop' or if your up to it try a liitle coding as an altenative fix. Carloshdj gmail. Posted: Aug 19, Dan: I'm afraid you're wrong. It is possible to change the defective GPU for a 2nd generation one.
There is no 2nd generation GPU. Apple's repair program was just a swap out of the same chip. The chips that where failing were a bad lot. So you are only getting a different lot chip. AMD has long since stopped production of the chip and its just not available as new. All you're getting is a recycled chip if that. So this sounds like a ripoff! I would suspect all they are doing is heating the chip hoping the chip comes back to life just long enough for you to give up.
And, lastly you need specialized equipment which most repair shops just don't have. Nicholas milwaukeemax. Posted: Jun 3, Dan, stop discouraging those who would like to try to replace their GPUs. You keep saying "no, you can't do it", which is a complete pile of B.
There has been a long history of software released by Apple for the MBP. If you plan to replace an older MBP, you will recognize that these versions include:. Retina display is a term coined by Apple, and it is one of the features of the Apple MacBook. This type of high-definition screen has a dense pixel concentration.
In some computers, that density can reach pixels per square inch. This achieves smoother images, streamlined lines, and a crisp picture quality. Content provided for informational purposes only.
