So many things threaten the health and safety of your laptop- their most-defining feature, portability, also lands them into precarious situations that your desktop computer (hopefully) avoids, leaving them open to spills, impacts, overheating, and falling or being dropped. Not even your MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air are impervious to the dangers of day-to-day life.
If you are a mail in customer that can’t make it to our store, we offer 24 hour repairs at no extra cost!
Here are some of the more common problems we repair on laptops:
Internal Repair Services
An impact, like that of hitting the floor, can seriously damage your MacBook, especially if it happens to be powered on at the time- motherboard failure and permanent hard drive damage are common in this situation. If you’re experiencing problems like video/sound issues, inoperative ports or kernel panics, wifi problems, overheating, or problems with shutting down of powering on, your culprit may be a logic board malfunction. We routinely perform these repairs, along with virus, malware, and spyware removal, in-house, 7 days a week.
Visual Repair Services
Shattered screens and cracked LCD displays are extremely common, and can be caused by lots of things, like being dropped, or by closing items (like a pencil or earbuds) in the laptop. We replace screens and LCDs for all models of MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air daily.
Charging Repair Services
The DC power jack can stop functioning correctly from either damage or regular use, and the symptoms are easily recognized- needing to jiggle the charging cord for the connection to be recognized, or the connection flickers in and out, or is not recognized at all; your battery (if it’s less than three years old) ceasing to charge, even though there was nothing wrong with it recently; or a jack that feels loose, has cracks around it, or looks noticeably different. This repair is not a problem for us, and can usually be completed in a day.
