  • If said this on this channel and I'll say it again.. it's bad jeebees to put on the housing before you try power on the device. You should try turning it on before screwing every latest housing screws..

  • You're probably not gonna see this, but I'm just curious. I have an early 2015 13 inch Retina MBP for which I had the battery replaced by a third party due to bloating. It's fine for the most part, but the one issue I have is the fact that the HDMI port is not working. When I plug into it, the MBP display sort of flashes on and off or just remains off, and there is no display on my external monitor. I have tried all sorts of resets but nothing worked. And I know my VGA to HDMI adapter isn't the problem because it's working for my Dell work laptop, and the VGA cable itself isn't a problem because buying a Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter solved the problem. I'm just curious, what could be the cause of this, and is it worth fixing or looking into?

  • I like seeing you save these things from the landfill but feel bad for how expensive the repairs are for you in Australia. I’ve bought used MacBooks in good condition for less than the display cost you. Downside of all that ocean, I guess.

  • anyone from here knows how to check if a macbook pro has some sort of vinculation with someone icloud , bc i want to buy 1 but it seem its blocked but just by usarname and password request at the screen lady told me it doesnot ask for vinculation to recover , and also if is just bloked by someone who created a account it can bypass and change it for use ? thx also iphone six S after 14.2 battry dies so quickly is by actualization or just logic board

  • Cell phone contruction on a laptop .... I dont get why people overpay for them ... REALLY I'm sure if you can use it as a daily driver at work. I prefeer a chunky Dell Precision over this show off gadgets. All this garbage of slim led pannels, low prifile keyboards, no ports .... Yes, you get better portability, less weight when travelling. Nothing like Dell or HP havent adressed properly. The difference with HP or Dell is ... corporate ones are under big contracts of maintenance, so selling non fixable garbage is out of the equation. I have used HP 12.1 subnotebook i7, it a delight, it is fast, small, lightwieght and you can still replace the battery, the drive etc, you dont need to call nasa to do that.

  • The only thing you did in the correct way, was removing the fans and clean them inside out, the rest was crap and unprofessional. I don't want to spread hate or negativity, but I would never send you thing’s to restore for me and even pay you money for it, you fix things in a way, so they can keep working a little more and that's it, even for educational purpose, this is not right because other who watches your videos, can learn the wrong way doing it from you, and then we would have a bunch of wrong restores who destroy more than actually fix it.

  • Apple is a terrible company who attempts to control everything that happens with the device from purchase to eventual retirement of the device. All the while, they're putting the bill for everything on the user, and adding a ridiculous fee for their "experts" and their "premium parts". I will never buy an Apple product, and I feel sorry for the people who were sucked into the "Apple is best" mindset.
