Hi, The issue is that you dried out your laptop before getting it cleaned or looked at. Drying it out sped up the process of corrosion on the components that are on your motherboard. When water and copper (motherboard) are mixed with electricity you get corrosion that does not stop and needs to be cleaned in order for the corrosion to stop eating away at the tiny solder points on your Motherboard. Take it to your nearest shop that does SMD soldering and see if they can clean it or fix it.
Hi there and sorry that you had a technician try and fix a waterlogged phone. While it is possible to fix a phone that has been exposed to water I never do it unless I see that the water only “touched” a very few places. The reason I only fix Water Damaged phone for the sake of data recovery and not to save the phone is for the exact reason why your phone is lagging. No honest technician that has your best interest in mind would try and fix a water damaged phone for your use. In very few circumstances would I do that. As I mentioned before I’d have to completely feel 99.9% sure that only part of the logic board or flex connector actually got wet. The reason for this is that there are so many components on the phone that might fail even after a sonic cleaning and an alcohol bath. Why would I risk your data and your well being and give you a phone back that could fail. IMO that’s not good business. Sorry that you are having this issue but I’d just take it back to the tech and ask for your money back and then...
Get a small sewing needle wrap the dull end in tape (masking, duct, etc.) then heat up the sharp tip with a lighter. Now shove the needle as deep as you can into the sim card. Wait for it to cool then pull the needle and sim card out together.
I know what it is. It is one of the 10uf Capacitors. On a 27HD there is a video. Yours might be slightly different but this is a common failure. Here is the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQtBlS2T... Basically you have 1-6 caps on a board that are easily testable. One or more of them has shorted to ground. Removing the shorted one will actually get it to work. There are more caps than needed (typical of every electronic) that being said it would be better to replace it. I know it’s a 10uf smd cap but don’t know the voltage. :(
I’d say anything is possible but in my search I could not find the battery for these anywhere. Also these products are usually glued together so getting them open might be easy but getting them to close might be a whole other ball of wax.
First things first. Check that you properly inserted the display cable. Even if you did check again. If in fact you did damage the Display Data cable then you should not power on your iMac any longer because you could be sending voltage to places it’s not suppossed to go. Luckily the guys here @ifixit.com can get you a replacement and show you how to do it too. iMac Intel 27" EMC 2546 & 2639 Display Data Cable iMac Intel 27" EMC 2639 Display Replacement In my experience what you’ve shown in the pics looks more like a display issue instead of a cable but I’d first replace the cable! Happy fixing!
Hi, The first thing you should do is backup your iPhone then do a restore. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201252 Also get a wooden toothpick and clean out your headphone jack. Do NOT use a paper clip or anything metal.
This iMac specifically has GPU issues. Not saying that that is what is happening but you could be on the verge of having a GPU issue. Things that might have started that is if you installed new SSD without setting up someway to keep it cool like Mac’s fan control or installing the special cable that monitors the SSD TEMP and connects it the Logic Board. My guess is you GPU could be on it’s way out. Do an easy restore of just your OS and see if the issue is fixed. Maybe the install you did on the new SSD is corrupt in some way. Worth a try to get rid of variables. Update (03/12/2019): Hi. To reinstall the operating system really all you have to do is hold down the command key and the R key To restart in recovery mode. Can you have the option to re-install whatever operating system is installed on your Mac. This will only re-install the base operating system and leave all of your files and applications in tact. Sometimes in order for your applications to work properly you might need to do a couple of updates...
