Einleitung

The first-generation 12" Retina MacBook has a design quirk that requires connection to low-voltage power after a repair. If this step is skipped, permanent logic board damage may result. This procedure is not required for 2016 and later models.

Connecting the Retina MacBook to low-voltage power requires a 5-Watt A/C adapter (like the kind that comes with iPhones) and a USB-A to USB-C cable, neither of which is included in the MacBook's original box.

  3. Plug the charger into a surge-protected A/C outlet.
    • Plug the charger into a surge-protected A/C outlet.

    • Wait until you hear the power connect chime (you should also see the battery charge symbol onscreen).

      • You'll typically hear the chime in 10 seconds or less—unless your battery charge level is very low, in which case it may take up to 15 minutes.

    • Power on your MacBook by pressing the power button.

    • Once the MacBook successfully powers on, you can disconnect the 5 W charger, and use/charge your MacBook normally.

      • If the MacBook fails to power on after 15 minutes, there may be an issue with your repair.

I recently did an upper disassembly on my MacBook 2015 and was doing the steps for a low voltage power up but when I plugged the power in the MacBook made the startup noise for a second then restart and did it again in these short cycles. I’m wondering if I improperly did the start-up process or perhaps something else is going on?
