Einleitung

Diese Anleitung zeigt, wie du das blanke Logic Board ersetzen kannst. Du musst alle Bauteile, die mit ihm verbunden sind, abbauen.

  1. Entferne die 10 Schrauben, die das obere und das untere Gehäuse zusammenhalten.
    • Entferne die 10 Schrauben, die das obere und das untere Gehäuse zusammenhalten.

      • Drei 13,5 mm (14,1 mm) Kreuzschlitz Schrauben.

      • Sieben 3 mm Kreuzschlitz Schrauben.

    Step 1 (technically step 9 - replacing the base plate) Apparently one of my screws was a micron or two smaller than the others. This screw belongs to the hole above the optical drive, which is also apparently a couple of microns smaller than the others. It took seven attempts to figure which screw had originally been in that hole; all the other screws were too large, but fitted perfectly everywhere else.

    Bizarre much?

    Will - Antwort

    It might be a matter of how the screws are driven in, and not that they're slightly different sizes. When I reassembled my MacBook, a couple of the screws, including the one over the optical drive you mention, were hard to drive in and jutted up a little bit instead of sitting entirely flush. Swapping screws didn't help. The solution was to unscrew them and drive them in at a bit of an angle - perpendicular to the slightly curved surface of the back plate where the screw holes were, instead of fully vertical with respect to the ground the Macbook is sitting on. Doing it that way, the screws were easier to drive in and they all ended up flush in their holes. Didn't matter which screws they were. (I swapped a few around just to check after reading this.)

    Andrew Janke -

    I had no such screw issues. Either there are differences in manufacturing lots or I just got incredibly lucky during reassembly!

    xtophr -

    I discovered a great way of organizing the screws. I used an ice cube tray and added the screws in order, keeping the different kinds together. So when it came to reversing the steps, the screw order was an added control step to returning everything in its place.

    leonie - Antwort

    Great advise! Love it! :)

    Ririds -

    I used to do that and that worked really great until I bumped it by accident and the entire tray went on the rug! I spent the next day sorting things out.

    Now I use these:

    http://www.sciplus.com/p/50-114-CLEAR-PL...

    The lower ones 50 to a package. I mark them w/ blue tape. Often if it's part like the fans, or the optical drive I'll tape the screws into/near the holes where they belong. I did this a lot especially w/ the bottom screws from MBPs until I'd done so many I knew exactly where the longer ones went.

    Richard Sato -

    I wrapped the screws in a piece of blue masking tape and wrote the number on the little pouch I made. Then I stuck the blue tape pouches on the underside of the case bottom in order.

    Roscoe -

    I take double-sided tape, put that on a piece of paper, stick the crews to that, and label them.

    jelimoore -

    Best I've found is a bead sorting tray. They're like $5 at Wal-Mart and they have a lid that seals up and won't let them jump between containers.

    maccentric -

    I take a sheet of paper, pierce the screws through the paper, take a pen and box the screws and write out what step they belong to.

    Nils -

    @Will, in my case I had the same result as you did. As a reminder to myself the next time I need to open the computer, I put a dot of white paint on those two screw's head and a very, very thin ring of white on the very edge of each hole, that way I'll know they go into those two holes.

    Roger - Antwort

    Actually the four screws on the bottom were not threaded all the way up. I didn't check to see if the thread gauge was the same on them, but it wasn't until I had about four screws out (I didn't take them out in the order that the bottom all came out first) that I noticed a difference. I then took out the rest of the bottom ones to see if they matched the two that were already out that weren't threaded to the top. They did. So I went under the assumption that those were all bottom screws and when I put it back together everything went fine with no resistance.

    So there are three types of screws: Four for the bottom, three long ones as indicated and three others that might be slightly smaller than the bottom ones.

    wresnick - Antwort

    Hi,

    Although its more than a year since your contribution, I thought you might be amused to know that it is not just that the screws go in more easily when at an angle, Apple actually drilled and tapped the holes at a 15% angle. I too had tried to drive them in straight. An Apple "genius" - I was in for something else - clarified the design for me. It was done so that the screws lay flush on the angled part of the lower case. Nice design, but since Apple encourages DIY memory and drive changes, they could have mentioned this little ... trap.

    1982sketcher -

    Hey everyone, here's the very best way to PERFECTLY organize your screws AND keep track of the order of the procedure: Get a piece of plain corrugated cardboard and a pen (I like using a Sharpie). For EACH step of the disassembly, draw a simple diagram of the layout of the computer on the piece of cardboard, with dots or Xs where the screws are located. Right after you remove each screw from the computer, poke a hole in the cardboard in its corresponding diagram position with your screwdriver and place the screw in that hole. If there are other non-screw related parts to be removed, you can add notes below each step diagram to remind you of where they go or how they should be placed. This cardboard method is great not only because your screws will not go flying or get mixed up by accident if bumped, but each screw goes EXACTLY back where it came from and you can keep the cardboard as a template for future use if necessary!

    These instructions worked great for me. I ordered a replacement battery from Key Power (on Amazon) for my 15" Macbook Pro (mid-2010). Cost was $74 shipped.

    Battery came with 3 different screwdrivers to help with installation. I just needed the one size though, since my 2010 seemed to use all the same size screws.

    Thanks!

    Marcos - Antwort

    During re-assembling (put the screws back in), it is important to note that the 3mm threaded holes are not completely vertical, but bent a little bit such that the hole direction is rectangular to the tapered surface. The force of the screwdriver must point towards the direction of the hole. Otherwise the screw gets jammed

    kusi - Antwort

    There is a FOOLPROOF WAY TO ORGANIZE ALL SCREWS and other parts removed.

    Print the repair guide.

    Yes, the actual photo of the bottom of the laptop with the circles around the screws.

    When you remove the screw, tape it to the photograph.

    You will tape the screw to the exact location that you just removed it from.

    Same thing with any part you remove.

    Thanks Splash!!! I used your suggested method, and it was perfect: kept all my screws, and i was able to, very easily, put them back in their correct place. I greatly appreciated your feedback. Thank you for sharing!!

    Tommy Kedar -

    Thank you!!! This worked fabulously - even the I.T. people at my workplace were excited as they never thought to do that before. Replacing the battery took about 10 minutes!

    Worked like a charm! Took less than 20 minutes.

    It's Oct. 2015, and the fan cost me about $10. it was the same brand/model...

    SUNON MG62090V1-Q020-S99 .

    SOME TRICKS -

    1- no T6 screwdriver- was careful using needle nose players to loosen 2 screws protruding up, then use a small phillips to push real hard into the T6 slots, SLOWLY turn , also used a small flat head screwdriver (for eye glass repair) was able to grab thread on T6's, made a small mark with screw driver across the top so I could see when it started to turn.

    2- no spudger -made one; cut a little strip 1/2" x 1 1/2" of plastic. couldn't get it to slide under plug, there's an edge where plug fits. so lifted old fan out, pulled upward on the plug it popped right out with very little effort. I used my home made spudger to push the new plug into place.

    3- download free "Macs Fan Control" This is how I was alerted to the fan not working in the first place. Program shows temperature of all key components in the computer.

    cheers- Durango CO!

    Please be aware that you CAN do this replacement with MUCH LESS work. I successfully replaced a trackpad (TP) in this model WITHOUT removing a lot of what is described here. I think i mainly removed the logic board (LB) anchor screws along the TP side and was then able to lever up the LB just enough to get the cable unplugged and snaked out. Followed the reverse and done. Maybe not for all, but it worked for me. // Re screws: i print out the images here of the multi-screws locations and then tape the screws in place on the print-out.

    Is it necessary to ground oneself to prevent static damage to logic board, etc. when replacing the speakers?

    If so, what is the best way to do this?

    Do you wear wrist strap designed for this purpose? To what metal object do you attach the clip and wire? I’m assuming the aluminum case isn’t going to work.

    Sibyl Smith - Antwort

    I will be buying a battery from you and using your instructions. I just installed a new CD/DVD using your instructions and 1) I feel like I owe you something and 2) Although more expensive, I have the confidence your battery will work. My current battery is the original with 1399 cycles in 7.2 yrs. A tech buddy had bought me a replacement and I installed it. I had just installed a new OS and the kernel_task went going nuts, using 90% of the CPU. Hours on the phone with Apple did not resolve the issue. On a whim, I put the old battery back in and Voila! But I cannot risk my battery swelling and going south on me. I am also going to buy your installation tools. Yeah, I already have them. But you can never have enough tools…or beer. And you don’t sell beer.

    • Der Akku ist mit zwei 7,4 mm TriPoint-Schrauben am oberen Gehäuse befestigt. Drehe sie heraus.

    • Beachte: Bei bestimmten Reparaturen (z.B der Festplatte) ist es nicht nötig den Akku zu entfernen. Es verhindert aber versehentliche Kurzschlüsse in der Elektronik auf dem Logic Board. Wenn du den Akku nicht entfernst, sei besonders vorsichtig, da Teile auf dem Logic Board unter Strom stehen könnten.

    • Du musst nicht unbedingt den Schritten 3-6 folgen, um für einen Austausch der Festplatte den Akku auszubauen. Es ist aber grundsätzlich empfohlen Spannungsquellen zu entfernen, bevor man an elektronischen Schaltungen arbeitet.

    A 1/16th flathead screwdriver easily removes the tri-wing screws in this step. I could not find a Y0 Tri-wing driver at any local stores.

    Jon Daniels - Antwort

    I'd like to add that for me, a 1/16th flathead screwdriver did NOT allow me to remove the tri-wing screws holding the battery in place. After several careful attempts, it became obvious I was perilously close to stripping the screw(s), so I abandoned the attempt to unscrew the tri-wing screws with a flathead screwdriver altogether. As it turned out, I didn't need to remove the battery to do what I needed to do (keyboard replacement), but it would have been a whole lot easier had the battery been easily removable.

    dave - Antwort

    The Tri-wing screw driver is impossible to find in retail, amazon and ebay are great bets but they vary wildly in quality... I ordered two, and both were so cheap, and barely got the job done. It could be worth getting it here. When you do get it, make sure you push, the Y0 screws were very tight in my macbook, pressing hard prevents you from stripping the Y screw.

    Abe - Antwort

    I believe they are Y1 screws, no?

    Short of taking out the battery is there something else I can do to protect the motherboard?

    Bruce Bell - Antwort

    What worked for me was actually a set of needlenose pliers - the heads on those screws aren't flush, they actually stick out enough that it's possible to turn them from the outside. Caused some scuff marks on the finish of the screws but it's not like anyone's going to see them anyway!

    oboewan42 - Antwort

    A tri-wing screwdriver sold as 'for Nintendo Wii' marked 'HFA 360/ x50' did the job. I replaced the screws with standard-head M2x6mm metric screws (M2 = 2 mm thread, 6 mm length of threaded part). Exactly, I took them out of an old hard-disk (with torx head and slightly shorter).

    akronymus - Antwort

    It says "Note: For certain repairs (e.g. hard drive), removing the battery is not necessary but it prevents any accidental shorting of electronics on the motherboard." This is obviously a boilerplate instruction that is not appropriate for a repair guide.

    Well, DO you have to remove the battery? IS this one of those repairs where it's "not necessary but prevents accidental shorting"?

    Obviously, this instruction is boilerplate text that accompanies almost all the repair guides-- but there shouldn't be boilerplate text there, since this is a specific guide for replacing the Magsafe DC-in jack and not the harddrive.

    • Entferne die letzte 7,4 mm TriPoint-Schraube, die den Akku am oberen Gehäuse befestigt.

    Is removing the battery necessary?

    bname - Antwort

    It is not strictly necessary. As mentioned above, removing the battery is the only way to be sure that no parts of the logic board are electrified. It is very easy to replace the hard drive without removing the battery, but it is safer to remove the battery first.

    Daniel Brauer -

    Note: removing the battery can cause a hitch with OS X 10.9 Mavericks installation to a blank drive, or at least it did for me.

    Disconnecting the battery makes the hardware clock reset to something like Jan 1, 2000. This causes the Mavericks installer to fail its self-check with the error message: "This copy of the Install OS X Mavericks application can't be verified. It may have been corrupted or tampered with during downloading."

    To fix this, you need to open up Terminal from the Utilities menu in the bootable OS X installer environment and use the `date` command to set your Mac's clock back to the correct time before proceeding with the "Install OS X" menu selection, as described here: http://blog.mconserv.net/2013/10/install...

    I'm having the same problem as previous commenters: the battery now drains much faster. It's the original factory unit—I only replaced the HD, which is working great.

    Is there something I am missing with the battery reconnection? Maybe it's loose?

    I just want to make sure before I crack open my laptop again.

    cmalec722 - Antwort

    Fast battery drain problems might be due to a corrupted power manager circuit on the logic board. To reset it, remove the battery, press the power button for about 5-10 seconds, then reinstall the battery. I know the problem might have been partly due to removing the battery in the first place, but this is the procedure for resetting what might have gone wrong. It might also help to do a PRAM reset, by holding down Command-Option-P-R at power (not just from a restart), and let the Macbook chime twice after its initial powerup chime.

    Je vais juste vous surprendre car je suis français.

    JI'll just surprise you because I am French .

    I understood the problem of the left fan. In fact the problem is with the design at Apple. The fan housing is too narrow vertically a few tenths of millimeters. This is why so many problems . The left fans deteriorate very quickly.

    The solution is very simple. Buy a new fan in China, it is the cheapest and level it's very fast delivery . Warning it comes fan already used but in good condition.

    The thing to do is to over- raise the fan does not rub and deteriorating. To do so just buy a zinc washer 3 mm diameter available from my local hardware store ( € 3 for 70 pieces ) and place it under the black screw fully right and top right . The over- elevation leads to no longer have friction effect.

    Thats ALL !!!

    I successfully removed my right fan, cleaned it and installed it back. But when it came to the left one I accidentally broke the connector from the logic board. Now I'm left with only one functioning fan. I'm using an external laptop fan. Do I have to replace the whole logic board or can it be fixed somehow? My temp is between 90-95 C when I run a heavy game.

    cemcatikkas - Antwort

    Ditto. It seems very tricky to reinsert the keyboard ribbon.

    GrooveStomp - Antwort

    I just did this - it is kinda tricky. The ribbon cable has a flap on top that is designed solely to help you coax the cable back into the socket....don't make the mistake I did and spend an hour trying to feed this flap through the socket. What worked for me was a combination of using the flap with my fingers and tweezers on the actual cable to reinsert it into the socket. Took a few tries, but I got the cable re-inserted, pressed down on the tiny locking thing, and the keyboard cable was in and secured.

    dave - Antwort

    Indeed, it is difficult to insert the keyboard ribbon cable. It will stop after about 1mm of insertion. It needs to go in quite a bit further. Angling it slightly, you may be able to get a corner to go in, then straighten the ribbon while applying forward pressure. I reassembled it a few times with that sinking feeling on startup before I realized that it wasn't really making contact!

    dennishodge - Antwort

    I've replaced the keyboard, so reinserting the ribbon was particularly tricky. After several failed attempts, here's what finally dawned on me... I took a piece of scotch tape, maybe an inch long. I folded on end on itself, maybe a quarter inch from the top. That left a sticky zone and a non-sticky zone on the tape. I taped it to the ribbon, and was able to use the tape and a "handle" to pull the ribbon into the socket. Afterwards, I carefully removed the tape without pulling the ribbon out of the socket.

    Bryan Chun - Antwort

    This was the hardest part for me. Be sure you flip the release flap up before removing or re-inserting.

    Jonathan Daiello - Antwort

    This might be obvious to some, but for those for whom it is not, this info is very important. First: only the ribbon is what needs to be pulled out (and inserted later on) not any of the black plastic casing. Second: before you try to pull the ribbon out, you need to flip up the release flap so its vertical (this is the thin black part that is located on the top edge of the black casing). If you don’t do this you will damage the casing or the ribbon or both.

    There's a bracket / handle clip attached to the display port. I didn't know it was there and accidentally bent it off. Can't get it back on, but it seems to work OK without it.

    • Klappe die Halteklammer am Anschluss des Flachbandkabels der Tastaturbeleuchtung mit der Spitze des Spudgers oder deinem Fingernagel hoch.

    • Achte darauf, dass du wirklich nur die scharnierartige Klappe, nicht den Sockel selbst hochklappst.

    • Ziehe das Flachbandkabel der Tastaturbeleuchtung aus seinem Sockel.

    I couldn’t see the flap as mine was already popped up. Try looking at it from the side to get a better view of the state of yours.

    • Drehe folgende Schrauben heraus:

      • Sieben 3,3 mm T6 Torx Schrauben, die das Logic Board am oberen Gehäuse befestigen.

      • Zwei 8 mm T6 Torx Schrauben, die das DC-In Board am oberen Gehäuse befestigen.

    • Entferne das Logic Board noch nicht! Es gibt noch Bauteile auf seiner Unterseite, die mit dem oberen Gehäuse verbunden sind und erst noch getrennt werden müssen.

    • Hebe die ganze Einheit mit dem Logic Board vorsichtig auf der linken Seite an und aus dem oberen Gehäuse heraus. Achte dabei darauf, dass sich die Ports nicht verfangen.

    • Entferne das Logic Board immer noch nicht ganz!

    I just took one apart that had some pretty strong adhesive holding the speaker onto the upper case. I had to slip a spudger underneath and pry it up, else it was going to overly bend the mobo before it would release.

    My board was stuck to the bottom plastic. I had to gently release it by pushing the black plastic beneath the board down, while carefully moving the board upward.

    • Hebe das Board soweit an, dass du mit einem Spudger das Mikrofon aus dem oberen Gehäuse hebeln kannst.

    On this step, the microphone was attached to the board so the whole unit lifted off easily.

    Mine was too; it was part of the speaker assembly, a much better arrangement.

    • Ziehe das Logic Boards Port-Öffnungen weg und hebe die Einheit aus dem oberen Gehäuse.

    • Bevor du das Logic Board wieder einbaust, ist es am einfachsten, wenn du das Mikrofon in seine Öffnung im linken Lautsprecher wieder eindrückst, damit es an seinen Platz bleibt.

    • Um einen Schaden durch elektrostatische Entladungen zu vermeiden, achte darauf, dass das Logic Board während der Reparatur auf einer weichen antistatischen Oberfläche liegt.

    After prying off the mic from the top case and carefully lifting the logic board, I realized there was still a wire connected near the display connector, under the board. I was able to disconnect it but I'm wondering if I missed something or if this cable is missing from the instructions. The wire was connected under the board so it could not be disconnected before removing the board.

    This is the magsafe cable. Step 23 details removing the torx screws holding the magsafe board in place. If you remove the screws, you don't need to remove the cable.

    • Lege das Logic Board auf eine weiche ebene Fläche mit dem Kühlkörper nach oben.

    • Entferne sechs Torx T6 Schrauben, die den Kühlkörper am Logic Board befestigen.

    • Achte darauf, die kleinen Federn unter jeder Schraube nicht zu verlieren.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Entferne den Kühlkörper vom Logic Board.

    • Wenn der Kühlkörper noch zu klemmen scheint, obwohl alle sechs Schrauben entfernt wurden, kannst du ihn mit einem Spudger ablösen.

    • Wenn du später den Kühlkörper wieder befestigst, schaue in unsere Anleitung zum Auftragen von Wärmeleitpaste, das macht es leichter.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Wenn nötig, musst du das Mikrofon aus seinem Sitz im Gehäuse des linken Lautsprechers heben.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Entferne die beiden 5 mm Kreuzschlitzschrauben, die den linken Lautsprecher am Logic Board festhalten.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Wenn vorhanden, musst du das kleine schwarze Klebeband lösen, das den Verbinder des linken Lautsprechers bedeckt.

    • Ziehe vorsichtig die Drähte des linken Lautsprechers hoch, um den Verbinder des linken Lautsprechers aus seinem Sockel auf dem Logic Board zu heben.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Ziehe die Mikrofonkabel vorsichtig hoch, um den Verbinder des Mikrofons aus seinem Sockel auf dem Logic Board zu lösen.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Ziehe die Kabel der Gleichspannungsversorgung (DC-in) in Richtung auf des Kühlerkörpers, um die DC-in Platine aus ihrem Sockel auf dem Logic Board zu lösen.

    • Ziehe die Kabel parallel zur Oberfläche des Logic Boards.

    • Löse die Klammern auf jeder Seite des RAM, indem du sie gleichzeitig vom RAM weg drückst.

    • Die Klammern halten den Chip fest, wenn du sie löst wird der Chip "herausspringen".

    • Wenn der RAM Chip herausgesprungen ist, kannst du ihn direkt aus seinem Sockel ziehen.

    • Wiederhole das Ganze, wenn ein zweiter RAM Chip installiert ist.

    • Das Logic Board bleibt allein zurück.

    • Wenn du später den Kühlkörper wieder montieren willst, benötigst du dazu Wärmeleitpaste. Unsere Anleitung zum Auftrag von Wärmeleitpaste macht das Anbringen leicht.

    I broke one of the clips that secures the memory in the "down" position when replacing the RAM. Is there any way to replace just this part? I tried removing the 4 screws that appear to connect the fastener to the logic board but had not luck removing the piece. Any ideas?

    Don’t forget to turn the logic board over (as pictured) first!

As long as the logic board is from a 15” mid 2010 it will fit

Sandy - Antwort

Position of battery connector and keyboard/touchpad is slightly different. So I will say w/o replacing battery and upper case most likely - no. At list it doesn’t work when I try it. Ended buying on ebay macbookpro9.1 with dead screen for $300 and installing my screen on it. (however should mention Wi-Fi/Bluetooth antennas should be replaced to)

IF you will go for it, replace Airport card too to have ac capability and bluetooth 4.0 (something like BCM94331PCIEBT4CAX Airport WIFI+Bluetooth 4.0 Card)

Dear all,

I have a MacBook Pro Mid 2010 and I need some help from expert please.

SamerR - Antwort

Had this crazy experience that after having replaced the logic board my laptop did not want to boot from the SSD - just got the gray screen with the blinking folder icon. The same ssd booted happily on another laptop. Stuffed in an old drive with El Captain, no problem booting from that drive, so computer was working. Then spend some hours upgrading the El Captain to High Sierra, ran all the updates. Attached the original ssd again and ask to restart the laptop, it worked.

Not sure what this indicates, except that I am very happy I had that old drive lying around!

gtangt - Antwort

could have had a few more close up pictures and larger ones on the connectors and locks to see what they looked like missed some on the reassembly used a magnify glass to see what they looked like to lock them in correctly
