How to Disable/Swap faulty Temperature Sensor?
My 3,5 year old MacBook (OSX 10.9.1) stopped working last week.
After watching some videos on youtube the screen just turned gray and all I could do was to force it to shut down.
When I start the device now the screen shows briefly the Apple Logo and then I get the same gray screen.
I tried SMC and PRAM reset, booting in save and recovery mode etc. but I can't launch the OS. All I get is a gray screen. (in save mode it is black)
Only the hardware test worked. It showed this error code after the test:
After some research I found out, that this refers to a faulty temperature sensor.
So I have 2 questions:
Can you tell which sensor it is and if I can replace or fix it, OR disable it in software?
Could it be, that the problem is not caused by the faulty heat sensor but something else? Because from what I have read so far, faulty heat sensors usually cause high fan speeds and no gray start screen.
PS: sorry for bad grammar or misspellings, english is not my mother tongue.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
