Get Your MacBook Fixed!

MacBooks are known for their sleek design, powerful performance, and reliability. However, like any electronic device, they can sometimes encounter issues that require repair. In this blog, we’ll take a look at some common MacBook problems and their possible solutions.

Need help with your MacBook?

Battery issues:

One of the most common MacBook issues is a faulty battery. Symptoms of a bad battery include the battery not charging or discharging quickly, the MacBook not turning on, or the MacBook shutting down unexpectedly. If you suspect your MacBook battery is faulty, you can start by checking the battery health. You can do this by clicking on the battery icon in the menu bar and selecting “Battery Health” in the dropdown. If the battery health is poor, you may need to replace the battery. If you see the back cover of your MacBook bulging, have it looked at immediately. You can be at risk of an expanding battery, which can lead to serious injury.

Display issues:

If you notice a flickering display, dark spots, or lines on your MacBook screen, it’s likely that you’re facing a display issue. This could be caused by a faulty graphics card or a loose cable. The first thing you can try is resetting the SMC (System Management Controller). If that doesn’t work, you may need to take your MacBook to either an Apple Authorized Service Provider or one of our stores for a diagnosis.

Additionally, if your screen has sustained physical damage and is no longer displaying, our Purple Pixl stores will have the tools and knowledge to get your MacBook up and running again.

Keyboard issues:

If your MacBook keyboard is not functioning properly, it can be frustrating to use. This can happen due to debris getting stuck under the keys or a faulty keyboard. If debris is the issue, you can try cleaning the keyboard with compressed air or a soft-bristled brush. If the keyboard is faulty, you may need to get it replaced.

Overheating:

MacBooks are designed to prevent overheating, but sometimes, due to heavy usage or a faulty fan, they can overheat. When this happens, the MacBook slows down, or it may shut down entirely. To avoid this, ensure that the vents are not blocked, and the fan is functioning correctly. If the MacBook is still overheating, you may also want to see if you have any software running in the background that needs to be closed. Often, people are unaware of all the programs that have been previously installed but are no longer needed. If you are still having issues, you may need to take it to a repair center for a diagnosis.

Water damage:

If you spill liquid on your MacBook, it’s essential to act fast to prevent damage. Turn off the MacBook immediately and unplug all external devices. Wipe off any liquid on the surface and let it dry for at least 24 hours. If the MacBook does not turn on after drying, you may need to take it to a repair center.

In conclusion, while MacBooks are reliable devices, they can encounter issues that require repair. If you’re experiencing any of the problems mentioned above, try the suggested solutions, and if the problem persists, take your MacBook to any one of our locations for a diagnosis and repair.
