today i received a call from people who told me they took their macbook pro a1502 2015 to apple service department, because it was shutting down. Apple kept it for an hour in the back and then came out and said they needed to replace logic board on it. because it was bad.
So naturally macbook pro owners got shocked and decided to come to us for a second opinion. and im glad they did.
it took me about 15 minutes to find out what was wrong with it. In fact it was actually pretty much visible to a naked eye what was wrong.
it was not a logic board failure. because if you know anything about computers you know how to figure out if logic board is really at fault.
however they Apple did none of those things. they just kept the macbook pro in the back, probably without even opening it. See their procedures is to diagnose at their best ability. and their best ability is some kids off the street filling out applications and hopefully being accepted for a summer job pretending they know how to fix computers on resume, just because they have used one and pressed some keys on it at some point in their lives!
when i looked at it, i saw almost right away that one cell of the battery looked more expanded than the others. to the point where it had some tiny marks on it, from pressing against the lid for a while.
And again, if a technician knows anything about macs, he would know almost immediately that apple batteries go bad by expanding all the time. and in this case battery was shorted out somehow and made macbook pro a1502 shut down intermittently.
when i disconnected battery and ran macbook pro on adapter power only, it was working just fine! no logic board replacement needed! voila! couple hundred dollars saved! and no need to replace parts that dont need to be replaced! imagine that!
