Only an expert in Apple devices will know if your device requires a logic board repair.
What is a logic board?
The term “Logic board” was coined by Apple in the early 1980s for the motherboards in their Macintosh computers. Consequently, the phrase stuck and as a result, they are still called logic boards in your iPhone, iPad and Mac to this day despite being basically the same thing as a motherboard.
A logic board repair is like a repair to the nervous system of your device. In other words, it repairs the electrical connections by which the other components and peripherals of the computer communicate. Similarly, a logic board hosts the central processing unit, the memory controller, and allows for the transfer of information to devices like a hard drive so, a repair can also effect these as well.
There are a few signs that may indicate a logic board repair is required.
Some common things motherboard damage causes your Apple device to do…
- Your device will not turn on even after being charged on a working charger.
- Even after replacing the battery, your device will not turn off.
- The device is turning on and off sporadically.
- Your device is on but the display screen is going haywire.
- When your device is on, the display screen is not showing up at all.
How will I know for sure?
The only way to know what’s really going on is to open up the device and take a look.
Anytime the logic board is damaged you either need an entirely new logic board (yes, it’s as expensive as it sounds), OR you need a logic board repair. Clearly, the second option is much less expensive than a new logic board, new iPhone, iPad or Mac.
