Extreme Torture Testing on a Macbook Air

Just when you thought you’ve seen it all, the internet continues to deliver. Here is a video we found while looking up Macbook Air fixes and it’s pretty cool. First she throws the Macbook Air in a freezer, next she tries to kill it with fire. Finally she drowns it, and the thing simply wont die. If they keep Making Macbooks and PCs like this, there’s not going to be any computers to repair in Schaumburg. Macbook Airs are known for being really flimsy, hard to fix, and terribly difficult to get parts for. Fortunately, if you do have a problem with your Macbook Air, you can bring it to Zombie Techs computer repair in Schaumburg. We fix at least 3-4 Macbooks a week so we’ve pretty much seen it all as far as these machines are concerned. Most of the time Macbooks come in for accidental damage from falling or getting punched accidentally. That means the most common types of repairs are screen replacements. The screens have a history of breaking pretty frequently as a result of getting warped inside of backpacks and carrying cases.

Most Common Problems with Macbook Air

Based on an article we found on Digital Trends, one of the most common problems with the Macbook Air is a power on or charging problem. Often times your Macbook will not power on if an update has frozen it and put it into sleep mode. In other cases, the power cord have be failing or the Macbook may need to be reset completely. At times, electro-static discharge can prevent the Macbook from turning on. If ESD is preventing you from getting your Macbook on, get to a grounded surface and try powering it on there. If that still doesn’t work you may need to see the Zombie Techs for a quick look. Problems with ESD preventing a Macbook from charging or powering on can typically be solved easily over the counter.

iPad 3 Charging Port repair

iPad 3 Charging Port repair

The iPad 3 can be one of the trickiest tablets to work on depending on your experience and background as a repair technician. iPad 3 is built with a similar glass as the iPad 2 and can be opened in a similar fashion (see video). It’s fair to say that 90% of the repairs we see for iPads will be cracked screen replacements. Second to cracked screen replacements are iPad 3 charging port repairs.

What does the charging port do?

In computers and laptops we call it s a DC jack. The function of a charging port is to allow an electric signal to enter the battery of your device and charge it up to 100%. Because charging ports are in use almost every time you turn on your iPad, these parts get a lot of traffic, wear, and abuse. In order to charge your machine back up after the battery is drained you’ll need electricity, a charger, and a working charging port replacement.

Why do iPad 3 charging ports go bad?

The most common reasons for a charging port to fail are due to using bad charging cables or physical damage related to bashing the cable while it’s plugged in.

COMCAST Rep Simply Won’t Cooperate

cell phone unlocking in schaumburgI was inspired/moved to do an article recently based on an incredibly bad experience I had with COMCAST business lately. As some of you know, we computer and internet geeks rely on the internet for every single thing that we do in our lives (including fixing all of your broken things). In direct relationship with our lives, we require fast internet to get things down in the quickest amount of time. Lately I had massive problems with an expiring contract through COMCAST and the transition into a new one was nearly hell on earth. In fact we were essentially without internet on 90% of our equipment for an entire week thanks to their screw-ups and we almost waited another week for them to fix it. When they finally showed up a week later to set us up with internet again, they hadn’t even set up or billed the order properly and because they had to change it, it triggered a -$2000 cancellation fee which slowed us down some more! All those experiences probably pale in comparison to the phone call that you’re about to hear below. The following is from a tech blogger and VP of AOL (Ryan Block) who was trying to disconnect his subscription to COMCAST after nine years. The representative wouldn’t take no for an answer. Listen below and see for youself:

Wow, I’m speechless.
