MacBook Pro 2018 with TouchBar (A1990)


My MacBook Pro does not start up when cold. It needs to warm up to boot.

No display, no keyboard light. When I open the lid it "turns on", I can hear the fans if I touch my ear on the bottom (Sometimes they turn very fast), but as I said, no video, no Touch Bar or keyboard signals. It makes the sound when I connect the charger. But it gradually warms up after pushing the power button. When it gets warm, I hold the power button for 10 seconds then press it again once before it successfully boots up.

When it gets hot and I can turn it on, everything works normally. I watch videos in 4k, play heavy games etc. I also did several hardware tests and no program reported a problem, including Apple's own diagnostics.

This problem persists if the system is shutdown and gets cold again. If I put the system to sleep it will turn it on again while it is hot, but if it passes too long and it gets cold it won't turn on again.

I took in 2 technical assistance and they could not detect the problem. The first one said there was oxidation on the logic board, gave a chemical bath but the computer continued the same way.

The computer has turned on normally about 5 times since it started showing the problem. But 99.5% of the time it doesn't start normally, until I was surprised when I opened the lid and it started normal 2 days in a row, I thought the problem was gone, but on the third day the problem came back.

What I've Done

I have done SMC reset & PRAM/NVRAM reset but it does not help.

I have also done Apple Diagnostics and says it does not detect any hardware issues.

I have reconnected the battery & display connections but problem still persists.

I reinstalled the system doing a clean installation. I have also installed other versions of MacOS

Atualizar (24/07/2020)

update on the problem: after I found out that the computer only turned on after heating up, I kept doing it every time I needed to use it. After a few weeks he was completely back to normal. No system updates or technical repairs were carried out. Now I have been using it for months and the problem never returns. The computer turns on normally, enters and exits sleep mode without any problem. Now it remains for the rest of my life to be in doubt about what caused the problem, but the important thing is that it is working!

If you can I would install this gem of an app CoconutBattery post a snapshot of it so we can see what it tells us Agregar imágenes a una pregunta existente. I would also get a USB-C power meter so you can watch what the system is doing externally like Satechi USB-C Power Meter

I think we can agree the logic board has a problem!

Software or OS issues won’t react like this. The onboard diagnostics and even Apples internal diagnostics won’t locate this type of problem.

Let’s look at the physics of metal: I have a rod and a hole in a block (both are the same metal). The rod is slightly larger in its diameter than the hole so it won’t fit in. With nothing more than a bucket of dry ice and another bucket of boiling water can I get the rod in to the block?

So dipping the rod into the bucket, which will allow the rod to slide in?

  • Dry Ice
  • Boiling water

So why does this apply here? I think you get it!

You need a new logic board as it has a defect in its electrical pathways (traces).

Time to visit an Apple Store or ship it into the Apple repair depot with a clear write up.

Not a mystery.

The only component that can change its value according to changes in temperature are the capacitors, and capacitors are the most common failing part. I have this problem with my MacPro6,1.
