Respuesta a "Strange peice fell out during disassembly"Both of these are located under the panel that sits just above the power supply, if you're looking at the PS4 from above, with the fan at the top left and BD-ROM drive at the top right. With this orientation, you'll notice a pocket to the left of the heat sink which the black piece drops into. If you look at the left side of the plastic frame, you'll notice the Playstation symbols with the circle actually being a hole which is for a vertical stand, which screws into that black piece. The silver piece is almost directly opposite of the black piece, sitting on the BD-ROM drive near the bottom right corner of it. You'll probably notice some light markings from the metal contact. I've included two pictures below of these in place, please forgive me for the poor image quality. I know this was asked a while back but it took me a while to figure out where these things went since I had no idea where they came from when they fell out. Hopefully this will help someone else who has the same question. Black piece:...
Respuesta a "Disc not being read"It's entirely possible that your particular copy reads poorly at a certain point of the disc. I'm not familiar with the nuances of the Gamecube disc mechanism, but I know in the past I've gotten certain discs that weren't manufactured properly and wouldn't read right (I bought a certain audio CD that was missing the last 5 seconds on every single track and I exchanged it for another disc that did the same, bad disc runs do happen). So if this is the only game you're having issues with (have you had problems with this disc before?), then I suggest finding another copy of the game to try. Usually if it's a problem with the laser mechanism it shouldn't be too hard to find issues with reading other discs, but it sounds like that's not the case here.
Respuesta a "Move SSD from Mac Mini to Mac Pro without OS reinstall"No, it shouldn't be a problem. I've got a hard drive I use with a USB adapter that I use to boot everything from old Macbooks to new iMacs (using the Option key at startup) and never have a problem booting. What I would do is try to figure out which SATA port is the main one (SATA 0 usually) and plug the SSD into that so that it boots from the SSD first. Otherwise, you could just plug the SSD in, turn it on and immediately hold the Option key to get the boot menu and select it from there. You should have zero trouble booting from it.
Respuesta a "Spilled coffee on MacBook Pro Late 2013"Any time you spill liquid on a laptop, the last thing you want to do is give it power or turn it on. The first step is to open it up and remove the battery. The next step is to remove the logic board and carefully clean any and all liquid off of it and check for signs of corrosion (if you do this right away then there may not be any corrosion yet, although most of the older Macbooks I see have some kind of corrosion on them regardless of history). You'll probably need a new keyboard at the very least. Cheap and easy if you're handy with disassembly. I doubt you'll need a new battery but if the charger still doesn't work you may need a new one and/or a new Magsafe DC board.
Respuesta a "Can bevel above hinge be replaced easily"I believe what you're talking about is the clutch cover. It can be removed as illustrated in Step 3 of the Retina Display Teardown. You'll probably have to remove the display in order to be able to remove it. For that, you'll have to do some disassembly. You can follow the Touch Bar Teardown, you don't have to remove everything, like the touchpad and battery, it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out what needs to be removed and what doesn't. At the end of that teardown is a link to another teardown where it shows how to remove the display from the chassis. Be aware that unlike some of the older MacBook screens, this isn't one isn't entirely self-contained. Some of the display electronics are now housed in the bottom assembly. In my opinion, it's not that difficult a job, but an awful lot of trouble to go through for what is just a hairline crack.
Respuesta a "Will a Intel Core 2 Quad CPU work in this system?"According to this page that logic board should be socketed, so it should be physically possible. As to whether or not it will work, there doesn't appear to be any information for that specific model, but it will depend upon whether the power supply can support it and whether the firmware has any restrictions within it. I doubt the latter is true, but the power supply could be an issue.
Respuesta a "Cannot go past white screen"I'm willing to bet your problem is a GPU failure. Have you tried booting into Safe Mode (hold shift at startup until the progress bar completes)? Most of the white screen/black screen/lines in screen problems I've seen have been GPU failures. When people bring me iMacs with GPU failures, what I usually do is pull the GPU out, hit it with 175C heat for 10 minutes, and then replace it. I have yet to have an iMac GPU *not* revive itself via this method. Then I tell the customer that their problem is a GPU failure, and I explain to them that I cannot fix the problem because the only proper way to do that is to replace the GPU with a brand new chip (which are basically no longer available). All the replacement parts for sale are junk GPUs sold by people who have done exactly what I did except they're lying to their customers by telling them they are working chips. I inform the customer that their iMac is now working, but that the problem is not fixed, and that they should back everything up while they can and...
Respuesta a "Can I swap white front for black one, but keep the screen itself?"You cannot swap out the home button or you will lose touch functionality. The button is married to the phone. Glass-only swaps are technically possible, but extremely tedious and time-consuming. The glass is fused to the LCD screen, so it requires a lot of care and patience to remove without damaging the LCD. I don't even bother to do glass-only stuff, it's not worth the time and effort.
Respuesta a "How did my MagSafe 2 burn out?"I've seen a lot of Magsafe cables fray over time with use, they're not exactly indestructible, and it's possible if the cable were to fray that it could cause a short. You said you saw burn marks on the plastic, so I'm assuming the failure happened in the brick? It's difficult to say why it would have died, perhaps it was just a fluke or a power surge. My recommendation is that when you do buy a new one, make absolutely sure that you're buying a genuine Apple charger. I have personally had some good luck with cheap eBay chargers, but I've heard a LOT of bad stories about them (like destroying Macbooks) from other people who know a lot more than me, so I won't be buying the cheap ones anymore.
Respuesta a "Display turn Black, after many times turn off and on, sometimes works"I've never seen a power cord go bad like that, but since it's the easiest thing to try, you may as well try another one. Another thing to check would be if the display appears on the iMac when plugged in. Last time I looked at one of these it was rather hard to tell that there was a display when using a flashlight on it until I started moving the mouse around. I realized that the Mac was detecting the display and outputting an image but the backlight wasn't working. This particular monitor would slightly flicker when plugging it into the Mac. If you're absolutely certain there's no powering on, then it may be the power supply. Here's a link to the Apple Technician Guide for this model.
