MacBook Pro Repair: Solving Power Issues with USB-C Controller Reflow

MacBook,Mac

If you’ve ever spilled liquid on your MacBook Pro, it could cause issues, especially under the USB-C controller, which manages power flow. This can prevent your MacBook from turning on.

When diagnosing the problem, we thoroughly inspect the entire board for liquid damage. If we find liquid under the USB-C controller and the chip seems fine, we proceed with a technique called reflowing. This involves heating the controller to melt any corroded solder caused by the liquid.

However, it’s important to note that reflowing may not always work if the chip itself has been damaged by the liquid. In such cases, further repair measures might be necessary. Stay tuned for more insights and repair tips!
