What could cause the Apple Mac’s Logic Board to fail? Updated 2023


The main reason for your Apple Mac’s logic board failure?

The common culprit is dust and dirt, including hair follicles. Some direct factors that can damage your logic board are physical impact, liquid spill, electrical surge, and heat.


Symptoms of a bad Logic Board

  • The battery is not charging.
  • Not recognizing the battery.
  • No backlight/image on the screen.
  • Randomly crashing.
  • USB ports not working.
  • Not turning on.

When a logic board does fail, components lose their channels of communication.  This majorly affects how the computer works. It can generally lead to unexpected system crashes or complete system failure.

Logic board replacements are usually a last resort given how expensive this is. The logic board houses the CPU, graphics chip, and in more modern machines the RAM and the SSD. It is the most expensive part of the computer since it essentially IS the computer.

Why replace the logic board when you can have your current one fixed?

Logic boards with a cracked PCB board or burn holes are not repairable due to the circuit design.

This can only be determined by your professional during an assessment.
