How fix the on/off switch? It is frozen immobile
macbook pro 15 1211 2.33
the A1211 kernel panicked in 2014, and failed again after an initial fix. I took it to an after-market guru who, despite his insufferable tech-snob manners, did a good fix and clean-up-to-speed for $800.
I then moved to a distant city where the switch came loose from whatever keeps it in place, and scooted a bit to the side, where it could still be effectively pressed with a pencil eraser. This worked for about a year, after which the switch simply failed to work, after a short time of being sporadically effective.
I then left the computer with a different after-market guy in the new city (nice guy, this time) to fix the switch, which he did for $170. Two weeks later now the switch has literally frozen in place---it will not move a millimeter.
I could not find a fix on this website, but it does seem a good place to attempt for the DIY which at this point seems advisable.
I express my appreciation and esteem for the professionalism and excellent utility of this website. Thank you very much! ...and, please, help!
Is this a good question?
