Ports on right side have stopped working, SD Card and USB
The ports on the right side of my Early 2013 MBPr 15" have completely stopped working. After running a lot of diagnostics, I have determined that they are completely nonfunctional, in fact the computer doesn't even recognize that they exist. I work at a College Book store and we are an Apple certified retailer, so my boss has access to the official Apple Diagnostics and after running a full gambit, the ports are completely unrecognized.
I'm wondering two things...
1. Is there any possible fix for this issue, I assume it's a hardware issue.
2. Is there a replacement for the I/O ports on just one side of the computer?
Is this a good question?
