MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2012 MagSafe DC-In Board Replacement

1 - 2 hours

Difficult

My Problem

MacBook not charging

My Fix

The repair went pretty smoothly. The trickiest part was removing the keyboard ribbon cable. The instructions were not clear to show the actual location of the section that you have to flip up. With patience it wasn't too difficult to figure out. The project tray came in very handy to place parts and screws in order of disassembly making reassembly simple.

My Advice

Use the project tray to sort and keep parts in order and carefully make note of which screws go where particularly with the fans and the logic board. Also when re-installing the logic board make sure none of the ribbon connectors are trapped underneath it before you screw it down.
