Magic is technology!!

by Jonathan

My Problem

MacBook Core 2 Duo, 2Ghz, Black model, Late 2006, A1181.

Bluetooth not found, Heat on cpu-core up to 90 degrees Celsius, Fan got noisy and Dvd not accepting or ejecting disks.

I don't know ware the magic has gone. It's not here any more.

My Fix

After a "practice run" before I got my parts everything went smooth. Thanks to the different guides on iFixit all the repairs felt solid. UNTIL... I booted up my machine and everything worked great I thought. Time for the real TEST, the DVD Drive. It did not accept my disk! Something was blocking the entry. I finally got a disk inside by forcing it in there, not a god idea. The disk mounted on the desktop but now something was blocking it from ejecting. I let my mac and myself get some rest over the night and in the morning I opened the mac again to physically remove the disk from the drive. After reinserting the dvd drive and booting my mac it accepts and ejects disks properly. Now the Magic is back!!

My Advice

My advice is to not be scared by all the Magic hiding inside your device. By following the guides you are safe(er) than just going on your own.
