A short circuit will often damage other components, in this case, the graphics controller, possibly some power smoothing circuitry, resistors in-line with the shorted component would have most likely been damaged etc. In short, the logic board would need to be replaced, along with the connector/LCD. It's very, very unlikely that the board would be okay ...

I found hcqs to be very reliable. They are OEM parts and the site is easy to use. I repair iPhones, iPads, etc. on the side and have ordered a lot of stuff from them over the years.

Since the MacBook Air has a mouse and keyboard connected, something went really wrong with the hardware. You could reset the NVRAM and SMC, but it likely needs hardware diagnostics. You might be lucky if you can connect a USB mouse and see if at least the cursor works. Also, boot holding Command R to enter recovery mode. It's a long shot that the above ...

The graphics are telling you to turn on the Magic Mouse or Magic Trackpad associated with the MacBook. Have you ever connected one of these devices to it? If you haven't, I have to wonder if the internal keyboard and trackpad are not connected somehow. What year is this MacBook? Is it still under warranty? Unless you can boot to recovery and reinstall OS ...

I had a similar problem, and wanted to share an alternate cheap fix. My 2 year old MBA screen was damaged by unnoticed juice splatter left between the keyboard and screen over night. I noticed a difference in reflectance next day, tried displex screen polish, but the damage became more noticeable! It was my successive applications of polishing chemicals that ...

From what I found, it was after all the RAM. I took out both chips again and used compressed air to thoroughly clean the areas involved. After that, it seemed to work. Of course, it could be that I hadn't had the chips in properly previously, as opposed to dust.

The protective plastic cover on the screen is bonded to the complete LCD display and not really removeable as a single element. A video on Youtube ("A1369 13.3" Macbook Air LCD Screen Repair step by step howto guide") explains the removal and disassembly of the display and is one hour long. It involves a heat gun and very careful use of special tools: ...

Had a similar problem. I used an old iPad dock with keyboard and an adapter for the lightning port. I was able to enter the passcode and unlock the phone without using the touchscreen or any button. Maybe you can get such dock from eBay etc. http://www.macworld.co.uk/news/mac-software/unboxing-apple-ipad-keyboard-dock-3221762/ There is no serious way to do ...

In order to backup your iPhone, you need to be able to unlock it. This you have already discovered. Unfortunately, the iPhone has some quite good security, and you have run into some of it here: there is just no way around entering your password. My suggestion is to do something completely different: replace the screen. There is risk that you lose your ...

Unfortunately, there are not many options available should the screen be shattered. Depending on how valuable the data on your phone is (photos, texts, etc). then you might want to check into having the screen repaired. An iPhone 6 screen can be repaired Out of Warranty by Apple for $106 + tax at a local Apple store, and there are also Service Providers ...

In the release of OS X El Capitan, just shake the cursor to locate it. Call out your cursor. Lost your cursor on your crowded desktop? Just shake your finger back and forth on the trackpad or give your mouse a shake, and the cursor gets bigger so it’s easy to spot. (From Apple)
