The video you're referencing appears to be a hoax of some sort. The steps shown in the video make no sense. If your screen stopped working after your phone was dropped, the screen or some other part of the phone has probably been damaged, and will need to be replaced.

Thanks to this answer https://apple.stackexchange.com/a/295805/300460 from https://apple.stackexchange.com/users/251859/langlangc. I followed it when I had this issue in last Sep2018. However I struggled a bit to figure out the exact delta steps to be performed for the second time, when I came across the same issue yesterday again when I did the OSX Security ...

Based on information from iFixit, you need a P5 Pentalobe Screwdriver, which is 1.2mm, as shown in this MacBook Air 11" Mid 2011 Solid-State Drive Replacement guide to remove the lower case. You need a T5 Torx driver for the SSD.

Same situation here - shut down the MacBook 2018, then wait a few minutes, touch trackpad or any of the buttons and it starts booting up. Very annoying. Found the answer here Turn on (start up) your Mac Looks like it's the expected behavior. From their support page: Additionally, MacBook Pro (2018) and MacBook Air (Retina, 13-inch, 2018) turn on when you ...

iFixIt.com have some of the best step-by-step guides for repairs on just about any Apple device. I found their guide for removing the stand of your iMac here: https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iMac+Intel+21.5-Inch+EMC+2389+Stand+Replacement/113471 I see it as a little bonus that it's based on steps - that way you don't have to pause the video multiple times. ...

There are stickers to change the language. Here one example I could quickly find: https://keyshorts.com/products/us-english-bilingual-keyboard-sticker - the site also has stickers to completely change the whole keys. Be aware that you need to have the correct enter key.

If you want to replace your existing hardware keyboard, you need to contact an Apple store or other service operation directly yourself and ask whether that is possible and what the cost would be. Whether the right parts are available somewhere for a 7-year old machine is hard to know. An easier solution would be to try using a "skin" over the existing ...

Intel Intrinsics are really just a library that provides easier access to a number of Intel instructions sets - such as SSE (Streaming SIMD Extensions), AVX, etc. - for C programmers. The goal is to be able to utilise these instruction sets for parallelisation, etc. without having to do low-level assembly programming by hand. The ARM platform has similar ...

What’s the harm in asking them to diagnose your battery and not even say anything about wanting a free swap? See what they say and document they had a chance to diagnose things before the warranty ends. My feeling and expectation is Apple would not offer to replace things unless you have them perform diagnostics and they see something amiss or feel it’s ...

AFAIK, there is no way to clear a serial intentionally or by accident. The only way to get a blank system serial number is when the logic board is replaced. Replacement MLB only comes with a part serial number but it does not have a system serial number. I assume that you took your laptop to have it repaired? When a new logic board is replaced by Apple or ...

When you're on the new Macbook Pro (post 2017), and you connected your external display to the right side of your macbook, the refresh rate settings dropdown may be disabled. That is due to the limitations of the macbook: https://www.macrumors.com/2016/10/28/macbook-pro-tb3-reduced-pci-express-bandwidth/ The two ports on the right side of the machine have ...

I was having this problem, too. What I found is that when mirroring the displays the external keyboard adjusts brightness on both computers. When NOT mirroring the displays the keyboard on the primary Mac (in my case a Macbook Pro) adjusts the it's own display and the external keyboard connected to the MacBook Pro adjusts the iMac display. I am running ...

So I had this problem and it was driving me crazy. My modem has a 2.4GHz and 5GHz WIFI network. The random disconnects only happened when I was connected to the 2.4GHz WIFI network. The problem did not happen on the 5GHz network. Hope this helps whoever runs into this problem.

a faulty charging cable can cause all kinds of problems. That could have started your issue and it may have grown from there as it is what is sending power to all of your macbook, it is not limited to what it can break. one question I have is what are the circumstances for the use of the laptop. meaning are you using the laptop on a desk? on your lap? ...

There's lots of good software programs listed under this question: http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/20237/can-i-change-the-brightness-on-a-secondary-display But for a no-install solution, I've used the new "night shift" feature to dim things. Works if you just need to take the edge off on the brightness. In System Preferences > Displays > Night ...
