Quick Note on Repairs

Apple products have become less screws and bolts and more tapes and glues. Cheaper to make and more easily recyclable.  That is not a bad thing but a good one. It all boils down to what is needed for good system health. 


Water damage repair can be tricky because when power is applied to the item the initial circuit damage can cascade downline.  Most water damage fixes shorten an item's life.

What we do -

All things Apple

How it works

Years of experience reveals how to get things done. Here's the process. 


Self - Others

Apple products like all other systems go like this. 


Self: that's identifying problems within the system as a unit. Compare it to health. If something is wrong with the brain or body parts a person gets help and repair to keep running. In Primitive form computers get the same treatment. Examples: Broken Screen, spinning rainbow wheels, black screen of death. All these compare to health. Fixing the self is the first goal.


Others: this is where something the "Self" is connected to is the problem cause. In these cases it might be another device responsible for the problem. Like logging onto a business server or even accessing files from Cloud Services.  "Other" ongoing issue like slow internet or printing failures, or malware viruses all can make healthy macs appear unhealthy.  


The summary is to start with self and fix, then work on others (connected devices). Now, if you are the self-fixer type and identify the problem yourself, be aware that you may not have completely fixed the issues, only the tip of the iceberg. Some are easy some hard and just need  parts and the right tools to get thing fixed. Examples would be to add more memory, install new hard drives, software conflicts and more. 


Who uses Denver Mac?

Businesses - Home Office - Travelers - IT staff

A history of our work has been squaring away graphics artists and designers, Dental, Physical Therapists, Medical Offices, Digital printing, film, video and sound systems. Government systems maintenance, and lots of home calls for creating backup systems, wireless and wired network systems, video doorbells and security systems, recovering lost files or fixing slow systems.  And we do Comcast internet, CenturyLink DSL and Fiber Optic. 


Work Well with Others

Software experience includes Apple, Systems and Programs, Microsoft, Intuit, Adobe, Yahoo and scores more. Apple products like Pages, Safari, Photos, QuickTime. calendars, reminders, notes, contacts working with collaborators, and even family members.  


Cloud services from iCloud, Google admin, Microsoft OneDrive, DropBox, and Crash Plan, Box and similar get configured for collaboration with other users or backup systems.


Many users choose to avoid cloud services due to security concerns or huge amounts of data to push to the cloud. In these cases local servers and backup systems are a better choice. NAS Network Access Server systems backing up all systems and even remote backup to another location like Office to home or home to a friend's office. In these cases servers from laCie, Drobo, Seagate, and most others can be configured.

Drive Health for a Mac

First point; Apple products have become more recyclable and more difficult to work on. 


iMacs, MacBooks and other items can well be fixed provided the needed fix uses the right parts and service. 


2 - 3 years

As a general rule; if your item is 2 or 3 years old, repairs can be pricy. If AppleCare is involved, better to go for the exchange or Apple warranty repair. 


Third party repair shops are common so check around on the problem and costs.  But put this in the figuring: Apple Company repair vs. Third party. Quality and reliability issues are there with some  3rd party OEM parts.


Apple first then third party repairers to compare both price and parts used. 


4-6 years

If the Mac is 4-6 years old, consider hardware repair a good move. A rule of thumb,  the repair should cost half or less than the Apple item's value. So if costs exceed $500 on your 6 year old MacBook Pro, consider it wisely.


7 plus years

If the item needing repair is 7 years or older its not far from being obsoleted and lacking the guts (chips) to be upgraded with the latest systems and security. Usually it's from lack of internal parts like T2 encryption IC chips and other new circuits invented after those older devices got made. 

But some of the older machines are still working well. We've seen 15 year old PowerMac G4's in use. Recommended Do not connect these to the internet with outdated Apple system software. 


And if you got a busted screen or missing key by all means seek repairs no matter what the age. Most cases go like this: Start with Apple Inc. Then check Third Party repair shops, then us.
