    Weird Macintosh Plus video issue

    Can anyone help me out? My Plus is stretching the screen beyond the upper and lower bounds of the display. Adjusting the height potentiometer will not adjust this back to its correct size. There is a little x axis jitter - about 2mm of deflection every couple seconds. Tapping the analog...

    MLK Tribute on Apple Homepage - iBook Not Available...

    Screenshots attached. The MLK quote is awesome, (and very relevant for many reasons) but the book link seems to be broken as the book isn't available and I can't find in when I search in the iBook store. Anyone else ?

I had a leather case on my 11 pro max, which I dropped...

    Dead Apple A1016 Bluetooth Keyboard. Is there a way to revive it?

    The title might be a bit misleading, but let me explain. Two months ago, a friend of mine gave me an Apple A1016 keyboard, that he got for 5€. I couldn't pair it with anything at first, but I soon found out that I have to type in a "secret" PIN (0000 in my case), before I enter the pairing...

    Any idea what happened to my mouse pad?

    I have an early 2011 MacBook Pro. I haven’t used it for a very long time (had a baby which kept me busy) and when I have come back to use it the mouse pad looks like this? The tracking or movement registers still but the touch click does not. Everything else seems to be working fine and I have...

    How much is a 2018 MacBook air worth with a broken retina screen?

    Hey all! Long story short, I’ve got a great condition MacBook Air 2018 which regrettably the retina screen is completely screwed ? No idea how it happened, looks as if there’s a small chip in it. I’ve been quoted around £350 to repair, in which it’s not worth it as I can purchase a full...

    Dropped my mac-- flickering & broken screen

    I dropped my mac and now the screen is flickering and there is a white bar going from top to bottom. Is this fixable? If so, where is the best reasonable place to get this fixed? I hope it won't be too expensive to fix this issue.

    USB-C hubs with two USB connectors to the MBP - are they solid and strong ?

    I've already bought a USB hub with a single port to the MBP integrated (see image below).. ...and it's outrageously bad - it was a Satechi brand and the single USB port is so flimsy to support something 20 times it's size and the things you plug into it. What holds in the ports is not...
