    I'm one of the many with a 2011 MBP that has display shutting off randomly and often with no way to turn it back on without shutting down the machine. Apple Store said it was a logic board problem and google searching seems to show this as a faulty part that shouldve been recalled but never was acknowledged by Apple.

    I see several cheap repair places online that offer repairs for $100 but the parts themselves are several hundred. What are they doing that I could probably do myself that doesnt cost so much?

    Has anyone else found a fix for this? replace the logic board? resolder something?

    The short answer is probably just to pay them to replace or possibly reball the GPU if you want it fixed.

    This is not something you could easily do yourself.

    Send it somewhere else for a reflow/reball of the solder. And make sure you ask for leaded solder to be used.
