    I have a mid 2012 retina MBP (MacBookPro10,1) and the usb, hdmi, and sd stopped working a while back. I have a protection plan from Best Buy so I can send it in but I can't afford to not have my computer for the two weeks it takes them.

    Is there anyway to easily find out if can replace it myself or what is wrong before I send it in?

    It'll be the I/O board.

    Could be a loose cable, or it could need a new I/O board.

    I concur that is sounds as if the IO board or IO cable has failed.

    You will be voiding your protection plan/warranty if you will change/replace parts of your macbook. Send it in to Best Buy for the fix. I know that you cannot afford to not have a computer for 2wks but that is the reason why you bought that extra warranty.

    Regarding your issue, I suspect some kind of spillage happened on your machine. Am I right?

    IO board detached connector or failure. You could open it up to check for a detached connector; otherwise the best option for you is to send it in. You'll just have to find an alternative computer during that time.
