Please don’t give up on a sick Mac because the Apple Store says it won’t turn on!

Don’t give up on a sick Mac just because the Apple Store says it won’t turn on!

Don’t give up on a sick Mac just because the Apple Store says it won’t turn on. Thankfully, the customer who owns this MacBook Pro 16” from 2019 was referred to MacMedics by the Apple Store. I got it up and running while they waited. The unit was having some power port issues, and the […]

Back in the 1990s (when I had a full head of hair), I was the Mac repair guy for Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Johns Hopkins Radiology Department.

Back in the 1990s (when I had a full head of hair), I was the Mac repair guy for Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Johns Hopkins Radiology Department. I was there multiple times per week, and as a frequent visitor, I had my own Johns Hopkins ID badge. Because I was always taking equipment out […]

I just recovered 33-year-old data from a Mac Classic II!

I just recovered 51 MB of 33-year-old data from an 80 MB Apple Mac Classic SCSI hard drive from 1992. I used a Power Mac G4 from 2000 with a SCSI card to recover the data successfully. We’ve been told that we’re the only folks left in Maryland that still can perform this type of […]

This 13” MacBook Pro got soaked with Coffee!

MacMedics Locations in Severna Park & Lanham

This 13” MacBook Pro got soaked with Coffee! The customer had not backed up their data, which was especially scary as the display was not lit up! Thankfully, we were able to back up the customer’s data. The unit has so much coffee that it smelled like a coffee shop here while I was backing […]

“Trust, but verify” your Mac’s Time Machine backup drive!

This high-quality G-Tech hard drive was used for Time Machine in 2015 but was re-used from their previous Mac. However, it died somewhere along the way and stopped backing up. I wanted to get a reading on how many hours it had been in service, but unfortunately, it was too sick for me to pull […]

I highly recommend this place for Mac users!

Anderson L.Ft. Meade, Maryland “I had a great experience coming in on a whim when my MacBook went down. They took the time to assess my computer’s issues and gave me a perfect solution to salvage the hardware in a reasonably priced refurbished machine. It was all done on the spot and in a timely […]

Be careful closing your Mac laptop screen!

From the MacMedics repair files: Be careful closing your laptop screen. I’d say the most frequent damage is when a charging cable is hidden on the side of the laptop, and the screen gets shut on it, breaking the screen. In this case, it was the end piece of a bellybutton ring, that’s like a […]
