Toot toot!

Hello friends, that’s me blowing my horn. It’s not a huge horn, it just goes “toot toot!” I try not to do that too much, but I just got this email sent over via our Mission Repair Website today:

I remember this customer. I was in the front office at the time, saw her bring in her MacBook Pro…and stated that it was making a “whining” sound. The Apple Store said that it “wasn’t” the hard drive, so I opened it up!

What I found was a failing logic board fan. The bearing can go out on these guys faster than you’d like, and I had a new one in stock. I cleaned the inside of her laptop out, showed her the failing fan, installed a new one, powered it up and “VOILA!” the annoying sound was gone.

It was a good lesson for me too because it’s a reminder to all that those fans are there for a reason. When they start “talking” to you like this one did, it’s time to have it replaced. Once they fail it could cause the entire system to overheat and shut down permanently. Bobbi did the right thing and nipped it in the bud. She brought it here (after the Apple Store 😉 for a repair that was not only fast but affordable. Thanks for your business Bobbi!

Take care, Ryan

Cracked screen fixed on a MacBook.

Good afternoon,

It still surprises me when customers call and ask “Do you repair computers?”

It’s true…and has been for true coming up on seven years now. In fact, I’ve personally been working on Mac and PC computers since 1994; I’ve seen a lot of generations and repaired countless different computers, brands of computers, laptops and desktop units.

Unlike an iPhone repair, there’s not a single “majority” type of repair on a computer. iPhones for example, are mostly in for service to have a screen repaired.

Computers on the other hand are a different animal. No doubt there’s a lot of screen repairs that come through our shop and we can repair glass and LCD’s on most laptops.

Shattered glass, yes. But also hard drives, solid state drives, memory modules, logic boards, case parts, keyboards, hinges, and just about anything else. Laptop repairs have never been easier – and we’ve got the best shipping prices to and from anywhere in the USA – all you need to do is get your order started and we’ll take care of the rest.

Not convinced? Give us a call 7 days a week at 866-638-8402.

Have a great day, Ryan

NEED YOUR MACBOOK OR MACBOOK PRO GLASS REPAIRED?

Hello M:R Nation –

In 2008, Apple introduced a few great machines that go by the names Macbook and Macbook Pro. While the names were not new, the design was completely radical and different. These were the first laptops that Apple produced the a full glass sheet as the screen! These things were and are still some of the most beautiful things created by Apple. There was/is one problem however, that glass that covers the LCD screen happened to be pretty fragile! Misplaced pressure on the screen could have you squinting trough cracked glass very quickly. Thinking back to 2008, we actually had a repair the very first day the Macbook Pro was released!

Apple stayed with this design from 2008 to June 2012 until when the first of the Retina Display models were released. Now, over these 4 years and still to this day, the most prevalent issue we see with a Macbook or Macbook Pro is cracked glass. While it will never causes any major issues with your computer, is sure is annoying! Take a look at this customer unit below:

This is a typical crack on a Macbook/Macbook Pro. It will start on one corner and continue to grow across the screen. You can imagine being a photographer or a graphic designer trying to use something like this. It will be impossible to view your image correctly! That is the same for the Safari surfer and spreadsheet creator as well. When there is a giant crack down the middle of your screen, it is just flat out distracting!

So as we did in 2008… we still do in 2014… repair those pesky broken glass panels with a brand new, crack free replacement! We take the time to remove all of the glass from your macbook and macbook air, leaving behind no trace of the once a tragic accident. We wipe clean all the dust, finger prints and particles that naturally settle on your LCD screen and drop in place a beautiful, clap piece of glass! Let me tell you, if you ever have a chance of seeing this repair preformed, take the opportunity. It is like a dangerous ballet. Flying glass shards gallop towards your eyes for sure!

After all of these years, we still offer these repairs and people are still taking full advantage of our great prices! So if you are finding yourself in this same predicament, click on the following links to get your repair started today!

Mission Repair Express Update-

Hello friends-

Where have I been? I know it’s been a bit since my last blog, but I have an excuse. I’ve been working around the clock on our very first retail store that located in Mission, Kansas.

Mission Repair Express.

I’m back at our corporate headquarters today for a bit just to catch up on some emails and get a blog or two posted. Here’s a sneak peak at some of the progress at the new shop:

IMG_0675

I’m not going to show you everything yet 😉 but it’s going to be completed and buttoned up on Sunday of this week! That means that we will be ready to open on Monday, St. Patrick’s Day, with a little luck of the Irish. The final cleanup and walk-through happens Sunday night so we were able to complete the project sooner that expected and we even came in under budget. All positives from my perspective.

However, when I say “we will be open”…we will be open. But a lot of the retail accessories, spare parts and cases will arrive later in the week. We will be open for repairs, consultations, advice and diagnosis on your ailing device. Will we be repairing on Monday? You betcha. Bring that cracked iPhone into us and we’ll take care of it for you with SAME DAY service!

This is the next chapter in the Mission Repair story and I’m glad you’re here with me. It’s been a hard run working late nights, managing the headquarters and keeping the standards of Mission Repair high. I’m going to let you in on a little tidbit as well – I’ll be working at the new location on Monday 3/17/14 but then taking a few days of vacation starting Tuesday. I’m just going to sleep for a few days, maybe even get caught up on some of my favorite TV shows that I’ve been missing. Some rest and relaxation are in order.

Our official ribbon cutting ceremony will be on April 1st, 2014 but don’t hesitate to stop in the store starting Monday of next week to say hello.

Many specials and discounts coming in the next couple of days to coincide with our newest Mission Repair chapter…so stay tuned!

Take care, Ryan

Is Your Macbook Pro Retina Screen Cracked?

Hello M:R Nation –

The 15″ and 13″ MacBook Pros with RETINA DISPLAY are the cats meow when it comes to laptops. If you have ever seen one up close or own one for that matter, you know how beautiful they really are. We see then come through our tech benches on a daily basis and while its safe to say that we have yet so see anything naturally fail on these computers, the older they become, the more likely that is a possibility. Unfortunately, user related damage and failure is whole other story completely.

The majority of the issues we see with this computer are screen related. Sure, we will often see coffee spilt on the key board, I/O functions going haywire and logic boards frying, but the usual culprit for the owners headache is a damaged screen.

906

From the very moment these computers were released, we decided that we were going to repair these! They were too beautiful to ignore and leave hanging in the pits of despair that is accidental damage. Repairs started at a very high price, which is normal for any new device. But over time, the price tag started to get smaller and smaller until we landed on where we are now. $399.00 for a full retina display screen repair!

We offer it for both the 13″ and 15″ models and we are super quick to get it back to you! This is no ordinary screen replacement mind you. We have to actually dig out all of the internals of your display, shards of glass and all, and start from scratch. Installing layer after layer, until the computer is as beautiful and functions just as it did on the day that you first opened it!

We at Mission Repair would be honored to repair your MacBook Pro 13″ RETINA DISPLAY Glass and LCD Repair or MacBook Pro 15″ RETINA DISPLAY Glass and LCD Repair! Just click on those links to get started, or give us a call…lets have a chat about how we can get your piece of design history back in full working order!

Cheers, Troy

13″ And 15″ Macbook Pro Retina Screen Repairs!

Hello M:R Nation –

The 15″ and 13″ MacBook Pros with RETINA DISPLAY are the cream of the crop, the Ferrari, the…well… Apple of the laptop computers. If you have ever seen one up close, you know that they are one of the most beautifully designed pieces of hardware ever created. While I don’t currently use one (I’m going for this new “Don’t buy EVERYTHING Apple releases diet) I see them come through our tech benches on a daily basis. While its safe to say that we have yet so see anything naturally fail on these computers, the older they become, the more likely that is a possibility.
