Introdução

The first-generation 12" Retina MacBook has a design quirk that requires connection to low-voltage power after a repair. If this step is skipped, permanent logic board damage may result. This procedure is not required for 2016 and later models.

Connecting the Retina MacBook to low-voltage power requires a 5-Watt A/C adapter (like the kind that comes with iPhones) and a USB-A to USB-C cable, neither of which is included in the MacBook's original box.

  • Power on your MacBook by pressing the power button.

  • Once the MacBook successfully powers on, you can disconnect the 5 W charger, and use/charge your MacBook normally.

    • If the MacBook fails to power on after 15 minutes, there may be an issue with your repair.
