The affected machines, sold between 2011 to 2013, may experience either distorted or scrambled video, no video on the built-in screen or on an external display even when the machine is running, or unexpected restarts.
“Apple has determined that a small percentage of MacBook Pro systems may exhibit distorted video, no video, or unexpected system restarts. […] Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider will repair affected MacBook Pro systems, free of charge,” the company announced.
The no-cost repairs will start in the U.S. and Canada on today while those in other countries can bring in their MacBook Pro units starting February 27, 2015.
The affected MacBook Pro models are 15-inch MacBook Pro made in early and late 2011, 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro made in mid-2012 and early 2013 and 17-inch MacBook Pro made in early and late 2011.
In connection to the repairs, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has released a dedicated tool that MacBook Pro users can use to determine whether their system is eligible for the free repairs.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has also revealed that for MacBook Pro owners who own affected machines and have paid Apple or authorized service providers in the past for repairs for these issues will be refunded their payment.
Affected owners of the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) laptop can either carry in their machines or mail them to authorized service providers. Those who carry in their machines will have technicians running tests to see whether these laptops are affected and for those who need repairs, they will be notified when their machine is ready for pickup.
