MacBook Air retina repairs may not have been fully completed when the Macbook Pro retina computer was recalled on Thursday.
Kodak, the manufacturer of the Mac Pro, announced in January that it had recalled 5.5 million Macbook Pros and Macbooks due to faulty chips that had been installed in the computer’s display.
It said the replacement chips were not connected to the display.
The Mac Pro was recalled because of a defect in the display’s optical drive that could result in the screen’s light sources changing from red to blue.
The issue was detected after Apple had sent a faulty battery charger to Apple employees in April, and the company acknowledged the problem on April 10.
The new recall is the second time Kodak has recalled a Macbook because of faulty chips in the last three years.
Last month, Kodak recalled 1.6 million Macbooks after discovering that the chipmaker had made the chips with the wrong number of die and dimensions.
Konstantin Khrushchev, the former Soviet leader who supervised the creation of the chip that powers Apple’s iPods, was a former Kodak employee.
Kadie said he has spoken with Kodak, and is optimistic about the company’s resolve to address the problem.
He added that he was also optimistic that Kodak would be able to get the new Macbook up and running soon.
Kdak has since told customers it will replace the chips that are affected.
Apple’s MacBook Retina Repair Program for the Retina DisplayMacBook Retinas have an optical drive.
This drives the light-emitting components inside the display, including the pixels and the image.
The problem was detected in late 2017 when Apple’s technicians noticed that a chipmaker sold in Taiwan was not connected properly to the optical drive of the Retinas display.
Khodak was one of many companies that had issues with the chip in 2017, including Sony and Sharp, as well as Samsung, Lenovo and LG.
KiWiKi, the Chinese company that made the Macs and is responsible for the Mac-maker’s Mac Pro graphics chips, recalled its Macbook Retinas on Monday.
The company has since announced a fix for the issue, and customers are still able to take their Macbook back to their stores.
Kudai said he hopes the new recall can be completed within the next two weeks, but the timeline for that might be different.
Apple has said it will issue a software update for the new MacBook Pro Retinas within a week.
