Hi, I had this problem a couple of months back - ‘panic'‘ issue resulted in my laptop crashing intermittently.
All of the official Apple repair places I went to said that the logic board was defective, and that it was no longer possible to find a replacement as Apple had stopped making them in spite of acknowledging that they were defective between 2012 and 2014. Apple told me that the laptop was effectively bricked.
I did eventually find a solution which did not require my logic board to be replaced, and I have had a fully working laptop since.
For anyone in the UK, I really recommend these guys. The work cost £180 - much less than the £350+ to replace the logic board…if there were any available.
What I have been told (for others to verify), is that between 2012 and 2014, Apple used a solder for their chip boards that did not include lead. This meant that the solder melted at lower temperatures, and over time this caused faults to occur. The fix is therefore to replace the solder for the logic board, rather than replace the board itself.
It took me many hours of research to work this out, and so I hope that this message will help some of you to repair your laptops more quickly and at a lower cost. Good luck!
I've got the same problem! Do you guys recommend someone in Brazil, Sao Paulo who'd fairly diagnose and repair what's wrong with the Logic Board?
I need help as well. My gpu (apparently) has been giving me major issues. I bought this less than 3 years ago in india. apple says there's nothing wrong with it and they just installed Sierra. I really don't want to buy a new laptop. this is my second MacBook that has basically had motherboard issues.

I’m from South America, I have a MacBook Pro A1398 with 15” Retina Early 2013.
It starts up with first sound and black screen. Have reloaded OS using OS recovery and even put on windows using boot camp.
Tried all resets but doesn't work. It running very hot. Can you advise me to somebody in Johannesburg, South Africa to fix the logic board not replace it.

I’ve unwittingly just bought one of the dud MacBooks and now it is beyond the Apple program… anywhere in London I can get Logic board replaced reasonably?
I have the same issue, been to honeywell on Garratt lane (Earlsfield) and they’ve quoted me £500+. I’ve decided to bin it and get a new one.
