If you have been so unlucky as to have spilled something in your macbook, then fortunately there are really good opportunities to remedy the problem.
We often see damage in connection with water, soda, wine or other liquid being spilled into the keyboard. In most cases, we can actually save the computer so that it works flawlessly again.
If you have spilled in your Macbook, do the following immediately:
Unplug the power cord from your Macbook
Wipe all liquid off your Macbook, leaving only the inside.
Turn the macbook upside down with a towel between the keyboard and screen
Return the computer to the Apple Lab workshop as soon as possible
Never try to turn on your Macbook once it has been liquefied. You can cause the computer to short circuit and damage it.
What can Apple lab do?
We disassemble your macbook and disassemble the parts to clean up the spilled liquid.
Then we clean the dried liquid with isopropyl alcohol. If it is a bad fluid injury, or that it has been a fluid with sugar in it, it becomes a bigger challenge. Here, in many cases, our ultrasonic cleaner will be able to save the computer.
It may be necessary to change the keyboard if the liquid has been spilled through the keyboard and there was sugar in the liquid.
The keyboard is changed either because some keys fail after getting liquid or because the keys are stuck due to the sugar.
In general, it is more harmful to your macbook if the liquid contains sugar, as it causes the logic board to oxidize. Corrosion occurs if the sugar liquid is not removed immediately. The picture shows a MacBook Pro that has been given liquid containing sugar. Another good reason not to use sugar in your tea or coffee🙂
