Apple Mac water spilled repair

Water spilled Mac is often seen coming to our workshop. But rarely we get customers responding so instant to the water spillage and rushing to get it repaired quickly.

This customer was very aware of the seriousness when water gets spilled over a Mac keyboard. And rushed as quickly as possible to us rather than letting it dry

It was great for the health of this Mac. Because we could stop the oxidation before it even began.

It also allowed us to keep the repair cost very low. As we did not have to repair electronics on the board, unlike our other repair cases.

If we closely look at the screen connector, we can see little dark discoloration there. This is where all begins when Mac computers come with no backlight on the screen. The oxidation grows and shorts pins causing backlight chips to burn or even damage the screen connector.

If we look at the screen connector on the logic board of this Mac, we can spot dark areas on the top corner. That’s were water leaked on this Mac and needs a repair.

Cleaning and Resoldering weak pins on water spilled Mac repair

We cleaned the connectors by resoldering the pins. This is a better and more reliable way than just cleaning them with brush and isopropyl as most repair shops do. These pins became thinner after oxidation and corrosion stayed there for a couple of hours.

As the last step, we run it through ultrasonic clean, to ensure we didn’t miss any spots on those small components.

Repair before Replacement

We are committed to reducing e-waste in Australia. And the way how we do it is by educating our customers and providing affordable Macbook Repairs.
Although our best intentions and hard work, this is not an easy task. Customers must accept that cost of high-quality electronic repairs, is a third to half of the price of a new device. While we do the repair we target common planned obsolescence design mistakes to ensure the longevity of the laptop usability.

That said, if we buy a new one or write it off via insurance, it does not guarantee that the new one will not meet the same fate as the older one pretty soon.
Quite often, we see accidents reoccurring within less than 6 months gaps. If we can save 1000$ or even 600$ today by repairing our faulty Macbook is great. That’s an extra half laptop cost ready to be spent on another one when the time comes.
When that time comes is up to us to buy a new one or keep pushing the one we have, but delaying it by a year or three is always a good starting point and saves another Macbook polluting our planet.
