Macbook Pro with a Liquid spillage is a common repair we get. This 13″ Macbook Pro was one of those cases.
Liquid spilled over the keyboard has damaged the Macbook to a state where it was not turning on anymore.
Firstly we checked if there was a current consumption by the system. As seen on the picture, we provide 18.7V but the mAcbook is not pulling any current, hence not charging the battery nor letting system to turn on
Macbook Pro liquid spillage Repair Process
Next step was to take it apart and investigate the damage inside. As seen of the picture, Macbooks with a liquid spillage if left untreated start creating oxidation. Which then Shorts through the components and corrodes traces.
We start measuring and detected a faulty MOSFET of this Macbook Pro which needed a repair of a liquid spillage accident.
Located faulty MOSFET is responsible for controlling current flow into the MacBook. Due to liquid shorting the chip, it could not operate properly. We had to clean the area where the corrosion had damaged the contact points as well as replace faulty chips.
Additionally, we noticed that battery was not providing correct voltages, due to the liquid damage to the electronics of the battery charging circuit.

After a successful repair of its logic board, replaced faulty SSD drive and faulty battery, this Macbook is turning on now and working as expected. It is unbelievable how this overlooked liquid spillage has corroded the system so badly and damaged so many components.
If the liquid was treated as soon as it happened, instead of being left for that long. We would not have that many damaged 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.
