Why do we need Macbook Keyboard Repair?
Macbook Keyboard Repair issues are mainly caused by water damage. On some occasions, however, especially with the new butterfly and magic keyboards we see the mechanism breaking or falling off too.
After water damage over the keyboard on Macbooks, sometimes we are lucky and get away with one key not functioning. If this key is one of the less used keys then we tend to ignore the damage and keep using the Macbook.
Why do only a couple of keys function?
Due to the design of the keyboard, we cannot only replace one key and resolve the issue. As seen above, liquid or organic materials sneak through the layers of the keyboard and damage traces. This causes some keys to stop functioning.
If the liquid has stopped at the keyboard level, we are lucky and depending on the type and amount of the liquid we may not lose any keyboard functionality. But if we do, we do not have much choice but to replace the keyboard.

Also keep in mind that if you are one of the unlucky ones, where the liquid may not have been able to stop on the keyboard. Instead went through and leaked into the logic board.

Repaired, not Replaced!
We are committed to reducing e-waste in Australia. How we do it is by educating our customers on the reparability and longevity of their devices, as well as providing affordable Macbook Repairs here in Adelaide.
Although our best intentions and hard work, this is not an easy task. Customers must accept that cost of high-quality electronic repairs, is between a third and half of the price of a new device. However, with the current trend of planned obsolescence in electronic design, we see more and more Macbooks having shorter lifespans. To tackle that, while we do our repairs we target common planned obsolescence engineering design mistakes to ensure we extend the life expectancy of the Macbooks we repair. Check some of our Macbook Repair Cases to get an idea of the process.
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.
As matter of fact, quite often we see accidents reoccurring within less than 2-year gaps. If we can save 2000$ or even 1000$ today by repairing our faulty Macbook is brilliant.
