Macbook Liquid Damage Repair

Macbook Liquid Damage Repair is the trickiest repair due to the liquid being one of the worst enemies of all electronics.

The reason for that is the growing complexity behind the laptop circuit designs, as well as manufacturers trying to lock down on repairs.

Instead of releasing schematics, and chips and considering sustainability, they prefer to sell a new laptop and try to condemn 2 or more year old MacBooks as legacy and outdated.

How does it happen?

Heavy oxidation, causing power chip voltage to drop

As seen in the picture, these components have a high density and are small in size. Black resistors on the right corner are as big as the tip of a needle!

Even a little drop of liquid reaching these components may cover traces and short components. This may cause the Macbook to not be able to take charge or even turn on.

Furthermore, a chemical reaction occurs when the battery keeps feeding the system. The longer it stays around circuits, the heavier damage it makes. Have a look at some of our Macbook liquid damage repair cases.

Myths and Misinformation around “What do when spilled liquid on Macbook?”

Unfortunately, there is widespread misinformation regarding leaving water damaged Macbook in a bag of rice. Or even worse to let them dry by themselves.
These procedures may have worked with the old laptops where we could easily unclip and remove the battery to completely stop the power circulation in the system.

However, modern laptops are designed with built-in batteries making them hard to disconnect without having the right tools. And exactly this is the killer of all these water damaged Macbooks out there.

This constant electricity flow in water damaged the Macbook, copper traces that connect each component in the mac started oxidizing and part of the traces got “eaten” away by the corrosion. Also results in short circuits caused by bridged legs of IC chips or other components. There is a great article about the effects of corrosion here.


If liquid spills don’t turn a blind eye on it, even if it works! Do not let it dry, read what you should and shouldn’t do.

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. That’s an extra half Macbook cost ready to be spent on another one when the time comes or our need for performance increases.
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 abandoned Macbook from polluting our one and only Planet.
