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.

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.
