13″ Macbook Air 2017 Water Damage Repair

Fresh Macbook Air Water Damage Repair we have got this week was this 13″ Macbook Air.

Customer’s water bottle opened in his backpack and leaked inside, next to the Macbook. By the time customer realised the leak, Macbook was sitting in a puddle of water.

By the time it came to us it was completely unresponsive. We knew we had to act fast and interrupt the oxidation process. So we took it apart for a repair.

Repair Process

Another spot that had oxidation and shorted a chip

We quickly identified the liquid spots and start to work on the board. The good thing about these models is they are popular. For a once good thing of being popular is that there is an abundance of these Macbooks for parts. And small chips and capacitors we can salvage from other boards and skip waiting 2-3 weeks for a chip delivery from overseas.

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.
