How to deal with the water damage?

Updated: Mar 16, 2023

Once MacBook water damage has happened, the fluid will likely make its way to the rationale board and other components. The liquid’s minerals and salts instantly start to eat away at the metal, silicone, and fiber glass components. Frequently, the Mac will work for some days after the spill and then halt working. Usually due to the metals oxidizing and gradually eroding. What to do when liquid spilled on your MacBook?

In case there's a control source accessible, such as a battery, which is supplying control to the framework (indeed in the event that the computer is off), the electric current will interact with the liquid and quicken this corrosion handle. This causes copper and other metals to emigrate over the board. In case this erosion handle isn't ceased, you'll likely conclusion up with an awfully costly paperweight.

  1. Turn off the MacBook: If the MacBook is still on, turn it off immediately by holding down the power button. Do not try to turn it back on.

  2. Remove or disconnect the battery: If possible, remove the battery from the MacBook to prevent any further damage. Most of the newer macbook have the battery installed or glued to the top case which requires opening the back cover. (You can skip this part)

  3. Disconnect all cables and peripherals: Disconnect any cables and external devices that are connected to the MacBook.

  4. Dry the MacBook: Use a clean, dry cloth to wipe down the exterior of the MacBook, removing any visible moisture. Do not use a hair dryer or any other heating device to dry the MacBook, as this can cause additional damage.

  5. Leave the MacBook in a dry place: Leave the MacBook in a dry place, with the lid open in a flip position on a flat and soft surface, to allow any remaining moisture to evaporate. Make sure the surface is clean and Do not attempt to turn on the MacBook or charge the battery until a professional technician takes a look inside the machine to prevent getting the motherboard shorted or other components.

  6. Seek professional repair: If the MacBook has been damaged by water, it's best to seek professional repair. A repair specialist can diagnose the extent of the damage and determine the best course of action to repair or replace any damaged components.
