Water spill on MacBook ... nothing happened?

Hey guys,

so about a week ago I spilled some water (half a glass) over my Macbook, shut it off immediately, wiped the water on the screen and the keyboard and let it dry. One day later I ran Apple Diagnostics which reported no problems so far and kept it drying afterwards until now.

Today I opened the Macbook to see what actually happened. Expected corrosion and so on but actually everything seemed normal to me except for a few things, but then again I'm really a beginner so that's why I wanted to ask here (the experts :D ).

Things I noticed (see pictures):

2 case screw holes were blue (corrosion?) -> I tried to remove it with Qtips but since these holes are so tiny, it didn't work. I also checked the surrounding logic board but everything seems normal to me.

The bottom cover had some signs of water spill --> do I have to clean these? And if so, how would I do it?

.. but apart from that I didn't see any strange things. It would be really cool if you could tell me what to especially look for. I tried to find the moisture sensors but weren't able to (how do they even look if they come in contact with water?)

Thanks a lot!

How is your macbook now? Is it still working? Did you get it to repair store?

by

Glad to see it's working OK. That would be an expensive repair if it wasn't .

Curious (and sarcastic!) question: You spill a half glass of water...a half a highball glass (2 oz.) or half a tumbler (12 oz.). lol

In case some1 is wondering: I didn't do anything except what I wrote in the question (let it dry) and here I am 2 years later and the MacBook is still working great :)

I got one of these 2015 in today with a spill. This is the best protected logic board I have seen to date on liquid getting through to the logic board. I've let the keyboard dry out and will reassemble tomorrow. Since it was not turned on while it was wet, I have very high hopes that a cleaning of these keyboard may well be all it needs. If not I will keep you posted on my progress.

Mine turned out OK after some cleaning. The keyboard didn't even short out.

Is it still working till now?

by

Yes, it is. As a matter of fact I saw another member of his family last Friday to do a repair on another machine.

by

I spilled some yesterday. I quickly inverted it to let it dry fully overnight and here it is, working fine, today.

Glad that your MacBook still works, but that's surprising, because you did the worst possible thing you could have. You turned it on when it was full of water. As far as your battery goes, I would suggest you try to find somebody with the same model that uses the same battery put their battery in and see if it works. If it does, and just go buy a new battery.

Just posting a success story to improve morale. Macbook got completely soaked, left out in the rain. I did all the wrong things, put power on it to try and SMC. Took it apart even though I knew it would void the warranty because this has happened twice before and put me back $500 each time. Pulled the party and disconnected mag port, let dry for 2 days.

2 days later hook everything up and try to boot, nothing but a dim light.... heart broken. I then notice some corrosion on the logic board, run to the store and get some alcohol and a tooth brush. Got rid of corrosion, cleaned mag port, powered right on.

Had a similar but not as serious story. Cup of ice water. Immediately flickered and crashed, normally a bad sign. Inverted and left it for 12 hours. Tried turning on, screen flickered and switched off. This is one hour later and it's working perfectly. I am typing it on my Mac now.

On the second to last picture you can see two little white dots beneath the battery, those are the liquid indicators. If water gets on them they turn red.

Since the water went through the keyboard and you immediately turned it off and over to dry it, it's no surprise that the water did not reach the liquid indicators.

As you can see in this picture https://d3nevzfk7ii3be.cloudfront.net/ig... the keyboard back light is like a thin film so it acts like a water barrier between the keyboard and the logic board. Since you acted fast, it seems that you saved your computer from death, good job!

If your computer does start acting up, I wouldn't be surprised if it was the keyboard, which also includes the power button.

As for the blue. I know that for some little chips and parts on the logic board and computers themselves manufacturers like to write with a sharpie and it could be that they wrote with a blue sharpie and the water came in contact with that writing and smeared it around your laptop. That is just a guess.

I think the blue on the screw hole is more likely to be Loctite #242 threadlocker, an assembly adhesive used to keep screwed connections stable. Loctite comes in various colors, which indicate how strong the hold is. You can break the seal of #242 blue with hand tools, but you have to use heat to break the seal of #271 red Loctite. If you do a teardown of a new Apple laptop, you'll find several screws with traces of blue Loctite

My ex-boss had a 2012-MacBook Air and she spilled coffee all over it in 2014. It went completely dead, couldn’t boot up etc. She asked me to find a way to erase it and get rid of it for her. But i was too busy to deal with it and had kept it on the back-burner…

Fast forward to 2019…

Today (31 Aug 2019) i finally got the urge to work on this MacBook Air and see if i could get into its hard drive via target disk mode to erase it and then trade it in somehow. To my surprise, IT BOOTED UP AS IF NOTHING HAD HAPPENED!!!!! So for some reason, without having done anything, except to just let it sit for 5 years, it heals on its own!!!!!!!
